In the case of the furnace, whenever the
temperature gets too cold, the thermostat starts the fan motor so that
the system's fan can begin drawing room air through vents and ductwork.
When air reaches the furnace cabinet, it passes through a filter, air
cleaner or other air quality system. It also moves through a heat
exchanger, which warms the air. Then, heated air is blown back into
ducts and living areas.
During summer months, the furnace is
still working, even though it's not heating rooms or burning fuel. It

So how does the air get cooled?
the thermostat senses the temperature is too warm, it activates the air
conditioner compressor, which pumps refrigerant through a loop of
piping that runs between the outside air-conditioning unit and indoor
cooling coil. As refrigerant passes through the cooling coil, typically
installed on top of the furnace, heat is extracted from the indoor air
circulating around it. The furnace blower then sends the conditioned
air to living spaces through ductwork.
That's basically how a
home comfort system works. Keep in mind, not all systems are created
equal. With a Lennox home comfort system, you can enjoy the highest
possible degree of comfort, energy efficiency and customizable control.
