My name is Susan and I recently had to replace the furnace in my home because it was old, noisy and inefficient. I’m a relatively new homeowner (moving into my first home earlier this year), so naturally, I’m not too familiar with Toronto home heating options. Do I go with a new furnace or boiler or maybe a combi-boiler – whatever that is. Luckily, someone told me about Novel Care and this is how my experience learning about Toronto Home Heating Options went.

My Toronto Home Heating Options Weren’t So Confusing

I called Novel Care as soon as I started experiencing issues with my heating system. This was probably late in the winter months or maybe even early spring, so I wasn’t in desperate need of heat on a daily basis. When I told them about how the heat wasn’t really coming in steady, they were able to send out someone to assess the situation right away.

Now, I already knew ahead of time that my heating would need to be replaced sooner than later when I moved in – courtesy of my realtor. Apparently the unit was pushing 20 years old and even though it was running smooth, furnaces don’t normally last much longer than that. Sure enough, I was right.

Once Novel Care arrived, we had a much more detailed discussion about my furnace as well as how much a novice I am when it comes to being a homeowner. My technician, Dave, was very sympathetic to my situation and started to lay out my Toronto home heating options going forward.

To keep things simple here, it was really only 2 options that I needed. I have a bigger home that was left to me by my uncle, so combi boilers and ductless units didn’t make much sense to use. They’re better for smaller space living – like condos. That left me with either a boiler or a new furnace. Since I already had the ductwork in place, Dave recommended a new furnace. Boilers are great Toronto home heating options too but in this specific case, a furnace made sense financially. No point in letting all that ductwork go to waste.

I’m very grateful for the team at Novel Care. I’m still learning more and more about the basic systems in my home, but having this team respond quickly to my call and walk me through my options was something I really appreciate. I’d recommend Novel Care any day.

Being a homeowner is Toronto and the GTA isn’t easy and requires you to question just about every repair bill, maintenance fee, and any other cost that will inevitably rear its head. In the end, it all comes down to balance. You don’t want to book everything all at once, and you also can’t ignore everything in hopes it will get better. That’s exactly why booking fall duct cleaning is a good idea.

September & October Are Perfect Months For Fall Duct Cleaning

Luckily, duct cleaning is one of those things that doesn’t need to be done more than once a year in your home. This cuts down on cost and lets you save your hard earned money. The reason why the early fall months are the best times to book one is that it’s just before winter.

As the temperature drops, chances are you will be spending more and more time indoors to stay warm. Combine that with spending more money than you’d like around the holidays and you might find yourself hibernating until spring. More time inside means you have to remember to consider the air quality in your home. Over the year, vents and ductwork pick up debris in the air. This can build up over time and actually increase the risk for respiratory issues or even allergies for those of you with pets. Simply put, the air in your home is stuck in a vicious circle when your ductwork isn’t cleaned – and being exposed to that isn’t good for you or those you live with. Luckily, Novel Care can help.

Toronto and the GTA can have some pretty extreme weather. It’s either unbearable in the summer with humidity or freezing cold in the winter, so it’s important to know what your options are when it comes to heating and cooling. See why heat pumps might just be your best bet.

Heating And Cooling 101 – What You Need To Know

Unless you work in the world of HVAC, it can be pretty confusing to know the differences between central air conditioning and ductless, or heat pumps and boilers.

First things first, heat pumps are 100% useful in both the summer and winter months. When it gets hot out, the system works to pull in air from outside, cools it, and distributes it indoors. When it gets cold out, you can set it to heat your home. This time, the unit will pull in colder air and condense it so you only feel warm air coming in.

Another thing you should know is that heat pumps are great for keeping energy costs lower each month. They were actually designed to only control the temperature of a given area of your home at a time. This makes heat pumps great for heating and cooling living rooms, bedrooms and other frequently used spaces of your home – but not all at once. You should always consider asking a professional for an assessment to see if heat pumps make sense for your home. If you have a smaller, well-insulated space, then they could be your best option.

My name is Alex and I recently just bought a condo in the east end of the city. The building itself is a bit older and everyone is responsible for his or her own air conditioning/furnace. Since my building is at least 15 years old, I knew there was a chance I’d have some trouble with my HVAC. And that’s exactly what happened. I made the mistake of calling someone my property manager recommended without checking up on them first. Now I’m still dealing with these guys for my central heating repair and winter is almost over!

Should’ve Gone With Novel Care For Central Heating Repair

After countless calls and emails with this HVAC company, it’s slowly starting to become clear that maybe they aren’t as professional as I’d originally hoped. Sure they came recommended by my property manager, but that’s only because they’ve had some experience with my building. It had nothing to do with how good they were. It was just a matter of convenience!

Naturally I did some digging into other HVAC companies who might be able to help with my central heating repair needs, and Novel Care was the first one to get back to me. They were nice enough to answer my questions and listen to my situation. Thanks to them I was able to actually get a qualified professional to take a look at my furnace within a few hours of my call.

They recommended I let the other company finish up since they were the official installers and it wouldn’t cost me anything, but I just wanted this to be done. I should’ve just called Novel Care from the start.

As a homeowner in Toronto and the GTA, you know that repairs and upgrades to your place don’t come cheap. That’s why it’s so important to do some research and know what your options are before investing in some central heating alternatives like heat pumps.

Heat Pumps Make A Great Central Heating Alternative

For those of you who may not know about heat pumps, they are a ductless option. A heat pump pulls in air from outside, condenses it, and pushes it indoors through a single unit.

Since they don’t distribute warm air throughout the entire home, heat pumps are quite different than central heating. They don’t require vents or necessary ductwork associated with central heating, making them a very efficient option for heating specific areas of your home. Most people will have one unit per floor that will either be in a bedroom or living room. Having these smaller units relies on you only wanting to warm the most heavily used areas of your home. The idea is that by heating only the rooms you use most, you won’t be wasting energy heating up your entire living space. This keeps monthly energy bills lower than if you had central heating in place.

Naturally, if you already have the ductwork in place and are familiar with central heating, installing heat pumps may not be for you. Yes, they are cheaper than replacing your furnace, but it really depends on the size of your home, and which areas you’d like to keep warmest in the winter months. Often times, furnaces can last for up to 20 years if properly maintained, so if yours isn’t broken, swapping it out for a heat pump instead may not be the best use of your money.
