Even In Sultry Texas, Fall Will Soon Arrive — Have You Scheduled Your Service Check?

This has been one of the hottest summers on record. August was ravaged with 100-plus degree temperatures. It’s been so hot that it may seem unfathomable to some that fall is just around the corner. Even though San Antonio is not known for it’s brutally cold winters, it’s important to have your furnace inspected to make sure that all components of your heating system are working properly in time for winter.

This service should be performed annually to ensure that the furnace isn’t wearing itself out too quickly. This can cause it to stop working entirely, or worse, it could begin to pump deadly carbon monoxide into your home.You should consult a professional to perform this work for you as they know exactly what to look for in your system. An HVAC professional will include these checks to perform an efficient yearly service:

  • Make sure the thermostat is working correctly
  • Inspect the electrical components within the system
  • Check and oil motors as necessary
  • Change or clean the air filter if needed
  • Make sure air flow is at capacity
  • Clean evaporator coil
  • Check the heat exchanger to make sure no cracks are present

Throughout the year, there are things that you can do to save yourself some of the time and hassle involved with turning on the heater for the first time, only to realize that it doesn’t work. For example, you should change your filters regularly, as too much dust can build up and restrict air flow. When air flow is restricted, it can cause the heat exchanger to overwork itself and overheat. During the summer, it is common for people to place flammable objects such as gas cans and lawnmowers next to the furnace. Before turning the furnace or radiator on, make sure that nothing like this is near it.
