Frequently asked question
  • 4 Main Reasons Why You Want To Replace Your Furnace.

    Very often, there are 4 main reasons why you are looking to replace your existing furnace with a new furnace.

    1. Of course, the first reason is that your furnace has broken down and it is older than 10 years and/or out of warranty and a furnace repair is not justifiable with respect to its cost.

    2. Similarly, you may be facing a scenario where your home furnace has been “red-tagged” by a licensed gas fitter technician.

    In case of a ‘Type A’ Red Tag, the heating system is deemed unsafe and disapproved for further use, and the gas supply will be shut off at the gas meter outside or at the appliance from inside your home by the gas technician. If you are ever facing this situation, before finalizing a decision, it is always worth your time to get a second opinion, since there have always been reports of high pressure sales or rather scare tactics in an effort to make you believe that your heating system is unsafe – where in reality it could have had another several healthy years of its life ahead and a mere tune-up is all that would be needed, if that. Read our President’s Message and don’t “get burnt by furnace fraud”!

    And, of course, you can receive a legitimate Red Tag for a legitimately Ontario gas code non-compliant issue, but to proceed with repairs necessary to void the Red Tag, homeowner can sometimes find that his/her best and most feasible option would be to replace the existing system at once.

    Unfortunately, if any of the above scenarios occur in the midst of a cold winter and you don’t have heat in your home, your house starts to get colder by the minute and you will not have the time resource or the comfort to educate yourself and arrive at a fully informed decision with respect to the right investment on your home heating system. If you have a fireplace, a woodstove or any other means of a safe heat source, you might get by a little longer but sooner or later you are required to make a quick decision without having the luxury of thorough research in picking the most suitable Toronto Heating and Cooling contractor for you. Which is why we always recommend keeping on top of your home heating system, by staying ahead of the game and taking proactive measures in having your search and shopping around started and your decision made before the start of winter.

    3. And so the other reason to replace your furnace – which is basically a proactive measure – is that your furnace is old.

    The lifetime of heating system (depending on their quality, the quality of its installation and its maintenance) is anywhere between 15 to 25 years and by replacing it, you will avoid getting stuck in a ‘no heat’ situation when you will not have the luxury of time and comfort.

    4. Or that you just know your fuel costs are sky-rocketing. (most specifically your gas bills and partially hydro bills when it comes to the majority of our Toronto homes)

    Again, fortunately and very well for you, you have time on your side to shop around and buy and install the most suitable heaitng system by the right Toronto HVAC company.

    This page is for any homeowner living in the Greater Toronto Area looking to replace their existing central forced air heating system with a brand-new furnace, given any of the above reasons and more. Again if your heating system in not functioning at this time, you will most probably take some shortcuts in your search practice, but hopefully not.

  • Natural Gas Is Toronto's #1 Choice of Furnace Fuel Today!

    If you live in the Greater Toronto Area, you are most probably aware that the cost of natural gas has been at its ultimate low and today natural gas furnaces are most widely used amongst Torontonians. See the historical natural gas rates page. Natural Gas rates have displayed consistent decline from about 35c in April 2006 to less than 9c per cubic meter as of July 2012. See natural gas prices today: Click here.

    Because of this low operational cost incentive, many Toronto homes are now replacing any non-natural gas fuel source to natural gas and gas distribution companies are taking an ever-increasing proactive measure in efforts to supply all of Torontonians with natural gas and gas meters. We have many clients everyday who want to change from oil or electric furnaces to natural gas furnaces. If you are a Toronto resident currently not having a gas meter, you should think seriously about switching to natural gas and applying for a gas meter. There are also many incentives, like free installation and even considerable cash or gift card incentives for you to switch to natural gas.

    So do take advantage of these low operational costs, if you are already not, and start seeing quick changes on your utility bills.

    Also, please don’t forget that home central furnaces, use electricity to operate their blower motor for forced-air distribution. So do keep in mind the hydro cost incurred by operating the blower when it comes to purchasing your new furnace. This will be discussed in more details where we discuss about important furnace features with which you should most certainly educate yourself when it comes to making a decision to replace your furnace.

  • What Is The Right Size Furnace For My Toronto Home?

    Okay, so based on the above and so far we have accomplished that we are replacing our existing furnace with a high-efficiency gas furnace. The next step is to determine the size (the required energy output) of the furnace that would be required for our home to keep it comfortable even on the coldest day of the year.

    This is in detail explained in our furnace and A/C sizing guide page. It is beneficial for you to read through this page but most important factors to remember in determining the size of your furnace is first noting the existing size of your furnace (output heating value expressed in BTU/hr). Keeping in mind that it is important to have the right size, as opposed to under or over-sized – and remembering that most furnaces in our Canadian homes are oversized, we can in most cases use the charts on our sizing guide page to find out the right size given the age and square footage of your home.

  • What Features Should I Look For When Comparing High-Efficiency Furnaces?

    Now that you know how much heat output your home requires, it is now time to look into different furnace models that best suit your needs and match your budget at the same time. Matching your budget does not mean only looking at the initial cost of installation. You should seriously not over-look the value of an attractive payback period. Look at it as an investment you are making in the heating system of your home.

    For example, if a furnace costs $2,000 and another furnace costs $2,400, the $2,400 furnace might save you an additional $150 per year, which means that you have a payback period of $400/$150=2.7 years. Any payback period giving you a return on your investment within 5 years, is considered a smart investment. In the above case, if you purchased and installed the $2,400 furnace, not only you will recover the difference in 2 years and 8-9 months, but for every year that passes you are saving yourself from paying an extra $150. However, if the $2,400 furnace only saved you $50 in comparison with the $2,000 furnace, then your payback is 10 years, which may be pushing it a little – depending on your inital budget.

    So how do you know which furnace is economical? Or maybe you should also ask: How do I know which furnace will me you more Comfort? Afterall, sometimes you can’t put a price on comfort.

    • When looking at different furnace brands and models available in Toronto, there are 3-4 factors and features that determine if you are making an economical investment:
    • What are the estimated operational cost of this furnace? The following 3 factors directly influence the operational cost of a high-efficiency gas furnace:
    • First, how much is the complete installed price plus HST?
      •       The furnace’s rated AFUE
      •       The type of blower motor featured on the furnace
      •       The type of inducer motor
      •       And the eligible rebates on the particular furnace model

    With answering the above questions – which will be discussed in more details in the following sections – you can do a complete cost analysis to determine the economic aspect of your choices and make a decision strictly based on an economical point of view!
    But wait! It isn’t ALL about a direct econimical analysis. Sometimes, and depending on your circumstances, you just can’t put a price on comfort. So what other furnace features and functionalities should you look for in a furnace?

    • Number of Heating Stages: single-stage? two-stage? three-stage? or fully modulating?
    • ECM Blower Motor?
    • ECM Inducer Motor?

    You should also consider the following when installing your new high-efficiency furnace:

    • Available Parts and Labour Warranty of the furnace?
    • And Rebates, as mentioned above.
  • How Much Does It Cost To Have My New Furnace Installed?

    You can find pricing on our Goodman Furnaces, if you live in the Greater Toronto Area. We are limited by Carrier Corp and Lennox industries not to provide pricing on Carrier and Lennox furnaces online.

  • What Does AFUE Mean and Why Is It Important?

    AFUE stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. The fuel in this case being natural gas. Althought electricity is also used for the operation of the furnace blower and inducer motor, when it comes to AFUE we are only referring to the source of fuel that is used to generate heat.

    Given that the AFUE is an efficiency term, the AFUE of a gas furnace is rated from a scale of 0 to 100% gas consumption efficiency. Today in Toronto, any furnace with an AFUE of 94%, is considered a high-efficiency furnace – based on Canadian government regulations. This used to be at 90% followed by 92%, previously.

    What do you think the AFUE of your furnace is? Although, this number might not be readily available, you could always calculate it based on information that should be supplied on the furnace sticker – usually inside the furnace, meaning that you have to open the furnace front door to get this info. The AFUE is the OUTPUT heating power/INPUT heating power. The INPUT and OUTPUT values are always displayed on the furnace sticker. For a 20 to 30 year old Toronto furnace, you are usually looking at around 70% AFUE. Please do remember that the AFUE, depending on the quality of the furnace and the manner in which it has been maintained throughout the years, will slowly decline over the years. So, for instance, if a 25 year old furnace is rated to have an AFUE of 70%, its true efficiency is probably at around 60% after 25 years of hard work. This value can be far less depending on the furnace maintenance record.

    • If you have a furnace that is about 20 years old or older, its AFUE is probably around 60% at the present moment- which means that for every dollar you are paying to heat your home, only 60 cents is used towards actually heating your home. The other 40 cents is absolutely wasted. So when you replace the furnace with – say an Infinity Carrier model 59MN7Awhich has an AFUE of 98.5%, you will only waste 1.5 cents as compared to 40 cents which will save you 38.5 cents out of every dollar you pay to heat your home.
  • What Do The Number Of Heating 'Stages' indicate And Why Should I Care?

    If you are on this page, chances are you have a single-stage furnace. There are always exceptions, of course, but in dealing with Toronto’s furnace replacement market, it’s been the trend. Now, what is the difference with a single or a 2-stageor a 3-stage operation? What is a modulating furnace?

    In a multi-stage operation, there exists a gas valve which regulates gas flow rate into the burners and the heat exchanger. In a single-stage operation, the natural gas is always flowing at its full 100% capacity.

    In a 2-stage operation, the system usually – depending on thermostat settings – first comes on the lower heating stage, which is associated with about 60% of its full natural gas flowrate capacity. If the furnace operation was not successful in reaching the thermostat setpoint in, say, 10 to 16 minutes, the gas regulator valve will completely open to allow full flow and therefore increase the supply rate of heat to your home.

    The same concept lies under a 3-stage furnace, except that instead of 2 different settings at 60% open and fully open, the gas valve now has 3 settings, another one at around 40%. A 3-stage furnace can often be referred to as a modulating furnace which is different from a true modulating furnace.

    Now a true modulating furnace is one that has over 40-50 settings on its gas valve regulator with small incremental change from 30 to 100% opening. Carrier’s INFINITY 98 is an example of a true modulating furnace that will not only modulate up but it also is the only furnace in the world that can modulate down, as well.

    So what is the big deal with the number of stages? Why is that beneficial for you?

    Well, in answer to this question, let’s start by looking at a scenario. You have a single-stage furnace. You have the temperature reading at 20C and the furnace is now off. You feel a bit cold so you get up, go to the thermostat and set the temperature at 21C. The furnace will kick in and since this is a single-stage furnace you know that the gas valve is fully open and your furnace is operating at its full capacity in raising the temperature by 1C. What you might notice is that it suddenly starts to get too hot. You get up and go to the thermostat again and you see that the thermostat is actually reading 23C and the furnace has just turned off. You will get to be a little cooler as the temperature drops a little under the setpoint of 21C, which is when the furnace wil kick back in. These temperature fluctuations are as a direct result of lack of control over the fuel flow rate to the burners that supply heat. Obviously, when the amount of gas flow rate is not controlled, how can you have a tight control on the rate of supplied heat and therefore, temperature in your home? Surely, you have all experienced these ups and downs if your furnace is in fact a single-stage furnace. Now imagine how the amount of heat which directly affects the temperature in your home can be controlled with a gradual change. The more the number of heating stages, the better control you have on keeping the temperature at the desired setpoint at all times. Now you can imagine the tightest control possible with a fully modulating furnace.

    Ask us about the other technology all Carrier multi-stage furnaces possesss to ensure the tightest temp control. It’s a patented technology by Carrier called adaptive logic.

    There are generally, then, two main advanatges that multi-stage furnaces bring to your home and the higher the number of heating stages, the more extensive the following:

    • tighter control on temperature resulting in more even temperatures and eliminating fluctuations
    • furnace operation will be quieter because most often the furnace will have to make very small change to temperature – if it’s kept at a constant desired setpoint – and so usually only the first stages of operation will be acting. Lower gas flow rate is associated with lower sound as increase of pressure in flow will be accompanied by more vibration and therefore more noise.

    Misconception About Number Of Heating Stages And Saving Energy

    Just know that the number of furnace stages do not have a direct effect on the efficiency and rate of gas cunsumption. You always require the same amount of energy in order to heat your house. When the furnace is operating on the higher stages, it will use more gas in a shorter period. Whereas on a lower stage, furnace would end up using the same energy but in the manner of less power in a longer period – which works out to have the same consumption level.

  • How Many Different Blower Motors Are Normally Used In Furnaces Available In Toronto?

    We can categorize blowers into three main categories:

    • PSC blowers – Single speed
      These blower motors consume the AC city electricity in the same AC form and always run at the same frequency. These are the very basic blower motors used in the heating industry today. They will, of course, beat the efficiency of a 20-year old blower motor by a mile, as they are about 30% more efficient than the old blower motors. However, don’t limit your options. They would not have the quietest operation and will not maximize your comfort.
    • ECM X13 – multi-speed motors
      ECM stands for Electronically-Commutated Motors and all ECM motors will first convert from AC electricity (the type of city electricity) to DC power. There are two direct advanatges that will result from DC power: DC Power has a lower and more efficient power consumption as opposed to AC power and converting to DC power will allow for modifying the motor speed – hence the term variable-speed. These are not true variable speed motors, rather they usually have around 4 different speed settings. They are about twice more efficient in electricity consumption than PSC single-speed blowers. The general sense is that they will be quieter, also considering that the furnaces are designed to work on lower heating and speed stages.
    • ECM – True Variable Speed
      Unlike the mutil-speed motors, there are many more different speed settings increasing at small increments. They can be 4 times more efficient than ECM X13 motors. They are in use in Carrier’s INFINITY furnace models.

    Operational Cost Comparison Between The Above 3 Types Of Blower Motors

    Let’s assume, first, that your old blower motor runs for a full year 24/7. Assuming an average household in Toronto – and assuming average electricity costs – you will incur a cost of about $600 towards your hydro bill alone.

    This value will cut down to around $400 if you end up purchasing a furnace that features a signle-speed blower using AC electricity.

    With an ECM X13 blower motor, you are looking at reducing this rate to $200.

    And finally with the true variable speed ECM, also using DC power, you will be able to further cut the hydro cost to an unbelievable $40. Amazing, don’t you think?

    Improving Hot And Cold Spots + Quieter operation

    Read our blog post on Carrier’s COMFORTHEAT Technology and find out in detail how ECM motors in Carrier furnaces improve the quality of your home comfort.

    ECM Inducer Motors

    Similar to blower motors, inducer motors can be ECM as well. An inducer motor or also referred to as a ventor motor, which basically drives the burnt flue gas (essentially carbon dioxide formed as a result of combustion of natural gas) out of the high-efficiency furnace and outside your home.

    An ECM inducer motor will result in quieter as well as a more efficient operation. So you might want to ask about the inducer motor as well!

  • In Search of The Perfect Furnace For Your Toronto Home, Also Consider All Warranty Options!

    For maximizing your peace of mind with respect to your new system installation and operation, be sure to explore all warranty options and differences. At most times, you will be given extended warranty options. Ask about those. The norm in our Toronto furnace market is a 10-year manufacturer part’s warranty. Don’t forget to have the labour warranty mentioned on your contract with the heating and cooling company. Normally, the equipment installed will not have factory labour warranty – which is why the labour warranty is usually offered by the installing contractor. 1 or 2 years of labour warranty is reasonable. Anything longer, you must look over your entire contract to search for fineprints indicating any conditions on the extended labour warranty.

    Please remember that it is truly unrealistic to have a 5 to 10 year labour warranty without making sure that the proper measures are taken with respect to furnace maintenance. You need to think twice about your purchase if you are given a 5 to 10-year labour warranty with no obligations from your part with respect to maintenance. You will end up either with a bankrupt company and therefore no labour warranty – OR you will end up getting charged regardless.

    Be sure to know exactly where each warranty comes from. The installing company or the manufacturer? Manufacturer warranty is most credible. To have the manufacturer labour warranty, it is usually extra and must be purchased through the installing heating and cooling company from the manufacturer. Weigh all options.

    Also be sure to ask about the warranty on the Heat Exchangers. The norm right now, is a life-time factory parts warranty on the primary and secondary heat exchangers.

  • How Can I Safely Clean My Fire Furnace?

    A furnace requires a proper cleaning and inspection every year at least once. Please turn off the furnace before you start cleaning it. Clean the parts and then brush gently the logs until they are clean one by one. You can also use of a vacuum cleaner to remove off the dust from the logs. You can clean the inner part of the furnace by itself. There’s a special furnace glass cleaner we created that you can acquire from our stores, which will help you clean the furnace glass. Caution! Do not use these standard glass cleaners. They can react vigorously with carbon deposits that accumulate in the fiery furnace. Wipe the inside parts of the furnace with a moistened piece of cloth.
