Most people may not be familiar with how their furnace operates, which is why we at Okanagan Heating and Air Conditioning Ltd recommend that Kelowna and surrounding area homeowners should call us in on an annual basis, for the following very important reasons:
Pretty much everyone agrees that you need to maintain your automobile, but when it comes to the mechanical components in your home, they often don't realize that the same principles apply- maintenance on a regular basis will help prolong the life of the equipment and avoid costly breakdowns during peak usage, not to mention possible fire hazards.
Being mindful of your system's maintenance is important to you and your serviceman. Determining the difference between maintenance and service is relatively simple and saves you time and money! Maintenance is virtually an “oil change” for your home heating and cooling equipment. This keeps everything operating at prime levels. This is a simple annual tune-up and cleaning of your equipment. So if everything is in working order and just needs a fine tuning, MAINTENANCE is where it's at.
Service/Diagnostic involves repair when a unit is not working properly, not working at all, or is experiencing anything out of the normal daily functions.
Sometimes it's the things we least expect. A few simple steps can help your wallet!
