Make Your Heating System More Efficient with a Variable Speed Blower, St. Louis, Missouri

Whether you own a home or commercial property, you’re always looking for ways to keep your bills low. That means taking steps to make your heating system more efficient. One of the best ways to achieve this goal is to stay in constant contact with a heating and cooling team in your area. Schedule annual inspections with your heating contractor, and take this opportunity to ask about what you can do to boost your system’s efficiency. When it comes to your furnace, they may recommend making the switch to a variable speed unit.

Heating System St. Louis MOThis term refers to the blower inside of your heating system. This component controls the flow of air throughout the building. In an older furnace equipped with an everyday blower, they tend to run at a relatively steady and constant rate, giving you little opportunity to make adjustments and reduce your energy usage. However, as the name suggests, a variable speed furnace blower can operate at different levels and strengths. As a result, they’re popular among heating and cooling professionals because they use less electricity than an everyday blower. If your stock blower were always running, you’d probably spend and additional $350-$500 a year as a homeowner. With a variable speed unit, you’ll pay closer to $45-50 a year. 

Also, it helps eliminate cold spots, since you have more flexibility when it comes to determining where the heat is distributed within a house. If you run it full-time, it also improves the overall indoor air quality.

To learn more about making this essential upgrade to your heating system, get in touch with a professional and discuss your options.
