By automatically adapting to the needs of the indoor space, the idea maintains a consistent temperature and suffers less strain
I have been researching new furnaces. There are many major manufacturers that offer forced air heating systems that include a 98% AFUE rating. These systems feature something called bendy speed technology that makes all the difference. Older heating systems used to be strictly single-staged models. That meant they were only capable of operating at maximum speed. The heating system would start up and work at full blast until the temperature control setting was reached. Then the unit would shut down completely. This off and on repetition caused temperature swings, consumed a lot of energy and increased wear and tear. The later and better models offered several-speed operation, allowing the idea to run at low and high capacity. This increased energy efficiency ratings and improved comfort, my current furnace is a several-stage model and it’s just about reached the extent of its lifespan. It’s starting to need many minor repairs every winter. I’m not totally satisfied with its ability to keep up with demand, and I’m always aggravated by my weekly heating bills! Living in the northern part of the country, all of us deal with approximately 8 weeks of cold weather. Sub zero hot and cold temperatures are fairly common. Investing in a current furnace would be a substantial expense however make a major difference. Adaptable speed compressors can adjust in one percent increments someplace between 40 and 100% capacity. Other than the first time all of us start up the furnace in the winter, it never needs to blast at max speed. Most often, the heating system could run at a lower speed and use less energy. By automatically adapting to the needs of the indoor space, the idea maintains a consistent temperature and suffers less strain. There’s also less problem with overly dry air.
