In most places around the world, a broken furnace is frustrating, but it’s not something to get too worked up about. That isn’t true for Calgarians. The Canadian winter is a force to be reckoned with, and some research has shown that over 4% of deaths in Canada can be attributed to the cold. It’s important to protect yourself and your family, and that means remembering to schedule your annual furnace inspection.
When Should You Have Your Furnace Inspected?
On average, Calgary begins experiencing cooler temperatures around October. However, in recent years we’ve had snow as early as September. Because a furnace failure during the night can be deadly once temperatures dip below 5 °C (the average low in September is 4 °C), we recommend Calgarians schedule their inspection between late September and early November. Of course, booking your inspection a little earlier is also fine.
Get the Most from Your Warranty!
It’s not just the experts at Plumbing Paramedics that suggest Calgarians get an annual inspection. In order to get the most out of your furnace and its warranty, most manufacturers recommend or mandate annual inspections if you want to make a claim. This makes sense. They don’t want to pay to replace a furnace that would still be working if the owner had had an inspection.
Prevention is Best.
Whether it’s a furnace inspection, replacing an old hot water tank, or checking on a dripping tap, we firmly believe in prevention and being proactive. We’re privileged to work with so many great Calgary families and landlords who take their responsibilities seriously. Keeping your kids and tenants warm through the winter means making sure your furnace is ready to handle those chilling -40 °C January nights. Call the experts at Plumbing Paramedics for an inspection, so when you come home from your long commute or a great day of hitting the slopes, your house is waiting comfy-warm.
