Variable features tightly control heating and air conditioning comfort and costs.

Lennox HVAC System

Heating and air conditioning equipment controls have come a long way since the first air conditioners were installed in the 1950s, but the truth is that most homeowners ignore these advancements. People resist change, and tapping into new benefits means you’ll have to make few adjustments to your routine. Once you get used to them though, you’ll see you can save a significant amount of money—both in the short and long term.

Consider how variable speed fans operate:

Variable speed fans have more than one speed setting.

They can be used to either provide a burst of warm air or to slowly maintain the temperatures already in place. Installing a variable speed fan does require a new thermostat, but it’s the perfect choice for predictable systems and programmable units known for shrinking your energy costs.

Fan speed doesn’t increase your fuel use.

Many homeowners crank the heat when they want their home to get warm quickly. This burns extra fuel without reason. Simply turning up the speed of your fan for a while will have the same results without the extra cost.

Variable units also decrease wear, allowing you to get more from your HVAC equipment.

Running at top speed all the time is stressful on a heating unit. By allowing you to lower fan speeds in most situations, you’re able to extend the life of your system. You also have lower risks for the need for repairs.
