You set the thermostat and the heat comes on, but how much do you really know about the inner workings of your trusty home furnace? Take a look at the interactive infographic below for a primer on some of the major pieces and parts in the anatomy of the residential HVAC system (parts may vary depending on whether your unit uses gas, electricity or oil).
The best way to keep all of your furnace parts functioning at optimal capacity is to schedule a seasonal inspection and tune-up every year with a professional HVAC company. Preventive maintenance goes a long way toward discovering potential issues and addressing small repairs before they turn into bigger, and much more expensive, problems down the road.
