Don’t Wait To Replace Your Furnace in Calgary

In the third part of Scouting for Boys, Robert Baden-Powell explains the meaning of the Scout Motto: Be Prepared, which means you are always in a state of readiness in mind and body to do your duty. With the winter of 2016 having been so warm, is your furnace “prepared” for when the cold weather returns.

On February 9, 2016 CBC News reported that “Calgary broke a 90-year-old temperature record for the day.” According to Environment Canada’s Kirk Torneby, temperatures hit 15C, edging above the 1926 record high of 14.4 for Feb. 9. The cause can be attributed to El Nino, a chinook wind, and a nearby large ridge of high pressure that is allowing warm, moist Pacific air to blow into B.C. and continue through to Alberta, said Weather Network meteorologist Dayna Vettese.

Winter is expected to return, hard and fast in full Calgary fashion, and when Calgary’s projected 1.2M residents crank up their furnaces all at once – break-downs happen. To avoid ‘the rush’ get your furnace serviced now. When it comes to quality furnace repair, Calgary turns to Just in Time Furnace Inc.

The top culprit for furnace problems is dirt. Calgary’s warm winter means unexpected dirt tracked into your home. Dirty furnaces waste fuel, reduce efficiency, and it may overheat, leading to mechanical failures. The areas that generally need the most attention include filters, the motor, and blower.

Many people don’t realize how important a good air filter for your furnace is or how problematic a dirty one is. Your filter accumulates dirt over a period of use (a warm winter, for instance) and if it isn’t replaced often, dirt can enter other parts of the furnace and cause further problems. The motor and blower also need regular maintenance and cleaning to stay functional.

Dirt isn’t the only culprit in a faulty furnace, other elements that may cause furnace repairs in Calgary include:

  • Faulty pilot light;
  • Clogged gas valves or burner issues;
  • Problems with the thermocouple or limit switch;
  • Electrical problems;
  • Problems with the thermostat;
  • Gas leaks ( Leave the Premises Immediately if you smell gas, and call your gas supplier and/or fire department).
