When those Texas temperatures start to drop below 90 every day, we all start to look forward to fall! With pumpkins and holiday decor brightening our doorsteps, it’s easy to forget that fall is the perfect time for something else: heater maintenance!
Service Wizard knows that a heater tune-up doesn’t sound nearly as exciting as autumn desserts and crisp, cool weather, but it’s even more important! If you want to stay comfortable through everything that Texas has to throw at us this winter, it’s time to schedule your heater tune-up!
What Is A Tune-Up?
Tune-ups (or preventative maintenance) are simply appointments with an HVAC technician to ensure your air conditioning and heating are ready to run dependably through their respective seasons. Contrary to popular belief, this is not a glance at your unit and a thumbs up.
Our technicians at Service Wizard complete a long checklist of items during your maintenance visit, assessing and grading each mechanism based on performance. We then provide a detailed report on what we find, including recommended repairs and changes to make sure your system doesn’t break down in the future. If we can, we even replace worn-out parts or make simple repairs that same day.
When Do You Schedule A Tune-Up?
Our team is ready to perform HVAC maintenance any month of the year! In fact, a tune-up performed at any time throughout the year is far better than no tune-up at all. That said, maintenance is most effective when it’s performed before the system is needed the most.
For example, an AC tune-up is most effective in the spring before summer hits in full force. Those cold fronts and hard freezes are just around the corner for Austin. This means that fall is the best time to schedule your heater tune-up appointment. If you haven’t made your heater maintenance appointment yet this year, today’s the day!
Does Heater Maintenance Actually Do Anything?
Yes! Service Wizard is not here to sell you something you don’t really need — just ask the Austin community! Many of your friends and neighbors are probably already experiencing the awesome benefits of heater maintenance:
- Quicker heating in your home
- Lower risk of repairs in the middle of winter
- Accurate temperature control
- Higher efficiency and lower bills
- Longer lasting heater
All of these perks benefit you directly. From comfort to financial savings, there are no downsides to investing in your heater this year. Just like when you put oil in your car or take it to get inspected, it only ever provides more security that your vehicle will perform when you need it to. That’s the same confidence you should have in your heater — especially when a surprise winter blackout could be looming!

You may be tempted to wait another year to remember to make your maintenance appointment, but every year that passes could make a difference in your heater’s performance.
