Gas Furnace Acting Up?

What is a Gas Furnace and How Does it Work?
A gas furnace works by burning natural gas within the chamber of the furnace element. The flame creates heat and a blower then moves the heat into the ductwork of the home. Gases produced from the burning fuel are vented away from the home via a flue.
What are the Benefits of Choosing a Gas Furnace?
There are a number of benefits of a gas furnace. Probably the most important benefit is that a gas furnace is very durable and seldom breaks. If you maintain the system carefully, you can expect years of great service from your furnace. Natural gas is also very affordable in most areas, so you may save money by choosing this type of furnace over other options.
A Few Considerations Regarding the Gas Furnace
You will want to keep your furnace well maintained to assure that it operates safely and is less likely to break. It is also important that any home that operates a gas furnace has a carbon monoxide detector in place so that your family doesn’t run the risk of living in a home with a leak.
