Ottawa Furnace Maintenance, Cleaning, and Inspection; is it worth or even necessary?
The answer might surprise you.
Ottawa Furnace Maintenance; Google is jam packed with Ottawa HVAC Companies, who will tell you how important it is for you to have your furnace tuned up, annually; proclaiming that by having your furnace cleaned, you will: extend the life of your furnace, have fewer breakdowns, improve system reliability, lower utility bills. This all delivers that peace of mind, that we all want during those cold winter nights...but is all of that really true?
To answer that question as an HVAC Tech and a Co-Owner of FreshAirDuctCleaning.ca, (which provides furnace maintenance and duct cleaning services to the Ottawa West, East, and South) is like going into a lion's den. This is like solving a Rubik's cube, a mystery in a box, or a Russian doll puzzle.
Why? Because there are a lot of opinions and secrets on the topic of furnace maintenance and furnace inspection, in the Ottawa area. A LOT...A lot of Ottawa heating and cooling technicians and companies, if asked will give you a resounding “YES!” At the same time, they can and do contradict themselves by telling you that you need to replace your equipment, as your furnace has been breaking down too many times, and is now going to cost you a lot of money.
“But wait, I thought that a furnace maintenance would prolong the life of my furnace? Isn't that what every HVAC company is claiming?”
So what's with all of the breakdowns? What's the truth?
