Our house is a mess when it comes to the heating system. Years ago, before we bought it, someone removed the zones so its all regulated by one thermostat. Our problem is the family room which is absolutely frigid in the winter.
I've had three different companies out and they all tell me something different. Our laundry room/mud room were added on behind the family room and there are cupboards on all of the walls so no place to put baseboards - so basically no heat in these rooms. Some but very little heat in crawl area under this space. Not a lot of room to put in radiant floor heat due to crawl access.
One says that our finboards are too close to the carpet so not enough air gets under them. Need to replace all and add 5 more feet.
Next one says finboards look ok distance from the floor but take off the covers, if it warms up then we know that they are too close (covers off made no difference).
One says the supply pipes are 1/2 inch when they should be 3/4 inch. Need to replace supply lines. Says part of the problem is that this room is at the end of the run so the water is cold by the time it gets there.
Would putting zones back in have any effect on this?
My guess is that most people in NW ohio heat with gas forced air....not a lot of boiler/baseboard advertising going on here.
I don't mind paying to have something fixed if its the right way to go but with all of these different opinions, I'm sort of lost as to who to believe. What sounds like most reasonable way to go? Thanks.
