Did you know that nearly half of Canadians use gas furnaces to heat their homes? Regardless of what's powering your home's heating system this winter, keeping your furnace in tip-top shape is essential. With Calgary’s classic cold winters, the last thing you need is not to have a heated home!

Here's more on keeping your furnace in good shape this winter in Calgary.


Regular Furnace Maintenance


Approximately 50% of service calls can be avoided. With our Home Protection Plan, an HVAC expert will inspect your home’s system every year and perform necessary maintenance or a tune-up. Our team knows precisely what to look for, especially if your furnace is giving you trouble. Experts will check your air ducts, outdoor air compressors, valves, and burners. When water or moisture gets into your system, it can wreak havoc on your heated home. A furnace crew can recommend possible fixes before there's a bigger problem. Safety is also an excellent reason to have regularly scheduled maintenance. A furnace not working correctly can cause a fire in your home. You also run the risk of causing carbon monoxide poisoning. A professional will ensure you have a winterized furnace. Save money on your heating bills with a more efficient system thanks to a professional inspection! A winterized furnace will also keep your furnace lasting a long time.


Update Filters


Your furnace air filters should be replaced every few months. Filters could change the air quality in your heated home. New air filters reduce the number of allergens, including mould, pet dander, and dust. We’ve learned that approximately 10% of Canadians suffer from asthma and keeping your HVAC system in good shape can reduce the number of attacks. Not to mention, healthy indoor air means fewer doctor visits. You'll spend less time at home being sick!


Get A Good Thermostat


Considerations of house maintenance should include a good thermostat for your home. Smart thermostats make your furnace system run more efficiently and reduce heating expenses. Smart thermostats allow you to control your home's temperature when you're not home. You can even do this using your smartphone and can set a schedule to heat your home. A smart thermostat will track your energy use. Over the long term, you'll use less energy. Some utility companies might even give you a rebate for using this technology.
