Updating heating from radiators with vents
My previous homes all had baseboard and I never appreciated it fully until now.
In addition to the ductwork/health issues (which can be serious for anyone in the house who has allergies of any kind), keep in mind that your air handler will be working almost year-round, for heat as well as cooling.
These systems are normally installed in an attic and use discreet, hidden piping to keep your home at a consistent, cool temperature even during the hottest of summers.
The radiator air vent, or air valve (also called a steam vent or steam valve), is used only in one-pipe steam boiler systems.
Installing central heating is a difficult job and one that requires careful planning and a sound understanding of the necessary materials.
Though it's possible to perform a large part of installing central heating yourself such as selecting the boiler and radiators, laying the pipes, and even installing the control system, you'll need a certified contractor to connect the boiler to the gas supply and check the entire system to see if it's safe to use and if it will effectively heat your home.
Since we would likely install A/C into any home we purchased, is it possible to convert to forced air heat as well? I had that kind of heat in NE when I lived there and now have forced air. Forced air heat produces all kinds of dust that travels through your home, spreads around all kinds of nasty stuff.
We are looking to purchase a home in CT and I have been surprised with how many homes have baseboard heating, even homes built within the last 15 years. But if it's not electric which is very expensive, and it's hot water heated by gas or something like that, I would think really long and hard about switching the system for many reasons.
Simply choose the height and length that best suits your design and output requirements.
Wall panels are available in lengths 20 inches to 29-1/2 feet in increments of 2 inches.
Unico offers a high-velocity air conditioning system with tiny vents that can run through narrow spaces, allowing air to penetrate rooms through small ducts.
The vents are hidden and run between walls and through attics for minimum disruption to your decor, while the condenser unit sits outside the home.
