  2. What is a heat exchanger? Heat exchangers allow the furnace to transfer heat into breathable air.
  3. What are ducts? Ducts deliver warm or cool air from the furnace or A/C in your home into various rooms of the house. Ducts are most efficient when they are insulated as this helps to keep the air cool or warm.
  4. What is a forced air system? A forced air system is the heating or cooling equipment that produce hot or cold air and deliver it to your home via ducts.
  5. What are humidifiers? Humidifiers retain the moisture in the air inside your home.
