Maintenance is the key to ensuring your heating system lives a long life and works effortlessly to keep the environment comfortable. Most people assume investing in heating maintenance services wastes time, money, and energy. However, that’s not the case. Investing in regular maintenance services can save you from future stress and discomfort in the long run because HVAC specialists will detect and tackle issues before they become more prominent, costly problems. 


As one of the largest heating & air conditioning contractors in Central Alberta, you can trust Bruin’s Plumbing & Heating to keep your home warm and comfortable throughout the year!

It’s advisable to schedule heating system maintenance at the end of heating season to prevent breakdowns and avoid costly repairs. An unmaintained and dirty heating system is prone to overheating and excessive wear, leading to faster breakdowns.

By scheduling maintenance services, you can enjoy the following benefits:

  1. Improved air quality 
  2. Enhanced comfort the entire winter
  3. No sudden or expensive repairs 
  4. Increased lifespan 
  5. Requiring fewer emergency heating repair services in Red Deer, Lacombe, Sylvan Lake, AB, and surrounding areas
  6. Maintained utility bills

By properly maintaining your heating system, you may be able to extend the life of your unit past ten years. However, if your heating system has crossed the ten-year threshold without consistent tune-ups, you should call the furnace replacement expert in Red Deer, Lacombe, Sylvan Lake, AB, and surrounding areas, for a quick inspection. This is because an unmaintained system will experience premature wear and tear when not correctly cared for. You will be better off getting a new one than investing in costly repairs for your existing system. 

It is essential to schedule an annual inspection service for your furnace system to know when it is close to giving out and needs to be replaced. Here are some signs that indicate the replacement time is near: 

  1. Improper airflow and inadequate heat 
  2. The heating system requires more time than usual to heat. 
  3. You are constantly fidgeting with a thermostat to make indoors comfortable. 
  4. High electricity and upkeeping bills. 
  5. You are frequently calling the repair expert to fix the issues.
  6. Loud operational noises 

The signs listed above indicate you have a significant issue on your hands. In such cases, system replacement may be better than investing in expensive repairs that may not fully solve the problem.

Here is when you should replace instead of repair your system:

  • If the repair cost is half the installation cost, stick to replacement.
  • If the installed system is more than ten years old and requires frequent maintenance and repairs, a replacement will save you money in the long run.
  • If the system’s efficiency has degraded and caused electricity bills to rise, replacement is the smarter choice.
