How Does Cabin Heating Work on Aircraft?

Posted on September 28, 2022 John Symond

As an airplane climbs in the sky, up to altitudes that rival Mount Everest, the temperature drops to levels much lower than that of the ground. Consequently, when a commercial aircraft begins to ascend, its heating system will typically engage, and it will expel warm air out the vents to heat the cabin to a comfortable temperature. Though some planes use electric heating systems, most rely on a combustion heater which uses the same fuel as an airplane's engines. If you are curious about how each of these systems function, read on as we discuss how cabin heating works on aircraft.
