How Does A Propane Furnace Work?


A propane furnace needs a pilot light to work. When the pilot light is lit the flame ignites the propane fuel to the burner. The thermocouple is an electronic device that senses the flame from the pilot light. It keeps the main gas valve open allowing propane to flow constantly to the pilot so it can ignite the burners. The furnace functions by heating air that it takes in and returning it to the outside by sending it through the heating ducts.
