Is your AC ready for summer? This is a question homeowners all over the country should be asking themselves, but it’s even more important here, where “summer” can last 9 months or longer, pretty much.

Some of the noises that come from the electronics and appliances in your home can be easy to ignore. It’s also easy to deny anything is wrong, since fixing the issue can be a bigger nuisance than listening to it.

But there are certain noises that shouldn’t be ignored if they’re coming from your heating system. For instance, a rattle could be something benign, like a loose panel. But another possibility is that it’s a cracked heat exchanger making the sound, which is actually quite dangerous.

But, how does this happen?

Technician looking over a gas furnace with a flashlight before cleaning it.Obviously, we understand why you’d ask this. Not only do many homeowners believe—mistakenly so—that maintenance isn’t that important, but we live in Florida! We barely even use our heating systems, why schedule maintenance for them?

Well, simply put, because we do use them. Your heating system has an important job and you would likely be able to effectively use it for however brief a period you may need it, otherwise we doubt you’d be reading this blog post right now.
