Furnace Services

Regular Furnace Services are important for several reasons.  The Furnace Service procedure is important to ensure that all the appropriate areas and operations of the furnace are checked and diagnosed.  Obviously, a complete furnace service has safety implications as well as extending the life of the furnace and bringing down your overall costs during the life of the furnace.  So REGULAR furnace service is the key.  You should have your furnace serviced at least once a year.  That’s the Fortis B.C. recommendation.  But change your filters every six months at a very minimum.
