How To Get The Best Results From Your New Furnace


One thing we can all be sure of is that a Canadian winter is a harsh one. All you need is a short period of plummeting temperatures to make your heating and other utility bills skyrocket. Using your furnace efficiently can save you a bundle. Learn all about the installation, maintenance and repair of your furnace to make this winter a comfortable one.

Know the Efficiency of Your Furnace

Your gas furnace has its efficiency measured as its Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE). They are the measurements that compare the amount of heat furnaces create with how much fuel they require to run. The paperwork that came with your furnace should tell you its AFUE. An AFUE of more than eighty percent is recommended for the most savings on your energy bill. If it is 15 years old or older, it may be time to upgrade to a new furnace in the Greater Toronto Area.

Size Matters

Getting the best results from your furnace in the Greater Toronto Area has a lot to do with how it is operated and kept up. However, it also has to do with the size of the unit itself. For instance, you do not want a unit that is too small and is wasting energy trying to overcompensate. Similarly, you do not want one that is too big and uses far more energy than you need. Match the size of your furnace in the Greater Toronto Area to how much heat your home needs in any weather.

Maintain it Well

By regularly taking care of your furnace in the Greater Toronto Area, you can keep it running optimally. This will save you money on energy bills and also make your home more comfortable. Use these tips:

- Clean grime from filters.
- Make sure vents are clear.
- Clean blowers and vents.

Your furnace is essential for making your home comfortable during these frigid Canadian winters. Use these little tricks to keep it running smoothly and make it as efficient as possible. If you are in need of a new furnace or repairs on your existing furnace, A-Plus Heating and Cooling located in the Greater Toronto Area can assist you this season.

FAQ

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.
