Mystery Solved: Air Handler vs Furnace (Residential)

The video above, by Genteq Motors, gives a very good overview of how your average residential furnace works. For those of us, however, who has no life and would like to know more we will go into a little more detail in this article covering the history of heating homes to the difference between gas and electric.

Air Handler / Furnace
When you have electric heat it is called an air handler. When you have a gas heater itโ€™s called a furnace. Up north you may have an oil burner, but that is also called a furnace. What they all have in common is a fan that circulates air in the house.

It finally happened – Hell has frozen!

Laponica Refrigeration - Hell, Norway

By: Ole Andreas Haug

That is – Hell the city in Norway has frozen. According to my brother, who has been to Hell and back, visitors can take a train ride to “Hell” and, in plain good old English, be greeted by a sign that says, “Welcome to Hell.” In Norwegian we spell the religious underworld location as “Helvete”, so naming a city “Hell” was perfectly fine until English speaking visitors began to come. Then it became funny.

As Norwegian immigrants to the United States Laponica Refrigeration brings extensive knowledge on making things as cold as possible, circumstantially evident by our slogan: “We work in the heat, so you don’t have to!”

If you live in the Greater New Orleans area we recommend you visit our newly designed web page, request service, or browse our extensive list of photos on our blog About Laponica Refrigeration.

From unloading the truck on Monday ’til putting up the box Friday took us 5 days. All we have to do now is wait for them lift our units up on the roof and making us a platform, run the lines and we’re done. Special thanks to Patrick & his dad for the awesome and speedy work done on this job. There might be a fruit basket or something coming ๐Ÿ™‚
