Forced air systems are comparable to furnace heating systems. They both operate by heating water to the point of steam, which directly takes the place of the cool air filling your rooms. Forced air systems are very common in homes. The main reason is because they are relatively less expensive to install than other systems. Secondly, they are capable of sharing the same ducts and routes as most air-conditioning systems. This fact alone means that most technicians are highly skilled at installing these systems. Forced air systems come in a wide range of brands, quality, and AFUE’s.
The best forced air systems are going to cost slightly more than some of the lower end boiler systems. Although, these systems aren’t as reliable as hot water systems they are far safer when it comes to possible damage to the unit and your home. It’s also notable that forced air systems don’t guarantee the same level of air quality as say a boiler but they do guarantee safety from the harsh conditions of the winter. In a nutshell what this means is the water used by other heating systems can be subject to freezing during colder periods which can cause tremendous damage to your pipes, equipment, and sometimes inspiring power outages.
In addition to this most contractors, heating technicians, and comfort experts are very familiar with this system, which means you have a wide selection of sources for any installation, repairs, and maintenance. Within a hot forced air system, air that’s been heated by your furnace or heat exchanger is then distributed throughout your residential or commercial space via air ducts. Your furnace boiler or water heater makes the hot air. We install, repair and replace hot forced air systems all over New Jersey. Some factors we always recommend our customers to look at in case they’re having problems with a hot forced air system are:
Loud Noises: Banging noises are not normal. This occurs when your air ducts are disconnected. Loose air ducts cause vibrations, which lead to the banging sounds. This is a common problem and was fully capable of fixing it quickly.
Inconsistent Blower Speed: It’s very important to get the speed of the hot air flowing through your system right. If it’s too fast or slow, this makes for an inefficient system.
Loss of Heat: The loss of heat within your air ducts has to do with a lack of proper insulation. If your losing heat we can fix the situation by installing fiberglass or aluminum-face insulation.
