Can you believe that it’s already almost 2021? For better or for worse, the year really flew by and it’s time to get our ducks in a row. Homeowners who have been hesitant about investing in heater repair should now look to the future on how things need to be done in 2021, instead of looking at the past year.

Heating repair needs to be something you factor into your budget going forward, especially if your system is getting old. We advise you to follow our guide on things to consider when it comes to heater repair in Calgary, AB. Let’s talk about how much it could cost, what it means to choose the right team for the job, and when you should start considering replacement.

Don’t worry, things might be better next year—and we can start adjusting our lives to make improvements now!

The Regularity of Repairs

Look, we don’t want you getting accustomed to needing repairs often. If your heater requires repairs several times a year, or even once a year, then there’s seriously something wrong. Heaters should run into problems every couple of years, and even then they should be affordable. We want to solidify in your mind the idea that heaters should be reliable, especially gas furnaces and heat pumps.

If your heater hasn’t been repaired for a few years, then we’d like to let you in on some advice. It probably will need help down the line, and you’re going to be asked to pay a bill. Whether it’s this year or next, you’re going to have to be ready. So, plan for a repair in your near future that isn’t a surprise, if you haven’t already needed it.

Think About Replacement

How old is your system? When was the last time it was fixed? In the case of a heat pump, what kinds of refrigerant does it run on? These are the questions you should be asking yourself if you haven’t had to confront the need for heater repair in a while. Systems age and get faulty with each passing year. Technology gets outdated and your comfort could begin to suffer.

Start thinking about the next steps, upgrades, or the technology that can keep you comfortable and safe. Is your heat pump nearing the end of its lifespan? Is your furnace starting to boom in the middle of the night? Then let’s talk about getting you set up with a system that could last for the next ten to fifteen years.

Choose the Right Team

If you’ve been working with the same contractor year after year, it might feel comfortable enough to avoid looking for other help. However, if that contractor has forced you to pay too many fees, has been busy during the hours you need them, or has only addressed certain issues and not others—then perhaps it’s time for a change.

2021 can be the year that you decide to go with us! With our team, we use tried and tested solutions that are bound to give you clear improvements in the quality of your comfort.
