Before the cold weather sets in, you want to know the furnace is running reliably. An unexpected breakdown could mean more than a chilly night, it could mean frozen water pipes too. It’s also about safety. A cracked heat exchanger could let odourless, poisonous Carbon Monoxide seep into a home.

Certain maintenance is easy, like replacing the filter, however, it’s a good idea to have the furnace professionally inspected and cleaned annually. That includes:

  • Safety test for Carbon Monoxide (CO)
  • Check for debris in the chimney
  • Clean air filters
  • Check thermostat
  • Check and clean gas pilot safety system
  • Clean motor and fan
  • Clean burners and set for proper combustion
  • Check gas connection to furnace

A well-adjusted heating system offers safety, peace-of-mind, and saves money too.
