Is your Atlanta home equipped to deliver maximum comfort and energy savings this winter? If you don’t already have a furnace with a modulating gas valve, it’s time to discover what you’ve been missing.
Heating That Adjusts to Your Needs
In a traditional heating cycle, your furnace operates at 100% output until your indoor temperature reaches your thermostat’s setpoint. This often happens quickly, resulting in short, frequent bursts of heat that can produce uncomfortable temperature fluctuations. With a modulating gas valve, however, a furnace can automatically adjust its heating power to suit the situation. This allows the furnace to achieve steadier, more uniform temperature control and improved comfort throughout your home.
Top-Notch Efficiency and Minimal Waste
Blasting your furnace at full power when you only need to take the chill off wastes a lot of energy. Unfortunately, standard furnaces don’t leave you much choice. That’s not a problem with a modulating furnace, which automatically adjusts the flow of gas based on your heating needs. This precise control significantly reduces waste, maximizes the efficiency of your furnace’s fuel consumption, and helps you keep costs down. In fact, modulating furnaces can save some homeowners up to $345 per year on utility bills.
Lasting Performance and Reliability
The cycle of starting up and shutting down puts a lot of stress on a furnace, especially when it’s repeated frequently. This short-cycling pattern happens most often when a furnace produces too much heat in too short a time. Since modulating furnaces automatically adjust their output to avoid this, they experience far less cycling and less wear and tear. That means fewer maintenance issues, fewer equipment malfunctions and a longer lifespan for your system.
