How Does a Furnace Work?
The precise manner in which your furnace works depends upon the type of fuel used. In gas furnaces, natural gas is combusted in a chamber. Air is heated, and it is then distributed through the house via a system of air ducts. Electric furnaces work in much the same manner, but use electrical resistance heating in order to warm the air for distribution. This heating cycle is simply repeated until the desired temperature is attained in your home.
