Furnace Maintenance in Nanton
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure
It’s easy to neglect your furnace, after all it isn’t needed in the summer months – the furnace is out of sight and out of mind. When the weather starts to change we often will remember to change the furnace filter and we give the furnace a quick test run – the furnace comes on and is blowing warm air, no problem.
A couple of months later, when the winter weather really starts to set in we start to see temperatures in the minus double digits. Now your furnace has to work overtime to keep your home warm and comfortable.
When the furnace is cycling on several times per day is when the weakest part of the system will fail. The quick test that you performed back in September when the low temperature of the day was 6 degrees Celsius was not a sufficient stress test to reveal the part that was worn out and in danger of failing when the high temperature of the day is -23 degrees Celsius.
Professional repairmen don’t guess
When you hire a professional HVAC company to maintain your gas fired furnace, we’re not guessing if the parts are functioning as they should be. We have the training and the tools to properly assess your furnace and all of its parts. We’re looking for the parts that are worn out and out of specification because we know that those are the parts that are going to fail when you need your furnace the most.
When we do find a part that isn’t up to the job, we replace that part with factory OEM parts that were specifically designed for your furnace. Your furnace is brought back to its original operating specifications as was intended by the engineers and manufacturer that designed and built the furnace.
Those people designed your furnace to be able to handle the demands placed upon the machine during the long winters in Canada. They weren’t guessing when they designed and built your furnace.
Emergency repairs are expensive
As a professional HVAC service company, we will respond to any heating emergency at any time of the day or night. That is our commitment to our customers and we honor that commitment faithfully. Unfortunately, with that commitment comes a cost. Our call-out and hourly rates are more than double our regular day rates. If you need us to come out to your house at 2:00 A.M. to repair your furnace on a cold winter night it will be a costly and painful experience for you.
Furnace tune ups are inexpensive
Compared to the cost of an emergency furnace call, a tune up is inexpensive. We charge 165 dollars plus tax to come to your house and thoroughly inspect and tune your furnace. No hourly fees, no service call fees, and for the majority of tune ups there are no parts fees either.
We come to your house and spend between two and three hours going through the electrical system, the gas system, and the air delivery system of your furnace. We inspect the heat exchanger for cracks and signs of potential trouble. We clean the furnace case and blower wheel and provide you with a new furnace filter.
Finally, we provide you with a comprehensive and detailed report of the condition of your furnace and all of its components. If any of the parts are worn out we provide you with a quotation for the replacement cost of the part and our labour cost to replace the part as well.
Peace of Mind
Ultimately, when you get your furnace tuned up, you are buying peace of mind that you won’t have a heating emergency during a cold Canadian winter. Why not give 404 Refrigeration & HVAC Services a call at (587) 575 – 2111 to schedule a furnace service today, and get the peace of mind that comes with knowing your furnace is well maintained?
