Sometimes, you might think the only way to improve your heating system is through heating repair work.

We’ve collected a list of all the best tips below for your convenience.

The Best Winter Heating Tips

You can follow these simple tips to get more from your heater this winter:

Always Schedule That Maintenance Appointment

So fall rolls around here in Lake Jackson and you’re thinking to yourself, “Do I really need to schedule a maintenance appointment?” The answer is yes—you really do. Maintenance is a preventive measure. When you go the extra mile of scheduling a maintenance appointment, you’re investing in your heater. This means you can reduce the risk of a breakdown, increase the quality of your heating, and lower the price of your heating bill just by scheduling one appointment.

We know that maintenance appointments can get away from you fast if you’re not on top of them. This is why we have a great maintenance program here at Switzerland Air. You can get in touch with us to learn more about it today.

Set Your Thermostat at a Reasonable Temperature

Wondering what’s considered “reasonable”? A lot of homeowners are in the same position. Where they go wrong is assuming that they know, but that’s why we’re here today. Determining what’s reasonable is going to depend on your home and the temperature outdoors. We see a lot of homeowners fall into the trap of coming home and immediately turning their thermostat up to an unbelievably high temperature.

We get that you might think that turning your thermostat up as high as possible is going to help your home cool off faster, but in reality it’s only going to make your thermostat wear down faster. It’s always best to set your thermostat to a reasonable temperature and practice a little patience.

Take Advantage of Other Resources in Your Home

Do you have a ceiling fan at home? If the answer is yes, then you need to use it. That’s right, your ceiling fan is your ally in winter too. You can reverse the direction the fan blades rotate and circulate the warm air that naturally collects at the top of your room downward. Using your ceiling fan in conjunction with your heater helps lower your bills and boost your comfort.

Contact Switzerland Air today to schedule an appointment for your heating services. We’ll make sure that your heater performs to the best of its ability this winter.
