It’s a question we’re asked often. When should inspections and service of any type of heating or cooling equipment be done? The answer is easy: at least once a year.
That applies to every part of your HVAC system, because it combines heating and air conditioning as well as ventilation. Oil-fired heating systems especially need to be checked over and have any service needs looked after, particularly with our Okanagan cooler nights upon us.
One thing you can do at any time before the winter (especially after our smoky Okanagan summer!) is check the air filter in your furnace. It is usually visible in a slot approximately 60 cm high right on the front. The filter is meant to be pulled out and inspected every 3 months. A dirty filter can impact air flow and of course, air purity. Replace it if it looks dark! Your GPH Mechanical professional can also replace this during his/her visit. Simply doing this quick task can have an incredible impact in the overall operation of your furnace’s heating element.
Qualified technicians are critical
And speaking of air ducts, when was the last time yours were cleaned? It’s through those metal tubes that snake through your walls and floors that heated or cooled air travels and makes indoor life comfortable. At G.P.H.
