Choosing the Right Furnace

How can we help you find the right furnace?

When you’re car shopping, you’re not likely to buy the very first model you see. You compare manufacturers, the car’s features, its price – and only then do you make your decision.

We follow a similarly diligent process when helping you choose the right home heating system. A qualified Home Comfort Advisor will take the time to consider a number of important factors, including:

  • The size and location of your home
  • The number of windows and doors of your home
  • Your budget, and financing preferences
  • The most generous energy rebates

One call connects you to furnace repairs and maintenance

From taking in an exhibit at the Artist’s Alcove and shopping the Mill Market to walking the scenic St. Mary’s River Waterfront and exploring fresh food and artisan crafts in the historic Canal District downtown, we’re proud to be a part of the Sault community.

Furnace breakdowns can be stressing, especially when they happen during one of Sault Ste. Marie’s frequent deep freezes. Between your discomfort and the risks like freezing pipes, you want to your service fast and efficient!

With a large network of technicians and service vehicles throughout the region, you can be confident that we’re ready to handle any home heating emergency. And there’s isn’t a furnace brand or model we haven’t serviced before.

If your furnace is broken or isn’t working the way it once did, give us a call. You can count on:

  • Clear, upfront and ‘no surprise’ pricing
  • Live telephone support 24/7/365 – you talk to a knowledgeable representative (instead of leaving messages on a machine!)
  • Professionally trained licensed technicians that live and work in a Sault Ste. Marie community
  • Savings of 10% on your repair bill if you have a Heating or Cooling Maintenance or Protection Plan with us

Furnace & HVAC tune-ups by licensed professionals

When winter and its cold temperatures hit, we all know that it’s important to have a reliable, efficiently running furnace. A regular tune-up can help.

Plus, a furnace not performing at peak levels may cost you more money to run than a well-maintained one will.

A tune-up from Reliance Sault Ste. Marie can help:

  • Keep your furnace working at its best. That way, you’re not paying more than you should on your utility bills.
  • Avoid a potential furnace breakdown in the future. Your technician will inspect major components to ensure they’re not nearing the end of their lifespans.
  • Extend the life of your furnace. Regular maintenance is an investment worth making for the longer term!

We’re not the only ones suggesting you get regular tune-ups. The majority of well-known furnace manufacturers recommend tune-ups to help ensure the best performance from their systems.

Don’t wait for the next cold or for your utility bills to spike – request your tune-up today.

Your combi boiler expert in the Soo

Not every company has the expertise with this type of home heating solution. Our in-house technicians can do everything from installing a new system to repairing and maintaining your current one.

Unfamiliar with combi boiler heating? These systems use hot water to heat instead of forced air as with a conventional furnace. Hot water (or steam) is distributed through a home’s radiators and baseboards, then is cycled back to the water boiler where it is heated again.

While not as popular as they were decades ago, boilers are making something of a comeback, especially with the increasing popularity of radiant in-floor heating. Plus, it’s an ideal heating system for heated driveways, hot tubs and heated pools.

Today’s energy-efficient furnaces can help cut your utility bills

According to Natural Resources Canada (2018), space heating can represent up to 63% of a home’s energy use.* That’s a big chunk of your utility bill.
But here’s the good news. An ENERGY STAR certified forced-air, gas-fueled furnace uses 6% less energy compared to a standard furnace model.*
And like any appliance, a new furnace tends to require repairs far less frequently than an older one.

We can help you maximize energy rebates and incentives

Our government and utility company wants all of us to use less energy in our homes and businesses. And to incent us to go with the most energy efficient heating systems, they provide sometimes generous energy rebates.
Our Home Comfort Advisors routinely work with homeowners to maximize their rebates. Savings typically range from hundreds of dollars to as much as $1500!
