Boise, Nampa and Caldwell's Variable Speed Furnace Experts


Variable-Speed Furnace Installation

Variable-speed furnaces circulate more air throughout the home for longer periods of time, reducing air stratification room-to-room and floor-to-floor. These longer run cycles of the furnaces can improve air quality by increasing air filtration.  Variable-speed furnaces offer significant operating cost savings and whisper quiet operation over the older heating systems. These systems also feature an ECM blower motor that uses less electricity than a 100 watt light bulb. Standard furnace motors use nearly 500 watts.  The benefits of having a Variable Speed furnace or a blower motor with a VFD (variable frequency drive) in it is that it only runs as fast as it needs to instead of only running in one speed like a standard furnace.  A second benefit is that they are much quieter, the slower the fan speed the quieter the equipment is. In the end it translates to savings! If you are looking for help figuring out what kind of furnace is best for you and your family give us a call or click on the link below to contact us via e mail for an estimate on a new heating system.
