How Does a Condensing Furnace Work?
A condensing furnace works in pretty much the same way a traditional furnace does. Gas burners deliver heat into the first heat exchanger and the combustion process leaves behind steam. This is where the difference lies. That steam is sent to a secondary heat exchanger, where it is condensed and turned into a liquid. The hot water is then added to the regular stream. Using that extra heat that would normally just be lost up the flue to warm your home is a real energy saver.
Single Stage, Two Stage, or Variable Speed Furnace?
There are three types of furnaces available on the market today. We can help you find the one that works best by analyzing your heating requirements, existing ductwork, insulation, and your budget.
The three types of furnaces we install are:
● Single Stage Furnaces
Single speed furnaces only have one high stage of heat output. They continually pump out the maximum amount of heat that the furnace is designed for, regardless. There is very little subtlety to a single stage furnace.
● Two Stage Furnaces
Two speed furnaces operate much more efficiently than single speed models. The first speed runs at about 65% of the furnace’s full capacity. When the temperature outside drops, the second speed kicks in to provide the extra warmth. A 2-speed furnace is also much quieter since it doesn’t operate at 100% capacity every time it runs. That’s fewer emissions and less carbon dioxide for the environment.
● Variable Speed Modulating Furnaces
In Variable Speed Modulating Furnaces, the fan motor can move at different speeds to control the amount of heated air pumped through your home. Even when the furnace is not physically “on,” the motor can still operate and continually circulate air through your home.
Whichever furnace you choose, we are confident that you’ll save money when we put it in. Trane furnaces may cost slightly more upfront but the savings add up fast in energy costs over the lifetime of the equipment.
