You may not think of winter as a “rough” time for weather in the Tampa Bay Area. The mild winters here are one of the reasons we’re a major vacation destination. But mild doesn’t mean we never run into chilly days. Our homes need to have effective heating systems we can trust to come on when we need them, and not to waste money when they run.
This is why we recommend you schedule HVAC maintenance in the fall to prepare your heating system and to ensure the ventilation system is also in good shape. If you have a heat pump, this is especially important: a heat pump works all year round, and after a summer of handling the heat in your home, it might not be in the best shape to handle cool weather. A heat pump must have bi-annual maintenance service to keep it in great shape.
