Our home is a tri-level home and typically these homes experience uneven heating. With electric baseboard heating I find that I can't own the home in a way that keeps it evenly heated. One of the things that you learn about your home after moving in is there are many different micro-climates within your even home. Living in the tri-level home you have 3 different zones that you're trying to heat and it can be a challenge for most people. I find that by zoning your heat to the rooms that you spend the most time in your able to conserve energy in doing so. One of the things that I like best about electric baseboard heat is the redundancy that is built in in case of failure. Whereas if you're forced air furnace goes down you're done. I like the idea redundancy being built in, however the Achilles heel is having Electric. If your electric goes down you're completely down. Having backup alternative sources of heat is something that has always been a priority to me. In my home I have a fireplace and always at least one cord of wood to be able to make it for at least 2 or 3 days without electric. If you are considering alternative forms of heat electric baseboard heating (radiant heat) might be the right option for you in certain cases.
My personal feeling is on choosing forms and technologies if he is to mix it up a bit have a little bit of each.
