Modulating Gas Furnaces: The Most Energy Efficient Furnace

There are 3 types of gas furnaces; single stage, two-stage, and modulating gas. The most commonly installed system is a single stage gas furnace. This furnace allows for only 100% capacity using the most amount of energy. The two-stage gas furnace will operate in two stages typically referred to as low and high fired heating. Modulating gas furnaces allow for a variable-capacity and achieve the highest savings with comfort.

Energy Efficient Gas Furnaces Save You Money

Modulating gas furnaces work similar to how a high-performance automobile performs in cruise control, automatically making proper adjustments to maintain maximum fuel efficiency. The gas valve on the modulating furnace will open in a range from 40% to 100%, this is adjusted depending on your home temperature settings. Some of the modulating gas furnaces adjust in increments as little as .5% and can hold your set temperature within one degree. This will help keep the family more comfortable by eliminating home comfort fluctuations and is designed to help you save on natural gas consumption. The elimination of these fluctuations has another benefit; these modulating systems provide the utmost amount of efficiency in a heating system.
