Southern California is known, and envied, world-wide for its ideal climate of year-round sun with the mildest of winters. The idea of So Cal residents having trouble with their heating systems might sound comical to people who live in colder northern and eastern climates. But Southern California does have cold spells, especially during winter nights, so heater maintenance and repair is still important. On top of that, Southern California has some specific heating needs that aren’t common in other parts of the country.

Some specific Southern California heating needs:
- Heating efficiency: Everyone wants to have high energy-efficiency from their heaters, but in Southern California we need to take special care about it because we do not run our heaters often, and we don’t want a large energy drain during the short time they do run. This can throw off your budget when the heater adds a large price increase. So even though our heaters may not operate as those in Alaska, we need to take just as good care of them with prompt repairs and maintenance so we don’t suffer high bills when we turn them on.
- Early replacements: In Southern California, we often end up needing to replace our heaters earlier than we should because it’s easy to delay getting repairs when we know the weather will probably improve in a few days. Well, the weather may get warmer, but a broken component in a heater will not get less broken during that down period. The next time you turn the heater on, the damaged part will cause more problems, eventually leading to a broken heater. Don’t delay with repairs, no matter what the weather forecast looks like: you want a heater to last as long as it can.
- Poor insulation: Insulation is important for keeping a house both cool and warm, since it blocks the movement of heat either direction. However, Southern California homes, especially older ones, often have insufficient insulation around doors and windows and the many airy spaces built for warm weather. Basically, So Cal homes can get very drafty. This call for superior heating power and efficiency, as well as making sure you have sufficient insulation in the walls.
