I have a truly large, truly aged current home that is strenuous to heat, however the heat tends to rise straight up to the ceiling, but if I climb up on a ladder, the temperature is nice plus warm.
Down near the floor, the room feels frigid.
Turning up the control component puts more wear plus tear on the heating system plus costs me a fortune in energy bills. It doesn’t make much improvement in comfort. There’s honestly insufficient insulation in the walls, because I think drafts of outdoor air coming in. I’m suspicious that all of the windows in the house should be upgraded. They are old, single-pane plus most likely leaking air. I’d like to tear my house down to the bare studs plus beginning over. I’d make sure to install Energy Star rated windows, add lots of insulation plus get rid of the duct system. Those aged ducts take up a ton of space, collect contaminants, degrade air quality plus are entirely allowing my heated air to escape. I’d also throw out the forced air heating system. I’m tired of adjusting filters, paying for repair plus dealing with temperature stratification, dust plus noisy operation. I would love to install a boiler in the basement plus radiant heating throughout the whole house. The boiler would supply boiling water, pumping it through a series of pipes hidden beneath the floor. These pipes would then spread heat evenly from wall to wall, however because of the heat originating at floor level, the highest temperature would be found within lower half of the room. I could lower the control component setting, save money plus enjoy more even comfort; A hydronic heating program requires truly little upkeep, makes no noise plus doesn’t blow pollutants into the air; Unfortunately, I can’t afford to tear up the floors or upgrade a toiling heating system.
