This summer was definitely one of our hottest! You’re probably looking forward to the cooler temps and actually using your heater instead of blasting your air conditioner day in and day out at this point. Of course, if you want to be as comfortable as possible while efficiently using your HVAC system, then it’s important that you take a few HVAC care steps before you get too far into fall. One of those steps is to take care of any lingering air conditioning repair in Creswell, OR you may have.
The end of summer is the most likely time to experience an AC breakdown, because of how much work our systems go through in this season. But if you know the signs of repair needs, which we’ll get into below, then you can help ensure your AC will do its job to the best of its ability when you need it. Read on to learn more about this and to see some other fall HVAC tips we have to share.

With the unseasonably warm weather we have had in our area recently, it may seem odd to even think about heating maintenance right now. But as rare as recent weather was, we usually get cooler temperatures the majority of the year. So, as fall approaches, it’s important to assess our heaters and see what kind of shape they’re in. This is especially true if you own a business or manage a commercial property. If you think a residential heater has a lot of maintenance needs, then imagine what your commercial heater might need!
And yes, your commercial heater does need routine maintenance. This means once a year for your furnace or boiler. If you have a heat pump system or ductless heat pump, then the system should be tuned-up twice a year. Read on as we uncover just why this is so important.

It goes without saying that it’s been a little hot in our area recently! While summers are never cold, we’re definitely not used to the extreme heat we’ve been experiencing in recent weeks (with more to come). So we would completely understand your temptation to blast your air conditioner at the lowest temperature possible. This could actually be doing more harm than good to your air conditioner, while not doing much at all to improve your comfort.
We’re going to dive into the why of this below, as well as how managing your AC needs efficiently can help you avoid the need for air conditioning repair in Eugene, OR. In the meantime, if you have any questions or need urgent air conditioning service, please don’t hesitate to give our number a call.

When it comes to both protecting your household and keeping your family comfortable, one of the most important aspects of your home is its electrical system. Properly caring for this system and knowing when to call for repairs or an electrical panel upgrade (which we’ll talk about below) are essential to a hazard-free home. The good news is, there are some electrical upgrades you can make that are not only quite useful, but can be fun too!
Don’t forget, however, you always need a professional electrician for any work involving your home’s wiring. This is the law, first off—there are certain municipal building codes we have to abide by. Then there is your safety to consider, and the integrity of your property.
With that said and without further ado, here are some upgrades you might want to consider this summer. We’ll start with the fun ones!

Imagine this scene playing out in your home: You’re in your living room, sitting on the couch relaxing. It’s an 85°F day, but that’s alright! After all, your air conditioner is blasting away, providing you with cool air that makes you feel perfectly comfortable. Until suddenly, it stops working.
What do you do next? If you’re like most folks, you probably head over to your thermostat. Maybe you see that the settings are correct and the device seems to be working okay. So next is the circuit breaker panel—did the breaker for the AC trip? Nope, that’s fine too. So what’s happening?
You go ahead and call for emergency repairs, but you have to wait because everyone’s doing the same thing on this hot day. Now you’re stuck not only feeling frustrated, but uncomfortable too.
Well, hopefully, you’ll never have this scenario play out. Read on as we uncover some major clues that it’s time to call an HVAC pro for a small repair need before it grows into a much bigger problem, like the one we just outlined.

The electrical panel of your home, also referred to as the circuit breaker panel, is tasked with keeping your household’s entire electrical system running smoothly and safely throughout the years. You probably don’t think about this home component very much—unless you have to constantly reset breakers. But because of this, problems can crop up without you knowing about it until it results in an outage or some other more serious problem.
If you’ve lived in your home for 25+ years and have never had an electrical inspection done, now is the time. Older electrical panels require professional care and attention to make sure that they are not operating in a way that could threaten your home or your family’s safety. If you do find that you have an urgent electrical problem, we’re the team to call. However, we’d like to help you avoid electrical problems altogether, and for that reason, we’ve put together these signs for you:

When most people think about “air quality,” they’re focused on what’s in the air outside, such as pollen or mold levels. But actually, your indoor air quality can be worse than that of outdoors, especially without the right products and services in place. With Americans spending more time indoors than ever before, it makes sense that you’d want to find the best way to make the air you breathe as healthy as possible. This is especially true if you have household members who suffer from allergies or asthma.
So, perhaps an air purifier is the answer? While it would be easy, and certainly cheaper, to go with a portable system, a whole-house system is really what’s going to do the trick. Read on to learn why.
