Cold Weather Warns
Hello October! As those “cold in the morning and hot in the afternoon” September days flew past us, we’re now left to adjust to the chilly fall temperatures as winter grows closer. When the temperature outside drops, naturally there’s a desire for the temperature inside to raise! AKA, it’s time to toss on your coziest slippers, fire up the Bryant furnace and get ready for the cool weather to come!
Let’s talk furnace lingo. We’re going to define a couple of common furnace terms so we can help you can make the most informed decision about which furnace is best for your home.
Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE):
The amount of heat produced for each dollar of fuel used. The higher the rating, the lower your fuel costs will be.
Single-Stage Gas Valve Furnace:
A single-stage furnace has one level of heat output. When the furnace has been switched on it’s running at full capacity. The furnace will run until the desired temperature is reached. This type of furnace bodes well for small to mid-size homes and is definitely the most cost-effective option.
Two-Stage Gas Valve Furnace:
A two-stage furnace has two levels of heat output. You can run it at a low or high heat output, depending on weather conditions. On those frigid -40 days, you’re going to want to take advantage of the higher heat output to heat your entire home to a warm and comfortable temperature. If you have a larger home, a two-stage furnace will come in handy as it runs longer to evenly distribute heat throughout your home. With the ability to regular the temperature to within one degree of the thermostat setting, you have greater control when you choose a two-stage furnace.
Additional benefits of two-stage heating include quiet operation, improved air filtration, low-speed operation and efficient performance.
Modulating Gas Valve Furnace:
A modulating furnace has an automated valve that precisely controls the flow rate of the gas and adjusts accordingly to the heat lost in your home. Ensuring that when heat is lost, an automatic adjustment is made to restore it.
