The Rental Process
Schedule a free in-home assessment
Schedule a free in-home assessment by calling us or filling out the Get Free Price Quote form above. If you fill out the form, one of our representatives will reach out to you shortly to set up an appointment. In both cases, after your appointment is scheduled, we’ll send a highly trained Energy Management Consultant to inspect your home. These experts have years of experience in the HVAC industry and will work with you to find the best solution for your unique heating needs.
In-home visit with an Energy Management Consultant (EMC)
One of our EMCs will come to your home and complete a no-cost, no-obligation assessment of your home for about one hour. This assessment includes our EMC looking at your current HVAC equipment and asking you questions to understand the age of your home, how insulated the walls, doors and windows are, and any concerns you’ve had with hot and cold areas. This process helps us calculate heat loss and provide the best solutions for you. The EMC will also provide fixed price quotes and payment options.
Once you’ve decided which heating solution you want, our EMC will book an installation appointment that works with your schedule. The installation can take 1-2 days depending on the size of the installation. If we’re installing your furnace in the middle of winter with extreme temperatures, the team may need to come back in the spring to finish the job. Our installation teams are committed to making sure they are respectful to you and your home while installing your new equipment. Each installation works to manufacturer standards so you will get the best from your equipment for years to come.
Maintaining your equipment
To keep your furnace in tip-top shape, maintaining your new equipment is important. Make sure to change the furnace filter at least every three months to keep your HVAC equipment running efficiently. Also, just like a car, regular maintenance is important to help increase the lifespan of your furnace and reduce your monthly energy bills. You can simplify the maintenance process with an Enercare Heating Maintenance Plan.
Renting vs Buying a Furnace or Air Conditioner
The average price range of a typical new natural gas or propane high-efficiency furnace in Ontario ranges from $3,500 to $6,000. This price includes standard installation from a fully-insured, licensed company, at least a one year warranty and all required licenses for installation.
The cost of a new furnace is dependent on four factors:
- Environmental choices, including energy efficiency, humidification, air filtration sizes (which are dependent on allergies or other sensitivities), and comfort-enhancing options.
- Personal choices including extended warranties, maintenance plans and guarantees.
- Technical requirements including the size of the home, floor plan, number of stories, existing ductwork and BTU load.
- Code requirements including safety, licensing and building code requirements.
- To get an accurate, no-surprises, no-obligation quote, contact us at 1-855-619-7701
The average lifecycle of a furnace is 15 years, but age is not the only factor to consider. Other reasons to replace your furnace include safety, frequency of breakdowns, quality of installation and improper sizing.
Every home is unique and a number of factors impact the furnace size needed, including the size and age of your home, air flow, how many windows your home has, insulation, and specific homeowner requirements. To make sure you get the furnace size that best suits your needs, it’s crucial to have a professional visit your home to complete an evaluation to calculate heat loss and air flow. Incorrect sizing of a furnace may cause a shortened life of the equipment, higher utility costs and diminished comfort because your home is not warming up correctly.
We have five guarantees - Home Comfort Guarantee, No Surprises Guarantee, No Lemon Guarantee, Environmental Focus Guarantee and Property Protection and Client Respect Guarantee.
We recommend that you change or clean your furnace filter every one-to-three months.
If the humidity in your home is lower than 30 percent on a hygrometer it is recommended that you consider a humidifier. Health Canada recommends a home’s relative humidity should be between 30 to 55 percent in the winter. Most homes require a humidifier in Canada due to the dry air created by our cold climate.
- A natural gas or propane high-efficiency furnace will start up when an attached thermostat senses that the temperature has dropped below a preset level.
- Before the furnace starts, the ventor motor does a safety check to ensure that the venting is clear, as determined by the pressure switch. The ignitor then ignites the burners inside the furnace combustion chamber and starts creating heat. The heat is transferred to the primary or "first" heat exchanger which heats the air as it flows through the furnace. Afterwards, the combustion gases are passed through a secondary heat exchanger to further extract heat.
- The blower motor pushes the warmed air through the plenum and out into the house via the registers.
- The combustion gases, including carbon monoxide, are safely vented to the outdoors from the furnace.
- In most cases, outside fresh air is pulled into the burn chamber to provide a more efficient burn. However, this practice isn’t done in old homes.
- Any cold air left in the home gets circulated into the furnace to be heated up.
