The Importance of Furnace Maintenance for The Winter Season
Before you prepare for the holiday season and get everything ready for winter, there are a few important things that you need to consider. Winter in Calgary can be very cold and harsh, and your home needs to be ready to face the weather. By ensuring that your heating system is working efficiently, you can provide your family the comfort and warmth all throughout the winter season. With a furnace tune-up, you can rest easy knowing that your heating unit is performing efficiently and safely.
Get Your Furnace Filter Checked During your Furnace Maintenance:
When your heating unit gets minimal air flow, it will not heat properly. The reason can be a dirty furnace filter. When our furnace maintenance services are performed, expert technicians will inspect your furnace parts with their state of the art equipment and techniques. As part of our many services, we also repair and replace broken parts. Ideally, you should replace your furnace filter at least every 90 days, but filter life varies on system type, usage and filter design
Get Your Humidifier Checked:
Comfort is more than just about temperature. A well functioning humidifier will maintain the ideal amount of humidity inside your home and save you money on heating bills. A good humidifier also maintains the indoor air quality of your home. A malfunctioning humidifier may also cause issues with your furnace, so during a tune-up this is one of the many items that your Horizon Heating technician will service.
Check for Leaks In Your Air Ducts:
Ask your furnace repair and maintenance service provider to check the air ducts to find any holes, leaks or loose joints. If there is a leak, you will need to get it fixed as soon as possible. A leaky duct can reduce the heat flow by allowing hot air to escape, which will eventually affect the performance of your HVAC system.
Furnace Maintenance Schedule:
To keep your furnace performance optimized, follow a regular maintenance schedule. Our organization offers a variety of furnace services to fit your many needs. Gas appliances should be checked by a qualified technician on an annual basis.
