For those looking to heat in their home in the most efficient way possible, Sciulli Heating and Air Conditioning offers radiant heating systems combined with zone control. With a radiant heating system, hot water pipes are installed beneath your floor, allowing heat to radiate through the floorboards and throughout the room as a whole. With no energy being trapped in ducts or baseboards, the result is the most heat possible distributed evenly throughout your home or business. The water can be heated using oil, gas, propane, or electricity, and with zone control and a high-quality boiler, the efficiency of such a system truly is unbeatable. (for more on zone control, see our zone control page)
At Sciulli, we highly recommend that everyone consider an efficient radiant heating system. So if you are, here are several things to keep in mind. First, and perhaps most importantly is that the installation of such a system can be expensive. While the resulting increased efficiency will offset the costs in the long run, the investment required is significant. In addition, the complex nature of radiant systems can make maintenance and repairs more difficult. Heating your home or business may also take longer with a radiant system, as it will take time for the water to boil and for the heat to spread throughout the area. Finally, unlike some other cases, radiant heating systems cannot be used in the cooling process as well, which may require you to install a separate system for the warmer months.
Still, if efficiency is what you’re after, you can’t do better than radiant heating, and you can’t do better than Len Sciulli for installing your new system.
