With the temperatures taking a nose dive over the past couple of weeks, we’ve started firing up our furnaces and heaters. Give it another couple of weeks and we will be depending on them to stay warm 24/7! Here in Texas, our Winter’s aren’t as harsh as they are in the North, but we still rely on our heaters, heat pumps, and furnaces. While they aren’t put under extreme conditions, they are put under a different kind of stress! Stopping and starting multiple times can show wear and tear on any HVAC unit. With that being said, here are a few reasons you should let an HVAC professional conduct a heating tune-up.
By having your heating unit serviced by a professional, you will extend its life. During a heating tune-up, we will inspect all parts and replace any of them that are showing signs of wear and tear. This eliminates the need for your unit to struggle and lessens the chances of a worn part creating other problems.
Cheaper Electric Bills
Electricity costs are one of the biggest expenses you have as a homeowner. We will test and observe your heating unit to make sure it is as efficient as possible. By keeping your heating unit running efficiently, you will lessen the load on your wallet.
Maintain Your Warranty
Most HVAC manufacturer warranties require you to have their equipment serviced on a regular basis by an accredited professional. In the event that your unit fails, the manufacturer may not honor the warranty if it’s been determined that it has not been properly maintained.
If you are using a gas heater, it’s imperative that you find and replace any worn parts, as they may cause a leak and cause an unsafe environment for you and your family.
