A combustion inducer blower is a unit used in heating, ventilating and air conditioning equipment such as furnaces. The inducer blower draws air through the furnace's combustion passageway to promote a more efficient running of the combustion, and to allow thorough heat transfer. An effective combustion inducer blower helps to extend the life of the furnace.
