Furnace Maintenance

Have you ever heard the quote "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?" When our harsh winter weather arrives, you'll be glad to have a well-functioning furnace in your home! One way to cut down on unexpected furnace repair costs and ensure heat is available when the temperature dips is to have your furnace inspected and maintained every year. This service is recommended in the fall before the cold temperatures arrive and can help prolong the life of your heating system. When we maintain your furnace, we check for dangerous carbon monoxide leaks, inspect the electrical connections, look for any other leaks or blockages, and change out the filter. Regular tune-ups help your unit run safely and efficiently, giving you peace of mind and lower energy bills.

Furnace Replacement Niagara

Most furnaces last an average of 18 to 20 years with routine annual maintenance, but you may choose or be forced to upgrade to a new unit before then if you find  your home or commercial space is receiving inadequate heating. Ontario's rising energy rates can also begin to eat away at the perceived savings of delaying the inevitable furnace replacement. Instead of absorbing these costs month after month, it may be more cost effective to buy a new furnace. We may recommend replacing your furnace when you experience the following:

  • Your home isn't heating evenly
  • Your home has humidity problems
  • Your furnace requires more frequent repairs
  • Increased energy costs and heating bills
  • Emergency no-heat situations
  • Furnace components are cracked or corroded

When it's time to replace your furnace, we can help you find the right replacement. We'll explain all of the features of your new unit and make sure it's properly installed by our professional, certified technicians. We stand behind the products that we sell and back them with a warranty and offer extended service plans to ensure your investment is protected for the long term.
