I have what i think is a typical Gas Furnace and Central A/C unit coupled together on the same venting system.
My loose understanding is that there’s a Fan/Blower that pushes air around that’s shared by both
A condenser inside and a compressor outside that function as the A/C
A electrical ignition system that turns on the Furnace
and maybe a Draft Inducer (not totally sure what this does)
So, firstly, what am i missing from my understanding of electrical components making up this system?
Secondly, there are 2 devices so far that have been discovered associated to HEAT
- Seems to come on first and run for an initial period of heating
- Seems to come on after #1 and run for an extended period (the entire heating duration).
I’ve suspected #1 is the draft inducer and #2 is the blower motor, but would like to correct that understanding if mistaken.
