A household furnace is a major appliance permanently installed to provide heat to the interior of a home. An energy source heats air within the furnace, and then a fan blows the warm air throughout the house and pulls cooler air to the furnace. The air travels from the furnace to the rooms of the house through ductwork.
In the beginning gas furnaces worked on one (single) stage, on or off, and then years later with the need to save energy and increase comfort there was the introduction of the two stage furnace allowing the furnace to run at half itís full rated capacity when a lower demand was needed to heat a home.
Now with technology and demand you can get a three stage or even fully modulating gas furnace allowing the furnace to produce only the heat required to achieve ultimate comfort and energy savings.
Standard furnaces operate like your car in stop-and-go traffic. Fuel efficiency goes down and you're less comfortable. A modulating furnace is like highway driving, making slight operating adjustments while achieving maximum efficiency. This new condensing furnace with a modulating gas valve operates with more finesse to reduce temperature fluctuations, providing consistent indoor temperature, quiet operation, and an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) of up to 96.7%.
