    Gentlemen, Are the terms 'forced hot air heat" and "forced warm air heat" used interchangeably? I never heard of forced warm air until recently and was wondering if there are any technical differences. Thanks

    A thought occurs to me Nick. When tradesmen volunteer their time to share their professional opinions to a complete stranger the beneficiary should acknowledge it. At least that's what a "gentleman" would do. We're not paid to answer these questions.

    my apologies

    Point well taken, I was slow with a reply to the previous post and hope I did not offend anyone. You guys are the pros and provide a great service here.

    There's no difference between the terms that I know of. Call it local dialect if you will. I suppose you could say that since really old furnaces put out a much hotter air than new, that old furnaces were forced hot air and new ones are forced warm air. But that's stretching it a bit I think.
