Forced Air Heating Systems –
Knowing the facts about Forced Air Furnace Systems?
Choosing a new heating or air conditioning system can be confusing. Forced air heating represents the largest majority of the current heating systems. Forced air furnace systems are becoming more efficient with new DOE guidelines and can come with a moderate price tag. But other systems such as hydronic or geothermal may make more sense depending on your geographical location and available resources. Forced air heating usually will work best in older homes that have existing ductwork or in new or late model homes when alternative systems cost too much.
How does a Forced Air Heating System work?
Forced air furnace systems distribute heat using a duct system that runs below the floor or between floors if you have a 2 story home. Air is drawn into the ducts from 1 or 2 return air ducts which is delivered to a central furnace. The furnace may be electric-, gas-, or oil-powered. The furnace heats the air which is distributed to the rooms through the ductwork and exit vent registers throughout the home.
What are the Advantages of Forced Air Heating?
Forced air furnace systems offer several distinct advantages over other types of systems as they are relatively efficient and generally will distribute heat evenly throughout your home. Humidifiers and filtration systems can be incorporated into the system when needed which adds benefits in dusty and dry climates. Additionally, you can easily incorporate an air conditioning coil and condenser that will offer central temperature control during warm seasonal temperatures. Central air conditioning is most common in moist air climates such as the east, mid-west and south.
Is Forced Air Heating Energy Efficient?
Forced air heating is significantly more efficient than heating system of the past, such as steam radiators although it is generally known to be less efficient than radiant heating because of heat lost as air travels through the heating ducts. However, forced air heating is more efficient than the use of portable space heaters except when heating very small spaces. Homes that have south faced rooms that receive a lot of warmth generated by the sun can help the raise the efficiency of forced air heating systems during colder months.
Is Forced Air Heating Right for Me?
One thing we haven’t touched on is the dust factor associated with forced air heat. Though there are pros and cons associated with the different ways to heat you home, the movement of air when using forced air furnaces will increase the spread of dust and dirt and may not be the best choice for someone that is sensitive to these issues.
Also, whether forced air heating is right for you depends on the age of your home and how much you’re willing to spend on a new heating system. Forced air heating makes the most sense in older homes with existing ductwork. Installing ductwork in a home previously heated by steam or other means can be prohibitively expensive. On the other hand, some old ductwork contains asbestos, which should be removed for safety reasons. For new homes, forced air heating provides a good level of efficiency at moderate cost. Other heating systems, including electric resistance heating, offer better efficiency but at a higher cost.
Forced air heating systems, when correctly installed, can save you money and keep your home at a comfortable temperature throughout winter. As mentioned previously, forced air heating offers certain advantages over other systems, including air filtration, humidification and compatibility with air conditioning systems. But forced air heating isn’t right for everyone.
