Is A Forced Air Heating Solution Right For Your Home?

Do you have the option to pick the type of heating solution that you use for your home and you're wondering which one you want? If so, you should know more about the reasons for and against using a forced air heating system. 

Why Use Forced Air Heating

The main reason to pick a forced air heating system is because it is very cost-effective. Many homes that have air conditioning already have the ductwork in place, so it is just a matter of connecting the furnace and air handler to the ductwork. It can also be cost-effective if you do not have ductwork in place and want to add forced air cooling as well. It will all use the same ductwork to get the job done.

A forced air heating system is also incredibly easy to use. There will be a thermostat in your home that you set and forget about, and a smart thermostat will even allow you to control the system from your phone. There is only one temperature that needs to be set to heat your entire home.

Forced air heating is also going to work very quickly. You'll feel that heat coming out of the vents as soon as the furnace turns on, and you can get the entire home to a comfortable temperature within a reasonable amount of time. 

Why Avoid Forced Air Heating

There are other heating methods that are going to feel much more comfortable. This includes radiant heat, which runs hot water pipes under the floor so that the heat radiates up from the ground. Forced air methods can have hot and cold spots, which creates uneven heating.

Any forced air system is going to be noisy. If you have the furnace on the first floor of your home, then you are going to heat the furnace every time it turns on. This may not be desirable to you, and you prefer a more quiet heating system as a result. 

Forced air also tends to produce dry air. You may need to add humidifiers to your home in the winter in order to avoid the discomfort that comes with dry air. You also have the option to add a whole home humidifier to your HVAC system if that is within your budget.
