Emergency Furnace Services In Toronto

Winter is coming and if you have an old furnace that might be near the end of its life you might need emergency furnace services this winter. Furnaces are machines and just like other machines they break down from time to time, especially as they get older.

When You Need Emergency Furnace Services

Let’s be honest, there’s never a good time for your furnace to break down. It typically happens when the load on your furnace is at its highest. When the dead cold of winter hits and your furnace has been running for days to keep you and your family warm it might run into some problems. It’s difficult to predict what will break on an older furnace, but you can always count on emergency furnace services to help.

You might think emergency furnace services aren’t necessary. Your furnace breaking down might not seem like an emergency because you can just put on an extra blanket and wait until the next available appointment. The problem with that thinking is there are numerous things that can go wrong as your home gets colder and your furnace operates with malfunctioning parts.

If your house gets too cold there is a big risk of your pipes freezing and bursting, which can lead to expensive repairs and water damage. If your furnace is still running but isn’t working very well and needs repairs you might be doing additional damage by letting it operate. When you realize your furnace needs repairing it’s important to turn it off instead of allowing it to run. Some components can be damaged as other components break, so turning it off is the best way to proceed.

A few blankets and winter coats might work in the short-term, but it’s important to keep your home warm as well as your family.

The Importance Of A Furnace Inspection

Call it what you will, furnace maintenance, furnace inspection, furnace repair, taking care of your furnace is an essential part of ensuring its reliability, efficiency and longevity.

Your furnace is an important part of your home. It moves the air around, filters it, and heats it in the winter. It reduces allergens and dust, and improves the overall air quality in your home. It addresses moisture issues and maintains a healthy level of humidity in your home, even in the winter.

Common problems with your furnace that can be found by a professional furnace inspection can be:

  • Loose ductwork resulting from normal thermal expansion and contraction.
  • The need to lubricate the blower motor bearings.
  • The needs to replace the air filter and clean the dust out off the blower fan blades and AC condensing coil.

An inspection can also find and repair less than obvious problems like:

  • A loose blower belt
  • A blocked condensate drain
  • An aging or loose wiring harness

The best way to keep your furnace operating efficiently is to have a furnace inspection prior to when you need your furnace the most. When cold weather hits you don’t want to be worried about how well your furnace is operating, you simply want to turn it on and enjoy the warm comfort it provides.

Professional Furnace Inspection

A properly certified and licensed HVAC technician will run a diagnostic check on your furnace to ensure its operating as efficiently as possible. They’ll perform safety tests to monitor any gas leaks or CO2 levels, so you can rest assured that your furnace is running safely. Furnace inspection will also ensure that all the various components of your furnace are running properly like the blower motor, the humidifier, and any other mechanical element. A furnace inspection also takes the stability and cleanliness of your duct system into account and let’s you know if there are any glaring problems.

Between Each Furnace Inspection

In between each semi-annual furnace inspection here’s one easy thing you can do yourself to keep your furnace running well.

Change your furnace filter:

  • This doesn’t need to be a scheduled thing, but should be done at least once every few months, or sooner if you check it and notice that it’s especially clogged.
  • This also helps maintain healthy airflow throughout your home.
  • Changing your air filter reduces the load on your fan motor, as it’s easier to move air through the system with a clean filter.
  • A new air filter reduces the allergens, dust and other airborne particles in your home.

Summer Furnace Maintenance Services

Just because it’s summer and you’ve turned off your furnace for the season doesn’t mean you should be finished with your furnace just yet. After a long hard fall and winter where your furnace worked hard to keep you and your family cool it’s time to ensure that it’s shut down properly maintained for the summer. Summer furnace maintenance services are an essential part of your HVAC maintenance regimen and can ensure your furnace is working properly and ready for the fall when it inevitably arrives again.

The Importance of Summer Furnace Maintenance Services

Heating your home in the fall and winter isn’t the first thing that comes to mind during the beautiful hot summer months. However, summer is the ideal time to fix your furnace because you aren’t relying on it for anything. Without proper servicing and maintenance prior to fall and winter you can’t be completely sure it will work properly and might fail when you need it most. You might also have to wait for a service appointment because fall and early winter are very busy times of year.

Professional Furnace Maintenance Services

Hiring a reputable and experienced HVAC technician from a company like Furnace Pro Inc is the best way to ensure your furnace is thoroughly inspected and properly maintained. A good HVAC technician will take care of the following:

  • Clean out all dirt, dust and debris from your furnace and it’s related components.
  • Test the airflow into and out of your furnace as well as throughout your ductwork.
  • Check and test the pilot light and test the burner if your particular type of furnace has them.
  • Inspect and lubricate all parts that move or have mechanisms.
  • Check the flue.
  • Inspect the overall condition of the furnace and all of it’s related components.
  • Discuss the thermostat settings and provide advice to save you money.
  • Complete a full safety test of your furnace to ensure it’s not leaking carbon monoxide and that none of the gas connections are faulty.
  • Ensure that all areas are even heated as needed.

All makes and models of furnace can benefit from a thorough inspection. Furnace Pro Inc can also help you file a warranty claim against your furnace if it still applies, so your repairs and maintenance might be covered.

Homeowner Furnace Maintenance

Throughout the year there are a few things that each homeowner can do to ensure their furnace is operating properly. Inspecting and changing the furnace filter regularly is one of the most important things you can do to keep your furnace running efficiently. A clogged filter makes your furnace work harder to send heated air throughout your home, and if you also have a central air conditioner this filter applies to that as well.

Homeowners should also install and regularly check carbon monoxide detectors. While these are important for the safety of you and your family they can also identify a malfunctioning furnace. It’s also a good idea to pay attention to any new or strange noises coming from your furnace during operation. Typically it should make the same amount and types of noise all the time, when something new appears that means that something has changed and should be inspected by a professional.
