It goes without saying, heating your home is essential. Depending on where you live, for at least a few months out of the year, if not a little more or less, you heat your home from midway through fall, all of winter and even into early spring. The only season you can count on not using your heat is summer.
If you’re building a new home, or your homes heating source needs replacing, there is a lot to consider in making the best choice. There are several different ways to heat your home, with central heating, oil heating, and wood heating being the top three choices of most homeowners.
Central Heat – Central heat is very efficient. There is a central location for the system to be, but it has the ability to evenly distribute heat throughout the entire home all at the same time, and brings the homes temperature quickly. Central heat could be gas or electric.
Oil Heat – When it comes to performance, oil heating systems are much faster than both gas and electric systems. Surprisingly, oil costs are much lower than heating systems that use electricity as a source of energy. If you live in a rural area and don’t have access to natural gas, oil heat is a good alternative since you can have a large quantity delivered and stored to get you through the winter.
Wood Burning – Heating your home with a renewable source is a selling point for many. While it is extremely low-cost, you’ll need to cut, split, haul, carry and store wood all year long.
