Gas furnace replaces oil

Home energy renovation - Ottawa Ontario

When Ottawa resident Joe Connolly and his family moved into their home in 1963, it was brand-new. The oil furnace worked well to heat the two-storey Ottawa home, and as long as the cost of oil remained steady, the heating bills were reasonable.

In recent years, though, the cost of oil has jumped worldwide. Connolly discovered the price of filling the tank for his old oil furnace fluctuated dramatically, due to factors well beyond his control.

“I never knew what the cost was going to be from month to month,” he says. Clearly, it was time to take control of something, and one thing he could control was how much energy he used in his Ottawa home.

Connolly invited a Home Energy Advisor to audit his home’s energy use and help him determine the best renovations and improvements to save money and energy in his home.

He learned his home needed some “updating,” and discovered that a new high-efficiency condensing gas furnace would provide him with the stability and efficient heating he needed — without having to fill an oil tank several times over the winter.

Home energy audit

After he installed the new furnace in his Ottawa home, Connolly says, “It was nice to get some money back.” He received grants and rebates from the Canadian and Ontario governments, as part of energy-saving efficiency incentives.

But even without the grants and rebates, having a home energy audit is a good idea. Connolly says his home energy assessment was useful because he thinks it’s generally a good idea to find out how efficient a home’s equipment is, and to know whether the heating and cooling equipment in a home is efficient enough.

Tankless hot water heater, insulation

During the energy audit on his Ottawa home, Connolly’s Ontario Home Energy Advisor suggested a variety of improvements and renovations.

While Connolly chose to replace his furnace right away, there were a few home energy upgrades that the Energy Advisor suggested, but that he’s yet to do. For one thing, he discovered that a tankless hot water heater would be a better way to meet his domestic hot water needs, but since he had recently replaced his old hot water tank, he decided against that particular retrofit — at least for now.

He’s also thinking about improving the home’s insulation at some point. But because Ontario Home Energy Advisors offer unbiased, professional advice, Connolly felt no pressure from his advisor to do more renovations and improvements than he was prepared to do at the time. Overall, he says, it was a good experience, and he recommends Canadians follow his example.

“Make the move,” Connolly says.
