Are you in the market for a new residential furnace? Consider the Lennox EL296V, a model equipped with the advantages of a two-stage heating system. Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning, a licensed heating company in Chanhassen MN, specializes in distributing and installing various furnaces, including advanced two-stage models.
Distinguishing Single-Stage and Two-Stage Furnaces:
Single-stage furnaces operate at a fixed capacity, irrespective of weather conditions. In contrast, two-stage systems offer dual capacities—high and low. The low setting is employed about 75% of the time, ensuring energy-efficient operation, which translates to cost savings for homeowners.
Two-stage furnaces provide more consistent heating throughout homes, minimizing temperature fluctuations. This stands in stark contrast to single-stage furnaces, which release large bursts of heat, creating uneven temperature zones. Additionally, two-stage furnaces reduce the occurrence of “short cycling,” a common issue with single-stage units that not only increases energy costs but also shortens equipment lifespan. The improved performance of two-stage furnaces minimizes strain, leading to fewer failures and prolonged unit life.
Moreover, two-stage furnaces enhance air filtering by operating more consistently than their single-stage counterparts. The frequent operation pushes more air through duct networks, ensuring efficient air circulation and improved filtration.
