Baker Boys in Action

Here at Baker plumbing we want to provide the best tech while using the best tech!

The choice of who works on your furnace, the heart of your HVAC system and the very appliance keeping Old Man Winter at bay, should be made carefully. There is alot of smoke and mirrors out there and you can trust Baker to clear the air!

Types of Furnaces 

While worldwide there are many different types of furnaces, in Alberta there are generally only 2 based on fuel source.

  • Natural gas
  • Propane

Once past the fuel the field becomes much more cluttered with such verbiage as first and second stages, PSC or ECM motors, exchanger metal types and on and on.

The government legislation mandating the efficiency ratings, the minimum allowable is 92% has left manufacturers and sellers to add new components at a furious rate to gain a percent here and one there!

Baker recommendations

While new technology is impressive and even amazing, our belief is still to keep things as simple as possible. We recommend the following

  • the basic 92% efficiency model
  • single stage gas valve
  • PSC motor
  • stainless steel exchanger

Those components will give you the 92% efficiency rating, low operating costs and the least potential for an expense repair bill in the future.

Still confused or have questions?

At Baker we can answer and solve any of your questions or problems.
