Heating and Cooling Considerations: Make the Most of Your Home Furnace
Heating is an energy-intensive area of home ownership in which a lot of energy can go to waste if used incorrectly. It accounts for more than 30 percent of energy use in an average American home.

The burning gas creates heat in the heat exchanger, where air is pushed in, then out to the rooms through ductwork.
