What you need to know when upgrading

The Office of the Fire Commissioner (OFC) has recently change their enforcement of the code eliminating the allowance of a one size variance in chimney size for your gas appliances to your home chimney. (as of Dec 1, 2018)

How does that effect you?

If your home has a gas hot water tank and a gas furnace, your chimney was designed and sized to accommodate both of those gas appliances to operate in one chimney. When converting a hot water tank from gas to electric or upgrading your furnace to high efficiency you will change your capacity for your home’s chimney, making it to large for only one gas appliance. When you take one of these gas appliances off the chimney the new code enforcement could require you to install a chimney liner to down size the chimney to the correct size. If upgrading your furnace, you may also consider changing your hot water tank to a power vented or an electric hot water tank to eliminate your old chimney altogether. If you have questions please feel free to call us, or inquire with Manitoba Hydro if your chimney could be affected.

Efficient Heat when you want it.

Gas Furnaces are efficient and effective. We would like to provide you with some information to help in the decision making process of your heating system.

Keeprite and Heil Furnaces are reliable, efficient heat when you need it. They are the choice for the majority of modern homes with central heating and air conditioning.

A gas furnace is the heating component in a majority of systems in colder weather climates. It converts gas to heat. The main components to a furnace include burners and heat exchanger, blower and controls. (INSERT BRAND NAME) gas furnaces are built to perform again and again, year after year. Beyond performance, we also provide options for energy-efficient operation. In fact, some of our furnaces operate at over 97% efficiency, which means that 97% of the fuel you pay for is actually converted into heat for your home.

A gas furnace, or forced-air heating system, reacts when the room air temperature drops below your programmed setting on the thermostat. The silicone nitride igniter lights a burner inside the combustion chamber. The heat created is then pushed into the heat exchanger, where the air is then heated. This newly heated air moves through the ductwork and into the rooms of the house. The combustion gases used to create the heat are vented through a flue in the roof or wall.
