Should I Schedule Heater Maintenance During the Summer?

With summer upon us, it seems unlikely that most Florida residents are thinking about their heaters right now. However, while it’s undoubtedly more important to enter the summer with a well-maintained AC, it’s also a good idea to have a technician inspect your whole HVAC system.

You May Want to Schedule Heater Maintenance During the Summer Because:  

  • It’s smart to plan ahead: Scheduling heater maintenance in the summer can save you from having to get repairs done later in the year. Think back to the last time you used your equipment: was it making strange noises? Was it performing at optimum efficiency? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you may want to have a technician come in to give your system a tune-up at the end of summer, or at least the beginning of fall.
  • Your system could probably use a good cleaning: As the summer goes on and your heater sits there for months without being used, chances are it’s going to get pretty dirty. In general, you should always have your system cleaned when there’s a change in the seasons, to ensure all the components are dust-free and the unit is able to function at peak efficiency. So just as you should have your air conditioner cleaned before the start of summer, you should also have your heater cleaned before the start of winter.
  • Your filters may be old: This goes for your AC unit as well, but it’s easy to forget that your heating system may not have had its filter changed in months if you haven’t been using it. While your AC filter should be changed every 1-2 months, heater filters generally need to be switched out every 6, so by replacing yours in the summer you’ll be completely ready by the time winter rolls around.
  • You don’t want to deal with dangerous wires: When the temperature drops, most people just go ahead and turn their heaters on, without even thinking of the potential consequences. Yet this can be very dangerous, especially if anything has gone wrong with the system’s wiring. Having a professional HVAC tech look at the system’s electrical components will guarantee that everything is safe and ready to use during the winter months.
  • It improves indoor air quality: If left unchecked, certain types of heaters can release noxious gas, which may be extremely hazardous for you and your family. That’s why in addition to changing the air filter, you should have a qualified technician inspect your heater for malfunctions. This will reinforce the unit’s safety, and make sure nothing affects your indoor air quality during the fall and winter.
