Anatomy of a Gas Furnace
A gas furnace operates by combusting natural gas in order to generate heat. A natural gas line runs into the home from the municipal gas main, terminating in the burner assembly of the furnace. When the furnace turns on, it ignites the flow of natural gas from the gas line and causes the burner assembly jets to fire. As long as the flow of gas continues, the jets will keep burning and generating heat. The heat travels through a heat exchanger in the furnace, allowing the air flow on the other side to be heated while safely venting combustion byproducts like carbon monoxide. The warm air is then circulated throughout the house.
The Benefits of Using a Gas Furnace
There are many benefits to using a gas furnace in your home. For one thing, natural gas generates quite a bit of heat relative to the amount that is burned. This makes gas furnaces very energy efficient when compared to other heating systems. For another, natural gas is widely available across the country. Part of the reason that gas furnaces gained such a prominent place in the heating market was because of their versatility. You do need to have a gas line installed in your home in order to use a gas furnace, but you can have one installed if you don’t already have one. In fact, we offer oil to gas conversions for those who have oil furnaces and would like to upgrade to a natural gas system. Give us a call if you’d like to know more about the advantages of using a gas furnace.
