An HVAC Contractor – Your Heating & Cooling Expert

Choosing an HVAC contractor can be a daunting task. If you work with the right company, then the process of repairing your HVAC unit can be a smooth and effortless process. Did you know that your energy efficiency can suffer if your HVAC system isn’t installed properly? And if you choose the wrong HVAC company to repair your system, you could end up with an “HVAC Wall of Shame” story to tell your friends and neighbours at the next block party (who wants that?!).

How To Choose The Right HVAC Contractor
How To Choose The Right HVAC Contractor

Whether your home’s heating and/or cooling system is in need of routine maintenance, emergency repairs or a total replacement, selecting a qualified HVAC contractor is an important decision! To ensure you hire a qualified professional that best fits your job, here are a few simple tips to help you find the best HVAC contractor for your needs.

Choose The Right HVAC Contractor With These 5 Simple Tips:

HVAC Contractor Selection

Tip #1 Get A Referral

Ask neighbors, friends, and family for referrals for reliable HVAC contractors in your area. Referrals can give a homeowner insight as to the type of experience they can expect from a particular contractor.

Tip #2 Read Reviews

A quick glance at the number of review stars can often be misleading. Be sure to read the written comments and look for HVAC contractors with a good reputation for value, quality and customer service. Read Ignite Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd. reviews on Google here! We also have great reviews on Yelp and Facebook!

Tip #3 Locate An Authorized Dealer

If you’re looking at a particular brand of furnace, check out the manufacturer’s website for recommendations of a local dealer and/or HVAC contractor in your area. For Napoleon products, search here to find an authorized dealer in your area. Ignite Heating is an authorized dealer of Napoleon products!

Tip #4 Look At Reliability

Check out how long the HVAC Contractor has been in business. If a company has been around for a long period of time, it usually indicates that they are well established, familiar with their service area, knowledgeable about the needs of their client base, and have very capable and skilled technicians with many years of experience. Research the history of the contractor and the business.

Tip #5 Don’t Always Go With The Lowest Bid

Sometimes, a lower price doesn’t always mean it should be your first choice. Paying a little bit more will often result in better equipment and service from your chosen company. If there are huge discrepancies in price from one contractor to another, ask them why their prices are set that way. For example, higher prices can indicate better quality of equipment, training of technicians, and above average maintenance agreements.

  • review rating 5  We called at 6pm with our issue. Ignite dropped off the part we needed by 8pm (diagnosed issue over the phone/photos msg'd) and I was able to install/have my furnace working 5 minutes later. Invoice in hand and paid. Perfect.

  • review rating 5  We contacted ignite heating to replace a bathroom fan, replace a thermostat. and do a general check of the furnace in our 1950's bungalow. After a bit of back and forth on scheduling the team that arrived was great. Very efficient and courteous they completed all the jobs and swept/vacuumed after themselves. We really appreciated that they took us through the different aspects of our furnace and what each of the tests were for and specifics of the results. We would use them for any future heating needs.

  • review rating 5  My furnace stopped working last night during the cold snap, and I called Ignite Heating very early on a Saturday morning. They answered my call and the lead technician called me back within 20 minutes. He was able to diagnose the problem over the phone and patiently walked me through the troubleshooting. Now my furnace is up and running again. Great response time and customer service - I will be using them for all my heating + AC needs!

HVAC New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year from Ignite Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd. Let us help you meet your HVAC New Year's resolutions in 2020!
Call Ignite Heating & Air Conditioning in 2020 for all your HVAC needs.

Are you a member of the “Good Intentions New Year’s Resolution Club”? Well, actually that’s not a real thing – but maybe you make New Year’s resolutions but never follow through with them past January 2nd? Many people do that – so you are not alone! Maybe you need to make your resolutions more simple so they are more attainable in 2020? Ignite Heating & Air Conditioning can help your HVAC New Year’s resolutions become a reality. Here are a few of the top New Year’s resolutions – HVAC version:

HVAC New Year’s Resolution #1:

Get (Your Furnace) In Tip-Top Shape

Getting in shape, losing weight or exercising more are some of the top Canadian New Year’s resolutions. Over 54% of Canadians want to improve their physical well-being, so you are not alone if this is your goal for 2020. However, when it comes to your home heating and cooling system, this resolution can apply as well. If your furnace is out of shape, huffing and puffing, or old and sluggish it is definitely time for a furnace clean & check! This annual check-up can get your furnace back in tip-top condition and keep it running smoothly throughout the new year. Or maybe you need a new furnace? Out with the old, in with the new! Replacing your furnace with a new Napoleon high-efficiency gas furnace could be the best decision you make for your home all year. Contact us today for a FREE QUOTE to see how this dream can become a reality in the New Year for your home.

HVAC New Year’s Resolution #2:

Reduce Your Environmental Footprint

If everyone committed to this resolution, our world would thank us at the end of the year. This may seem a bit daunting at first, but there are simple ways in which you can reduce your personal environmental footprint. By implementing a few small changes you can make a BIG difference. How about requesting paperless billing from your gas or electric company? Maybe recycle more – or commit to buying products in compostable or recyclable packaging? What about getting a more energy efficient furnace or air-conditioner for your home? A new high-efficiency heating or cooling unit could save you hundreds of dollars on your utility bills each month! Did you know that Napoleon’s EnerSave ECM motor reduces electrical consumption by up to 80% over conventional blower motors? Now, that’s a change that our environment will thank us for!

HVAC New Year’s Resolution #3:

Save More Money On Your Heating Bill

If your furnace or heating system is more than 10 years old, it probably has an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) of 55-70%. Due to this lower AFUE, your heating unit is not very efficient and is costing you way more money each month. As the furnace ages, it need to run longer to maintain the same amount of heat which causes your gas and electric bills to increase steadily, year after year. With regular maintenance by a certified HVAC technician, you can help increase the life of your home heating system. If your furnace is nearing the end of its life, we can help you choose the right new high-efficiency furnace with an AFUE of 95-97%…and that can save you a LOT of money in 2020.

If you’re thinking about a new furnace for 2020, give us a call. Or if your furnace needs a clean & check, we can do that as well. Our professional HVAC technicians can help you meet your HVAC New Year’s resolutions in 2020. Your comfort is our concern! Call us at (780) 919-4916 or contact us today.

Is Your Furnace Due For An Oil Change?


We recently shared about the purpose of Maintenance Clubs in the September edition of Neighbours Around the Park, a local magazine here sent to acreages in Sherwood Park. We wanted we’d share an excerpt here to help you out!


Is Your Furnace Due For an Oil Change?

If you are not a member of a Furnace Maintenance Club, you may wonder, “Should I join a Maintenance Club? Will it save me money?” The short answer is yes. For the longer answer, let me explain what a Maintenance Club is and just exactly how it saves you time and money. 

I’m often asked what a homeowner can do to make their furnace last, and my answer is always the same… you need to maintain your furnace! Just like any other aspect of home ownership, your furnace requires annual tune-ups to keep it running smoothly and reliably. Your yard is maintained weekly with grass cutting and annual aeration, your vehicle gets regular oil changes and other recommended maintenance. When it comes to your furnace, most manufacturers strongly recommend annual maintenance, and in some cases, your warranty may even require it.  

By joining a maintenance club, you are ensuring annual maintenance on your furnace takes place. 

Maintenance Clubs are designed to help you, the homeowner, keep your furnace operating efficiently during the heating season. A basic contract usually includes a checkup and tune-up of your heating system at the start of the winter and air conditioning system before summer. You can also find contracts that provide discounts on parts and other services as well as priority treatment for emergency service, which can save you time and discomfort when your furnace fails in the freezing cold. 

Joining a Maintenance Club saves you money in the long-term.

Hiring a qualified technician to inspect your system on an annual basis also means you can save money as issues can be identified while they are still small and easy to fix, rather than waiting until they damage your system or become expensive. While there is no such thing as an absolute guarantee, annual maintenance allows technicians to spot problems that may be small now but that could become serious if left untreated. Annual furnace maintenance saves you money by keeping your furnace operating efficiently, which impacts your energy bills, fewer repairs, reduced risk of a surprise breakdown – which is often costly when it requires an after-hours service call, and by helping to prolong the life of your equipment. For those with a newly installed furnace, this means you too, because skipping your annual furnace maintenance could result in a lapse in your manufacturer’s warranty, which will cost you more money to repair it on your own. 

Joining a Maintenance Club saves you time.

When you join most Maintenance Clubs, you don’t have to remember to schedule your furnace tune-up, as the company takes over keeping track of your maintenance schedule, and in some cases even when to change your furnace filter. You’ll never miss an annual tune-up and you never even have to think about it. Most Maintenance Clubs also provide their members with additional bonuses such as special discounts on repairs and special discounts on system replacements or upgrades.
