Forced air systems are commonly used throughout the United States as they were prevalent throughout the 80s, 90s, and 2000s. A lot of homes and businesses already have ducts that forced air systems utilize. In general, forced air systems usually refer to heating systems, while central air systems typically refer to cooling systems. However, they are frequently used interchangeably. Here at TemperaturePro Phoenix, we provide forced air installation, repair, and maintenance throughout the broader Phoenix area for homes and businesses. In this blog, we are going to guide you through the basics of forced air systems.
A Dive Into Forced Air Systems
Forced Air systems are popular amongst homeowners and business owners throughout the United States because they can efficiently heat or cool any room. Because the Phoenix area residents usually worry about cooling their homes and businesses, we will focus more on the cooling aspect of forced air systems.
These systems start outside with a condenser (the metal cube you see outside houses and businesses). The condenser grabs the air and is pushed inside. The forced air system circulates cold air through a relatively simple network of supply and return ducts. As time moves on, the cool air naturally becomes warmer. The air then flows back through the central air conditioner through return ducts. This cycle repeats as long as you have your system running. This allows constant cool air to be able to run throughout your home or business.
