Winter’s chill is coming: Is your heating system ready?

Maintenance programs, government rebates offer great discounts

In the heart of Canada, we understand the importance of a warm, cozy home. Our reliance on technology, from hot water tanks to heating units, is often taken for granted. Yet, as the first frost approaches, many of us might be unknowingly setting ourselves up for a cold surprise.

Winter in Canada is unpredictable. One day it's a gentle snowfall, the next, a blizzard. Simply turning on your furnace without a recent check-up is akin to driving on icy roads without winter tires. Steve Filioglou of DNM Heating and Cooling cautions, "Winter doesn't wait, and neither should you. A reliable heating system isn't just about comfort; it's about safety."

His partner, both in business and life, Amanda Filioglou, emphasizes the importance of foresight. "It's not just about reacting to the cold, but preparing for it. Ensuring your family's warmth is a proactive step."

While many furnaces have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years, this can vary based on usage and maintenance. A furnace, like any machine, is made up of multiple components. Ignition systems, blowers, heat exchangers - any of these can falter, leading not only to a chilly home but also to higher energy bills.

However, there's a silver lining. By considering a Maintenance Membership with DNM Heating & Cooling, homeowners can be one step ahead. "It's more than just a service; it's peace of mind," Steve shares. Amanda adds, "Homeowners just like knowing that even in the harshest winter, your home remains a comfy haven where you’re not constantly fighting with the thermostat."

For those considering an upgrade, there's more good news. "Energy-efficient models or the addition of a heat pump can come with substantial rebates," Amanda points out. With programs like Enbridge Gas and Canada's Greener Homes Grant, Steve notes that "homeowners can receive up to $6,500 in rebates, making it an opportune time to think about system efficiency."

Winter is inevitable, but with preparation, it doesn't have to be daunting.
