Switching to a natural gas furnace I purchased two years ago is the best decision I ever made.
Natural gas not only saves energy and money but I feel it is also an affordable, clean, safe, and efficient energy choice.
It costs less compared to electricity by up to 30 percent. This reduced my water heating and new home heating costs very significantly. A gas furnace comes with individual components that work together to achieve your desired home heating needs. In essence, it is a complete Heating and Air Conditioning system all in one, at optimal functioning when each component works typically. The main area of a working gas furnace is the heat exchanger. These are long metal tubes with S-shape… Gas sparks easily combust inside these tubes and release toxic gases out through the roof. The whole Heating and Air Conditioning equipment’s blower motor compels air past the tubes to easily separate toxic sparks from the clean air blown into your home. The igniter and pilot light definitely are vital for the gas furnace as they light and turn on the flame. While older gas heating systems often use pilot light that always burns to light the gas, current gas heating systems use these new overheated surface igniters (HSI) that glow red overheated to ignite the gas. When burnt gas releases toxic fumes, the fumes are vented out through a small vacuum, created by a controlled draft inducer motor, to the vent pipe. A blower motor blows air into the family home through vents by drawing in air from the return air filter, forces it straight past the heat exchanger, and blows it out the vents.
