Can I Heat My Home Without Ductwork?

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Forced air distribution based heating systems, such as the furnace, tend to be the most popular heating options in residential applications. This is not to say, of course, that you must use ductwork in order to distribute heat throughout your home. In fact, doing so actually has some drawbacks, including energy loss via air leaks and, of course, the need for ductwork installation in the first place. The good news for those homeowners looking to forgo the use of ductwork in their homes is that there are alternatives to consider. The boiler, for instance, relies upon steam radiators or a radiant heating distribution system. If you really want to stick with forced air, though, a ductless heating system in Everett, WA is probably just what you are looking for. Read on, and contact G & S Heating Cooling & Electric with any questions that you may have.
