Did you know - Your furnace is like your car?
You wouldn’t drive your car 150,000 km’s without changing the oil! In fact, Great Canadian Oil Change claims "It's our duty to your car." The same is true for your furnace. Regular HVAC servicing is the best way to maintain trouble-free operation and peak performance. Servicing before your furnace has a problem will help avoid a system failure in severe cold when you need it the most! It can also keep your energy bill from getting out of control.
