- The Pilots
The pilot on the furnace must be in working condition at
all times. also, the pilot must be new so that it will light itself when it goes out. The oldest furnaces must be lit again every time the pilot light goes out, but there are many times when the homeowner is not home. The newest pilot lights will light themselves again to make sure that the gas does not leak into the house.
- The Burners
The burners that are located in the furnace must burn at the right temperature at all times. The air that comes out of the furnace is heated by these combustion burners. The burners will heat the air before the fan pushes the air into the ducts. When the combustion burner is working properly, the air in the house will always match the temperature that is listed on the thermostat.
- Repairing The Unit
The units that are in disrepair must be repaired as soon as possible. The repairs on a furnace help the furnace to remain safe to operate, and the repairs that are completed can be done without endangering the family. The cold air in the house will only last for a few hours while the repairs are being completed.
- Accessing The Unit
Removing the casing from the unit is the most important part of the repair job. People must get to the inner workings of the furnace so they can complete the repairs. Removing the casing, replacing the pilot switch and combustion burner is the best order of service for a working furnace.
Homeowners who are able to take care of their own furnaces will be able to save money on their repairs, save money on the labor for service appointments and save the time that it takes to have the repairs done.
Our Daily Green would like to thank today's sponsor for helping us learn how to repair things around the home. It's always better to repair when possible instead of replace.
