Routine Maintenance: Long-Term Care for a Hard-Working HVAC System

 

On an average day in Oregon, you never know what the weather will bring!

On an average day in Oregon, you never know what the weather will bring!

It is mid-June, and the first day of summer is literally hours away, but here in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, the sunny weather we usually expect at this time of year has been interrupted by periods of gloomy skies and chilly rain. In fact, in the time it took to write this paragraph the weather changed from warm, clear blue skies to driving rain and back again — all in a span of five minutes!

The unpredictable weather that comes with the changing of the seasons can put us in front of our thermostats a lot, sometimes prompting us to manually adjust our temperature settings multiple times in the span of just a few days. At moments like this, think about how hard your system works to keep you comfortable! Whether you expect your system to be working hard in heating or cooling mode, it is good to be sure that everything is working properly in order to reduce the chance of unpleasant surprises on a particularly hot or chilly day.

In the same way that a car needs regular oil changes and tune ups to continue operating properly, your HVAC system is comprised of moving mechanical and electrical parts that can wear or break down over time and continued use, and can benefit from routine maintenance services. Many major repairs are related to the excessive wear or failure of a minor component, and can be avoided when detected during a routine maintenance service.

If you want to turn your HVAC maintenance into a long-term investment, you may want to consider purchasing a prepaid maintenance plan from a licensed mechanical contractor like Home Comfort. Our maintenance plans offer regular maintenance for a variety of HVAC systems over a span of one, three, or five years. The prices of a single maintenance visit under these plans are usually less expensive than a one-time maintenance visit, since you are essentially purchasing your maintenance services in bulk. Not only can a maintenance plan save you money over time; it can be especially helpful to homeowners with a busy schedule! When you purchase a maintenance plan from us, our office calls to remind you when an upcoming maintenance is approaching, so that you never forget to have your appointment scheduled.

If you’re not sure what kind of plan you should purchase, or how frequently your HVAC system should have maintenance performed, our staff is always available to explain the details of our maintenance plans and answer your questions. Contact Us and we’ll work hard to find the right maintenance plan for you!

Save Time, Shop Online: Home Comfort Introduces Its New and Improved Filter Webpage

Dont_Forget_Change_Air_Filter

 

Over the past few months, the tech team at Home Comfort has been working hard on a new and improved version of our online filter sales webpage. As of this month, our filter page is up and running with more sizes and brands of filters available for purchase than ever before! As an added convenience to our customers, we have made our filters available for purchase and delivery to any part of the contiguous forty-eight states.

Changing your air filter regularly is an important part of the overall maintenance of your HVAC system, and it’s a good idea to keep extra filters handy, in case they need to be replaced between regular maintenance visits. Since air filter access points are usually discreetly located, it can be easy to forget to change your filter on a regular basis – especially when you add a trip to the hardware store for a new filter to an already busy schedule. Home Comfort can take away some of that hassle by delivering a case of air filters directly to your door!

Never thought of keeping a whole case of filters handy? Buying goods in bulk is a common way for families to stock up on groceries and other essentials at a lower price. Why not give buying filters in bulk a try, too? Our air filters webpage offers many of our filters by the case, which keeps our prices competitive and puts less strain on your wallet in the long run. Other brands on our site, such as our Aprilaire selection, are still only available for purchase in single units, but we work hard to make sure the prices for our individually packaged filters are a bargain, too.

Do you need a custom-sized filter? Or maybe a filter with a specific MERV rating? Don’t fret! If you don’t see the filter you need on our website, contact us by phone or email. We may be able to place a special order just for you!
