What Does a High Efficiency Motor Mean for You?

Many HVAC systems, especially ones installed 12 or more years ago, use low-efficiency motors. These motors have just one or two speeds and will engage only when the temperature changes from what is programmed into your thermostat. Just as starting and stopping your car is not efficient driving, neither is this on again/off again system an efficient way of maintaining consistent temperature. Today’s more efficient HVAC motors offer a wide variety of speeds, which allows them to provide a more comfortable temperature at a decresased cost over a lifetime.An efficient HVAC motor with a variety of speeds will automatically identify how best to move your air over the course of the day, sometimes pushing more air, and sometimes hardly any at all. Where a traditional motor may let air grow too warm or cold in one room and stagnate in another, these systems don’t. By more constantly pushing air through your home, temperatures see fewer fluctuatuins and the whole home actually feels more comfortable. The benefits of consistently circulating air means your unit will com on less often, even while comfort increases. This adds up to energy savings.
