Forced Air Heating Albuquerque
The most common central heating systems in Albuquerque are forced air heating. A forced air heating system will draw the air from the rooms back through your return ductwork, then back through the furnace. At this point the air is being filtered and reheated then blown back into the rooms through your supply ductwork (the supply plenum ductwork is usually made of metal), then it will branch off to each room with snap lock metal pipe. All the joints will be taped and sealed to prevent air leakage and heat loss before it’s wrapped with insulation to help keep in heat. In most cases, flexible ductwork is preferred because it’s easier and faster to install and costs less then metal pipes.
Note: If you see that your supply and or return ductwork insulation is coming off or apart, or it has never been insulated, have Western Mechanical take a look at your existing heating system and ductwork so that they can help you reduce your fuel cost and save energy at the same time.
Forced Air Heating System Options in Albuquerque NM
Not all forced air heating systems have the same performance standards. The first thing you need to do is ask yourself how much you are willing to spend on a new heating system. What efficiency are you looking for? Do you plan on having central air in your home? What level of comfort do you want? If you’re only going to be in your home for 3-5 years, consider 80% efficiency 2 Stage Furnace. Let Western Mechanical help you choose the right furnace for your new or existing home.
Think about what you like and dislike about your existing heating systems. Is your existing furnace noisy? Are you seeing high utility bills every month? Do you have hot and cold spots throughout the house? Does your existing heating system turn on and off a lot?
