A furnace is the device in your home used for high-temperature heating. The name furnace is derived from the Greek word “fornax”, which means oven. At Express Pros we can repair and maintain any “fornax” you can think of!

To understand how your furnace works, it’s good to have a general understanding of the basic components and how they work together. Furnaces consist of:
- Burners that deliver and burn the fuel (typically gas or oil)
- Heat exchangers
- A Blower
- A Flue that vents gases
How Does A Furnace Work?
Fuel and air mix in your furnace and the resulting mixture is ignited by the burners. The flame warms the heat exchanger, (a series of metal tubes that retain heat). Air is then blown across the tubes through the ducts of your home.
Furnaces are a major part of your home’s system and should be maintained by a professional Arvada Express Pro technician regularly.
High-Efficiency, Or Condensing Furnaces
High-efficiency furnaces can achieve an amazing 89% to 98% fuel efficiency. High-efficiency furnaces have sealed combustion areas, combustion draft inducers and secondary heat exchangers. This might seem a little overwhelming, but the bottom line is that the heat exchanger removes most of the heat from the exhaust gas, therefore delivering a 25% to 35% fuel savings over a 60% AFUE (Annualized Fuel Utilization Efficiency) furnace.
The heat exchanger technology (used to extract heat from the combustion process) also brings a few more considerations that your Express Pro engineer has to take into account.
If you experience any of these problems with your furnace, make sure you call us immediately:
- Weak flame or lighting issues
- Intake air vent obstruction
- Exhaust gases not exiting the flue
- Clogged drain
- Clogged flue vent
- Faulty pressure switch
- No heat
- Thermostat not responding
- Blown fuse
- Pilot light is out
- Gas furnace does not produce enough heat
The above list highlights just some of the problems that might arise with your furnace. It is vitally important to maintain a regular schedule of maintenance for your furnace as it deals with natural gas and could seriously damage your home if left unchecked. Furnaces also cost quite a lot of money to replace so a thorough repair job from Arvada Express Pros will keep your furnace running for many years.
