Forced-air is the most common in North America. This article will focus on forced-air heating systems.
How Does Forced-Air Heating Work?
The furnace is the center of any forced-air system. The furnace is usually found in the basement. It pushes warm air through a series of air ducts that lead to different rooms in a home.
Where does this air originate from? A condenser draws in the air and transfers it to the furnace.
The Advantages of Forced-Air
Quick heat delivery: Forced-air is a very fast way to heat a home. Distance between a certain room and the furnace will have a negligible effect on how quickly that room is heated.
Versatile: It’s the only heating system that works side by side with an air conditioning system. The heating ducts can be used for both AC and heating.
Reliable: Forced-air units are known as being reliable.
Affordable: Compared to other heating systems, forced-air units are a bargain to install.
