What are the Parts of a Heater System?

Unless you are a professional yourself, you may only have the most basic understanding of how a home heating system operates. It’s always a good idea to have some knowledge of the different parts of a home heating system, noting whether you have a gas furnace or an electric heating system and the many different parts that make up those systems.

  • Circuit Control Board – This is essentially the “brain” of your heating system, controlling the power supply to the entire unit.
  • ECM Motor – This motor maintains proper airflow through your heating system.
  • Hard Start Kit – This works with your compressor to boost its performance.
  • Heat Exchanger – This part serves the simple purpose of moving heated air from one place to another, but also ensures that heated air is safe to breathe.
  • Heater Capacitor – This part stores power and gives the blower the extra push it needs to start working.
  • HVAC Hot Surface Ignitor – Taking the place of the pilot light in newer models of furnace, this part passes a current to the gas valve to open it up for gas flow.
  • HVAC Inducer Motor – This part clears out dangerous gases left over from previous cycles, making the heater safe to operate.
  • HVAC Pressure Switch – Another safety feature, this part shuts down your heater if it senses any negative pressure while also offering protection from leaks.
  • HVAC Relay – This controls your unit, allowing you to remotely turn it on and off.

Of course, these are only some of the parts that make up your system. There are many more, and the parts in your heating system will vary depending on factors including the type of heating system you have and the age of the unit. This is one of the many reasons you should hire a professional who has the experience to identify any issues and take care of any problems, regardless of the part that needs to be repaired or replaced.

Identifying Damaged and Broken Parts

Even if you’re not a professional yourself, you can still save yourself a lot of problems by being able to identify problems with the parts in your heating system. Of course, that can be a major undertaking. Fortunately, there are a few things you can watch out for that can tell you one or more of the parts in your heating system are in need of repair or replacement.

Perhaps one of the biggest signs there is an issue is that your heating system is not working as efficiently as it usually does. If it is taking longer than usual for the air in your heating system to warm up, or if it is not getting as warm as it usually does, then it might be time to call for professional help. Another good indicator is that your energy bill has suddenly gotten much higher than usual, even with the added cost of running your heating system.

It is always worth having a professional come and check your heating system if you notice any unusual sounds coming from your heating system. Unusual odors can also be an indicator of problems. It should also go without saying that you should immediately turn off your heating system and call for help if your carbon monoxide detector has begun beeping as this could be a sign of a major problem.
