Winter Furnace Maintenance Kelowna

Tip #1 - Turn on your Furnace prior to Winter negative tempatures

It it smart to fire up your Furnace at least three times prior to the negative tempatures hit, this gives peace of mind that your equipment is working well for those cold days. Zoltera understands how frustating it can be when the unit just stops working on a cold December night.

Be ahead of the curve, get your system up and running before it quits! If you are hesitant starting it up on your own, Zoltera Mechanical would happily come out and get it running.

Tip #2 - Change Filters

One of the major causes for Furnace breakdowns is dust and debris build up. Check your Furnace filters every month to make sure they are free from any contaminants. Keeping backup filters is always a smart move.

Zoltera provides multiple filter options if you are looking to step up your efficiency on your unit.
