Furnace installations and repairs

Goodman FurnacesWhy Choose a Furnace?

The best furnace is the one that you never need to worry about. It turns on the moment you need it and then runs quietly and efficiently all winter long as needed. We offer furnace repairs and installations in Toronto and the rest of the GTA. All Goodman® gas furnaces are loaded with features designed to provide outstanding performance for years to come. We use advanced techniques and materials so you know the cozy, even heat you feel in every corner of your home is an energy-efficient warming trend that’s designed to stay for many years. Most models come with a 10-year parts warranty and a lifetime heat exchanger warranty that is unparalleled in the industry, giving you peace of mind. These high-efficiency furnaces are designed to lower your utility bills while providing you with reliable heat.

Remember that when a manufacturer builds a furnace they are not designing it for your home! It is the responsibility of the technician to install and ADJUST the furnace to operate optimally for your home. Even the best furnace on the market can waste all your money if not tuned correctly. These adjustments include measurements of heat loss, air quality, and air flow prior to installation and the setting of timers, gas pressure, fan speeds, and much more during installation.

Choosing or Upgrading Your Furnace

Always remember that there is a payback period with any furnace you purchase, or, a return on your investment. The more efficient the furnace is, the sooner you make your money back in utility and repair savings. In addition, the way your furnace is installed has a huge impact on the way it operates.

Our technicians will first thoroughly diagnose your home prior to replacing your furnace; examining airflow through your ducts, measuring heat loss through windows and the attic, and determining the correct sizing of the unit you require are only some of the measures we take. For example, we may discover that heat loss in your home is higher than normal so we will suggest either sealing your windows and insulating the attic to avoid purchasing a larger unit that would compensate for the heat loss.

Sizing your furnace is a factor many technicians and homeowner don’t appreciate and it involves more than just the square footage of your home. Heat loss, airflow, ventilation, duct design, and even having a skylight in your home will affect the size of the furnace required to evenly and efficiently distribute hot and cold air through your home. Too small a furnace and it will run constantly trying to raise your home’s temperature, all the while burning away money in electricity and gas. Too large a furnace and you will have cold spots in your home and inconsistent heat. In most cases, the quality of installation is more important than the specific furnace itself.

Factors to Consider When Buying

All furnaces built in Canada today are high efficiency (90% or greater) but they are not all the same. When deciding on which furnace to buy, the main factors to consider are a warranty, operating cost, and comfort.

A solid warranty, such as the one offered by Goodman, will provide you with the peace of mind that if anything should go wrong with your furnace, we will return and fix this issue or in some cases completely replace the unit for free.

Comfort refers to the fact that the reason furnaces were made is to provide us with comfortable heat! Dry skin, cold spots, noise, and safety are all worth considering when buying a new furnace. Operating cost refers to maintenance and energy consumption. Luckily, here at QHC, we offer maintenance plans on all of our units so you don’t have to worry about that. However, each furnace has its own cost of operation for gas and electricity.

It is best to invest in a furnace that has an ECM motor, saving you up to 70% in electricity costs when compared to a standard PSC motor. This is why OPA gives you an instant $250 cash rebate for purchasing a furnace with an ECM blower motor. An ECM blower motor will deliver air to your home at variable speeds ensuring every room in your home is warmed equally and save you money on your electricity bills. Combining ECM technology with a modulating gas valve will give you the best results for both comfort and savings. Modulating gas valves have the ability to fire at a multitude of stages. The valve will open less in the warmer months and open more when operating in cooler months. It will switch to a lower power once your home as reached the desired temperature to provide a consistent flow of heat, avoiding fluctuations in temperature and reduced gas consumption. Modulating gas valves respond reactively to the needs of your home. Furnaces with this technology have a specialized thermostat that allows them to be so intelligent. When deciding on which furnace to upgrade to, remember that you are making an investment. Allow one of our experts to provide you with 30 years of knowledge and experience with a free consultation.
