5 Reasons Why You Need An Annual Furnace Check-Up


The cold weather has come back to Winnipeg, and now’s the time to think about your furnace’s annual inspection. An annual “tune-up” allows your furnace repair technician to check for issues before they become bigger problems or emergencies.

Many homeowners know furnace checkups are recommended, but few have them as often as they should. Properly maintained furnaces not only save on costs but can also save lives.

Here are 5 reasons why you should schedule your annual furnace check ups today.

1. Improves Efficiency & Saves Money

As your furnace pulls air through its filter, over time it gets clogged with particles. A clogged filter means your furnace has to work harder to pull air through it, which uses more power and raises your energy bill.

For us Winnipeggers who use our furnaces a lot, furnace filters can clog faster than normal and require filter changes more often. Regular checkups always include a filter replacement, helping your furnace to run smooth and efficiently.

2. Extends The lifespan Of Your Furnace

Here’s a scenario no one wants – You’re sound asleep and suddenly your furnace shuts down.. in the middle of the night… in the middle of winter. Regular checkups reduce the chance of your furnace shutting down when you least expect it.

While there are no guarantees in life, a furnace repair technician will catch warning signs before they become bigger problems later on. If left unchecked, small signs of wear can leave you with major furnace repairs or even needing a full placement. A routinely checked and maintained furnace can add many years of life to your furnace.

3. Keep Your family safe

We all know the dangers of the odorless and colorless gas called Carbon Monoxide (C02). Furnaces are designed to release CO2 as part of normal operations through the exhaust. Even small cracks in your furnace can lead to dangerous leaks of carbon monoxide gas being pumped throughout your home.

The safety of you and your family is one of the most important reasons why annual furnace checks are so important. A trained and licensed technician will help to catch potential safety risks, giving you the peace of mind to know your furnace is up to code and working properly.

4. Maintain manufacturers warranty

If your furnace is under warranty, you’ll want to have it serviced frequently. Why? Manufacturers often state that warranties may be voided if your furnace is not properly maintained.

When you put in a claim, your manufacturer will ask for proof that you’ve maintained it to a satisfactory level. A record from your annual checkups is the proof you’ll need for your claim to be approved.

Investing in annual maintenance is your best chance to avoid surprise warranty claim rejections and costly furnace replacements.

5. Ensure proper Airflow & Temperature Regulation

Having your furnace checked annually ensures proper flow of air through your home. Problems with your furnace may cause strain on your furnace and lead to restricted airflow. Not only does restricted airflow lead to a shorter life span for your furnace, but also makes it more difficult to regulate the temperature of your home.

Regular checks will ensure your home is heated evenly and consistently. Your furnace repair technician will calibrate your thermostat to make sure you’re able to heat your home exactly the way you like.

When Should I Schedule My Furnace Inspection?

If you haven’t had your furnace inspected in over a year, then you should book it in now, regardless of what time of year it is.

However, the best time to get your furnace inspected is right before the cold weather sets in. Having your furnace inspected before you turn it on gives them a better chance of finding problems before they get worse.

Improving your furnace’s efficiency before turning it on also means reduced energy bills and peace of mind to know you and your family are safe and warm all winter long.

If you need a company for any plumbing needs please make sure to use Lynne‘s HVAC Winnipeg. Scott was out today to clean our sewer line and he was very professional & had everything back working for us again. It seems tree roots were the cause of our troubles. I would rate Scott and the company both five stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

From the moment I met Josh I knew I could trust this company. He was very patient and explained everything easily. The team came on time. They worked so hard to get my new AC on my old furnace. It was a challenging job but they stayed positive and never discouraged me. I was so confident they will do a great job and they did not disappoint. They cleaned up everything and it looked perfect. I am now enjoying my cool home. Thank you so much and I feel like I found a family. ❤️

After a really bad experience with a competitor I turned to Lynn’s. Scott was early, clean and professional. He took of his shoes, prepared the area where we has going to work and made sure my carpet didnt get any more dirty then it was (competitor had soiled it). The jobs was tougher than initially thought, but Scott kept working at it and didn’t give up and finally found a solution. I felt the costs was proportionate and I would highly recommend Lynn’s Plumbing and Scott in particular. Give others a pass!

Sucks to be without AC when it is 30 degrees out! Luckily Lynn’s helped us repair our air conditioner unit within hours of it breaking down.
