The Comfort Group is the leading provider of heating services in Nanaimo. We are experts in a wide variety of heating systems, including furnaces, heat pumps, and tankless water heaters. No matter your concern, The Comfort Group can help.
When you hire The Comfort Group for your Nanaimo furnace installation, you can rest easy knowing a certified technician will complete the service from start to finish. When you contact us about your installation, we will schedule a time to install your furnace and communicate with you on the day of the appointment. Upon arrival, your licensed technician will start by removing the old furnace (to make room for the new furnace, the old one must be removed first). Once the old furnace is removed, the new one will be safely positioned and connected to your duct system. After the connection is sealed, the technician will test the furnace to ensure it’s working properly. Your Comfort Group technician won’t leave until your furnace is up and running. Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask. We are always here. Please note that furnace installations typically take a few hours to complete. Your technician can provide you with a rough timeline when they arrive.
There are three main kinds of furnaces: natural gas furnaces, propane furnaces, and oil furnaces. Depending on which kind you have, the burning gas, propane, or oil generates heat in the furnace’s burner. The heat generated then passes through a heat exchanger, which makes it hot. From there, air from the home’s ductwork is blown over the heat exchanger, propelling warm air out the vents in your home.
The Comfort Group is always happy to help Parksville residents find the right furnaces for their homes. When purchasing a new furnace, we recommend basing your decision on the following factors: energy efficiency, capacity, maintenance requirements, noise level, cost, and thermostat compatibility. Comparing models based on these six factors can help narrow down your search so that you can find a furnace that suits your home and budget. For example, if you have a young baby at home, you may wish to choose a unit that is known for operating quietly. Alternatively, if you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, choosing an energy-efficient system with a SEER rating of 15 or above may be important to you. Ultimately, which furnace you buy is entirely your decision. But if you want our expert advice on the right furnace for your home, don’t hesitate to get in touch. The Comfort Group is always happy to help.
There comes a point when many homeowners have to decide whether to replace or repair their furnaces. This moment typically happens as the furnace gets older. Furnaces are designed to last between 10 and 20 years, and as they age, they become less energy efficient and are more prone to breaking down. If your furnace is over a decade old and is exhibiting some of the telltale signs that it’s nearing the end of its life, it might be time to replace it. Some of these signs include heating rooms unevenly, a sudden or unexpected rise in your utility bills during the winter months, a buzzing or rattling sound coming from the unit, or visible rust or cracks on the unit’s surface. If these signs sound familiar, then it’s likely time to consider buying a new furnace. Ultimately, if you aren’t sure whether your furnace should be replaced, schedule a maintenance service with The Comfort Group. We will send a fully certified and licensed technician to your home to assess your furnace and offer their opinion on whether it should be replaced or repaired.
Parksville homeowners can turn their heating systems on whenever they start to feel cold in their homes. The World Health Organization lists the optimal indoor temperature as between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius. So if the temperature in your home drops below 18 degrees and you find it uncomfortably cold, it might be time to turn the heat on. Depending on the weather and your personal preferences, this could mean turning on your heat as early as September or as late as November.
There are a few ways to tell if your furnace is on the fritz. A buzzing or rattling sound coming from the furnace, visible rust or cracks on the system’s surface, your furnace only blowing cool air, humidity levels that are off in your home, rooms heating unevenly, an unexpected rise in your utility bills, or your furnace turning off unexpectedly are all signs that your furnace isn’t functioning as it should be. If you suspect there’s an issue with your furnace, contact The Comfort Group as soon as possible. We are experts in heating systems and can get to the root of the issue in no time. We also offer 24/7 emergency services, so don’t hesitate to call us, day or night, weekday or weekend.

"An absolutely excellent experience with The Comfort Group from Parksville, BC. Very professional overall excellent experience with the installation of our new Lennox mini split heat pump system. The installation was on time as promised and with no surprises. All of the installers were very courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and clearly all were very experienced with their work. I can absolutely recommend The Comfort Group for sales and installation."
"This company installed a heat pump and modified my oil furnace as secondary heat after I had been told by another well known company that the furnace could not be modified as it was too old, at ten years! I was impressed with the tidy and speedy installation .We have been delighted with the Heat-pump and especially the running costs. Over the last two years of operation we have averaged $2.51 a day for heating/cooling our 2000 sq.ft. home 24/7."
