Patterns of air distribution vary with the positions of supply diffusers. A diffuser that discharges through the floor in an upward direction or downward through the ceiling provides a vertical distribution of air. On the other hand, a diffuser that discharges through a wall provides a horizontal distribution of air. The spread for either the horizontal or the vertical pattern depends on the setting of the diffuser vanes. A low horizontal discharge provides the most effective distribution Airdistribution that results from different diffuser locations is shown in figure 4-19.
As previously mentioned, warm-air heating systems are generally identified as either the GRAVITY TYPE or the FORCED-AIR TYPE. The type of duct distribution used further identifies these installations. There are two
