This definition defines the core of everything we do at Synergy3. By working cohesively with our clients and achieving a unified vision, we are able to achieve greater results than we or our clients could produce individually. One plus One does equal Three when working in partnership with Synergy 3.
Furnaces come in a variety of configurations, starting with the type of fuel used, propane, natural gas, or oil. Furnaces are then subcategorized by efficiency, standard efficiency is typically 80% with high efficiency being loosely defined as 90%+. From a rebate perspective with utility providers, high efficiency will typically mean 95% plus. Additionally, furnaces can come in single stage, two stage, or fully modulating configuration. While the fuel type of a system is predicated upon your existing fuel type, the efficiency and the staging of the furnace can be tailored to the consumer.
Conventional Furnace | Single Stage Furnaces
Single stage furnaces are the least expensive furnace option, they are typically durable and less prone to failure due to the rudimentary operation. A single stage furnace is not unlike a light switch, when a call for heat comes in the unit turns on and heats until the temperature is achieved and then shuts off.
Condensing Furnaces | Two Stage Furnaces
Two stage furnaces are work as the name implies, two stages. Unlike a single stage unit, a two stage furnace will run at one speed to achieve the desired temperature and then shift to a lower speed to keep the air in the space circulating. Essentially, a two stage furnace will provide a more effective mixture of air within a home resulting in a more even temperature throughout. This will reduce the amount of time the system needs to run and when it does run, it will run at a lower speed which uses less energy.
Condensing Furnaces | Modulating Furnaces
Modulating furnaces are best described like a gas pedal in a car, as you depress the pedal to increase speed the motor in the vehicle increases output to achieve the desired speed. The same is true for a modulating furnace, the system can have up to 60 stages and can control the motor to the most efficient level to achieve the desired temperature. Like its two stage counterpart, the system will dial back the motor output to maximize circulation of conditioned air which in turn increases system efficiency.
Of course, even the best heating system does experience wear and tear. Our technicians are trained to repair furnaces and heating units as needed, including emergency and non-emergency calls.
