Fully modulating furnaces are next-generation, top-of-the-line heaters that make traditional furnaces seem obsolete. If you’re looking to upgrade in Oak Ridge, NC, these sophisticated heating systems are worth checking out. Here’s what you have to gain:
No More Uncomfortable Temperature Variations
Modulating furnaces have variable-speed blowers and modulating gas valves. They maintain consistent indoor temperatures throughout your home. Drafts, cold spots, and periodic blasts of hot and dry air are all done away with.
More Heat for Your Energy Dollar
With long and slow running cycles and constant incremental adjustments to output, modulating furnaces can precisely maintain your preferred temperature at all times. Heaters guzzle maximum energy while powering on. Fully modulating furnaces rarely turn off, so all the excessive energy consumption is eliminated.
At startup, the unit runs at full capacity to quickly generate heat. The blower fan starts at low speed and gradually ramps up to full speed. As indoor temperatures warm up, the gas valve slowly closes to reduce heating output and associated fuel consumption.
A fully modulating heating system will pay for itself with energy savings in 3.5 to 5 years. If a modulating furnace has an ECM motor and is used continuously, the energy savings can be 70 percent. With AFUEs as high as 98 percent, modulating furnaces are top performers among today’s high-efficiency heating systems.
Uninterrupted Air Filtration
Modulating furnaces are running almost all the time. That means indoor air is continuously circulated through the heater’s filtration system. More airborne contaminants are removed from your environment.
Peace and Quiet
We all know how noisy furnace blowers can be when they power on. Modulating furnaces rarely power off, so a roaring blower at startup is abolished. While running, variable-speed blowers are exceptionally quiet.
