Most people forget that winter lasts until March in Toronto and the GTA. So no matter how mild of a winter you’ve had, there’s always time for the cold to roll in and change everything. When the mercury dips below zero, your boiler or furnace keep you warm, but what if they didn’t? It’s good to know who to call when things go wrong. Emergency HVAC services make all the difference.
There When You Need Us
Whether it’s the middle of the night or the beginning of the work day, Novel Care is there to help with emergency HVAC services. Our experts understand that furnaces and boilers rarely break down at a convenient time, so we’re ready to answer the call when you need heat. We’ll work with you to assess the situation and dispatch a professional to address any issues, no matter how late into the night you call.
Older Homes Are At Greater Risk In The Winter
Toronto and the GTA has no shortage of new condos being built, but it also has plenty of homes available too. While the newer ones might be built with energy efficiency in mind, older homes weren’t. Consider how much energy it takes to heat a home with an unfinished basement or poorly insulated attic. These homes aren’t held to the same standard, and that can cost you in two ways.
The first is that it can increase your energy bill. With your home not being able to properly store the heat, your furnace or boiler work a bit harder on those cold winter days. This brings us to our second expense; the need for repairs when things break down. Even if your furnace isn’t very old, freezing temperatures outside means you need more heat insider. Combined with a poorly insulated home, your furnace or boiler could be working overtime to keep you warm. That’s when things break. And that can leave you stranded at home in the middle of a cold winter night.
Take Better Care Of Your Furnace Or Boiler
- Schedule a professional for maintenance
- Keep an eye on that thermostat
Most homeowners are not professionals when it comes to boiler or furnace maintenance, and that’s okay! It is recommended you have a professional take a look once in a while though to see how your home is doing. The right professional can identify things before they break down and even make suggestions to catch problems before they happen.
The other simple and cost-effective way to save your furnace or boiler from the harsh winter months is to manage your thermostat. Turning it up a couple of degrees can save you from overdoing it when it’s cold out. Also, it never hurts to try your best to keep any vulnerable pipes properly insulated either to avoid frozen pipes. Additionally, you can ward off frozen pipes by keeping a small stream of water running on those especially frigid days, but that’s not very cost-effective.
