The Importance of Heater Tune-Ups
Even in The Greater Houston Area, heating a home during the cool season can be a budget line item. While the winter temperatures aren’t as cold as our summers are hot, it is always in your best interest to save money wherever you can. A major source of savings during the winter can be to invest in a heater tune-up or routine furnace maintenance. Routine maintenance can save money by increasing the efficiency of your heater. This reduction in heating bills can add up when taken into account over the course of several months.
Along with saving money on operating costs, heater tune-ups can reduce costs further by preventing major problems. Furnace problems in the middle of the winter can add huge unexpected costs as well as uncomfortable delays while you wait for repairs. By scheduling tune-ups, homeowners can expect their heating equipment to run more effectively and reliably through the heating season. When these savings are coupled with increased efficiency, heater tune-ups become cost-effective and save homeowners money over the season.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is my heat running but not heating?
There are a few reasons why your heat might be running but not heating. The most common problem is a faulty thermostat. If the thermostat isn't working properly, it won't send a signal to the furnace to turn on.
Another possibility is that the furnace itself is broken. If the furnace isn't working, the heat will still run, but it won't be able to warm up your home.
If you're not sure what's causing the problem, it's best to call a heating repair technician. They can inspect your system and diagnose the issue.
Why is heat not coming out of my vents?
You may have a clogged vent. This can be caused by anything from animals building nests to leaves and other debris getting caught in the vents.
If your vents are clogged, it will prevent the heat from circulating through your home, which can cost you money in increased energy bills. It's also dangerous to have a buildup of heat in your home, as it can quickly become very hot.
If you think that your vents may be clogged, call a heating repair service to come and take a look. They will be able to clear the vents and help get your home back to its normal temperature.
How do you fix a furnace that overheats?
If your furnace is overheating, it's important to have it fixed by a professional as soon as possible. Overheating can cause extensive damage to your furnace, and can even be dangerous.
There are a few things you can do in the meantime to try to fix the problem:
1) Check the filters and make sure they're clean. Dirty filters can cause the furnace to overheat.
2) Make sure all the vents are open and that there isn't any obstruction blocking the airflow.
3) Try turning off the power to the furnace for a few minutes, then turn it back on. This might reset the system and help it cool down.
4) If all else fails, call in a professional.
