Why cant you find your filter on your gas furnace?
Usually the filter is right on the inside of where the return air duct meets with the furnace. You usually have to take off the side or front panels of the furnace to gain access to where the filter is. Usually these involve sliding them up and out but it can vary. Check an online owners manual for the make and model of your furnace. Usually there will be a plate of information somewhere on the casing of the furnace with this information.

Answer . THE FILTER IS UNDER THE CAR IN FRONT OF THE GAS TANK YOU WILL NEED A SET OF LINE OR OPEN END WRENCHES FOR ONE SIDE AND A PLASTIC SLEEVE TOOL YOU CAN GET AT AUTOZONE FOR A COUPLE OF BUCKS FOR THE FITTING ON THE OTHER SIDE DONT BE AFRAID OF BREAKING THE PLASTIC COLLER ON THE OLD PART YOU W…ONT NEED IT WHEN YOUR DONE (MORE)
Answer . \nOn any car or engine, you can always start at the fuel injector or carbourator and follow the line leading to it backwards till you find any part of the fuel system your looking for, including modified ones.\n. \nThis should only take a few minutes and has the advantage of exposing a…ny other things (like pressure regulators, etc) also in the system that may have caused a problem.\n. \nUh...this also works from the gas tank and following it forward...or anywhere along the system you want to start!\n. \nTrue, if it's in the fuel tank, (generally more true for fuel pumps than filters), you'll end up, by elimination, isolating it to having to be there. Generally accessed by a removable panel somewhere on it, and frequently hidden under the rear seat. (MORE)
Answer . turn off power to furnace and remove the bottom door to the blower compartment,the filter should be on the right side of the blower housing or it may be directly below the blower housing on the bottom of the furnace depending on how your return duct is run. hope this helps,FYI filters s…/b replaced or cleaned every 30 days.

Answer . Gas furnaces are located in many places. The two most common places are basements and attics. Some are in crawl spaces or cellars. also located in garages. It depends mainly on the syle of home and the state codes as to where yours is located.
Changing your furnace filter is critical to maximizing the life ofyour furnace and central air conditioning system. Replacing pleatedfilters every three months is a good rule of thumb. Purchase enoughfilters for a year and mark your calendar. This will help maintainyour appliances. If you have pets …or smoke, you should considerbuying an upgraded quality of filter and, maybe, replace it moreoften. (MORE)
I was just checking around myself and looks like it can be anywhere from $3000-$4000 installed. Add $1K if you're going with a 90% high efficiency one which is recommended for harsh winters. 80% is fine for warmer climates.
At the bottem right hand side facing the furnace you will find a filter. This is one of the commen filters you can buy at Walmarts. The filter is a cardbord sheet with a filter on it. Pull out said filter look at the size printed on it.Go to Walmart and buy another. When you push in said filter be s…ure the air flow arrow on top edge is pointing toward the furnace. (MORE)
what is the sequence to a gas furnace ? . The sequence how a gas furnace works normally is : thermostat calls for heat, blower comes on for a few seconds and is shut off, gas valve opens and an igniter lites up and burners come on giving heat to the heat exchanger. When a certain temperature is rea…ched depending on the make of the furnace normally around 120f blower comes on. When temp. is satisfied the gas valve closes and burners go off. Blower stays on until the high limit cools off to around 80f. Next cycle will go again when the thermostat calls for heat. For any work on a gas furnace a qualified technician is recommended. (MORE)
a electrostatic filter simply presents the opposits charge to the air passing through and much the same as a magnet the charged particles are attracted and attached themselves to the opposite charged parts of the filter media.

Look under the hood toward the left side somewhat near and lower than the air cleaner.

Your 87 Camry 4cyl wont start it runs with starting fluid sprayed in it you just replaced the fuel filter it has gas in it it acts like the fuel inertia switch is open but you cant find the switch?
Make sure the fuel pump is functioning properly. A faulty fuel pump is far more common than the switch. If the fuel pump is receiving voltage but does not build pressure, you have a faulty fuel pump. Often a failing fuel pump will cause the fuel pump fuse to fail. People tend to want to blame the co…mputer or computer controls for problems when there is usually a more simple cause of the problem.

Oil furnaces cannot be converted to gas - LP or natural - as they have totally different burners and have very different internal construction.
A gas furnace works by heating up the element inside the furnace. The gas comes into the furnace and is lit by a spark that comes from the pilot light. The fire heats up the element and air from the fan pushes the heat into the house.
Average is around 15 years although some may last as much as 20years. Of course some last as little as 10 years. Usually the firstthings to fail are the parts associated with the blower. Anythingthat can wear out the motor quicker will shorten the life of thefurnace such as: high humidity, vibration…, inconsistent power,power surges, water leakage, very gritty air. (MORE)
I furnace was installed when the house was built in the 60's. The furnace has a wire basket, which I have to by the filter, cut to size and replace. My question can I use a regular air filtr for my furnace.
All of the big name brands offer similar quality, Trane,Carrier,York,Lennox,Rheem,Ruud,Whirlpool and some others. That said there are a couple brands in this list I would not own. But that`s just me. Dealers align themselves with a particular brand based on their experiences with them. Such as non p…roprietary controls and other parts, warranty issues, product line selection with respect to sizing & efficiency choices available and pricing of course. Your time would be most wisely spent shopping for a qualified and reputable dealer who has been around awhile and will stand behind his work.

The heat exchanger is the metal wall or tubing that is heated up when the burners are ignited. The inside of the heat exchanger allows the toxic flue gases produced from the burners to exhaust out through the furnace flue. The outside of the heat exchanger is where the cold air passes over, beco…mes warmed, and is blown throughout the ductwork of the home. The heat exchanger is the only wall separating the toxic flue gases from the supply air. If a crack develops in the heat exchanger, there is a potential for carbon monoxide gas to leak over to the supply side and be blown throughout your rooms. Carbon monoxide gas is odorless. The human senses will not detect its presence. . Ron Ferrara- DHR Mechanical Services, Inc. (MORE)
1. Determine "manifold pressure" from furnace rating plate (often 3.5" W.C.)2. Identify the manifold pressure plug. This is typically found on the outlet side of the gas valve; occasionally, it is a tap on the manifold itself. 3. With the furnace shut off, disconnect the pressure plug and install a …barbed tap in its place. Connect this to your manometer with flexible tubing. 4. If the furnace is "direct vent"--it has two vents, one to bring in combustion air from outdoor, and the second to convey products of combustion back out--then you will need to use a "differential manometer" and connect the second pressure tap to the burner box, probably by teeing in to the pressure hose connecting the burner box to the gas valve and the pressure switch. If you skip this step, you will not read the proper manifold pressure, since direct vent equipment sets manifold pressure not to atmosphere, but to the negative pressure inside the burner box. 5. Fire up the furnace and measure the manifold pressure. 6. If it is incorrect, adjust it on the gas valve. There usually is a large cap that can be removed with a slot screwdriver. Under it is the adjustment itself, usually a slot screw. This often adjusts clockwise to increase manifold pressure, but adjust and observe. 6. You may not exceed the rated manifold pressure, although you may under-rate it by up to 10%. 7. Replace the cap over the adjustment screw and confirm your pressure reading. 8. At the same time, I recommend reading the Hot Surface Ignitor current (if present): on most furnaces, this should be 2A or higher. 9. Also simultaneously check flame signal: this should be at least 2 microamps (uA). The HVAC Veteran (MORE)
Short answer: get a licensed Gas Fitter to do the job. Long answer: as a 34-year HVAC veteran service technician, here's how I would do it. 1. Confirm that the valve is definitely at fault by confirming that the gas is on, and that there is "the applied voltage" (typically 24 volts) to the valve…, and that the valve will not operate. A gas valve is usually rather expensive. 2. Shut off the gas and electricity to the furnace. 3. Identify all wires connected to the valve, either by drawing a diagram with each lead identified, or by taking photos. Then disconnect the wiring. 4. If there is pilot tubing attached to the valve, disconnect it. Be aware that it can be difficult to properly install pilot lines, and if you cross-thread the fitting, you will have to replace the entire gas valve, again. 5. If there is a gas relief line from the valve to the pilot assembly, disconnect it. In all likelihood, your new valve will not have a connection for a relief line, so you can just leave it disconnected. (The relief line is a relic from the days of "diaphragm gas valves," which used gas pressure to operate the valve itself.) 6. Using 2 pipe wrenches, disconnect the gas piping from the existing valve. 7. If there is room to spin the valve in place in the furnace, disconnect it there. Otherwise, it will be necessary to remove the valve, manifold, and burner assembly to get the valve out. 8. Clean all pipe threads using a wire brush. Apply dope or gas-rated teflon tape in the approved fashion (set back 2 threads from the end of the pipe, overlapping by 1/2). 9. Tighten all gas connections using 2 wrenches. Reconnect the pilot tubing (if present). Reconnect the wiring per your diagram or photos. 10. Attach a manometer and tubing in order to read and calibrate manifold pressure. 11. Turn on the gas and leak test the connections using a combustible gas leak detector, soap, and/or meter dial test. 12. Turn on the gas valve itself (it is usually shipped in the OFF position). If it is a "standing pilot" valve, light the pilot according to the instructions. 13. Turn on the furnace electrical power, and set the thermostat to call for heat. 14. When main flame lights, confirm manifold pressure. It should not exceed the pressure listed on the furnace nameplate (often 3.5" W.C.), but may under-fire by up to 10%, if desired. 15. Shut down the furnace and remove the manometer and tubing. Reseal the pressure tap. 16. Turn the furnace back on and check all gas connections downstream of the gas valve (using a combustible gas leak detector and/or soap). A note: when using a combustible gas leak detector, it is not unusual to pick up a small amount of gas at the outlet of a valve (ie, at the burner ports), when the heat is shut off. It's been my experience that somewhere between 10%-25% of all gas valves do not seal off completely. The HVAC Veteran (MORE)
You should not be relighting the furnace, if your unit does not have an automatic ignitor you merely need to relight the pilot light and the instructions to do that specifically for your equipment can be found somewhere on the unit.
The vent directs fumes from the gas burning through the flue pipe and safely out of your house. Without this vent, you run the serious risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Pilot gas is the very small flow/burner used to maintain an ignition flame in a gas appliance. Sometimes called a pilot light, or pilot flame, it's used to ignite the main burner.
No you need not adopt the unique furnaces, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you had best actually undergo with it once. Furnace Filters, Air Conditioning Filters at Air Sponge Filter Company
The manifold if the metal tube that directs the gas from the gas valve to (2-10) orifices so each orifice receives the same amount of pressure. This manifold is factory made and should never be changed.
The right gas pressure for a gas furnace to operate well is between12 to 13 WC. However, it can still operate as low as 10 WC.
You have a problem in the regulator, or you need a new 'thermocouple' . Both simple work for a competent gas fitter - I'd recommend calling one.
Primary air is the air that mixes with the gas before the gas is burned.
An ignitor on a gas furnace is an electric spark. An electric current is sent along a conductor, when it reaches the end the electric energy jumps across a gap to another conductor. This jumping electricity (think of it as a really tiny lightning bolt) creates a spark hot enough to ignite fuel.
Furnace filters control the amount of particles that pass out of the furnace and into the house. They are essentially the first line of defence in keeping the air in your home clean.
The purpose of the vent on the furnace is to ventilate flue gasesout side of the house.
The simple answer is yes it produces heat and is distributed to the rooms in your house; unless however, you are using electric baseboard heat which works on convection, or electric radiant heating panels.
the oil filter is housed in a metal canister at the bottom front of the engine just behind the radiator. you need to undo the splash guard from beneath the engine to get to it.
In most vehicles now the fuel pump is located in the gas tank. A lot of filters are located in the tank also depending on the vehicle. Some filters located on firewall, framerails, etc..

Inexpensive furnace filters can be found at most mass retailers, such as Wal-Mart, Target, Home Depot, and such. If you perfer not to drive, you can find them rather inexpensive online at Amazon and Ebay.
an electric furnace runs off of 208/230 Volts while a typical gas furnace runs off of 120 also a gas furnace will have a valve for the gas relay where the gas enters the furnace.
Often it is propane, gasoline, or other natural gases. Still, anything that can like can be fuel, with the gas just fueling the fire; there are numerous fire types.
There are many places to find gas furnace prices. One can look on sites like Furnace Price Guides, Century Gas Furnace, and Consumer Reports. One can also find gas furnace prices by going to a local heating supply store.
A furnace filter should be used and should be changed about every three months. It is important to have one because they filter out dirt and dust which otherwise clog up the furnace and stop it working as well as it should.
Furnace Filters can be purchased at places like Home Depot, Acklandsgrangier, Canadian Tire, Rona, Amazon, Loews and many other outlets, most of these outlets have their own website that you could also place your order and have it Shipped to your door.
Natural gas furnaces work by combining natural gas with air and lighting it. This results in a flame that heats up the air and warms the rest of the house.
A person can find a gas furnace in dozens of home improvement stores nationwide, like Home Depot, Sears, Lowe's, Energy Star and many other professional home improvement stores.
There are many places online where one could purchase a gas furnace. One could buy from Lennox, Holmes Heating, Express HVAC, Bryant, Ruud, or even eBay.
