Preparing For Winter In A High, Dry, And Cold Climate Like Central Oregon

HVAC Service - Bend Heating - Bend Oregon

WINTER IS HERE CENTRAL OREGON!!!!!

WE WANT YOU TO BE WARM BE COOL BE HAPPY.

HERE ARE SOME HELPFUL HINTS TO OBTAIN THAT:

    1. THINK AHEAD

You don’t want to get caught on a really cold day with equipment that is malfunctioning. Better to check out all your heating equipment ahead of time and if needed, schedule a service/maintenance.

    2. CHECK YOUR FILTER

We recommend using a high quality filter. A MERV 10 or 11 can reduce particle dust by 80%.

    3. CHECK YOUR FURNACE FOR PROPER OPERATION

Cycle your furnace on and off a few times (10 mins or so).

    4. CLEAN OUT YOUR AIR VENTS

Lift off the register cover and gently vacuum down inside your duct. While you have your vacuum out you might want to check your return air vent. They can get really dirty. Use your brush attachment to clean them. Also remove any objects that might obstruct the air flow from your vents.

    5. PROGRAM YOUR THERMOSTAT WISELY

If you have a Gas Furnace or a Heat Pump set your thermostat to go down no more than 4*F at night and when you are away from home. If you have a Ductless unit we have a saying “Set it and forget it”.

These tips will assure that you will be using the most energy efficient ways of operation and also help keep your utility bills manageable while putting the least amount of wear and tear on your equipment.

Remember, your comfort is our business.
