Understanding Forced-Air Furnaces

There are two "families" of forced-air furnaces available on the market today, 90 Plus Efficiency and 80% Efficiency.  The principle differences between the two families, is the way that the combustion air is processed, and how the furnaces are vented.  Inside your furnace there is a device called a "heat exchanger".  This is where the combustion takes place and the heat from the burned natural gas or propane is transferred into your home.  While the furnace burners are operating, the furnace blower moves air past the outside of the heat exchanger and the warmed air is sent through the ductwork and into the rooms of your home.  After the energy from the burnt gas is used up, the flue gasses pass through the heat exchanger and are vented to the outside.

 

90 Plus Furnaces

 A 90 Plus furnace has two heat exchangers (a primary and a secondary) and are commonly called "condensing" furnaces.  These furnaces are capable of extracting at least 92% of the heat from combustion and transferring it into your home.  The term "90 Plus" means just that, the efficiency rating is above 90 percent.  For each $1.00 of natural gas that the furnaces uses, at least 92% (or $.92) is used to actually heat your home and the remaining 8% (or $.08) is vented to the outside.  The 90 Plus furnaces do not connect to your conventional chimney or flue pipe.  Because of the extremely low exhaust temperatures produced by 90 Plus furnaces, they are vented directly to the outside through the sidewall or roof of your home using PVC plastic pipe.  All Carrier 90 Plus furnaces are "sealed combustion" and use outside air for combustion, which means that none of the air inside your home that you paid to heat is used to support the burner flame, thus saving more energy.

 

80% Efficiency Furnaces

An 80% efficiency furnace has only one (or primary) heat exchanger and extracts at least 80% of the energy from the combustion process and transferring it into your home.  Simply stated, for each $1.00 of natural gas or propane that is used by the furnace, at least 80% (or $.80) is actually used to heat your home.  The remaining 20% (or $.20) is vented out through your chimney or flue pipe. All 80% furnaces connect to your existing chimney or flue pipe.

 

Single-Stage, Two-Stage & Modulating

Single-stage gas furnaces are available in both 80% and 90% efficiencies.  The term “single-stage” means simply that the furnace’s burners fire at one fixed heating level.  When the thermostat tells the furnace to heat, the gas valve opens and the burner flame lights.  When the thermostat is satisfied, the burners shut-off.

 

Two-stage gas furnaces are also available in both 80% and 90% efficiencies.  These furnaces use a microprocessor along with a two-stage gas valve to control the burners at a high or low rate, depending on the heat demand. When the outside temperatures are moderate, the burners operate at a lower rate.  If the outside temperatures are very cold, then the furnace will operate at the higher rate in order to keep up with the demand.  Some models change stages based on a fixed period of time, while others use a computer program to “analyze” the previous run times and adjust accordingly.  This is the method Carrier uses and calls it “adaptive technology”.

 

Modulating gas furnaces are very high efficiency furnaces, usually 95% and higher.  These models also use computer technology along with special gas valves to control the burner output.  The burner levels on these models operate at varying levels hence the term “modulating”.  When the room thermostat calls for heat, the furnace fires and starts operating at a “medium” level.  The furnace operates at this level for a short period and as the temperature gets closer to the set point, the furnace “modulates” to the lowest level until the thermostat is satisfied.  In cases where the thermostat is set significantly higher than the room temperature or the heat demand is high, the furnace will operate on the highest stage in order to warm the home up as fast as possible.

 

Standard Blower Motors vs. Variable-Speed

Today's furnaces are available with standard or variable-speed blower motors.  Most fixed-capacity furnaces today with standard blower motors will consume about 625 watts of electricity under normal operating conditions.  Variable-speed blower motors operated in the continuous fan mode will use less electricity than a 100-watt light bulb.  A typical variable-speed furnace with air conditioning will save approximately $350 to $400 per year in electricity costs.  Additionally, variable-speed motors are much quieter than conventional motors and improve air circulation which results in reduced temperature swings and greater indoor comfort.
