Summer: Best Time To Explore Home Heating Options

As the weather warms up, your reliance on home heating begins to decrease. This is obviously the best time for those wanting to replace their dysfunctional heating systems to begin hunting for a replacement. Before you do, you may want to understand the many available options here in Stony Plains. 

Fortunately, Alberta and Ontario are deregulated, the only places where you have a choice of supply, so you get to base your decision on two separate things: fuel and delivery. Fuel options include natural gas, propane, oil and electricity. Common distribution systems cover hot air and steam, radiant and hot water.

Since it’s summer, the prices of these fuel options may drop down a bit so it’s not really advisable to make a decision based solely on costs, though they’re still a good indicator of how much you should expect to spend when the cold clutches of winter arrive. In case you need a recommendation, experts say that propane and oil provide the best heating efficiency.

Distribution systems also have their considerations, usually depending on your preferences and the amount of heat needed to warm up the home. For example: radiant systems are more expensive since installation and repairs usually involve ripping the floors or wall.

It’s of course possible that the existing one in your home may just need a few parts repaired replaced. Either way, consult your plumber first for the best course of action.
