Your furnace is very important in the frigid winter months. They keep you warm by using air, steam, or hot water to heat your home. The most common fuel source in the United States is natural gas, but other common sources are oil, electric, coal or wood. A burner ignites the fuel and central air furnaces then heat your home by using a fan to spread the warm air through ducts and ventilation systems. The three most important parts of a typical furnace are the burner which uses a flame to combust fuel in order to generate heat. It is important to have your burner regularly cleaned in order to maintain efficiency. The blower uses a fan to draw air through vents and into your home. Finally, there are the thermostat and safety devices such as the flame sensor, gas valve, pilot, ignition control, and blower control board. These safety sensors frequently need to be checked up on and even replaced. They are the number one cause of a furnace not starting or working properly. They also keep your family and home safe by preventing a deadly fire! The thermostat is the part of your furnace system you most often interact with. It allows you to save on energy bills by controlling the heating and air conditioning of your home. Many programmable thermostats are so efficient that they help you reduce on costs by logically optimizing the use of resources to heat and cool your home.
