Hot Surface Ignitors

Furnace Hot Surface Ignitors

Found on only the most modern furnaces, hot surface ignitors or igniters are the latest solution for safely and effectively lighting gas flames upon unit start-up. They can replace pilot lights in older gas-powered systems. The system works by passing electricity through the Silicon Carbide or Silicon Nitride ignitor, causing the surface to glow red hot. Many have an OEM design that will meet regulations and standards.

Intended to offer clean and efficient heating to your furnace project, hot surface ignitors are a fantastic option for both residential and commercial heating solutions. They can also install within water heaters and boiling systems. Try to aim for a model that is universal. Especially with gas-powered furnaces, you want to aim for easy installation.

Honeywell Hot Surface Ignitor

Honeywell is one of the top brands when you have a strong call for heat. Some are designed to replace multiple series and improve on older models. The Honeywell #Q3400A1024, for example, will replace about five different Q3 series igniters, while having a versatile installation.

Ignitors for Gas Furnaces

Igniters are designed to be safer than pilot lights. They also reduce heating costs because pilot lights need to stay on all the time. Igniters, in contrast, will turn and and off whenever voltage is applied to their system. The two items can be used in tandem, such as with the Armstrong Furnace R42495-001 Pilot/Igniter/Sensor Assembly, to make the transition easier.

When To Replace Your Hot Surface Igniter

Certain signs will tell you when your ignitor has become faulty and needs either a repair or a replacement. Sometimes you can adjust the settings for when gas valves open, and ensure that the furnace is running smoothly.

Igniters are designed to glow when in use. If they aren’t glowing and remain dark, then that is a sign that they are not functioning properly. While the furnace may not be running for other reasons, do check the ignitors.

Chilly air is another red flag, when it comes out of your furnace, especially when it is not set to this function. Make sure your settings are on Heat or Auto; if they are and your air is chilly, then it is time for a replacement.
