It seems like Heat Miser is winning the weather battle this winter in south Texas.
Whom, you ask? He’s a flame-haired, hot-weather-loving personality from the 1970s-era stop motion animation film, “The Year Without Santa Claus.” The jolly holiday adventure brings the main characters to meet the Miser brothers — Heat Miser and Snow Miser — who bump heads over their desire to control the weather. Eventually, Mother Nature steps in and helps the bickering brothers reach a compromise. After a little song and dance, of course.
Back in south Texas, with the sunny 60s and 70s we’ve been having, it’s pretty clear which Miser brother is taking the lead. But this doesn’t mean you should forget about your home’s heating system anytime soon.
Even though you might not need to use your heater too much right now, this warm spell won’t last forever. Regardless of whether you find yourself turning on the heat next week or in a month’s time, you’ll want to make sure your furnace is ready when you are.
For this reason, it’s essential to have a routine heater safety inspection, even in the mildest of winters. Proactive heater maintenance can make sure there are no gas leaks, carbon monoxide issues or other risks to your home and your safety.
This is also a particular concern if your home has foam insulation. Since your systems aren’t running much, you may soon start experiencing high humidity and other comfort issues indoors. With routine maintenance, you’ll know that you have a fully working dehumidification system in place to control that excess moisture and eliminate any uncomfortable hot spots inside your home.
For homeowners in the San Antonio area, Tiger Services is close by and ready to help. You might have seen our Orange Tiger vans around town, helping your neighbors with everything from routine maintenance to emergency system repairs.
Our goal is to help you avoid a system breakdown on a frosty day, once Snow Miser takes the lead and pushes us into chilly temperatures. (As he says, “I never want to know a day that’s over 40 degrees. I’d rather have it 30, 20, 10, 5 and watch it freeze!”)
However, we know it’s easy to forget to take care of your heating system, especially when it’s balmy outside. That’s why we created our Advanced Maintenance Plan (AMP). Homeowners who sign up are booked in for preventative maintenance twice a year, plus benefits like 15% off repair services, same-day responses, doubled service warranties and much more.
