What School Never Taught You About Oil Fired Forced Air Heating

Source of Fuel In these type heating systems, the source of fuel is oil. This oil is sometimes replaced with a blend that includes biodiesel. This use of biodiesel decreases dependency upon oil reserves and increases fuel consumption efficiency. This heating method is often found in the northeast sections of the United States as they [...]

If You Read One Article About Gas Fired Hydronic Heating, Read This One!

Gas Fired The “gas fired” part of this type of heating is very clear. This type of heating system burns fuel sources that are kept under constant low pressure. There is an installed pressure regulator that keeps the pressure at a constant. Hydronics The field of hydronics is an area that transfers heat through a [...]

What Everyone Is Saying About Gas Fired Forced Air Heating

Heating Process Gas fired, forced air heating systems use a fuel source that is kept under constant low pressure being fed to a burner. There is a blower that forces air through the heat exchanger, to the ductwork, then to the heat registers located throughout the structure. The type of burner is either an electric [...]

Heating and Air Conditioning Systems

Heating Gas Fired Gravity Heating System Heating and air conditioning systems include this type of heating that uses propane, LP gas, artificial gas and natural gas as the fuel source. The fuel is controlled by a pressure regulator that allows the gas to be sent to the burner. The fuel is kept under low pressure [...]
