“Changes are coming as of January 1, 2015 for ALL hearth industry manufacturers to be required to provide a third party test laboratory approved safety barrier with all gas fireplaces/stoves/inserts. According to the standard, manufacturers can no longer manufacturer glass front fireplaces/stoves/inserts without the safety barrier as of December 31, 2014.”

What this means for our customers… if you like the clean face glass – you MUST order one before December 31st, 2014 otherwise after that you will have to have the protective screen. This is affecting all fireplace manufacturers and all gas (and propane) models.


Give Mike a call at the office to discuss your options if you are interested in a Gas Fireplace.

Infloor Heating Installation | Mount Forest Heating Contractors

The work of an HVAC Technician truly can be described as an art of their very own. There is a lot of attention to detail, specific skills and knowledge required with a complex understanding of how the finished system is going to work!

Our guys installed infloor piping the other day, its not as simple as just laying pipe, there is a design involved for the overall heating of the floor and building.

Great work guys it looks awesome!

Ensure You and Your Home Stay Warm In The Cold!

The good people at Lennox have offered some excellent tips to “Stay Bold Against The Cold” in their recent Comfort Matters post! Check out their great tips for you and your home to stay warm in this cold winter weather.

As always please remember to ensure your furnace filter is clean or changed regularly.

When the temperatures drop OR we get a lot of snow, checking your heating vents is very important. When it is very cold outside (like today), when your furnace vents the vapour can crystallize over the vents when it hits the cold winter air. Be sure to check the vents at least once a day to ensure they are clear, twice if you are experiencing issues with your system. The same when we get a lot of snow, ensure your vents are clear.

Why is it important to keep the vents clear? The heating system has to breathe, if it cannot bring in fresh air and exhaust the stale air your system will not be able to work properly and will shut down.

What do the vents look like? If they are out the side of your house they will look similar to this…

Furnace Vents Cleared 20140107_124106_resizedThe pipe pointing down is the intake, the pipe straight out is the exhaust. They do require a minimum of 12″ all around them to work properly with the heating system.

When in doubt, once you’ve made sure your filter is clean, your vents are clear and have tried to reset your system… give us a call at 1-866-565-5513.

Thinking of selling your home?

Many of us at some point in our adult life will buy and sell our home, even multiple times. Speaking from experience, when we went searching for our home we had a fairly specific list of features.

Top of that list was the house must have or be able to have gas service.


Its simple. Bottom line, its more affordable – that was my main reason. Having the convenience of a gas BBQ, gas stove, gas dryer, gas hot water heater… and gas heat.

Well for us we lucked out – we found a house that fit all our needs AND had gas service. We had to compromise on an electric wall oven with a gas cook top – yes I even searched for a gas wall oven… We also had to compromise on geothermal heat – yes being in the business it is an affordable and environmental way to heat and cool… but not when you have gas available for heating! Quite honestly we will be making the change so our heating is primarily gas.

So … what if you are thinking of selling your home and your home has baseboard heat?

Homes with electric baseboard heating are not sought out nor preferred, for many home buyers they are a turn off. The biggest reason being its expensive, next to that the air doesn’t circulate as well and you wont be able to install central air conditioning – although there is options such as mini splits.

Bottom line is if you have gas in your home and forced air heat/cooling you will have added value.

So what can you do if you have baseboard electric heat? If you want to max out your selling price … You can install a new furnace, a/c and duct work…

Installing an HVAC Comfort System to sell a home is a value added selling benefit where you will recoup your costs. This type of upgrade is vastly different than installing new flooring or even a new kitchen.

Why? The HVAC System is not as aesthetically key as your home decor which is much more personable and customized to the home owner. Notice how I do mention its “not as” … I know my technicians would tell me different – it is very important 😉 The HVAC system is located in the basement, it is not something that is seen by your guests or something that you choose based on colour or look. The system is however chosen based on comfort – the comfort of you, your family and friends during all 4 seasons of the year.

The approximate cost of installing duct work, a new furnace and new a/c in a home with baseboard heat will vary based on the size of the home, whether the basement is finished, the ease of installation, the models you choose etc. For the sake of numbers lets play with $15,000.

With our financing option through SNAP Financial you CAN afford to make this upgrade to your home, especially if you would like to make it more appealing to buyers.

The beauty of SNAP is it works much like a line of credit would – you have set payments each month, however if you would like to make lump sum payments or double up your payments – you can do so at any time without penalty! Perfect for someone who may be listing their home…

Working with our number from above:

Purchase price of $15,000
Monthly payment of $162/mth
7.95% interest.

Why buy quality equipment if you are selling? This definitely is a selling feature. As a Premier Lennox Dealer we pride ourselves on the quality of the equipment along with their energy efficiency.

A few more reasons why …

1. Lennox® offers the quietest high-efficiency furnace you can buy.

2. Variable speed technology can enhance your comfort and save you hundreds of dollars each year.

3. Absolute comfort. Furnaces with PreciseComfort™ technology are engineered to deliver ideal warmth.

Oh and an added benefit to YOU!
Install the system during one of our promotions and you will get rebates on the system – which means money back in your pocket!!!

Happy Selling!
