Furnace Installation

Every home in this country needs a furnace and in Edmonton, a furnace is a necessity. Ensure that the furnace in your new home is working properly, or consider updating it to a new and efficient furnace. Temperatures can drop considerably in the winter and a properly functioning, efficient furnace is very important. At Caliber Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd, we provide all you need to successfully install or replace a furnace in your home.

 

Heat Assessment

When you first reach out to us, our technician visits the location. A heat assessment is carried out to determine your needs. The best type of furnace for you depends on the size of your home, your budget and the energy rating. Any special requirements are also considered.

There is a wide range of furnaces to choose from and choosing the right one for your home does not need to be complicated. We can help.

 

Furnace Installation

Once a furnace is selected, our technician begins the process of installation. Many furnaces experience problems later because the furnace installation was not done properly. Our technician has training and experience in installing the furnace right the first time.

 

Testing

When the furnace is installed, our technician conducts tests to ensure that it works properly. This includes checking that the furnace responds to the thermostat as it should. Our technician will show you, the customer, how to operate the furnace and answer any of your questions.

 

Choosing the Right Furnace

We take special care to answer any of your questions and provide you with the information needed to choose the right furnace for your home and family.

 

Fuel Choice

The type of fuel that you prefer makes an impact on the choice of the furnace. We recommend either an electric or natural gas furnace. You should also have the option of liquefied propane (LP) and even coal, which we do not recommend. They are not easy of use, they are costly and coal is not easily available.

 

Size

A furnace that is too small won’t heat your home efficiently, while a large furnace is an unnecessary expense and may not fit into the required space.
It is necessary to calculate the load that is required. BTU, or British Thermal Unit, indicates the ability of the furnace system to heat a specific area. Common sizes are 40,000, 50,000, 60,000, 80,000, and 100,000 BTU.

To decide the right size, we have to take into account the square footage of the home.

 

Energy Rating

The better the energy rating, the more fuel efficient the furnace will be. The energy rating follows AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency). AFUE ratings can vary from 60% – 90%.

 

Budget

The biggest deciding factor for choosing the furnace is how much you are willing to spend. The size, energy rating and brand you choose will depend on your price point.

With Caliber Heating & Air Conditioning, you can be sure that you have the right furnace installed for you.

Maintenance & Repair

We also offer maintenance and repair services to ensure that your furnace is cleaned and checked for any problems regularly, and always operating efficiently. Your furnace can last many years with proper maintenance and timely repairs.
