Our Company: The Mr. Furnace Story

Our family has been in the heating and air conditioning industry for over 47 years! We saw a need in the Winnipeg market for a dependable family-run heating company. Our family also owns and operates Furnasman New Homes. Furnasman New Homes has been doing new home installations in Winnipeg for over 70 years. We were receiving calls at Furnasman from satisfied customers wanting us to install replacement furnaces and air conditioners (as well as other equipment) in friends and family members’ homes. We were already doing the 24-hour emergency service for our Furnasman customers and found that they were very pleased with our service. We had many requests wanting us to continue our service after the products came off warranty.


New & Old Homes

By offering both new home and replacement home comfort products with Furnasman New Homes as well as Mr. Furnace Heating, we really do understand indoor air quality from the ground up. Our people are licensed professionals who are continually trained to give our customers the quality they deserve. We have the Furnasman New Home people to give us the technical expertise with airflow, air quality and sizing that we sometimes require, and we have Mr. Furnace’s trained technicians to help out with our furnace, air conditioning, heat recovery ventilation systems and water heater repairs as are sometimes needed. Together, we cover it all.

A Family Affair

Two family members, Tara Smith and Leo Klinkhammer decided we should be in the retrofit furnace, air conditioner and indoor air quality business. They started Mr. Furnace, incorporating the same family values they have used throughout their business years. Leo and Tara have over 60 years of experience in the heating and cooling industry between them.


Both Mr. Furnace and Furnasman New Homes always obtain the necessary permits and abide by all provincial rules and regulations whenever installing furnaces, air conditioners, water heaters and heat recovery ventilators. Manufacturers recommend Mr. Furnace because they know “We do it right or we make it right.” Safety is very important to us. We want our people to work safely to ensure the welfare and protection of your family.

Customer Focused

Mr. Furnace and Furnasman New Homes work out of the same building and share the same passion; which is to look after our customers’ home comfort needs! We treat people the way we like to be treated. This is filtered up from our employees to our customers who we work very hard to keep happy.

We are proud of our reputation for looking after customers and keeping them for life. “Treat everyone fairly” we always say. We at Mr. Furnace and Furnasman New Homes live, work and attend school in this great city. We are proud to be active members of our community and part of Winnipeg’s growing success.
