Water heating is more efficient for heating buildings and was the standard many years ago. Today forced air systems can double for air conditioning and are more popular.
Energy efficiency can be improved even more in central heating systems by installing zone heating system. This allows a more granular application of heat, similar to non-central heating systems. Zones are controlled by multiple thermostats. In water heating systems the thermostats control zone valves, and in forced air systems they control zone dampers inside the vents which selectively block the flow of air. In this case, the control system is very critical to maintain a proper temperature.
Geothermal Heat Pump
Geothermal heat pumps are similar to ordinary heat pumps, but instead of using heat found in outside air, they rely on the stable, even heat of the earth to provide heating, air conditioning and, in most cases, hot water.
While they may be more costly to install initially than regular heat pumps, they can produce markedly lower energy bills—30 percent to 40 percent lower, according to estimates from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
