What is the best heating or cooling system for our timber frame home?
This really depends on your requirements, budget and climate. Because of the superior insulating properties of the Murus SIPs used to enclose all Woodhouse® timber frames, your home will be more easily and evenly heated than any other type of home. Generally it will require about half the BTU required for a conventionally built home of the same size and volume. We've used everything from in-floor and/or below-floor radiant heat, solar heating, wood stove heating, forced hot air, electric radiant baseboard, and hot water baseboard heat. Your Woodhouse® representative is experienced in sorting through these issues and will help you determine what system is best for you.
