Technician working on furnaceNow is the time for our temperatures to begin cooling down. And while we may not have as bitterly cold winters as other parts of the country, the dip in temperature is still enough to warrant the use of a fully functional and highly efficient heating system. The only way to ensure this is the case for you this year is to invest in one of the most important San Antonio, TX HVAC services there is—heating maintenance.

Maintenance is essential for ensuring your comfort, as well as the best way to ensure the integrity of your heating system. There are a number of benefits to scheduling annual tune-ups—or biannual, if you’re using a heat pump. Enrolling in a maintenance program is even better, as it takes the worry of remembering to schedule appointments out of your hands.

But is maintenance really worth it? To put it simply, yes. Keep reading to learn why. OR you can skip straight to scheduling a service or requesting an estimate!

Your Heater Will Work More Reliably

There are many reasons you should schedule heating maintenance on a regular basis. One of the most important is that it helps your heater work more reliably throughout this coming winter, and for the years to come.

The last thing you want to deal with on one of the coldest nights of the year is a heating system that’s failed on you or is displaying signs that it’s about to break down. During your maintenance session, our highly trained and experienced technicians will tune-up and thoroughly clean your system, and also locate any potential problem areas, so you don’t have to worry about it making it through the cold spell.

Your Heater Will Last Longer

Any heating or cooling system that breaks down before its estimated lifespan means a costly replacement, probably way before you were ready for one. The ideal way to get a good return on you investment of your heater is to get it to last as long as possible. Scheduling regular maintenance is the best way to do this!

You’ll Save Energy

The wear and tear that a heating system accumulates over each year of use adds up to a significant drop in system efficiency. At least, it does this without maintenance. In fact on average, HVAC systems lose about 5% of their energy efficiency for each year that maintenance is skipped.

As a result, it won’t take long before utility bills become much higher than they should be. Routine annual, or biannual, maintenance help your heater run at 95% of its original efficiency through its entire lifecycle, keeping your bills down year after year.
