What is a Furnace?
A traditional home comfort system has two parts: an outdoor unit, such as an air conditioner or heat pump, and an indoor unit. The furnace is the indoor unit that heats and circulates warm air through your home in the winter, and in the summer, it takes the cool air from the outdoor unit and works as a fan to circulate it throughout your home. The indoor and outdoor units are designed to work together. And when the furnace is properly matched with a heat pump or air conditioner, the result is maximum efficiency and extended system life. Furnace heating ability is measured with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). The AFUE calculates the amount of fuel converted to heat in proportion to the amount of fuel entering the furnace. This is commonly expressed as a percentage. A higher AFUE percentage indicates a more efficient furnace. Think of it in the terms of dollars, if you have an 80% AFUE furnace, 80 cents of every dollar is used to heat your home, 20 cents goes up the chimney; if you had a 97% AFUE furnace, 97 cents of every dollar heats your home, only 3 cents goes up the chimney. A gas furnace uses natural gas, although some models can be converted to utilize propane. An electricity source is required to run the control systems, blower and some accessories. There are a wide variety of gas furnaces in different sizes and efficiencies.
