The furnaces that are available today are many times more efficient than the systems that were installed just a decade or two ago. This is partially due to the fact that furnaces are simply built better nowadays, but also because of the new technology and features that have emerged in the heating industry in recent years as you'll see below.
These advancements have allowed high efficiency furnaces to do two things: extract more heat out of the gas they consume and only use the amount of energy that's necessary to get the job done at any given time
This type of furnace has only one stage of operation. It can either be turned on or turned off. This also means it has one running speed and when it is turned on it is pumping out heat as fast as it can. These types of furnaces are not as controlled so the comfort level might not be as effective as other types of furnaces, but they have low cost of installation.
This type of furnace has two settings, full and half speed. This is a more efficient way to heat and provides for better comfort because it can move the air at a slower pace. There is more control over the temperature in your house. This type of furnace also tends to be quieter since it does operate at full speed all the time.
Modulating Variable Speed Furnace
This kind of furnace modulates the speed and heat output based on the temperature outside and the desired comfort level. This furnace only works as much as you need it, this makes it the most energy efficient type of furnaces. It also provides the best air quality since the fan can run even when the furnace isn’t heating and thus continually circulate the air in your house though the filter in your system. These furnaces often will cost the most up front but will save you money in the long run on your energy costs.
