Gases like propane or natural gas are used in gas furnaces. The burners light these gases, which then move through the heat exchanger. The furnace fan blows your home’s air across the heat exchanger to warm it. The warm air is then blown into your home’s duct system for distribution.

Furnace and Gas Terms for Heating Systems
- Recognizing 80%, 90%, and 95% Efficiency Units: Gases must be vented conventionally onto the chimney stack in a system that is 80% efficient because they are hot enough. Similar to a clothes dryer, a 90%–95% efficient system has much cooler gasses that vent to the outside through an exhaust vent.
- Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) Your furnace’s AFUE, expressed as a percentage will reveal how much energy is converted to heat. An AFUE of 90, for instance, indicates that 90% of the fuel is utilized to heat your home, with the remaining 10% exhausting as combustion gasses.
- Combustion Air: Combustion air is necessary for a proper gas burn, allowing your heating system to operate at its fullest potential.
- Heat Exchanger: The area in a furnace where fossil fuel is burned, and heat is transferred to adjacent air is called the heat exchanger. The heat exchanger will expand and contract due to an improperly sized heater, which will cause early aging and cracking.
- Venting Types: Your new gas heater will use a direct vent system or an existing chimney to vent the explosive gasses. The chimney will typically need to be relined to produce the proper draft.
- Single-Stage Gas Valve: Single Stage Gas Valves function according to the fundamental on/off principle. Your heating system operates at full capacity each time your thermostat requests heat.
- Two-Stage Gas Valves: Two-Stage Gas Valves have two operational levels—a low stage and a high stage—and can operate in either one. The ideal humidity levels and quieter operation of properly sized equipment will increase energy economy and comfort by operating 60–70% of the time in the low stage. Getting two heaters in one is similar to that.
- Standard Blower: A standard blower produces a specific amount of airflow depending on the tap setting.
- Variable-Speed Blower: Depending on the desired result, this high-efficiency blower may offer changing airflow. These blowers improve the efficiency of air filtration, humidification, dehumidification, and flow balance.
