Avoid Furnace Breakdowns
Furnace maintenance is the best way to avoid unexpected breakdowns, which can be costly and inconvenient. Regular maintenance includes a 26-point inspection of all components, cleaning and testing. A common misconception is that duct cleaning is the same thing as a furnace maintenance.
Forced air systems push heated or cooled air throughout the home. The air carries allergens and dust which can build up in the ducts, and the coil, which impacts the efficiency of your furnace. Have your ducts cleaned to remove the lingering particles and improve your indoor air quality. Once that’s complete, it’s time to have your furnace serviced.

Common Questions About Furnace Maintenance
This can depend on a number of factors, like the builder, how much the furnace is used (and under what conditions), etc. Having said that, a typical home heating system should last 15 years or more. The key is proper care & maintenance. Give your furnace some TLC and these systems can last 20 years or more. The case can be made, though, to replace an existing system with a more energy efficient one, even if it’s say 10 years old. Talk with us to see what’s right for you.
Sure, happy to help! Here are a few pointers:
- Set your thermostat between 65F to 68F when you are at home, and less when you are away (or asleep)
- Use a programmable thermostat to save on hydro bills by using less energy when you are asleep or away (or turn the thermostat down manually)
- Replace your furnace filters regularly… as often as once a month, depending on number of people in the home and environmental factors
- Get a furnace tune-up annually
- Make certain that registers aren’t blocked by furniture or drapes, etc.
It’s generally recommended to service your furnace & HVAC system annually. What happens in an annual service? A tech (like one of our crew) will visit your home to clean and inspect all parts of the system, performing any repairs as needed (and approved by you after discussion, of course). This is a great way to keep systems working more efficiently, and it can help extend the life of your heating system greatly.
Most installations on furnaces and air conditioners are usually an 8 hour day with two technicians. You can also add in humidifiers and UV Light to your system which take less time to install as individual components.
