Why Choose a Gas Furnace?

Thinking of upgrading to a gas furnace? Here are some reasons why it might be the right choice for your Nanaimo home.


With efficiency ratings of up to 98%, gas furnaces are champs at turning fuel into heat. This means more warmth and less wasted energy, so you can enjoy a cozy home without breaking the bank.


Though they may have a higher upfront cost, gas furnaces often pay for themselves over time with their high efficiency and lower energy bills. Plus, gas is often cheaper than other fuel sources like oil or propane.


Gas furnaces are well-known for their reliability and long lifespan. They require minimal maintenance and can keep you warm for up to 20 years with proper care (and we can help with maintenance, too).

Fast heating

When the temperature drops, gas furnaces get to work quickly, heating your home in no time. That means you can relax and stay cozy even on the coldest winter days.


When installed and maintained properly, gas furnaces produce fewer emissions than oil furnaces and don’t pose a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning if properly vented.

Zoning options

Many gas furnaces come with zoning options, allowing you to only heat the areas of your home that you’re using. This leads to increased comfort and further energy savings.

Gas Furnace Installation Process



The first step is to schedule a consultation with West Temp. We’ll assess your home’s heating needs, suggest the best location for the gas furnace line installation, and provide an estimate for the installation cost.


Permitting & planning

After you’ve agreed to move forward, we’ll obtain any necessary permits and create a detailed plan for the installation. We’ll ensure that all safety measures are in place and schedule an installation day with you.



Our technicians will start the installation process, which typically takes a few hours. We’ll properly connect and secure the gas line and install all necessary safety features like shutoff valves and pressure regulators.



After the installation we’ll schedule an inspection with the local building department to ensure your furnace meets all safety and building codes. This step is required to ensure that your new gas furnace line is safe and up to code.



Once the inspector signs off, you’re good to go! We’ll provide info on how to use and maintain your new gas furnace, and can also schedule regular maintenance appointments to ensure efficient and safe operation for years to come.

Jeff from West Temp Heating and Cooling did an installation of a new propane furnace, air conditioning unit and a hot water tank.  He and his crew did an excellent job.  Very patient with us when explaining the relatively complicated thermostat.  He will come back next year to do the yearly maintenance which includes a new Hepa furnace filter. Cleaned up after themselves. Totally awesome, very happy with  Jeff and West Temp.

  • What is the average lifespan of a gas furnace?

    Gas furnaces typically last between 15 and 20 years with proper maintenance and care.

  • Can I install a gas furnace myself?

    It is not recommended to install a gas furnace yourself as it requires technical knowledge and experience to ensure that it is installed safely and correctly.

  • How can I improve the efficiency of my gas furnace?

    Regular maintenance, such as cleaning or replacing air filters and having the furnace serviced annually, can improve the efficiency of a gas furnace. Additionally, upgrading to a programmable thermostat and properly sealing and insulating ductwork can help reduce energy waste and improve efficiency.
