2 Types of Furnaces That Are More Common Than You Think
Posted By:

Gas and heating furnaces are usually categorized into different types on the basis of the number of times heat is exchanged inside the equipment.

A heat exchanger is a cycle of pipes and tube used to transfer heat from the furnace to your home. The steaming hot gases generated by the burner enter and travel through the exchanger. The combustible gases are then cooled down and directed towards the venting pipe through an air blower. Through the draft inducer the hot air is released out of the home.

As the gases travel through the heat processor, the heat is circulated into the exterior walls. This heat is then absorbed by the exterior walls as a furnace blower moves air over them. This heated air is then moved into the home through the ducts and is circulated throughout the rooms keeping them warm.

A few different types of furnaces are described below:

1. Central Air Furnace:

It is one of the types of furnaces that are basically space-heating equipment. Space-heating equipment are the ones in which the central resistance unit provides warm air which is then circulated through the ducts and into the homes.

Central Air furnaces are also the few furnace types that don’t include a heat pump. The furnace runs through a forced-air system that uses a fun to force the air through the ducts similar to how a heat exchanges works. The air sometimes is distributed by gravity if the heat exchanger is replaced by a gravity furnace. The compartment relies on the innate stream of hot air up and cold air down. The warm air arises through the ducts while the cooler air moves through the ducts and returns to the furnace. The air returned is then reheated, thus concluding an exchange cycle.

2. Floor Furnace

A floor furnace is available in many different types depending on its installation location. These types of furnaces can be placed under the floor or against the wall. A unique feature of these furnaces is that they are pipe less. This means that they don’t require any expensive plumbing arrangement. In a floor furnace the fuel is burnt in an enclosed chamber inside the resistance unit. Apart from fuel combustion, wall furnaces also allow for electrical resistance of heat to generate warmth inside the rooms of a building.

Since a floor furnace is fixed beneath the ground it delivers the heat directly to rooms above. While a wall furnace can also deliver the heated air through a room on one or both planes of the wall. Finally a pipeless furnace is fixed in a cellar and circulates heat through a big resistor located in a room’s floor or directly below the hallway.

The above types of furnaces are mostly seen across homes in the country. To learn more about how you can select the furnace which best suits your needs and keep it well maintained, contact the nearest professional heating and air service.
