Best Calgary Furnaces

Is there such a thing? What to look for:

  • Can it be repaired quickly? When purchasing a new furnace, you want to be sure local Calgary furnace contractors are trained to service the new furnace in the event of a breakdown. You may pay less for a furnace that seems as good as a more popular brand, but you will most certainly pay more for repairs if a contractor cannot be found to service and repair or even get repair parts when needed.
  • What are the trouble reports on the model you are interested in? Thanks to the internet, you can easily do a search for the brand and model you are interested in to see if any other consumers have had serious issues with their purchases. Check blogs, remember, try and distinguish if the problems identified are contractor related or product related.
  • What is the warranty like for the brand name and model you are purchasing? Some manufactures have a "manufactures warranty" that will cover parts and labor, some will only cover parts and not labor, some manufactures may require you to submit the parts for a rebate, meaning you will have to pay the repair contractor and then submit the parts for a rebate.
  • Will your new furnace be given manufactures support? Manufactures support can be a life saver when faced with a warranty issue, or a repair after the warranty is expired. We suggest that you research the furnace manufactures website for support in your province and city. On-line availability of important literature such as owner’s manuals will help keep the cost of ownership of your new furnace low.
