Explaining A Variable Stage Furnace

When I’m in a consultation with a homeowner, we often discuss their current heating system. Many have a single-stage furnace, which, frankly, doesn’t meet the efficiency or comfort they expect. I choose not to sell single-stage furnaces because I believe in offering practical and comfortable solutions that truly improve their home environment.

Let me put it in simple terms, Mr. Smith. With your current single-stage system, it’s likely causing uncomfortable temperature swings – what we refer to as the ‘blanket effect.’ Imagine it’s winter, and your furnace blasts heat to reach the desired temperature, overdoing it to the point where it’s excessively warm. It’s a bit like when you’re in bed and you pile on the blankets because you’re cold, but then you end up tossing them off because you get too hot. The furnace then shuts off, and soon enough, you’re reaching for the covers again as the room cools down too much.

Now, this cycle of ‘on full blast, then off,’ leads to discomfort and could even contribute to you feeling unwell. That’s the reality of a single-stage furnace – it’s either all on or all off, with no in-between, causing these temperature fluctuations.

What I recommend is a step up to a two-stage or variable speed furnace. These models are designed for comfort. Here’s how they differ: as your home approaches the set temperature, the furnace scales back, providing a more consistent and gentle warmth. It reduces the gas flow and the fan speed, maintaining the temperature without the extremes of the single-stage system.

So instead of that blast of hot air followed by a chill, you get a steady, even heat that keeps your home comfortable. No more dry air, no more temperature swings, just a pleasant warmth that makes winter nights cozier. It also benefits your air conditioning system by providing a more consistent airflow, which translates to better cooling in the summer months.

In essence, if your home is where your heart is, and not just a temporary stop or investment property, a variable speed furnace is the way to go. It’s about quality of life, comfort, and ultimately, efficiency.
