Forced Air Heating

Mon 13 Feb, 2012 10:31 am
When it comes to central air conditioning and forced air heating you because we’ve discovered that many systems today are incorrectly installed because they are either undersized for their required use or just not properly installed the first time. A plumbing company can help you with that. So, what does forced air heating actually mean?

A forced-air system is a system that uses air as its heat transfer medium. These kind of systems rely on ductwork, vents, and plenums for the air distribution and they are different from the actual heating and air conditioning systems. The air is carried by the return plenum from several large return grills (vents) to a central air handler for re-heating.

All air handlers consist of an air filter, blower, heat exchanger/element/coil, and various controls. The temperature is whatever you set your thermostat to, and when the desired temperature is reached, the heat will shut off until the temperature drops down again. The type of equipment that heats the air represents the main difference between the types of forced air heating systems.

When deciding the type of heating you are going to use for your home it's best to consider both advantages and disadvantages for each type of heating you are considering. For example, using a forced air heating systems has some advantages like it is simple and affordable. This simplicity helps keep the costs of forced air heat fairly low compared to radiant heating.
Its simplicity helps keep costs fairly low compared to radiant heating. Also, it's an All-In-One-System which can be used to heat, cool and ventilate the home and it is energy efficient. But it has also its disadvantages like uneven heating and cooling, pollen and dust can be carrier inside and you can also hear the noise caused by the fan blowing the air thorough the events.

Hello Friends,

Chances are that you’ve heard the term forced air heating before, particularly if you’re in the market for a new home heating system. But what does that actually mean? The truth is that if you’re asking this question, you’re not alone. There are so many types of home heating systems out there that it’s common to be a bit confused and overwhelmed by it all.

The truth is that a forced air heating system is simply a heating system that distributes heat throughout your house using air to carry it. In this type of system, heated air travels through a system of ducts and is expelled through vents into the different rooms and areas of your home in order to maintain a particular temperature. That temperature, of course, is whatever you set your thermostat to, and when the desired temperature is reached, the heat will shut off until the temperature drops down again.

Thanks and Regards,
Steve Holmes
