heating repair & heating replacement

heating repairs

Heating is a broad topic but when it comes to British Columbia we can narrow our focus down to 3 categories quite easily. The main sources of heat in our province that our company also specializes in are Boilers, Furnaces, and Heat pumps. They are all great sources of heat and our specialized technicians / heating repair man can service, install, repair and replace them all!

What system do you have in your home?

Boilers heat up hot water which is then moved via pumps through pipes to either hot water baseboards, radiant infloor heating, or the old school stand up cast iron radiators. The water then runs back to the boiler where it is heated up again, and continuously runs through that “loop” until your thermostat notifies the boiler that the room/house has reached the desired temperature. Unlike furnaces which blow hot air out of vents in your floor, the boiler heats water which heats the baseboard heater, your floor or the old school radiators we mentioned which then radiates heat throughout the house.


A furnace is what we call a “forced air” system. Furnaces use a blower motor to blow air across a heat exchanger which is heated up by a natural gas flame. That air leaves the furnace hot and is then blown through your home’s duct work to individual registers or vents which are generally located in the floor of each room in your home. The registers blow hot air and the air is what heats your home. When looking for heating repair near me ; Choose JJ&A!

heat pump

Central Heat Pump systems are air conditioning systems that can also provide heating to your home. Despite the name, heat pumps do not generate heat – they move heat from one place to another. A furnace creates heat that is distributed throughout a home, but a heat pump absorbs heat energy from the outside air (even in cold temperatures) and transfers it to the indoor air. 

When in cooling mode a heat pump and an air conditioner are functionally identical, absorbing heat from the indoor air and releasing it through the outdoor unit. To conclude, a heat pump is an air conditioning unit with the capability of reversing its operations from absorbing heat from the inside of the house and expelling it outside the house to absorbing heat from the outside the house and expelling it inside the house.
