WHY USE THE EXACT DRAFT INDUCER BLOWER THAT MATCHES THE ORIGINAL BLOWER?
- To restore the equipment to full and safe operating conditions.
- Manufacturers of “equivalent” alternatives are not privy to the details and lab testing which occurred during the OEM product development.
- It meets the OEM specifications and has been tested to match OEM performance requirements.
- Improper airflow rates can also impact the function of the pressure switches and other safety devices.
- The blower housing and impeller must be made of materials that can withstand the corrosive chemical compounds present in flue gas.
- Using an “equivalent” draft induced blower that is not approved by the OEM for use on the furnace system makes the furnace non-compliant with the OEM’s original agency approval.
- Must be able to mount the unit correctly on OEM equipment.
