More often than not, a piece of machinery will make some noises to let you know when it’s not functioning properly. For example, a car engine will sputter or backfire while a laptop will make a noisy whirring sound. Even a furnace makes noises when it’s not working as it should. Perhaps you’ve heard a grinding, booming, or screeching noise from your furnace at one time or another.

It’s never a good thing when the systems that make our lives easier start to emit moans and groans that mean they’re on the fritz. But at least they’re giving you fair warning. It’s almost worse when you don’t receive any audio clues ahead of time when your furnace suddenly gives out on you with what seems like no warning. 

That’s why it pays to know the silent signs that mean you’re likely to need heating repair in Vaughan, ON. Here are 5 signs to be aware of.

So you’ve decided it’s time for furnace installation. Congratulations! The decision to spring for a new furnace is undoubtedly one that wasn’t made lightly.

Although the hard decision has been made, that doesn’t mean you’re completely done with making some choices when it comes to furnace replacement in Mississauga, ON. You’ll need to consider two important factors: whether you get a gas or electric furnace, and its AFUE rating if you go with gas.

An AFUE rating measures how efficient a gas furnace is. (It also measures furnaces that use propane and oil as a fuel source but in this blog we’ll be concentrating on gas.) The minimum AFUE is 95% which is already fairly high. Let’s take a look at how the AFUE ratings for furnaces differ between gas and electric models so you can be an informed consumer when you make this last decision regarding your new heating system.

Many homeowners who’ve owned a heat pump for years are still surprised to learn that a heat pump needs maintenance twice a year. That’s because the idea of HVAC maintenance occurring once a year is so ingrained in the minds of homeowners.

Ideally, these maintenance appointments are scheduled in the spring and fall, once before the cooling season and heating season. This is how to really maximize the year-round comfort a heat pump provides!

If you haven’t had this essential service done yet, here are 3 reasons why you should have it done ASAP. Contact us for heat pump service to make sure you can rely on your heat pump throughout the fall and winter.
