One and two family homes often use forced-hot-air heating systems, which include a burner, heat exchanger and blower(s). In these types of systems, hot air is forced through ducts to every room in the house, where it blows out of vents that are usually located at floor level.
Many buildings in New York City, particularly multiunit apartments and commercial office buildings, use forced hot water or steam systems for heating. These types of systems use a boiler to heat water-the resultant hot water or steam flows through pipes to baseboard or free-standing radiators located in each room. As these radiators get hot, they radiate heat into the room.
In this course the student learns the basics of Boiler operation.
