As we head into summer in the Okanagan, scheduling an appointment to service your furnace is probably the last thing on your mind.

Now is the perfect time to have your furnace and heating system inspected, serviced and cleaned.

Fall will be here soon enough and being prepared now can make a difference.

Even if your furnace was not causing you any issues this past winter, it is still a good idea to get it inspected and serviced.  Just like your vehicle, having your furnace regularly maintained and inspected ensures it is running optimally and efficiently.  If there are any parts that are beginning to wear, detecting them early can save expensive and inconvenient repairs in the future.  An efficient furnace is less expensive to operate as well, saving you money on your power bills next winter.  A clean heating system ensures that the air quality in your home is higher as well, making for a healthier home.  Lastly, a well maintained furnace is quieter, making your home more comfortable as well as warm in the winter.

It makes sense to regularly maintain your furnace and heating system, but why do it now?

The first reason is to beat the rush.  Just like booking your snow tire changeover for the day of the first snowfall, waiting for the first cold spell means that you will be competing with everyone else to book service appointments.  Doing so now allows you to schedule an appointment when it is most convenient for you, without worrying about needing the furnace to operate now.  You can choose your time and know it is done well in advance of being needed.

Fall can creep up on us quickly and you don’t want to discover that you have an issue with your furnace when you really need it.

By having your maintenance and service done now, you avoid expensive and inconvenient emergency calls and have the peace of mind of knowing that it will work efficiently, cleanly and quietly when fall does arrive.

Another good reason to have your maintenance and servicing done now is to avoid any service interruptions.  If your heating system does require any significant work, you can schedule it when it works for you.  Being without your furnace for a few days in July or August is not an issue, but being without it for a few days at the start of a cold fall or winter season can be very difficult.

There are many good reasons to have your furnace and heating system serviced and inspected this summer.  Call the experts at Vision Plumbing Heating Cooling to book your appointment now.  Vision Plumbing, Heating and Cooling can take care of all your furnace and heating needs.
