Furnace Friday - April 29, 2011

It's 'Furnace Friday' because every Friday is 'Furnace Friday' on this site, Columbus Ohio real estate, home maintenance 

This is a video from real estate guru Ilyce Glink about a type of furnace in Central Ohio that is relatively rare,  hot water heat.

We do have some hot water heat homes.  Less with the big old fashioned radiators (which I LOVE)...  than other parts of the country.  I would have to believe a lot of homes of an age in Central Ohio had radiators that were removed when forced air heat and more importantly central air replaced them.   Most of the hot water systems I have seen are later lower baseboard type systems.  People with allergies sometimes prefer a hot water heating system to forced air. People relocating from other parts of the country who are familiar with hot water heat sometimes would prefer to have a hot water heating system with a boiler.

I found Ilyce's video thanks to Marlene Pellegrini a real estate agent in CT in Heating Systems 101 - Knowing the Difference.

Gas forced air heat is by far the most common type of heat in Central Ohio, wonder if Ilyce has a  video on  forced heat?  Hot air is the most common because the ducts can work with cooling too.

Next Friday is Furnace Filter Friday if you are changing furnace filters monthly so check that you have one or stop by the store to buy one if you are on schedule with us.... me and Discover Columbus OH - Columbus Ohio real estate when it comes to furnace maintenance.  Cooling season will be here before you know it.  I am not fond of air conditioning....

Last week - Columbus Ohio real estate -Wouldn't you know I just bought the house and the furnace died?
