Furnace FAQs

How does my furnace heat my home?

A furnace keeps your home warm by igniting fuel in a combustion chamber that heats up heat exchanger coils. When air is drawn across the coils it is warmed up and then delivered throughout the home via the ductwork.

What is the difference between a boiler and a furnace?

While a boiler heats up liquid that is distributed through your home via radiators, radiant heating, and fan coils, a furnace heats up air that is distributed through your home through the ductwork.

How can I save money on my home heating bills?

The easiest way to reduce your heating bills is by using less energy. You can ask a professional to conduct an energy audit on your home to help identify opportunities to conserve energy, and you may even qualify for a grant to help cover the costs. In the meantime, here are four simple steps you can take immediately to conserve energy and save money:

  • Upgrade your old furnace to a modern high efficiency condensing furnace and reduce the amount of energy it takes to heat your home
  • Install a programmable thermostat and take control of your energy use, whether you are at home or away
  • Seal your windows and fix any cracks to reduce heat loss
  • Invest in additional insulation and new windows

What are the benefits of a high efficiency furnace?

A high efficiency furnace lets you enjoy a warm home, without wasting energy. Today’s high efficiency furnaces are 92% – 98% efficient and use smart technology so you are in total control of your energy consumption any time of the day or night.

Why should I invest in a whole home humidifier?

A whole home humidifier ensures that the humidity levels in your home remain consistent, regardless of the season. They also contribute to healthy air throughout your home, help conserve energy, and may even increase the resale value of your house.

How can I keep my furnace running smoothly?

It’s always a good idea to book an annual furnace inspection, cleaning, and tune-up. While opening your furnace should always be left to a professional, there are a few things that any homeowner can do to maintain their home heating system:

  • Clean or change your furnace filter according to the recommendations of your equipment manufacturer, usually every three months.
  • Ensure that the intake vents and outside exhaust vents are clean and clear.
  • Declutter the area around your furnace.
  • Keep your home’s heating grills and radiators dust-free.

It’s time for a new furnace. Should I rent or buy?
