New Furnace Calgary

With shorter days and cooler temperatures getting closer each week, it’s time to look towards the winter weather that lays ahead so that you can be prepared. With the inevitable icy temperatures that our Calgary winters bring us, we must rely heavily on our furnaces to keep us cozy and warm. With all the extra usage, your utility bills can increase by a lot in no time. That being said, with some preventative maintenance, you can ensure that your heating system is primed and ready to take on the weather as efficiently as possible to keep you toasty without the costly burden.

Here are five advantages of furnace maintenance that make it clear why it is worth the investment.


Lower Your Energy Bills

Your furnace is similar to your car. It requires regular maintenance to get the most out of it and to keep costs as low as possible by preventing any major issues from occurring. By having your furnace regularly maintained, especially before the winter season, you’re helping to improve the efficiency of it. This equates to less energy required to keep your home warm.

DISTINCT’s qualified technicians will complete a 30point inspection covering everything from checking your furnace’s safety control and limits, ignition system, gas operation, CO testing, heat exchanger, burner tubes, temperature rise, filter condition and, if necessary, perform any necessary repairs that will keep your furnace humming smoothly without guzzling up so much energy.


Extend the Lifespan

Just like with any other equipment, taking care of your furnace will allow it to function properly for much longer. Regular furnace maintenance will identify any lingering issues and repair them to avoid any damage that can contribute to major problems.


Less Hassle and Repairs

By having your furnace serviced regularly, it can help monitor any discrepancies with it that can be dealt with before they lead to larger, more expensive repairs. That means less hassle and aggravation for you.


Keep it Functioning Safely

Safety is also an important by-product of performing regular maintenance. Qualified technicians will check the furnace, monitor and change the filter when necessary, remove debris that can accumulate around the unit, and ensure that there’s no risk of carbon monoxide entering your home.


Improved Capacity for Performance

When you take proper care of your furnace, it will improve the performance, along with the capacity to work better at maintaining a comfortable temperature throughout your home during the winter.

Your HVAC’s duct system is the heart of your home’s heating and cooling system. It provides a controlled airflow throughout your home. How well your duct system works can spell a huge difference in costs and in how effective your furnaces are at keeping your home cozy and comfortable. A poorly-designed duct system will not only cause your energy bills to spike, but may also pose hazard to you and your family’s health as it distributes polluted air indoors.

The duct system can be made out of sheet, fiber glass duct board, insulated plastic or cloth. But a well-designed duct system has the following characteristics:

  • Conditioned air is delivered properly throughout your home at maximum efficiency and capacity. Your HVAC system’s volume-carrying capacity of the return air must equal that of the supply air. If it is not, a pressure imbalance will created and this will cause discomfort as well as energy wastage.img-1
  • It doesn’t make so much noise that it becomes bothersome. Pressure imbalance may cause excessive system pressure, causing the worrisome noises. Adjustments have to be made in furnaces fan size, duct size and duct mountings.
  • The duct system is well-supported, thus avoiding dislocation or damage, and ensuring that the system’s efficiency remains top-notch.
  • Is easy to maintain with adequate clearances provided on all sides of the equipment to allow easy access for periodic maintenance. Maintenance work should be done routinely as well to ensure maximum system efficiency.
