Radiant, Steam, and how Forced Hot Air

We have looked at Radiant Heat, Steam heat, and today let’s take a look at Forced Hot Air.  Remember when we mentioned that a Furnace is a device that makes Hot Air as compared to a Boiler that makes Hot Water.

In today’s discussion we will be talking about a Furnace and its ability to make Hot Air which is then pumped throughout the house.

Its Cold outside, we need heat!

The other day we started a conversation about how to heat your new home.  Every “heating device” is a machine that makes either Hot Water or it makes Hot Air.  Technically a Furnace make hot air and a Boiler makes hot water. 

In today’s discussion we are not talking about The Boiler.  Today we will talk about Radiant Heat

Every home will need heat!

Several days ago, we talked about the tasks your carpenter will need to do inside the home. 

Today let’s take a look at one of several ways to heat your new home.  Almost always the plumber is also your heating technician.  When you are ordering your new home from Vermont Modular Homes you will need to decide how you plan on heating your home.  This is not an easy question as there are so many options available to you.

How much work is there for the carpenter?

Many times, the first job for the carpenter is to build the stairs down to the basement.  We talked about this yesterday and the obvious reason for building those stairs first is a safety concern.  Going up and down on a ladder is not as safe as using a set of stairs.  But, now that those stairs are done it is time to start on the finish work.

And you will also need a carpenter.

On your job right now you have the excavator guy outside with his machinery building all sorts of things.  And, one of those tasks is to dig a trench for the underground power so that the electrician can have the power company energize the house.  While the excavator and the electrician are busy, down in the basement the plumber is busily connecting all kinds of pipes so that the mechanicals of the house all work. 

What comes next?

Now that the delivery is completed and of course all of the specialized trucks’ carriers are taken back to the plant; what happens next?

There it is, your home is siting on its permanent foundation and of course you are 100% emotionally prepared to move in.  But……………., not so fast.  There is a bunch of finish work that needs to be done.

Over the next couple days we will discuss the various aspects of what needs to happen so that your home is 100% finished.  For starters let’s look at what the excavator needs to do now that virtually all the big and heavy trucks are gone:

It's show time!

Finally, your big day has arrived, and it is now time for have the Set Crew and The Crane work their magic as they hoist your new home on its permanent foundation whereupon it will be your new home.  Today’s photograph shows our “Go-To” Crane guy Cole, a talented crane operator.  We hire only experienced set crews and crane operators.  We want your new home to be a source of happiness for years to come!
