Heating and Cooling Replacement Guide
All heating systems have three basic components. If your heating system is not working properly, one of these basic components could be the problem:
The heat source – most commonly a furnace, boiler or heat pump – provides warm air or water to heat the house.
Heat Distribution System
The heat distribution system – such as a forced air or radiators – move warm air, steam or hot water through the house.
The Control System – most commonly a thermostat – regulates the amount of heat that is distributed.
It is important to compare fuel costs if you have more than one option available. You may find that you will save more money in the long-term if you use an alternate fuel type.
