How to Prepare Your Furnace for the Winter

Now that summer’s finally over, it’s time to get your furnace ready for the winter season. There are a few things that homeowners should do to prepare their furnace for the winter. 

The first thing you should do is change the air filter. Not only will a clean air filter be good for your family’s health, but it will also keep your furnace running smoothly and keep dust particles out of your HVAC system. Next, turn on the heat setting on your thermostat. Once the furnace is on, open every air vent in your home. Not only do blocked vents lead to higher energy bills, but they can also cause your furnace to overheat and eventually breakdown. Most importantly, ensure there is a working carbon monoxide detector on every floor of your home. 

Keeping your furnace well maintained will ensure that it runs smoothly and efficiently throughout the winter. Annual furnace maintenance checks should always be completed by a trained professional. Licensed technicians will thoroughly clean your furnace and check for the correct gas pressure and temperature rise. Additionally, they will also check for any cracks in the heat exchanges for carbon monoxide levels coming out of your furnace exhaust. Cracks can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, which can be dangerous and harmful to your family’s health. HVAC technicians can repair these cracks and ensure your family is comfortable and safe during the winter months. 

It is also advised to cover your central air conditioner during the winter months to protect it from the elements and to keep leaves and debris from accumulating inside the unit. We can provide you with a factory-fitted cover that is designed specifically for your air conditioner. For any help, please do not hesitate to contact a licensed professional at Twintech Heating & Cooling. 

At Twintech, we want to ensure you and your family stay warm this winter. If your furnace needs to be repaired or maintained, visit our website or give us a call at 1-844-894-6832.

Twintech replaced our aging furnace and air conditioner recently. I highly recommend this company. Their quote was competitive, they were on time and respectful of our home and extremely professional. From the salesman to the installers and the owner who followed up afterward to ensure we were satisfied, we are very pleased with the service. We are looking forward to working with this company for all of our HVAC needs for the years to come. Excellent workmanship and service!

We wanted to get our AC replaced as it was 22-years old and added to this our furnace was costing more and more to repair. So, we decided to get both the furnace and AC replaced.

After going through a few quotes and product reviews we decided to go with Twintech. The three-men crew arrived early in the morning, wasted no time and got to work right away. By 2:00 pm, they were all done. I’ve found their work to be top notch and they were completely professional. I had all my questions answered to my satisfaction both during the progress of their work and at end.

I have pleasure in recommending Twintech to anyone who is looking to get their furnace or Ac replaced

Our air conditioner died On a Saturday and within hours Dave came out to take a look and discuss replacement/repair options.
The new air conditioner was installed on the Wednesday. The new unit was installed quickly. The installers were friendly and cleaned up afterwards.
We noticed a slight leak around the furnace that night and they came out the next day and fixed the issue. It has been working great and is quieter than our previous unit.
Very satisfied and would highly recommend TwinTech.

I contacted TwinTech to replace my 20-year old A/C. Dave, their service rep, promptly replied and was at my home within 2 hours. He was friendly and knowledgeable and didn't try to upgrade or oversell their A/C units but suggested the best fit for my small 1000 feet bungalow. Although this was during a heatwave and very busy, they were able to fit me in 2 days later. The TwinTech crew installed a 1.5 ton Ducane A/C unit that is now running smoothly while maintaining a constant cooling temperature. The crew were very courteous, professional and efficient and I will definitely recommend TwinTech to family and friends. I much appreciated your great service.

Professional, courteous and efficient, don’t need to say more than that! Use them you will not regret it.

TwinTech was a pleasure to deal with from the estimate through installation. We replaced a 28 year old a/c unit with one recommended by TwinTech's sales representative Dave who took the time to go over the product with us and answer any questions. The warranty is for 10 years parts and labour and they will complete the registration for you. Installation was by Greg (owner) and Mitch and Spencer who were quick and efficient and left everything clean and tidy.

by Private User on Twintech Heating and Cooling

Very professional, from the sales consultation and inspection to the final installation. Met every expectations we had for the job. A local business with great client support. We highly recommend. Twintech is a blue chip! Thanks!

I left a live chat message on their website that my air conditioning was not working. Within 1hr a representative called me to discuss my options.
The next day he came to the house to review my needs and give me a price for a new system. Price quoted was less than I expected and the installation was completed the following day. I found their salesman and the installers very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. All my questions were answered. Everything was properly explained in regards to what unit was needed and why, along with instruction where needed for use.
The installers made sure everything was working properly before they left.
