When you use the term "element" to refer to a component within your furnace or HVAC system, there's a good chance you're talking about the heating element that determines how hot, or cool your home can be at any given time. Your furnace heating element is controlled by your HVAC thermostat, and it's the part that helps your furnace to warm your home during winter, or those cold autumn days. At Furnace Part Source, we have a wide selection of furnace elements that you can choose from to upgrade, or repair your heating system.

Choosing Your Next Heating Element

The heating element in a home-based temperature management system is generally a coil of pipe that's used to convert electricity into heat through a process called "resistive" heating. Basically, an electric current moves through the element and encounters resistance, which it responds to be letting off heat. The more electricity you push into your HVAC, the more heat comes out as a result.

Heating elements are a relatively simple component in most furnaces, but they can cause problems when they burn out or stop functioning as they should. At Furnace Part Source, we stock a wide selection of fantastic heating elements designed to help you upgrade and fix any problems with your furnace system.
