Why Furnace Maintenance Is So Important

Service technician with a customer. Plumbers, electricians, cable repair, etc.

A common question we often get from our customers is, “Do I really need to get my furnace tuned up every year?” Well, the answer is yes, you really should. If you want the absolute best performance from your furnace, we’re not exaggerating when we say maintenance is the optimal way to achieve that.

Maintenance offers many other benefits that definitely pay for themselves over time. So there’s no need to keep Googling “heater maintenance near me.” Getting a tune-up for your furnace is easy with our team. Let’s go over all the benefits.

It ensures your HVAC system is working properly.

You don’t want to run the risk of your furnace breaking down on the coldest day of the year or on a holiday when you’re having family over. However, roughly 70% of the repairs that we perform on furnaces are due to a lack of maintenance.

During a maintenance visit, our technicians will check to make sure everything is working smoothly and efficiently. If you have any concerns about how it’s been performing, we can address those during maintenance and see if we can come up with a possible cause.

It helps your HVAC system run as efficiently as possible.

With our cold winters in Ontario, homeowners are used to paying a lot for their utilities. Instead of overpaying for your utilities, why not pay for a tune-up instead?

If you want to get the most energy efficiency from your furnace, maintenance is the way to go. That’s because after we clean and check the furnace’s components and make sure it’s running as it should, your furnace is set up for optimal performance. You should see a difference in your utility bills.

It’s essential for the life of your HVAC system.

Your furnace is one of the biggest investments in your home. As such, you need to protect it and make sure that it will serve you for a long time to come. Maintenance maximizes the lifespan of a furnace. A 10-15 year lifespan is normal but this is only for furnaces that have been maintained on an annual basis. 

The best way to guard against a pre-emptive replacement is through regular tune-ups. No homeowner ever wants to have to replace a furnace early. That’s why maintenance is money well spent because it’s an investment in your equipment.

It’s important for your family’s health and safety.

Both gas and electric furnaces run the risk of safety issues. Although they are rare, they do occur. The risk is even greater with a gas furnace or with older, outdated furnaces. 

During maintenance, our technicians will check for any potential gas leaks. We also check all the wiring and connections to make sure that everything looks how it should to avoid the risk of an electrical fire. Don’t gamble with your family’s safety, especially if you have a gas furnace. Scheduling maintenance is a way to achieve peace of mind knowing that your furnace is operating safely.
