For the extreme cold in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, a boiler heating system is ideal.
While a lot of homes in the local area are outfitted with a furnace, I am very thankful for my hydronic alternative.
Instead of using ductwork to transport hot air into the rooms of the house, the boilers links to a looping network of pipes that circulates hot water. The pipes are concealed beneath the floor of my Sious Falls home and spread heat across the surface. Anything sitting on the floors, including furniture and people, are warmed up and further radiate heat. Because the heat originates at floor level and rises slowly, the warmer temperatures are where they do the most good and allow for lower thermostat settings. There are no cold spots or unpleasant temperature fluctuations. The temperature in every corner of the room is never further than three degrees from the thermostat setting. Heating with water rather than air eliminates concerns with insufficient humidity and provides a gentle style of comfort. Eliminating ductwork also avoids the introduction of air contaminants such as dust, dander, pollen, mold and mildew. The closed loop of the boiler is especially quiet and clean. Because of few moving parts, boilers are very reliable and long-lasting. The radiant floor heating system accommodates zone control. I have a thermostat in each room of the house that lets me customize settings according to occupancy and personal preference. When the temperature in Sioux Falls drops into the negative digits, the entire living space is perfectly comfortable. Plus the boiler helps to keep costs reasonable.
