Heating systems often operate off natural gas or another oil. The furnace is run off of this fuel and an internal combustion produces the hot air. The air is spread throughout the home or office with a blowing mechanism and comes out through vents in the floor, ceiling or walls. In other cases a steam radiator heats the home, but this is much less common.

An air conditioning system works quite differently. There is normally a motor attached to a compressor. The compressor is able to turn chemicals, like Freon, into cool gas. A large fan that is attached to the compressor sucks in warm air which is cooled by this gas. Then the fan distributes the air throughout duct work into the home or office. Air is normally filtered before it goes through this system, making it cleaner as well as colder.
