What are forced air systems?
Forced air systems are actually some of the more common types of HVAC systems available. In fact, the majority of homes in the United States use a forced air system as their heat source.
How do forced air systems work?
In simplest terms, forced air systems circulate air throughout a home via a series of ducts. The systems are comprised of several components, including a heat exchanger, auxiliary heat kit, burners, an evaporator coil, thermostat, air filter and, of course, a blower. All of these work in tandem to distribute air throughout a home. Depending upon the temperature outside — and the setting of a home’s thermostat — the systems either cool or heat the air in a home.
Is a forced air system right for me?
We mentioned above that forced air systems are some of the most popular HVAC systems in the country. There’s good reason for this. Forced air systems tend to be highly efficient and cost-effective, leading to reduced energy bills. They are also very good at purifying air, thereby reducing allergens. They work well and are generally easy to repair and maintain.
