Furnace Maintenance A furnace is the heart of your home and this means that you need to make sure that your furnace is functioning properly. It is very important to have your furnace unit yearly inspected  You can book your heating maintenance at any time; however, we recommend that you book during the months before the cold temperature during March to September to ensure maximum flexibility in choosing an appointment time that is most convenient for you and to ensure your Heating Unit makes it through the winter without breakdowns, help reduce your energy costs and extend the life of your equipment.

Air Conditioner maintenance is the best way to ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance. It can help avoid a system failure in hot weather when you need it most.If you have enrolled in Maintenance Plan, your Plan includes an annual maintenance visit for one Cooling Unit. Cooling Maintenance can only be completed when the temperature is above 6 degrees Celsius. As a result, we recommend you book during April to mid June.

The Benefits of Preventive Maintenance

Much like a car, your high-efficiency furnace and air conditioner requires routine maintenance to protect them from the wear and tear of regular usage. By subscribing to a maintenance plan, you are protecting your investment and:

  • Increasing the lifespan of your furnace and air condition by 50%.
  • Saving up to 40% on energy bills.
  • Increasing your indoor air quality and comfort level.
  • Improving your unit’s performance

On top of that, for an appliance that runs on natural gas, carbon monoxide leak is also a pretty large concern for many people, which is why families keep a CO detector in the basement. During our maintenance, we use precision tools capable of detecting very small leaks that will not trigger your carbon monoxide detector. We also perform a list of other tasks during the maintenance visit, you can read about them blow.

Coil Cleaning

Dirty Evaporator Coils Reduce Available Cooling.

As evaporator coils cool indoor air, they dehumidify or remove moisture. Any dirt, dust, nicotine, pollen, etc. that is also in the air will combine with the moisture and eventually foul the coil. Once this occurs, two problems arise: air flow is restricted or reduced and heat transfer is restricted or reduced. All this cuts cooling capacity and, if the coil becomes extremely dirty, the compressor could be damaged.

Dirty Evaporator Coils Reduce Quality of Air Inside the Building

Going back to the discussion on moisture and combining with dirt, dust, pollen, etc., this also becomes an excellent breeding ground for biological growths like bacteria,
mold and mildew. These are the primary sources of indoor air quality problems and odors. As the air continues to flow
across the coils and circulate throughout the building, its quality is compromised.

Duct Cleaning

When contaminants build up in your air ducts and are recirculated five to seven times a day they can contribute to a number of health problems. You may notice the most common problems include eye and nose irritation, coughing, asthma, and especially allergic reactions. The sooner you have your air ducts cleaned, the sooner you can breathe easy. It’s important to note that when air ducts are being cleaned, all components of the system should be completely inspected and cleaned, including cooling coils, fans, heat exchangers, registers, grilles, diffusers, and air ducts.
