Don’t Get Left in the Cold! It’s Time for a Yearly Tune-Up

Friday, August 31st, 2018

There’s no better time to get a tune-up than right before a new season. If you haven’t been keeping up with maintenance, we forgive you—but we don’t want your luck to run out.

The fact is, many HVAC system owners are waiting until their systems break down before making a repair call. But HVAC systems don’t just break down within seconds—there’s usually a problem that has been silently degrading the system’s performance over the span of months. When the wrong part breaks or stops working, that’s when you get problems.

Since most furnaces use gas or oil, neglecting maintenance can be especially costly or dangerous.

  • Gas furnaces need to be checked annually to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • When dealing with gas or oil fueled heaters, age can have a larger effect on their efficiency and safety than with electric furnaces.
  • A faulty ignition or pilot can prevent the heater from functioning efficiently or at all.

Maintenance can prevent up to 80% of HVAC system problems before they happen. That leaves only a 20% chance you’ll need repairs at a time when you need it most. And if you sign up for our service agreement, that 20% will be mitigated with discounts and priority service.

Don’t wait for your heater to break down this season. Contact Westland Heating & Air Conditioning today for a comprehensive maintenance check for your entire heating system.

Monday, August 13th, 2018

blue-question-markWe don’t want to disappoint you later, so we’ll just say it now:

The most efficient AC depends on you and how you use it.

We know that’s not exactly the answer you want to hear. It would be better if there was one simple answer, but that won’t be the case when it comes to finding the most efficient AC for your home.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t help you. Some HVAC configurations are wiser than others, depending on how your home was built and what heating or AC systems you may have already. We’ll go over a few common scenarios and tell you which AC would be the most efficient for you.
