The Right Furnace for Your Vancouver Island Home
Furnaces provide high-temperature heating through fuel combustion, electricity, or induction heating, and provide effective heating throughout the colder months through wall or floor vents in your home. High-efficiency forced-air furnace systems are a popular choice with homeowners in Victoria, as they quickly deliver heated air through registers in every room of the home.
West Bay Mechanical offers a range of furnaces to suit your home-heating needs. We sell and install furnaces from some of Canada’s most trusted brands, including Lennox, Rinnai, and Daikin.

The following are some frequently asked questions about our furnaces in Victoria and the surrounding areas:
How Long Does a Furnace Last?
The duration of your furnace's life will depend entirely on factors such as the model, your usage, frequency of maintenance and more. Generally speaking, a furnace should last between 15-20 years with regular maintenance.
How Do I Know There Has Been a Carbon Monoxide Leak?
You can never tell if there has been a carbon monoxide leak because it doesn't release a smell or taste, and you can't see it. It is best to install a carbon monoxide detector in your home.
How Often Should I Maintain My Furnace?
We recommend having your furnace serviced once a year to increase efficiency and prolong its life. This preventative maintenance will pay for itself over time.
When Should I Replace My Furnace?
There is no set standard for when you should replace your furnace because every model is different. However, some common signs that it might be time to replace your furnace are:
- Your furnace is older than 20 years old.
- You have to call for repairs frequently.
- Your energy bills have risen.
- Your furnace doesn't work efficiently.
