In the section where I live, the winter weather is a major season for us.
My family and I often rely on the electric furnace for more than 60% of the year.
The temperature remains below 0 plus often dips into the negative teens. All of us plan for temperatures down to -20 or even 30 below 0 with snow accumulation of over twelve feet. The wind chill is consistently a factor plus makes the conditions feel even colder. It can be dangerous to spend any amount of time outside, exposed to the weather. All of us get blizzards and ice storms that result in driving bans plus keep ups stuck inside the home for days at a time. So choosing a powerful, reliable plus energy efficient oil furnace is a priority. I’m blessed to have a boiler that was placed in the basement that fastens to baseboard furnaces in each room. The system operates without a peep, requires only year to year maintenance plus absolutely handles the most extreme weather. Because it is a hydronic oil furnace, using water to move heat energy rather than air, it doesn’t bring any dust or contaminants into the home. It doesn’t overly dry out the air. So I am not required to purchase a humidifier. It is a new style of heating. There’s no drafts, no cold spots plus absolutely little stratification. The boiler is also quite energy smart. With the heat spread evenly and the higher temperatures near the floor, I’m able to set the temperature control lower than normal.
