Winter Is Coming: Test Your Heater


Valerie Johannsen People & Brand Manager

Autumn is officially here, which means it’s time to put away the shorts and tank tops and start thinking about how you’re going to prepare for the winter months. Having a game plan in place before the icy cold weather arrives will help prolong the life of your heating system, ensuring maximum efficiency.

You don’t want to be that person who finds out that your heating system doesn’t work when the cold weather hits. Now is the time to test it and make sure it is all ready to work when winter comes. It’ll be here before you know it. The best thing you can do is to simply start up your heating system. Knowing if it will turn on or not is the first step. Be proactive and think ahead. Nobody wants to have heating problems on the coldest days of the year.

People call us sometimes with problems that have very simple fixes, and they end up paying close to $100 for the trip charge and small service. Before you go ahead and call us because your heater isn’t turning on, check the thermostat to make sure it is at the right temperature setting and make sure there are no electrical shorts or loose wires and that the breaker switch is on. Your problem could have a simple solution, but you could also have a damaged part that needs replacing or a faulty component that needs repair.

If your circuit breakers are on and your thermostat is at the right setting, but it is still not working, then call the experts at Service Legends to diagnose your problem. We will do a full system check to make sure you have a safe and efficient machine creating heat and comfort for you and your family this winter.

With Des Moines winters dipping into near-polar temperatures, don’t wait until the snow is falling to make sure you have heat.
