For example, configuring ventilation is unique to each property. A furnace that uses 80% of its capacity is used in homes and businesses that cannot be vented to the outside. While furnaces that use 90% of their capacity can be vented to the outside to bring in the fresh air. It also requires the use of chimney liners.

An important note to all property owners is that the federal government requires any new furnace motors have a DC-powered variable speed motor that is energy efficient. This saves on energy use and saves the homeowner money on utility costs. There are two types of motors typically used either an X13 motor or a two variable speed motor. The X13 steps up as the heating or cooling are needed. The two variable speeds gradually goes up as the heating and cooling are needed and also gradually down when not. It can also be programmed to stay on.
