A gas furnace is the king of toasty warm air on a cold North Florida winter day! And did you know that your gas furnace is used year round for home indoor comfort? The air conditioner relies on the fan motor in the furnace to move and condition the air, and without the fan motor, an air conditioner is useless.
A furnace’s efficiency is measured with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). This is simply a percentage of the fossil fuel that is actually turned into heat energy.
Our winter climate doesn’t demand crazy high furnace efficiency ratings. However, when looking at a new furnace, definitely take a look at a variable speed ECM fan motor. These modern fan motors make heating and air conditioning whisper quiet, and more comfortable. If you’ve been turning up the TV when the heating or A/C kicks on, those days can now be over.
