Tempstar

Tempstar furnace repair in Calgary

Tempstar is one of several brands under the International Comfort Products Corporation (ICP) umbrella, which has a strong reputation for quality and innovation in heating/cooling engineering.

The brand is a relative newcomer to the heating sector, developed in the 1980s in response to increased demands for HVAC products. Its recent focus has been on sustainability, cleaner burning, and increased efficiency. 

ICP is a subsidiary of Carrer Global, whose other brands also include Heil, KeepRite, and Lincoln, which are familiar to many Albertans. Furnaces are manufactured in Canada, as well as the U.S. and Mexico.

Tempstar furnaces have an excellent reputation for dependability but even the best-quality, best-maintained furnaces can develop problems as they age.

Whether it’s poor heating performance, cold air blowing from vents, high energy bills, leaks, strange noises, short cycling or other problems, these problems need professional attention.

Calgary homeowners can entrust their furnace repairs to the reliable team of service technicians at Alberta Mountain Air. Don’t leave your Tempstar furnace repairs—or minor issues can turn into emergencies.

Tempstar furnace installation in Calgary

A new furnace installation is a long-term investment in the comfort levels of your home. 

Besides that, upgrading to a high-efficiency model from a Tempstar furnace that is 15 years old or more often makes good economic sense. Older furnaces tend to guzzle energy and increase monthly bills—often accounting for 40-50 percent of Calgary homes’ energy usage.

Furnace installations involve some significant upfront costs but these can be defrayed with the right financing deal. At Alberta Mountain Air, we can help you manage the replacement costs of a new furnace with a variety of financing options.

With lower monthly energy bills too, there is a financial payback from a suitable high-efficiency furnace.

Our team is well qualified to advise Calgary homeowners on selecting the right furnace, installing it safely, and responsibly disposing of the old Tempstar furnace.

With the generous 10 to 15-year warranties covering both parts and labor, you get additional peace of mind that your new furnace will last the distance.

Tempstar furnace maintenance in Calgary

Professional furnace tune-ups involve:

  • A comprehensive inspection of the furnace
  • Cleaning and lubricating parts
  • Adjusting parts and settings as necessary 
  • Testing all the system’s essential components

A Tempstar furnace will greatly benefit from at least one maintenance visit per year from the team at Alberta Mountain Air. Consider it an investment in the long-term comfort and safety of your family.

Annual maintenance helps to prevent breakdowns in midwinter (when your family relies on it most), parts from wearing out and needing repairs or replacement, and energy bills from rising unnecessarily. Regular maintenance will also improve the longevity of your furnace and prevent potential health hazards and safety risks in the home.

Don’t wait for the winter chills to set in before scheduling your next Tempstar furnace tune-up…

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 Tempstar 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 Tempstar 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.
