Do you have Furnace Problems? Do You How a Furnace Works? Is It Time to Upgrade and Lower Gas Bills?
Ft Worth area furnaces are usually fueled by electricity, propane, and natural gas. The most common furnaces use natural gas because it is inexpensive, commonly available, and clean burning. A gas forced-air heating unit starts to work when the temperature drops below a certain degrees on the thermostat. The pilot light fires up a burner located inside the combustion chamber. This action creates heat that is transferred to the heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is a metal chamber in which air flows in and then it is heated. The heated air then moves into a hot air plenum, and next it moves through ducts delivering hot-warm air throughout your Ft Worth, TX residence.
Check Your Furnace Filter
If you know sure that a whole month has gone by without you checking your Ft Worth furnace filter, then it is probably time to clean or replace the filter. You have to keep in mind that a clean filter maximizes your furnace’s performance and efficiency. Maintaining your furnace filter can also add longevity to your furnace and also decreases energy costs.
If a member of your immediate family suffers from allergies, you might want to consider purchasing a allergenic reduction filter and a ultraviolet air purifier. Before you open the front panel to change or clean your furnace filter always makes sure you have powered down your furnace for safety reasons. Never operate the furnace until a clean or new filter has been installed. See http://www.cortisyn.com/.
