Variable Speed Heating Explained

Bryant-Evolution-Extreme-Button.pngWith winter soon approaching here in Georgia, it's time for you to start thinking about your utility costs. You may be due for a heat pump replacement. If so, then consider investing a little more money up front for an energy star efficient heat pump that features variable speed heating. Such systems offer several advantages over traditional models:

Increased Comfort
On an average winter day, the two-stage heat pump operates at a lower heat setting and a slower speed. Other more basic models normally run at full blast and then stop abruptly when the thermostat setting is met. A two-stage heat pump is different because it maintains a constant flow of air which minimizes the cold spots that usually develop between the cycles of an older one-stage system. On colder days, the second stage on a two-stage heat pump is used to maintain comfort through the circulation of warmer air being generated at a higher speed.

Increased Energy Savings
The Bryant Preferred® 1-and 2-Stage heat pump delivers all-season flexibility for total home comfort, with an up to 17.5 SEER rating that provides warm-weather cooling. This operation during colder weather can be reversed for low-cost electric heat. The Bryant Evolution® System is a 5-stage heat pump that offers up to 19 SEER cooling and up to 11.5 HSPF heating plus 2-stage models for energy-saving comfort.

Reduced Noise
A two-stage and five-stage heating system isn’t as noisy because it usually runs at a lower speed. When it does run at full speed, a gradual transition eases the change in noise levels. The Bryant Evolution System runs as quiet as a vacuum with its AeroQuiet™ System design.

Better Filtration
Because the air typically moves more slowly through a two-stage system, the filter can more easily remove contaminants which will lead to healthier air.
