In areas known for their harsh winters, a hot air furnace is a necessity! It has four basic components: the burner through which gas or oil is delivered and burned, the heat exchanger which transfers the warmth from the burning gas to the air distribution system, the ductwork which functions to transfer the hot air throughout the house, and the vent pipe that carries the exhaust byproducts (such as water vapor and carbon dioxide) to the outside unit.
The way it works is pretty simple. The air is warmed until it reaches a certain temperature, at which point the blower turns on. This hot air is then circulated throughout the house until the set temperature on the wall thermostat is reached.
If you are in the market to buy a hot air furnace, you are bound to run into a huge variety in terms of size and efficiency. Let’s look at a few different types:
