Summer is the Time to Consider Installing a High Efficiency Furnace in Your Home

We're all dealing with rising energy costs; whether it's gas for the car or the house, or hydro to keep the lights on and the air conditioning going, energy bills keep growing. There isn't much we can do except investigate new ways to save money by investing in our homes. A high efficiency furnace is one of the wisest investments a homeowner can make.

Your furnace does more than heat your water and home; if it's older and not properly maintained, it can siphon money out of your pocket without you even realizing it. A furnace past its prime is the most inefficient appliance in your home. Today's high efficiency furnaces are 98 percent more efficient than models that were available 10 years ago. Now that summer is here, it's time to take stock of your energy costs and think about investing in a new furnace, before winter returns to wallop Toronto with freezing temperatures and vicious storms.

The experts at Heating Ontario have been spending their summers consulting with Toronto homeowners, showing them how to save money on their heating bills, since 1987. If you've been thinking about replacing your furnace, there is no better time to do it than when you're not using it. We come to your home and evaluate your situation and recommend the furnace that is right for your needs. We install and maintain all the top brands, including Carrier, Amana, Goodman and Lennox. Plus, you can count on Heating Ontario for yearly maintenance and repairs to ensure your furnace is running at peak efficiency all year round.

Take care of your furnace issues now, while there is still plenty of summer left. A smart homeowner is a proactive homeowner, and there is no better way to prepare for the coming winter than to make sure your furnace is operating as it should. Invest in your home, and you will reap the benefits of smaller energy bills and more money to spend on the things you and your family enjoy.

Consider a Tankless Water Heater to Save Money on Energy Costs at Home

Having a Tankless Water Heater in your Toronto home is a sure-fire way to save money on energy costs. Traditional hot water heaters are acknowledged to be an energy drain, particularly because they keep a stand-by supply of hot water at all times. You're not always using hot water, correct? Than why not have hot water only when you need it? A tankless water heater is the perfect solution for cutting energy costs, as well as "greening" you home by saving that energy you'll no longer be paying for.

During the summer months, the experts at Heating Ontario are offering their consulting services to homeowners to help them determine whether or not a Tankless Water Heater is right for their homes. Depending on the size and the amenities in your home, we can show you how much energy you will save by installing a whole-house tankless hot water system, or smaller units that will heat water for specific areas of your home. For example, if you have a hot tub or an in-ground pool (or both!), a dedicated tankless water heater could save you a significant amount of money. If you prefer to run your dishwasher and washing machine without the worry of draining hot water from your tank, you can also install dedicated units for just those appliances. Or, if you want the convenience of having hot water throughout your house, any time day or night, regardless of whether or not your appliances are running, you could certainly invest in a unit that services your entire home. Our heating contractors in Toronto are here to help you make the choices that are right for you and your family.

Heating Ontario proudly installs and services Tankless Water Heaters from the top brands in the industry. Each brand has features that work in almost any home, and provide both energy efficiency and environmental consciousness to homeowners who want to live a "greener" lifestyle by using less energy. It's clear that we all must pitch in to do our part to help save the environment; installing a tankless water heater is a win-win because it saves you money and uses less of our precious natural resources. Plus, you could even be eligible for a tax credit!

If I Have an Electric Furnace, Why am I Paying High Prices for Gas?

Energy costs are going to keep rising, regardless of whether you are paying for gas, electricity, or both. Chances are, if you have both types of services in your home, you're seeing regular increases in rates that are eating a bigger and bigger hole in your family's budget.

The best way to contend with rising energy costs is to have an energy analysis performed on your home. Make sure all your appliances are in good repair and aren't using more energy than necessary. If you can, upgrade your appliances to energy efficient models that use considerably less energy than the older models you currently have. Wash your clothes in cold water and keep your thermostat at a lower temperature you are comfortable with.

The main appliance you should always ensure is in good working order is your furnace. Whether it is electric or gas powered furnace, an old or ill-maintained furnace will use more energy if it is not operating properly. The experts at Heating Ontario can assess your furnace and determine if it can be repaired to perform more efficiently, or needs to be replaced. We understand that a new furnace is a big expense, but the right furnace can save you money in the long run. Today's high efficiency furnace models will save you more than you think on your energy bills, keeping your home comfortable without making you feel like you're throwing money out of open windows.

Get in touch with us to schedule an energy analysis right now. The sooner you determine what needs fixing or replacing, the less you'll be paying for hydro and gas. Our representatives are standing by to help you save money!

Furnace maintenance is key to keeping your home's furnace in peak condition, especially if you have an older unit that might be in need of some comprehensive servicing or even replacement. Heating Ontario's expert technicians believe in proactive maintenance, rather than waiting for a small problem to evolve into a full-blown crisis. Even in the height of summer, you never want to find yourself without an adequate supply of hot water for laundry and showers.

Start planning now to enjoy a carefree summer season by booking your appointment to have your furnace serviced.

Chances are, you'll be rewarded with a lower gas or hydro bill, so you'll be able to "chill" a bit more on those sizzling summer days.

Is it Time to Install a Tankless Water Heater?

Tired of shivering halfway through your shower? If you're thinking of replacing your conventional hot water heater, it might be time to consider a tankless hot water heater. Not only will you have hot water on-demand whenever you need it, you'll save on energy costs, too. With prices consistently rising, you'll have all the hot water you'll ever need, and more money in your pocket.

Traditional hot water heaters are an energy drain because they're constantly working to keep water heated even when its not in use. With a tankless hot water heater, your water is heated only when you want it, eliminating that "stand-by" supply that hits you right in the wallet. Depending on how many units you install, you can save up to 50% on your energy costs by using tankless water heaters. That means, if you have a large household that uses more than 86 gallons of water per day, installing multiple tankless water heaters could drastically reduce your gas or electric usage. Plus, you can have consistent hot water; no more having to wait for the dishwasher or washing machine to finish a cycle before taking a bath or shower. Tankless hot water heaters allow you to do both simultaneously.

Tankless hot water heaters might cost a little more, but you get your money's worth. The average life span of a tankless hot water heater is 20 years. Plus, they are easily maintained and repaired. The experts at Heating Ontario can recommend the brand and type of tankless hot water heater that best suits your needs. We can also help you receive a tax credit for installing one in your home. All you have to do is contact us, and we'll be happy to send one of our trained professionals to your home for a free tankless hot water heater evaluation and estimate.
