More Ways to Heat Your Home

When winters get as cold as they do in New York, having a functional and efficient heater to keep your home warm is practically a necessity. At Ken’s Plumbing & Heating, we understand that each home is different, and as a homeowner you have unique preferences. There are many options you can choose from when it comes to heating your home. We offer comprehensive heating solutions that we can tailor to your needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Hot Water Heating Systems

You already need a hot water heater, so why not make it pull double duty? Boilers are essentially water heaters that can simultaneously heat your water and keep your home warm by distributing that hot water through radiators in each room. These are often called hydronic systems because they rely on water rather than air. The hot water can also be pumped through pipes in the floor to create radiant floor heating.

Benefits of hot water heating systems include:

  • Easy to install zone thermostats, giving you more control
  • Transporting heat through water is more energy-efficient than using air
  • More comfortable heat, since warm air rises to the ceiling where it’s least effective

Steam Heating Systems

A steam system isn’t all that different from a hot water system, except that the hot water turns to steam and is then circulated through the pipes. For this reason, it’s also considered a hydronic system. Because water is more efficient at holding heat, a steam heating system is less energy-efficient than its hot water counterpart. However, one benefit is that this style of heater doesn’t require a pump. Steam systems are often found in homes that were built before 1950 and still have the original radiators.

Gas Heating Systems

Considered to be one of the cheapest options in terms of monthly utility costs, gas heating systems burn affordable natural gas to create heat for your home. The heat that comes from gas heating systems often feels much warmer and is therefore more effective at keeping spaces comfortable.

Oil Heating Systems

It is possible to have an oil heating system that is also a hot water heating system or a steam heating system. The oil-fired heating system you choose for your home may work in one of three ways: distributing heat via warm air through vents, hot water through baseboards, or steam through radiators. However, the fuel that is used is more expensive than natural gas, and whether the heater uses water, steam, or air to transport the heat can affect its energy-efficiency.
