The Different Components of Your Heating System

RTM Design • Jun 9, 2022

All it takes for your heating system to act up is one faulty component. That’s why it’s crucial to take a holistic approach when it comes to maintenance. You need to take care of all of its components–especially when things get cold in your locale.

As the first step to proper heating maintenance is knowing and understanding the different components of your system, we will now take a look at the parts that make it up. Should any one of them develop issues, don’t hesitate to reach out to Trust 1 Services, the leading name for quality heating installation in Quincy, MA.

The Thermostat

This is responsible for measuring both the temperature and the humidity inside your home. It will activate your heating system when the temperature drops below a certain point. When the temperature rises above another set point, it will activate your air conditioning system. Some thermostats also come with timers so that you can set them to automatically turn on or off at specific times of the day.

Air Circulation System

Responsible for circulating the air in your home, this system helps maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the space. The air intake and return vents are typically mounted on the side of your house or in your attic and are connected to the furnace by a series of pipes, ducts and flexible hoses. When air is sucked in through the intake vents, it’s heated by the furnace and is blown out of the return vents for better heating. Be sure to have this checked during heating maintenance.


The compressor usually sits in a separate room and provides the mechanical power needed to heat air as it passes through it. It also helps maintain a steady low temperature inside your home by pumping cold air back into the furnace or heating unit or turning on/off certain ducts within your system as needed and is one of the main components checked during heating repairs.

Your heating system is made up of different components with varying functions–all working toward the same goal. To ensure that you stay warm and cozy indoors all year long, make sure to keep all components in good working order. For quality heating services, turn to Trust 1 Services.
