Calgary Furnace Installation

With shorter days and cooler temperatures getting closer each week, it’s time to look towards the winter weather that lays ahead so that you can be prepared. With the inevitable icy temperatures that our Calgary winters bring us, we must rely heavily on our furnaces to keep us cozy and warm. With all the extra usage, your utility bills can increase by a lot in no time. That being said, with some preventative maintenance, you can ensure that your heating system is primed and ready to take on the weather as efficiently as possible to keep you toasty without the costly burden.

Here are five advantages of furnace maintenance that make it clear why it is worth the investment.


Lower Your Energy Bills

Your furnace is similar to your car. It requires regular maintenance to get the most out of it and to keep costs as low as possible by preventing any major issues from occurring. By having your furnace regularly maintained, especially before the winter season, you’re helping to improve the efficiency of it. This equates to less energy required to keep your home warm.

DISTINCT’s qualified technicians will complete a 30point inspection covering everything from checking your furnace’s safety control and limits, ignition system, gas operation, CO testing, heat exchanger, burner tubes, temperature rise, filter condition and, if necessary, perform any necessary repairs that will keep your furnace humming smoothly without guzzling up so much energy.


Extend the Lifespan

Just like with any other equipment, taking care of your furnace will allow it to function properly for much longer. Regular furnace maintenance will identify any lingering issues and repair them to avoid any damage that can contribute to major problems.


Less Hassle and Repairs

By having your furnace serviced regularly, it can help monitor any discrepancies with it that can be dealt with before they lead to larger, more expensive repairs. That means less hassle and aggravation for you.


Keep it Functioning Safely

Safety is also an important by-product of performing regular maintenance. Qualified technicians will check the furnace, monitor and change the filter when necessary, remove debris that can accumulate around the unit, and ensure that there’s no risk of carbon monoxide entering your home.


Improved Capacity for Performance

When you take proper care of your furnace, it will improve the performance, along with the capacity to work better at maintaining a comfortable temperature throughout your home during the winter.

Calgary winters can quickly equate to spikes in your utility bills with all the use your furnace gets. Make your winter season worry-free by taking care of the maintenance now.

Your HVAC’s duct system is the heart of your home’s heating and cooling system. It provides a controlled airflow throughout your home. How well your duct system works can spell a huge difference in costs and in how effective your furnaces are at keeping your home cozy and comfortable. A poorly-designed duct system will not only cause your energy bills to spike, but may also pose hazard to you and your family’s health as it distributes polluted air indoors.

The duct system can be made out of sheet, fiber glass duct board, insulated plastic or cloth. But a well-designed duct system has the following characteristics:

  • Conditioned air is delivered properly throughout your home at maximum efficiency and capacity. Your HVAC system’s volume-carrying capacity of the return air must equal that of the supply air. If it is not, a pressure imbalance will created and this will cause discomfort as well as energy wastage.img-1
  • It doesn’t make so much noise that it becomes bothersome. Pressure imbalance may cause excessive system pressure, causing the worrisome noises. Adjustments have to be made in furnaces fan size, duct size and duct mountings.
  • The duct system is well-supported, thus avoiding dislocation or damage, and ensuring that the system’s efficiency remains top-notch.
  • Is easy to maintain with adequate clearances provided on all sides of the equipment to allow easy access for periodic maintenance. Maintenance work should be done routinely as well to ensure maximum system efficiency.

We all want to make sure we choose the best professionals for the job, and if your HVAC professional is giving you doubts, then maybe you’re wondering if you actually chose the right person for the job. Now that you’ve made the choice of who is going to do your furnace installation, it’s a little hard to go back. However, if you haven’t chosen yet, now’s a good time to get some research done to make sure you choose the right professional.

Good Contractors are Flexible

Not only should a contractor be honest about what the going price is on an item and, in addition, have fair and reasonable rates, they should be flexible about payment plans. Obviously, having a furnace installation done at a deficit is something you shouldn’t expect, but a contractor shouldn’t be charging hundreds more simply because they are located in a certain area, and they shouldn’t take advantage of a customer’s lack of knowledge about how much something actually costs to install.

Good Contractors Have Faired the Weather for Longer

Just because a contractor hasn’t been around for a while doesn’t mean that they aren’t doing quality work, but those who have seen their fair share of troubling times and have still managed to pull through are usually those who give quality care to their customers. If they are well-loved, recommended, and established in a community, contractors often stick around doing furnace installations longer than a typical Joe would. Take the time to track down these kinds of people.

Consider the Brand You Want to Install

Did you research your brands when you decided that it’s time to schedule an installation? Generally speaking, contractors vouch for and install a certain brand. Most of the time, this is done so the contractor has specific knowledge of the product that they are installing because they have received guidance from the manufacturer on the product. Here at Distinct Heating and Cooling, we proudly support York products because of their quality and financial friendliness.

Look for a contractor that’s willing to go above and beyond normal standards for your installation, and don’t just settle for someone who may not do the job you want done correctly. Do your research, and don’t hesitate to call us if you need advice, more information about York products, or an installation.
