The Comfort Group team has performed hundreds of furnace installations for Parksville residents over the years, which means we know exactly what we’re doing. When you hire us for your furnace installation, a fully certified and licensed technician will arrive at your home to perform the installation. They will begin by removing the existing furnace. (In order to install the new furnace, the old one first has to be removed.) Once the old furnace is gone, the new one will be safely positioned and connected to your duct system. The connection will seal the connection and then test the furnace to ensure it’s working properly. Your Comfort Group technician won’t leave until your furnace is up and running and functioning as it should be. Please note that furnace installations can take several hours to complete. Your technician will provide you with an estimated timeline when they arrive.
Any home that has one or more fuel-burning heaters, appliances, or fireplaces must have a carbon monoxide alarm. In essence, if your home has a furnace, water heater, space heater, or oven, it should be equipped with a carbon monoxide detector.
When deciding whether to repair or replace a furnace that has stopped working, the first factor to consider is the age of the furnace. Most furnaces are built to last between 10 and 20 years, so if you’ve had your furnace for over a decade, it might be time to replace it. Old furnaces are more prone to issues, such as turning off unexpectedly. Even when they are functioning, they likely aren’t very energy efficient or working as optimally as they could be. If your furnace is old and frequently in need of repairs, replacing it could save you money down the line, making it the wiser decision. However, if your furnace is relatively new and/or the issue can be repaired with relative ease and inexpensively, then you may wish to simply repair it and replace it in the future. If you aren’t sure whether your furnace should be replaced, contact The Comfort Group. We can send a technician to our home to assess your furnace and offer their professional opinion.
Telltale signs that you need a new furnace include a buzzing or rattling sound coming from the system, 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 the system turning off unexpectedly. To confirm whether you need a new furnace, get in touch with The Comfort Group. We can perform a maintenance service on your furnace to determine its condition. From there, we can offer our professional opinion on whether it’s worth repairing or replacing. In addition, if you ever have a heating emergency, such as a furnace that stops working in the middle of winter, call our 24/7 emergency hotline and we’ll send a technician to your home in a matter of hours.
BTU stands for British thermal unit, and it is a unit of heat. Specifically, a BTU is the amount of heat required to increase the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. Furnace outputs are measured in BTUs. When buying a new furnace for your home, you'll need to choose a furnace with the optimal output to effectively heat your home. For example, a 1,500 square foot property in Parksville requires a furnace with a minimum output of 40,000 BTUs and a maximum output of 90,000 BTUs.
You can turn your furnace on whenever you find the temperature in your home uncomfortably cold. There is no set date or time of year in which you must wait to turn your furnace on. You may end up turning your furnace on as early as September or as late as November. It all depends on your personal preferences and the weather patterns in the area.
