At Ignite Heating and Air Conditioning Ltd. we want to help you do that. With affordable home improvements such as a installing a new high efficiency furnace and new central air conditioning, the value of your home could increase.

Will it make a difference?

Consider replacing your older furnace. With a new high efficiency furnace you could save substantial amounts on your monthly gas bill. To better understand the AFUE rating on furnaces, read our previous blog post. HVAC technology has changed dramatically over the past few years. For example, gas furnaces have become more efficient (95%+) in terms of performance, functionality, and energy consumption. A new furnace can save you a lot of money each year.

In addition, a new air conditioner can keep you cool during the hot Alberta summer months. If you already have central air conditioning, the unit has a life span of about 20 years. If you air conditioner is 12 years old, your air conditioning unit is passing its mid-life point. Even if your air conditioner is only 10 years old, you may save 20-40 percent of your cooling energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model.

HVAC Decisions Are Tough

Your furnace is one of the most important pieces of equipment in your home, especially during the winter. Unfortunately, most people don’t think about their home heating system until a problem occurs. And then when faced with urgent HVAC decisions they have not idea where to turn! Do you have confidence in yourself to take on the complicated repairs as a weekend DIY project? Are you willing to risk it or spend your whole weekend trying to do the repairs yourself? You could make the problem worse or put your loved ones in danger, especially during these cold winter months. If you are faced with tough HVAC decisions, we can help you figure out who to call.

Why An HVAC Repair Specialist?

Consider an experienced licensed HVAC contractor that has been doing air conditioner and heating system repairs for years in your community. We have seen almost all of the possible problems that can happen. Usually we only need to check out the system for a couple minutes before we have an idea of what is wrong. If you do the job yourself there is a very distinct possibility that you will misdiagnose the problem and waste a lot of of time fixing something that is not broken. Can you really trust the person on YouTube to know what is wrong with your HVAC system? Although some videos may help you with simple things like how to change your furnace filter, most repairs will be out of the scope of what can be covered in a video. Make sure you hire someone who can diagnose and repair your problem the right way.

Of course, you might not have the proper tools and equipment to fix your furnace or air conditioner because these tools are not found in the average person’s toolbox. HVAC repairs need to be done by professional technicians with specialized equipment and tools. We stock many parts in our mobile vans and carry the necessary tools to get the job done. If we don’t have the correct part we will source it and get it as soon as possible. Your HVAC decision can be made easier if you choose someone with the right tools and equipment to get the job done right.

Choose The Best Furnace For Your Home

It’s important for Canadians to choose the best furnace for their home. Prepare for winter with the right home heating system and have it properly installed and maintained. Let’s look at some important elements to consider when choosing the best furnace for your home.

Choose The Best Furnace by AFUE

To better understand how furnaces are measured for efficiency, you need to know what AFUE stands for. AFUE is the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating. It works much like the miles-per-gallon rating on a car – the higher the rating, the lower the fuel costs. A higher annual fuel utilization efficiency means more comfort for every dollar spent. If a furnace is 25 years old or older, it could have a rating as low as 55% to 65% AFUE. For instance, if a furnace has an AFUE rating of 80, then it means that 80% of the fuel it consumes will be used as heat, and 20% will be completely wasted as exhaust. So, the higher the AFUE, the better!

higher AFUE = greater energy savings

Of course, AFUE is not the only thing to consider when choosing the best furnace for your home. Cost of maintenance, operating cost, size and your personal home heating needs all influence your decision. Some of the popular types of furnaces in Canada include gas, electric and propane. Gas furnaces are the most common and that is what most people select due to their features: safety, reliability and of course, efficiency. HVAC technology has changed dramatically over the past few years. For example, gas furnaces have become more efficient (95%+) in terms of performance, functionality, and energy consumption.

How do you choose the best furnace for your home?

With so many options to choose from, why would you choose a Napoleon furnace? With superior design and engineering, a Napoleon furnace provides safe, reliable and efficient heat to any home. It is one of the most reliable gas furnaces on the market.

Choose Canadian

made in Canada, Napoleon is a proud Canadian company, engineered and designed by Canadians for Canadian climates

Did you know that Napoleon furnaces are engineered and designed by Canadians specifically for Canadian climates. Napoleon products are manufactured in Barrie, Ontario. Napoleon was also selected as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies!

Choose Clean Air

Napoleon offers the option of installing a HomeShield UV lamp directly into the cabinet of the furnace. This allows the air passing through the furnace to be purified with HomeShield’s UV technology before it circulates through your home. HomeShield uses chemical free, ultra-violet light to intercept airborne pathogens like allergens and dust mites. It halts bacterial growth from reoccurring and helps to maintain healthy air in your home. Air quality is one of the top things to consider when you choose the best furnace for your needs.

Choose Quietness

With Napoleon’s Whisper Quiet™ operation the EnerSave Plus and EnerSave Pro motors will ‘soft start’ & ‘soft stop’ gradually changing speed to reduce the noise created by conventional furnace motors.

Choose Wifi

The Napoleon’s 9600 furnace is compatible with smart thermostat technology. Easily paired with a wide variety of wifi-enabled thermostats and control boards, the 9600 is compatible with your home and is future ready. Comfort controls at your fingertips from wherever you are.

Choose Variable Speed Technology

Napoleon’s motors use variable speed technology, creating a two stage furnace. A two-stage furnace runs longer at lower capacity – 60% versus 100%. The blower runs at 60% on first stage for most of the year and reduces electrical consumption by up to 80% over conventional blower motors. Therefore, this feature saves you fuel and money while delivering even and consistent heat to your home.

Choose the Best Furnace: NAPOLEON

Are you ready to upgrade your existing home heating system or replace your old furnace? Is it time to get rid of your old, inefficient furnace and choose a Napoleon furnace? Consult an HVAC professional at Ignite Heating to help you choose the right furnace for your home. Models range from 40,000 BTU’s up to 120,000 BTU’s. We can help you determine which Napoleon furnace is the best for your needs.

Home Heating Emergency!

Congratulations, you survived the latest Alberta cold snap! Did your home heating system struggle? Could your furnace keep your home nice and warm? Did you suffer from a home heating emergency? Let’s look at the three most common HVAC heating emergencies that you might want to avoid next time we get a burst of cold Alberta winter weather.

⚠️ Emergency #1: Plugged Air Intake Vent

To work properly, your furnace needs adequate airflow. If your furnace is having problems starting, or seems to be trying to start but can’t, a blocked airflow from the intake pipe could be the culprit. Even if you aren’t having trouble with your furnace, it’s a good idea to check your intake before the cold weather arrives. Most often snow and ice are the typical causes for blocked air intake vents, and it’s a common reason to cause your furnace to stop running. Having a properly installed fresh air intake is the first step to improving your home’s indoor air quality. We suggest you double check that your fresh air intake is clean and free of snow and ice to keep your furnace running smoothly all winter.

⚠️ Emergency #2: Dirty Furnace Filter

How long has it been since you last changed your furnace filter? Replacing your filter on a regular schedule will keep your furnace working at it’s optimal performance. A clean air filter not only improves your indoor air quality, but it can also improve your heating and cooling system’s airflow and efficiency. This can help lower your utility bill and extend the life of your equipment. If your filter gets too dirty, it can block the return air flow to the furnace. It’s like putting a blanket over your head and asking you to breath normally! So change your filter on a schedule (hint: we recommend changing your filter every 3 months or as recommended by your equipment manufacturer manual) to keep your furnace running smoothly.

⚠️ Emergency #3: Failing Flame Sensor

No heat at all – during extreme winter weather this is the most troublesome home heating emergency! It can be alarming to wake up to no heat in your home. With the temperature dropping to dangerous levels at night this is definitely something you should avoid to keep your family safe and warm.

If your furnace keeps shutting down and cannot provide heat to the entire house, it may be because your flame sensor is failing. There are three signs of a bad flame sensor. First, the furnace starts working but then quickly shuts down – also known as “short cycling”. Second, there could be cracks in the porcelain of the flame sensor which can cause it to quit working properly. Finally, if the flame sensor is corroded or needs cleaning it could stop functioning all together.

How Can You Avoid A Home Heating Emergency?
