An Ounce of Prevention…
Step 1 Have your HVAC system maintained regularly (twice a year – in fall and spring is ideal but start the habit at any time of year and adjust in the future!)
Step 2 Replace your air filters according to manufacturer instructions (up to 4x a year)
Step 3 Have your current system evaluated for its energy efficiency over its remaining lifespan.
Step 4 Ask about rebates and incentives — Canada is currently promoting heat pump installations and there is significant money available for an energy efficient switch of equipment. You might find what you could save with a more energy-efficient system and BC rebates would surprise you! We can provide an estimate.
Step 5 Report anything strange to your maintenance professional at GPH. This might include a jump in your utility bill, equipment noises, and frequent repairs.
