Are you a homeowner who has been anxiously putting off furnace inspection due to fear of exorbitant costs? Fear no more!
In reality, annual furnace inspections can save you thousands of dollars, keep your family safe and healthy, and prevent your furnace from failing when you need it the most. Even if your inspection reveals it’s time for a new furnace, replacing your HVAC system has never been more affordable.
How Inspections Save You Money & Protect Your Family’s Health
All furnace manufacturers recommend annual inspections and maintenance by a qualified technical in their warranties. Damage to the unit resulting from a lack of maintenance will often not be covered. Having your furnace break down in the middle of winter is not only a major inconvenience, it can cost you thousands of dollars in damage from other consequential disasters such as frozen water pipes. Regular inspections and preventative maintenance are the most cost effective way to avoid expensive major repairs and ensure the safety and comfort of your family within your home.
A lack of maintenance can lead to your family being left in the cold – and it can also lead to serious health risks. Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless gas that can cause headaches, dizziness, and fatalities. Carbon monoxide is produced when fossil fuels, such as natural gas, don’t burn completely. Furnace inspections reveal possible leaks and can highlight areas in need of repair in order to prevent future potential leaks from developing.
