Furnace FAQ: 3 Reasons Why Maintenance Will Save You Money


Nope, this is not a sales pitch to get you to sign up for our maintenance program. While we think that would be great, the decision is ultimately up to you. However, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t tell you about some of the most important reasons to sign up for furnace maintenance.

Maintaining your heater isn’t just a way to keep your heater in good shape, but it’s a road towards saving money when troubling things come up. Warranties, efficiency, and preventing costly repairs can all be routinely addressed through maintenance, making sure that you’re in the loop for all possible problems that could occur. Furnace repair in Brampton, ON doesn’t have to be a nightmare, and maintenance can be the key to inexpensive heater ownership.

If you’re keen on saving money, you might want to keep reading.

Don’t Void Your Warranty

A good amount of newly installed HVAC equipment comes with a specific warranty. This warranty is meant to keep you happy while our technicians keep your heater content as well. That being said, a warranty can only be in compliance when the heater is being annually checked through maintenance.

Most furnace warranties require professional maintenance for them to be active, so if you’re looking to skip out on your yearly maintenance for a year, then say goodbye to your 10-year parts warranty (or whatever warranty you’ve got). Those warranties can be valuable for your stress and for your wallet, so don’t let go of them that easily!

Energy Efficiency

Furnaces are incredibly efficient these days. Many work with an efficiency rating between 90-95% AFUE, which means there’s almost a 1:1 ratio of energy to heat that gets produced. Compare this to an ornate wood-burning fireplace that only transfers about half of its fuel to heat, furnaces are an incredibly effective and efficient way to heat your home during the wintertime.

That being said, efficiency relies on attentive care and maintenance throughout the lifespan of your heater. A heater that is regularly neglected is going to sharply decrease in efficiency, which will cost you money in wasted fuel. If you’re looking to keep your system in tip-top shape for the foreseeable future, routine maintenance is the key to getting there.

Foresight for Repairs

Just because you got the newest, most powerful model furnace on the market doesn’t mean that repairs won’t be needed eventually. Each system needs help every now and then, and you’re going to have to pay for repairs. However, repairs don’t always have to be emergencies.

Routine maintenance can allow a technician to actively identify any parts that are misbehaving, giving you ample time to prepare for the next repair you’ll need. Instead of paying for an expensive repair that came out of the blue, you’ll be paying for repairs that you’ve seen coming—sometimes even with a maintenance discount. It sounds like a good deal, doesn’t it?

Annual maintenance is necessary to keep your furnace running as effectively and efficiently as possible, for as long as possible. Hopefully, we’ve conveyed how incredibly important that truth is.
