We talk about maintenance a lot. Typically, it’s in regards to your air conditioning system, considering we use our air conditioners for the majority of the year in this part of the country. However, as our temperatures finally begin to cool down, it’s time to think about the other half of your HVAC system—your Houston, TX heating unit. When is the last time you had it maintained? If that answer doesn’t fall within the past year, then the time to schedule a tune-up is now!
You can think of maintenance like a tune-up for your heater—our trained technicians will thoroughly examine the system, checking the burners for proper operation, cleaning any dust or build-up, and making any adjustments deemed necessary in the process. It’s also at this time that we’ll make any recommendations for repairs. Addressing these repair needs right away ensures your system will last as long as possible. Is now really the time, though?
Maintain Your Heater to Improve Efficiency
There’s never a wrong time to improve your heating efficiency. Due to the extensive inspection and cleaning that we perform during your tune-up, your heater will be able to work more efficiently than it would have without the service. Additionally, since maintenance helps you stay on top of repair needs, you won’t have broken down parts threatening the functionality and effectiveness of the heater.
Reduce Repair Needs, Too
You should really only ever need heater repairs once every couple of years or so, if you even need them that often. If you neglect basic repairs then you’ll likely find yourself facing problems more often. Of course, skipping maintenance means there’s really no way for you to be aware of pending repair issues.
Lastly, Improve Your Heater’s Lifespan
So to recap, maintenance allows you to improve efficiency, and reduce repair needs. What does all of this mean for your heater? It means a longer service life. The last thing any homeowner wants to do is replace their heater a few years after their initial purchase, just because they failed to schedule a basic service. Maintenance allows you to stay on top of issues to keep your heating system working as effectively and efficiently as it should, for as long as it should.
There’s no reason to wait to have maintenance done. Even if we are in the dead of winter, temperatures still aren’t bitter enough here that you can’t go without your heater for a few hours to allow our service professionals a few hours to perform this service. Plus, you’ll be left with the peace of mind that your heater is in the best possible condition it can be, and you’ll be able to rely on it as a result, all winter long. So it’s never too late—nor is it ever too early—for heating system maintenance!
