Regular maintenance of home HVAC systems has many benefits
Derek Jackson of Wardlaw Heating & Cooling explains why HVAC maintenance is so important
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are an essential part of life in Canada. Most people don’t think about the HVAC systems in their homes until they stop working on the hottest or coldest day of the year.
That’s where people like Derek Jackson, Sales and Marketing Manager for Wardlaw Heating & Cooling, step in. According to Derek, the best part of his job is helping people enjoy their home.
“We can help families and individuals stay safe and comfortable in their homes. We often get calls when people aren’t having a great day because their ovens are breaking down, their water tank is leaking, or their house is just way too hot. Our team can help solve these problems and turn their day around,” he says.
Preventive maintenance saves money and effort
Derek recommends scheduling annual preventative maintenance to avoid unpleasant breakdowns that seem to occur during the worst times of the year.
“We recommend running full systems in the spring or summer, including heating, cooling and water heating, so the entire system works safely and efficiently ahead of the heating season,” he says. “Having maintenance and safety inspections done during these seasons also allows time if repairs or replacements are needed before the cold weather hits.”
Additional benefits of preventive maintenance
In addition to preventing breakdowns in the middle of winter, preventive maintenance of a home ventilation system can help in a number of other ways:
- Ensuring that the system works efficiently can help reduce energy bills and CO2 emissions.
- Routine inspections and carbon monoxide output testing can ensure that the system is operating safely.
- Regular maintenance can help extend the life of the equipment.
Maintenance membership can help
The Wardlaw Heating & Cooling team realizes the importance of preventive maintenance to their customers’ ventilation systems, so they offer a unique maintenance membership program to make it more affordable. They offer maintenance plans for all types of heating, cooling and water heating equipment, including furnaces, fireplaces, water heaters, central and ductless heat pumps and air conditioners.
“With our maintenance plan, our customers receive an annual maintenance and safety inspection of their equipment, as well as priority service in the event of an emergency, such as no heating on a cold winter’s day,” says Derek. “Membership also includes parts and labor coverage for equipment repairs and exclusive pricing for work not included in the membership.”
