In Toronto and the GTA, it’s not hard to spend money. With that in mind, the last thing any homeowner wants to do is purchase a bad investment. That’s why we’ve put together 3 things you should look for when it comes to buying a replacement furnace.

Replacement Furnace: Save Money, Time & Stress

Quality First

Just like your home, you want to find something that makes spending your hard earned cash worth it. Finding a replacement furnace is no different. You don’t want to overspend by buying a model that isn’t right for your home, but you also don’t want to scrape the bottom of the barrel for the “best” deal either. Instead, pay attention to the AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) Rating. Consider shopping for replacement furnaces with a minimum rating of 95% to ensure you’re getting your money’s worth. It also should be EnerGuide and Energy Star-certified.

Once you have your eye on the model you want, don’t go with the first “professional” willing to help you – because trust us, there’s a lot of them out there. Instead, take your time and find the right professional that has enough experience, reviews, and serves a good portion of the city so you know they will get the job done well.


Furnace maintenance is something that is highly recommended once every 1-2 years. Just like any vehicle you’ve ever owned, you can’t expect to simply buy it and never make sure everything is working properly under the hood. The right professional can help with maintenance on your replacement furnace to make sure it lives a full life (15-20 years).

Payment Options

Finally, you’ll want to consider your payment options with your replacement furnace. Do you want to pay in full upfront? Do you want to rent? Only you can decide based on your financial situation and future plans. Just be sure the person you buy from goes over the pros and cons of your options with you.
