Gas Furnace Repair in Olympia, WA 98502

“The young man appeared to be very knowledgeable. Could not find the reason for the furnace turning itself on, as it had been turned off for the last three months, but believe it is the thermostat. Guess we will have to have it replaced.”

– Wendy P.

Air Conditioner Repair in Shelton, WA 98584

“Initially we struggled with the punctuality and returning a phone call with this company, but they redeemed themselves after we made our concerns clear. The technician was on time and very friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend Pacific Air.”

– Chris&May R.

Gas Furnace Replacement in Olympia, WA 98501

“I wish to express my gratitude to Pacific Air for the excellent customer service I received during a furnace inspection and necessary replacement. The phone was usually answered by Jackie, she was both friendly knowledgable. She never acted like I didn't know what I was talking about, even when we both knew I didn't. My tech was Kyle. He was very personable and explained, in layman's terms for me, what was wrong, what needed to be replaced and my options. All with no pressure. I will always call Pacific Air and recommend them to anyone needing service.”

– Scott K.

Fall HVAC Maintenance

September 14, 2019
As the saying goes, “Time and tide wait for no one.” Whether you’re prepared or not, the summer months and warmer weather are gone, moving aside for fall and cooler temps. That means here in Olympia you need to think about preparing your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system for fall maintenance. Maintaining your heating and cooling equipment ensures it’ll run smoothly the way it should when you need it. Investing your time and money in these seasonal maintenance tasks goes a long way to protect both your Washington home and your HVAC investment, including your wallet. Well-running systems are more energy efficient, so they end up costing you less to run all season long.

Fall Maintenance for Your Air Conditioner

Just because you won’t be turning your air conditioner on now doesn’t mean you should forget about it til the spring and summer months. Part of protecting your home and equipment is winterizing your cooling system. If you’ve already had your air conditioner cleaned and checked by our Pacific Air Heating & Air Conditioning professionals before you used it this year, you can simply ask our heating and cooling professional to winterize your unit while he or she is out cleaning and checking your furnace. You can compare the maintenance checklist to what ENERGY STAR®.

Things you can do yourself:

  • Clean off the outside unit (condenser) from debris and dirt. If involving water in the process, be sure to switch off the unit’s power or the circuit first.
  • Remove any branches, tall grass, or brush within a four-foot proximity to the unit.
  • Insulate any exterior-exposed pipes with foam pipe covers, wrapping them with duct tape.
  • Cover the unit with a plastic or vinyl cover. Some folks have an air-conditioner-specific cover. If you don’t, you can use a tarp. Be sure to secure the cover, in whatever form, with bungee cords or vinyl rope. Perform this step after your HVAC technician has already done his or her part in the winterization process.

Things to ask your technician to do:

  • Clear drain lines and pipes to avoid having standing water in your system all winter.
  • Clean the coil from dust and dirt.
  • Check the refrigerant charge, belts and pulleys, and ducts.
  • Clean and check the entire system if you haven’t had it done yet this year.

Fall Maintenance for Your Heating System

You should schedule your annual maintenance appointment for your heating system before you use it for the season, regardless if you have a furnace, boiler, or heat pump. This appointment shouldn’t be skipped, as keeping your heating system in good order will be sure it’s ready when you need it and keep it functioning properly throughout the season for you.

Things you can do yourself:

  • Stock up and change your filters every three months, but if you have allergy issues, monthly is advised.
  • Vacuum your vents to keep them clear of dust, avoiding extra filter buildup or decreased indoor air quality (IAQ).

Things to ask your technician to do:

  • Clean and check your heating system, including (depending on whether you have a furnace or boiler) all the connections, controls, sensors, drains, ignitor, ducts, pipes, burners, valves, motors, thermostat(s), and smoke/carbon-monoxide detectors, and instruct you on anything you could do between your service visits.
  • Calibrate your thermostat to be sure the readings and heating are accurate.
