Should I Get a Ducane Furnace?

Which furnace will best meet the needs of your home in Ottawa? Ducane provides an array of options. It’s important to base your choice on more than just price. For example, consider the longevity and efficiency of your top picks! If you need help measuring your home to determine the right size furnace, you can count on The Energy Centre for efficient gas and electric furnace installation in Ottawa. 

Ducane furnaces are both affordable and energy efficient. We’ve listed some of the top Ducane furnaces with AFUE ratings of over 92%. Here are some of the advantages of choosing a Ducane furnace: 

  • Suitable for Canadian weather conditions (models below 80% AFUE not recommended for Ottawa customers.) 
  • Smaller opening requirement makes retrofitting simpler.  
  • Minimal duct usage minimizes disruptive installation. 
  • Lower energy consumption equals lower energy bills. 

We can help you choose the Ducane furnace that optimizes both energy use and comfort for your family. Some models have variable speed motors for better humidity and temperature control. If quiet start up is important to you, you’ll be happy to note that most Ducane furnace models start up slowly and gradually accelerate for less jarring start up noise.
