What to look for when you’re buying a furnace

Buying a furnace is one of the most important investments you’ll make in your home. To help make sure you get the right furnace at the right price, we’ve prepared this checklist for you:

Size.
The size of your furnace is determined by many factors, including the square footage of your home, number of rooms, levels, climate and number of windows. A trained, experienced heating and cooling advisor can help to determine which is best for you.

Efficiency.
ENERGY STAR® qualified furnaces will save you money on your heating bills — and they’re better for the environment. They may also qualify for government rebates.

Rent vs. Own?
While renting often sounds like an attractive alternative, it can be expensive in the long run. Renting a furnace can cost as much as $18,000 more than buying. Ask your provider which option is best for you.

Expertise.
There are a lot of people claiming to be experts in our industry. Unfortunately, many of them don’t have the adequate training or experience. The ClimateCare network has 20 years of experience in the heating and cooling industry, and all of our technicians are trained and certified, so you don’t have to worry.

ClimateCare is Canada’s largest network of independent heating and cooling experts. We are a 100% Canadian, member-owned organization. All of our contractors meet our strict guidelines for licensing and certification, plus pass a rigorous screening process.

We’re personal climate experts, but we’re more than that. We’re also your neighbours.
