FAQs

WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT BUYING A NEW FURNACE?
Gas furnace offers ideal heating in your home while significantly operating in lower utility bill than any other heating method including electricity, oil, or wood in Canada. Also, heating the entire home more efficiently while circulating conditioned, filtered air within the living area.
BTU stands for British thermal unit and it is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit (One BTU is about 1055 joules of energy). Gas furnaces have sizes ranging from 30,000 to 135,000 BTU/hour.
Placing a bigger furnace does not necessarily imply a better system for your home and a smaller furnace does not guarantee lower operating costs. To choose the right furnace size you should be purchasing, you can conduct a heat loss calculation (Manual J calculation) which indicates you the ideal size of your furnace.
This worksheet takes your home size, climate, design, and architecture into consideration and generates an adequate furnace size to fulfill the heating needed.
At Constant Home Comfort, we carry the following brands: Lennox, American Standard, Armstrong Air, Napoleon, Keeprite, Goodman.
AFUE stands for the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating and it is an indication of how efficiently energy is consumed. A lower AFUE implies furnace utilizes more energy in order to heat up your home. When you are looking for a new furnace, choose one that has a higher AFUE efficiency rating.
Furnace systems that have single-stage heating mean they have a fixed gas valve and a single-speed blower motor. A two stage furnace system has two levels of output to achieve more sophisticated demand of heating.
Two stage furnaces are more superior as they are able to operate at a lower gas consumption for majority of the day and has little temperature variance.
A variable speed furnace means that the furnace’s indoor blower motor operates at various speeds to control the flow of heated air to your home. It runs in less electricity consumption and more efficiently than a single speed furnace so that you save money and energy in a long run.
At Constant Home Comfort, there is a furnace maintenance plan. This plan includes the standard cleaning of your furnace system and checking parts & labour element, assisting homeowners with the hassle of having to reorder parts or maintain their system.
After proceeding with the maintenance we will record a complete report on your furnace and when it would need additional services and/or adjustments. The monthly cost for this program is $9.99 + HST/month. If you install a new furnace with Constant Home Comfort, the program goes down to $8.99 + HST/month.
Besides the furnace failed in operation and physically damaged, the key signs could be that your utility bill has gone up but you are running the same amount of time. At the same time, your home’s temperature may be fluctuating more than usual. Once you find yourself adjusting the temperature often and feeling less comfortable, it is worth it to fully check your furnace system.
WHAT AC SERVICES AND REBATES CAN I ENJOY WITH CONSTANT HOME COMFORT?
Constant Home Comfort is partnered with the following brands for AC products: Lennox, American Standard, Armstrong Air, Napoleon, Direct Air, Keeprite and Goodman.
It is dependent on the AC functionalities of your choice but it can range from $3500 to $7000, with average of $5000. Ask about our rebate offers and we will look after you.
There are room air conditioners and central air conditioners. Room air conditioners can be window or wall mounted, or a portable style. These systems will be smaller in size because they help circulate fresh, breezy air in a specific area.
A central air conditioner can be a single package unit, split system, or hidden in the mini ducts. Since this circulates air all throughout the home/space, the system will be bigger and so there may be multiple components, indoor units and outdoor units.
An EER (Energy-Efficiency-Ratio) certifies the cooling efficiency of an HVAC unit, which is calculated by the rate of cooling in BTUs per hour and divided by the rate of energy input in watts at a specific temperature. The optimal rating for a cooling unit is above 8.5.
A SEER (Seasonal-Energy-Efficiency-Ratio) rating is the maximum efficiency achieved by the unit, calculated by cooling output during the cooling season divided by the total electric energy input during that same period. The higher the SEER rating is, the more efficient the system will be. For example, a unit with a 16 SEER rating compares to 13 will increase efficiency by up to 30%.
Replacement or fixing costs can go upwards of $400, adding in technicians’ travelling fees. With so many additional costs, investing in a brand new AC system is worthwhile if you have an older unit with lower efficiency.
Depending on the model and product type of your AC that you purchase, you may qualify for different rebates. Contact our team to find out what savings you are eligible for!
Similar to the furnace maintenance plan, the AC maintenance plan helps ensure your AC system is operating at the highest efficiency and providing a most comfortable living environment.
The monthly cost for this program is $9.99 + HST/month. If you purchase a new AC system with Constant Home Comfort, the program goes down to $8.99 + HST/month.
DO I QUALIFY FOR ATTIC INSULATION REBATES?
In your home, you should ensure that you have adequate insulation in your walls, basement, and attic as this is what keeps the hot air in and cold air out in the winters, vise versa in the summers. Without proper insulation, your home is at risk of temperature fluctuations, heat loss, condensations, moistures and damages.
During the winters, beyond temperature changes, the snow can melt and create ice dams as well as excessive condensation in the attic space which poses a danger to your household. Beyond general safety precautions, there are also energy savings and environmental issues to be aware of.
In the GTA and across Ontario, there are a variety of rebate programs that allows you to get back some money while you do energy efficient home upgrades. Since attic insulation saves energy, you can qualify for thousands of dollars in savings. Contact our team for more information.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BASEMENT INSULATION?
Basement insulation is important to prevent energy loss. The basement is the area of the house that loses the most amount of heat which is why it cannot be neglected in the insulation process. It will also help in reducing moisture build up, cutting energy costs, and increasing the value of your home.
COULD YOU TELL ME ABOUT IAQS?
IAQ stands for Indoor Air Quality -- referring to the air quality within and around dwelling.
Air cleaner, humidifier, dehumidifier, HEPA, ventilator, UV lamp and thermostats are all falling under IAQ products.
The following brands are associated with IAQs: Healthy Climate by Lennox, Clean Comfort, Honeywell, Generalaire, Aprilaire, Nest, Emerson and White-Rogers.

CAN YOU HELP ME MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION ABOUT BUYING A WATER HEATER?
The water heater assists with heating the water through electrical-resistance heating elements. Every home needs a well-functioning water heater for many components of it to be working, such as the showers, cooking, space heating, etc.
Beyond the purchasing price and rental price, you have to consider additional costs such as installation fees, labour costs, parts costs. On top of that, you have to consider the time you have to either maintain your purchase or search for a contractor after your warranty ends.
Depending on your living situation and what works best for you, you may want to invest in a water heater. Constant Home Comfort provides both the option to purchase and to rent

To Cary and his team I would love to recommend your company to all my friends, the speed in which you came to replace our furnace is amazing, although I was told by the installers I called there are no rebates, you have been able to get me the rebates and lower my cost significantly.

Bob

I had an excellent experience with Constant Home Comfort.  From the first phone call to constant home comfort, to the sales appointment all the way until the end of the installation process, i was completely impressed. Not only professionally, but friendliness and courtesy, which is very important to me. I have had bad experiences with HVAC companies before, but felt secure after the first phone call. I had replaced my furnace and a/c unit and Constant Home Comfort was able to save me more money than I initially thought, and they handled the paperwork for the rebates for me… made the process SO much less of a hassle on my end. Thanks guys! 

Marcel
