Proactive Heating System Inspections and Maintenance

As a Texan you already know that, for the majority of the year, your heater will go unused. So when it does come time to turn on your heater or furnace during those cooler months, you might notice that your heater is making unusual noises; that when you finally turn on your heating system you aren’t getting warmer, or that if it does come on, one area of the house gets hot and other areas don’t.
