When dealing with Furnace cleaning

Furnaces allow homes to stay heated and warm during chilly Canadian winters, but just like a vehicle, they need regular maintenance to stay in operation. Furnaces keep your home nice and toasty, but they also help to keep your pipes from freezing in the winter, which can turn into an expensive and time-consuming mess. Furnace cleaning should be done regularly, usually once a year. However, you may need a furnace cleaning if you hear abnormal noises coming from your furnace or smell anything unpleasant. Noises indicate a problem with belts or relays. Usually, they will need to be swapped out for new ones. If you smell dust, it just means the filter is in need of a change. However, if you smell gas, or if you have any concerns, it's time to call in a Need A Plumber Canada. With over 20 years in the business, we'd be happy to do maintenance, make needed repairs or replacements, or even just check that your furnace is ready for winter.

Furnace cleanings aren't as long or convoluted as they used to be, due to advances in furnace technology. With today's models, a furnace cleaning in Calgary is one of two things: cleaning out dust or animal hair that has accumulated, or most likely, restarting the furnace. If you have asthma or allergies, keeping your furnace clean will make breathing easier. Additionally, furnaces that accumulate lots of dust run less efficiently, costing you money.

Furnaces are very self-regulating today. If a furnace senses any type of problem, it usually turns itself off. If this happens, Need A Plumber Canada can send one of our HVAC technicians out to check if there are any issues and restart your furnace. We'd be happy to perform a furnace cleaning at your convenience, so don't hesitate to call our 24-hour service today!
