Furnace Repairs for Ignitors
Inside most furnaces, the ignitor is responsible for starting the live flame. Without it, heating cannot happen. Like a handheld lighter, the igniter is connected to a gas source. Once lit, it creates a flame for the burner, which then transfers to the heat exchanger. There, the flame is kept for the duration of the heating process.
Ignitors can spoil for different reasons. Your furnace may have just had a run of bad luck with a poorly manufactured ignitor. In more common cases, ignitors need replacement and repair because of buildup.
The ignitor is crucial to the heating process. Without a functional ignitor, homeowners will not be able to heat their home. Forcing heat is also dangerous.
Refrain from using the furnace under such circumstances. Heating furnace repairs for ignitors are more than common, and can be accomplished in one visit.
