Updated: Aug 10

Once summer gives way to fall, it’s time to turn off your air conditioner and get your heating system ready for action. Here’s why you should schedule a service call.

Inspecting & Maintaining Your Air Conditioner

Your air conditioner works every day, all summer long. By fall, it’s likely to need a bit of attention, particularly if the lubrication has been stripped off or the components have become worn out. It’s best to attend to the upkeep of your unit before winter. This way, any issues can be addressed before they go from bad to worse through neglect. Plus, you won’t have any unpleasant surprises when you start using your air conditioner next year.

A service call involves both inspection and maintenance. An HVAC technician will inspect the unit to make sure that there are no issues and that it’s running at peak efficiency. If there are any worn or damaged parts, the technician will replace them. They will then perform all the annual maintenance tasks that need to be done. This includes cleaning and lubricating the unit and topping off the refrigerant if needed.


Your Furnace Heating System

On cold winter days, a well-functioning furnace is a godsend. Here are several reasons to get your furnace serviced before the frigid weather sets in:

  • Enhanced comfort. Your furnace system can heat unevenly if it isn’t in optimal condition, and some parts of your house may be cold as a result. If your furnace has been properly maintained, it will efficiently heat your home.

  • Lower heating costs. A well-maintained furnace requires less energy to operate. If you get your system serviced in the fall, you can expect lower heating bills throughout winter.

  • To prevent breakdowns. Nobody living in Alberta wants their furnace to give out in the middle of winter. Fortunately, this is an unlikely scenario if you get your furnace serviced in the fall.

  • Increased safety. A malfunctioning furnace can pose a serious safety risk and could cause a house fire or carbon monoxide leak. During a service call, an HVAC technician will identify and repair any worn, faulty, or malfunctioning components and clean the furnace.
