As the island has not always had natural gas there is some resistance to it in some areas. Rest assured – natural gas is as safe as alternate forms of heating and costs as little as 1/3 as much on your heating bills. Since back in the old days when gas first came the island – furnaces use to be clunky, less safe and way less efficient. Nowadays, high efficiency furnaces are approaching 100% efficiency. New furnaces are also overwhelmingly safe when compared to old furnaces. Victoria has a milder climate than most of Canada – furnaces do not need to be oversized in the Vancouver Island area. We cover all areas of the south island from Victoria, Oak Bay, Saanich, Langford Sidney, Shwartz Bay & beyond.
When your looking at furnace replacement costs for high efficiency furnaces – there is a range. We deal in a bronze, silver, gold, platinum. Bronze models don’t have bells & whistles, are less expensive but often miss the rebates. Silver models & above all qualify for rebates (when rebates are running) and come with increasing levels of features. The top level of furnace has features that are often not used unless you have a special circumstance – the most often selected furnaces are the silver & the gold.
