It’s that time of year again!

Fall HVAC maintenance is of utmost importance to ensure the smooth and efficient functioning of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system during the colder months. Regular maintenance not only enhances the longevity of your HVAC unit but also ensures optimal performance, energy efficiency, and indoor comfort for you and your family. Here are some key reasons why fall HVAC maintenance is essential:

  1. Energy Efficiency: A well-maintained HVAC system operates more efficiently, saving energy and reducing utility bills. Fall maintenance typically involves cleaning or replacing air filters, inspecting and cleaning the heating system, and checking thermostat settings. These tasks optimize the system’s performance, helping it consume less energy and operate at its peak efficiency.
  2. Prevention of Breakdowns: Fall HVAC maintenance allows technicians to identify and address potential issues before they turn into costly breakdowns. Regular inspections can detect problems such as worn-out components, loose electrical connections, or faulty thermostats. Resolving these issues in advance can prevent sudden system failures and ensure uninterrupted heating during the colder months.
  3. Improved Indoor Air Quality: HVAC maintenance includes cleaning or replacing air filters, which play a crucial role in maintaining good indoor air quality. Dirty or clogged filters can lead to poor air circulation, reduced efficiency, and a buildup of allergens or pollutants in the air. By replacing filters, cleaning ducts, and ensuring proper airflow, fall maintenance promotes healthier indoor air quality for you and your family.
  4. Extended System Lifespan: Regular maintenance helps prolong the lifespan of your HVAC system. By keeping the system clean, lubricated, and free from excessive wear and tear, you can prevent premature failures and the need for costly replacements. Taking care of your HVAC unit through timely fall maintenance can save you money in the long run by avoiding major repairs or premature system replacements.
  5. Warranty Compliance: Many HVAC manufacturers require regular maintenance for warranty coverage. Neglecting scheduled maintenance can void your warranty, leaving you responsible for the full cost of any necessary repairs or replacements. By performing fall HVAC maintenance according to the manufacturer’s guidelines, you not only keep your system in top shape but also ensure warranty compliance and potential cost savings.

In conclusion, fall HVAC maintenance is crucial for maintaining energy efficiency, preventing breakdowns, improving indoor air quality, extending system lifespan, and complying with warranty requirements. By investing in regular maintenance, you can enjoy a comfortable and worry-free winter season while maximizing the performance and longevity of your HVAC system.

How often should I schedule a maintenance?

This weather has us thinking about fall, while we have a few weeks of summer left it is time to think about scheduling your fall maintenance. A frequent question that I hear is how often should I schedule a maintenance? Well, to answer that question there is a few things to think about. Do you have an indoor and outdoor unit? For example, Heat pump and air handler? AC and Furnace? Or do you only have a Furnace? We like to recommend that you maintain your heating equipment going into the fall to prepare for the cooler nights and that gives you time to make any repairs needed before the harsher winter weather arrives. Then in the spring time comes and it starts to warm up, that’s when we recommend doing a maintenance on the the cooling system. Maybe you don’t want to schedule two appointments a year, that’s ok, we also do full maintenance’s where we maintain both indoor and outdoor units at the same time annually. Call us and we can set you up with a reoccurring appointment to keep your system in tip top shape.

Fall Maintenance

It’s the time of year again when the leaves start changing color and we see the words pumpkin spice everywhere we turn. Here’s some things to ponder while transitioning your home into the cooler weather.

What you should do regularly to ensure that your system is performing at peak operating levels.

  • Filter- Whether it’s winter, spring, summer or fall- regular filter changes are the best way to keep your equipment running properly and keep your air as clean as possible. At the very least, you should change your filter once before the cooling season (Spring) and the heating season (Fall).
  • Leaves- If you have a heat pump or air conditioner, make sure to keep leaves and other debris away from the outdoor component to maintain proper airflow. Improper airflow can result in decreased performance and can cause the system to have potential breakdowns.
  • Thermostat- Fall can be a roller coaster of a season. To decrease utility bills you should stick to your programmed comfort schedule, or in the case that you do not have a programmable thermostat you should set the temperature and forget about it. Constantly fidgeting with the thermostat can result in a higher utility bill.
  • Cleaning indoors- Fall is another allergy season. It can be tempting to open all the windows and let in some cooler air. Clean indoors to make sure dust and allergens from outdoors aren’t settling on your surfaces and lowering indoor air quality.
  • Maintenance- Make sure to schedule an annual or semi-annual maintenance with Experts Heating and Cooling, Inc. This is the best way to ensure proper performance levels throughout winter.

Here are things Experts will do during a Fall furnace preventative maintenance appointment.

  • Clean- We will clean the burner, heat exchanger, and any other component if necessary.
  • Inspect- We will make sure the venting system is working properly.
  • Check- Our guys will look over the whole furnace to make sure there aren’t any problems, aren’t any rusty spots or leaks, and make sure the electric system is in tip-top shape.

Something to remember, HVAC systems (gas furnaces particularly) require the skills of a professional for proper maintenance, installation and repairs.

Now let’s cozy up to fall with our brisk mornings, yummy smelling candles and pumpkin spice lattes.

How ductless systems work

Ductless systems, also known as ductless heat pumps or ductless mini-splits, are highly efficient easily installed primary heating and cooling systems for electrically heated homes. They’re safe, durable and quiet, and they heat rooms evenly at a fraction of the cost of baseboard, wall and ceiling heat or electric furnaces.

Ductless systems utilize heat pump technology to distribute warm or cool air more quietly and efficiently than traditional electric heaters. With three main components (outdoor unit, indoor wall-mounted unit, remote control), ductless heat pumps are easily installed by a professional in less than a day and can reduce your electric heating costs by 25% -50% while keeping you comfortable all year long.

Ductless How it works

Ductless heating and cooling systems are reversible, two-way heat pump that simply take heat energy from on place and move it to another by compressing and expanding refrigerant. There are three main components:

1. Outdoor unit: connects to the indoor unit by a small bundle of cables, including a refrigerant line. The unit is placed outside of the home on ground level.

2. Indoor unit: mounted on a centrally located wall. One indoor head is enough to heat and cool an average-sized Northwest home.

3. Remote control: allows occupants to adjust the settings for maximum efficiency, comfort and control.

Installation is quick and easy. There is no need for expensive, invasive and often leaky duct work: A small 3-inch hold hidden behind the indoor unit is all that’s needed to connect it to the outdoor unit. Ductless systems do best when they are installed in a central location in your home. They work with your existing heating system to ensure that bedrooms and bathrooms are the perfect temperature.

Other types of heat pump include ducted heat pumps, ducted mini-splits and central air handler mini-splits. Talk to your electric utility or contractor to learn more about which type of heat pump would be best for your home.
