What is a Gas Furnace and How Does It Work?
A furnace is an integral part of your heating system. Furnaces can be fueled by natural gas. A gas furnace’s main components are burners and heat exchangers, blowers and controls. The best gas furnaces can operate at over 95% efficiency, which means that 95% of the fuel you pay for is actually converted into heat.
A gas furnace (that feeds your forced-air heating system) turns on when your indoor air temperature drops below your programmed setting on your thermostat. In Trane furnaces, a silicone nitride igniter lights a burner inside the combustion chamber. The heat is then pushed into the heat exchanger and the air is heated.
The heat exchanger technology (used to extract heat from the combustion process) brings a few more considerations that your Mountain Air Cooling & Heating Technician can troubleshoot.
If you experience any of these problems with your furnace, make sure you call us immediately:
● Ignition problems
● Air vent obstructions
● Exhaust gases not exiting the flue (CO2 leakage)
● Faulty pressure switch
● Thermostat not responding
● Blown fuses
● Gas furnace does not produce enough heat
