Furnace Installation in Tumwater, WA 98512
“In November 2018 I had Pacific Air install an electric furnace in my old manufactured home. It was my 1st experience with this type of purchase—-needless to say I had a lot to learn! I got 4 quotes and have no quarrels with any of the companies that I did not choose. Pacific Air impressed me from start to finish! Pacific Air explained to me the whole process to a much deeper degree than the other companies. Data was collected on my home and entered into a program that determines the proper furnace for my home. I was invited to side by side with the teck and watch the process; all the while every detail was being explained to me. Then the document was printed out for me to keep. I was soooo impressed! The teck talked to me about my old furnace and educated me on my new one. I had three furnaces to pick from –different price ranges. All explained to me with no hurry on the tecks part. I asked lots of questions and received good answers. Since this is a new experience I did do research on my own too. I choose a furnace and not the cheapest. The furnace was installed and the inspector passed the install. I give Pacific Air 5 stars plus! While I have no quarrels with the other companies; SOME tecks entered my home took some quick data and wanted to leave (were there 5 minutes or less). I had to ask them to sit down for I had questions. Guess Pacific Air just really spoiled me!!!!!! Anyone who reads this, just remember its always good to get several quotes, for you will see how different companies handle their business. I almost picked another company, was impressed, but realized I had only their quote! Mary”

Gas Line Installation in Olympia, WA 98501
“Wow! Great experience with Pacific Air. I had them install a gas line and downdraft ducting for a range in my kitchen island. It was a long, complicated duct run with little space to work in. Another company seemed confounded by the project and gave me a bid that was more than twice as much which I knew was ridiculous. A Pacific Air estimator came out, was very thorough and friendly, and gave me a fair estimate. Phil just did the work yesterday and it turned out great. He was professional, friendly and competent. They'll be my first recommendation for HVAC work from now on!”

The average air-source heat pump lasts around 15 years. An HVAC unit’s lifespan is dependent on several factors, including its design and overall quality. However, there are many factors that you, the owner, directly control. Caring for your heat pump requires diligence but is quite manageable if you get into the habit of it.
Often times, tasks are easier if you break them down into steps. So, from our team at Pacific Air Heating & Air Conditioning, here are five steps you can take to make your heat pump last longer:
1. Change Your Air Filter
Changing your heat pump’s air filter is key to a long life cycle. Filters help you breathe cleaner air. They also protect your heat pump’s equipment from dust. Yet, if a filter gets too dirty, it does more harm than good. With more and more built-up debris, your filter hinders air from passing through the way it should. That means your heat pump will take longer to reach the desired temperature, or it may even short cycle. Either way, this is hard on the internal components. Check your manufacturer’s guidelines to figure out how frequently you should change your filter. Additionally, it’s a good idea to check it habitually. If it looks like it needs to be changed, it probably does.
2. Keep Your Outdoor Unit Clean
This aspect is often overlooked. Remove sticks, leaves, and excess dirt from your outdoor box. Trim any shrubbery or ivy growing near it. During cold weather, snow and ice can be the enemy of your unit. Be conscious of the outside component’s appearance during wintertime. If it becomes ridden with snow or ice, power your unit down. Then pour warm water over it, and clean off the remaining frozen buildup.
3. Have Your Ducts Cleaned
Dust, debris, and even mold can settle in your ductwork over time. This can have negative effects on your indoor air quality (IAQ). Additionally, it is hard on your system’s components. To ensure proper airflow and clean air, you should have your ducts professionally cleaned once in a while. As a result, your system’s internal parts will be less likely to develop residue and more likely to last longer.
4. Schedule Routine Maintenance
What’s the best way to prevent breakage? Maintenance, of course! By scheduling maintenance at least once a year, you’ll be sure your system is running at peak performance. During a visit, your licensed professional can quickly diagnose and treat any potential problems. Any faulty parts, loose screws, or dirty components can quickly be remedied.
5. Have Repairs Performed by a Licensed Professional
While an under-qualified technician may tempt you with dirt-cheap prices, it’s best to have a knowledgable professional take care of the repair. Many factors in the repair, if wrongly executed, can void the system’s warranty and lead to future problems. That’s why you should find someone with the proper experience to address your issue.
Pacific Air Heating & Air Conditioning is a team of fully licensed professionals. We go above and beyond to protect the condition of your heating equipment. For any questions or to schedule service, call our Olympia, WA, office at 360-357-4328 today.
