Mute the speaker Listen to this using a male or female voice M/F

Operating with natural or propane gas, your Coleman furnace blower's electric fan draws cool air in, heats the air, and then propels the warm air through ducts to distribute heat throughout your home. The air returns to the furnace as cooler air. The furnace burner looks like a row of tubes in which the correct amount of air and fuel mix in order to burn effectively. Your Coleman furnace also has two high temperature limit switches to protect it from overheating by turning off the power to the ignition controlling the gas valve. You must reset the Coleman furnace switch to get your furnace operating again. (See Reference 4 #3 & #5, and Reference 5)

The inspection reveals wear and tear, such as rust, frayed wires and leaks. A professional will also inspect the ducts, blower, fuel line and every part of your furnace. Inspect the furnace yourself at least every 90 days. (See Reference 1 and Reference 2 pg 6 "Periodic Inspection")
