We probably take it for granted that we no longer have gather wood, rub two sticks together and then all huddle around the fire just to get warm in your own house!

Pressing a button and having your heat come on is probably one of the greatest things about living in the 21st century! But there’s not just one way to get heat anymore, there are many different types of furnaces available now. Delaware’s favorite HVAC business has a list of four types of furnaces so you can get to know which is best for you.

Floor, Wall or Pipeless Furnace: This is a space-heating equipment that has an enclosed chamber where fuel is burned. It then sends the heat to the rooms above or next to it (depending on where in your home it’s located).

Central Warm Air Furnace: This is a type of space-heating equipment that uses gas, fuel oil or electricity to provide heating through air ducts to various rooms in your house. It’s powered by a central combustor or resistance unit.

Heat Pump – Reverse Cycle System: This is a yearound heating and cooling system. It works by having refrigerant equipment deliver the hot or cool air to each room through air ducts.

Steam or Hot Water System: These types of systems apply steam or hot water to radiators, convectors or pipes.
