You have Valentine’s Day all planned. You’re going to make a special dinner. You bought her favorite movie, bought a box of chocolates, bought a bouquet of flowers, and have a nice bottle of wine. You even have a special ring that is hidden in your pocket. Everything seems perfect.
You go and pick her up to bring her back to your place, open the door, and suddenly something is wrong. The house is ice cold. Your heating system has broken down. What could you have done to avoid this disaster?
Keep Your Central HVAC Maintained
One thing that everyone knows is that it’s very rare that your HVAC system breaks down without any type of warning. That’s why regular professional maintenance is so important.
When you have your system professionally maintained regularly, problems can be spotted and taken care of before the system breaks. Not only that, but regularly maintained systems often last a lot longer.
Where a standard HVAC system struggles to hit the 10-year mark, a well maintained and serviced system can easily surpass that milestone. Additionally, the more maintenance your system has, the better the energy performance is in your home, saving you money monthly!
Choose Reliable Heating Services
As you have seen in the example above, a heater doesn’t know that it’s Valentine’s Day.
It only knows that it’s due for a breakdown and that its time is up. That’s why you want to choose the right type of heating service for your home.
You want to choose a heating service who knows and understands your needs and is ready to come out and fix your heater at the drop of a hat. Whether it’s dinner time on Valentine’s Day or it’s midnight on New Year’s Eve, a heater is going to break when it’s going to break.
So finding a company who understands that is essential. A good rule of thumb is to find a company that offers 24-hour emergency services because more often than not, issues happen when we least expect them.
Don’t Forget Heater & AC Filter Maintenance
There are some things that you can do to show your HVAC some love and help them keep running.
One of the easiest things that you can do is to make sure that you’re changing your filters for your heating and cooling system.
Not only will this help you save money every month when it comes to your electric bill, since your system will run more efficiently, it will also help your system last a lot longer, which also is going to help you save money.
Having to replace your heater and your air conditioner will happen eventually, but when they’re well maintained it doesn’t have to happen yet. One of the worst things that can happen is to have a special night like Valentine’s Day ruined because your heater stopped working.
The tips above can help you with avoiding this type of disaster and making sure that the night goes exactly as you planned for it to go. If you are looking for a new heating and cooling service in the Owasso, OK area, give us a call at Torch Service Company.
