    Are you looking for a more efficient way to run your heating and air conditioning system, without an adverse impact on your utility bill? A variable speed thermostat can help keep your home at a consistent temperature, without the drastic side effects that can come with your monthly bill. While variable speed units may cost more upfront, their energy efficiency will make up it as compared to that of standard equipment; this leads to significant savings in the long term.

    What Is Variable Speed Technology?

    "Variable speed technology" just means the ability of your heat pump or furnace to vary its operating speed automatically. Instead of always running at full capacity like standard equipment, variable speed equipment assesses the conditions of the home to determine if the total capacity is needed.

    Your HVAC system doesn’t need to run at 100% capacity outside of the beginning of summer or winter. Variable speed units bring the usage down to 40%, as they can recognize the temperature of the home as compared to the temperature outside to determine if additional heating or cooling is needed.
