Why We Remember

Remembrance Day is a day in which we remember all those who fought and died in the line of duty to keep us free.

November 11th, Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed by Canadians and members of the Commonwealth since the end of the First World War. A day in which we remember all those who fought and died in the line of duty to keep us free. Every year on November 11th, Canadians pause in a moment of silence and flags are lowered to honour and remember more than 2 million Canadians who have served, and continue to serve, Canada during times of war, conflict, and peace.

Remembrance Day was first observed in 1919 throughout the British Commonwealth and was originally called Armistice Day. Until 1930, Armistice Day was held on the Monday of the week in which November 11 fell In 1931 a bill was introduced to observe Armistice Day only on November 11th, and to change the name to Remembrance Day. The first Remembrance Day was observed on November 11, 1931.

Every year on November 11th, the official Canadian national ceremonies are held at the National War Memorial in Ottawa, Ontario. A service is held and armed services representatives lay down wreaths. Church, school and community services are held across Canada, which often include the playing of “The Last Post”, a reading of “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae, and two minutes of silence at 11:00am.

The most well known symbol associated with Remembrance Day is the poppy due to the poem “In Flanders Fields” by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. At first real poppies were worn, but now people wear replica poppies. The bright red colour symbolizes the blood spilled in the wars. By remembering the service and sacrifice of those Canadians who served in the wars, we recognize the freedom that they fought to preserve. We must take time today to remember that sacrifice.

Why a poppy? Watch “In Flanders Fields” by John McCrae.

5 reasons why we install Napoleon furnaces

1) 100% Canadian

Napoleon products are made in over 1,200,000 square feet of manufacturing space in Barrie, Ontario. Napoleon is the only furnace and air conditioner to be made 100% in Canada.

2) Competitive Warranty Included.

Napoleon furnaces have a Lifetime Heat Exchangers Limited Warranty. This means Napoleon will replace the heat exchangers if they fail during the owner’s lifetime

Napoleon furnaces also come with:

  • 10 Year Unit Replacement Heat Exchanger Limited Warranty: Napoleon will replace the whole furnace if the heat exchangers fail within the first 10 years (this is upgraded to 15 years for the 9700 Series Furnace) 
  • 10 Year Parts Limited Warranty: Napoleon will replace the part if it fails within the first 10 years
  • At Ignite we also provide a 10 year labour warranty on the Napoleon Furnace we install.

3) Increased Efficiency

The 9700 and 9600 series furnaces are a two-stage furnace, which allows for longer calls at 60% of full capacity – this helps to eliminate “cool spots” in your house as there is more warm air moving in your house for a longer period of time.

Napoleon furnaces come with a variable speed blower which increases the amount of warm air circulating through the ducting system to allow hot air to mix with cold air to ensure that there is no cold air coming out of your supply ducts.

Napoleon furnaces have an Electronically Commutated Motor (ECM) blower motor will save over 80% in energy cost over your PSC (Permanent Split Capacitor) when running your furnace fan.

 4) Innovative Design

Napoleon’s 9700 series furnace has multiple patents that provide standard features none of the current furnace makers offer:

  • Vortex turbulator heat exchanger: maximizes the flue gases time in the heat exchanger and is 100*F hotter than a conventional heat exchanger. 
  • Stainless Steel Heat Exchanger to last longer
  • SureView Burner System: offers a unique view of the flames in operation.
  • Built in LED lights that automatically turn on when the blower door is opened.
  • Ultra Violet Light Air Purifier: built in to the furnace to improve air quality

5) Competitive Pricing

Napoleon is very competitively priced compared to similar alternatives – where many other manufacturers offer the two-stage as an upgrade this is standard in the Napoleon 9600 and 9700 Series.
