Hi Velocity System in Cold Climate?
I moved into a house last year that is primarily wood heated. Two stoves one in the main living area and another in the entry way. There are two NG wall heaters in the same areas. Speaking to the original owners, they used the NG heaters to offset the wood stoves. My issue is I'm a shift worker gone for 2 days at a time, and my wife and young child are home full time. She doesn't trust the wood stoves and the NG heaters are very poor and costly at heating the whole house effectively. I have been looking into a new heating system, originally forced air furnace, but then stumbling upon the Hi Velocity systems while browsing this site. My question is; is this a good system to use as a primary heat source in a cold climate? It seems that it's primarily used for A/C in most installs, but that would be a extra benefit for me. I live in Central Alberta, CA, the house was built in 1978. It's 1600sqft, built on cement pilings. There is a open loft with two bedrooms. Any suggestions to what would be a effective solution is appreciated.
