I have been waiting for our Heating and Air Conditioning equipment to die on me, and i have a forced air idea and I just do not like it, then forced air is the worst.
First, you have to have the entire home be the same temperature, and every room is getting the same amount of heating and coolingâ€¦ Does anyone ever want that? The dining room is constantly too hot because of cooking and requires cooling. I appreciate having a warmer temperature at night however a cooler temperature in our home gym, and the office could even be a odd temperature; Why am I bothering heating and cooling the powder rooms? Having zone control would be amazing, even though I can’t have it with a forced air system! Second, forced air systems are entirely dirty. Dust gets in the air duct and the actual idea and then blows all over the house. Those with asthma or flu symptoms should never have a forced air Heating and Air Conditioning unit. Third, the air duct is a sizable complication with this system. The air duct is not only dirty, however can particularly get a tear along the seams or a tiny hole insideâ€¦ A microscopic hole can cause a substantial increase in the yearly energy bills. The only way to service this tiny hole is to get air duct sealing. Did you think that most Heating and Air Conditioning companies further wreck the air duct trying to repair it? They aren’t careful and more holes come as a result. Having a boiler, ductless heat pump or mini split would eliminate all these troubles. I need our forced air heating and cooling to die before I buy brand new though.
