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.

Our Navien on demand hot water went down suddenly. It not only provides hot water for everyday use but for our floor heat as well so we needed it fixed asap. I called 3 local companies that I got off the Navien website. Vision was the third one and the only company where I could get through to a live person. They were out the same afternoon which is very uncommon. They even texted me when the tech was on his way. Kevin the tech was great to deal with and did a good job troubleshooting. It turned out we needed more parts and the have a good web based system for viewing and accepting quotes. They were very responsive which I have not experienced with other local mechanical companies. A great experience thus far.

Excellent service from the time we booked with a text reminder, then Jeff came right on time, was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He fixed our outdoor fireplace and explained everything to me. We had another company come out before and they could not figure out the issue and just ghosted me after promising to come back and fix. Jeff was able to figure out the issue immediately and provided GREAT service. I highly recommend Vision Mechanical - the prior reviews live up to expectations!

Highly recommend this company. After contacting numerous plumbing companies, and having a couple no-shows and getting the run around, I reached out to Vision Mechanical. The booking process was easy, they showed up on time, and Esteban (the technician) was very friendly, knowledgeable, and thorough. I will certainly use this company again, should I need them in the future.

I used vission plumbing for few jobs in my house. Vision plumbing team is awesome. The house is old and I had to change and fix many things, from changing pipes to fixing bath overflow and installing dishwasher. Vision team helped me with all that. I had hired, unfortunately, another company (Bee's knees plumbing and heating) to install furnace and they did so wrong that I had flood in my basement for a month. I called again Dave, they came, found problem and fixed everything for me. I am definitely taking this company for any future jobs that I will have in the house. I trust them and I know I won't have any problems after they leave. Dave is amazing. For any issue he explained me what is going on and how they can fix that. Every worker from vision was very profesional and respectful. Great job vision team!!!

Contacted with them and had responses right away. Had choice of 7am!! Or 3 pm and picked 7pm. Tech: Esteban showed up on time, fixed the problem. Explained about his work and cost. Employing good employees must be good company. They also do commercial work, they did some of the work at my restaurant and again I had no issue at all and did great job!! Highly recommended!!

I have used Vision Plumbing Heating Cooling twice in the last six months, once to fix the condenser on the A/C and today to fix the furnace. They are a very responsive and professional company. I arrived home a few nights ago to find the house was an ice box as the furnace was not working. I called Vision the next day and within 24hrs they had a technician on site. His name was Jeff and he was a pleasure to deal with. He removed the motor on the furnace and showed me the source of the problem - two birds had gotten in through the exhaust vent and clogged the system so it shut itself down. He cleaned out the motor, reinstalled it and answered all of my questions. The charges were very reasonable for an hour of time spent at our home to fix the issue. I had a similar great experience with their technician in the summer time. I used Vision Plumbing Heating Cooling as prior to them I had used one of their competitors, Border Plumbing, and the experience was brutal. They sent a technician to diagnose a noisy water pipe in our mechanical room. The tech was onsite for 25min and he told me the problem was in the irrigation line, which I already knew. Then he was done and I got a bill for twice as much as what Vision charged, but Vision actually spent an hour to fix something. Border told me after the first 15min the price goes up, and in response to the negative review I wrote, they said that the technician had to drive for ~50min to get to our place, so they allocated one hour and 17 minutes to the service call, hence the charge. Jeff from Vision had to drive to our place in Kelowna from West Kelowna, spent an hour at the house, fixed a real issue with our furnace, and Vision charged half as much. Use Vision.

We had work done on our plumbing manifolds and most valves in our house . Although Vision Plumbing Heating Cooling were the most second most expensive of the four plumbing quotes we chose them. Michelle was terrific to deal with in the phone being very professional and friendly. On the day of the work Alex and Keenan arrived on time. Both were professional and courteous. They were very helpful and ensured we understood the work being performed and answered all of our questions. I give this company 5/5 for their service performed and I would hire them again. Thank You.Rick & Val MarshinewKelowna, BC

I had a plumbing emergency spring up overnight and had to shut off the water supply to the house. They were able to make room for me in their busy schedule the next day and made the repairs I needed in a quick and timely manner. I would recommend Vision Plumbing Heating Cooling to anyone seeking plumbing services, in fact l am going to call them up for a larger job I've been planning for next year.

Visions had excellent customer service and communication from the outset. Within two days of my request, Jeff came to diagnose and repair the pool heater. He is knowledgeable and respectful, thoroughly explaining the problem while repairing the heater. Thanks Vision Plumbing Heating Cooling!
