Are you building a new home? The process of planning a new home is a monumental undertaking. There will be big decisions to make, including the color of the bathroom tiles and how the kitchen should look. One of these decisions will impact your comfort and your pocketbook for a long time: heating. You’ll have five different heating systems to choose from:
Out of the five, forced-air is the most popular in the United States and Provo. If you’d like to read more about forced-air heating systems, read on or call Neerings at 801-467-3951.
How Does Forced-Air Heating Work?
A forced-air central system’s main part is the furnace or boiler. The furnace is most commonly located in the basement or utility closet. It pushes warm air through a series of air ducts that lead to different rooms in the home.
Forced-air units need to collect air from somewhere. 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. Other methods, such as radiant heating, take a long time to thoroughly heat a home.
Dependable: Forced-air units are known as being reliable.
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.
Low installation costs: Compared to other heating systems, forced-air units are a bargain to install.
