New Furnace & Sailboat Link—Here is the Unlikely Similarity

Get Affordable Furnace Tune-ups. With Guaranteed Results Now

Hi, Jack Devetten, the Professor of Plumbing here with Ace Plumbing and Heating in Calgary. The Sailboat and a furnace have more in common than you think. But first, did you know in my free time, I am the captain of this ship? I love to spend time out on the open waters of a calm lake on a nice summer day. With a cool breeze at my back. All is well on my well-maintained boat. Clearly, to stay afloat, instruments and all components on this vessel must be in tip-top shape. Because the alternative usually does not end well.

But the same line of thinking also goes for the invisible hero in the basement of your home. Your furnace is the most neglected appliance next to the hot water heater  you rely on in the winter. Especially when it is -42 plus a light wind. 

Furthermore, as a plumbing and heating contractor, I have seen the role a furnace has when it comes to the safety and comfort in a home. While homeowners often prioritize the visible plumbing fixtures, the hidden furnace runs tirelessly behind the scenes. So, what happens when this hero starts faltering? Actually, the answer lies in regular furnace tune-ups.

Let’s take a tour of your furnace and drill down into the many benefits of this essential service.

Think of your furnace as a car. Like a well-maintained car that runs smoothly and efficiently. A tuned-up furnace operates at peak efficiency. Ace Plumbing and Heating expert technicians ensure the furnace distributes heat evenly and responds promptly to thermostat changes. The result? A warm home, cozy and free from cold spots.

Increased Efficiency and Performance:

Extends the Lifespan of the Furnace:

A furnace is a significant investment for any homeowner. Naturally, you would want it to last as long as possible. The lifespan of a furnace averages out at 8 to 12 years. By addressing minor issues before they escalate, will keep all components are in top condition. Consequently extending the life of the furnace by several years. At any rate, a tune-up once a year prevents the need for a costly replacement.

Reduction in Energy Bills:

An inefficient furnace does not just compromise comfort, it burns a hole in your pocket. A furnace struggles due to clogged filters, wear and tear, and failing components. Consequently consumes more energy to produce the right amount of heat. On the other hand, a furnace tune-up will restore its efficiency and save money. Providing tangible energy savings over time. These savings can offset the cost of the tune-up itself.

Protecting the Environment:

Keeping up with regular maintenance keeps the furnace out of the landfill and reduce your carbon footprint. Obviously a win, win, for everyone.

Ensuring Safety and Preventing Carbon Monoxide Leaks:

Completely built with safety in mind. The furnace is not immune to failure. One of the deadliest risks associated with a malfunctioning furnace is carbon monoxide. A colourless, odourless gas that can have fatal consequences. Ace Plumbing and Heating technicians inspect the furnace for signs of leaks or potential hazards. Ensuring your home remains safe.
