Pros

There are a few great benefits that you’ll enjoy as a result of opting for a forced air heating system. First of all, these systems tend to be more affordable to purchase than radiant heating systems. They also tend to be more affordable in terms of the installation process. Installing ductwork in an existing property can be tricky, but the installation of an in-floor hydronic heating system is even more involved. Plus, if you have existing ductwork for a central AC unit, a forced air heating system can share that ductwork.

Another benefit is that heating air directly and then distributing that heated air throughout a house via ductwork allows for very prompt heating. As mentioned above there are those that prefer radiant heating, which can be a bit more even and tends to linger longer between cycles. However, when it comes to heating up a home quickly, forced air distribution is tough to beat.

Cons

The biggest downside of using a forced air heating system is that it leaves you vulnerable to inefficiency stemming from ductwork problems. If your ductwork is well-designed, expertly installed, and kept in prime condition, then you’ll be able to heat your home quite efficiently. That being said, ductwork often develops leaks without homeowners even realizing there’s a problem, and they wind up paying more than they should have to in order to live comfortably.

Indoor air quality is another concern. Pollutants can enter the ductwork via leaks, and the ductwork can then spread those pollutants throughout the house. As air is forced through vents, it can also stir up existing pollutants in the home, which can drag down indoor air quality. Let us know what concerns you have, and we’ll make sure that you can confidently choose your new heating system.
