How you feel heat
- You may have wondered why most people
feel comfortable when the temperature is between 70º
and 74º although the normal body temperature is much
warmer, 98.6º. The answer is that the body has its
own heating system, which generates more heat than
we require, and the excess is continually given off
to the surrounding air.
- Since our body creates its own heat, the
purpose of a home heating system is simply to
control the amount of heat our bodies give off.
How a Central
Heating System Works
- A furnace works to keep a home
warm in the winter and plays a crucial part in the
operation of an air conditioning system.
- Furnaces produce heat through the
combustion of natural gas in the furnace's burner.
The heat produced from this process then passes
through a heat exchanger. Air from your home's
return air ducts is blown over the heat exchanger,
thus warming the air.
- The furnace's blower then blows
the warmed air into the ductwork, which carries and
disperses the warmed air throughout the home.
- During warmer months, the blower
inside a furnace continues to circulate return air
throughout the home -- only this time, the return
air has been cooled by being blown over the indoor
coil portion of the home's split-system air
conditioning system. The condensing coil is
typically installed on top of the furnace.
