Furnace Rental Companies Comparison

This comparison focuses on three of the top furnace rental companies.

These companies were chosen because they serve several provinces across Canada, including Ontario and Alberta.

In addition to these three companies, there are several more operating in various areas of the country, though many of those rely heavily on door-to-door sales. Companies whose primary source of customers comes from this type of unsolicited high-pressure sales frequently have a high number of consumer complaints, and may be the subject of investigations by the media or consumer protection agencies. For this reason, we’ve chosen not to cover them here.

Furnace-Rental.ca,  Enercare, and Reliance Home Comfort all have offices in Toronto, Ontario, and typically operate offices and a network of technicians in cities across Canada to service a large number of Canadian households.

Please note that the prices listed below may vary somewhat based on ongoing promotions or other offers from these companies.

    Hi, our furnace is 23 years old and is in a fairly bad condition, would you suggest we replace it or get it fixed? What is the average price of replacing the furnace? Currently the Board, Sensor, and glass valve are broken and the house size is around 2000 square ft. Thank you

      Hello Meky,

      That is a fairly old furnace so it’s probably worth replacing. A newer more efficient furnace will also help lower your heating costs and give you peace of mind with a good warranty. For a free quote on a new system, please feel free to give us a call or fill out the quote request form.

    We have a 10 year old air to air electric heat pump with auxiliary coils for low temperature back up. The cost of electricity is now so high that we augment (almost completely) with a wood pellet stove. I’m considering tearing the whole thing out (except for the plenum system) and having a propane system installed. Does this seem reasonable? We live in a rural area and solar/wind is impossible because of the trees surrounding our house. We realize we would lose the AC component of the system if we removed it all. Thanks.

      Hi Colin,

      You must be somewhere in Ontario because we see a growing trend of consumers converting from electrical systems to propane or natural gas. Electricity can be more energy efficient than gas but not economically efficient. Many consumers in Quebec are on heat pump systems because the electricity rates are much lower. The good thing is, you can definitely keep your heat pump system in tact since the coil is inside the plennum. You can run air conditioning in the summer and have your propane furnace blowing the air. If for some reason you live in an area where if you run out of propane, you still have the heat pump as backup. So in reality, you are only removing the electric air handler and installing a propane furnace. Please fill out our contact form and we can have a specialist get in touch to provide a quote for you. Thank you for writing to us!
