While it can feel like a pain to book, furnace maintenance is a necessary part of owning a functional and efficient furnace. Getting your fall appointment over with early is a great way to beat the crowd and ensure your furnace is ready for whatever the Ottawa winter season is going to bring. Here’s what you need to know about fall furnace maintenance, and why it’s always a good idea to get it done earlier rather than later.
What is a Furnace Maintenance Appointment?
You can think of your furnace maintenance appointment as your furnace’s annual checkup. Where we would go to the doctor for a check-up, you call a technician to come to your home to check your furnace.
During a fall furnace maintenance appointment, a licensed and expert technician will inspect your system, its key components, and its efficiency. They will also clean the system thoroughly to ensure it’s running properly, let you know of any issues they may find and schedule a repair.
The Benefits of Furnace Maintenance
There are several benefits to scheduling annual preventive maintenance for your furnace, the most important of which is that it keeps the validity of your furnace’s warranty in check, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in the event of a sudden breakdown. Other benefits of fall furnace maintenance include:
- Helps to prolong the life of your furnace
- Ensures your furnace’s efficiency
- Saves you money on energy bills
- Saves you money on potential future repairs
- Improves your indoor air quality
- Prevents future breakdowns
Why It’s Better to Book Early
During the late fall and early winter, there will be an influx of HVAC calls for repair and replacement when homeowners with old or inefficient furnaces need help to keep their homes warm. This can make it very difficult to get a service appointment as emergency repairs and replacements have skyrocketed. It’s in your best interest as a homeowner to invest in preventative maintenance before the season gets busy; not only will this help you to get prompt service, it will also ensure that you don’t end up with a broken furnace in the dead of a harsh Ottawa winter. Have peace of mind this winter by scheduling fall maintenance early this year.
Beat the crowd and schedule your early bird fall furnace maintenance.
