The blower motor is the heart of your heating system. It forces air through your ductwork to warm your home, bringing warm air to all parts of your house. It works hard all year, blowing cool air in the summer months.
People rarely plan to upgrade their blower motor, but it is actually quite similar to changing out your standard light bulbs with LED ones. The only difference that it adds comfort and air quality in addition to energy savings.
Regular vs High-Performance Blower Motors
Regular blower motors have one speed. They turn on when the thermostat signals the house is too warm. They suddenly turn off when it reaches the set temperature. The transition can be loud, and there is no airflow unless the thermostat calls for a temperature change.
In contrast, high-performance blowers keep air moving constantly while using significantly less energy. Increased air flow reduces cold spots in your home and boosts the performance humidifiers and air purifiers. And the almost silent motor means you may not even be able to hear your system is running all of the time.
of a High Performance Blower
Running your fan constantly reduces hot and cold spots in your home and gives you better temperature control.
Constant fan operation means your filtration system and humidifier work around the clock to give you cleaner, fresher air.
Lower Electric Bills
High-Performance Motors can use up to 80% less electricity than your standard furnace blower. This will increase the SEER efficiency rating of your system up to ½ or 1 SEER point.
Very, Very Quiet
Your new motor will ramp up slowly and quietly on startup and shutdown. You may not even be able to tell that it's running at all.
