The Ciprietti family of Mississauga have lived in their two-storey brick home ever since it was built, in 1981.
And they have relied on the home’s old furnace ever since, to keep them comfortable in the chilly Mississauga winters.
But not long ago, they realized the furnace needed to be replaced. When they learned they could get government grants and rebates for installing a new high-efficiency furnace, Ciprietti says it made sense to improve the home’s heating system.
Condensing gas furnace
To qualify for the government grants and rebates, the Mississauga family had a home energy audit.
During the audit, a certified Home Energy Advisor examined the home’s energy use patterns, and helped them decide on the best improvements to make.
The family learned that the home could be made much more efficient by choosing a condensing gas furnace.
Plus, such a high-efficiency furnace would make the home more comfortable, too, because it has a special fan, powered by a DC variable-speed motor, that circulates the warmed air more evenly through the home.
Now, after the furnace renovation, Ciprietti says the home is quieter, and the warm air is more evenly distributed. Plus, he can still feel comfortable, even with the thermostat set at a lower temperature.
“I used to have the thermostat at 75 and now I have it at 72,” he says. Knowing there’s a new, reliable furnace in place means he can feel secure that the home will be comfortable for a long time.
Grants help environment
Ciprietti says that homeowners who need to replace their furnace or make energy-saving improvements should definitely look into government grant programs.
“Everything is done for you and you just have to wait for the cheques,” he says. And, he adds, “Doing what we can to improve the environment is always good to do for the kids.”
