Best Home Heating Options

Best home systems available today

If you looking at a home heating system, you will basically have three choices to consider for heating your property. Most of these choices are dependent on the fuel source that you want to use; oil, gas, or electricity. Some people also use liquid petroleum gas. Of course, what you use to heat your home will often depend on where you live, since some areas may not offer some fuel choices; the following guide will walk you through each type of home heating system so that you can make the right choice for your home. Here are just a few facts about each of these home heating systems.

One of the most common ways to heat a home is with an electric central heating home system. As the name suggests, this home system utilises electricity to heat a home. It is also a great choice for those who are not on the natural gas grid because almost nobody is not on the national electricity grid. However, if you are going to choose electric central heating you want to make sure that you are paying a fair tariff. You also will want to look into an electric home system that utilises storage heaters, as these stock up energy during the cheaper night time rate and then use it throughout the day.

Another, perhaps more efficient fuel to choose, if you are not on the main gas grid, is oil. An oil home heating system is considered a wet system since the oil is burned to help heat water which then sends out its heat via radiators. One thing nice about oil is that it is delivered and then stored in a large tank, so you can buy a bulk supply of oil at a lower cost in many cases. By doing this you can pay for your heating costs up front and get a lower rate.

Finally, the most logical choice for those who are on the gas grid is of course, a gas central heating system. This is also a wet system since the gas boiler heats water which is then sent throughout the home via radiators. You can still take advantage of gas if you are not hooked up to the gas network by having liquid petroleum gas, also known as butane, delivered to your home. The advantage of choosing gas is that it is a highly efficient heating fuel that offers a great return on energy.
