Improve Indoor Air Quality with Duct Cleaning

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

Do you or family members suffer from allergies or asthma? The accumulation of dust, dirt and other pollutants can pose a threat for everyone that breathes the air. Airborne contaminants include dust mites, fungi, germs and mold. Pollutants are drawn into the heating and air conditioning ducts through the return air registers.

You may want to have your ducts cleaned if you notice an excess of dust behind your return air grills or have had a remodel/construction project completed recently.

Duct cleaning of your air duct system can make a difference in your Indoor Air Quality and can cut your energy costs by increasing the efficiency of your system.

It is recommended that you have your ducts cleaned once every other year.  Specials are available if you schedule your cleaning with other furnace or Indoor Air Quality services. Call us today and schedule a duct cleaning this Fall.

Dryer Vents

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

Has it ever seemed like it takes forever for your clothes to dry?? You might be thinking your dryer is just getting old and needs to be replaced. Why spend all that money if you really don’t need to. The simple solution is to have your dryer vent and ducts cleaned. This will help with quicker drying times and save you money on your electric bill when it only takes 30 minutes vs. 60 minutes to dry.

Dirty dryer vents are also a fire hazard. If they become plugged up the dryer becomes hotter and increases the chance for a fire to start within the vents.  Something like this could very well happen while no one is home.

It is recommended that you clean dryer vents once a year.  Discounts are available if you schedule your cleaning with other furnace and duct cleaning services. Save money and reduce your risks of a fire. Call us today and schedule a dryer vent cleaning before it’s too late.

Repair or Replace?

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

Have you ever weighed the options whether to repair or replace? There are various tips that can help you when making your final decision.

Typically a service call will be enough, but when your bill for repair costs exceeds $400 it’s probably time to consider replacement. A few other indicators that it may be time to replace are if:

  • Utility costs become too high.
  • Equipment is 15+ years old, this includes: furnace, a/c, condenser and coil.
  • You plan on living in your home for more than 2 years.
  • Efficiency ratings are out-of- date. We have put together an efficiency ratings chart to help you.

How to lower your cooling costs this summer?

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

Here at WestAIR we provide the quality service you expect, inside your home and out. There are three simple things that you can do in your home without having to call a technician.

  1. Keep the Sun Out: Bright afternoon sunlight that shines through your windows can increase your costs up to 30 percent. Two options that you can consider are: to either place light-reflective film on them or close blinds and curtains at different times of the day depending on where the most light/heat is coming in.
  2. Analyze Your Thermostat Settings: During the three main summer months, cooling costs can contribute to 50 percent or more of your total utility costs. Consider keeping your thermostat at 77 degrees instead of 70 degrees. This can only help you save money.
  3. Furnace Filters: Remember to change your furnace filter monthly (even in the summer) to maintain the efficiency of your furnace AND air conditioner.

These are just three simple things that you can do today to help save money!!
