Buying a new furnace is a major investment in your Winnipeg area home. When a new or a replacement heating system is needed, the price is an important factor. Some heating contractors in Winnipeg may include some vague price information or too-good-to-be-true discount offers in their advertising, but the actual cost of a new furnace, completely installed, can’t be priced over the phone or in an advertisement. As a leading KeepRite Authorized Dealer, we receive volume discounts and we pass the savings on to our valued customers. We would like to help you understand the many factors that will determine what you pay and how much you save.

  • Which Manufacturer?

    There are several furnace manufacturers in Canada , including KeepRite, Carrier, Lennox, Bryant, Trane, Goodman, Rheem, Daikin, Ruud, Payne, York and more. Some specialize in making economy-priced products and others make high-efficiency models with advanced features and long warranties. As a KeepRite Factory Authorized dealer, our top-reviewed Winnipeg heating company offers a complete range of home heating products in all price ranges from KeepRite and Goodman. We’ll show you all of your options. You choose the option that’s best for your home and your budget.

  • Which Product Line or Model?

    All manufacturers offer a range of models, each offering different features, warranties, controls and other specifications. Our sales staff can help you choose a model that has the features you want at the price suitable to your budget. We’ll help you understand all those features and answer all of your questions.

  • What Efficiency Rating?

    Energy efficiencies are measured by their Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency or AFUE rating. In general, efficiency ranges between 80% and 97% AFUE or even higher. High-efficiency furnaces include additional components, which increases their prices. However, because of its lower fuel cost in the long run, choosing an efficient model will save money over the long run.

  • What Is the Installation Cost?

    Another factor in the total price for any furnace is installation and any additional materials that may be needed. If your existing ductwork or venting needs to be altered, more work is required.

  • What Is the Total Cost of Ownership?

  • Since furnaces are designed to last for 20+ years, it’s important to consider your total cost of ownership before making a buying decision. For example, the higher the efficiency is, the lower your heating bills will be. That can make heating your home in the years to come much lower than if you chose a lower efficiency one.
