While Dallas may not be known for frigid weather, dipping temperatures that start to put a chill in the air during the night in October can make your home uncomfortable by November. If warm weather has you putting off furnace or heat pump maintenance, here are some reasons to make it a priority before the temperatures start to drop.
A More Efficient Heating System
After a season of use, your heating system may be coated with dust. In addition, the individual components of your heating system require lubrication at least once per year to work properly. Furnace or heat pump maintenance services ensure that your system is cleaned and lubricated to keep it working its best. The end result is more efficient operation and lower utility costs.
Preventing Costly Repairs to Your Heat Pump or Furnace
Heating systems that have gone unused for months could have suffered damage at the end of the previous cold season. If you did not use your heating system after damaging wear and tear occurred, you may be unaware that there is a problem. Maintenance services include a thorough inspection of your entire heating system. During this inspection, a technician will keep an eye out for any signs of damage or excessive wear.
When damage or wear is detected early, technicians can suggest furnace or heat pump repair services to mitigate any further damage. You may even avoid needing to replace the entire heating system.
Keeping Your Family Comfortable
If your heating system is not working properly, your family may face chilly indoor temperatures this winter. Once colder weather arrives, making an appointment for furnace or heat pump repair may be more difficult due to the volume of emergency calls. Planning ahead by booking maintenance services in the fall gives you the opportunity to keep your heating system in top shape to prepare for cold weather.
