Friday Funnies!

I have a little story,
about my friend named Cory*.

His furnace was running too hot,
But it was only hot in one spot,
So the clever young fellow,
Roasted some marshmallows,
Now he didn’t mind a whole lot.

The moral of the story,
Don’t be a Cory,
Call Ignite Heating,
We will give you a warm greeting,
We can service your furnace,
and hopefully earn us,
your love and affection,
with no objection.

Winter is coming, it’s time for a furnace inspection

Did you know that regular furnace maintenance is important to keep your furnace operating and avoid costly breakdowns? No matter how expensive the system is or what the manufacturer promises, a complicated piece of mechanical equipment is subject to breakdowns and needs repairs every so often. Much like you wouldn’t leave your car without maintenance for a year, you shouldn’t leave your HVAC system without maintenance.

The benefits of annual furnace maintenance include: lower energy bills, fewer repairs, lower chance of a surprise breakdown, longer equipment life and safer equipment operation.

Our furnace “clean and checks” provide an experienced technician the opportunity to review general maintenance of your furnace and humidifier, as well as, check your electrical, gas and combustion air and venting systems.

We leave a copy of our checklist outlining everything that was looked, and any preventative maintenance tips that we might have for the homeowner.

Give us a call @ 780.919.4916 today to book your annual furnace maintenance!

Choosing and HVAC contractor and Checking References

How should you begin the process of selecting a contractor?

For starters, ask your friends and associates for recommendations. Word of mouth is one of the most important forms of advertising for small businesses, we have been very thankful to build our business primarily through word of mouth referrals. Contractors are likely to work harder for you if they know that you have a connection to an existing network with whom they are associated.

Once you’ve begun interviewing contractors, we would suggest that you request and check multiple references. Here are some useful questions to ask references:

1) Can they confirm that they hired the contractor in question?

2) Were they happy with the contractor’s work?

3) Did the contractor finish the project on time and on budget?

4) Would they have any hesitation recommending this contractor to someone else?

Beware of references who are unwilling to discuss a contractor, or who give a lukewarm reference. People are understandably reluctant to give a blatantly bad reference about someone that they may work with again in the future.
