Let’s talk about your furnace. You know, that box that sits next to your water heater, or perhaps on its own in the depths of your basement.

Did you know that in order to maximize your furnace’s efficiency it should be cleaned every year?

The cost associated with having a plumber clean your furnace is incomparable to the cost of having an emergency serviceman dispatched on a cold winter (or early spring) night! When searching for a local plumber to clean or repair your furnace you will want to search online for furnace and ac repair, the reason being is the majority of tradesman that can fix or service your furnace also work on air conditioning as well, and as air conditioning is more popular the majority of tradesman tend to advertise for air conditioning services first and furnace services as an additional service even though they are fully trained in both.

There are many benefits to having a high-efficiency furnace installed in your home. High-efficiency furnaces can save you hundreds of dollars a year in heating costs. A furnace with an efficiency of 89% or higher can typically deliver heat savings of 20% to 35% more when compared to old furnaces. Furnaces from 1970 and earlier are in the 60% AFUE range! Older furnaces are also more susceptible to being damaged which might just leave you having to search furnace repair more often than you think.

Good news: You can offset the cost of having your high efficiency furnace installed and ensure that you keep your heating bills lower by servicing your furnace every year. Did you know there is even Fortis BC rebates available for installing a new furnace? In the long run, your furnace will have paid for itself in energy savings, and you’ll be helping the environment too!
