Heating Solutions Customized to Your Home
Our Energy Management Consultants (EMCs) work closely with you to design the best heating solution for your home. They bring years of experience in the HVAC industry to our no-cost, no-obligation furnace assessments. When they visit your home, they look at every aspect of your furnace replacement requirements: the age of your home, the insulation in your walls, the number of windows and doors and more. They then provide fixed-price quotes and payment options for the ideal new furnace for your home.

Enercare Smarter Furnace™
Get 24/7 HVAC performance monitoring from Enercare so any issues with your furnace can be detected and addressed before they become big problems. This service also spots declines in operating efficiency and adjusts your home’s temperature automatically to meet your personalized heating preferences.
Ductless Split Systems
Do you have a space that was added on to your home — like a sunroom, garage or in-law suite — and are having problems getting heat to it? You might consider a ductless split system. By adding a heat pump to a ductless air conditioner, you can heat and cool your home year-round with just one HVAC system.
What Else to Consider Before Renting a Furnace
Get your ducts and vents cleaned first
Before installing a new furnace, you should have any dust and debris in your ventilation system removed to ensure optimal performance of your new heating equipment.
Don’t forget about indoor air quality
To make the air inside your home safer and cleaner, consider adding a HEPA air filtration system, ultraviolet (UV) light system or ventilator as part of your furnace upgrade.
Consider replacing your AC, too
If you’re replacing a furnace that’s more than 15 years old, you should also consider upgrading your air conditioner at the same time to ensure full compatibility across all your HVAC equipment.

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.

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.
