Don’t Forget About Your Ductless Mini Split Tune-Up!

Monday, February 13th, 2017

ductless-min-splitThere is no way that you’ve not heard about how important routine heating and cooling maintenance is if you’ve been following this blog at all. The long and short of it is this. Your heating and air conditioning systems will never function as well, reliably, or efficiently as possible if you fail to schedule routine maintenance service. Now, that’s all well and good, but what happens when you use just one system throughout the entire year? We’ll tell you what should happen. You should schedule routine maintenance for it twice!

A system that is functioning as a heater and as an air conditioner, such as your ductless mini split, is doing the twice the amount of work that a designated heater or AC system would be doing. If you fail to schedule ductless mini split tune-ups twice a year, that is the equivalent of scheduling furnace maintenance only every other year. You are really just asking for trouble if this is the attitude that you take. Contact us if you have any questions, or to schedule ductless mini split services in Everett, WA.

Is It Really That Important to Replace My Air Filters?

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

If you own and operate a forced air HVAC system, then you have probably already heard all about how important it is that you schedule routine, annual maintenance. What you may not realize, though, is just how important it is that you complete at least one maintenance step on your own: changing your air filter.
