Some Basic Information About Furnaces

Today’s furnaces have two separate air flow systems to create heat within the rooms of a building. They often employ gas burners fueled by either natural gas or propane to generate heat.

Some Common Parts of Furnaces:

  • Draft Inducer Fan Motor: This motor draws air into the burner assembly which in turn warms the heat exchanger within the furnace. This air is then released to the outside of the home because this air contains harmful toxins such as carbon monoxide.
  • Blower Fan: This draws air through the return vent, blows it past the heat exchanger, which then heats it. This air then gets pushed through air ducts in the home and through floor or ceiling vents which heat the various rooms of the building.
  • Thermostat: Sets the desired temperature within a room and communicates with the furnace to ensure consistent air quality control and temperature. This is usually powered by the batteries or the thermostat control board. It is best for the thermostat to be positioned in a central, cool place in the home away from direct sunlight for optimal efficiency. The flow of heating is now in full effect, as the heat in the room circulates through the return vent and back into the furnace. When the thermostat’s thermometer senses that the room is heated to the desired temperature, it sends a message to the furnace to turn off. When the room’s temperature falls below the desired degree, the thermostat sends a message to the furnace to turn back on. This continues throughout the day.
  • Filter: The furnace filter ensures proper air circulation and quality. It is important for the furnace filter to be checked monthly for optimal efficiency.
