If you have lived in San Antonio, Texas for an entire year at any point in your life, you know that the climate can be tricky. During the warmest months, June through August, temperatures easily reach the triple digits time and time again. On the other hand there are months, especially January and March, when temperatures drop quite a bit. It’s important to have your heating system tuned-up and running efficiently during this time of year. Generally speaking, January and February are the two coldest months of the year in San Antonio.
In February, for example, the average high is 67 degrees with an average low of 44 degrees. While this can be perfect weather on some days, slight fluctuations can make it difficult to stay comfortable. During the month of February in San Antonio, it is often times too cold for the air conditioner but too warm for the furnace.
Imagine this: you turn the furnace on at night, knowing that the temperatures are going to be in the 40’s and you don’t want to wake up cold. While this is all well in good, you have to worry about afternoon temperatures the next day rising to 70 and sweating you out of your home. Sure, you can turn your furnace and AC on and off as you please but this can be a pain in the neck. Not to mention the fact that it is not always the best practice in terms of maintaining your HVAC system.
During these times of the year, when it is too cool for the AC and too hot for the heat, you should be paying close attention to the efficiency of the HVAC system in your home and/or office. The AC, for instance, may not be working as hard because the temperatures are not as high as they will be in the summer, however, regularly turning it on and off can take its toll.
If you are worried about your HVAC system acting up during this time of the year, contact the professionals at Champion AC to take a closer look. This will give you peace of mind as the weather continues to swing from one extreme to the next.
