Forced air gas furnaces are the most common and popular home heating solutions in Toronto. For homeowners here, installing a new or replacing an existing one with a newer model, the experienced professionals at Air Leaders Inc. will make the furnace installation process fast, safe, and affordable.
Furnaces heat your home by circulating hot air through heating ducts leading to every room. Air is heated in it by natural gas or an electric heater, and is blown through the ducts via the blower.
The best time to install a new furnace is before you need to. The life expectancy of a traditional gas heating system is between 12 to 15 years if maintained annually. However, many people replace theirs earlier to save money on operation costs, and to enjoy the extra comfort and safety a new heating system brings. Replacing an old or damaged furnace in the warmer months means that you will not have to endure the colder months without heat.
Failures in heating systems usually occur when they overwork, which is typically during cold winter nights. Not only would this be uncomfortable, but it can lead to further damage to your home as a result of frozen pipes and other cold-weather-related issues. If you are unsure, you can always consult with one of our licensed technicians for a complete checkup of your existing furnace & we can evaluate the condition of your existing heating system.
There are many benefits to installing a furnace in your home in Markham, which is why they are the leading and most favored heating system for Canadian homeowners. These benefits include:
New furnaces offered by our HVAC consultants are highly efficient, not only on gas but also electricity. High-efficiency heating systems with variable-speed ECM motors use less energy than a 100-watt light bulb. Older ones with standard blower motors, on average, consume nearly 500 watts. These furnaces most often qualify for a rebate from governmental energy grants and programs. For more information, ask our HVAC experts in Markham to find out if you are an eligible candidate.
In addition to saving installation costs, many new furnaces are recommended by Air Leaders. allow the heating system to run longer, providing a level of comfort unsurpassed compared to conventional systems. Occupants will find a more even, consistent temperature throughout the house. Plus, indoor air quality is enhanced by extending the operation time of humidification and air-filtration accessories.
For your peace of mind, new high-efficiency furnaces are equipped with a long list of safety features. For example, specially designed sensors shut off the unit if the burner fails to ignite properly, a flue blockage occurs or operating temperatures exceed the norm.
High-efficiency HVAC systems sold and installed by professional HVAC technicians at Markham are hand-picked for your home and come with quality materials ensuring that the entire system is built to last. Our new furnaces' heat exchangers are made without welds to resist corrosion and cracks over time and are covered by a lifetime warranty from manufacturers.
On top of all features discussed above, new furnaces are equipped with variable speed. ECM motors, if sized and set up properly can run significantly quieter than an older furnace. So, if you hear loud noise in yours every time it turns on, discuss that concern with our professional at Air Leaders Inc. during your first free consultation visit.
Modern furnaces are high-tech pieces of equipment. They are responsive, efficient, and effective home heating devices. Most consist of a heat exchanger, a secondary heat exchanger, an inducer blower, a hot surface ignitor (no pilot), an electronic board, a gas valve, and an external thermostat. Homeowners usually only deal with the thermostat, but there is a lot at work happening behind the scenes every time you raise or lower the temperature in your home!
The first step of installing a furnace in Markham is to remove the existing unit and prep the area where the new one will be installed. Then, the new unit needs to be brought to the installation site, unpacked, and prepped for installation. At this stage, we will inspect your air-conditioner evaporator coil and conduct a thorough cleaning, if needed. Finally, the gas, electrical, venting, and air ducts are attached. It is always highly recommended to replace your furnace, air-conditioner, and thermostat at the same time to achieve optimum efficiency, reliability, and durability between all systems.
Our HVAC installations require skills and experience, and Air Leaders has both. All of our furnace installations:
