Radiant Heat Vs. Forced Air?
I Am Building A House From The Ground Up And Can'T Decide Between Radiant Heat Or Forced Air With Natural Gas As My Fuel. I Am Making The House Air Tight With Polyurethane Foam Spray On All Exterior Walls And Ceiling. I Am Putting A.C. In As Well. I Can'T Decide What Is My Best Bet. Please Help Me!

Edit
Forget the radiant; it is the most expensive heating to operate. At one time it was widely installed in the ceilings, but this was before whole house A/C heat pumps were available like they are now. Since you are putting in whole-house A/C with ducts, anyway, put in a heat pump. It doesn't cost much more. The efficient reverse-cycle heating delays the need to activate the other heating. Better units will have good low amient performance. ARI shows ratings at around 45F and 17F. Get one with an SEER that will give you the best compressor warranty. Refrigrant R-22 is going to be phased- out in a few years so look at the option of the new refrigerant for your unit.

An air handling unit may be provided with a gas-fired air heater in the unit instead of resistance strip heat, but look at the installation costs and projected operating costs.

Never mind the expensive foam spray. Concentrate your insulation considerations in the ceiling/attic where most of the heat is lost. Use 9-12 inches of fiberglas bats. Tack the plastic sheet vapor barrier to the bottom of the roof trusses before installing the sheet rock ceiling. Use small windows.

You must have a fresh air supply into your home so that the exhaust fans will work. Usually the exhaust fans draw-in non-conditioned , non filtered outside air. Or you can bring a fresh air duct straight to the unit return air filter.

Use a supplemental high efficient pleated filter assembly of the AprilAire or Space Gard style with the unit. It should last at least six months between element changes. Get the replacement filters from Lowes or Home Depot., and not from A/C contractors who will over-charge.

Use a deadband-style thermostat.
