A forced air system is a type of HVAC system which works by forcing heated air up into your home through vents and ducts throughout your home. These systems can feature thermostats or heat pumps, and they also serve to filter allergens out of the air in your home. Forced air HVAC systems are very flexible, versatile and efficient. Their most significant drawback is that they are also fairly maintenance-intensive, and need annual cleaning and care to stop them from wasting energy and pressing dust throughout your home.
