How Does Furnace Work?
Simply put, furnaces are central air systems typically powered by gas that will heat the air in one area of your house and then redirect it in every other room through vents and the ductwork.
When you turn on your thermostat, you essentially send a signal to the gas valve to open and release gas into the burner component. Its flames will then heat up a metal heat exchanger sending the heat all throughout the coiled tubes in the heat exchanger and then into the air. While the heat moves within the heat exchanger, the fan and the blower motor will move through the ductwork through all the rooms of your house.

People love SuperTech HVAC
We have always been very satisfied with Supertech hvac, thanks to Kenny's thorough diagnostics. Recently he fixed our hvac when no one else could... He listens to our concerns and always goes the extra mile to make sure we are aware of the situation and happy with the solution. Couldn’t be happier with his work!
SuperTech was absolutely the best company I have ever used from scheduling a same day appointment to having a wonderful friendly helpful technician fix the problem with our air conditioning system. I would recommend this company for everyone. Outstanding customer service and very reasonable prices for a great wonderful company.
Their professionalism and responsiveness are experienced across the company, from the receptionist to the technician who goes to the home to problem solve the challenge. It is a pleasure to encounter such impeccable level of customer care.

Signs That You Need A Heating Repair Team
Check these three easy things. Let's check to see if the circuit breaker isn't tripped. Secondly, check to see if your air filter needs to be replaced if it appears dirty. Last but not least, check your thermostat. Has the battery been changed recently? Do you have the heat set and it's on?
Step 1. To begin with, let's look at the thermostat. Do you have it set to on? Have you set the thermostat to the heating setting?
Step 2. Still not working? Check out the furnace switch. What is the state of this switch? Is it on?
Step 3. It would be a good idea to check the circuit breakers for your furnace next. Check to see if it was accidentally tripped.
Step 4. When the furnace filter becomes clogged, you'll have a problem. Check your furnace filter to make sure it’s okay. It might be time to put a new one in if the old one is dirty or clogged.
Step 5. Check the front panel of the furnace as well. You need to close this tightly.
Step 6. What about the gas valve? Is it turned on? Have you double checked?
Step 7. Among other places to check are the air ducts. Do they seem to be blocked?
Step 8. In the event you still have problems with your furnace, it's time to get a professional involved.
This is one of the easiest ways for you to tell that something’s wrong and you need a heating repair. Normally, the system should cycle on and off. Should that be your case as well, there might be something wrong with the thermostat or the blower in the furnace. But it all depends on what kind of system you have. A specialist will be able to determine the issue and fix it for you.
Again, easy to spot, pun intended. Unless you have zone heating and you specifically set the temperature to different degrees in separate rooms or areas of your house or building, it should be the same temperature all over. If that doesn’t happen and you start noticing that certain spots are rather colder than they should be, call in the team!
This usually happens if your heater is a furnace. Evidently, a burning smell is extremely unsettling so you need to act as quickly as possible. But not if this is the first time you’re turning on the furnace this season. It has just been gathering dust and debris through the summer which is now burning off as the furnace lights up for the first time.
However, if you feel it in the middle of the cold season, it’s a cause for concern. Your air filters might be clogged. If that happens, then the dirt is now settling on some of the other components of the system and is burning off.
