When you’re in the market for a new forced air heating system there are many types of systems out there, and 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 system that distributes the heat throughout your house using air to carry energy. 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 preferred air temperature.
The main difference between the forced air heating systems is the type of equipment and methods used to distribute the air. For instance, you could have a gas or electric furnace, a heat pump or a hydronic coil paired with different variety of duct work. All of these are capable of heating and distributing the air throughout the house.
Many forced air heating systems are remarkably energy efficient and can effectively keep you home comfortable. Additionally, they are generally made to be incorporated with central air conditioning systems for year round temperature control. Particularly if you already have ductwork in place or if you’re choosing a heating system for a new construction home, it can make a lot of sense to opt for some type of forced air heating. However, if you’re looking to replace an existing heating system in a house that doesn’t already have ductwork in place, it will add additional cost.
