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 Novel Care. They knew that it wouldn’t be long before they were dealing with frozen pipes and since they used Novel Care for annual maintenance appointments, they knew a Novel Care 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 Novel Care 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.

Imagine waking up on a cold night to find that no matter how much you fiddle with the thermostat, nothing happens. There’s no heat! It’s good to know there is someone you can call for emergency furnace repair.

Furnace Giving You The Cold Shoulder?

As temperatures drop all winter long, your furnace needs to work a bit harder to keep you and your loved ones at a comfortable temperature. Even with all the awareness out there for energy-efficient homes, many older homes in Toronto and the GTA just haven’t been upgraded to keep your heat indoors. This can cost you a bit more on your bill, but also puts extra strain on your furnace.

As the furnace works harder and longer, the wear and tear can sometimes be too much. That’s where our emergency furnace repair service comes in. We’ve dealt with countless calls at all hours of the day and we respond quickly. But there are things you can do to avoid making the call for emergency furnace repair.

Taking care of your furnace

  • Regular furnace maintenance
  • Turn down your thermostat

There are a couple of ways to help keep your furnace ready for anything winter throws at you. The most obvious way is to let a professional furnace maintenance expert take a look at your furnace at least once a year. They will be able to diagnose any problems and help you prepare for any future repairs or replacements.

While annual furnace maintenance may not be possible for everyone, you could always just keep an eye on your thermostat too. Turning it down a couple of degrees can not only help with heating bills, but also prevent a bit of wear and tear on your furnace. Either of these can help reduce the risk of needing to call for emergency furnace repair in the middle of winter.

Know Your Emergency Furnace Repair Options

Emergency Furnace Services In Toronto

Winter is coming and if you have an old furnace that might be near the end of its life you might need emergency furnace services this winter. Furnaces are machines and just like other machines they break down from time to time, especially as they get older.

When You Need Emergency Furnace Services

Let’s be honest, there’s never a good time for your furnace to break down. It typically happens when the load on your furnace is at its highest. When the dead cold of winter hits and your furnace has been running for days to keep you and your family warm it might run into some problems. It’s difficult to predict what will break on an older furnace, but you can always count on emergency furnace services to help.

You might think emergency furnace services aren’t necessary. Your furnace breaking down might not seem like an emergency because you can just put on an extra blanket and wait until the next available appointment. The problem with that thinking is there are numerous things that can go wrong as your home gets colder and your furnace operates with malfunctioning parts.

If your house gets too cold there is a big risk of your pipes freezing and bursting, which can lead to expensive repairs and water damage. If your furnace is still running but isn’t working very well and needs repairs you might be doing additional damage by letting it operate. When you realize your furnace needs repairing it’s important to turn it off instead of allowing it to run. Some components can be damaged as other components break, so turning it off is the best way to proceed.

A few blankets and winter coats might work in the short-term, but it’s important to keep your home warm as well as your family.
