How heating works

Central Heating

Central heating systems have a primary heating appliance, such as a furnace, located inside your
home. All furnaces consist of four main components:
Burners that deliver and burn fuel
Heat exchanger(s)
A blower
A flue that acts as an exhaust for gaseous by-products.
Depending on your situation, region and needs, you can choose from heating systems running on
either gas or electric as fuel, or a hybrid packaged system that can use both fuel types.

How it works
Combustion gases are generated by the burners in your furnace and passed over a heat
exchanger. Air from your home blows across the heat exchanger to be warmed. It is then blown
through a system of ducts to distribute around your home.
During warm seasons your heating system works with your central air conditioning. Air is cooled
as it’s blown over your air conditioning unit’s cooling coil, often attached to the exhaust of the
furnace, and then sent over the same air ducts throughout your home.

What Is A Hybrid System?
When you heat your home with a hybrid heating system, you experience the highest efficiency
possible, meaning lower utility bills. There are two primary ways to heat your home: a gas or oil
fired furnace that resides inside your home or a heat pump (outdoor unit) paired with an air
handler (an inside unit that moves the conditioned air through your ductwork).
Heat pumps are electric and can typically heat your home more efficiently when the temperature
outside is 40 degrees or above. Below 40 degrees (this varies on region) a gas furnace will heat
more efficiently. A hybrid system uses both a heat pump and furnace to intelligently heat your
home based on temperature and utility rates for your area. And since a heat pump can also act as
an air conditioner for summer months, you do not have an extra piece of equipment to purchase.
