Forced-air furnaces offer many advantages, including their ability to:

  • Be up to 96 per cent efficient
  • Provide quick, reliable heat
  • Filter and humidify household air
  • Ventilate your home
  • Accommodate central air conditioning Natural gas furnaces are also economical, clean and safe, and they add value to your home.

When to replace your furnace

Keep your new heating system in top condition with an annual service visit. Consult a registered heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) contractor.
