FURNACE ANNUAL MAINTENANCE

“We live in Winnipeg. Is it really necessary to have my furnace tuned up every year?”

All furnace manufacturers recommend annual service and go further to say that “equipment damage due to improper maintenance is not covered under warranty”. Most contractors will side with a homeowner to get parts warranty from the manufacturer even though the furnace may have been neglected. At some point this can prove to be awkward for contractors that have a poor track record with their local parts suppliers or manufacturers.

At Tradesman, we would like you to think of it as going to the dentist every six months or a year for a cleaning and check-up; probably not always necessary, but definitely recommended.

While older furnaces need to be checked regularly for heat exchanger integrity, newer high efficient furnaces have more components that require adjustment and testing for wear that could lead to premature system failure. Annual service can and will prevent costly and untimely repairs.

Ask us about our Annual Maintenance programs that offer you savings on repairs and operating costs.

Tradesman Mechanical can save you money with a Furnace tune-up for your Winnipeg home.
