This fall St. Augustine needed to replace its furnace. It did so with an array of five small furnaces installed by DeYoung Plumbing and Heating. One of the advantages of that arrangement is that each of the furnaces heats a particular section of the building so it is easier to heat only one part of the building. The new furnaces do not send the exhaust up the chimney, but through the wall. If I understand the technology correctly, the outgoing gasses heat the incoming air, improving efficiency. If you hold your hand in the exhaust flow, it is warm but not hot.
