When the time changes, so does your need for heating.

This past Sunday, you gained one hour. You won’t lose it again until 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 10, 2019. That means less daylight and sunshine.

It is a fact that after Daylight Savings Time ends, use of the furnace and other heating systems grows. Makes sense. With less daytime hours and sunshine, the cooler temperatures set in.

The cost of heating a home in El Paso in the colder months can tempt some to choose more dangerous methods of staying warm. Using an oven or space heaters as an alternative heating source often results in a fire. Don’t do this. Instead, make sure your heating system is in good working condition by having it checked on.

Fall is the perfect time for a furnace inspection. Fall heating system maintenance keeps furnaces (or other heaters) in the best shape for efficient operation (and less energy use). Not to mention, furnace inspections keep your family safe because it checks for unforeseen problems that may cause carbon monoxide leaks or other potentially dangerous issues.

If you stay on top of the preventive maintenance for your heating system, you won’t have to use the stove or space heaters to heat the house.
