Air conditioning season lasts a long time here in Orlando, FL, which is why we’re such a thriving tourist spot. Long summers and mild winters have a way of putting people at ease, and local residents justifiably spend more time concerned about their air conditioning systems than their heating systems. But with fall well underway, temperatures are going to drop, and while an operating heater isn’t as pressing a concern as an operating air conditioner, you don’t want your furnace to run into trouble on the coldest nights of the year.
The solution is to schedule a heater maintenance session from a trained professional now, before the weather gets any colder. Maintenance sessions aren’t designed to fix a specific problem. Rather, they’re designed to correct all of those countless little problems incurred by normal use: clogged burners, loose bolts, problems with the filters and the like. In addition, it gives the technician a chance to look for any larger problems that may be brewing and schedule a formal repair session to deal with them if they are. Ideally, you should schedule one or two maintenance sessions for your heating system every year.
The benefits of such attention can be divided into two:
- Improved Efficiency. Things like clogged filters and shaky fittings can rob your heating system of efficiency, leading to higher monthly costs and increased strain on other components. Regular maintenance sessions help ease that strain, lowering your bills and the risk of more serious repairs.
- A Quick Jump on Repair Issues. In the event that more serious repairs are needed, the maintenance session lets you spot the issue before it shuts your heater down. Not only does that let you schedule a repair session on your timetable instead of scrambling in the face of a crisis, but it usually reduces the costs involved, since the problem won’t have any additional time to get worse.
