How Does A Furnace Work?

Several systems can be used to heat a home or a building — heat pumps, boilers and ductless mini-splits are a few of the common systems. The majority of homes in the United States use a gas furnace system in conjunction with a split-unit AC for cooling.

Having heating repairs done can be intimidating, especially if you know nothing about heaters. Here is a brief run-down on how your average gas furnace functions to ease this burden.

  1. When heat is needed, a small fan called a draft inducer, pulls fresh air into the area where the burners are so they have sufficient oxygen to ignite.
  2. Once there is enough airflow in the unit, the gas burner will be lit with an igniter.
  3. Using a blower motor, your furnace draws in cold air through its filter.
  4. The air is then passed over a heat exchanger, which is heated by the gas burners. (The heat exchanger is the equivalent of your air conditioner’s condenser coils.)
  5. Exhaust from the gas burner is released through an exit called a “flue vent”.
  6. As the air passes over the exchanger, it’s heated and distributed throughout by the blower motor.

There are variants of the standard gas furnace that make the system more complicated such as condenser furnaces which use a dual heat exchanger to condense water vapor to increase heating efficiency. All of these options aside, all gas furnaces operate using these general principles.

With this increased understanding of how your heater works. We hope our clients can become more confident in their decisions regarding their HVAC solutions. Having major home repairs can feel less daunting when you have a better understanding of what exactly is being repaired.

Common Furnace Repairs

Any heater repair could have you asking, “Why is the heat not turning on?” Ask anyone who has ever jumped in an icy river; few things in life create more urgency than being cold! While many things can go wrong to cause your heater to stop blowing warm air, there are several components on a furnace that tend to be serviced or repaired more often than others. Here’s a list of some of the most common things we fix on a heating system:

  • Broken thermostats
  • Broken blower motors, or old/frayed belts on said motors
  • Dirty filters
  • Ignighter/ pilot light issues
  • Electrical/wiring issues
  • Excessive cycling (turning on and off)

Most of the common furnace issues are fairly simple fixes and with the help of our skilled technicians, can be fixed before you know it. If you feel like your furnace is having any of these issues, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment today!
