Your furnace is one of the most important parts of your home. You rely on it to keep each room at a comfortable temperature, all season long. What would life be like without a properly working furnace during the winter? You would be left to face those bitterly cold temperatures that only the winter months provide. All the sweaters in the world wouldn't be able to keep you warm enough! That's why your furnace heating system should never be overlooked.
There are many different ways to heat your home. The type of heating method you use depends entirely on your home and your own personal preferences. The most popular heating method is the HVAC (Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning) unit. The unit is used to both heat and cool the home, depending on the time of year. How does it work? An HVAC unit is typically installed in the basement. It then heats up outdoor air and pushes that air through ductwork in the home. This is how warm air is distributed to each of the rooms. There are in fact, other ways to heat your home. Another popular choice is radiant heating, which uses tubes or cables to warm the room. Those tubes are installed directly into the floorboards, which makes it a more even heating method.
Regardless of your heating method, it is undeniably important to take care of your furnace heating system. That doesn't just mean having regular maintenance performed - though that is important, too. It also means paying attention to the age of your furnace. Did you know that the average furnace only lasts for ten years? After that point, it will slowly start to wear down. That means more and more repairs will be needed. Over time, those repairs will become more costly. By putting off furnace replacement, you're essentially putting a band-aid on your furnace. While the repairs will keep it working for a short period of time, it's not a solution!
There are a few ways to tell when your furnace is on the way out. You may start to notice that you need more repairs done. Or, your furnace may start making strange noises or let out a burning odour. If you find this is happening in your home, it's time to bring in one of our Heating & Cooling Toronto professionals. They can look at your heating system, make any necessary repairs, and help you determine whether it's time for furnace replacement.
When it comes to your furnace, remember: once your furnace reaches the age of ten, it's time to start looking into your options. It's better to do this before your furnace actually breaks down. That will give you more time to consider what you really want. For instance, are you interested in an energy efficient model? Is there a budget you would like to stick to? Don't make a rush decision - plan ahead and pay attention.

"It has made our home much more comfortable. Thank you!..." - out of 5 stars
We live in an older home in North York. It is actually so old that there isn't even any ductwork. In order to keep our family comfortable, we knew there were two options: get ductwork installed or find another way. So, we called Heating Cooling Toronto. Thankfully, they were able to go through all of our options with us. That is how we ended up with a high velocity heating system in our home. It has made our home much more comfortable. Thank you!

"I was very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of the staff..." - out of 5 stars
I was getting ready to move into a new home. There were so many decisions to make...including the type of heating system I wanted. My parents home had a forced air system but one of my co-workers actually had radiant floor heating. After hearing what she had to say about it, I decided to start looking into my options. That's when I contacted you. They went through the benefits of using radiant heating and what the installation process would actually involve. I was very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of the staff. They helped me to make an informed decision. I love my heating system and am very happy with the results!

When it starts to get warmer, I know that I need my air conditioner to work without fail. It was time for my annual maintenance, so I contacted Heating Cooling Toronto. I had heard some positive things about their services. I am very glad that I got in touch with them. They performed my air conditioner maintenance before the summer weather really hit.
