In a hot town like Los Angeles, air conditioning service tends to matter a lot more than heating service. Our long summers and mild winters put the emphasis on cooling your home rather than heating it. Heating takes place only late in the year, and then only on comparatively low settings. That means your heater may end up sitting for long periods between use. In light of that, you should understand why heating maintenance is important prior to using your heater. It could save you a lot of fuss and bother in the long run.
Although lack of use doesn’t put the same strains on a heating system as constant use, it still could lead to the slow deterioration of certain components. Dust and dirt can build up inside the system, interfering with its ability to warm your house and creating unnecessary strain. Worn parts and loose fittings may become worse after just sitting there, and it can be easy to ignore lingering problems while the sweltering heat of summer makes your air condition system the top priority. All of that can create big trouble when you turn on your heater: subjecting the system to sudden stress and creating an issue just when you need it to work without a hitch.
A routine maintenance session in the fall months – before the weather gets too cold – may be just the thing to avoid those issues. A Los Angeles heating maintenance technician can clean the components, tighten any loose fittings and identify potential problems before they become a larger issue. Doing so in the late summer or early fall means you won’t be inconvenienced by the visit, and the heater will be ready to go when those first cold days finally arrive.
