Furnace Installation

How does a furnace work?

A forced-air heating system utilizes a thermostat to tell the furnace to kick on and begin heating a property when the interior temperature drops below a pre-selected level. When this happens, a valve in the furnace opens, which releases natural gas into the burner and tells the blower to begin running. The gas is then ignited by the pilot light or electric igniter within the combustion chamber. This creates heat in the exchanger and is then blown through the duct work and released into the living space. This process also creates combustion gases that are funneled through a flue and vented to the outside.

Why are furnaces important?

The obvious answer to why furnaces are important is that they are responsible for heating your property.  Having a properly sized and running furnace is also extremely important in keeping your energy bills low, efficiently heating the entire property evenly, and reducing noise pollution in your home.
