You know the old sayings. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” “Better safe than sorry.” “It takes one to know one.” Well, except for that last one, these statements of experience can easily be applied to home maintenance – and, in particular, maintenance on your home comfort system.
In the height of our Ottawa winters, for example, your heating system will be undergoing strains that were unheard of just a few months earlier. And your system is taking notice.
If it hasn’t been finely-tuned already, there’s a likely lapse in efficiency. If it isn’t ready for heavy duty action, the intense operation could be shortening its lifespan. And if it hasn’t had a safety check, an invisible, odorless but very real danger could potentially be building in your home through a carbon monoxide leak.
These are among the reasons we recommend routine maintenance on your furnace. Routine is the keyword here. Or regular, if you prefer. The point is that maintenance is ongoing. Continual. At set intervals.
You get the idea – routine. It’s simply a part of the change in seasons: maintain the furnace for winter use, the air conditioner for summer use and preserve comfort, energy efficiency and safety all year long.
Home Maintenance Plans
It’s not hard to see the benefits of routine maintenance – and being part of a maintenance agreement program with Ottawa Home Services makes these benefits even easier to achieve.
With a maintenance agreement, you get regular tune-ups, discounts on repairs, priority service – in addition to the perks of maintenance itself. And since you know it’s twice a year, you’re establishing a routine that will pay off in energy savings, longer equipment life, safety and better comfort for years to come.
