When asked what type of equipment heats the majority of the homes and a lot of businesses in not only the Minnesota but the entire United States it is hands down the warm air furnace.
Just about every new home is installed with a warm air furnace to properly heat the home. It entails a square unit typically within the basement of the home which is then attached to aluminum ductwork throughout the various spaces which allows the warm air to travel as needed to heat the home all winter long.
Living in Minnesota, it is crucial that the furnace is sized correctly to not only effectively heat the home but to obtain the maximum efficiency all year long. Thankfully, in this day and age the technology is so great that the efficiency of many of the new forced air furnaces are almost 100% efficient. What this means is almost all of the gas you are paying for to heat your home is actually being used to heat the home and is not being exhausted to the atmosphere. This not only saves money but is healthier for the environment.
There are many different styles and efficiencies as well as numerous fan/blower motors and flame settings. All of these combine with an internal computer which assists the thermostat in deciding the most optimal settings for the furnace, thus creating the most efficient and comfortable heat available.
One of the greatest benefits of having a warm air furnace in your home or business is the ability to regulate the indoor air quality. We’ve all heard about all of the harmful chemicals that leach into our living and working spaces. These harmful chemicals are given off from everything from our cooking to our furniture and even the paint we use to color our walls.
So it is more important than ever to utilize a furnace to filter out all of the harmful chemicals we are subject to. Having a knowledgeable heating contractor like Cities1 Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning come out and explain all of the options available is necessary to protect the health of your families and coworkers.
