Why appliance maintenance is important


Having your natural gas appliances serviced by a Technical Safety BC licensed natural gas contractor has numerous benefits. These include: 

  • Safety—a gas contractor will inspect the area around your appliances to help ensure there is proper ventilation and no combustibles are nearby.

  • Efficiency—regular maintenance helps ensure your system operates at optimal energy-efficiency standards.

  • Longevity—a gas contractor can identify any worn parts and replace them before they fail, which helps sustain your equipment’s safe functioning and lifespan.

  • Air quality—a gas contractor can check your furnace filter, show you how to replace it and recommend how often.

  • Warranty—most manufacturers require regular servicing to ensure your warranty remains valid.
