We all know fall means football season here in Bandera, TX, but it also means heating maintenance season. While our daytime temperatures have been quite high, our nighttime temps have been cool enough to think about turning on the heat. However, there is one important question to ask: is your heater ready for heating season? If not, then it’s time to call the experts at D’Spain Sales & Service, Inc., for annual heating maintenance.
It’s More Than an Air Filter Change
Yes, your air filter will be changed during an annual preventive maintenance appointment, but that is only one of many important tasks performed. A maintenance appointment is a comprehensive, full tune-up for your system. It doesn’t matter what type of heating system you have, annual maintenance designed to allow your heater to work optimally throughout the winter months. Here is an overview of what to expect from your technician during a routine annual maintenance appointment:
- Thorough inspection of system
- Check thermostat
- Check all electrical connections
- Check flue (for combustion systems)
- Check refrigerant level (for heat pumps)
- Clean components
- Lubricate all moving parts
- Change air filter
- Check blower assembly (if applicable)
- Conduct performance testing

Other tasks will be performed depending on the type of heating system you have, but this should give you a general idea of what to expect.
Why are these tasks so important? Each one contributes to making your heating system more efficient and better able to meet your comfort needs. They also help prevent future repairs and put your system in good working order, and this helps extend the life of your equipment.
