Florida Heating FAQ

Florida is known for our sunny skies and warm weather—with such a mild climate, it’s easy to think it can be beach weather all year long! We get many questions regarding heating in Florida, so our heating experts sat down to answer some of the most frequently asked.

Do you need heat in Florida?

Like many places, Florida typically has warm weather, but we can still get hit with cold fronts. The average low temperature in January is around 49 degrees, but record lows in Brandon, FL, have dipped as far as 15°F! Having heat during the cooler months of the year will keep your home comfortable, no matter what weather we’re dealing with.

When should I turn on the heat in Florida?

This is really up to your comfort! A good rule of thumb is to wait for temperatures to dip below 68 degrees. Try some of these natural heating methods to warm your home and wait a little longer to turn on the heat:

  • Close your curtains at night to avoid losing heat through drafty windows.
  • Invest in rugs! They’ll help insulate your floor as well as reduce noise throughout your home.
  • Switch the direction on your ceiling fan to help redistribute heat. During fall and winter, your fan should spin clockwise to help pull cool air up and push warm air down from the ceiling.

When is it time to replace my heater?

There are many signs of a failing heating system, including:

  • Frequent heating problems
  • Inconsistent heating
  • Strange noises
  • Unusual odors
  • Humidity issues
  • Signs of physical damage
  • And more

With proper care and regular maintenance, your heating system can be expected to last around 10-15 years before you need to consider investing in a replacement. Call Fairway Heating & Cooling LLC at (813) 519-6620 to talk to a member of our team about our heating services this winter!
