Scenario one: Your air conditioning breaks down on the hottest day of the year. You and your family hunt for fans in the basement. No fans, so you run to the nearest hardware store. No fans, all sold out because of the heat wave. Your entire family overheats and a fight ensues. No one sleeps.

Scenario two: your furnace stops working on a Friday night when it’s -22 degrees out. You go on a desperate hunt to find as many space heaters as you can to stave off frozen pipes while figuring out how to get a furnace repair guy in the next day.  You open the oven door and everyone huddles around it in their parkas for warmth. The entire family goes to bed at 8. Fun times.

The reality is, regular maintenance of ducts, AC systems and heating units will help you avoid the scenarios described above, and will help you maintain good quality air in your home. When looking to purchase or maintain a heating or cooling system, or if you require any duct work, start with the list of our 2016 HomeStars Best Of Award winners in the HVAC category in Alberta found below.
