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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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%.
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.

But a time may come when installing a new thermostat becomes essential. At Caliber Residential and Heating Ltd., you will find a team of specialist who would install the new thermostat in your residence.

Damage to the Air Conditioner
A thermostat can damage the air conditioner even due to a minor fault in the thermostat operation. A fault thermostat can make the air conditioner switch on and off quite often. This puts an extra load on the air conditioner. Installing a new thermostat solves this problem.
Increased Power Bills
A sudden spike in your power bill could be caused by the thermostat. The extra stress on the HVAC system means that it is consuming more power. The system begins to run in short cycles and becomes less effective.
If you feel that the temperature is too high and then it drops to a sudden low, this is a sign that there is a problem with the thermostat. The fluctuations in the room temperature often can affect the working of the furnace system as well.
If your system breaks down frequently, then you should consider changing the thermostat. It is better to install a new thermostat rather than repairing the system repeatedly, which will only increase the cost.
When you get your system serviced, our HVAC technician will check your thermostat and advise you if you need to replace it.

The clean air, therefore, prevents people from getting allergy or asthma and other breathing problems.
