What’s a Blower?

What does a blower on a gas furnace do?

A blower is used to move air through the air ducts in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. It’s an important and necessary part of an air handling system, which brings fresh air into the building. It helps move air from one duct to another and from one vent to another vent. A blower consists of 3 components: fan blade, a belt, and the motor itself. If one part breaks, the whole thing wouldn’t work.

Maintaining an HVAC blower

  • Cleaning the fan blades can provide the blower to run without interruptions
  • Inspecting the belts for cracks or frayed edges since the belts are almost continuously running during the season
  • Lubricating the motor to ensure smooth running

One should ensure that the blower is operational because it is responsible for the airflow through the ducts. If you are experience problems with the airflow, take a look at the blower motor, blade, and belt. If none of those are the issue, call your local air conditioning and heating expert.
