Your Choice for Denver HeatingForced air heating and cooling systems are the most common systems used in Wheat Ridge and the entire United States, and installed in over 35 million homes. Forced air heating systems distribute heat throughout the home using air to carry it. The furnace draws room air through the duct work to the furnace, where the air is filtered and heated. The warmed air is then blown back into the rooms through other duct work and maintained at a particular temperature determined by a thermostat. The temperature set on the thermostat is the temperature the air will be heated to. Once reached, the heat will shut off until the temperature drops below the thermostat setting again.
There are different types of equipment that can be used in a forced air heating and cooling system. Some of those types of equipment include gas furnaces, electric furnaces, heat pumps, and hydronic coils. When paired with a fan, blower, or air handler they distribute heat throughout the home.
In addition to comfort, a forced air system can contribute to your home’s air quality, which can lead to improved health. With regular furnace filter maintenance, forced air systems trap allergens and other airborne particles that can cause breathing problems.
Forced Air Heating Systems
One of the beneficial features of forced air systems is energy efficiency. The government now requires that new systems operate at higher efficiency levels than ever before. These higher efficiency ratings will ensure your home is heated more efficiently without wasting heat or resulting in excessive and unnecessary heating costs.
Another benefit of forced air heating systems is the ability to combine them with air conditioning. The ductwork used to distribute heat throughout the home can also be used to distribute central air conditioning throughout the home.
