How Does a Gas Furnace Burner Work?

Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning of Las Vegas, Nevada help commercial and residential customers better understand their units in an effort to pinpoint any potential troubles. Furnace burners are an important part to any furnace. Burned in order to create heat, the burner is a component of a furnace where air mixes with fuel. Across the network of pipes or ductwork, the heat is then distributed throughout the home via pipes or ductwork. In addition, the furnace burner may also include a pre-mixer. Just before the burner, the area can be inhabited by the pre-mixer where the air and fuel are mixed before they enter the burner. This additive contributes to the enhanced combustion to produce efficient heating from the furnace. The furnace burner operates by a fuel source; oil, gas, and in some cases propane. Furnaces that have two (or more) are known as a dual burner and most furnaces have a single burner.

Gas Furnace Burner Sequence of Operation

The furnace burner operates by burning the air and fuel mixture it takes in order to create heat, after which it is distributed across the home. The following steps below are the basics on how this takes place.
1) Initiating the heating cycle, it starts when the thermostat is set for heating and the designated temperature; calling for heat.
2) Delivering fuel to the burners as the fuel valve opens at this point allowing the air intake to bring in air from the exterior of the home that mixes with the fuel.
3) At the burners, the pilot light engages in order to light this air and fuel mixture.
4) The heat is transferred to the air within the ductwork because the heated air is then blown over the heat exchanger.
5) The blower fan distributes warmed air throughout the home.
