What is Furnace Maintenance and Why Is It Necessary?
Furnace maintenance is the process of maintaining or preserving the integrity of your furnace. From something as simple as checking your filters to more complicated procedures such as motor inspection. At Legacy Heating and Cooling, our technicians are trained to inspect all aspects of your furnace to make sure it is always running at its best and catch issues before they become an expensive problem. A furnace is a serious investment, like your car, and should be serviced as such. We recommend booking an annual inspection once a year in the fall months. We recommend fall because your unit has been dormant for months and you'll be relying on it heavily in the upcoming months. It's important to know before it's too late, that it's up to the task.

Annual inspections are important because, in Edmonton, Alberta, we are heavily reliant on our furnaces for a large part of the year. If a problem arises in the winter months and you're not prepared, there is an endless list of complications this could bring into your life including complications to your health. At Legacy Heating and Cooling, our trained technicians follow a detailed list to make sure EVERYTHING is checked so that you don't have to worry.

At the end of the inspection, your technician will review all of the data they have collected with you and inform you about any repairs you may need to do. Sometimes these recommendations may seem like frivolous expenses, but keeping up on them will prevent bigger expenses down the road. It is important that all recommended repairs are done by a certified HVAC specialist. Not just for safety purposes but you also risk voiding the warranty on your furnace.
