Does My Furnace Need Summer Maintenance?

May 8, 2021 | Blog

Maintaining your heater during the summer seems like a counterintuitive practice – especially when you are more worried about how your air conditioner is going to perform! However, the heating and cooling components of your HVAC system do not operate independently of one another. This means your furnace maintenance can affect your heating and your cooling throughout the year.

My Guy Heating & Air encourages you to schedule seasonal HVAC maintenance, but we also want you to know why your AC and heater are equally important. Keep reading to learn how having your heater tuned up in the summer can benefit you. 

Benefits Of Heater Tune-Ups In The Summer

First and foremost, a heater or AC tune-up at any time of the year is better than not at all. Maintenance appointments are extremely important to the efficiency of your unit, so make sure to schedule your excellent service during the year. However, there are some special reasons why it’s best to service your heater at specific times of the year. 

Seasonal Changes

The best way to ensure your HVAC system is ready to combat either the heat or the cold is to tune it up in the opposite season. For example, we encourage you to make a maintenance appointment for your AC during the winter or spring so that you are completely ready for the heat when it hits.

If you follow this rule, your AC should be tuned and ready to go far before summer. Once summer hits, it’s already time to start thinking about your heater health for the upcoming fall and winter months.


Unfortunately, many homeowners do not follow the opposite season guidelines, so AC services are more popular in the summer. If you can schedule a heating appointment in the summer, you’ll likely have parts and service more readily available to you than if you try to fight the other homeowners who wait until winter to check on their heaters. 

In the event that your heater needs repairs or even replacement, this will give you ample time to receive great repairs or choose and install the best furnace unit. You always want to avoid emergency repairs or replacements if possible, and our technicians can help make that happen.

Post High Use

When the winter weather starts to turn warmer and you finally use your AC more than your heater, you may forget that you have been demanding heat from your system all winter. This is the perfect time to get it checked out to make sure it will be ready for next season’s heating demands. Your heater could even have undetected repairs like a cracked heat exchanger that could pose safety risks to your home. 

Heat Pumps

If your warm air is delivered by a heat pump, then your cooling and heating system are the same thing. In the summer, heat pumps reverse their process to cool instead of warm the air. This is just another great reason why heating maintenance could help your cooling process be more efficient and effective.

Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

The best! Jared came to our house and was friendly, professional and fixed our heaters (that two other previous companies could not fix)! I couldn’t believe they had all 5 Star reviews and even joked with Jared (and Kay) about it. Now I understand why. Don’t take a chance with anyone else. You found the best here. Thanks again Jared!
