When you hire 180 Plumbing & Heating, we help you find cost-saving opportunities. Some companies would rather replace your furnace than repair it because they can make more money from replacement services. This continues the cycle of planned obsolescence, where you are required to continually buy expensive new appliances rather than restoring existing ones.

At 180 Plumbing & Heating we prefer the repair option for three solid reasons:

  1. Environmental Impact
    Yes, high-efficiency furnaces will use less fuel to produce the same heat as a mid-efficient furnace, however, we don’t believe this should be the only consideration. When comparing fossil fuels, natural gas is one of the cleanest burning fuels. If you have a mid-efficient furnace and are considering investing in a new high-efficiency model, you might consider putting that money towards increasing the R-Value of your home instead. This will have a lasting impact on your home and has the potential of saving you more money in the long term. Also, if your furnace is working and you replace it, consider what happens to your furnace. Some of it will be recycled, but most of it just goes to the landfill.
  2. Mid-Efficient Furnace Efficiency
    There are some benefits to mid-efficient furnaces. Consider these benefits before you choose whether or not to do a full replacement:

    • Mid-efficiency furnaces have fewer parts that are prone to failure, saving you money over the lifespan of the furnace.
    • Fewer computer components keep the operation simpler and also reduce expensive repairs if the computers fail.
    • Replacement parts are typically less costly compared to newer models.
  3. New Furnaces Will Inevitably Break Down
    Your new furnace will also eventually break down. New furnaces typically have a 5-year parts warranty and after those 5 years, any part that fails is an expense that you will be responsible for. It may be tempting to choose the simplicity of a brand new furnace for the initial convenience, but they are not fail-proof solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a furnace repair save you money?2022-10-20T02:58:21-06:00

Just because your property can maintain a comfortable temperature does not necessarily mean that your furnace is functioning optimally. If you have noticed that your energy bill is higher than usual, even in the winter, the problem could very well stem from an inefficient heating system. Our furnace technicians are experts at making sure heating units are functioning properly and not working too hard to save you money. Contact us today for an assessment.

Do plumbers repair furnaces?2022-10-20T02:59:03-06:00

Yes, plumbers fix furnaces. In Alberta, plumbers receive two tickets. The first is a Plumbing ticket, and the second is a Type B Gasfitter ticket, which allows a qualified Plumber to work on any gas-fired appliance under 399,000 BTU/hr, which includes all household furnaces. If your furnace quits in the middle of winter or you want to be prepared with a pre-season service, 180 Plumbing & Heating can handle all your furnace maintenance needs.

What are the indicators that a furnace needs repairs?2022-10-20T03:01:07-06:00

There are many signs that indicate your furnace may require servicing. It’s a good idea to check on your appliances as part of a regular routine and monitor for any of these issues that are indicators that it’s time to schedule a repair:

  1. Cold rooms: If your home or business takes a long time to heat up, or stops warming up entirely, it’s time for an inspection right away to get the furnace back in operation.
  2. Loud Noises: Furnaces typically operate relatively quietly. Frequent banging or whirring noises could be a sign that a fan or motor needs to be replaced. 
  3. Unusual smells: A faint unpleasant scent is a common indicator of a carbon monoxide leak. A carbon monoxide leak compromises your furnace and also poses a serious health risk. If your furnace is emitting carbon monoxide, call the fire department and evacuate the building. 
  4. Higher heating bills: Your heating costs may creep up over time with an inefficient furnace. Scheduling a visit with the 180 Plumbing & Heating team to get your furnace serviced and tuned up.
  5. Repeated furnace cycling: If your furnace continually runs, a gauge may have malfunctioned and it’s no longer responding to the thermostat to regulate heating cycles properly.

I hired Desmond to locate and repair a major water leak at our newly purchased townhouse in Palliser. Desmond was punctual, quickly located the problem and sent me an accurate quote for the repair cost. The repair was done perfectly and for the price quoted. He even found time to properly level the toilet and clean out the shower drain at no extra cost. Oustanding service!

Just by sending some pictures of faucet and leak location, Desmond quickly grabbed replacement parts from Delta and fixed my issue affordably

Working to develop my basement I contacted a number of different plumbers to have them rough in the plumbing for my basement washroom. They provided accurate information and have really taken the project on as a whole. I’m very impressed
