Even though we are on the tail end of winter, it is still important that your furnace has what it takes to keep your home warm a little longer. If your furnace is hanging in the balance, you may be considering what replacing it may look like. The furnaces on the market today have some technology that hasn’t been there in the past. They are more efficient and can help you save money on your energy bills. Absolute P&M Services is here to talk about some of the technology you can find in today’s furnaces.
Hybrid Heating Systems
Just like the name implies, a hybrid system is going to use two sources to heat your home. It has combined two kinds of heating technology into one appliance. Rather than just having a gas or oil furnace or a heat pump, a hybrid system is going to combine the two. The hybrid system will use both gas and a heat pump to give you the ultimate heating experience. In this case, during the spring season when the weather is milder, your furnace will use an energy saving heat pump to keep you comfortable when needed. If the temperature falls and the heat pump can’t keep up, the gas or oil furnace will kick in to give it that extra push it needs. This can end up saving you money in the long run.
Variable Speed Furnace Technology
The heating system in your home works so hard to get the air inside your house warm. Once the air has been heated, it is up to the blower to get the air circulated evenly throughout the house. With a variable speed blower, different speeds can be used to get the job done more efficiently. They don’t only get the air circulating around the clock, but they also don’t use much energy while doing it.
2 Stage Furnace Burners
Many furnaces in the past have been single stage furnaces. This means that there is basically an on or off switch with nothing in between. When you have a two-stage furnace, you can use the heat as you need it. The best part about these two-stage burners is that they can detect how much heating is needed without you needing to do anything. They are usually quieter, have a longer lifespan and will use less energy that other furnaces that were available in the past. They give you the ultimate energy efficient heating for your home.
