Among the complaints that homeowner’s have about typical forced air furnace operation, noisy operation seems to be one of the most common problems. From blower motors that sound like helicopter blades to burners that simulate an explosion, the noise level generated by your old furnace could be causing you and your family much discomfort. As your home comfort specialist, Four Seasons is always looking for a way to make your home more comfortable, and Lennox seems to have a solution for every heating and cooling problem that we come across. For those of you that have excessive furnace noise problems, you are in luck! Lennox’s SilentComfort technology solves this problem!
Solving Furnace Noise Problems
There are two main causes of excess noise from the furnace. The first culprit is the blower motor. Old one-speed blower motors are known to cause loud “whooshing” noises through the ducts, and the noise caused by the blower operating reverberates inside its housing in the furnace. The other major noise concern was caused by the ignition of the burners on older model furnaces. SilentComfort technology offers a solution to both of these problems. These include:
- Insulated Cabinet: By creating an innovative insulated cabinet inside the furnace, Lennox was able to drastically reduce the noise caused by the burners igniting and the blower motor operating.
- Step-up Motor: The blower motor that is installed in furnaces equipped with this technology has the ability to gradually increase its blowing capacity. This effectively eliminates the blasts of air that many experience at the beginning of every cycle.
- Variable Speeds: The blowers in these furnaces also are equipped with variable speed technology. This allows them to run at the lowest speed possible while still maintaining the desired level of comfort. The furnace will only kick into high gear when the weather calls for the added circulation of heat.
