Why Do Air Conditioners and Furnaces Have Variable Speeds?

Trane ACA growing number of business and homeowners are choosing AC units and furnaces with variable speeds and it’s not hard to see why. Variable speeds offer a number of important benefits that you won’t want to miss out on.


Choosing an HVAC unit with variable speed settings makes it possible for you to choose the temperature that is just right for you personally. Instead of running a unit at full blast all the time, you can adjust the settings for days that are neither blazing hot nor freezing cold.

Energy Efficiency

Variable speed HVAC units are extremely energy efficient because they can be run at continually low speeds instead of going full blast, turning off when the room is at the right temperature and then turning back on again when the room gets too hot or too cold. Because HVAC units use a lot of power when switching on and off, homeowners who use a variable speed unit will typically have lower energy bills than those who stick with a single speed unit.

Lowering Humidity

Humidity not only makes a home uncomfortable but also affects the structural integrity of the house. Mold growth is a common yet serious problem that can arise when there is too much moisture in the air. If there is mold in the home, it can not only ruin walls and floors but also affect your health, causing allergy and breathing problems for you and your family. A variable speed HVAC unit makes it possible to run the HVAC for long periods of time on a low setting, keeping the air free from moisture throughout the hot summer months.
