Can’t decide between forced air heating and radiant heating? Or do you feel unsure about what heating system will work best in your home?
There are so many different heating and cooling systems. So, how do you know which is the right one? Ask a professional!
We are all aware, buildings in North York Toronto are not like other places, with a conglomeration of various eras, styles / retrofits and franken-renos. Various furnace installations can require careful consideration for the age and type of building.
Starting with safety first, of course! If your space is not heating properly, if you notice a loud noise, or something just doesn’t seem right, go with your instinct and have it investigated immediately, especially 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, making it one of the most important aspects of your business or home, especially in Ontario winters!
Unfortunately, even the best maintained furnace will reach the end of its life at one point or another. Does your furnace need to be replaced? There are a few considerations, you will see by reading further… like does it just need maintenance or actual replacement; is it the right size for the space?

What do I need to know before installing a new furnace? Looking for a new furnace installation or are you needing to find a solution to that always too cold or too warm attic or sun-room, we can offer a variety of options.
Outside of a furnace, if you are in a smaller space or need a heating/cooling top up for that room that is always mysteriously the wrong temperature, you may want to consider heat pumps. They do not require duct work or a window and they provide both heat and a/c. They have recently become popular in North America, but have been used extensively in Europe and other continents for decades.
The majority of heating contractors will probably not tell you that a furnace can actually be too large for a space. We’ve all fairly well guessed that they can be too small and overwork and break due to excess fatigue.
Too large of a furnace in a building, the furnace cycles on and off too frequently and not get the desired air temperature consistently throughout the whole space – this can also disrupt humidity levels – which are an issue if they are too high, can cause mold etc, or too low, and therefore potentially affecting building structure.
Did you know… friction with furnace parts can increase energy costs significantly, especially in older North York Toronto buildings? With our many years of experience, we have found that because furnaces are made of moving parts, providing quality furnace maintenance to ensure nothing is rubbing or sticking can profoundly increase performance and the longevity of the furnace itself.
Have you noticed the HVAC a loud or weird noise? Is your space is not heating properly? Or does something just not seem right? Go with your instinct and have it investigated, especially if it’s a system under pressure such as a boiler system or uses natural gas!

Heating Ontario’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) certified professionals can discuss the various options of retrofitting existing systems in Toronto’s unique buildings and neighbourhoods, as well as the options of more economical or better suited systems for the existing North York property.
HVAC Add-on products are often a seamless integration to an existing system, for example:
Industry Estimates are around 20BTU per sq ft of space and about 12000 BTUs=1Ton. This being said, plentiful or large windows – especially the age and quality as well as vaulted ceilings and other structural attributes such as the quality of insulation for example, can change that rule.
A seasoned North York HVAC technician will know what size of air conditioner is appropriate for the type and age and other factors, including any existing HVAC Systems of the Toronto building as well as the lot, and setup and costs for each option to change/retrofit or upgrade.
Good maintenance can realistically go a long way in some cases. Both air conditioning units and furnaces are made of moving parts and having furnace repair or air conditioner maintenance to ensure nothing is sticking, scraping or rubbing can often dramatically increase performance and the longevity of the air conditioner itself.
We have seen some remarkable improvements in energy efficiency and lower energy costs after routine maintenance calls in many units.
Wall Mounted air conditioners also known as Mini Splits / Heat Pumps or Ductless Wall Units provide air conditioning as well as heat are a great energy efficient ductless & windowless option in North York homes and offices.
See our article on Heat Pumps. The technology for a heat pump is dramatically different than a window air conditioner and is astoundingly more efficient than the window counterpart. They also perform double duty in the colder months by providing heating as well as air conditioning.
If you are looking for a new air conditioner unit, repair or routine maintenance of the cooling system that you currently have in your home, Heating Ontario’s seasoned technicians can help.
Our air conditioning contractors both commercial and residential are available to work on the unit you have and to help you decide what the best option is if you are looking for something new. We can find the right size, efficiency, and price for all of your cooling system needs.
