evolution of furnaces

Have you noticed some of the most notable technological advancements that make furnace units outstanding in today’s HVAC industry? Do you know how they had changed drastically over the past few years? If you are curious about its remarkable evolution, let us get this started!

Home Heating Of The Past

We suspect many of you were raised in a small row house with huge vents in between the dining room and living room. If you can still recall, these vents are heating the entire space of your home using the equipment’s forced hot air. However, with this kind of heat-generating system, homeowners find it hard to harmonize the heated indoor air with their home’s comfort demands. In some instances, they have to open their windows a tad to stabilize the indoor temperature since the equipment heats the space too much. Other home heating options used by homeowners are simple fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, gas and oil heating, kitchen’s cast iron stoves, and other alternatives that can provide comfort during the cold months. Modern homeowners perhaps cannot imagine their situation when they have to live the old ways. After knowing all these facts, let us just be thankful about where everything had started.

Home Heating Nowadays

The heating technology has paved the way so we can experience what true home comfort really means. With modern home heating technologies, we can experience better comfort, more efficient operation, enhanced performance, and greater savings. Now, most houses in Dallas, TX and surrounding areas are using high-efficient natural gas-powered furnaces. Here are the technology improvements added to modern furnaces:

  • Multiple Stage Operation. Modern furnaces with multiple stage operation features can vary firing capacity to meet your required indoor comfort at a given time.
  • Blower Delay. Modern furnaces have a blower delay, which assures that your ducts are heated by the time the air starts to move through them.
  • Variable-Speed Technology. High-efficiency gas furnaces contain variable-speed blower motors that can vary the speed of the blown air inside your home. This is to ensure that the unit meets your heating comfort demand. A variable-speed technology can offer you a better mix of air and help reduce the cold and hot spots in your living space.
