Heating system

What is the most efficient heating system? When it comes to home heating efficiency, most people ask this question because they are interested in finding the most efficient, and therefore cheapest home heating system for their home. However, there is a difference between the most efficient heating system and the most ‘cost effective’ heating system because the energy costs for different types of energy types, such as electricity, gas or oil can vary considerably.

Consider solar power which may only be between 10% to 25% efficient in terms of converting the sun’s energy into useable electricity, but once the expense of installation has been accounted for, the energy that is generated is not only environmentally friendly, it is effectively a ‘free’, if not a relatively unreliable energy source.
