Purchasing a High-Efficiency Furnace
Monthly power bills creeping up? Chances are your furnace isn’t working at optimal efficiency. Inefficient home heating systems can cause your monthly energy bills to rise higher than normal during the winter. Upgrading to a high-efficiency furnace, allows you to save money and enjoy a comfortable home heating experience. It’s important to consider what energy-efficiency level is right for your home and budget. For Calgary homeowners seeking a moderate-premium level of energy efficiency, you’ll want to look at furnace models that are ENERGY STAR certified by the government. ENERGY STAR home heating systems use less energy to operate, without compromising on the quality of their performance.

To improve furnace operation and lifetime cost of ownership, certain installation requirements must be met. For example, the unit must be the right size to deliver your home’s heating and cooling requirements and any unusual site factor (such as a difficult to reach install site) needs to be take into account. A licensed and certified HVAC technician can recommend the right unit for your home and budget and complete the install in accordance with location and wiring schematics as well as applicable safety codes.
High-Efficiency Furnace Pricing
The average cost for a new high-efficiency furnace in Calgary is between $3,000 and $6,000 on average, including installation.
Note that in Alberta, it is mandatory to do a heat-loss calculation before installing a new furnace, which is also factored into this cost.
Things that affect furnace prices in Calgary include:
- Its brand name (better known brand names tend to cost more)
- Its size and BTU output
- Whether it’s a single stage, stage two, or variable furnace
- How difficult it is for the technician to install
- Whether the homeowner is converting from oil to electric, or gas to propane
- Whether any special upgrades need to be added to the home to accommodate the new furnace
- Whether the furnace is energy efficient
The higher the cost, the more energy efficient the furnace usually is. If the furnace will be working for most of the winter, as it usually will be, it’s important to get a high-efficiency one, since this will significantly cut down on power bills.
For Calgary consumers who prefer to pay for a new or upgraded home comfort system in installments, there are different financing options available, each one an open term loan with flexible repayment conditions.
