This type of operation minimizes sound levels, optimizes efficiency and provides a more even and comfortable temperature
My furnace has definitely reached the end of its service life. Last winter, I spent a fortune on my utility bills. The heating system ran just about non stop. I kept lowering the thermostat setting and yet the furnace couldn’t match demand. My whole family bundled up in sweaters and complained about the chilly house. I worried that the system would fail in the middle of winter and leave us without heat. Rather than chance another season of sub zero temperatures with my ancient furnace, it’s time to replace it. I’ve been researching the various manufacturers and models of heaters. There is a significant price difference between the most basic and top-of-the-line models. The less expensive furnaces achieve much lower AFUE ratings. They typically offer only two stage heating, which means that the system is able to run at either 50% or 100% capacity. The best heating systems include adaptable-speed technology. This allows the equipment to automatically cater output to the exact needs of the home. There is seldom a time when the furnace needs to operate at maximum capacity. The better furnaces simply provide enough heat to maintain the ideal temperature. They run for longer cycles but a very low speed. These systems can operate anywhere between 40 and 100%, adjusting in tiny one percent increments. This type of operation minimizes sound levels, optimizes efficiency and provides a more even and comfortable temperature. I am strongly considering spending a lot more money to save a great deal on my heating bills. I am convinced the larger initial investment would pay for itself in energy savings very quickly.
