Servicing Your Furnace Maximizes Your efficiency
For us here in Calgary, the furnace is a little more important than it is for people in other areas of the country without our harsh climate.
Nobody wants to be left without heat in mid-winter – but in Calgary that sometimes applies in autumn, spring or even summer too!
Unless your furnace is regularly serviced, you may be left in the cold and facing expensive repairs.
The professionals at Alpha Plumbing have been helping Calgary residents and businesses keep warm for years.
We’ll service your furnace or have a broken furnace back working in tip-top condition in no time…

Furnace Repair Services
Furnaces are designed to keep your property warm and, if they’re not running at maximum efficiency, they’re not doing their job properly.
If your furnace is neglected, becomes dirty or overworked due to a lack of attention, it can use excess gas or electricity, become noisy, develop faults, and require repair.
It can even stop giving out any heat at all. Brrrrrr….
You can bet your life that, if your furnace is going to have a problem, it will be in the depths of winter when it’s needed most!
When our repair technicians visit you, we start with a diagnosis and inspection. From there, flat rate repair options will be provided to you so that there are no pricing surprises.
Whether it’s a noisy furnace or a more serious issue where no heat is being emitted, we can get your furnace safe and operational again. Fast.
Other than the problems of no heat or too much noise being emitted, typical furnace repair issues include:
- A dirty or clogged filter
- Not blowing very powerfully or blowing continuously
- Cold air being blown
- A furnace part requiring replacement
- Furnace keeps shutting off
- Thermostat is not working
- No power

Regular maintenance of your furnace is important to retain optimal performance. It will also help you save money from expensive repairs later on.
A neglected, un-serviced furnace may impact your HVAC system and may:
- Run with excessive power consumption (gas or electricity)
- Be less able to control the temperature in your home
- Become very noisy
- Be more likely to break down
- Be less able to manage indoor air quality
- Become unsafe
Servicing should consist of regular cleaning and testing all the vital mechanics of your furnace.
It’s important to have a once-yearly furnace tune-up, at least, for peace of mind.
Ideally, you will get one of our technicians to check the furnace at the end of every heating season so that it’s all set and ready for the next.
Also note that to maintain the warranty for your furnace, some manufacturers insist on annual maintenance being performed.
The furnace maintenance services at Alpha Plumbing include:
- Air filter cleaning and/or replacements
- Checking static air pressure, gas pressure, and temperature rise
- Cleaning the furnace blower assembly, belts, and pulleys to blower/motor housing
- Carbon monoxide testing
- Inspection of the burners and electrics
- Inspection of the heat exchanger for potential rust and corrosion
We all know how unpredictable Calgary weather is. A regular furnace service helps you prepare better for that unpredictability.
