Carbon Monoxide Safety

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, tasteless and odorless gas that can be extremely toxic at high levels. It can be emitted from a number of different household appliances that burn fossil fuels. To ensure that you and your family are safe there are two big steps that should be taken for complete protection. First you should install a CO detector. This is just as important as a smoke detector, but senses a different substance. With the installation you should be sure to check it monthly to ensure that the alarm is working properly. The second thing that should be done is have one of WestAIRs qualified technicians come and inspect your home heating system at least once every year. Call to schedule a complete check and clean of your heating system.

AC Tune Ups & Tips

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

Tune-up tips boil down to three basic components: longer equipment life, lower costs and more energy efficient. Spring is the perfect time for a tune up. Let our trained technicians at WestAIR inspect and clean your heating and cooling system and identify any potential problems it may have. Keeping the system clean and up to date will prevent costly future breakdowns. The regular maintenance extends the life of your equipment for more savings and avoiding replacement. An efficiently running system also lowers energy costs!

We also offer a low-cost Planned Service and Maintenance Agreement. Under the Service-Maintenance plan we remind you when it’s time for a tune up. Our office assistants call you and schedule a time that works best for you for our technicians to come out and tune-up your system.  Don’t wait until summer, that may be too late.

Allergies and Air Cleaners

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

With spring here early and being chased away by summer weather, allergy season has jumped out sooner than expected. You may not realize it, but indoor air may be significantly more polluted than outdoor air. In this case of pollution due to pollen, dust, pet dander and mold. If anyone in your family suffers from allergies in the spring or even anytime of the year, ask yourself these questions…

  • Do I turn my thermostat to the ON position when cleaning such as vacuuming and/or dusting? (If not then next time remember this crucial step. This way the air will be circulated and cleaned through your systems filter)
  • When was the last time I replaced my air filter?
    (Standard filters should be changed every month, Air Cleaner filters once or twice a year. Call us or order a new one on our website under the Buy Filters tab)
  • Are any of the vents closed or blocked in my home? (If yes then this may be the cause of allergies from build up. Leave them open at all times, closed vents can also lead to compressor failure)
  • Do I have a High Efficiency Air Cleaner installed in my home? (If not, possibly consider the benefits and options, call for pricing and installation)
  • When was the last time my system had a tune up? (Recommended annually after the first three years in service. Now is the time to schedule)
