In fairness to all, we don't discuss pricing on the Wall. Thanks for your cooperation.
I loathe scorched air, but..
I know this is heresy around here and I am not a personal convert to FA but..
I recently had two forced air furnaces changed for a client and had a high efficiency zoned system installed.
What a difference ! Who said scorched air can not be comfortable? Client went from a draughty 70 degree setting to a comfortable 67 degrees in living areas and cooler as desired in the bedrooms. The variable speed DC fan is whisper quiet and unnoticed by the occupants. The system was also upgraded to include the highest efficiency heat pump as a bonus for the environment and reduce the carbon footprint of my clients.
The one great drawback to this system and my experience with many others is the inability to get ductwork cleaned properly at any cost.
For that reason alone it is easy to remain committed emphatically to wet heat and nothing will deter me from converting my house to radiant despite all the improvements to scorched air equipment.
The other thing worth noting is you get what you pay for with any system. I had quotes available at considerably less money but stuck by my high priced HVAC sub.
He also did a stellar job on a new all radiant floor house for me. He promises and delivers and the comfort of my clients is worth every loonie.
