Ensure Your Heater is Working When Florida Weather Turns Cold
No doubt living in Florida, we do not experience cold the way those in northern states do. However, when we do get a cold snap, the air’s humidity levels make it bitter cold, and we need our heaters. Since we use heaters so seldom, Florida homeowners should ensure that it receives the required heater maintenance and service.
Our technicians at Veterans AC and Heat do their part to ensure your heater will work year after year. You can count on our team to thoroughly inspect your HVAC system, repair and replace any parts needing attention. Our technicians will examine all filters, cables, vents, and connections each time we come out.
When you schedule regular maintenance for your heater, it benefits your HVAC system in three ways.
- Maintenance extends the life of the system.
- Servicing the system ensures energy efficiency.
- It reduces the cost of running the system and costly repairs.
The average lifespan of an HVAC system is around 15 years, depending on how the unit was cared for. You see, the air conditioning and heater are just like any other motor. For instance, you wouldn’t run a car for years without any oil changes or maintenance.
Your HVAC unit is the same. It is running almost all of the time in Florida. And then it occasionally gets switched over to the heater. As homeowners, we expect the transition from AC to heat to be a smooth switch. However, you cannot expect that if you have not kept up with regular maintenance.
When you schedule regular maintenance, the technician will make sure the system works without any strain on the system. Then, your HVAC will last well into 15 years.
When you forget to change the filters on your heater or AC unit, the system must work harder to pull air through a dirty filter. What’s more, the dirty filter can build up in the vents that will eventually come out into your home and on your ceiling.
Less pull on the system means less energy used. You can make sure your system is running efficiently with regular maintenance.
The fact is a maintained heater costs less to use. It will lower your energy bill because the HVAC is working correctly. Additionally, your technician will be available to catch any issues beginning in your system before they become costly repairs.
Prolong the life of your current system by detecting problems before they become breakdowns.
Heating systems will usually send out a signal that they are having a problem, such as the following.
- A rising energy bill.
- The Heat will not push through the vents.
- A burning smell may mean an issue.
- Unfamiliar sounds like squealing and banging mean trouble.
Should you notice any of these, turn off the heater and call Veterans AC and Heat for a repair. All types of heaters are, in essence, a machine that can experience loose connections, overused parts, clogs, and other issues. Having regular service calls will help to eliminate the frequency of the problems.
