London's Trusted Furnace Installation and Repair Experts
Think of your furnace as the heart of your home. In the winter, it radiates warmth to your living spaces. During the summer, it plays a vital role in circulating refreshing, conditioned air from your cooling system. And all year long, your furnace can provide consistent air circulation to keep you more comfortable. Not only that, but our ENERGY STAR® qualified models do it all so efficiently your own heart might skip a beat when you see how low your utility bill is.
Today’s forced-air furnaces are available in single-stage, two-stage or multi-stage models. Think of heating stages as gears on a bicycle or a car. Single-stage models are like a bicycle with one gear. It’s great on a flat stretch of road, but takes a lot more energy to go up a steep hill. Two-stage models add a second gear, one to handle everyday heating needs, and a second gear to provide additional heating as needed. Multi-stage or modulating stage furnaces are like cruise control on your car, adjusting up and down as needed to provide comfort and efficiency as weather conditions change.
You can compare furnace efficiency among models from different manufacturers using the AFUE rating -- the higher the AFUE, the better the efficiency. Current high efficiency furnaces can be rated up to 98.5% AFUE, which can reduce utility costs over the life of the furnace. In many cases, our Carrier high efficiency furnaces also include technology that can produce enhanced comfort benefits and quieter operation as well.
When you turn to the Carrier experts at Zed-Air Heating and Air Conditioning for your home heating system needs, you’ll find a comprehensive selection of furnaces designed to fit any home and nearly any budget. Of course, the cost of a new furnace often reflects the comfort benefits, performance and length of warranties.

How important is air quality to you?
Does anyone at home suffer from asthma, allergies?
