A lot of homeowners in the Ottawa area do not realize that annual furnace maintenance is a requirement to maintain most manufacturer’s furnace part warranties. At AirZone, we ensure that your annual maintenance is documented to meet the manufacturer specifications. We offer annual furnace maintenance for all brands of furnace products.

When you choose AirZone for your furnace maintenance service, your are choosing a family business who is dedicated to the highest level of customer service AND furnace expertise.

Furnace maintenance is extremely important not only for warranty purposes. The furnace is the heart of your heating and cooling system. Annual furnace maintenance helps to avoid costly repairs down the road and ensures that your heater is working correctly and at it’s best. By optimizing your furnace through annual maintenance, you are ensuring that the furnace is working correctly and is tuned to provide the greatest efficiency while operating. This often leads to lower utility bills especially with older furnace products. There is also a safety aspect to furnace maintenance. Our technicians are trained to spot safety issues such as cracks in the heat exchanger that can result in dangerous gasses within your home. If we do find a safety issue with your furnace system, we will recommend either replacement parts or a new furnace installation depending on how old the product is and how much repairs cost. By diagnosing safety issues on site, you can avoid a furnace breakdown during the winter months and take advantage of promotions and savings during slower months. Emergency furnace service can be expensive and you can often avoid these fees by having a simple maintenance completed on your heater.
A common misconception a lot of people have in Ottawa is that an AC warranty will cover you in full for 10 years. A lot of manufacturers offer a parts warranty for this amount of time which is the main reason this expectation exists. The truth is that only some customers will be covered in full for this timeframe. There are three main criteria that they have to meet. First, did they register the equipment with the manufacturer when it is sold (AirZone helps you with this). Second, is the warranty a parts only warranty or did the customer purchase the additional labour warranty? A manufacturer does not warranty labour by default. This is either sold as an insurance add on or included by the dealer (at an increased cost). Third, has the customer completed an air conditioner maintenance by a qualified dealer each year with no breaks. We unfortunately see a lot of people missing out on warranties because they have not completed their annual AC maintenance or missed a year or two. At AirZone, we have put programs in place that prevent you from missing your annual maintenance and instead help you save money through our membership packages. If your air conditioner is in need of annual maintenance contact us today!
When you have your furnace maintained on a yearly basis by AirZone HVAC Services you will ensure that you are getting the most out of your heating system. Annual maintenance is the first line of defence against a furnace breaking down. It’s an opportunity to see what is going on behind the scenes and making sure that your system is running at it’s best efficiency. We commonly find issues such as a clogged filter that will reduce the lifespan of your heating equipment.
By performing an annual furnace maintenance you will get the longest life and avoid an early replacement saving you money in the long run! We offer an easy annual furnace maintenance program through our protection packages. For a low monthly fee you will receive an annual heater maintenance along with many other benefits such as priority service and discounts on new products and services. If you would prefer to book your maintenance each year yourself we also offer an easy option to do so. We would encourage you to book early as our annual furnace maintenance slots fill up quickly in the late fall. Regardless of which option you choose we would encourage you to perform proper maintenance on your heating equipment to enjoy years of proper furnace operation and an extended equipment lifespan.
