Choice of Heating System

When people build a small house they generally spend much time in choosing the heating system. What’s most important, however, is first to think whether the energy needs of the house can be reduced by better insulation and sealing.

The price of energy in its different forms will in all likelihood increase during the life span of the building. Investments that aim at reducing the building’s heating requirements will always be more worthwhile in shortening the time in which they pay for themselves.
