Just wondering if anyone might have a quick answer to this. We're contemplating building our own home (approx. 3, sqft) and we're stuck on the fence between going the 'traditional' route of using a forced air gas system with a/c or going with an in-floor radiant system throughout with a high velocity a/c system. I had forced air systems do duct work furnace and air conditioner install. I was impressed by the work they completed and would recommend them to anyone. They came out and did a quote same day and helped me out when I was having troubles with the gas company. From start to finish they kept my home clean and were very professional.

A forced air furnace is a common design for heating many homes. They are popular as they deliver heated air across different rooms in the house. When installed together with a ventilation system, they work effectively to deliver air conditioned air as well. This kind of furnaces can be fueled by gas, electricity or oil.   The basic components of a forced-air system include: An air handler, which may be either a stand-alone blower cabinet used with a heat pump or a forced-air furnace that includes a blower; A means of heating air, such as gas-fueled burners or electric-resistance heating elements; Duct work for delivering room air to the heater.

Radiant Heat PLUS Forced Air? I did however assume (arggh) that the person making the "dual system" recommendation was basing such on both the plans and his experience. you'll surely have a natural gas driven generator, but there is a very simple way to have a central heating system that operates without any electricity, it provides.
