Are you ready to save money on your energy bills? If your heating system is more than 15 years old, needs frequent repairs, or doesn’t meet your needs, it’s time for a change. Replacing an outdated model with a new modulating gas furnace can often cut your heating bills in half. Learn how these innovative systems elevate your comfort and lower your energy expenses.
Self-Regulating Gas Valves
In an older furnace, the gas valves open to deliver fuel whenever your thermostat calls for heat. Once your home reaches the desired setting, the valves close up again. That kind of on/off operation often results in uncomfortable swings in temperature. In contrast, the valves in a modulating gas furnace automatically adjust the fuel flow to match your comfort needs. Most of the time, they operate in a low-fire setting, saving you money on heating costs.
Variable Speed Blowers
No one likes waiting in the cold for the furnace to start running. That blast of hot air when it finally switches on can also cause discomfort. A modulating gas furnace equipped with a variable speed blower eliminates the problem. When heating demands are low, the blower delivers warm air at a lower speed, then ramps up again whenever you need it. Altering speeds to meet your needs ensures you always stay warm and cozy without breaking the bank.
