It’s fall and it’s hot here in the Valley. It’s often hot here in the valley, and we can expect warm weather to follow us through most of the rest of the year. That makes it harder to make people think about the heating system in their home. If it’s 80°F or warmer outside, who wants to give much thought to turning on the furnace in the house, or switching the heat pump over to heating mode?

However, as a reminder about the future: temperatures during winter nights can often fall into the 40s. That might sound humorous to somebody who lives in Wisconsin, but it still means needing a heating system to help out. So when we say you need to schedule heating maintenance this fall, it’s because we know you’ll need it.

Winter is over, but that doesn’t mean you’re not still using your heater on those particularly chilly nights. And as long as your heater is running just fine, there’s no reason to stop using it, right?

That usually is right unless your heater suddenly develops a repair issue… But what with it being so close to the end of the heating season, it might be better to just stop using the heater, hold off on that repair, and then have it fixed later when it gets cold again.

That’s definitely a solid plan if your goal is to save a few bucks right now, but other than that, we can’t see it being any good for you. We can assure you that having your heater repairs performed as soon as they arise will always be the better option. Here’s why:

Heating Tip: Improving Your Heater’s Performance

Monday, January 14th, 2013

If you’re like most people, you would love to reduce the amount of energy that your home uses. Whatever your reasons are for that, focusing your efforts on your heating system this winter is a great way to potentially reduce the amount of energy that you use heating your home. At Cool Touch, we love helping our customers make their homes more efficient. We wanted to put together a quick list of some of the ways that we can help you get the most out of heating system this winter. Contact Cool Touch today to speak to one of our Surprise heating experts if you have any questions about heating performance and improving the efficiency of your home.

Regular Heating Maintenance in Surprise

One of the best ways to make sure your heating system works well is to get it regularly maintained by a professional Surprise, AZ heating contractor. There are a number of very important benefits to this.

  • Reduced repairs – When you have a trained heating technician inspecting your heating system regularly, they can find small issues before they turn into larger, more costly repairs. This is a great way to keep your heating system working well and to potentially avoid expensive repairs.
  • Improved efficiency – Over time, your heating system will start to develop small problems that will make it work harder and lower its efficiency. With regular inspections, cleaning and replacements, your heating system can maintain its efficiency.
  • Extended life – We’ve replaced countless heating systems that were destroyed by small problems that never got fixed. With regular heating maintenance, your technician can fix those problems before they break your heater permanently.

The Ductwork

The ductwork in your home is incredibly important to the proper operation of your heating system. Once the heated air leaves your furnace or heat pump, it has to travel through an extensive network of ducts. During that travel, if your ducts have holes or cracks in them, that heated air can get leaked to the outside and wasted. Having your ducts regularly inspected, cleaned and maintained is a great way to keep them working well.

If you’re interested in making sure that your heating system is working well, call the experts at Cool Touch. We provide complete heating installation and repair in Surprise, AZ for many different types and brands of heating systems. Call us today!
