Lennox EL296V

Are you in search of a new residential furnace? Have you considered a model that has two stages of heating? One of the features you should look out for is a two-stage heating system.

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is a licensed heating company in Brooklyn Center MN that distributes and installs all kinds of furnaces, including two-stage models.

Differences Between Single-Stage and Two-Stage Furnaces

Conventional single-stage furnaces only run at singular capacity. This means that even when the weather is rather mild, a single-stage furnace still runs at the same capacity it would if it were extremely cold. This causes you to spend too much on heating your home, which you wouldn’t have to if you have a two-stage heating system installed in your home.

Two-stage systems are furnaces that operate at two separate capacities, usually high and low. The low setting is utilized about 75 percent of the time, while the high setting is only used when it’s too cold outside. Compared to a single-stage furnace, a two-stage heating system consumes less energy, saving you money on utilities.

A two-stage furnace also offers more consistent heating throughout your home — even at a lower setting. This allows for more even heating with much smaller temperature changes. On the other hand, a single furnace releases large amounts of heat every time the system is turned on, causing hot and cold spots in your home.

“Short cycling” is a problem caused mostly by single stage furnaces. It happens when the system underperforms and turns itself on and off randomly. Not only does this problem cost you a lot of money on energy, but it also shortens your equipment’s lifespan. On the other hand, a two-stage furnace performs much better by minimizing the occurrences of system short cycling. This puts less strain on the furnace, which helps lower the changes of system failures and extends the unit’s life.

In addition, a two-stage furnace will provide better air filtering in your home. That’s because a two-stage unit works more consistently compared to a single-stage unit. Since it runs more often, it pushes more air through your duct network, circulating more air and filtering the air much more efficiently.
