I guess I’ll  just wait until next winter.” If we have hit the nail on the head, then we suggest you reconsider. Sure, your heater may make it through the rest of the heating season—but at what cost?

We’re pretty much out of the heating season at this point, but nighttime temperatures are still dropping down into the low 60s and frequently into the 50s. You may need your heater to make it through the chillier nights, and it may be able to handle this type of demand. Ultimately, however, you are not doing yourself or your heater any favors by ignoring existing problems just because the end of the season is in sight.

Heater Replacement: Are You Ready?

Monday, March 12th, 2018

technicians-and-vanIf we were to ask you with a straight face which system you use more throughout the year, your heater or your air conditioner, you’d rightly laugh in our faces. The answer is obvious, as we live in such a hot climate. The fact that we use our air conditioners a lot more than our heating systems, however, is no reason to overlook just how important your home heating system truly is. You still rely on it.

That is why you really should not put off your heating replacement for too long. Sure, you may be able to squeeze another season out of your system. Just because you can keep your heater limping along for another season does not mean that you should, though. The fact of the matter is that you’ll have to replace your heater eventually and, when you do, you don’t want to wait for a complete breakdown. Here is some information to keep in mind regarding your heating replacement in Phoenix, AZ.

Is Your Heater Short Cycling?

Monday, January 29th, 2018

temperature-just-rightIf your answer to the question posed in the title of this post was, why yes it is, thank you for asking, then today’s post is for you! If your answer was what the heck does that mean, then today’s post is for you as well!

We may not use our heaters all that much around here, but that doesn’t mean you can ignore the signs that yours is not functioning properly.

Don’t Put Your Heating Repairs on the Backburner

Monday, January 15th, 2018

dog-under-blanketYou aren’t going to have to worry about waking up early to shovel out your car when you live here in Arizona, nor will you really have to worry about subzero temperatures turning every errand that you have to run into an adventure through the tundra. Our winters are mild—but not mild enough to completely put them out of mind. It does get uncomfortably chilly even around here, which is why you need your heater to function properly.

Because we don’t really rely on our heaters to the same extent that we do our air conditioning systems, it can be easy to overlook the warning signs that your heater is in trouble. Doing so will only lead to more serious problems down the road, though. If you are serious about getting the best performance that your heater has to offer, you are going to need to schedule prompt heating repairs in Chandler, AZ when trouble arises.

Dirty Air Filters Cause Heating Problems

Monday, January 1st, 2018

man-with-filterHeaters are mechanical systems,  and that means that occasional operating problems are inevitable. Routine heating maintenance will certainly help to keep any such problems to a minimum, but you are eventually going to require professional heating repairs in Phoenix, AZ.  The fact that our winter season is so mild does not mean that you can just ignore problems with your home heating system. While annual maintenance is a must, there is also one maintenance task that you should handle on your own, much more frequently than once a year.

That task? Changing your air filter. If you use a forced-air heater, such as a furnace or a heat pump, then you need to make sure you are keeping a fresh filter in that system at all times. Typically, it will need to be changed somewhere in the range of every 1-3 months. These filters are cheap and very simple to swap out, and the benefits of doing so as needed cannot be overlooked.

Boost Your Heating Efficiency

Monday, December 4th, 2017

Okay, trust us. We know that our summer seasons are a lot more intense than the cold of the winter nights in this part of the country.  Just because we are not waking up to ice on the sidewalks and subzero temperatures, however, does not mean that your heater is really any less important than your air conditioner. Yes, it may help you get through the hottest days of the year, but knowing that your AC is dependable doesn’t do much for you on a chilly night, does it?

Even if you are not running your heater as much as you do your air conditioner, it needs to work. And you know what else? We think that it needs to work efficiently. A relatively small amount of time on the playing field does not mean that your heater should get away with an inefficient heating output.
