Have you considered upgrading to variable capacity & Speed?

Variable Capacity

variable speed lennox signature series
Dave Lennox Signature SLP98V
Variable-Capacity Gas Furnace
The quietest and most efficient furnace you can buy*!
Efficiency Rating (AFUE): up to 98.7

Outside temperatures rarely, if ever, require your HVAC system to operate at 100% capacity.  Variable capacity units determine optimal cooling and heating needs and vary capacity in increments between 40% and 100%.  Not only does this tailor comfort, but by running at lower capacity and speeds you will  be consuming less power, you’ll save a significant amount off monthly utility expenses.

Variable Speed

Variable-speed technology allows more energy saving potential and improved comfort levels throughout the home.  The ability of the system to automatically adjust speeds according to the needs of the home ensures the right amount of comfort control, right when you need it.

OPA Grant Eligible

The Lennox Signature and Elite lines of furnace qualify for the Ontario Power Authority (OPA) grants. A Lennox furnace will not only keep you comfortable while saving energy in both cooling and heating but also qualifies for the OPA grant off $250.00.

Do I need to replace my air conditioner or need air conditioning to qualify for the grant?

No, you neither have to replace your existing air conditioning system or install a new air conditioning system in order to qualify for the grants.

Will the new furnace effect how my current air conditioner works?

Replacing your existing furnace with a new variable speed energy saving furnace will enhance you existing system. Many of our customers have found significant improvement of their existing air conditioning system with the improved air flow, the ability to reduce speed on start and dehumidify better.

This is what we like to see after our systems are set up. One of our systems in action dehumidifying.

OPA, reinventing the wheel


After almost three months of waiting for the Ontario Power Authority OPA rebate system to come online we received an email this past weekend. Fantastic you think!, sadly not. Despite the fact this program has been running now in excess of 5 years on a system that has been almost bug free conception and end user friendly, we now have a new system for data to be entered.

How bad can it be?

Password resets on the new website don’t generate emails to reset passwords.

Usernames are not the same from the old system (You have to be clever to figure this one out)

The system will not auto-save an entry or allow for saving an entry to be finished on a later date/time (Step back from the old system)

So where do we go from here?

Well stay tuned. We have sent further emails to the respective representative in control but I’m sure ours will be one of many that come across the desk at HRAI.

Currently we can not enter any submission but we hope this week will be the last of the waiting.

What we had was system that worked and at the very most needed some tweaks, the overhaul of the website for submissions should have been a mere formality with little delay or need to reinvent the wheel. I’m sure there has been much talk around the office at HRAI and OPA about how they have improved the system and the cost to do so justified.

There are less professional and smaller operations that wouldn’t put out a system so poorly operable. Is this Windows 8 comparison , no but a few beta testers prior to launch and these issues as simple as they are non existent.

Its a little Monday rant!
