The blower motor is found inside of the furnace and is the source of pressure that moves the air through the air ducts. Your typical residential furnace blower creates a static pressure that creates the push of the air that it is blowing out. It is important for the air duct system that supplies and returns the air throughout the house be free of obstruction.
The blower motor is an integral part of the furnace that typically ranges from 1/4 to 3/4 horsepower, depending on what sized furnace you have. Some of the blower motors require yearly lubrication, while some have factory sealed bearings that does not require yearly lubrications.
If your blower motor is not maintained properly, it can malfunction. When that happens, the motor can be burned or worn out. Your blower motor should spin freely. If it doesn’t spin freely, then it should be replaced altogether. Let our experts at Atlanta Air Pro give you a free evaluation for you if you suspect things are working correctly. If power is getting to the blower motor, but the motor still does not run, it may be because it is burned out. When this happens, the blower motor is not capable of being repaired. Replacing it is your only option.
How Your Blower Motor Works
Anytime a gas powered furnace is used, cold air enters it via air filters. That same air is then heated when it enters the heat exchanger compartment and then finally blown through the air ducts throughout all the rooms in your home. Dust and other air borne particles usually pass through the air filter which in turn can contaminate the furnace’s combustion chamber and other areas as well.
In time, the same dirt and dust can start to damage the furnace, if not treated properly. This dirt and dust can affect all the compartments in the furnace including the blower, the motor, combustion chamber and the filter system. This can in turn, decrease furnace efficiency which could result in unnecessary, higher utility bills.
Often times, neglected furnaces allows for the dust and dirt to build up to the point where it can cause premature failure, which can mean high repair bills or even having to purchase a new furnace altogether. In order to get the most out of your furnace, it’s important to have it cleaned and maintained at least yearly.
