Forced Hot Air v. Forced Hot Water

ED_8 Member Posts: 1
I am looking to switch over from forced hot air to forced hot water. Need to find some good contractors in Northern NJ. The plumbers I have talked to think it is not worth the hassle of installing the 3/4" piping throughout the entire house. The forced air system is bad for my allergies. I would tie in the existing supply ducts to an air handler for central a.c. for the summer. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    My suggestion

    Would be to keep looking untill you find a plumber or heating contractor who wants to work on your home. Its your home to do what you wish.

    Have you tried the Find A Contractor feature on this website ? Scroll to the top left of this page and clic on Find A Contractor and then use your zip code to find who's close by. Your on the right track to a comfortable home.

    Try Comfortable Home Technologies, Mark Hunt. He would be a great contractor for you if your in his area.

    Don't Dispare, your at the right site :).

    Maybe hydro-air?

    While it's not the best, using a hot water coil for heat usually does not dry the air as much as a furnace. A good humidifier (if you need one) and a high end air filter system might be a beter investment.
