Warm Air Furnace
Your warm air furnace provides heated air to your living space through gravity or, more commonly, a series of ducts or blowers. Residential furnaces can be powered by propane, natural gas or fuel oil.
A well-tuned furnace is essential to keeping your family warm, as well as maximizing your energy dollars. A dirty, inefficient furnace is likely wasting energy and costing more than you need to pay for heat. The heat exchanger in your furnace is one of the most critical elements. A rusted or cracked heat exchanger can cause dangerous combustion gasses, like carbon monoxide, to back up in your home. Venting is also important, to make sure those same gases are channeled outside your house. The home inspector will also check any adjunct systems, such as a whole-house humidifying system.
