Keeping your home or office cool during the warm summer months in Oregon City isn’t just a convenience—it’s a necessity. Not only does air conditioning help to keep you, your family, and your employees cool, but it also helps to maintain proper humidity within your building.
The most obvious sign that your air conditioner isn’t working right is that it fails to turn on. However, there are a number of other symptoms that may suggest that you’re in need of an AC repair. Here are just a few of the most common things that we encounter:
- A unit that is leaking
- Low or no airflow coming from your vents
- Strange smells and/or noises
- The cool air that isn’t distributed evenly throughout the house
- A thermostat that isn’t functioning
- A unit that cycles frequently or runs for extremely long periods of time
- Energy bills that suddenly increase
If you notice any of these issues, it’s best to call out an HVAC technician sooner rather than later. By addressing it early on, you may prevent a small concern from growing into a bigger—and more expensive—problem.
AC Replacement & Installation
While our technicians at Control Techs NW will do everything that they can to repair your AC unit, eventually all air conditioners will need to be replaced. The average lifespan of an air conditioning unit is between 10 to 20 years, and while regular maintenance and repairs will extend the life of your system somewhat, there will come a point when it makes more financial sense to replace your system. Our techs can help you to know when it’s time to make that decision and aid you in planning your project to ensure a smooth transition.
If you do decide to replace your air conditioner or you want to install an AC system in a new construction home, there are several options available to you, including:
- Central (packaged) AC
- Split systems
- Heat pumps
- Evaporative coolers (also known as a “swamp cooler”)
- Ductless mini-splits
Our technicians are fully trained on a wide range of manufacturers, so no matter what system works best for your home or business, you can rest assured that we’ll get the job done right and find the perfect solution for your unique comfort needs.
It’s always a good idea to have your air conditioner inspected once a year, preferably sometime in the spring before you need to use your AC. During this annual AC tune-up, one of our technicians will clean dirt and debris from the unit (including the air filter), check for any active or potential leaks, inspect the unit for damage, and check your refrigerant levels.
By getting yearly AC maintenance, you’ll extend the life of your unit and keep it running at peak efficiency. Contact Control Techs NW today to schedule your next AC tune-up.
Keeping your heater in good repair isn’t just about comfort—it’s about keeping your home or your business safe. Leaks and other issues with your heater can be extremely dangerous. When you partner with Control Techs NW, we’ll make sure your heating system is running at peak efficiency and that your furnace won’t pose any health or safety risks.
When your home or business starts getting uncomfortably cool, you want to be able to turn on your system and have warm airflow from your vents. But when something goes wrong with your furnace, that air might not be warm enough to get the job done. It might not be warm at all!
If you’re not sure whether you need a furnace repair, you should contact one of the experts at Control Techs NW, who will ask if you’ve noticed any of the following:
- Odd noises, like rattling or clunks
- Extended or very rapid heating cycles
- Inconsistent heat throughout your home
- A heater that won’t turn on
- An increasing energy bill
- A carbon monoxide detector going off
When any of these signs appear, it’s a good bet that you’re going to need a technician to come out and perform a diagnosis. They’ll identify the trouble, provide a thorough evaluation of the issue, and fix the root cause to get your system back up and running.
Furnace Installation & Replacement
Even with regular maintenance, your furnace has an expected lifespan of 15 to 20 years. If your furnace is within that range, it’s probably time to consider getting a furnace replacement. When you’ve reached the decision to install a new furnace, our team is here to guide you through the entire process. We’ll help you choose the type and size of the furnace that will provide enough warmth to meet your needs.
Electric furnaces work by blowing air over a heating element. They’re usually smaller than other types of heaters, and they’re typically quite cost-effective, although they tend to not last as long as gas or oil furnaces.
Gas furnaces heat air by passing it through a chamber heated by a natural gas flame, usually supplied by a municipal line. These are generally less costly to run than electric furnaces, but they also require more upkeep to maintain efficiency.
Oil furnaces work like gas heaters, except that they use heating oil for fuel, which is typically more expensive than natural gas. These systems are often found in areas where natural gas lines aren’t available.
Whichever type of furnace you choose, our technicians will make sure that your furnace installation goes smoothly, so you don’t have to be without heat. Sit back and relax, our white-glove approach will leave you with a smile and a sigh of relief.
Did you know that you should schedule an annual tune-up for your heater? Having your furnace maintenance performed in the fall helps to ensure your system will work when winter hits. During a furnace tune-up, an HVAC technician will clean and inspect your system, checking for leaks and the proper functioning of your unit. They’ll change the air filter, lubricate parts, and repair any minor issues that they come across.
Getting this yearly tune-up will end up saving you money in the long run. When you keep your furnace working at peak efficiency, you lower your monthly utility bills while extending the life of your heater, avoiding an unplanned furnace replacement.
Indoor Air Quality
HVAC repair isn’t only about keeping your home or business at the right temperature. It’s also about making sure your indoor air quality is at an acceptable level. While regularly cleaning or changing your air filters and maintaining your furnace and AC system can help, there are other products that can improve your air quality even more.
Mold, pollen, dust, bacteria, and other particulates in the air can trigger allergies and asthma attacks, while also making it more likely to catch colds and the flu. When you install products like air purifiers, ultraviolet lights, or whole-home humidifiers, you can help to reduce your home’s indoor air pollution significantly, making your home safer and more comfortable for everyone.
