Replacing my furnace Igniter - Canada

You can check the resistance with an Ohm meter to ensure the element is good. The recommended resistance is 50 to 90 Ohms for the flat style element igniters.

Your furnace original Silicon Carbide igniter has most likely been used by furnace manufactures for a long time. This old technology hasn’t changed much in almost 59 years.

They are very fragile, break easily.

Grease or dirt can cause early failure.

although they are available with different ceramic bases, most of the silicon carbide igniters are the same and they fail more than any other part of the furnace

Exact OEM manufacturer igniter replacements

These are the easiest way to replace these Hot surface HSI igniters:

With the same base and same plug as the original they will fit easily and quickly

Take care not to bump the element or to touch it with your fingers.

OEM may not always be the best choice when it comes to igniters.

www.heatingpartscanada.ca offers upgraded nitiride igniters with a ceramic bases similar to the OEM original parts. They provide different plugs to allow models to become exact fit replacements for hundreds of manufacturers’ igniters.

Why would I upgrade to a nitride igniter?

  • The newer Silicon Nitride Igniters are more durable and are harder to break.
  • They are easy to recognize by their smooth non-porous surface.
  • They also use less energy to operate then older original igniters and they will normally outlast the older style igniters by 2 -7 times.

These replacement igniters cost more but they will outlast the original igniters

For easy installation some nitride upgraded igniters offer retrofit kits, including multiple brackets to fit the mount in the current furnace. Manufactures such as Honeywell, White Rodgers and TrueStart offer retrofit igniter kits.

Always refer to igniter manufactures cross reference before retrofitting. In some cases the Nitride igniter may not work for instance, in a furnace that doesn’t utilize a flame sensor.

Furnace Basics Canada - learn your furnace operation

FURNACE OPERATION BASICS:Your furnace heating starts when the thermostat senses that the room temperature is below the temperature you required/set. Most homes in Canada have a thermostat set at 70 degrees / 22 celcius.The first step is for the furnace inducer motor to pull air through the unit starting the required combustion airflow. When proper airflow is established, the [...]
