At Diamond Willow, we provide high-quality furnace installation, maintenance, and repair services to Cochrane, Alberta, and surrounding areas.
The typical furnace has a life span of 15 years. Some of them can last for 20 years or more without suffering a noticeable decrease in efficiency. But they can’t accomplish that by themselves. A furnace needs to be cleaned, cared for, and maintained if it’s going to last more than a decade.
Annual furnace maintenance from a licensed and insured provider like Diamond Willow is an important part of this process. It can easily double the lifespan of the appliance and significantly reduce its operating costs.
What happens when a furnace stops working as well as it should? Maybe it’s not turning on, not producing enough heat, or maybe it’s making an excessive amount of noise. That’s where furnace repair services come into play. Diamond Willow provides regular maintenance and tune-ups and furnace repair services.
And what if a repair just isn’t enough to get that furnace back to its optimal operating conditions? When furnace repair isn’t enough, the only solution is to install a new furnace. If you haven’t already guessed, Diamond Willow handles new furnace installations, as well. This makes Diamond Willow the one-stop-shop for all furnace-related services in the Cochrane, Alberta area.
Experts recommend that furnaces receive regular maintenance, at least once every 12 months. Only with scheduled maintenance can a homeowner expect to keep their furnace working as efficiently as the day they purchased it.
Maintenance will extend the lifespan of the appliance, help maintain low operating costs, and provide technicians with the chance to spot small problems before they become big disasters.
Three Basic Maintenance Tasks
There are a few tasks that are performed on furnaces during maintenance. First, the repair technician will check for any visual signs of damage or aging. This includes holes, leaks, rust, and dents.
The vent system, as well as the heat exchange, both require careful inspection. If any damage is spotted, then it may be repaired on the spot or a follow-up repair service may be required.
Next, the filters will need to be inspected and very likely replaced. It’s recommended that homeowners inspect their filters on a regular basis because it has a significant impact on the operating conditions of the appliance. A clogged filter will greatly reduce a furnace’s efficiency and it will prevent the filter from doing its job.
Finally, the technician will need to ensure that the burner is operating properly, according to the specifications of the appliance. These three tasks are performed in each maintenance visit, but they certainly aren’t the only required tasks. Additional steps are usually required, depending on the make and model of the furnace being maintained.
Homeowners who have recently moved into a new home, or who have not maintained their furnace over the years may notice that it’s not operating as it should.
Furnaces are built to be tough, but they aren’t invincible. If not maintained, they can encounter several problems that should not be ignored. As with most appliances, the longer you ignore a problem, the more serious it becomes and the more it costs you in the long run.
Furnace maintenance and repair are two important parts of being a homeowner that should never be overlooked. Don’t wait until it’s too late to have your appliances serviced.
