Within the heating system, the solid-state electronic igniter provides one of the most crucial elements required for automatic comfort: the spark needed for ignition. When the electronic igniter is properly installed and serviced, the component will ensure that the burner will work effectively so the rest of the system provides heat efficiently and dependably. In this post, we'll give you a complete overview of electronic igniters, from the basics to the features to the evolution of the component's technology.
Over the past several years, the number of appliances that use electronic igniters has continued to increase thanks to all the benefits these devices provide. In fact, electronic igniters are a critical component of many modern heating systems because they provide more reliable and efficient automatic comfort than the transformers of the past. But what are the features of modern electronic igniters that allow them to provide these advantages, and what vocabulary do you need to know in order to ensure that they're properly maintained and serviced? In this post, we'll discuss the most prominent and beneficial electronic igniter features and terms that you need to know in order to understand their function in the heating system.
Advancements and innovations in the heating industry are usually designed with a few goals in mind: improving efficiency, enhancing safety, and creating a more reliable and convenient heating system for the customer, to name a few. Combustion cycles don't start if there isn't a reliable source of ignition. That's where advancements have improved each of these goals with the use of an advanced ignition system.
Every component in the heating system has a specific purpose and a role to play in generating and regulating heat for delivery to homes and facilities. These components must not only function correctly on their own but also in conjunction with the rest of the heating system in order to produce reliable heat. One particularly important piece of the system that has helped to increase heat reliability over the years is the solid-state, electronic igniter. The purpose of the igniter, overall, is to provide the high voltage spark necessary for fuel ignition. As the system's ignition source, the modern igniter ensures that the rest of the system provides dependable comfort to customers. In this post, we'll provide an introduction to igniters, how they function, and how technicians can service and troubleshoot them.
