Goettl Technician replacing duct filter

Problems with Your Heater in the Summer

A summer in Tempe will tax air conditioners to their limits, and keeping an AC working is a homeowner priority. So if you don’t think much about your home’s heater during the next couple of months, that’s perfectly understandable. However, that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. The summer offers an ideal time to tackle problems you may have encountered with your heater earlier in the year. And, if you’re like many homeowners and use a combination of a furnace and an air conditioner, problems with your ductwork can end up causing damage to your heater during those months when it isn’t in use.

Call Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning any time this summer for heating repair in Tempe, AZ. Don’t put off heater problems until the cold weather sets in; call us when the problems are easier to fix and it won’t bother you to have the heat shut off for a stretch.

If more than a year has gone past since your heater received an inspection and tune-up, then call Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning to sign up for our maintenance plan.

What might be wrong with my heater in summer?

Let’s phrase that a bit differently: “What might be wrong with your heater right before summer?” When the winter heating season came to a close, your home’s heating system may have started to run into operating problems causing spikes in your bills and uneven comfort throughout your home. If you shut down the system for the season with such problems unrepaired, you’re risking bigger troubles later in the year, probably during a time when you can’t afford to go without your heater. As summer heat arrives, have a technician take a look at the strange behavior from your heater. Warning signs include: grinding, booming, and clicking sounds—any strange sounds, actually—from the cabinet; odd smells from the vents; fluctuations in heating levels; the system “hard starting”; low airflow; and abrupt rises in energy bills. Do not allow such omens of malfunctions to go without repairs this summer.

Ductwork issues that affect your central air conditioner will also affect your forced-air heater (i.e. a furnace) since they use the same ventilation system. Breaks in ducts need sealing as soon as possible, because they will not only damage your AC’s cooling ability, they could lead to damage to your heater.

The air filter for your AC is also your furnace’s filter, and if you don’t change it regularly during summer you could end up causing damage to your heating system along with the AC. Please change the filter once a month this summer, for your heating system’s sake as well as your AC’s.

Even if you don’t think your home’s heater has summer repair needs, make sure that it’s up to date on its maintenance through our regular maintenance program.  You can reach us 24/7 for heating repair in Tempe, AZ.

Absolutely fantastic! Our AC unit went out unexpectedly. We called Goettl and they were here so quickly. The technician immediately knew what was wrong, didn’t try to upsell sell on anything and fixed the problem within a few minutes. Will absolutely call them again. I was super impressed by the responsiveness and professionalism of Josue.

Came home from work to an 85 degree house and a broken AC. Called at 0800 and they sent Matt Lopez out by 0915. He quickly diagnosed the issue and gave me the news that no one wants to hear, it needed replaced. He was extremely professional and kind with this news and assured me that we could figure this out. He called Tony Vizzone who helped get together estimates and drop the price to something that I was able to afford. Matt and Tony made this awful experience bearable and I can’t thank them enough for all that they have done for myself and the community. I’m a customer for life now!
