Fall Maintenance Checklist

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

Fall is in the air and sweater weather is upon us. As you prepare your house with fall decorations like signs, pumpkins, and, of course, autumn scented candles, you may want to consider putting a few other things on your fall to-do list. Follow along in our blog to learn more about what you should put on your fall maintenance checklist.

Debris-Free AC and Heating

As you think about turning off your air conditioner and opening those windows, don’t forget about cleaning your HVAC unit for wintertime. The weather may be getting cooler, but you sure don’t need a broken furnace over the winter. Debris such as dust and pests can build up in your ductwork. This type of debris can be hazardous to you and to your home. So, get your ducts cleaned out for the start of winter. The same goes for your air conditioning. Unwanted debris could clog coils and damage your AC.

Check Your Air Filters

It’s true, you will be opening your windows more as the weather gets cooler, but once the snow starts to hit the ground, it’s time to turn the heat on. Make sure you are changing your air filters regularly. Changing your air filter helps keep a cleaner home, helps your health, it improves your HVAC system, and produces fresh indoor air.

Air Duct Cleaning

Get your cleaning gloves ready because it’s time to shine those air ducts. Your ducts need a good cleaning because the amount of time you are spending at home inside will increase. It will also help you to save energy in the long run. An air duct cleaning will help combat allergies and asthma, and it will help fight off any other sicknesses. If you don’t think you can clean your air ducts yourself, the professionals at West AIR Heating & Cooling are here to help.

Schedule a Fall Maintenance Visit

As summer comes to an end and you start thinking about all the fun things you are going to do in the next coming months, don’t forget about your annual fall cleaning. Checking your air filters, cleaning debris, and air duct cleaning are some of the things to make sure to have on your fall maintenance checklist. Contact WestAIR Heating & Cooling for all your fall maintenance needs.

Recommended Thermostat Settings for Winter and Summer

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

It’s that time of year again where the weather can’t decide what temperature it wants to be. It can go from 80 degrees in the afternoon and drop down to 62 degrees at night. With all this weather confusion, it may be hard to figure out what your ideal in-home temperature should be. You want to be comfortable in your own home, but you also want to save money. WestAIR Heating & Cooling is here to tell you about the best recommended thermostat settings for winter and summer.

Summer Thermostat Settings

We may all be in denial that summer is almost over, but the last day is in fact September 22. According to AccuWeather, most September days will be warmer than 70 degrees. So don’t worry about the snow and cold yet! We have some summer cooling tips for you to use. For a normal thermostat setting, the universal guideline is 78 degrees. This will keep your home nice and cold, and it will keep your energy bill down. This temperature is recommended for only the times that you are home. When you aren’t home, you should turn your thermostat up about 10 degrees warmer than your normal cooling setting. This will help save energy.

Winter Thermostat Settings

Apples, hot chocolate, and sweater weather are just a few things to look forward to this fall and winter. As summer comes slowly to a close, we must start thinking about winter and how we will stay warm at an affordable price. Winter can be long and, at times, freezing cold. The ideal temperature for your house in the winter is around 68 degrees during the day. On the other hand, when heating your house for the night, you should lower it to 60 degrees. This will save homeowners between 5 and 10% on their utility bills each year.

A Smart Thermostat

Do you ever have that feeling that someone is watching you and taking note of every move you make? A smart thermostat does just that. In the long run, it will help you with energy consumption. Most smart thermostats can track when you are home and when you aren’t. It will kick in the moment it knows you are about to arrive home because it is constantly tracking you. If you forget to adjust your thermostat on your way out the door, it will automatically adapt for you. Some also have sensors that can detect the number of people in the room, the humidity, and much more.  

Settings that are Affordable and Comfortable

The comfortability of your home, in reality, is up to you. Whether you like it hot, cold, or even humid, the temperature you keep it at is what makes you feel most relaxed and at home and won’t hurt your budget.

If you feel like your heating and cooling bills are through the roof, then WestAIR Heating & Cooling knows just how to help you. Your home’s HVAC system is our number one priority. We are dedicated to delivering top-tier service to homes in the Twin Cities. Contact us today for all your air conditioning, heating, and thermostat needs.

Let’s Clear the Air: Benefits of Air Cleaners and Purifiers

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

Take a deep breath in. If you feel short-winded, pain in your chest, or maybe even a little ear or throat irritation, it may be time to think about purchasing an air cleaner and purifier. They help reduce allergies, lower the chance of getting an airborne disease, improve sleep, and so much more. Air purifiers make the air cleaner and healthier for you and your family. So, let’s clear the air. Follow along as WestAIR Heating & Cooling discusses the benefits of air cleaners and purifiers.

Health Benefits

Health is wealth in 2022. We all want to live to a ripe old age. Air quality can be a big factor to one’s health. Oftentimes there is more pollution, pet dander, and dust mites inside rather than outside a home. Air purifiers can help kick those pesky problems out the door. Of the many health benefits of air purifiers and cleaners, some of the more significant ones include:

  • Help lessen asthma attacks
  • Sanitize indoor air
  • Filter out harsh indoor chemicals
  • Protect your home from mold spores

In addition, air purifiers are also beneficial as tension and stress relivers. Research indicates that people who live in higher-polluted areas are more likely to experience stress and other health issues. Investing in an air purifier can help keep the air inside your home cleaner while the white noise can help you get better sleep.

Decreases Nasty Odors

PEW! What’s that smell?! You don’t want to welcome a guest into your home with unpleasant odor. A scented candle or diffuser may hide the smell but not forever. And neither method can make the air clean, fresh, or safe. The best way to rid your home of unwanted odors like smoke, food, or garbage is to purchase an air purifier and cleaner.

Skin Benefits

As the body’s largest organ, the skin also benefits from investing in an air cleaner and purifier. Let’s look at some of the ways in which air cleaners and purifiers help improve the health of your skin.

  • Cleaners and purifiers can help alleviate itchy, red, irritated patches.
  • Summer sun can lead to dehydration, which can cause dry, tight-feeling skin. Air cleaners and purifiers help hold moisture in the air, improving your skin’s hydration and elasticity.

At WestAIR, we want to help you and your family to experience cleaner air at home. Contact us to chat with one of our experts or to purchase an air cleaner for your home.

Benefits of a Mini-Split AC

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

We should never take the air conditioning for granted. It helps to cool us down on those hot summer days, it provides better air quality for us, and it even helps us sleep better. There is more than just one cooling system. In fact, there are  8 different types, but the ductless mini-split air conditioner may be the best option if you’re thinking about an upgrade. Keep reading to learn the benefits of a mini-split AC and why it might be the best choice for your home, warehouse office, or garage.

Environmentally Smart

In today’s world, everyone is trying to be environmentally smart, from buying locally grown food to using more ecofriendly products in their households. When you invest in a ductless mini-split, you are being more energy efficient and reducing consumption. Some forced air systems can often be uneconomical because the ductwork can have tears, gaps, and other issues causing cooling loss. 

No Ductwork Needed

Many older homes do not contain ductwork. This makes it nearly impossible to have central air in your household. Therefore, you may need mini-splits installed in your house. This may be seen as an advantage to some though. Ductwork can often become pricey and complex. When it comes to cooling and installing air into your older home, ductless mini-splits are the number one choice.

Budget Friendly

In today’s society, if you are trying to be frugal, we would definitely recommend having ductless mini-splits through-out your house. Mini-splits cost less than installing whole home ductwork. They also are energy efficient, and require less maintenance than your average window unit. You will typically find yourself paying between $4,000 and $6,000 to get a single head ductless mini-split installed. Multi head systems range from $6,000-$10,000 depending on the design and sizing. Looking for a company to install a ductless air conditioner in your house, garage, or warehouse office? Schedule a service with WestAIR Heating & Cooling today.

Health Conscious

The June flowers are still in bloom, so that means lots of itchy eyes, sneezing, and coughing. Ductless mini-splits lower your risk of breathing in contaminants in the air, help balance out humidity in the air, and there won’t be any ductwork toxins like pests, insect droppings, dust, and bacteria. Ductless mini-splits will transfer clean air directly in and out of your house.

Whether you’re working hard to fix your car in the garage or sending emails in your home office, you should be keeping cool, saving money, and breathing better air. Ductless mini-splits are effective, budget friendly, and high quality units. If you are looking to have one installed, contact our professionals at WestAIR heating & Cooling today.

Repair or Replace: 6 Signs You Need a New Air Conditioner

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

Certified HVAC Technician performing an inspection for signs it's time for a new air conditioner.

The weather is heating up here in Minnesota. Have you given your cooling system a test run yet? Doing so allows you to address any issues before the hot and humid summer days arrive. But how will you know if you need a repair or a replacement? Read on to learn about six signs you need a new air conditioner.

Frequent Repairs and Old Age

According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), central air conditioners typically last about 15-20 years. And while occasional repairs are to be expected, having to do so frequently means you likely need a replacement. If your AC is around 15 years old and/or needs multiple service calls during the cooling season, it may be time to forget the repair bills and invest in a new cooling system.

Strange Odors and/or Sounds

Your AC shouldn’t be silent, but be on alert for certain noises that point to a problem:

  • Loud grinding, squealing, or scraping noises could indicate a faulty belt, which can damage other parts if unaddressed.
  • Frequent cycling (system turning on/off) could be caused by an improperly sized unit, a leaky ventilation system, or issues with the evaporator coils.

Additionally, the air pushed out by the system should not offend your nostrils. Don’t ignore strange odors when your AC is on:

  • Burning smells may be due to burned-out wiring or other issues with the unit’s internal pieces, which could lead to an electrical fire.
  • Foul, rotten egg smells could indicate a gas leak that poses a serious health and safety hazard for you and your family.
  • Musty smells could mean moisture is escaping into your ductwork and creating health risks.

If you notice any of these issues, contact WestAIR ASAP to investigate and resolve the issue to keep your household safe.

Moisture Buildup On/Around Condenser Unit

Your AC will naturally produce some condensation, but liquids should never leak from the unit. Pooling water may be caused by a blocked or busted condensation tube and is a less serious issue. However, the refrigerant the system uses to cool the air is poisonous. Contact our expert HVAC technicians immediately if you notice any liquids on or around the condenser unit.

Excess Indoor Humidity

Speaking of moisture, a properly functioning cooling system should help maintain proper indoor humidity levels. If your home feels excessively humid, that’s a sign that your AC is failing and may need to be replaced.

Weak, Warm, and/or Uneven Air Distribution

Air conditioners should supply your entire home with cool, evenly distributed air. Warm air could be caused by a problem with the compressor or restricted airflow. If you notice uneven or weak air distribution from your vents, you may need to change/clean your filter or clean your ductwork to clear a blockage. You should schedule a professional inspection from an HVAC specialist to diagnose the exact cause and discuss the ideal solution to these problems.

Higher Energy Bills

Higher energy bills are to be expected as we increase the demand on our HVAC system during the cooling months. But if your bills seem to spike unreasonably, it’s likely that your AC isn’t operating efficiently and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Rely on WestAIR Heating & Cooling for AC Repair and Replacement

As we prepare for the hot and humid summer days ahead, now’s the time to ensure your AC is ready. Keep an eye out for these signs you need a new air conditioner when testing your system before the cooling season is in full swing. If you notice any issues, the local HVAC experts at WestAIR are here to help.

Benefits of UV Light Air Purification

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

Did you know that ultraviolet (UV) light technology has been used for disinfectant purposes for over a century? While not a novel concept, the technology has grown in popularity among homeowners seeking to improve indoor air quality (IAQ). Read on to learn more about the benefits of UV light air purification.

Reduced Allergen Presence & Improved Overall Air Quality

Working in conjunction with your current HVAC system, UV lights help eliminate odors and harmful airborne pathogens. This effectively reduces the presence of allergens and improves overall IAQ.

Removes Volatile Organic Compounds

Volatile Organic compounds (VOCs) pose a health and safety hazard if breathed in, especially with prolonged exposure. While naturally occurring, they’re also found in many cleaning and disinfectant solutions, aerosol sprays, and other common household products. UV lights target and eliminate VOCs to improve IAQ and help protect your family.

Kills Mold, Bacteria, and Viruses

UV lights produce UV rays that break through an organism’s cell wall and sufficiently damage or destroy its DNA. As a result, the organism is unable to reproduce and cause illness or irritate asthma or allergy sufferers. In addition to VOCs, these rays attack other contaminants like viruses, mold, and bacteria—including odor-causing bacteria.

Better Airflow Throughout System

The air filter works to trap contaminants before they can enter the HVAC system. However, over time, dust and other debris naturally collect in the ductwork and throughout the system, forcing it to work harder. UV lights clear these buildups, improving IAQ as well as the airflow of your system.

Increased HVAC Efficiency

As mentioned, UV lights work to remove debris buildup in ductwork, as well as your HVAC system’s pipes and cooling coils. They also help reduce moisture within the system, which can help prevent condensate drain line clogs. In the end, these factors improve airflow as well as overall efficiency, resulting in decreased energy costs.

Trust WestAIR Heating & Cooling to Help Clear the Air in Your Home

Considering how much time we spend inside our homes, indoor air quality plays a vital role in our health and safety. And with cooling season right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the benefits of UV light air purification with your HVAC system.

Get Smart About Your Home Comfort

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling


Your home is your sanctuary, and you want to be as comfortable as possible, right? We understand that, and now is the time to get smart about your home comfort. A programmable thermostat from WestAIR Heating & Cooling allows you to effortlessly stay cool or cozy all year round. Keep reading to learn more about these high-tech, user-friendly tools and how they can benefit your home.

Easy to Use

Maybe one of the biggest benefits of a programmable thermostat is that the device is simple to use, even if you aren’t incredibly tech-savvy. The instruction manual for most models walks you through the features and programming capabilities on the device’s touch screen, so everything is readily available and literally at your fingertips. Once you’ve programmed a setting, time, reminder, or update, you’ll get a recap and verification of the information to be sure what you’ve set is exactly what you want.

And many models are compatible with mobile devices and smart controls like Alexa or Google. You can check, change, set, or reset your thermostat settings on your phone or other gadget from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection. Or you can verbally adjust settings through your home’s network while sitting on the couch or lying in bed.

Enjoy Consistent Comfort

Gone are the days of your home feeling too cold in the winter or too hot in the summer. Better yet, with a programmable thermostat you don’t have to adjust for consistent comfort. You determine the ideal temperature for you and your family, and the smart thermostat does the heavy lifting by providing a steady flow of warm or cool air based on your schedule and needs.

Improve HVAC Efficiency

Installing a smart thermostat with your current HVAC system will help it run more efficiently. The unit will run only when needed based on your programmed settings, helping to reduce the workload and added wear and tear on the system. You’ll save energy while helping to extend the life of your HVAC system.

Energy Savings = Cost Savings

While working with your HVAC system to save energy, a programmable thermostat also saves you money. And with energy bills on the rise, there’s no smarter time to invest in one of these devices. You can set your smart thermostat to fit your home comfort needs based on your schedule. Then, set the temp slightly lower at night or when you’re away. Every degree makes a difference.

Invest in Your Home Comfort

No matter the season, your home comfort matters. Investing in a programmable thermostat is an easy and efficient way to ensure you and your family are comfortable all year long. These smart-yet-simple devices put all the control in your hands while helping you save time, energy, and money. Want to learn more? Our knowledgeable team at WestAIR Heating & Cooling can help.

Breathe Cleaner Air at Home

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling


In a previous blog, we discussed the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ), especially as it relates to your family’s comfort and health. With the cold winter temperatures keeping people inside, we wanted to revisit the topic and offer tips to breathe cleaner air at home.

Air Quality & Your Family’s Health

A lot of factors play a role in your overall health. One of the biggest is the air inside your home. This is particularly true right now, with more people spending time indoors to stay warm.

If your home has low-grade IAQ, you and your family may feel the effects. Poor air quality contributes to conditions including headaches, fatigue, skin irritation, coughs, and sore throats. Air pollutants can also trigger or worsen allergies and asthma.

Focus on Filters

Checking and changing air filters is a simple task you can perform to help ensure you and your family breathe cleaner air at home. Filters catch and remove contaminants as air passes through your HVAC system each time the unit runs.

Each month, check the filter to see whether it needs to be replaced. If you have animals, for instance, you may need to change the filter more often than in a pet-free home. Dirty filters can contribute to reduced air quality while putting undue stress on your heating and cooling unit.

Double-Check Ductwork

Your home’s ductwork is the system through which air passes from the HVAC unit to heat or cool each room, depending on the season. Dirty ducts can also distribute contaminants from one room to another as particles collect within the ductwork over time.

To ensure your ducts are free of debris and harmful pollutants, schedule regular duct cleaning maintenance from a professional and trusted team. Clean ducts will help keep the air within the home cleaner and safer for your family.

Manage Moisture

Moisture also contributes to the quality of your home’s indoor air. Help control that moisture with a whole-house humidifier.

Winter air is extremely dry and can cause sore throats or scratchy skin. A humidifier adds enough moisture to make your indoor air more comfortable to breathe. Adding a bit of moisture also helps the air stay warmer, allowing you to turn down your thermostat a few degrees in the winter.

Clear Out Contaminants

Another way to rid your home’s indoor air of harmful pollutants is with an air purifier. Working with your existing HVAC system and ductwork, an air purifier uses ultraviolet (UV) light technology to remove bacteria, viruses, mold, volatile organic compounds, and even odors.

The BreatheCLEAN UV purifiers from WestAIR Heating & Cooling offer an easy installation process and a number of health benefits, including:

  • UV bulbs eliminate almost all harmful organisms
  • Asthma and allergy relief
  • Nonstop protection from viruses, mold, and bacteria

The knowledgeable and experienced professionals at WestAIR Heating & Cooling want to ensure your home safety and comfort. Contact us today to learn more about our indoor air quality products and services and how they can help you and your family breathe cleaner air at home.

The Value of Keeping Ducts Clean

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling


Several years ago, we wrote about a topic that affects virtually every homeowner – dryer vents. Now, we want to revisit this idea to reiterate the value of keeping ducts clean. We also want to offer some safety tips along with signs that your ducts need attention. Keep reading to learn more.

Stay Safe from Harm

You likely clean the clothes dryer lint catch before or after drying a load of clothes. That trap can sometimes miss a piece of lint here or there, and those pieces may end up in the dryer vent hose. If too many of those small pieces collect over time, the vent can become clogged, forcing potentially dangerous fumes back into your home.

Additionally, dryer lint is flammable. And clothes dryers use warm – often hot – air to dry a load of laundry. In some instances, flammable lint mixed with hot air can be an unsafe combination. Each year, clothes dryer fires cause death, injury, and millions of dollars in property loss or damage. Failure to keep up with dryer maintenance is the leading cause of clothes dryer fires. As such, keeping the vent clear of obstruction dramatically helps keep you and your family safe.

Better For Your Appliances

A clogged dryer vent slows the drying process and makes the unit work harder and longer to get clothes dry. This creates undue stress and added wear-and-tear on the dryer itself. Keeping the vent clean and clear helps improve function and allows the dryer to run more efficiently. You’ll save money on energy bills and help cut down on repairs.

Watch for These Signs

There are some signs to watch for that could indicate it’s time to clean the dryer vent – or call on a team of professionals to get the job done. Pay attention to things like:

  • Longer dry times. If the damp, hot air can’t escape due to a clogged vent, you’ll notice it takes longer to dry your clothes. This creates unnecessary wear on the dryer as well as the laundry.
  • Something smells like it’s burning. Lint that has collected in the vent can start a dryer fire. If you smell something burning, turn off the unit and have a trusted service technician inspect the vent and the dryer.
  • Materials are hot. Clothes that come fresh from the dryer should be warm and dry – but not hot. Hot materials mean the dryer isn’t venting properly. Have the dryer looked at and the vent cleaned to help prevent overheating or a fire.
  • The vent cover stays closed. When the dryer is running, the exterior vent cover should open to allow hot air to escape. If the vent cover stays closed, the hose may be clogged with dryer lint.

Keep Ducts Clean with WestAIR

When it comes to safety, the value of keeping ducts clean cannot be overstated. These are simple ways to be on alert to help protect your home, your family, and your appliances. If you notice any of these signs, schedule an appointment with the professionals at WestAIR Heating & Cooling. Our duct cleaning service provides removal of dirt and other debris from your home’s ductwork, delivering peace of mind and cleaner air. Contact us today to learn more.

Experience the Benefits of a Humidifier

Posted on by WestAIR Heating & Cooling

As we sit back, sigh, and accept that winter has once again returned, we also realize the damage Minnesota winters can do to both our homes and our bodies. But with the right tips and tricks, you can conquer the consequences of the dry winter air. Continue reading our blog to learn about the top benefits of a humidifier and why your home needs one.

Hydrate Your Skin

When your home has proper humidity levels, it keeps your largest organ, your skin, hydrated. Although many dermatologists will suggest thick creams and gels to keep your skin hydrated, those expensive topicals will only act as a temporary band-aid. Without the proper amount of moisture in the air, it will continue to dry out your skin and cause itchiness, peeling lips, and eye irritation.

Stay Healthy

The cold winter doesn’t only take a toll on your skin, it also increases the distance germs travel, in turn, increasing the likelihood of you contracting an airborne illness. Recently, studies have shown that higher humidity levels are proving to have a dramatic effect on most airborne viruses, making their traveling distance much shorter because of the added weight.

Protect Your Home

Dry air pulls moisture from hardwood floors, furniture, and even the general frame of your home, making it contract and shift. As the frame shifts, doors may be hard to open and close and gaps may form between the ceiling, walls, windows, and door frames.

Hardwood floors specifically take a hit when the air becomes dramatically dry. When the wood is faced with extreme circumstances, it can lead to permanent damage. The boards themselves may split and crack in the center or at the ends, damaging the finish. Unfortunately, once the finish is compromised, the boards will have to be replaced.

Save Money

Not only will your home benefit from more humid air, but so will your bank account. The more humid the air, the more warmth it can hold. By using a humidifier, you’ll be able to set your thermostat lower and give your heating system a break. Although we have focused on the benefits of humid air, be careful: excess moisture may cause mold, bacteria, and mildew growth in poorly ventilated areas of your home.

To ensure these many benefits, aim for a humidity level somewhere between 35 and 55 percent. WestAIR Heating & Cooling offers whole-house humidifiers that will keep your house comfortable, even in winter. Our humidifiers will automatically work with your HVAC system to distribute moisture throughout your house. Contact us today to start living your most comfortable life. We are happy to discuss your heating and indoor air quality options.
