Professional Heating & Furnace Maintenance Services Houston

In Southeast Texas, we almost forget that we have heaters in our homes, so it makes sense that we can neglect to maintain them. The consequence of this neglect could be waking up on that rare cold day in Houston, only to find out your heating system isn’t working.

Having an annual heating maintenance in Houston service call from Nick’s AC will help ensure your system is operating at peak performance. An additional benefit of a well-tuned heating system is the savings you’ll see on your energy bill almost immediately. Regular maintenance of your home’s air conditioning and heating systems can reduce your energy bills by as much as 20%.

Having a regular annual schedule for your heating maintenance in Houston is vital from a safety standpoint as well. Improperly functioning heating systems can create dangerous situations like gas leaks and carbon monoxide build-up.

When you schedule your system for a heating maintenance in Houston service call, Nick’s HVAC technicians will visually inspect your furnace and other heating components.

Nick’s Heating Maintenance in Houston Services

Check Thermostat Accuracy: While not much of an issue on newer HVAC systems, as most modern units use a digital thermostat to monitor and control the temperature. In older heating systems that still use a mercury vial, it may be necessary to perform a manual cleaning and calibration of the thermostat.

Inspect Heat Exchanger: The heat exchanger is essentially the heart of your heating system, made up of a series of copper tubes or coils, located just after the blower fan. When the coils are heated, either by gas or electric, the air that passes across them is warmed.

Heat exchangers need to be checked regularly for signs of corrosion, as cracked heat exchangers can introduce carbon monoxide into your home.

Check Air Filters: Inspect all air filters in your heating system and replace those that are dirty or clogged. It’s possible to see an immediate reduction in your winter energy bills simply by replacing your HVAC system’s air filters. Also, any dust and debris that has accumulated around your heating elements and intake vent will be cleared.

Nick’s AC can perform heating maintenance in Houston all year round, but the best time to schedule it is in the fall months. Having your heating system maintained just before the winter months will give you the security of knowing your HVAC system is ready for the challenge.

Call Nick’s AC to schedule your annual heating maintenance in Houston today. We’re on the way.

I called Nick’s Plumbing to complete a natural gas line replace and repair job after being frustrated with the incompetence of the supposed “expert” plumbers in West University Place. Nick’s employees were knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. They finished a job in a day that the prior company could not complete in a week – and at a much lower cost. Many thanks!

Called on Saturday around 11 am and they were onsite within an hour to help get our domestic pumps up and running for 200+ apartment homes. Fantastic service, communication, and personnel. Pricing was very reasonable too.
