Any time you are looking to replace your furnace, it is going to be a big investment. Luckily, you can count on your furnace lasting between 20-25 years before you need to get a new one. However, if you do find yourself replacing your furnace, you need to know a little bit about them so that you can make an informed choice about which one is the right fit for your needs. Hal Mechanical is here to share some information of different features you may want in your new furnace.
1 or 2 Stage Furnace
Most people that are facing a furnace replacement want to have the most efficient furnace installed in their home so that they aren’t stuck wasting money on their energy bill each month. One of the ways you can do this is by choosing to have a 2 stage furnace installed in your home rather than a single phase furnace. While the upfront cost may be higher, homeowners can expect to see savings in the long term operation of the furnace because it is so much more efficient. A single phase furnace operates at its full power all the time to heat your home. A 2 stage furnace operates at full power initially, but then it will remain on at a lower power to maintain the temperature of your home. This is not only more efficient, but you may find that it keeps your home at a more comfortable temperature since the temperature will never drop more than a degree or two of what the thermostat is set at.
Standard or Variable Speed Furnace Models
This is another area in which some furnaces are more efficient than others. The standard speed furnace model will be less efficient than a variable speed model, but will cost less upfront. A standard speed furnace has a blower that operates at full speed all the time. If you choose a variable speed model, the blower will slow down and speed up depending on how much the temperature in your home needs to be increased. It is not only more efficient this way, but it will also create a more comfortable environment for you.
