Furnace Repair Service in Oakville

Air Makers has employees with various skill sets that work for simple and complicated furnace repairs. We can repair all types of heat pumps, furnaces, and cooling systems. Our diverse team can also install and repair new heating units, boilers, air conditioners in the attic, and ductless air conditioners in your home. We also have expertise with air handlers that use electric heaters and those that use hot water.

Although the furnaces we have in our inventory are very efficient, we can still show you how to increase the efficiency as we repair yours. Whether you have a single-stage or multi-stage furnace or a direct vent or oil furnace, our repairs will return it to its original condition.

We will still serve you even if you have multiple systems that should be connected. For instance, you can call us if you need help connecting the in-floor heating and plumbing systems to the boiler. We can also help you if your humidifier or furnace filter is old or dirty.

 

How furnace works?

Furnaces are made with several components that serve different purposes but work together to make the unit whole. You need to understand the role of those components to know how an entire furnace unit works. With that information, you will be able to make all the right decisions regarding the functionality of the furnace and take the proper measures to solve available problems.

The main components you need to know about are:

 Thermostat: You won’t be able to measure the temperature in your home without a thermostat. This component usually has a gauge that you manipulate to get the cool or hot temperature you want. It also enables you to turn the furnace on or off.

Burner: When the thermostat signals the furnace about the temperature change, fuel travels to the burners which are then ignited. The burners will produce the heat that will eventually warm up the room.

Heat exchanger: Flames from the burners reach the heat exchanger and heat it. The heat will remain around the exchanger until the blower starts working.

Blower motor and ductwork: Every house has a ductwork system that helps with heating and cooling. When the blower disperses the warm air from the heat exchanger, the air travels through the air ducts to the rest of the house. Cool air from the air ducts can also be sucked into the furnace and warmed on the heat exchanger before being pushed back out and circulated.

A furnace isn’t just for heating during winter; you can also use it with your air conditioning system in summer. Because of the all-around functionality, you need to schedule regular maintenance by professionals. That is the only way to keep the unit in perfect working condition and save money by avoiding expensive repairs. The maintenance will ensure your home stays comfortable, whether it’s hot or cold. Contact us if you have questions or need help upgrading or repairing your heating system

 

Common problems with your furnace, which can be repaired

Leaking Water

Most modern furnaces are built to stay on for longer while maintaining the same amount of efficiency. Such furnaces use combustion gases to provide the extra heat, which often leads to cooling and condensation of the gases. The water that condenses will collect on the floor drain, and in most cases, it doesn’t present a problem. However, in some cases, that water could start leaking.
If you have a modern furnace that is leaking, chances are it is due to condensation. Some of the solutions you can try are:

  • Making sure the drain is not clogged. Clear off any debris you find.
  • Checking the functionality of the condensation line.
  • Checking whether there is a condensate pump and that it is connected to the furnace properly.

If you have leaking water in a traditional furnace, it could have an ill-fitting exhaust or flue pipe. Get it changed.

Furnace does not turn on

There are several components connected to how furnaces ignite. Therefore, the failure of a furnace to turn on could mean that one of them isn’t working properly.

In most cases, failing to tune the thermostat to the right temperature can result in failed ignition. Always ensure its temperature is higher than the temperature in the room. You should also check if the furnace is displaying an error code and if the fan is working properly.

Another component that could lead to failed ignition is the gas line. If enough gas doesn’t flow through, the furnace won’t turn on. Turning off the furnace switch accidentally could be another reason. Make sure it is on before attempting to ignite the furnace.

Filters and pilot light are other components that could be keeping your furnace from heating up. The filter should be clean, and the pilot light should produce a clicking sound when turned on.

Furnace does not produce enough heat

If the furnace burners are turning on and the heat isn’t reaching the room, your blower could be the problem. Alternatively, the registers could be broken, which could be preventing the warm air from reaching the air ducts.

Make sure the heat registers are not closed, and the thermostat is in the right setting. The fan should be on AUTO, and the thermostat should be on the HEAT setting. Make sure the thermostat temperature is also higher than what you have in the room.

Lack of power supply is another reason why your furnace may not be working. Check all the power-related elements such as circuit breakers, fuses, and batteries to ensure they are in good condition. Once you’re done with all the above, press the reset button. If you’re not sure about what these components look like, call us, and our technicians will be there.

 

Problems with your thermostat

Your thermostat may not be working because it is off. Check the position of the thermostat and make sure it has the right temperature settings, depending on whether you want to heat or cool the room. A well-functioning thermostat usually has a clicking sound. Listen for the sound as you adjust it. If you don’t hear anything, the thermostat may not be communicating with the furnace.

Sometimes a thermostat may not function even after repair, which means replacing it will be the better option. Let a professional make the right diagnosis and suggest the right action.

We don’t recommend taking the thermostat apart yourself. If you can’t determine the problem, reach out to Air Makers. We will do our best to make your home comfortable as soon as possible.

Heating Cycling Problems

A good furnace will allow you to set the heating cycles you prefer. Some can even stay on for 24 hours all through the year. If you notice a break-in cycle, part of your furnace could be damaged. One of those parts is the filter. Make sure it is not clogged, and it is still new. If you cleaned or replaced the filter recently, but the furnace is still burning in incomplete cycles, call us.

Our experts will determine the root cause of the problem and minimize the damage. We will also try our best to keep the problem from recurring. Our repair services are usually aimed at making sure you get consistent heating and cooling from your furnace.

Unusual Noise

A furnace should never be too loud to cause you discomfort. The sound should also be consistent throughout the time it remains on. The slightest difference in sound emission can be a sign of trouble. Some of the reasons for the unusual noise can be clogged burners, blocked airflows, or any other mechanical breakdown. For issues related to airflow insulation, the ductwork will be enough to stop the noise. For a noise that originates from the furnace directly, repositioning the pilot light correctly will solve it. If these two fail, try lubricating the blower motor.

Seeking the help of a professional is another good alternative. We will troubleshoot the problem as quickly as possible and get your furnace working without noise pollution.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are some of the reasons to replace a furnace?

Lack of a warranty

If you have had the furnace for at least 10 years and it has been breaking down frequently, it may be time to replace it. After that duration, the chances are that you are no longer using the warranty, which means you’re paying for those repairs out of pocket. The costs will only keep increasing if you don’t replace the furnace.

Red tag

Another good reason for replacement is a red tag. Eventually, the technicians you call to repair the furnace will have to deem it unsafe by giving it a red-tagging it. If you get a Type A red tag, your heating unit will no longer be approved to function. The technician will explain to you why it is unsafe before turning off its gas line.

Although this situation is always serious, you can still get a second opinion, preferably from a different company. Some technicians have been known to red-tag heating systems unjustly to increase their sales. Find out for sure if your system can no longer serve you for a few more years before spending money on a new one.

You have to remember that seeking a second opinion for the red tag can still land you in trouble if you are not compliant with some of the gas codes in Oakville. Your best option is to always ensure you are compliant and maintain the heating system regularly to avoid needing regular repairs. If you suspect the system isn’t up to code, replacing it without a second opinion will be better.

It’s impossible to predict when these issues may arise. If your furnace breaks down or you get red-tagged in winter, you will need an alternative heating source urgently. A wood stove may be the perfect solution, especially if you have one that is efficient and safe. Alternatively, you can call Air Makers, and we will try to give you immediate assistance.

We recommend that you research the suitable measures you can take to keep your furnace from breaking down in winter. Find reputable contractors near you as well to ensure you get help as soon as you need it.

Lifespan

The quality of your furnace will deteriorate with time. Most furnaces have a lifespan ranging between 15 years to 25 years. As your unit nears the 10-year mark, it will not function as well as it did when it was new. You may consider replacing it with a new one for a more stress-free experience.

High fuel costs

Whether your furnace uses gas, oil, or electricity, it shouldn’t increase your energy bills too much. A furnace that loses its efficiency will only make your life unbearable if you don’t replace it.

If you live in the GTA area and you need help determining if it’s the right time to replace your furnace, we are here for you. We still prefer that you become knowledgeable about the furnace to avoid incurring a lot of expenses, but we won’t turn you away if you contact us.

  • Is natural gas the best fuel?

Natural gas prices have dropped tremendously in the GTA area, making gas furnaces the most preferred types. Since April 2006, there has been a consistent drop in gas prices, with the cost being as low as 9c per cubic meter.

The decline also has gas companies competing for monopolies, which is good for residents as it ensures they get the commodity easily. Distributing companies are making sure residents get gas meters as well, which makes it easy to use a gas furnace. These are some of the reasons why most people are now turning from electric furnaces to gas furnaces. Other incentives attached to the use of gas fuel are also attractive to homeowners to make that change.

You can also take advantage of the low prices, free installations, and gift cards if you are thinking about making the change to natural gas fuel. You will be able to reduce your bills as well.

Please note that having a gas furnace doesn’t mean you won’t use electricity. Most of the units use electricity on their blower motors and forced-air distribution. Even so, the consumption should still be minimal.

  • What furnace size should I get?

The right furnace size should have enough heat output capacity to warm up the size of the room you want to put it in. The output is usually expressed as BTU, and it differs in each furnace. You can check out our furnace and air conditioning sizes guide page for more information on the subject.

  • What are some of the important features I should focus on when comparing furnace models?

Apart from the heat output, you need to look at the cost of purchasing and running the model. Running costs refer to what you pay for fuel and other services like maintenance and repair.

Another feature to consider is the payback duration. Over time, the investment should bring you great returns for your investment. Typically, furnaces that can bring back your investment within 5 years are considered good choices.

For instance, if you have two furnace options, one costing $2400 and the other $2000, the first furnace will be better for you, assuming you can save $150 every year. It will have a payback period that is less than three years. On the other hand, if your savings will only be $50 per year, the $2,000 furnace will be the better option. Based on this, you need to compare your savings with the initial price and subsequent costs to determine the payback period and the best furnace model.

The level of comfort the furnace will give you is another important factor to consider. It should be economical but still highly functional enough to get you the level of coziness you want. Calculating the operational costs can help you figure out the economic benefits of the furnace.

Additional features to check are the rated AFUE, blower and inducer motors, and potential rebates of the furnace.

You should also pay attention to the heating stages of the furnace. Find out if product and labour warranties are being offered. All these will help you figure out if the furnace you’re interested in buying is a good choice.

Remember, we are always available to answer your questions and help you with selection.

  • How much will it cost me to install a new furnace?

Different installers will charge you different rates depending on the type of furnace and other factors like location. Unfortunately, we can’t disclose our rates online because of our agreement with Lennox and Carrier companies. However, you can call us for a free and no-obligate estimate.

  • What is AFUE?

Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency refers to the rating of the furnace in terms of energy efficiency. The term is mostly used with gas furnaces, and the efficiency measurements usually range between 0% to 100%. The average AFUE rating for furnaces in GTA is 94%, which is an increase from 92% that it was before.

The AFUE rating usually decreases with time. The longer the furnace is in use, the lower the efficiency gets. That is why most furnaces that have been around for over 20 years have between 60% to 70% ratings, while brand new ones have between 94% to 98%.

You can use the information on the sticker on the furnace to calculate the rating. Divide the input power with the output power to get the rating. The sticker will be on the inside of the furnace.

  • What do Heating Stages mean?

Most furnaces in Toronto have single-stage heating, but you can still find two-stage and three-stage furnaces if you want them. The main difference between them is usually in how gas flows into the burners. Multi-stage furnaces have gas valves that regulate the flow of gas into the heat exchange.

When you turn the furnace on and set the preferred temperature on the thermostat, natural gas will first flow to the lower heating stage. In case the signal of the operation doesn’t reach the setpoint of the thermostat, the gas valve will open fully to increase the flow of gas, which will increase the heat produced. This happens in two-stage and three-stage furnaces, with the latter having three setting options.

Multiple heating stages can help you control the temperature easily. You will be able to control how the heat from the furnace affects the room temperature, which will increase your comfortability. The stages also enable silent operation of the furnace because of the reduced temperature changes.

Contrary to popular belief that multiple heating stages in a furnace increase energy consumption levels, they don’t. You will use the same amount of energy that a single-furnace uses, even if you have a two-stage or three-stage furnace.

  • How many types of blower motors do I need in Toronto? 

Blowers are mostly divided into three main categories, namely:

  • Single-speed blowers

Also known as PSC blowers, they use the electricity in the AC form and don’t change the frequency. These motors are popular in most heating systems because they are more efficient. On the downside, they tend to be loud and may not be very easy to control.

  • Multi-speed motors

These are also known as ECM X13 motors, and they convert the AC power to DC power, which is more efficient and has a low consumption rate. These motors also have multiple speed settings and are quieter than single-speed blower motors. Furnaces that have these motors also produce lower heating at various speed stages.

  • Variable-speed motors

Although the ECM motors are sometimes referred to as variable motors, their variability isn’t true. The ECM true variable-speed motors are available if you want more speed settings with slight increment capabilities.

Multi-speed and variable-speed blower motors can give you more savings than single-speed bower motors. You can also buy inducer motors, which can redirect flue gas from inside the house, resulting in a cleaner operation.

  • Are warranties important?

Yes. Buying a product with a warranty attached can put your mind at ease.

Most companies offer warranties of up to 10 years, but you can also get longer ones. You can also get a manufacturer’s warranty for the furnace and a service warranty for the labour provided during repairs or installations. The labour warranty comes from the service provider and not the furnace manufacturer, so it tends to be shorter.

You have to remember that you will have to take good care of the furnace if you want to enjoy the warranties. In most cases, they become null and void if the furnace isn’t maintained regularly or if services like installations and repairs are done by non-professionals.

It also helps to know where the warranty is coming from. Even though manufacturers are usually credible, some service providers may offer long warranties but charge hidden fees.

Some furnace brands also offer warranties for the essential components of a furnace. For instance, you can find a heat exchanger warranty to help with replacements.

When you buy from Air Makers, you can expect a 10-year warranty for parts, lifetime warranties from manufactures on specific products, and 10-year labour warranties. After two years with the warranty, you will have to pay annual fees for maintenance and check-up of the surface.

  • What rebates can I enroll in?

Ontario Power Authority or OPA rebate, which is offered by any HVAC contractor that is a member of HRAI in the region, is the common one currently available. The rebate offers $250 if you install a high-efficiency furnace that has an ECM motor.

  • What are the safety standards of fire furnaces?

These types of furnaces are very safe. Most models usually have an automatic shut-down feature that turns off the furnace if there is no flame. The furnaces also undergo thorough testing before being released into the market to confirm their safety standards. You can also enhance your safety by having a fire extinguisher, even though the chances of you ever needing it are very minimal.

  • Is there a safe way to clean my furnace?

Cleaning a furnace is necessary at least once every year. The first safety measure is turning off the furnace completely before starting the cleaning process. You can clean all the parts systematically before vacuuming the logs.

Be gentle when handling the interior parts of the furnace and get a special cleaner for the glass.

Never use regular glass cleaners or any other harsh cleaning products on the furnace. Most of the cleaning products can react with the carbon deposits that settle on the furnace, which can damage the unit or put you at risk. If you don’t have products you trust, use a moist piece of cloth to wipe off the furnace.

  • Can I still use a damaged furnace?

You can continue using the furnace as long as there is proper ventilation and it is producing enough heat at the normal fuel consumption rate. However, you shouldn’t leave it on the whole night, and you should be ready for further damage.

Consult us if you think the furnace may not be safe to use. Our experts will help you determine the right course of action.
