Would you want to be stuck in first gear every time you drive? With a modulating furnace, you can shift gears for hotter and cooler days, saving energy and wear and tear on your HVAC system.
Here, we discuss what a modulating furnace is and why you may want to upgrade to one.
What is a modulating furnace?
Imagine a home furnace that perfectly adjusts its performance based on your comfort needs – that’s a modulating furnace. This ingenious device tweaks its gas burn rate and airspeed in real time, providing an unprecedented level of temperature control.
Instead of just ‘on’ and ‘off’ settings, a modulating furnace operates at a wide range of levels between its minimum and maximum capacity. The result? A significant boost to your home’s energy efficiency, a dramatic reduction in uncomfortable temperature swings, and an overall increase in your home’s comfort level.
Why should I consider buying one?
When it comes to replacing your furnace, your choice of furnace will make a significant difference to the money you will save. It’s easy to think of two reasons why you might want to consider your options carefully.
- Your Gas Bill
- Your Hydro Bill
We are all too aware that Ontario Electricity bills have increased over the years, so this is why you might want to invest in an efficient modulating furnace:
Energy costs are expected to rise
Heating and electricity are likely to rise considerably over the lifetime of your new furnace.
We regularly come across furnaces that we installed in our early years; some are 15-20 years old and still going strong. Needless to say, the gas furnaces we installed back then, and probably the one you have in your basement, are not the same as the latest models. Around 12 years is the recommended replacement time, and 12 years of gas and hydro bills amount to a lot of money.
Because of the technological improvements in gas furnaces, it pays to invest a bit more now to save over the long term.
