Mobile Home Furnace Operation

Furnaces are designed to be operated by people who know nothing about their mechanics. When you want heat you simply turn the thermostat up to a higher temperature. This sends a message to the furnace and the gas valve opens. Gas flows through an orifice into the combustion chamber of the furnace where the pilot light ignites it. The temperature in the combustion chamber increases and at a certain point it turns on the fan to distribute hot air into the home. The fan will take a little time to come on after you turn up the thermostat of course.

In the case of later manufactured homes the thermostat will  be digital and in older homes it is turned up by pushing a lever clockwise to the desired temperature. For safety reasons the thermostat operates on a 24 volt circuit from the furnace rather than on the standard 120 volts. After some time the home heats to the desired temperature and the thermostat closes the gas valve on the furnace. The gas used may be either natural gas or propane.These require different types of orifice. Installation of the wrong orifice is dangerous and this work should be done only by a professional repair person.

High Efficiency Furnaces--Heat Your Home Better And Save Money

Installing a high efficiency furnace in your home or in a mobile home can be fairly costly. The very large saving in cost of fuel offsets this rather quickly however and will pay for the furnace within just a few years. After that the savings remain right in your pocket. If you live in a cold climate the savings will be at their highest since you will use a lot less fuel. Even in quite moderate climates however the 30% fuel saving afforded by a high efficiency furnace will pay for the cost of installation in quite a short time. Modern high efficiency furnaces convert  90% to 97%  of the fuel they burn into usable heat in your home or mobile home.They use 30% less fuel than the older furnaces of a few years ago.

If you are now at the decison point in installing a newfurnace you can choose from mid efficiency models which turn 80% to 82% of fuel burnt, into heat, and high efficiency furnaces which have 90% to 97% efficiency ratings. Obviously the high efficiency furnace, although more costly to install, will give a much greater saving of money in the long run. A wise choice is the high efficiency furnace which is not only a money saver but also cuts down greatly on greenhouse gas emissions which cause climate change.
