Electronically Commutated Motors

Get up to $100 cash back

Retrofit your 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 your 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 your home, operate at lower speeds and can improve air quality. This results in a more comfortable, quieter and healthier living environment. Get up to $100 cash back when you switch to an ECM. Retrofitting your furnace fan is easy, and you can save up to $30 a year on heating costs.
