debate with a 34 year electrician.
you claim to have 34 years of experience but you stated that a forced air furnace runs off of 220 volts
that is completely false
I own an electrical business
you own an electrical business but yet you do not know the difference between 120 volts and 220 volts...
I'm a electrician who have installed and wired hundreds of furnace
you claim to have installed hundreds of furnaces but you stated that the furnace runs off of 220 volts which is completely incorrect
Better yet, grab a fluke meter to see if 220 is there, if there's no current
a furnace DOES NOT run off of 220 volts
it runs off of 120 volts just like a natural gas clothes dryer
the major electrical component in a natural gas dryer is the motor to drive the drum and blower
the major electrical component in a natural gas furnace is a similar motor for the blower - that is why it is called a forced air furnace
an electric clothes dryer runs off of 220 volts and the higher voltage is for the heating elements
a natural gas clothes dryer does not need 220 volts because the natural gas heat dries the clothes
but of course you knew all of that...
