    A disadvantage of a central forced air electric furnance is?

    there is no zone control for individual rooms

    Three common controls used in central electric heat applications are thermostats, contactors (or relays), and ?


    The low voltage thermostat is used for central electric heat because it is compact, it is responsive and it is?
