Always Hire A Professional For Furnace Installation

As a small business owner in Toronto and the GTA, I sincerely recommend hiring a professional to handle any HVAC installation. Late last year I was in a bit of a situation at my office. The heat was never working properly in the winter, but always seemed to get the job done regardless. Just before the holiday break, our furnace gave out completely. We needed furnace installation services fast.

With the holidays only a week and a half away, my upstairs tenant in the building we share recommended his brother-in-law to take a look. It sounded like a good idea at the time, so we gave him a call – assuming this was a furnace installation or HVAC expert. He was not.

Can I Void The Warranty If I Handle The Furnace Installation?

After taking a look and claiming to have fixed the issue, the furnace was producing warm air. The final day before the break I did a walkthrough and noticed the furnace had died. Long story short, I contacted a professional. They weren’t able to come until after the New Year.

Luckily, I saw a Furnace Pro Inc van in my neighbourhood and approached them in person. The technician was nice enough and even took a few minutes to give me a second opinion. He said that the “earlier repairs” weren’t bad enough to void my warranty, but that has happened when dealing with a novice furnace installer.

Case Study: Our Old Furnace

Billy and Jean were sitting in their Toronto home one cold winter weekend last year and all of a sudden they felt a chill. Thinking nothing of it they grabbed a blanket and cuddled up, but the chill only got worse and before they knew it they could see their breath right in their living room. It quickly became obvious that something was wrong with their furnace.

Billy fiddled with the thermostat, but it changed nothing. He went downstairs to “check” the furnace, but he knew he wasn’t an HVAC technician and yelled upstairs to Jean, “our old furnace is just finished I think”.

This isn’t uncommon. They had their furnace since they moved into their renovated Toronto home 15 years ago and haven’t changed it since. Their next step was a smart one, they called Furnace Pro Inc. They knew that it wouldn’t be long before they were dealing with frozen pipes and since they used Furnace Pro Inc for annual maintenance appointments, they knew a Furnace Pro Inc HVAC technician would be at their home to help in no time.

When we arrived we could see that Billy and Jean were cold and that they needed a new furnace. We got on it quickly and by the end of that Saturday they had a new furnace installed in their home.

Overall, Billy and Jean made the right choice knowing that Furnace Pro Inc provides 24/7 emergency services year round, even on the coldest days of winter. We know you don’t want to deal with frozen pipes, which can lead to additional costs and renovations if water ruins your home’s building materials.

If you find yourself in a situation like Billy and Jean worrying about “our old furnace” give us a call, no matter what time of day it is or even if it’s a weekend or a holiday. We’re available all the time to help out. Contact us at 647-547-6094.

When Should I Replace My Furnace?

Yes, it’s not winter time yet, but summer is coming to an end and in the near future you will need to switch from using your air conditioner to using your furnace. Your furnace will have to keep you and your family warm all winter, but there’s one thing you may be asking yourself. When should I replace my furnace?

Answers: When Should I Replace My Furnace?

How did your furnace perform last winter?

This is when you should evaluate how well your furnace worked last spring or winter. If i broke down, produced hot air, consumed a lot more energy than usual or didn’t run well in general then you may need to have it evaluated by a professional for replacement.

Have you performed furnace maintenance lately?

Lots of people forget to take care of annual furnace maintenance or they don’t see value in it. These aren’t good choices as they can lead to having to make expensive repairs and even replace your furnace sooner than you’d like to. Lack of maintenance can also drastically affect the performance of your furnace. Quick tips: change your filter and clear out your stuff from around the vents.

Factor in whether you’ve performed maintenance regularly or not to whether your furnace needs a repair or replacement. If you haven’t performed maintenance lately, that may be all that’s needed to get your furnace back to working at full capacity again.

How old is your furnace?

Clearly the age of your furnace is one of the main factors in whether it needs replacing or not. Better brand and models will certainly last longer than others, but a furnace that is routinely maintained will last longer than it would otherwise. So understanding how strict your maintenance regimen was is part of the equation. Typically, a furnace starts to see decreased efficiency and starts to break down more often after 12 years of use, and you should consider replacing it between 16 and 20 years.

before calling for furnace repair

Before Calling For Furnace Repair…

Furnace season is almost here. Most of us didn’t take the time this summer to check that our furnace is operating properly because it was nice and warm out, and of course we have all been very busy having fun. Well, the fun is slowly coming to an end with September almost here and school upon us. You may find that your furnace isn’t working as well as it should, but before calling for furnace repair here’s what you need to know.

Don’t worry, not all furnace repairs require a full furnace replacement, but again before calling for furnace repair…

Here are the things you should check before calling for furnace repair

The Power

One of the most common issues is that there is no heat coming through the vents in your house at all. This might mean that a circuit breaker has been tripped, which is one of the most common reasons a furnace isn’t working. If this is something that happens often, then you might need to call an electrician to evaluate if you have the right type of circuit breaker for your furnace. The last thing you want is for your furnace to draw more power than your electrical system can handle.

The Outdoor Air Intake

One thing to be sure to check before calling for furnace repair is the outdoor air intake. If this is blocked with leaves or snow your furnace might not be able to draw enough air into the system, which can really inhibit how well it works. This will also negatively affect the efficiency of your furnace, which will also cost you money on your monthly energy bills.

The Thermostat

If your furnace won’t turn on you may just need to change the battery in your thermostat, if it isn’t hard wired to your home. A weak battery may not be able to send the signal from the thermostat to the furnace to tell it to turn on, which may lead you to believe your furnace needs repairs.

The Furnace Filter

If your furnace is running, but there’s no hot air and old clogged filter might be the culprit. A really dirty filter will affect how well your furnace works and also negatively affect the efficiency of your furnace. You will also experience much more wear and tear than usual.

Overall, if your furnace isn’t working well and you’ve checked all these things then you should call Furnace Pro Inc for furnace repairs or furnace maintenance. Contact us for a free estimate or more information: 647-547-6094.
