Types of furnaces

Central Warm-Air Furnace: This type of furnace uses a fan which will force warm air though ducts – which are placed in all the rooms of your home. Typically the furnace will be fueled by electricity or gas. Some of these furnaces use gravity and the normal process of warm air rising and cool air falling. The warm air will be forced through the ducts to warm your home while the cool air falls through the ducts and is returned to the furnace to be reheated.

Hot Water or Steam: With this system, hot water or steam is sent to radiators or pipes to heat the various rooms. Radiators will actually release steam into the room to heat it while in hot water systems, the water remains in the pipes which are in the walls or flooring.

Wall, Pipeless, or Floor Furnace: With any of these systems, a ductless combustor or resistance unit is used. Fuel is held in an enclosed chamber and then burned. All of this is stored below the floor, and then the heat is released through the floor into the room if it is a floor furnace. A wall furnace works the same way, but the unit is placed in the wall. Finally, a pipeless furnace is placed in the basement. A register in a hallway or room is used to deliver the heat.

Regardless of the type of furnace you are looking for, Jennings Heating and Cooling can meet your needs. With over 80 years of experience, Jennings understands that no two homes are quite alike and we have the expertise to find the right furnace for you and your family.
