HVAC companies stress the importance of annual service inspections of your units. Whether it’s your furnace, AC, or hot water heater, these systems need to be maintenanced in order to run properly and efficiently. Not only that, but annual inspections also keep you and your home safe, eliminating any risk of gas leakages. Plus, regular inspections minimize the need for emergency repairs by catching a problem early. Read on to hear about two homeowners from Vancouver who have their furnaces maintained on an annual basis.
Furnace Maintenance for $125 in Surrey
Kevin had their furnace maintenance performed by Best Way Heating. Kevin knows that his furnace is an older model, so they try their best to keep up with inspections as they are aware of the risks associated. The service technician completed a cleaning as well as a carbon monoxide gas check to ensure there were no leaks.
After the inspection, Kevin was expecting to be told that they should install a new unit as theirs is an older model and runs a higher risk of breaking down. Instead, Kevin didn’t hear anything about an upsell, and the technician offered an explanation of what could go wrong in the future and what Kevin should expect with their existing unit.
It’s common for HVAC professionals to offer to install new units as an option when older models begin to break down. In some cases, a new unit should be installed as the older unit runs a high risk and becomes a safety hazard. However, Kevin appreciated the honesty from the technician letting them know that the unit will still run fine, but to keep an eye out for potential risks in the future.
As an added bonus, just a month later, Kevin noticed an odd noise coming from their vents. Right away they reached out to Best Way Heating who was more than happy to diagnose. They let Kevin know what he can do to resolve the problem over the phone, saving Kevin money on a service visit.

Similar to Kevin, Arlene found themself in the same situation. Their furnace was quite old at 30 years, but they have maintained their annual cleaning and inspections to keep it running efficiently.
This time around they contacted Best Way Heating for the job. Arlene was happy when the service technician arrived on time for the appointment, also equipped with PPE to follow COVID-19 guidelines. The service tech was friendly and knowledgeable, guiding Arlene through the cleaning and inspection, which was very much appreciated. The technician was done in a reasonable time, limiting the amount of time spent in Arlene’s house. At the end of the appointment, again, there was no upselling, but rather the technician notified Arlene of a possible rebate they could apply for in the future. After their first experience with Best Way Heating, Arlene is sure to contact them again for any emergency repairs, inspections, or cleanings in the future.
