With the temperatures fluctuating in the 80s and 90s in the Lewisville, Lantana and Flower Mound areas lately, it probably feels strange to think about your home heating system right now. But take a look at your calendar: Fall is here, and the famously temperamental Texas weather is sure to deliver cooler temperatures when we least expect it. Although you may not turn on your heater until November, now is the ideal time to prepare it for the heavy lifting ahead.
Why Early Fall is the Optimal Time for Heating Maintenance
- Convenience – Because you do have the luxury of a bit more time, you can plan your appointments ahead of time to better meet your schedule. Waiting until you need your heating system and finding out there’s an issue at the last minute is decidedly inconvenient, and puts you at risk of going longer without heat. Take advantage of the time you have and schedule your maintenance today.
- Preparedness – Fall weather is often unpredictable. You never know when the first chilly, rainy day may blow through. It’s prudent to have a heater that’s in prime condition and operating reliably long before the official start of winter.
- Prevention – Maintenance on your system before you need to fire it up for the first cold day will identify any repairs that need to be completed well in advance. If anything does come up that requires scheduling a separate furnace repair, you’ll have the benefit of being able to plan ahead.
