Gas Furnaces are efficient and effective. We would like to provide you with some information to help in the decision making process of your heating system. Trane Furnaces are reliable, efficient heat when you need it. They are the choice for the majority of modern homes with central heating and air conditioning.
A gas furnace is the heating component in a majority of systems in colder weather climates. It converts gas to heat. The main components to a furnace include burners and heat exchanger, blower and controls. Trane gas furnaces are built to perform again and again, year after year. Beyond performance, we also provide options for energy-efficient operation.
In fact, some of our furnaces operate at over 95% efficiency, which means that 95% of the fuel you pay for is actually converted into heat for your home.
A gas furnace, or forced-air heating system, reacts when the room air temperature drops below your programmed setting on the thermostat. The silicone nitride igniter lights a burner inside the combustion chamber. The heat created is then pushed into the heat exchanger, where the air is then heated. This newly heated air moves through the ductwork and into the rooms of the house. The combustion gases used to create the heat are vented through a flue in the roof or wall.
