Retrofit your customer’s furnace with a highly efficient motor

Every furnace needs a fan motor to circulate air throughout a home – but not all motors work the same. Standard motors typically run at preset speeds, which uses more energy than needed and creates uneven temperatures. Electronically commutated motors (ECMs) adjust to the home’s heating and cooling needs while using up to 50 percent less energy than standard furnace fans. ECMs also deliver more consistent air to the home, operating at lower speeds and can improve air quality. This results in a more comfortable, quieter and healthier living environment.
