The age seasoned question came up this week while I was at supper with a few workmates.
They were talking about unusual forms of heating, and every one of us got into a debate about weather a fireplace or a furnace of some kind was best for heating your home.
The two of us are all certified heating, ventilation, and A/C specialists. I thought I should mention that part! But anyway, it was shocking to see that as certified heating, ventilation, and A/C specialists, every one of us couldn’t really come up with a definitive answer to that question! Of course fireplaces have their perks and heaters. It all depended really on what type of heating you have with your furnace to decide if a fireplace is better or not! When it comes to central heating, a fireplace may be a bit better in terms of energy use. However when it comes to actual whole modern home heating, the central heating method wins hands down. But when you want to compare a fireplace to say something love a space heater…then the fireplace would win out and be the best method of heating. A fireplace can achieve whole room heating, however not whole modern home heating, so really, every one of us decided by the end of our supper that there is no right or wrong answer to this question, however fireplaces and gas heating systems both have their benefits. End of story. The two of us paid our bill and headed back to the heating, ventilation, and A/C corporation where every one of us work. Funny enough, I had a task when I got back to service a fireplace! How ironic was that?
