Even though Phoenix is well-known as one of the hottest areas in the country, it still gets cold during the winter months. For example, from November through March, the average low temperatures register from the mid-40s to the low 50s. No matter where you live, that’s cold, and it’s why you need to keep your heating system running in tip-top shape.
What is a Heating System?
Your heating system uses a boiler, furnace, or heat pump to generate and distribute heat throughout your home. In Phoenix, most heating systems are part of an HVAC system (the H in HVAC stands for heating, after all). The heating system pulls air from your home and moves it across the heat exchanger. The warmed air is then distributed throughout your home via the ductwork.
Older homes and those in built in colder climates often use a boiler heating system, which heats water and distributes steam and hot water to radiators or radiant floor systems.
The Benefits of Having a Well-Maintained Heating System
As with your air conditioner, you want to maintain your heating system to ensure it runs smoothly and functions well. Not only do you lower your energy costs, you also extend the life of the unit.
The best way to care for your heating system is by scheduling regular preventive maintenance, preferably during the fall. These annual service calls allow you to discover potential issues early, while they’re still easy – and cheap – to address.
When to Call the Experts
Heating systems rarely fail out of the blue; there are nearly always signs that trouble is on the horizon. Unusual sounds or smells, higher energy bills, and changing or uneven temperatures throughout the home are all signs that it’s time to schedule a service call.
