New Year’s Resolution: Toronto Furnace Maintenance

New Years Eve was a cold night in Toronto and the rest of the GTA. Whether you had a quiet night in or you were at a party somewhere else the comfort of the night was partially dependent on the furnace keeping everyone warm. Toronto furnace maintenance specialists Furnace Pro Inc receive lots of call throughout December and on New Years Eve each year when someone’s furnace fails them. Sometimes the problems stem from a very old furnace that needs replacing, but more often than not the reason for furnace failure is lack of regular maintenance.

Toronto Furnace Maintenance Matters

When it comes to properly maintaining your furnace it’s important to schedule an annual appointment with a reputable and professional Toronto furnace maintenance company like Furnace Pro Inc. This regular maintenance appointment will ensure that your furnace is ready to defend your home against the deep cold of winter that sets in every year.

In addition to a professional Toronto furnace maintenance appointment it’s also important to take certain steps yourself to ensure your furnace is working properly. Here are a few things that every homeowner can take care of themselves:

  • Replace The Furnace Filter: Replacing the furnace filter is the easiest maintenance task you can take care of to ensure your furnace is operating properly. The furnace filter traps dust, dirt and other debris as the air circulates through your home and the furnace itself. Furnace filters should be replaced at least every 3 or 4 months to ensure the air quality in your home is good enough for your family.
  • Clean The Furnace: The furnace filter will catch the majority of dust and dirt that passes through your furnace, but some debris will also end up in other parts of your furnace. Cleaning other parts of the furnace is fairly simple. The blower assembly is typically beside the filter panel and cleaning the dust and dirt off the blower and it’s components will not only improve the air quality but also the furnace’s efficiency.
  • Vacuum The Duct System: Keeping the furnace intake clear of dust and debris is essential to the cleanliness of your furnace and its efficiency. It’s also important to properly clean all the other vents and ductwork that runs throughout your home. Keeping these components clean will help improve the efficiency of your entire system and reduce the amount of dust in your home.

Winter Furnace Maintenance

Winter Furnace Maintenance

Winter has a way of creeping up on us and before you know it the leaves have called off the trees, snow is on the ground, and the cold has set in for the winter. Now is the time for winter furnace maintenance. Waiting too long to find out if your furnace needs repairs or a tune up could result in it leaving you and your family out in the cold. When winter hits your furnace works around the clock to keep your home warm and toasty, so it’s important to ensure its running efficiently and safely.

Benefits of Winter Furnace Maintenance

Whether you live in Toronto, York Region or anywhere else in the GTA your furnace is used a lot through the winter months and can experience a high amount of wear and tear. Alternatively, in the summer when your furnace isn’t being used at all corrosion and seizing of parts can occur as well. Proper winter furnace maintenance services from a reputable company like Furnace Pro Inc can ensure your furnace is in tip-top condition and running as efficiently as possible after a long summer or during winter.

Regular winter furnace maintenance can help prevent damage to your furnace from overuse and under-use, as well increase its reliability and prevent breakdowns. Here are a few simple reasons to get winter furnace maintenance done before the first snowfall:

  • A small winter furnace maintenance investment now can save you money on costly repairs later on.
  • Save yourself some time by fixing smaller problems now before they’re bigger problems later.
  • Reduce the risk of frozen pipes when your furnace breaks down.
  • Stay in the good graces of your family and tenants by avoiding a furnace breakdown.
  • Avoid any health and safety risks.

Everyone knows that you should change you filter on a regular basis, but you should also get winter furnace maintenance performed on a regular basis. For more information about professional HVAC services contact Furnace Pro Inc today at 647-547-6094 or info@furnacepro.ca.
