Here’s Why Now Is the Perfect Time for a Heating Tune-Up!

Monday, October 4th, 2021

We don’t get the kind of seasons around here that we see in movies and on television. That’s a good thing in our opinion since we get beautiful sunny weather and mild winters for the majority of the year. No crazy snowstorms for us!

It’s important that you schedule your heater for maintenance around this time to help it last longer and run efficiently. Heating systems that undergo a routine tune-up every year will not only save you money in the long run, but will also need repairs less often than an unmaintained system.

Today, we’re going to talk about the benefits of a heater tune-up. We’ll specify why fall is the perfect time of year to get your heater serviced by a professional.

Why Does My Heater Smell Like That?

Monday, October 5th, 2020

That’s a good question! But while it’s a good question, it’s not an unanswerable one. Heaters are pieces of machinery that work similarly to cars, meaning a professional technician can usually tell what’s making a specific smell or noise. That being said, what you really want to be asking is if that smell is normal or abnormal.

A normal smell can be something that your heater makes at the start of the season, while it burns away dust that has collected throughout the summer months. An abnormal smell could be something as brutal as carbon monoxide or a gas leak. Regardless of which particular smell you’re getting, you’re going to want to know if you need help or not.

We provide targeted repairs, maintenance, and help for HVAC systems in Whittier, CA. Keep reading to find the answers you’re looking for, and make sure to call us when you need a quick fix.
