With the introduction of 2 stage furnace technology the ability to have more control over the efficiency of a system was not only significantly improved for the installer but also gave the homeowner much more control. Giving everyone the power to enhance their comfort at home and also reducing the load on the system when conditions are less than extreme outdoors. This technology motivated each manufacturer to continue to develop better and longer lasting products for the consumer which improved the HVAC industry as a whole.
The old single stage design uses the same amount of energy to start and run regardless of the outside temperature. The standard furnace is designed from the manufacturer with the coldest days, of the area in which they are installed, in mind. So, every time your furnace kicks on and the outside temperature is not the coldest common temperature then your furnace will be over-sized, will be working too hard, and consequently using too much energy.
At Queen City Heating and Cooling, we install all of our 2 stage furnaces with a compatible thermostat that controls all staging. This setup allows you, the homeowner, to control the temperature inside your home with ease and ensures your system will run more efficiently every time it fires up.
