Common furnace questions

Whether you choose a furnace or boiler system, or decide to rent or buy, we’ll help you make the decision that is best for your home and budget.

How does a furnace produce heat?

A boiler warms up a liquid – usually water or glycol – which is pumped to your home’s radiators.

How can I reduce my residential heating bills?

Using less energy to keep your home warm is the easiest way to save money on your heating bills. Here are tips to help you conserve energy:

  • Upgrade to a high efficiency condensing furnace, which will use less energy without compromising your comfort.
  • Install a programmable thermostat, which will allow you to monitor and take control of your energy use whether you are at home or away.
  • Make sure your windows are properly sealed and any cracks in your home are repaired to avoid heat loss.
  • Replace old windows if necessary.
  • Hire a professional to conduct an energy audit to help identify opportunities to save energy. There may be grants available to help cover the costs.

How efficient is a high efficiency furnace?

Today’s high efficiency furnaces have an AFUE rating between 92%-98%. The use of smart technology allows for maximum energy efficiency and allows you to monitor and control your energy consumption.

What does a whole home humidifier do?

A whole home humidifier keeps the humidity levels in your home stable, regardless of the season outside. This helps to create healthy air inside your home and may reduce your energy use by helping your heating system run more efficiently. A whole home humidifier may be a smart investment in your health and in the value of your home.

What does a whole home humidifier do?

The Canadian climate has four distinct seasons. A whole home humidifier maintains stable humidity levels in your home, regardless of what the weather is outside. This promotes healthy air throughout your house and may help to conserve energy. For these reasons, a whole home humidifier may be a wise investment in your health and in the value of your home.

How can I maintain my furnace between services?

Only a trained professional should open and service your furnace unit. But here are four things any homeowner can do to keep their furnace working efficiently:

  • Change or clean your furnace filter every three months, or according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  • Dust your heating grills and radiators, and keep them clear.
  • Keep your outside exhaust vents clear of snow, slush, and other debris.
  • Keep the area around your furnace clear.

Should I buy or rent my new furnace?

Choosing a new furnace is a big decision.

If you buy your furnace, there will be an upfront cost and you will be responsible for any maintenance and repair (beyond the warranty period). But owning your furnace may add value to your home, and you can protect yourself from unexpected repair bills through a comprehensive Protection Plan.

If you rent your furnace, you’ll be responsible for one, low monthly rental fee. We’ll look after most repairs and maintenance. This option may reduce surprises and can help you with your monthly household budgeting.

Should I upgrade my AC when I get a new furnace?

Systems designed to work together are more energy efficient and may help you save on your energy bills. That’s why you may have heard that it’s a good idea to upgrade your AC when you install a new furnace.

Your 5-point Furnace Checklist

Reliance™ is always happy to send one of our technicians to your home to check your furnace. But sometimes the fix is as easy as flipping a switch. To help you avoid the hassle and expense of an unnecessary visit, here are 5 things to check before you give us a call:

Check your thermostat setting

It’s easy to forget to change your thermostat setting to ‘heat’ when winter hits. Furthermore, sometimes the setting is changed by accident and no one notices until you feel the chill in the air. If your home lacks heat, it’s always a good idea to check your thermostat setting – just in case.

Check your furnace switch

Many homeowners don’t realize that their furnace has a disconnect switch. Located on the side of the unit or on a nearby wall, this safety feature is designed to disconnect the power. Sometimes this switch gets turned off by mistake. If your furnace unit doesn’t seem to be working, check the switch

Check your circuit breaker

Power to your home heating system is also controlled through your home’s breaker panel. Sometimes the furnace circuit breaker shuts off. If your furnace doesn’t seem to be working, check that the circuit breaker is in the right position.

Check your furnace vents

Did you know that your furnace may not work properly if the air vents leading to the exterior of your home are blocked? If your home isn’t being kept warm as usual, take a look to see if you need to clear snow, slush, or other debris from around your furnace vent, or if there’s a small animal nesting inside. A full vent inspection, however, should be left to a professional.

Check your furnace filter

Do you remember the last time you cleaned or changed your furnace filter? Most filters should be changed every three months, or according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. If not, the efficiency of your furnace may be affected. Your Reliance™ furnace technician can recommend which filter is right for your unit and can show you how to make the switch if you’re unsure what to do.
