Best Time for Furnace Maintenance

Best Time for Furnace Maintenance

There is no precise answer for the best time for furnace maintenance as it depends on different factors. However, the best time to maintain your furnace is twice annually in a place where all seasons are represented. For your cooling system, the best time for maintenance is early spring or late winter, and for your heating system, the best time is early fall or late summer.

If you are concerned about your furnace's condition, it is advisable to get an immediate check-up. If your furnace is almost ten years old and has not gone through maintenance for a couple of years, it is recommended to schedule one as soon as possible.

For regular furnace maintenance, the best time to schedule your tune-ups is during springs. At this time, most furnace technicians are readily available, unlike other times of the year, like winter and fall, when they are busier. Additionally, if you discover any problem, you have to consider its maintenance regardless of the years. A little diligence and foresight make sure your household sleeps warmly during winter.

Most homeowners do not maintain their furnaces during winter unless it's thermostat adjustments. This makes the furnace slip off the radar during warmer weather, and thus they end up not scheduling furnace maintenance. Avoiding this maintenance may lead to further inconveniences and unexpected expenses if your furnace malfunctions in the next winter season.

Why Schedule a Furnace Maintenance?

No matter what the weather forecast looks like, you can expect it to change to cold weather at any time. The question is whether your furnace is ready to keep your home warm and handle the cold temperature. If you are unsure of your furnace condition, you can find yourself in a frigid home and need emergency furnace services. Without a heating system, your house becomes unlivable as it gets cold quickly.

Experiencing problems with your heating system is common during cold weather. You can get after-hour service from furnace maintenance which is costly or wait for your scheduled time to get the service. One reason to schedule your furnace maintenance in middle fall or late summer is that the service will be cost-effective.

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.
