Why You (and the Planet) Really Need a Heat Pump
In Toronto and the GTA, there is no shortage of talented individuals willing to put in a hard day’s work for your company. With that said, it’s important to create a work environment that makes them happy to come in every day too. That starts with providing the right heating option for your building and quality commercial heating options can help.
Create The Best Work Environment With Quality Commercial Heating Options
Staying warm in the winter is a basic thing your employees expect when they sign up for the job. After all, when’s the last time an interview candidate asked about the office temperature? Probably never, because it should be fairly consistent. Warm in the winter, cool in the summer. However, older buildings aren’t so lucky when it comes to regulating their internal temperature.
Some systems are set on timers and only activate after a specified date on the calendar. This is Toronto though. The temperature here is anything but consistent. Sometimes winters last long and summer temperatures run well into October! That’s why it’s so important to have a professional HVAC technician assess your building and heating system.

Not wanting to spend your money with the wrong company is understandable when you live in Toronto and the GTA. After all, heating contractors don’t come cheap, so here are a few things to look for before hiring one to help with your furnace or heat pump.
Tips For Hiring Heating Contractors
How many years of experience do they have?
Knowing how long a company has been in business can help you narrow down the serious professionals from the freelancing heating contractors with a nice website out there. The more years they have, the better chance you’re getting someone who knows what they’re doing.
How much of the city to do they serve?
Serving a larger portion of the city means the company is more than just a one-man shop. Usually larger companies have the resources to dispatch technicians and heating contractors quicker since they have a larger team on staff.
How are their reviews?
Since you’re online, take a look at their Google reviews for some feedback about their work. They may not all be true or that detailed, but reading some of the longer responses will help shine a light on what the HVAC company is all about and how they treat customers.
Has a friend or relative worked with this company before?
Finally, you should always ask around work or your own network to see if anyone can personally recommend good heating contractors. Don’t take the first one you hear of course. Just collect some names and do your research before deciding. After all, you don’t want someone’s brother-in-law to show up at your door, fresh out of school and looking to “give it a try”.

Living in Toronto means we are all lucky enough to live in one of the greatest places on the planet, but that also means that for about 6 months of the year we may have to use our furnace, boiler, baseboard heating, ductless heat pump, fireplace or another heating source to keep our house and our family warm. The heating costs associated with heating our homes can greatly vary depending on the type of heating our home uses. Regardless of what it is there are some ways to ensure that your heating costs don’t get out of control this winter and into the spring.
4 Ways To Cut Heating Costs That Won’t Break The Bank
- Dress for the Weather – It’s no secret, it’s cold outside side on the streets of Toronto and it’s not going to change until March, April or even May. Leaving t-shirts in the closet might not be easy, but putting on warmer clothes can certainly let you turn down the heat in your home a little. If you lower the temperature in your home by just 1 degree for 8 hours, you can reduce your home heating costs by 1%. Over the course of the winter that’s a lot of money back in your pocket just by wearing a sweater. When your programmable thermostat lowers the temperature through the day when no one is home you save even more.
- Keep Cold Air Out, Warm Air In – Drafts are one of the worst offenders when it comes to reducing heating costs. Block drafts around doorways and you’ll notice a big difference in how warms the exterior rooms in your home are. Weather stripping is a great way to keep doorways tight and shrink wrapping your windows can help keep cold air out and warm air in. These simple tips allow a room to keep an extra 50% of its heat.
- Keep The Air Circulating – Is anyone but the family cat sleeping in the guest room tonight? No? Then close the door. While the room will still be heated when your furnace or boiler turns on, the temperature of that space won’t affect your thermostat so you will essentially be heating up a smaller space, at least your thermostat will think so. You also should do the same for any spaces in the home that are infrequently used, like the laundry room. If you’ve got the drying running it’s likely warm enough in there already.
- Schedule A Boiler Or Furnace Maintenance Appointment – It’s a fact: When your HVAC appliances are properly maintained they operate more efficiently. Cleaning it out and changing the filters is the best and easiest way to keep it operating as well as it can be. The more efficient it runs, the more you save on heating costs. A furnace or boiler that’s not functioning properly can cost you a lot of money, especially when it’s working overtime to keep you and your family warm throughout the cold Toronto winter.
