How furnace works?

Understanding how your home appliances work can help you prevent a lot of problems and find the right solutions to the existing ones. That is why we recommend that you try to understand the different components in your furnace and the role they play in the unit. The major components you should pay attention to are:

Thermostat

The thermostat informs you about the temperature in the room and helps you control the furnace. Every thermostat has a gauge that you can adjust to get the level of heating you want. Some thermostats are automatic and can be adjusted remotely, and others are not. Once the room temperature reaches the level you set, the thermostat will signal the furnace to turn off.

Burner 

The burner produces the flames to heat your room. The signal from a thermostat will result in fuel being sent to the burner to ignite it. Most furnaces have several burners that heat the heat exchanger to get the desired temperatures.

Heat exchanger

The heat exchange ensures the heat produced by the burner reaches your room as the furnace continues to operate. It also protects your home by making sure the dangerous gases produced during combustion don’t escape into the rooms with the help of a blower.

Blower 

The blower ensures the air that reaches the exchanger is properly circulated to reach the desired surfaces. The blower has a fan that can also ensure the air from the furnace is circulated through air ducts in the house.

Ductwork 

These will ensure warm or cold air reaches every section of the house.

Furnaces are usually built to function throughout the year. You can use it during winter to supplement heat or during summer when you need more cooling. To enjoy full-time functionality, you need to schedule maintenance regularly.

We are available to answer all your questions about the units that make up your furnace anytime. Call us and schedule a consultation to discuss your needs in detail.

 

Common problems with your furnace, which can be repaired

Leaking Water

Furnace manufacturers are making high-efficiency appliances that emit less poisonous gases to the environment and produce heat for longer. These furnaces burn combustion gases that are produced during heating for the prolonged effect and clean emissions. Because of their operation mode, they allow the gases to cool, condense, and collect on the drain. One of the common problems is the leaking of the collected water.

Your first solution should be to check the drain tubes for clogging. If there is debris preventing the passage of the water, cleaning it will stop the leaking. Another option is to check the condensation line for damages. The problem could also be due to the lack of a condensate pump. Check if the furnace has one.

Leaking problems can also occur in furnaces that don’t have high efficiency. In such cases, the flue pipe or exhaust pipes are usually the cause of the problem.

Furnace does not turn on

Several factors can keep your furnace from turning on.

Thermostat

If you don’t adjust the thermostat to the temperature you want, the furnace won’t produce enough heat. Make sure the thermostat reads at a higher temperature than what you currently have in the room. Confirm that the fan is working, and if not, look for an error message.

Gas line

The furnace should have enough gas supply for ignition. Make sure the valve is in the right position and is allowing gas into the furnace.

Switch

The furnace can’t function if the switch is off. Confirm that you didn’t turn it off accidentally.

Air filter

Air filters help in maintaining the quality of air in a room. They collect a lot of impurities and should be changed regularly. If left for long, they become clogged and can prevent the furnace from turning on.

Pilot light

This should click when you turn on the surface. If it doesn’t, then the furnace will not work.

Furnace does not produce enough heat

If your furnace is turning on but isn’t producing enough heat for the room, you need to check the heat registers first. The furnace will shut down if the registers are off, so you need to make sure they are on. You should also check the thermostat, especially if it’s an automatic one. Confirm that the heat setting is on instead of the cool one. The thermostat reading must be higher than the room temperature for the heat sensor to work.

The insufficient power supply is another factor that can prevent the production of enough heat. Check all the components related to power, such as circuit breakers, fuses, and batteries, to ensure they are not being blocked by debris or dust collected. Confirm that the power supply is on and reset the furnace, then turn it on again. Make sure the filter is also clean.

 

Problems with your thermostat

Most people usually change the thermostat settings and forget about them. Always check to ensure it is on before turning it to get the heat or cool setting you want. If you want to increase the heat, make the thermostat higher than the temperature in the room. Do the same for cooling. You should also listen to the clicking sounds in the thermostat as you adjust it. That is always another way of knowing that it is working as it should.

Call an expert if you don’t hear the clicks. The thermostat may need to be repaired or replaced depending on the level of damage. If you ignore it, you won’t get any heating from the furnace. We can handle your thermostat replacement or repair as an emergency to ensure you continue enjoying the efficiency of your furnace.

Heating Cycling Problems

Most furnaces are built to operate continuously every day. However, if you don’t replace or clean your filters regularly, the furnace won’t function as well as it should. That is why the filters are the first components you should check if your furnace keeps turning off prematurely. If they are clean and new, but the furnace still has incomplete cycles, check the motor and belts. These other components are usually more complicated and should be handled by professionals. Only furnace repair professionals will know how to fix the problems without damaging other parts of the furnace. Because of this, we recommend that you only check the filter and leave the rest of the diagnosis to furnace professionals. Contact our experts in Mississauga, and they will respond as soon as possible.

Unusual Noise

Try to familiarize yourself with the sounds that come from your furnace. That will allow you to identify changes in the noise, which will help with faster repairs. Since weird noises are usually the first signs of furnace problems, noticing the change will keep you safe.

The unusual noise can be because of clogged burners or any other insufficient problem. Clogged airflows can also cause funny noises. Some of the best remedies are insulating the ductwork and confirming the location of the pilot light. You can also check the blower motor to ensure it has enough lubrication.

If you try all these and the noise persists, reach out to the furnace experts near you. Don’t interfere with the other components to try to fix the noise problem. You may end up damaging the furnace more.

Furnace Installation, Furnace Repair & Furnace Maintenance

Our technicians have diverse skills that ensure all residents of Mississauga and the surrounding regions get all furnace-related services in one place. Apart from installations, we also handle maintenance and repairs of heating and cooling units. Our comprehension of how furnaces work and what it takes to make them more efficient will ensure you have a hassle-free experience. Our installation services are ideal for first-time installations as well as replacements. Whether you are moving to a new house with your furnace, or you have bought one for the first time, we will serve you diligently. Some of the ways we can help you are:

  • Getting the furnace.
  • Using the steps and methods recommended by manufacturers to ensure everything goes well.
  • Connecting all the electrical components correctly where applicable.
  • Double-checking the unit to ensure everything is connected correctly.
  • Testing the unit.

One of the most crucial maintenance procedures is cleaning the filter and changing it when necessary. We can also help you with regular inspections to prolong the lifespan of the furnace. However, the average longevity of furnaces is 20 years, which means you should consider getting a new one after that period.

Replacement is also a better option when the furnace starts breaking down frequently, leading to high repair costs. Additional signs for a replacement include:

  • A duration of at least 15 years.
  • Unusual noises when the furnace is on, especially if the noise persists even after repair.
  • Higher energy bills, which signify increased energy consumption.
  • Changes in the flames. A good furnace produces blue and not yellow flames.
  • Temperature changes in multiple rooms whenever the furnace is on.

Ignoring the signs above could result in toxic emissions from the furnace getting into your rooms and endangering your health. Call us if you are not sure about a replacement. We will inspect the furnace to give you the peace of mind you deserve.

Frequently asked questions

  • What are some of the reasons why I should consider replacing my furnace?

You can always replace your furnace because of various reasons, but the four main ones are:

1. The furnace is old

Consider the duration that your furnace has been in use. A good furnace is usually meant to last between 10 to 20 years. Once it goes beyond that, you will find yourself having frequent repairs, which can be very costly. If you monitor your furnace closely at this age, you will notice that its efficiency has also gone down, and also the frequency of maintenance and repairs has gone up. Instead of doing repairs all the time, it is advisable to have it replaced.

An old furnace in the house can also cost you comfort since you are not sure of its efficiency. Your safety is also at risk because they are prone to gas leaks which are not safe for inhalation.

2. Lower heating bills

Your fuel costs could be hitting a height that is way above the hydro and gas bills, unlike other homes around Mississauga. Typically, when a furnace starts to use less than the 80% annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE), it is time to have it replaced. It is recommended that the less fuel a furnace uses, the more it heats your home efficiently.

If you get a new furnace with an AFUE rating of 90-95%, you are less likely to have high heating bills. Based on this, buying a new furnace may be too costly after all. In the end, it will save you from high fuel costs. Considering your comfort and financial constraints, you can always shop around for a furnace within your budget and get the right heating system.

3. Safety

The heating system of your furnace could be unsafe for your use. In such instances, a technician can “red-tag” your furnace to indicate that it is unsafe for heating, resulting in the furnace getting shut down.

Always seek second or even third opinions from licensed gas technicians. Sometimes people use scare tactics to get sales, yet your furnace can serve you longer.

Despite this, there are legitimate red tags that you shouldn’t dismiss. If two technicians can prove the same, then it is only advisable to dispose of your current furnace and buy a new one.

If you experience this situation amid a cold season, there are options such as a fireplace and a wood stove that can get you through for some time. You will still need to contacting a heating and cooling contractor in Mississauga to help you buy one.

4. Comfort

You may have your furnace well-maintained and always running, but the heat is not sufficient for the whole home. Of course, the main purpose of a furnace is to heat the living space and provide the desired comfort. You can go through all the inspection processes and maintenance, but still, the results remain the same. In such a case, the only solution is to have it replaced and get value for your money.

  • Natural gas is Mississauga’s #1 choice for furnace fuel today.

For more than 10 years, the cost of natural gas has been low, making it affordable for most homeowners around the GTA area. Due to this, most homes with furnaces have switched to using natural gas as fuel. If you’re also interested in the switch, you can look at the historical natural gas rates page to see the trending costs of natural gas.

The current prices of natural gas have come along with a lot of incentives. Companies around Toronto have also been taking measures to provide residents with gas meters accompanied with incentives that make them irresistible.

There has been an influx of clients every day seeking to switch from other fueling methods to natural gas. Other factors such as cost-efficiency, lower energy bills, and the fact that it is clean also serve as additional incentives for the change. Free installation is another reason why you may want to change the furnace fuel.

It is also good to note that natural gas is not only limited to your furnace. You can use it to fuel other appliances around your home, although some appliances such as central home furnaces use electricity.

If you thought of changing the choice of fuel around your home, take this chance and apply for a natural gas meter to enjoy the incentives that come with it.

  • What is the right size furnace for my home?   

The size of your furnace should be determined by your living space and the amount of energy required to heat your home. You should avoid an oversized or undersized furnace for reasons such as overheating and underheating, respectively.

If you have an existing furnace that you are seeking to replace, you can still have another one in the same size or even a slightly bigger one, factoring in the amount of energy you need, which is calculated in BTU/HR. Please note that the size of the furnace you acquire should be enough to serve you during the coldest season of the year.

For more information regarding this, you can visit the pages where we discuss furnace heating and sizing in detail. Alternatively, you can contract the services of a licensed heating contractor near you. Just make sure you seek the services of a professional before you purchase and install a furnace.

  • What features should I look for when comparing high-end efficiency furnaces?

When looking for a furnace, find one that matches your needs in terms of the amount of heat you require, your budget, and comfort. When we say budget, it does not only refer to the cost of procuring and installing; it also refers to the fuel costs you will save every year. It also refers to the payback period since it is a long-term investment.

For example, if there are two furnaces on offer, with one going for $3,000 and the other for $3,500, you can only make a saving if you get the one with a lower cost. The one with a higher cost, which will give you a longer payback period, is better for a long-term investment.

Invest in a furnace that will give you returns in a minimum period of 5 years. Your goal should be to identify an economical furnace that matches your comfort.

If you are looking for such a furnace in Mississauga, you can use any of the factors below as determinants, depending on brands and models.

  • Operational and complete installation costs.
  • Rebates on the particular furnace and if you are eligible for them.
  • AFUE rating.
  • Blower and inducer motors on the furnace.

All factors above will help you come up with an economically rational decision. Don’t forget about functionality and comfort, even as you focus on economic benefits.

For functionality, other factors to consider are:

  • The type of blower motor.
  • The number of heating stages. You can choose between single-stage, two-stage, and three-stage heating furnaces.
  • Fuel consumption and AFUE rates.
  • Warranties and availability of parts.
  • What does AFUE mean, and why is it important?

The initials AFUE stand for Annual fuel utilization efficiency, which is a rating that shows the efficiency of your furnace. It compares the amount of fuel your furnace consumes against the heat produced, commonly referred to as input/output power.

AFUE rating usually ranges between 0-100%. The standard rating for good fuel equipment ranges between 80%-95%. The age, quality, and maintenance of the furnace are some of the main determinants of the AFUE for your furnace. Furnaces with over 20 years mainly have a lower rate – between 80% and 65%. As such, if your furnace has an AFUE rating of below 80%, understand that some of the energy from your equipment is going to waste, which also translates to high billings.

A furnace with a rating of 94% in Mississauga is considered highly efficient, whereas a furnace with over 20 years could record an AFUE of 65%. Notably, these numbers will most definitely decline as the years pass by.

Most furnaces come with a sticker that provides the numbers you can use to calculate your expected AFUE since this information is not usually publicly available.

If you live in the GTA and have a furnace that is 20 years, the chances are that the AFUE is very low. If it is 60%, around 40 percent of the fuel consumed goes to waste, and only the remaining 60 percent is used to heat your home. With such an AFUE, consider replacing your furnace with a new one that will have an efficiency of 98%.

  • What does the number of heating stages indicate, and why should I care?

You can always choose between single-stage and multi-stage furnaces. If you choose the former, you will have a furnace that operates with the gas flowing fully throughout.

If you choose the multi-stage heating option, you will get the two-stage, which starts with lower heating at around 60% fuel flowrate, or a three-stage heating furnace, which starts the same way but allows you to increase slowly until you get 100% flowrate. The multiple valve settings on a three-stage heating furnace are why it is called a modulating furnace. However, it should not be confused with the true modulating furnace, which usually has more than 40 settings and smaller incremental changes.

The multi-stage furnaces tend to provide better control during temperature fluctuations. They allow the furnace to turn off when the heat produced exceeds the setting you have on the thermostat. With the single-stage heating system, you will experience more temperature fluctuations that you may not easily control.

The different heating stages won’t affect how much energy you use. Both types of furnaces can still get you the heating efficiency you want, but the multi-stage heating appliances will achieve it within a shorter time than the single-stage ones.

  • How many different blower motors are used in furnaces available in Toronto?

PCS blowers: These motors use the AC form. Most modern furnaces have these because of their increased efficiency. They are estimated to have 30% more efficiency than other types of blowers. Their disadvantage is loud operations that can be uncomfortable for some.

ECM X13 blowers: The Electronically-Commuted Motors will convert the AC to DC first before transmission. Because of this, they usually have low power consumption rates than the PCS motors. They can also change the motor speed during the conversion. The X13 ECM has limited speed settings, but it still operates silently on lower heating.

True variable-speed ECM blowers: These have more speed settings that increase in small amounts. They are the most efficient and are mostly available in the infinity series by Carrier.

There is also the inducer blower motor type that is the most superior in terms of noise reduction and energy savings.

  • Should I insist on a warranty when buying or servicing a furnace?

Most warranties have at least 10 years, which shows that our products and services are the best. It’s always a good idea to explore all warranty choices to ensure you don’t pass up on the best offers. These programs are meant to reassure you that the products you’re investing in are worthy. Manufacturers usually show you that they believe in the quality of their products through their warranties. That is why brands like Carrier, Goodman, and Lennox have some of the longest ones, including for parts. Air Makers’ labour warranties usually range between 5 to 10 years.

Always read the contract carefully to enjoy the full extent of the warranty in question. Make sure you understand the clauses attached and the possible reasons that could cause it to nullify. Determining where the warranty is from is also crucial to ensure you’re being served by a credible company, especially if you’re buying the furnace from an installation and repair company.

  • What rebates can I get when I replace my furnace with a high-efficiency one in Toronto?

Currently, the manufacturer’s warranties are void, which means there are only two rebate programs you can rely on. One of them is the $250 rebate that you get if you replace your furnace with a highly efficient one that has an ECM motor. This is an Ontario Power Authority offered by any Toronto HVAC contractor that belongs to the HRA.

  • How can I safely clean my air furnace?

You should clean your furnace at least once a year, especially during its inspection. Turn it off before cleaning and use a clean damp cloth to wipe the inside.

Alternatively, you can gently brush or vacuum the logs one by one to remove the dust.

When it comes to the glass surfaces, get a special glass cleaner from our stores. They are specially created for this purpose. Be cautious when cleaning such surfaces as well, and avoid using any other glass cleaners. Most generic cleaners can react with the furnace deposits to cause the accumulation of carbon deposits.

  • Is it safe to use a fire furnace with underlying conditions?

The air around your living space will always be pure and fresh, even with the use of a fire-furnace because most are usually considered safe. All you have to do is ensure proper ventilation in the home and avoid leaving the furnace on throughout the night. If you feel a fire furnace can affect your condition, don’t be afraid to consult your doctor for guidance.
