Do you live in Dallas and want to be everyone’s hero this winter? Texas had a cold winter last year, and we anticipate another frigid winter this year. How can you help? As an HVAC technician, you can ensure Dallas residents are comfortable in their homes and businesses as the cold winter descends on Dallas.
When is it Coldest in Texas?
The cool season in Texas lasts for three months, from November to February. Texas’s coldest month of the year is January, and temperatures can average below 36 degrees Fahrenheit. The Texas grid is powered by a lone source of electricity, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). This means when energy usage spikes in the winter, the ERCOT is one of the only energy sources, and Texas can’t count on states in the region to supplement energy. A lack of energy can cause blackouts and limited energy reserves. So, what is the solution to this problem? HVAC systems.
Why are HVAC Systems Important?
Energy-efficient HVAC systems help keep people warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Nothing is more critical to Dallas residents than their HVAC systems. Before a Dallas summer, HVAC technicians must check air conditioning systems, clean out ventilation systems, and ensure a/c units are properly maintained. On the other hand, before the winter descends on Texas, HVAC technicians will be needed to light pilot lights check to make sure water heaters are working correctly and that thermostats can help control the temperature inside residential and commercial structures. So, how do you become a Dallas hero?
