Comfort & Reliability: KeepRite Gas Furnaces
Staying warm during a typical Manitoba winter can be costly, especially if your furnace is old. If it requires frequent repairs or your heating costs have noticeably increased, it’s likely time to replace it. Here’s why a KeepRite gas model may be the right type of furnace for your home.
KeepRite produces three energy-efficient gas furnace lines: Ion, QuietComfort and Performance. While there are some differences between the models in each series, all of them come with a comprehensive warranty and offer significant energy savings.
Since 2010, new furnaces installed in Canada must have annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) of 90 per cent or higher. The AFUE measures how much fuel is converted into heat and how much of it is lost. A furnace with an AFUE of 90 per cent loses only 10 per cent of its fuel. KeepRite’s high-efficiency furnaces can provide up to 98 per cent AFUE, meaning most of them meet the Energy Star certification requirements.
All of KeepRite’s models offer unparalleled quality and efficiency, though some product lines offer special features.
- Ion series. The most energy efficient model in this line is the Ion 98. This is because it uses variable speeds, which means it can run at lower speeds instead of frequently cycling on and off. This cuts down on energy usage and increases longevity. It can also be connected to your home automation system.
- QuietComfort series. The QuietComfort 96 is a two-stage furnace that offers up to 96 per cent AFUE. Thanks to its variable speed blower motor, you can expect this model to run smoothly and silently and to provide a consistent temperature throughout the home.
- Performance series. These budget-friendly models provide an affordable way to increase your home’s energy efficiency. Some models provide up to 96 per cent AFUE, although some configurations aren’t Energy Star certified.
Whatever model you choose, make sure to get reliable contractors to perform the installation. Otherwise, the furnace could malfunction or simply fail to live up to its potential in terms of energy efficiency.
