Forced air heating is a type of heating system that uses an air blower to circulate warm air throughout a home or office. This type of system is often used in conjunction with a central air conditioner, as the two systems share a ductwork system.
Forced air heating systems are typically powered by natural gas, propane, or oil, although some newer systems may use electric heat pumps. The blower in a forced air system pushes the warmed air through a network of ducts that deliver it to various rooms in the building.
What are the benefits of forced air heating?
There are several benefits to using a forced air heating system, including:
- The ability to evenly distribute heat throughout a home or office
- The ability to use a central air conditioner in conjunction with the system
- The possibility of using zone control systems to customize the heating in different areas of a home or office.
If you are considering a forced air heating system for your home or office, be sure to consult with a qualified HVAC contractor to ensure that the system is properly sized and installed.
