Why Get Heating Maintenance this Fall

Heating in San Antonio TX is a seasonal thing. We don’t use our heaters much in the summertime, when temperatures are warm, but winter nights can get pretty chilly. A good heater can make the difference between a warm, cozy night at home and an uncomfortable evening wrapped up in blankets. That’s why it pays to keep your heater properly serviced and maintained. A maintenance session entails a thorough cleaning, tightening any loose parts and generally sprucing up the unit so that it functions at maximum efficiency. That helps reduce the risk of a more serious breakdown later on.  The fall makes an excellent time to plan for maintenance. Why get heating maintenance in the fall? The answers are elementary.

We don’t see much call for heating here in the summer time, which means your heating system likely sits idle for months at a time. When you’re ready to use it again, it’s probably accrued a great deal of dust and dirt, which creates friction in the system and increases overall strain. Similarly, bolts and other small components may have come loose last winter, but haven’t been dealt with since the heater hasn’t been used. Unless you address those issues, you’ll increase the chances of a more serious repair in the near future.

The fall makes a good time to deal with that not only because it reduces the risk of a breakdown just when you need the heater the most, but it gives the technician time and flexibility to do what he needs to do. It also leaves the heater in tip-top shape before it’s needed on a daily basis, which lowers your monthly bills in addition to adding a little insurance against a larger repair bill.
