The mercurial weather in Washington State means that sometimes the sunny summer days vanish into clouds and storms. We need air conditioners to help us through most of the middle of the year, but we cannot neglect our heaters during this season. This spring, take some time (when not prepping your AC) to address any issues in your heating system so it’s ready for “that rainy day.”
For help with your heater, whether it’s maintenance or heating repairs in Everett, WA, look to the company that has served the Puget Sound Area since 1977 with quality comfort: G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, Inc.
Some specific heating issues to deal with this spring
- Late maintenance: Later is still much better than “never” when it comes to routine maintenance on your heating system. If you neglected to schedule your annual maintenance session in the fall, make sure to have it during spring. Waiting until the fall for maintenance is simply too long, and it puts your heater’s operation at great risk for failure at a time when you may need it the most.
- Duct cleaning: If you have a forced-air heating system like a furnace or a standard central heat pump, then you have ductwork. That ductwork can accumulate a large amount of contamination and debris during a season of work, and it may need to have a thorough professional cleaning to make sure it maintains your Indoor Air Quality and doesn’t reduce the efficiency of the HVAC system. (Remember, the air conditioner will use those same ducts.)
- Lingering repair needs: If your heater showed signs of malfunctions or wonky behavior at the end of winter, you definitely want these troubles solved as soon as you can. The longer any fault goes without repairs, the more likely it is to worsen and affect other systems… all of which can trigger a break down. A technician will identify any hidden issues during maintenance; have these fixed as well.
- New installation: Finally, if you current heater seemed like it was failing during the winter, struggling and costing more to run, then you should consider taking advantage of the spring to install a replacement system. You’ll have plenty of time to choose a new model and arrange for the installation without too much worry of getting caught in the cold.
