We all know that Canadian winters can be incredibly cold. When the cold comes, you want your home to be protected, and comfortable for you and your family. This means preparing your home’s HVAC system for the cold weather is very important this fall. From Valkin Heating and Air Conditioning in Calgary, here are some ways they can help you prepare your home’s HVAC system for winter.
Furnace repairs or replacements
The main element of your home’s heating system is the furnace. Furnaces have a lifespan of about 15 to 20 years. Once you’re nearing the end, it may be time for a furnace replacement. Some ways to know when your furnace may need replacing are if it’s growing quite old, there’s weird sounds coming from the unit, your house is heated unevenly, or your energy bills are creeping up. Sometimes, however, your unit may need a simple repair. If it’s a newer unit, and the cost of repairing is less than half of replacing it, it’s best to take the repair route. Have Valkin Heating check on your furnace this fall. They can make provide an inspection, tune-up, and make recommendations moving forward.
Overtime, ducts are prone to have some build-up of dust and debris from your home’s air. When this happens, ducts push these dust particles around your home. These allergens are blown into your indoor air and can cause a problem for people with asthma and allergies. Plus, dirty ducts can cause the system to run inefficiently. It’s a good idea to have your ducts regularly cleaned in order to keep your air flow strong, and the air itself cleaner.
Hot water tank check-ups
Another way to keep your home ready for winter is to ensure your hot water tank is functioning properly. If you notice a leak, defective connections, aren’t getting hot water, your hot water tank may need assistance. Call an HVAC company, like Valkin Heating and Air Conditioning. Not only will they be able to let you know if you need a repair or replacement, but they’ll be able to get the job done for you.
