Too Early to Schedule HVAC Maintenance? Not at All!

Monday, February 8th, 2021

service-blue-markerIt’s early February, and the ol’ groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter. However, the groundhog has been right approximately 30% of the time, which is less than chance, and we live in Texas where we generally don’t need to worry about long winters.

And that’s a lengthy way of saying that we’re already heading toward warmer weather here and it’s time to think about scheduling routine HVAC maintenance so your AC is ready to go into spring. But you shouldn’t just abandon your heater. Take advantage of this slower time to have any lingering heater repair in Katy, TX taken care of. In fact, why not arrange for both at one time?

What to Do With Your Heater When It’s Not Running

Monday, January 25th, 2021

old-air-conditionerHome heating in Sugar Land, TX is different from many other parts of the country. After all, we’re now in late January and the temperatures are often in the low 70s. Since we recommend a winter setting on the thermostat of 68°F, that means your heater won’t be running much. It might turn on a few times in the evening, but when you put in a set-back temperature at night of around 60°F, that will also prevent the heater from coming on. 

You might be content to just let the heater sit there, only occasionally turning on and sometimes remaining off for days at a time. Soon you’ll start having the AC run on the regular. But … is there anything you should be doing about the heater during these winter down-times? You won’t shut it off entirely like you do for summer, but are there any maintenance steps to take? Sort of like how your car still needs care even if it sits unused in the garage for weeks at a time?

Well, yes, there are a few things to do about your heater during the lulls.

Heating Maintenance? Yes, You Need It Each Year!

Monday, November 2nd, 2020

furnace-isolated-whiteAir conditioning is the top Houston, TX, HVAC service we handle. That makes sense because the intense heat of the middle of the year is the most daunting comfort challenge local homes face. But that doesn’t mean we can ignore heating. Air conditioners work almost every month of the year, but heaters will see their share of “action” in winter months. 

We understand it’s easy to overlook regular heating maintenance service during the year. It can be hard to even think about the word heating when you still have the AC running on a regular basis. But we aim to keep our customers informed, and so we need to remind them that heating maintenance must be done annually for it to provide the best benefits.
