We don’t think it’s a stretch to say that the weather in Lansdale, PA is very unpredictable. We get all of the seasons, inundated with heat and humidity in the summer, and some major amounts of snowfall and frigid temperatures in the winter. When you live here, you have to be ready for anything.
That being said, springtime is the time that we like to draw attention to repairs that your HVAC system hasn’t had. Sure, your heater might have made it through the coldest parts of the winter, but have you been neglecting a clear and present problem that needs professional support?
We’ll be straight with you—we’ve got 5 reasons why we highly advise you to call our team for heating repair in Lansdale, PA. The longer your system goes unchecked, the more likely you are to be disappointed when fall rolls around.
It’s Time to Get Prepared!
We’re not trying to scare homeowners out of preparing for next winter. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming when we’re telling you that your heater needs repairs when we’re right around the corner from summer. We understand, but we’re trying to get homeowners to be more proactive. Wouldn’t it feel better to be ready for summer and the following winter?
Take a look below at our five tips to prepare for our weather.
1. Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers
Before you get your heater repaired or maintained, think about how difficult it was for your home to be kept comfortable over the winter, or over last summer. It can get muggy in the summers and very dry in the winter. In regards to heating, if the air in your home is too dry, it can be hard for your heater to produce heat since there’s not enough moisture in the air to absorb the heat and make you comfortable. We urge homeowners to invest in a humidifier for the winter or a dehumidifier in the summer to help their HVAC systems.
2. Make the Necessary Repairs
As we mentioned earlier, a heater repair is never going to get better on its own. If you think your neglected heater is “fine enough as is,” then you’re statistically more likely to encounter a surprise heater problem or even a heater breakdown next fall or winter. Have your system repaired soon.
3. Maintenance Is Key
Maintenance is an easy way to notice if your heater is suffering from a repair need that you can’t necessarily see. By having one of our technicians perform a maintenance tune-up, we can tell you explicitly if we see any problems that need to be addressed. Simple, right?
4. Keeping Things Clear
We get a lot of precipitation throughout the entire year. Pebbles, critters, dirt, and sticks can be carried with this precipitation throughout your property, which inhibits the airflow of your heater’s exhaust port or the outdoor cabinet of your AC. Keep things clear so you can maximize airflow.
5. Think About Replacement
If your heater needs replacement every season, then we might not advise you to get it repaired. Instead, it might be more cost-effective to invest in replacement services.
