What do I need to know before I have furnace repair in Toronto? Safety first! If you notice a loud noise, smell something funny, if your space is not heating properly, or something just doesn’t seem right, go with your instinct and have it investigated immediately. This is even more imperative if it’s a system under pressure such as a boiler system or uses natural gas.
Your furnace has an important job to do. It keeps your home at a comfortable temperature day after day 365/7. That makes it one of the most important aspects of your home or business.
Forget to Flip the Switch? Is your thermostat set to the “heat” setting? We occasionally forget to switch the thermostat setting from the “cooling” setting to the “heating” setting when the seasons change.
Fuel? If it is constantly cycling on and then off right away – especially for oil furnaces, check to see the gauge on the tank (sometimes they can be faulty and sometimes they can read a false positive if the sensor has shifted inside the tank). For natural gas, you will want a technician to check the flow of gas, the heating coil and the pilot light. If you smell gas, contact your gas company right away!
Heating Coil / Heat Exchanger? Sometimes debris from the vents can make it’s way down to the heating chamber, this can also be a fire hazard. There are other reasons why the coil can stop working, they do require regular maintenance and cleaning, and not having this done can be a factor.
Experience is paramount in the HVAC industry and cannot be overstated especially when it comes to furnace repair. Our 24-7 heating / cooling team, with 20+ years in business, is ready to help. Be it air conditioning or furnace repair & maintenance (or installation) on your residential or commercial property we have handled HVAC in almost every kind of property including tourist attractions, HVAC for high rise office buildings as well as condos in various cities across Southern Ontario.
Good maintenance can go a long way – furnaces are made of moving parts and doing HVAC maintenance to ensure nothing is rubbing or sticking can increase performance / longevity of the furnace itself. Sometime the energy efficiency after maintenance increases dramatically. Many HVAC companies will just want to try and sell you a new furnace, and not try to repair your old furnace, or see if maintenance will help. There are cases where parts are too old and worn, and technology has come a long way in regards to furnaces. It’s the tradeoff of what is going to cost more to run day to day than the cost to install a new one, in addition to any recent features a client may like such as wifi capability from a phone or smart home / office system.
If you are looking to keep your furnace, ideally, and just need some extra components, a great HVAC technician can also provide add-ons solutions that might be helpful depending on the human quotient and values that are important to the inhabitant. Things such as energy efficiency, air quality – such as fresh air exchangers, waste heat recapturing systems and humidifiers for example. Our team helps you choose the appropriate furnace and its accoutrements.
Alternate heating and cooling options are available as well. if everything is working great except for that “one room” at the far end of the house or office building that was added on – then perhaps a heat pump for that particular room is a better idea – which can also provide air conditioning in the summer months. No duct work needed (nor is a window needed), and new heat pumps are exceptionally energy efficient and different technology than baseboard heating. See our article Baseboard Heaters VS Heat Pumps.
