What is Forced-Air Heating Technology?

Cold air is pulled into the system where it is filtered and heated. The filter gets rid of any allergens and dust that could be brought in with the air. Once the air is heated it is then pushed back out into the desired environment or working area. It is the only energy efficient heating system that is able to combine heating and cooling.
