How Do Furnaces Work?
Furnaces are made up of several components: a heat exchanger, blower, burner, vent pipe, ductwork, and a plenum. Your furnace will detect the temperature and activate when the temperature starts to drop below your desires. Once activated, the burner turns on which drives gas to the heat exchanger.
Then, the heat exchanger turns the gas and air into heat and this heat travels through ducts. When the fuel combines with air and ignites in a process called combustion, this creates heat. This heat is then circulated into the distribution system where the blower is located.
After this process, outside air enters through a vent. Once this air combines with heat, the heated air is distributed and filtered throughout your home into your vents. This is how your furnace supplies your home with heat.
Signs Your Furnace Needs to Be Replaced
When it’s time for a furnace upgrade, your current furnace will certainly let you know! There are many signs to watch out for when it comes to a malfunctioning furnace that’s lived out its usefulness. Some of these signs include:
- Old Age: Most furnaces have an expected life expectancy between 15 and 20 years. If your furnace is approaching its 20th year, it’s a good time to begin looking for its replacement.
- Constant Repairs: One telltale sign of a furnace at the end of its wits is the need for frequent repairs. If you find yourself needing a repair service every other month, this could indicate that it’s time for a replacement.
- Inadequate Heat: If your furnace is no longer fulfilling your heating needs, it’s time for an upgrade. Sometimes, we outgrow our furnaces whether we add on to our homes or grow our families. You need a heating system that can supply your home with adequate heat.
- Increase of Utility Bills: Compare your utility bills from month to month. If you notice a steady increase, this could indicate that your furnace is consuming more and energy to operate. This tends to happen as our furnaces grow older and therefore weaker.
