What kind of heating system do you have? Anyone have natural gas hot water heat? Do you like it?

We have natural gas forced air. But homes we are interested in buying have water heat, which I know nothing about.

I have no idea. We've never had water heat-you mean like the old radiators schools used to have? I haven't got too much experience with those, although we did have electric wall heat at our last house. I wasn't a huge fan of the panel heaters.

 We currently are using an electric space heater only but I don't suggest it...while it gives off great heat and nowhere near as dry as traditional electric heaters its a juicer on the bill! gas is the way to go!

It's like baseboard heat that water travels through I guess. There doesn't seem to be those big school radiators. I guess the updated version of those are the baseboards..?

Do you have a large home? Is it expensive to heat?
