Think Variable Speed When Replacing Your Blower Motor

If it’s time to get your home’s heating system upgraded, if your budget can afford it, consider the very best technology and system available. You want a heating system that will be green/efficient and last as long as possible. It’s time to think about installing a furnace that utilizes a variable-speed blower motor.

Unlike traditional furnaces, with blower motors that run at maximum speed all the time, a variable-speed motor is built with internal intelligence that allows it to adjust its speed to conditions in your HVAC system and home, including the efficiency of the overall system and the temperature needs at the time.

Homeowners can experience exceptional benefits from this new furnace technology including:

  • Cleaner Air. When the furnace blower runs at lower and alternating speeds, it runs for longer durations, catching more dirt and debris to get caught get in the air filters.
  • Quieter. Because the motor runs at varied and often lower speeds, not one constant full blast, it’s much quieter, especially when it turns on.
  • More Efficient. When the motor runs at lower speeds, much less energy is used. The homeowner can experience big savings on the home’s energy costs. This also means less wear and tear on internal components, extending the life of your furnace.
  • Better at Removing Moisture. If you’ve ever experienced a San Joaquin Valley wet spell, you’ll appreciate this fact. The variable-speed blower can remove up to four times more humidity from your home than a normal blower, mainly because it stays on for longer periods but at the lower speed.
