Furnace Language

What are Stages?

Stages describe the different levels of heat output from a furnace. A two-stage furnace has high and low settings for different levels of demand, while a single model operates at full blast, whether it’s needed or not.

icon

What is a Modulating Furnace?

A modulating furnace does not burn a fixed amount of gas like a single or two-stage furnace. For example, the Carrier 59MN7 can adjust fuel utilization in 1% increments between 40% and 100% capacity, depending on what your home needs. This translates to lower fuel consumption and a higher level of comfort.

What Does AFUE Mean?

“AFUE” stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. The AFUE rating reports how effectively a furnace converts fuel into heat for our homes. The higher the AFUE, the less money you'll spend on energy.

What Makes a Furnace Energy Star?

To earn the Energystar rating in Canada, furnaces must be equipped with an electronically commutated fan motor (ECM) and meet a 95% AFUE rating.

What's the Best Furnace Brand?

We wish we had a simple answer, but this is a complex question, and as much as we want to say Carrier or Amana, that wouldn’t be fair. The truth is all the big furnace brands make amazing products with state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and strict testing procedures. Where some manufacturers fall short is with the barrier to entry to sell their products. If a brand does not have an aggressive vetting process, its products could end up in the hands of the wrong technician. In short, installation is everything, and you are best to focus on picking the right installers first and the brand second. However, if you are buying a furnace for the first time, we would suggest sticking with dealer-restricted brands that distribute their own products. In most cases, you can trust that manufacturers select firms that they are confident will do right by their brand.

Best Dealer Restricted Brands: 1. Carrier 2. Amana 3. Trane 4. Lennox (Elite Series and above)

When Should I Replace my Furnace?

This is a tricky question. There is no easy way of knowing the best time to change your furnace, but here are a few things to consider:

  1. Plan ahead – It’s better to be proactive than reactive, so give yourself some time to shop around and find the best furnace for you. Waiting until your furnace fails you and you are without heat is going to force you to pick the company that can install the fastest, not the one that will do the best job.
  2. Energy Savings – It’s not always the case, but if your current furnace has a fixed-speed Permanent Split Capacitor (PSC) motor, upgrading to an ECM motor can decrease your energy usage by as much as 75%.
  3. Timing – The most important question is – is this the right time for you? Furnace replacement is a substantial investment, and not everyone is prepared for it financially. If your furnace breaks down and you’re deciding between repair and replacement, you’ll have to consider the best strategy for you. Spending money on a repair, knowing it needs to be replaced, isn’t ideal, but that could buy the time needed to save for the purchase. However, if the funds are available and you anticipated this investment, replacing a dated furnace will provide far more benefit over time

In conclusion, we never ‘age shame’ a furnace, and there is no set age when a furnace needs to be replaced. However, it’s fair to say that any furnace over fifteen years old is ripe for replacement. As replacement parts become more expensive and harder to source, the value of repairing a furnace decreases.

How Much Does a Furnace Cost?

The cost of installing a new furnace will depend on a few factors, including the size of your space, the furnace brand, and the material requirements, but that’s not the answer you’re looking for, and happily, we have data to help.

The average cost of installing forty furnaces in 2022 is $4,267. Keep in mind that this average includes all sorts of installations, from entry-level furnaces all the way up to fully modulating furnaces.

What Warranty Does Comfort Hub Provide?

In most cases, we match the manufacturer’s parts warranty with an equivalent labor warranty. For example, Carrier products have a standard ten-year parts warranty, and we match that with a ten-year labor warranty. This is our way of saying that we stand behind the products we install.

Does Comfort Hub use Sub-Contractors?

Absolutely not. All our technicians are fully licensed employees. Each proposal has a no sub-contractor guarantee, so you can rest assured that your products will be installed correctly the first time around with us; it’s what we do best, after all.

Is Comfort Hub Partnered with Lowe’s?

Yes! From Kanata to Orleans, we are the installation company for the Carrier/Lowes HVAC program. We’re still a locally owned and operated business; we just have an 800-pound-gorilla on our side.
