We are your Furnace & Ottawa Home Heating Experts! We offer a broad selection of Lennox and York Furnaces. Let us help you find the right furnace for you! A furnace that will suit your home and budget best!
Older furnaces are drastically more inefficient compared to their modern conterparts. Climate Works offers furnace models that are nearly 99% efficient, while older furnaces are 50-80% efficient.
The trend has been to replace these inefficient furnaces with condensing gas furnaces. The most efficient furnaces in the industry, Lennox condensing gas furnaces, reach AFUE efficiency ratings over 98% and can save up to 25% of your electricity bill too!
Fortunately, newer variable speed ECM blowers in many new furnaces can move air more efficiently at a fraction of the cost. Savings are most often $300.00 to as much as $500.00 per year! This is becoming even more significant with rising power costs and the HST tax on energy bills.
The advanced design and efficiency of today’s Lennox and Mitsubishi ZUBA Central Heat Pumps make them a much better option than Oil or Propane. Even with a Gas Furnace, a “Dual Fuel” system allows the heat pump to operate at times when it is the more efficient heat source, while the Gas Furnace takes over when it may be more suited to do so. The overall energy savings can be significant.
Ductless Heat Pumps are a great solution for homes heated with electrical baseboard heating that lack the ductwork system to distribute through a central heating unit.
Hot water radiators are one of the most common heat distribution systems in newer homes, second only to forced-air systems. They may be a baseboard-type radiator or may be of an upright design that resembles steam radiators. Cast iron radiators are typically only found in older homes, and operate at a lower water temperature than tube and fin convection radiators, typically found in newer homes.
When renovating or replacing an existing boiler, it is important to consider the different temperature requirements of the radiators you have or are considering installing. Newer High-Efficiency Boilers work better on systems requiring lower temperatures. Outdoor reset controls and output modulation capabilities work to keep the water temperature cooler when less heat is required, dramatically increasing overall efficiency and comfort.
Many existing hot water heating systems can be easily zoned, providing an added level of control over your home heating. Zone control is most effective when large areas of the home are not used often or are used on a different schedule than other parts of the home. Automatic valves on the hot-water radiator piping, controlled by thermostats in each zone of the house provide independent control of the heat in that area. Using programmable thermostats will allow you to automatically heat and cool off parts of your home to match your usage patterns.
Radiant floor heating is a method of heating your home by applying heat underneath or within the floor, wall or ceiling and in effect, making the entire surface of the floor or wall the radiator. Similar to cast iron radiators, this type of heat distribution warms objects directly, as opposed to raising the temperature of the air which then warms objects. Think of it as the difference between sitting in the sun or the shade. Sitting in the sun can be quite comfortable, even on an otherwise cool day.
Radiant systems operate at significantly lower temperatures than a typical radiator system and provide an even higher level of comfort. Savings of up to 20% can be attributed to Radiant Heating in Ottawa, due to the ability to maintain comfort and a lower thermostat setting something called the “Radiant Mean Temperature.”
It is a common misconception that Radiant Heating in Ottawa is a new technology; in fact, radiant heating has been in continuous use for thousands of years. The Romans used radiant heating their bathhouses and used similar technology to heat the water for the public baths. Radiant heating has been used for centuries by the Koreans to heat their royal palaces and traditional homes.
Today’s’ radiant heating technology is more advanced, and new materials and technologies can be used to provide heat for almost any purpose. Incorporating domestic water heating, pool heating and snowmelt systems. Although lesser known, Radiant Systems are also used very effectively for cooling as well.
NTI has spent almost ten years developing, testing and perfecting the technology of The Matrix heating system. The Matrix delivers a premium system that incorporates a Condensing Water Heater, Condensing Furnace, Condensing Boiler and Heat Recovery Ventilator and which is already pre-wired for air conditioning.
All of these functions are contained in one powerful system that requires less energy to operate than competing.
A world-class energy device that delivers reliable heating to keep your family comfortable. The Matrix also produces fewer tons of GHGs than any other integrated home heat product.
We do complete installations on all these units, from the demolition of old to start up and testing of new; all installed by our trained and certified technicians. Once the units are running, we can provide service and maintenance plans for you as well.
Climate Works provides 24-hour service for inspection and repairs. Should your furnace be damaged significantly during a disaster, we can give you temporary heat until your new furnace installation is approved.
