How to Prepare Your HVAC System for the Heating Season in Tucson

 

With the heating season rapidly approaching, now is a great time to make sure that your heating system is in prime operating condition. The last thing you want is for your heater to breakdown in the middle of winter. The following are some of the best ways to ensure that your heating system will keep performing throughout the next few months.

Fall Preventative Maintenance

It is recommended that you schedule preventative maintenance for your heating system at least once a year. Since the best time to conduct any maintenance is right before a period of heavy usage, fall is the best time of year to get your heating system checked.

Having your heating system checked during the fall provides a number of great benefits. First, your HVAC technician will be able to identify and eliminate any problems that may become serious later on. It is always cheaper to fix these minor issues early, than it is to deal with them after they start to cause serious damage to your heating system. You’ll also be spared the inconvenience of having to call a professional if your heater breaks down during the winter. The heating season tends to place the most demand on HVAC repair services. You may have to wait several days for a repair technician during winter, which means several uncomfortable days without heat.

Vigilance

Even after your annual preventative maintenance, problems may arise that require professional attention. Keep a sharp eye on your heating system, paying attention to the level of heat and any strange noises that may occur. If your heater is having trouble heating the house evenly, it could be a problem with the thermostat or ductwork. If your system seems to be on all the time, or cycling on and off rapidly, it could mean that your heater is the wrong size or is overheating. The best way to avoid sudden breakdowns and other expensive problems is to always pay attention when your heater starts acting strange.
