It can get very cold in winter. In the past when someone wanted to hate their entire home, they needed to use individual space heaters, or wood stoves to keep heat circulating. These days, the primary way we stay comfortable in winter is through utilization of a central heating unit. A central heating unit is a heating system that either circulates hot air or hot water throughout a home via ducts or pipes and radiators, respectively. Central air is how people went from individually heating rooms to heating the entire home with one system, centralized in one location. The air or water is heated in the furnace or boiler, respectively, then sent out. If your heat goes out when you need it most, you can call us for our 24 hour emergency service. If you’re looking to have central heating repair services for your home or business in the Stryker, Bryan, and Napoleon, OH area, the certified HVAC professionals of Woolace & Johnson can help if you call 419-546-8424.
Types of Central Air Systems
There are several different types of central heating units that a home or business can use. Each has its own benefits and drawbacks. When determining what kind of central heating unit you have, or if you should replace your current system, these are the things to keep in mind.
- Gas Furnace A gas furnace is a central heating device that utilizes natural gases to heat up air and push it to different parts of the home through a duct system in the ceiling, walls, and floor.
- Electric Furnace An electric furnace operates similarly to a gas furnace, except the heating elements are powered by electricity and not natural gas. This has its own benefits and drawbacks.
- Boiler A boiler is a central heating system that heats water in a closed system, circulates it through the walls of the house, and pushes heat out into the air through radiators.
