If there’s a single thing I’ve l gained over the year, its that forced air is a total joke. This system is just the most inefficient plus ill equipped type of home heating for where I live. Here in the northeast, both of us have no need for central air conditioning. That means all our houses need here is a form of central heating. Both of us need it to work plus it needs to do so without costing a lot of money. Forced air uses HVAC duct, which is fragile plus requires a superb deal of service. Plus, you’re dealing with a condenser that you need to take care of outside your home. No thank you, I will take anything else other than forced air heating plus cooling systems. I’m a tenant, plus I believe better than to trust my landlord to do a lot of costly HVAC service that I’m sure she unquestionably ignores until something breaks. You cannot count on people in this world to do the right thing, best to prepare for the worst plus hope for the best instead. So, I stick with rental properties that have either a boiler or a type of electric furnace. Electric heating is pretty cool, because it uses no pipe or HVAC duct, responds quick, plus you don’t have to worry about purchasing fuel for it. A lot of places that uses electric furnace heating have lots of HVAC zone controls because they’re simple plus inexpensive with this type of system. Boilers are also a superb alternative, as they use pipes instead of HVAC duct. The pipe system for a boiler is a closed circuit, so you don’t have to worry about dust or debris entering the system either.
