Especially as the seasons change, there are specific tasks that need to get done before it gets too cold!

There really is no bad time to schedule furnace maintenance, just make sure it gets done before the first frost hits. If there are any repairs that need to get done, you will want them completed before you’re relying on the furnace.


Scheduling Furnace Maintenance

As previously mentioned, we recommend having your furnace inspected before the cold weather hits. An annual inspection either in the spring or early fall will ensure your furnace is in good working order. HVAC technician working on repairing a furnace

An inspection in the spring means that you’ll have the technicians in right after a season of use. If you noticed any issues with your furnace throughout the winter, they will be fresh in your mind.

An inspection in the fall is usually when most homeowners call for an inspection since everyone is getting ready for winter. Since this is a popular time of year, it means a lot of HVAC technicians are busy! So make sure you call ahead to make sure you can secure a time that works best for you.


Benefits of a Professional Furnace Inspection

There are several benefits to having your furnace inspected by a professional. Here are our top reasons:



In Ottawa, the temperature drops below zero quite often. If your furnace unexpectedly stops working, getting stuck in those cold temperatures is not safe!furnace inspector checking for block vents

An inspection can provide you with the peace of mind that there are no small issues with your furnace that will lead to larger issues down the road. A technician can also ensure you don’t have any blocked vents, cracked heat exchangers, or dirty burners.


Saves Money

When you have your furnace inspected, you’re taking a preventative approach.

A technician will be able to do a thorough inspection and save you the hassle of dealing with an unexpected issue in the middle of the winter. Small repairs usually end up turning into larger, more costly issues if they are ignored.


Extend the Lifespan

The average lifespan of a furnace is about 12 to 20 years. If you’re not keeping up with the maintenance and car, it may not even make it to 10 years.

We’ve worked with many homeowners over the years and the ones who are scheduling maintenance annually are seeing their systems last a lot longer than the average!
