Owning a home can sometimes be a mixed blessing. Sure, there are the benefits of having your own space, storage for your things, and a communal place for your family. At the same time, it means having to maintain the home, problem solve, and sometimes spend money. In addition, it requires thinking critically and taking proactive steps to ensuring that small problems do not grow in size.
Thankfully, there are plenty of professionals who can save you time and money. In particular as we enter fall and winter approaches, many homeowners are having their furnaces inspected by professional HVAC technicians. What do they know that you don’t? Let’s find out.
1. Cost & Efficiency
It should come as no surprise that once the temperatures begin to dip in Canada, homeowners across the country want to crank the heat. The more inefficient the furnace is, the more energy it will require to produce the same comfortable temperature. When your gas or electric bill comes, you will notice a dramatic increase in the bill. By having your furnace inspected by a professional HVAC technician in the fall, you can ensure that it is at peak performance during the winter, providing you with the most amount of heat for least amount of energy used.
2. Furnace Health
How healthy is your furnace? Is it making disconcerting sounds? If you have any question as to whether or not your furnace will survive the winter, then you should have it checked out immediately. Along with costing you more money if no action is taken, you stand a chance of having your furnace give out on you during the coldest months of the year. This can lead to a miserable few weeks as a new furnace will take some time to be installed right. In addition, providing some maintenance beforehand can stop you from having to buy a brand new furnace for a few more years, giving you time to find one at a cost that works for you.
3. The Best Time For Downtime
If you have to replace your furnace, then it is best to do it at a time when it is not going to be cold. As early to mid-fall provides comfortable weather, everyone would rather have their furnace inspected or replaced during October or November instead of during the dead of winter.
