How Does a Gas Furnace Work?
A gas furnace can be an excellent, energy efficient way to heat your home. Gas furnaces create heat by burning fuel. As the fuel burns it creates hot gases that go into the heat exchanger. As air passes over the heat exchanger, it absorbs the heat from the hot metal surface. The heated air is then pushed through your ducts to warm your home. The gases, or combustible air, that are generated during this process are released outside through a vent pipe in your home.
The Importance of a Gas Furnace Inspection
It is very important to have your gas furnace inspected every year BEFORE using it. The normal wear and tear from use can cause cracks or holes. Operating a damaged furnace can release an odorless gas called carbon monoxide into your home, which can be deadly. Because it is virtually impossible to know if a furnace is leaking until it’s too late, it is best to have your furnace inspected every year by a professional.
