Even though we don’t have a need for a furnace as long here in the Vegas area, there are definitely still several months out of the year that many people are relying on their furnace to provide them with heat. If you are living in a home that is getting older and you know it may be time to replace your furnace, it is important to understand there are a couple of options to choose from when it comes to your furnace. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about different types of furnaces to help you make the best informed decision of which one will fit your needs the best.
Single Phase VS 2 Stage Furnaces
When you are thinking about getting a new furnace, there are a couple of things that you are going to be expecting from it. You are also thinking about your budget. Replacing a furnace is an expensive endeavor no matter how essential it may be. Hands down, a single phase furnace will be the more affordable furnace when it comes to upfront costs. When thinking about the long term costs of operation, a 2 stage furnace will be more efficient and do a better job of ensuring you are comfortable. A single phase furnace will be working at its maximum power all the time when it is operating. A 2 stage furnace will work at full power to initially heat your home, but then it will continue to operate at a lower power to keep your home within one or two degrees of your optimal comfort. This is far more efficient than a single phase furnace is.
Standard VS Variable Speed Furnace Models
A standard furnace will operate using a blower that runs at the same power all the time. A variable speed model will operate using a blower that slows down and speeds up depending on how much your home needs to be warmed up. The variable speed model will keep your home at an even temperature which will make your home more comfortable. While a variable speed furnace is a little more expensive up front, you can end up making up the cost over the life of the furnace because it costs less to operate it.
