Distribution Method

The method of heat distribution utilized by any given heater is a major factor to consider. If you are happy with forced air heating, then a heat pump or furnace may be fine for you. If you don’t want to run the risk of energy loss and indoor air quality issues due to leaky ductwork, but still want warm air blowing throughout your home, you may want to consider the use of a ductless heater. Want to forgo forced air altogether? Then ask us about radiant heating systems.
