Which Type of Furnace is Best for Your Home?

Which Type of Furnace is Best for Your Home?
If you’re worried your home’s heating system might not make it through the winter, it may be time to upgrade your furnace. But many homeowners today find themselves wondering how to choose a replacement among single stage, two stage and variable speed options? Which is the best fit for your home?
Single Stage Furnace
A single stage system operates on high whenever it runs, shutting off when your home's temperature matches the thermostat setting. Designed to heat your home during the coldest days of the year, these systems run at full capacity whenever they are in operation regardless of the temperature outside.
Pros and Cons:
  • Louder operation
  • Lower installation & repair costs
  • Bigger temperature swings
  • More fuel consumption and higher energy bills
 
Two Stage Furnace
A two stage system can operate at both a high and low stage of heating, adjusting its output based on the amount of heat needed indoors. Because its first stage runs the majority of the time at about 65% capacity in most climates, the two stage system also offers significant energy savings and quieter operation.
Pros and Cons
  • Less fuel consumption and lower energy bills
  • Only a few degrees in temperature swings
  • Quieter operation
  • Higher installation & repair costs
 
Variable Speed Furnace
Unlike a single stage furnace and two stage furnace, a variable speed system adjusts the output speed of the furnace’s blower motor based on the heating demands of your home. Not only does variable speed technology provide consistent heat output, it also continually circulates air throughout your home resulting in cleaner air and a more comfortable environment.
Pros and Cons
  • Less fuel consumption and lower energy bills
  • Healthier indoor air quality
  • Improved indoor comfort
  • Longer system life
  • Quieter operation
  • Higher installation & repair costs
 
The best fit for you may depend on your local weather conditions, comfort preferences, and the amount of time you plan on living in the home.
