It’s time to get your home heating system ready for winter!

Servicing your system today can save you time and money tomorrow

While we’re still enjoying sunny summer days and warm evenings here in Central Alberta, fall is just around the corner. And that means it’s time to start thinking about how comfortable your home will be – for your family AND your wallet.

Why? Not only will you beat the rush when everyone else starts thinking about home heating, but preventive care goes a long way to ensuring your system works as well – and as efficiently – as it can for years to come.

“Absolutely, you want to get your heating system serviced before the cold weather hits,” says Doug Madu, from Rimbey’s Aspenworks Mechanical, which offers residential and business plumbing, boilers and gasfitting services. “It’s like changing the oil in your car – it’s something you often don’t think about, but if you don’t do it, your car stops running.”

Stay cosy … and save

Just how often should you have your home heating and cooling system serviced? Doug recommends servicing every two years, not only to keep it clean and running efficiently, but also to watch for worn elements that might cause bigger challenges once cold weather hits.

That well-serviced system will make your home more enjoyable throughout the most difficult winter weather. “It definitely makes your home a whole lot more comfortable,” Doug says, noting that while Aspenworks Mechanical is there to help in an emergency, most homeowners would prefer NOT to have to make that middle-of-the-storm call!

And just like preventive maintenance keeps your car on the road longer, servicing your home’s mechanical systems saves money on their operation – the equipment doesn’t have to work as hard to get the job done – and will serve your family much longer, saving you money in the long run.

Save on efficient new installations

While regular maintenance will offer greater efficiency and longevity, when the time comes to install a new system, it pays to choose an installer who can provide quality equipment and installation, in line with current rebates.

“If you move from a mid-efficiency to a high-efficiency unit, you can qualify for rebates,” Doug notes.

And even more good news for homeowners: Aspenworks Mechanical recently partnered with Easyhome Financing, so if you need work done on your home, such as upgrades, repairs or remodelling, you can apply for financing OAC and Aspenworks can be your local contractor!
