Forced Air Heat Exchanger
Forced air heating is probably the type most commonly installed. It is much less common in Europe, where hydronic heating predominates, especially in the form of hot-water radiators. Heat Exchanger is produced via combustion of fuel in a boiler A heat exchanger is placed in the air handler similar to the refrigerant coil in a Heat Pump system. Heated water is pumped through the heat exchanger then back to the boiler to be reheated. Heat exchanger incentive programs to home owners who install electric furnaces, in an attempt to reduce fugitive emissions. Many utility companies also will have a secondary, cheaper electricity rate offered to those who run their home with electric heat. A separate meter must be installed and hooked to the heater.
