The heating season will begin soon in Central California.

To get superior service on your heating system, look to Shaw’s Air Conditioning in Fresno, CA to tackle the job.
Do a test run: You want to avoid a nasty surprise when you switch on your heater for the first time. Before you actually need your heater to work for you, turn it on for a test run. Look for any signs of possible trouble: odd noises, strange smells, leaks. Get expert help right away if anything serious or unexpected occurs. And if your heater won’t turn on at all… now is definitely the time to find out about it and get it repaired.
Change air filters: It’s likely you have a furnace in your home—they’ve been the most popular residential heating choice for many years. Before you start running it for the season, swap out its old air filter for a clean one. A debris-clogged filter will lessen your unit’s heating power and can cause numerous other problems that lead to serious damage to the internal components. Make sure you continue changing the filter once a month throughout the heating season.
Schedule preventive maintenance: Your heater needs professional attention to catch problems you might otherwise miss. An HVAC technician will not only detect issues that could lead to costly repairs or breakdowns, but will also give your system a thorough tune-up, which includes cleaning, adjustments, connection tightening, and safety and airflow tests. A maintenance check-up is the best way to give you confidence in your heater during the winter.
