Why Do I Need End-of-Season Maintenance?
Essentially, it’s all about preservation and preparation. When the next cold spell rolls around, you want to be absolutely sure your heating system kicks into gear without a worry or hiccup. And to get that, the best way is to take care of business now, so you can have all of the good heating service you need later. Here’s what needs doing:
- Replace your air filter. Dust might as well be synonymous with sunlight here in Texas, and your air filter can attest to that readily. Swap out your filter now to prevent all of the debris it has accumulated from forming into thicker clots that can do serious harm to your system at the end of this year.
- Dust off the system. Thick coats of dust not only reduce the efficiency of your furnace, but can lead to complications in the system itself—as well as present a fire hazard! For the best results next year, be sure to keep the system clear of funk and junk.
- Clear your outdoor unit. We wouldn’t recommend covering it, though we know it’s tempting. But a covered outdoor unit makes for an appetizing nest for critters, and you definitely don’t want a nest in there when you kick the furnace back on. Just give it a good brushing with a stiff broom, and you’re good to go.
These should all be taken care of just as soon as you retire your furnace. But beyond these, there’s a more important task to be done.

There is absolutely no replacement for professional tune-up and maintenance services. When you call on our certified maintenance team, you can be sure that when winter strikes again, you’ll be getting the most efficient, effective heating your system can provide, no question about it.
Why do it now, rather than in the fall? Well, to be completely honest, we’d do both. At the end-of-the season, your furnace basically ran a marathon. It’s tuckered, and needs professional care to avoid developing complications over the coming months. But those months are long, and getting the care again in the late fall ensures you don’t get any breakdowns throughout the winter.
It’s all about that preparation we were talking about before. A maintenance service is super cost-effective, especially when compared to an emergency repair service!
