Furnace Repair

How does a furnace system work?

A heating system that utilizes a furnace is called a forced-air system. This type of system uses a thermostat to tell the furnace to turn 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, which 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 furnace repairs important?

The short answer is that you want your property to stay warm when it's cold outside. Properly addressing central heating and furnace repairs is very important in keeping your energy bills low, ensuring that your problem doesn't grow into a more expensive issue, efficiently heating the entire property evenly, and reducing noise pollution in your home.
