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 Roanoke. But, there’s also that long list of must-do’s before the cold weather sets in. Although the outdoor yard work and home projects are probably at the top of your list, there’s at least one indoor thing you should consider handling early: getting your furnace service and tune-up appointment scheduled.

The pros at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning recommend that furnace service and maintenance be performed at least annually in order to prevent a breakdown in the dead of winter, when the furnace is needed most. There are a host of benefits to getting it done before the cold and crisp weather sets in in Roanoke, too. Check out some of the top benefits of furnace service: 

  • Helps maintain your heating system’s energy efficiency. Regular maintenance can help ensure that your furnace works at its top efficiency throughout the coldest months of the year, helping you save on your heating costs.

  • Ensures your furnace is in peak shape. From checking airflow to full multi-point inspections, you can be certain your furnace is ready for whatever Mother Nature decides to throw at Roanoke this year.

  • Lowers the chances of breakdowns. Just about the last thing you want to take place 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 create 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 key to keeping your home safe through the heating season.

  • Keeps your warranty valid. Many manufacturers require that you have at least one furnace service appointment per year in order to maintain your warranty, so getting regular maintenance completed can save you money if worse problems occur later.

Taking proper care of your furnace has a number of additional benefits, and getting furnace service done annually is just the first step. It’ll help keep your home comfortable throughout the colder months and save you time later because you’re less likely to need more service, maintenance or repairs in the middle of winter when heating and cooling companies like Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning are at their busiest.
