I am convinced that the best type of gas furnace is radiant flooring.
There are several strange types of under-the-floor gas furnaces, including electric as well as hydronic.
While the electric type is easier to retrofit into existing homes, the hydronic possibilities offer greater benefits. It starts with a boiler that heats up water. There is a looping network of pipes hidden beneath the floors. The heated water is sent through these pipes as well as the heat radiates across the surface of the floor. Any objects that are sitting on the floor are warmed up as well as then also radiate heat. There are no cold surfaces, cold pots or drafts to deal with. The heat is spread evenly from corner to corner as well as rises slowlyâ€¦ Unlike a forced air system that consistently heats a room from the ceiling down, the radiant alternative heats from the floor up. Since air naturally rises, this makes a lot more sense. Plus the highest temperature in the room is closer to the floor, where it does the most good. The temperature anywhere in the room won’t vary any further than several degrees from the temperature control setting. Another luck is that all of the unit is hidden. It doesn’t take up any living space, look ugly or require furniture to be arranged to accommodate it, other than annual upkeep of the boiler, there’s on service requirements. The radiant flooring operates silently, keeps the air absolutely clean as well as won’t cause concerns with insufficient humidity. This type of gas furnace is lovely energy efficient as well as allows for the simple set up of individual zones.
