Our air conditioning systems here in Texas do work all around the year. A warm day is never far off, even in January and February. Because of this, locals often don’t think much about the heating systems in their homes or the important work they do, and they end up forgetting to schedule their annual heating maintenance. This can lead to trouble!
Now that we’re well into the fall, we urge you to arrange for maintenance for your residential heating system with our team. The sooner you call, the easier it is to make a convenient appointment.
Heating Maintenance Benefits You in Numerous Ways
Why do heating maintenance every year? The same reason you do air conditioning maintenance every year. The attention from professionals improves system performance, reduces the number of repairs and breakdowns, increases the heater’s service life, and keeps it operating safely.
We want to focus on that last point, because if you use a gas furnace for home comfort, it’s necessary to have the furnace inspected each fall to keep it from becoming hazardous. Gas furnaces are built to demanding safety specifications, but if any furnace is allowed to slowly deteriorate over the years without service to adjust, inspect, and tune it up, it can pose dangers from toxic gas leaks and combustion. So, no matter how much or how little use the gas furnace gets, it’s vital it receives maintenance each year.
(By the way, the warranty for most heating systems will be voided unless they receive annual maintenance from licensed professionals. Yet another reason to never skip it.)
The Special Case of Heat Pumps
Heat pumps are popular in Texas because they work as powerful air conditioners and can switch to working as efficient heaters when required. You might think a heat pump only needs an inspection and tune-up once a year—but it needs it twice. Fall maintenance is necessary to help a heat pump through the second half of its job during the year. This will not only protect your home’s heating, it will also protect its cooling, since you’ll still need the heat pump working in cooling mode during the summer. Make sure to keep up with biannual maintenance for your heat pump.
