Q. Emergency Repair vs Maintenance. Which is more important?
When you have no heat or no cooling, would you be prepared to wait for service because our technician was doing maintenance routine work for other customers? The answer we hear categorically is that you are not. Our customers want and expect fast emergency service, and that is exactly what AtlasCare delivers.
At AtlasCare, we are focused on delivering world-class service to our customers in the GTA. We want to provide same day repairs. This is almost impossible to do if we are tied up doing maintenance when we could be responding to your emergency. The solution is to do your tune up outside of the peak repair seasons of June and July for air conditioners and October and November for furnaces and boilers.
There is no magic as to when air conditioners should be maintained. As an industry we have done a pretty good job convincing homeowners to get their air conditioners tuned up in the spring before the weather gets hot and for furnaces and boilers in the fall before it gets cold. Your Toronto furnace or air conditioner is a lot like a person. in that it needs regular, yearly checkups to make sure everything is running smoothly. The fact of the matter is that it can be done at any time as long as it gets done once a year. With our cars we get our tuneups done at discrete intervals not just when we are about to take a long trip. This is no different.
This spring you can start up your air conditioner on your own without waiting for our technician. Just make sure the winter cover has been removed (if you have one) and the furnace filter is clean and you’re good to go! If you are still worried about breakdowns, consider one of our protection plans with low monthly fees.
