Benefits of Having Your Furnace Serviced Before Winter

September 24, 2015

There are a number of fun things to do in the fall, especially in Albany. But, there’s also that huge list of must-do’s before the cold weather arrives. Although the outdoor yard work and home projects are likely at the top of your list, there’s at least one indoor task you should consider taking care of early: getting your furnace service and tune-up appointment set up.

The team at Roland J. Down Service Experts recommend that furnace service and maintenance be performed at least annually to help prevent a breakdown in the middle of winter, when the furnace is needed most. There are a host of benefits to getting it performed before the cold and crisp weather reaches Albany, too. Take a peek at some of the top benefits of furnace service: 

  • Helps maintain your heating system’s energy efficiency. Regular maintenance can help make certain that your furnace operates at its highest efficiency throughout the coldest months of the year, helping you save on your heating expenses.

  • Ensures your furnace is in its best shape. From checking airflow to full multi-point inspections, you can be certain your furnace is ready to handle whatever Mother Nature decides to throw at Albany this season.

  • Reduces the chances of breakdowns. Just about the last thing you want to happen on a chilly winter day is have your furnace stop working, especially when heating companies are limited in their capacity for new customers. A furnace service appointment now will allow the technician to find potential problems and solve them before they happen.

  • Helps keep your home safe. All furnaces burn some type of fuel to produce heat, and cracks and leaks around the fuel area could compromise your family’s safety. Inspecting the heat exchanger, gas burner and gas valve calibration are critical to keeping your home safe through the winter.

  • Keeps your warranty valid. Many manufacturers require that you have at least one furnace service appointment per year in order to keep your warranty, so getting regular maintenance performed can save you money if bigger problems occur in the future.

Taking proper care of your furnace has plenty of additional bonuses, and getting furnace service completed annually is just the first step. It’ll help keep your home comfortable throughout the cold season and save you time later because you’re less likely to need additional service, maintenance or repairs in the middle of winter when heating and cooling companies like Roland J. Down Service Experts are at their busiest.
