Should you Perform Furnace Maintenance in the Summer?

A properly functioning furnace in your home is essential – especially here in Vancouver!

Have you ever experienced that “uh-oh” feeling when you try to turn on your furnace on a cold day in the winter – and nothing happens? We understand the importance of maintaining a warm home during the cold fall and winter months.

Now, why are we discussing furnace maintenance in July?

Furnace MaintenanceWith all of the beautiful weather Vancouver has been experiencing, scheduling an appointment to service your furnace is probably the last thing on your mind. You are probably thinking about your upcoming summer vacation, hosting a backyard barbecue with friends, and hiking your favourite trail.

Contrary to popular belief, the summer months are actually the perfect time to have your furnace inspected, serviced, and cleaned. Why? Chances are, your furnace is turned off during summer months as the Lower Mainland basks in the sun.

Going without an active furnace for a few days in the summer won’t affect you and your family much at all. In comparison, going without an active furnace for a few days in the winter would be extremely uncomfortable.
