Do you think I should substitute my furnace with a boiler?

So, I’ve been wondering about unusual heating options.

I have had a furnace my entire life.

I legitimately like the toasty nature of having a furnace, however a furnace is not the most cost-effective heating option. My weekly heating bill has been getting more as well as more lavish because my furnace has been slowly breaking down. I called my Heating as well as A/C provider as well as went through heating possibilities with them. We discussed getting a current furnace with a great SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating. I was on board for replacing my furnace with another furnace however then my Heating as well as A/C provider recommended a boiler as a heating option. I had never legitimately considered using a boiler before as well as want your opinion. The Heating as well as A/C provider told me that the “toastiness” that I appreciate with my furnace will not be present with a boiler. The Heating as well as A/C provider told me that while a boiler will supply me the same level of climate control, it just won’t be as fast as would a gas furnace. My Heating as well as A/C provider told me that the tradeoff for the toastiness is the energy savings as well as the money I save from not relying on a air duct plan (furnaces use air duct, boilers use hot piping). Do any of you have boilers or have any of you used boilers in the past? I have never had a boiler as well as I’m a little distraught about making that change. Especially since my Heating as well as A/C provider told me it would be more taxing to switch back from a boiler to a furnace than the initial switch of furnace to boiler. Which do you love as well as why? Is the cost worth it? I would legitimately love your input on the furnace vs boiler issue. Thanks in advance!
