Learn the Basics

HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems are designed to keep your home at a comfortable temperature while maintaining healthy indoor air quality.

Price Guide

The cost of a new HVAC system can vary from customer to customer due to a variety of factors, usually reflected in the ease or difficulty of the installation process.

Energy Ratings Explained

Select Continental HVAC systems are ENERGY STAR rated to meet strict energy efficiency standards. The standards were developed in collaboration with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to encourage significant reductions in harmful greenhouse gases.

Rebates & Tax Credits

Rebates and tax credits are generously offered in Canada through federal and provincial government agencies, plus energy providers such as Enbridge. The purpose of these financial support services is to increase the adoption of energy-efficient systems by offsetting some of the costs involved in upgrading legacy HVAC systems.

Repair or Replace?

Most air conditioners and heat pumps have a lifespan of approximately 10 to 12 years, while furnaces are expected to operate for 15 to 20 years. If your system is towards the end of its life expectancy, chances are that a replacement will save you money in the long run.
