Ensure your HVAC system is properly maintained in case the unexpected happens

Finances are a barrier to many who want to maintain or upgrade their HVAC system

While the pandemic has shown us many things, something that became abundantly clear is the importance of being prepared for when the unexpected happens. During lockdowns, this especially rang true in relation to making sure your home was safe and comfortable, and the importance of being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to your HVAC system.

Jennifer Dunsmoor, Community Relations for Oosterveld Heating & Air Conditioning in Guelph, said for almost two years, the majority of us have spent most of our time working and being at home, making us more conscientious of the efficiency of our HVAC system, or perhaps noticing sounds or other telltale signs it needed to be upgraded or replaced.

However, the pandemic has left many people with the loss of work, or reduced hours, and Dunsmoor said while having an efficient and properly functioning heating and cooling system is imperative, Oosterveld realizes that finances are a barrier for many people.

“There are a lot of people in our community that are in need of a new furnace or air conditioning, and if you’ve been putting it off because you’ve been nervous to spend the money as a lot of people have, now’s a great time to look at upgrading your furnace…or get enrolled in our Ultimate Home Comfort Plan,” she said.

Oosterveld supports their customers by offering a variety of payment plans and financing options

While Oosterveld offers complete HVAC services they also have several financing options, plans and promotions, to help anyone who has financial issues but also want to avoid having HVAC issues that will leave them without.

“Oosterveld Heating understands that heating is an investment and that problems might come at an unexpected time because that’s typically when that happens, when you least expect it and don’t have the money to fix it.” Dunsmoor said.

Their Ultimate Home Comfort Plan is a maintenance plan that includes and annual safety check and cleaning of your HVAC, free diagnostic calls, after hours “no heat” emergency calls and free labour charges on all repairs for an full year.

They also offer SNAP Financing third-party financing that if you qualify offers up to financing for all your home comfort needs, no down payment and low monthly payment programs, to name a few.

Having a properly functioning HVAC system is worth the investment whether you are buying, selling or staying in your home

While many people have endured financial hardship during the pandemic, some industries, like real estate, have flourished. They have been experiencing record-breaking sales numbers in the buyers and sellers market, which is currently still booming.

Dunsmoor said that if you’re thinking of buying or selling, having an updated and properly maintained and functioning HVAC system is a great selling feature for both buyers and sellers.

“You’re going to sell faster if people can come in and it’s turn-key with things like the furnace and air,” she said. “With all-time highs for buyers and the cost of homes, people don’t want to spend more once they get there, so investing in this means you will get a better return on the home.”

If you have no plans to move, Dunsmoor said having an updated and properly functioning HVAC system is more important than ever because we have no idea if we will have to endure anymore lockdowns, meaning, we’ll have to continue to spend the majority of our time at home.

“We are in our homes so much more so you want to make sure your furnace is relatively new so it’s functioning properly and it’s safe,” she said. “And not just for heat, but investing in the basic home comfort for your home to make sure the cooling, air quality and the entire system is running smoothly,” adding that with the cost of utilities sky-rocketing, efficiency will also save you money.
