Race City Heating & Air - Furnaces

 Furnaces heat and circulate warm air in the winter. A furnaces heating ability is measured with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) percentage. A higher AFUE percentage indicates a more efficient furnace.

The basic components of a furnace system are:

 

Burner - Fuel, natural gas, propane, or oil is delivered to the burner.

 

Heat exchanger - Transfers the heat, produced by the burner, to the air distribution system.

 

Ductwork - Carries the heated air throughout the home.

 

Vent pipe or Flue - Exhausts the byproducts of combustion, such as water vapor and carbon dioxide, to the outside.

 

Controls & safety devices - including the thermostat(s) and other devices that prevent dangerous situations within your furnace. Some of these devices include gas valves, ignition controls, ignitors, flame sensors, transformers, limit control devices, blower control boards, and flame roll out switches.
