It’s Time for a Mid-Winter Heater Check In

gas-furnace-burnersWe made it halfway through winter San Antonio, TX. Sure, we’re not getting the levels of snow that our neighbors up north are getting, but this is still no small feat. You need to give yourself a round of applause for making it this far. If you’ve been able to make it through the winter season without any hiccups, it means that you’ve prepared your heating system to perfection. If you are having a little trouble with your heater, you don’t have to get down on yourself about it, it just means that you need to schedule an appointment for HVAC service in San Antonio, TX.

Make Sure You Pay Attention to These Things

There are several things that you should pay attention to when you’re trying to keep your home warm in winter. We think that a big misstep other HVAC companies make is not educating their customers throughout the process. Sure, the biggest priority during a heating service is to get in, solve the problem you’re having, and then to get out of your hair in a flash. The problem is that if you don’t know what led to the problem you’re having then it’s likely that you’ll fall into the same trap again.

We don’t want this to happen. We’re in the business of fixing HVAC problems and your comfort is always our number one priority. Make sure that you’re watching out for these problems:

Warning Signs

These are signs that your heater is probably going to need repair work in the near future:

  • Short cycling
  • High energy bills
  • Low heat output
  • Low airflow
  • Trouble getting warm in your home

Don’t ignore the warning signs! Instead, call on our team members.

User Error

Not all the heating problems that you experience at home are just something you can chalk up to a bad luck. Sometimes, your heating problem is the result of years of bad user operation. Watch out for these problems:

  • You’re Turning Your Thermostat Up Way Too High: We know that it’s tempting to come home out of the cold and crank that thermostat up as high as it can go. However, this is never a good idea. A high temperature doesn’t make your home heat up any faster. You always want to set your thermostat to a mild temperature and give it the time it needs to heat up to the right temperature.
  • You’re Not Investing in the Right Equipment: Maybe you tried to buy a low-budget heater or maybe you’ve got an old thermostat—this is a hard and expensive lesson to learn, but you should always invest in top of the line equipment. It benefits you overall.
  • You Skip Out on Maintenance: The last thing you want to do is skip out of preventative maintenance. Preventative maintenance is just that… preventative. It can be the one quick, cheap, and easy thing that’s going to save you from a mid-winter hassle further down the line.
