Types of heating systems

Below are the most common types of ways to heat your home.

Furnaces and Boilers

By far the most common way to heat a home.

Wood and Pellet-Fuel Heating

Provides a way to heat your home using biomass or waste sources.

Electric Resistance Heating

Among the most expensive ways to heat a home.

Active Solar Heating

Uses the sun to heat either air or liquid and can serve as a supplemental heat source.

Radiant Heating

Can draw on a number of energy sources, including electricity, boilers, solar energy, and wood and pellet-fuel heating.

Small Space Heaters

Less efficient than central heating systems, but can save energy when used appropriately. While forced-air heating systems rely on the same type of ducts used by heat pumps and air conditioners, water and steam heat systems use radiators that only deliver heat.

Heat Distribution Systems

Heat is distributed through your home through a variety of ways whether forced-air systems, central air conditioning, heat pump systems, radiant heating, steam radiators or hot water radiators.

Considerations when selecting heating fuel and system types

Considerations when selecting heating fuel and system types

Selecting the fuel and heating system best suited for your needs depends on the following factors:

  • Cost and availability of the fuel/energy source
  • Type of system used to convert that fuel to heat and how the heat is distributed in your house
  • Cost to purchase, install, and maintain the heating appliance
  • Heating system and delivery system's efficiency
  • Environmental impacts associated with the heating fuel.
