RUUD

Ruud furnace repair in Calgary

Ruud is a historic name in the world of heating, founded by a Norwegian immigrant to Pittsburgh, PA. in 1897. He developed the first automatic storage tank gas-fired water heater, broadening the range over the years until Ruud’s eventual purchase by Rheem in 1960. 

The range of Ruud furnaces includes up to 98.7% AFUE gas furnaces, oil-fired furnaces, and more.

Ruud furnaces are quite popular in Calgary and, though they have a good name for reliability, may require repairs as they age. Older furnaces may develop many types of issues:

  • Lack of heat
  • Cold air coming from vents
  • Excessive monthly energy bills
  • Water leakages
  • Loud bangs or other strange noises
  • Unusual or bad smells
  • Turning off and on repeatedly (short-cycling)
  • Unusual cold spots in the home

Such issues require professional attention. The licensed repair technicians at Alberta Mountain Air have consistently earned stellar reviews from thousands of satisfied Calgary homeowners. 

Our team is just a phone call away and is ready to return your Ruud furnace to peak performance again.

Ruud furnace installation in Calgary

A furnace is an integral part of most Calgary homes and a major financial consideration for homeowners.

Not only are there significant upfront and installation costs but furnaces can contribute up to 40 percent of a home’s energy bills. It’s important to make the right decisions from the start when upgrading your furnace, particularly because the consequences of your decision are likely to last for the next 15-20 years.

Old, low-efficiency furnaces can become a financial drain, with high repair bills adding to the energy costs. Replacing it with a high-efficiency model may be more economical. And, with a variety of financing options available, the upfront costs become more manageable.

The Alberta Mountain Air team has over two decades of experience in installing furnaces in Calgary homes. We can advise you on the right model of high-efficiency furnace for your home, install it, and responsibly dispose of the old Ruud furnace.

All furnaces installed by our team come with 10 to 15-year warranties for parts and labour.

Frequently Asked Questions

Furnace installations depend on multiple factors — not least of which is the size of your home. However, the average cost for a new, fully installed high-efficiency furnace in Calgary is between $5,500 and $9,000, excluding add-ons. Financing plans are available to spread the upfront costs out over several months and make new furnaces more affordable.

Furnace repair costs depend on the parts and labour time required to diagnose and fix the issue. Alberta Mountain Air usually charges between $100 and $1,000 or more, depending on the complexity of the repairs.  We are transparent with our charges and will provide a reliable estimate upfront.

Typically, furnaces last 15-20 years in Calgary. This will depend greatly on the type and brand of furnace, the quality of the original installation, how often you run maintenance checks, the air quality in your home, and how you use the furnace in your household.

A furnace is a major investment. As such, it needs regular professional maintenance and any repairs should be performed only by licensed technicians. Alberta Mountain Air repair teams are skilled in the safe handling of gas and combustion systems and adhere to all local gas codes and standards for your safety. They will troubleshoot and diagnose issues efficiently to save any additional or unnecessary repairs and any work we do will not negatively affect your product warranty.

It’s common for furnace problems to occur when they’re working hardest, i.e., during cold snaps. A freezing house is not very attractive for anyone so it’s best to call a reliable furnace repair team to get you back and running ASAP. At Alberta Mountain Air, quick response times ensure that you’re not left waiting in the cold.

Most times, furnace repairs make sense over completely replacing a heating system. However, if your Ruud furnace is approaching 15 years of service or more and requires frequent repairs, it may be more cost-effective to switch to a high-efficiency furnace that will save you money on energy bills as well as repairs in the future.

The furnace installation process typically includes a visit to your home for an evaluation and a quote. If approved, the old furnace will be removed and the new one installed and tested before the cleanup. Our team will also walk you through how to use your new system and answer any questions along the way.

To prepare for this on the day of installation, we recommend you clear the working area and remove any obstructions. Please make sure someone is home when the technician arrives to grant access and check work before finishing up.

The duration of a furnace installation can vary but it typically takes our team one full day to complete an installation.

We recommend yearly maintenance to ensure your Ruud furnace is functioning at optimal performance and energy efficiency.

Aside from scheduling annual maintenance with a trusted service provider, you should replace the furnace’s filters regularly to reduce strain on your heating system.

Nearly every furnace manufacturer requires regular (and sometimes annual) furnace maintenance. Without proof of maintenance, the manufacturer may deny your warranty claims, potentially costing you thousands in unexpected repair costs.
