Furnace Maintenance Services For Ottawa & the Surrounding Area

What Makes Us Unique

We have been committed to providing world-class service since we first opened our doors in 1933. This is reflected in our 4.9-star average on Google, and in that the Better Business Bureau® has awarded us an A+ rating.

We have been serving the families in the Ottawa area for over eighty-five years, and to this day we continue to strive to provide our customers with high-quality services and products.

Our technicians follow a comprehensive maintenance checklist to ensure that nothing is missed. During our visit, we will ensure that the combustion chamber and heat exchanger are both operational and functioning normally, check your pilot safety timer or flame sensor, and replace your thermocouple if it becomes too worn. We will also check the motor, thermostat, and safety controls to ensure that they are clean and properly adjusted.

To help keep you and your family safe every furnace maintenance visit includes a comprehensive safety check. Our technicians will check your furnace and ensure that it is not producing carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is a deadly gas that has no taste, smell, or colour, making it nearly impossible to detect without a carbon monoxide detector or specialized testing equipment.

What Customers Say

“Sure he did maintenance on the furnace.

But when I mentioned I had extra furnace filters, he inspected the currently installed filter and replaced it.

Also, when I noticed my humidifier attached to the furnace was shut down due to us being away for a number of weeks, I turned on the water valve. The tech said I should not turn off this valve as it could deteriorate. Just set the control to 0% humidity effectively turning off the humidifier.”

- Ginette M.

“Adam Riera did the maintenance service call on my furnace and he was amazing. Took the time to answer all of my questions and was thorough in explaining everything. I highly recommend this technician and the company.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Both are an important part of keeping your furnace running well, but they serve different purposes. Furnace maintenance is a general tune-up to make sure your furnace is running optimally. Furnace repair is less general and is focused on a specific furnace issue.

To get the best performance out of your furnace, you should schedule a maintenance appointment once a year. An annual appointment for maintenance allows our experts to take a look at your furnace and make sure everything is running as it should. This helps your furnace run more reliably and efficiently.

Regardless of whether you have a higher-end or lower-end furnace model, you should always be scheduling furnace maintenance once a year. Higher-end furnaces can perform better without regular maintenance compared to lower-end units, but it’s important for every furnace.

A furnace that doesn’t receive regular maintenance is more susceptible to costly repairs and breakdowns. Like a routine physical makes sure that your body is healthy, routine furnace maintenance makes sure that your furnace unit is healthy. A healthy furnace is will run better and use less energy.
