Amenities of a modern furnace


When my furnace was installed, it was considered a top-of-the-line model.

That was over twenty years ago, and there have been some big improvements in heating engineering since then.

My current heater is a two-stage model, allowing it to operate at either high or low speed. When the system was brand new and running at its best, the furnace achieved an 80% AFUE rating. We’ve never been overly happy with operational sounds and have had complaints with the heating system drying out our indoor air. I’ve started researching new furnaces and am amazed by the improvements in efficiency and features. Most of the premier models include variable-speed technology. This allows the system to adjust capacity anywhere between forty and one hundred percent technology. It can slow down or speed up in tiny one percent increments to supply the exact amount of heat necessary to maintain an ideal comfort level. This innovation avoids drafts and temperature fluctuation, minimizes wear and tear on components and provides greater opportunity of air filtration. The system uses less energy and causes less concerns with insufficient humidity. With AFUE ratings of up to 98%, these modern units actively work to pay for themselves. Plus, there are extra amenities available, such as zone control and wifi connectivity. I would love to be able to customize the temperature in each room of the house. No longer heating empty spaces would help to reduce utility bills. Each family member could personalize the comfort of their bedroom. Although a new furnace is a considerable investment, the lower utility bills would help to recover it. I’d also benefit from a more reliable heater that’s covered by a manufacturer’s warranty.
