When was the last time you had your furnace and A/C system checked out? Let’s think for a minute about the value and trust you have invested in this equipment!
Our team has been installing and repairing HVAC systems in Summerland for years. And every summer and fall, we receive calls from panicked homeowners and businesses asking for emergency HVAC repairs.
Let’s talk about some steps to improve the length of life, quality of operations, and energy efficiency maximization of your HVAC system. This way, you can protect yourself against emergency breakdowns and the costs associated with rush repair bills.

An Ounce of Prevention…

Here are 5 steps to preventing HVAC troubles before they arrive:

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.


How Long Can an HVAC System Last?

If you start with a best-practices’ maintenance plan and trusted repair professionals, your HVAC system can last 14 – 20 years. If you bought a property and aren’t aware of your equipment’s maintenance history, this could be shortened.
