Why is it important to have Regular Maintenance on my home comfort equipment?

Why is it important to have regular maintenance on my home comfort equipment?

We're glad you asked!

You wouldn¹t buy a brand new car and never expect to have to air the tires, change the oil, and check out any unusual noises, would you? Well, in the same way it is important to have regular inspections of your comfort equipment by a qualified technician. Just as a well running car can get the best gas mileage and keep you safe on the road, properly running home comfort equipment will run more efficiently and keep you comfortable and safe in your home.


As a matter of fact, good warranties can make you complacent about the need for regular inspections for your home comfort system. While many extended warranties are sound investments, they can lead some homeowners to a false sense of safety and reliability. If not inspected and maintained there are many things which over the years can compromise your comfort equipment¹s performance and reliability.

Prevent problems before they start

One of the best ways to avoid problems with your home comfort equipment is to prevent them from occurring. The best way to do that is scheduling regular maintenance. Consider the purchase of a planned service agreement and head off problems before they start. Even the best equipment, if not maintained properly could cause problems. Changes made to your home during remodeling or careless activity can result in kinks, blockages and even leaks in your ductwork, which can lead, to poor airflow, discomfort and even higher utility bills.

Benefits of Planned Service

Having your equipment services on a regular basis has many benefits for you:

  • Regular service lengthens the life of the equipment by keeping it in good working condition.
  • It maintains efficient operation which saves you energy dollars.
  • It will save you money by eliminating costs of needed repairs and reducing any major repair expenses.
  • It will establish you as a priority customer, which you¹ll appreciate if you ever needed cooling during the hot days of summer or heating during the coldest blizzard of the year.
  • It assures you of service by trained experienced technicians from an established dealership who will be there when you need them.
  • Regular service protects you warranty.

Planned service agreements will help your home safe

Carbon Monoxide in your home is a threat to your safety, but it is a threat that is preventable. Cars and trucks, lawn equipment, water heaters, stoves, clothes dryers, furnaces, space heaters, and other combustion appliances are some of the potential sources of carbon monoxide. Though designed to be safe and not produce carbon monoxide, home heating systems are only one of the many sources. In addition negative pressure in your home, coupled with improper venting of combustion products, can lead to carbon monoxide entering your living space. Negative pressure can be caused by central vacuum systems, high volume kitchen range hoods, counter top range exhaust systems, bathroom exhaust fans and particularly fireplaces which can remove an enormous amount of air from your home when burning.

Prevention is the most important step to reduce carbon monoxide problems. That¹s why it is important to schedule annual maintenance by a qualified technician to check combustion appliances to insure they are operating properly and that all chimneys and vents are connected properly and free of blockages.

Comfort systems protection

Extended warranties can offer complete parts and labour protection for the next 5 or 10 years. You can rest easy knowing that you won¹t have to sweat the bill. In addition, to extended warranties a planned service agreement offers the additional protection and peace of mind knowing that the equipment is both efficient, safe and that your comfort is maximized.
