A gas furnace is the king of toasty warm air during a frigid Utah winter season. Modern furnaces offer new features that raise comfort and efficiency levels like never before.
In the past, a furnace flame was either all of the way on or off. Then two-stage heating was introduced which allowed a flame to burn at half the intensity which saved money on gas bills. Now, modulating flames can adjust at micro increments for optimal efficiency. Condensing technology utilizes heat energy that was lost in the past.
If you have a furnace in a closet near a living area, you know how loud they can be. Well guess what? With a variable speed ECM fan motor, those days are over. Variable speed fans not only raise the comfort level in your home, but they’re whisper quiet, literally transforming the heating and air conditioning experience (remember, the fan motor is used with the A/C in the summer).
The efficiency of a furnace is measured with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating. The AFUE shows the percentage of fossil fuel that is actually utilized as heat energy. But keep in mind that even if you purchase a furnace with an AFUE of 98%, overall heating efficiency is affected by much more.
