Furnace Installation Oakville

Brrrr! When those cold winter temperatures arrive in Oakville, you need to know that your home or commercial property will be adequately and efficiently heated so you stay toasty warm throughout the long, chilly months. While there are places in the world where most homes don't have or need heating systems, that certainly doesn't apply to Canada — a functioning furnace is a necessity here, not a luxury. Our team is here to help with local Oakville furnace installation.

If you can't rely on your current heating system to last through the cold weather season and provide year-round comfort for your family, you need furnace installation. Oakville residents often need to use their heating systems in spring and fall as well when temperatures routinely dip below 10 degrees Celsius during the winter. That extended usage means more wear and tear on your system, so it needs to be running at peak efficiency to keep your home at your preferred temperature and save you money on energy costs.

When the time comes for Oakville furnace installation, you can trust the experienced service professionals at Aire Serv of Halton for high-quality workmanship and excellent customer service. We proudly serve Oakville and many nearby areas with outstanding service. Your satisfaction is our number one priority!

What Are the Benefits of Oakville Furnace Installation?

You may be wondering if getting a new unit is really worth it — and the answer is, it's definitely worth it. You may not even know how much a new heating system can improve the condition of your home until you see for yourself the difference your new unit makes to your air quality, comfort, and bank account. Here are some of the biggest benefits of furnace installation.

Save Money

No one wants to spend more than they need to on their energy bill, but that's exactly what happens when your heating system is not energy efficient. Your system loses efficiency over time as it ages, and the expected lifespan of a unit is only about 15 years. A system that is 15 years or older is probably running at well below 80% efficiency, while a new, energy-efficient unit can clock in at around 92 to 96% efficiency. That means it uses a lot less energy to keep your home at your preferred temperature, which makes a significant difference to your utility bills.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

If you have allergies or suffer from dry skin and sinuses, this is a huge advantage of Oakville furnace installation. Oakville has a relatively humid climate, but it can still get pretty dry in the winter, and an aging furnace certainly doesn't help. New units offer humidification to put moisture back into the air and improve the overall air quality of your building.

Increase the Comfort of Your Home

Do you remember, as a child, being told to “put a sweater on” when you complained that it was too cold in the house? It's a time-honoured solution, but a lot of people in Oakville don't really want to have to wear a bulky sweater indoors all winter long, or double up on warm socks to keep their feet cozy at night. A new furnace installation will heat your home for less, so you can afford to keep the thermostat set to the perfect temperature and lounge around in whatever clothing is most comfortable.

More Environmentally Friendly

Manufacturers are constantly working to improve their products so that they are capable of doing more with less. Those advances in energy efficiency don't just lower your utility costs, they reduce the strain on a limited resource, which is more environmentally sustainable and kinder to the planet—and the local Oakville community.

Types of Furnaces Available in Oakville


While natural gas furnaces were historically less efficient than electric options, some new models can match electrics for efficiency. They can be dangerous to install because of the need for gas piping, so it's important to have an Oakville professional take care of the furnace installation. Natural gas units have a lot of operating power, so they're able to heat your home very quickly. That's generally a good thing, but rapid heating can have a warping effect on wood in your home. They are more expensive upfront to install, but operating costs are generally lower.


These high-efficiency furnaces are less expensive to purchase and easier to install, though installation help from an experienced Oakville service professional is still recommended to avoid faulty installation. They are often more efficient than gas options, but electricity tends to be more costly than gas, so operating costs can be higher. It takes longer to heat your home, but that slow heating is less damaging to hardwood floors and other wooden elements.

Alternative Options for Oakville

Oil and propane options are also available, though less common in Oakville than gas or electric furnace installation. Oakville homeowners may also choose to bypass a furnace system altogether in favour of a heat pump or boiler to meet their heating needs. If you're not sure what's best for your home or commercial property, our service professionals can consult with you and offer some advice based on their extensive experience with HVAC installation in Oakville.

Oakville Furnace Installation FAQs

Want to know more about Oakville furnace installation? Local residents and people in other parts of Halton can call us any time to get the expert advice needed to make an informed decision about the care of your home.

How Long Do Furnaces Last in Oakville?

The general rule of thumb is that a unit can last around 15 to 20 years if it receives proper care on a regular maintenance schedule. However, Canadian heating systems get a lot more use than systems in warmer parts of the world, so they may begin showing signs of trouble in the 10 to 15 year range. You can help to extend the lifespan of your unit with annual duct cleaning and other professional maintenance services.

Can I Install a Furnace Myself?

If you're asking this question, the answer is probably not. It may not look like that big of a deal to install a basic electric heating system, but it can be more complicated than you think and there are a lot of potential pitfalls. Take the burden off your shoulders and let our service professionals handle it, so you can rest assured it has been done correctly and safely. Never try to install a gas furnace yourself — there's too big of a risk involved with letting gas seep into your home from an improperly sealed connection.

What Do the Acronyms AFUE and HSPF Mean?

You may have come across these acronyms when searching for furnace installation. AFUE stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. It is a measure of how efficiently your heating system operates — the higher the AFUE rating, the better. HSPF stands for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor, and it's a measure of efficiency for heat pumps. Again, higher numbers are preferred. You've probably also seen the acronym SEER, which stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and measures the efficiency of air conditioning units.
