Winter weather is right around the corner and you have likely already started relying on your heating system to keep you and your family warm. Have you noticed that it simply isn’t keeping up with the demand? Are you wondering if there is a problem? Here are some common reasons why your furnace isn’t working.

#1: Internal components.
Over time and regular use, the furnace system’s motors, belts, and bearings can break. There is an increased chance of these things breaking down if you don’t regularly service your system. The blower motor is one of the main parts of the system that circulates the air into your home, and it can break down easily if not tuned-up annually. If that breaks, warm air cannot be circulated into your home and you will need a furnace repair.

#2: Dirt and dust buildup.
Did you know that most of the breakdowns we see are due to significant dust and dirt buildup? Not changing your furnace filters enough can cause breakdowns and the need for furnace repairs. Dirt air filters will block air flow and cause your system to work harder than necessary. That means the system is not running efficiently and the internal parts are under greater strain. Be sure to change your filters every other month. Another way to avoid dust and dirt buildup is by scheduling annual maintenance appointments. Our trained team of technicians will clean the system internally and ensure that all parts are running efficiently. We will perform a safety inspection and make sure there are no issues that could cause potential problems or breakdowns later.

#3: Gas line.
Sometimes your gas furnace will not run properly if there is an issue getting adequate gas through the gas line. This is something that should only be diagnosed by a natural gas specialist because the potential danger and health risks that come with working with gas. You will need to ensure that the system is shut down completely and that the professional can access your system easily.

Our team at Hybrid Heating and Air Conditioning has been serving customers around the Pacific Northwest for more than three decades with furnace repair or furnace replacement. We can ensure that your system is at optimal performance so you can head into the winter knowing that you and your family will stay warm and comfortable all season long. Now is the time to make sure your system is tuned-up and ready to go. Call us today if your furnace needs an annual tune-up, repair or a full replacement.

Sunny days and frigid nights are in the forecast this week in Oregon and Southwest Washington. Your furnace system is working hard to generate warm air to keep you comfortable, but what happens when the cold weather hits? Here are some ways to keep your heating system protected from cold weather.

#1: Keep your system serviced.
It is important to have a furnace system that is reliable and ready to keep you warm no matter what the weather is doing outside. No one wants to risk having the system break down right when you need it most. The best way to prevent breakdowns like this is to keep your system tuned up. Our experienced team of technicians will clean or replace the air filters, run an energy efficiency check, and ensure there are no parts that may need repair now or soon.  It’s always best to spot potential issues early on so there are no surprises down the road. Just like your car needs tune-ups regularly, so does your heating system!

#2: Clean your air filters.
This is a simple job but a very important one! Cleaning or changing your air filters on a regular basis will help prolong the life of your system and will help prevent breakdowns. One of the most common causes of a furnace breakdown is from accumulated dirt and dust within the filter. Check the filters every other month, especially when you are using the system a lot.

#3: Check your insulation.
The more insulation you have in your home, the more efficient it will be. Insulation and your furnace system work hand in hand with each other. The insulation helps keep the warm air inside that your furnace system is pumping in. While you’re checking your insulation, make sure you have windows and doors properly sealed so you can minimize leaks that way too.

For more than three decades, Hybrid Heating and Air Conditioning has been serving customers around Oregon. Whether it’s a repair on your furnace or a full replacement, we will get the job on-time and within your budget. If you need a new furnace this year, now is the time to act.

Home is where you can relax and be yourself. It’s your oasis, so keeping temperatures as comfortable as possible is key. What about your commercial building at work? This is somewhere that you likely spend a lot of time. Our Pacific Northwest fall and winter seasons can bring a mixed bag of weather, and the last thing you need is a heating/cooling system that is not reliable. Wondering when you need to replace it and how you’ll pay for it? Here are some helpful tips on planning ahead for a full system replacement.

Tip #1: Determine what you need.
There are several different options when it comes to your heating and cooling system. Maybe a gas furnace is the best option. Or perhaps a ductless heating and cooling system would work well for your home and its unique layout. Whatever it is, do some research on what your options are and talk to us about what could work. Our experienced team of heating and cooling professionals will help you determine the type of system you need and what size is best. And most importantly, we will work to find something within your budget.

Tip #2: Know when it’s time to replace it.
Is your heating and cooling system at least 15 to 20 years old? If it’s been around for this long, chances are, it’s not running at peak efficiency. That means you are using more energy than is necessary and your utility bill will be higher. Not to mention, older systems are more prone to unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs. Continual repairs will cost money that you could be putting toward a new, reliable system.

Tip #3: Know what it costs.
Our team at Hybrid Heating & Air Conditioning recognizes that your home or commercial building’s heating and cooling system is a big investment. We happily work within your specified budget to provide different system options. We want to see you comfortable for years to come with a reliable system. We offer different financing options to help ease the cost of a new system.

Your home’s heating and cooling system is a critical part to your home. A good system is a big investment, so it’s natural to wonder how long it will last. There are two main factors that will affect your system’s lifespan.

#1: How well you maintain it.
Just like any machine – the better you take care of it, the longer it will last. Professional maintenance is key to ensuring the system lasts a long time. This will also help you know that unnecessary, unexpected breakdowns won’t happen. Scheduling annual maintenance is easy and as we look toward the start of autumn, this is a great time to get your appointment set! Our team of professionals at Hybrid Heating & Air Conditioning will take a close look at your machine, run an energy efficiency check, clean and/or replace air filters, and make sure that the internal components are working at their peak. More questions about what our preventative maintenance work includes? Call us today and we are glad to go over the details.

#2: How well it’s installed.
Having your system installed from an experienced, professional team of heating and cooling technicians is important. While it might be tempting to try to figure it out yourself, don’t give in. Our team of technicians has been trained to ensure each part is installed correctly, including the duct work, venting, sealing, and more. Each detail matters. With the right installation, your system can work for you for a long time.

On average, furnaces, ductless heat pumps, and air conditioners will last between 10 and 20 years. However, there are parts inside each of these systems that may need to be replaced before that. That’s why preventative maintenance is such an important part to keeping the system working. Hybrid Heating & Air Conditioning professionals will make sure we spot any prospective problem areas before they turn into big, expensive problems!

Call us today to get your preventative maintenance appointment scheduled! Or, if you know your system is at the end of its lifespan, we can help. Fall is the perfect time to get a new system installed so you have a reliable system to take you through the upcoming season changes. Contact us today!

This summer in the Pacific Northwest has been a little unusual. There have been a lot of cloudy days, but the humidity has been very apparent! The humidity can make people feel uncomfortable so achieving optimal indoor air comfort with your air conditioning system is important. Here is how humidity will affect your air conditioning.

Air conditioning systems are created to remove heat and moisture from the air. So, when the humidity is high, your air conditioner will need to work harder. If you have high indoor humidity, you will notice that the air feels clammy and moist and you may notice there are foggy windows and a musty odor in the home. While your AC system is meant to remove moisture from the air, if the humidity gets extra high, it is hard for your system to keep up. This is where dehumidifiers can help. This can be installed on your HVAC system and will work to pull moisture from the air before it’s sent through the duct work of your home. They can also be paired with your AC system so you can adjust the humidity level and temperature of your home all at once.

The result: cool, comfortable air all summer long. If your AC system can’t keep up because it is old or out of date, our team at Hybrid Heating and Air Conditioning can help. Systems that are working hard to keep you cool could cause your energy bill to spike and that’s never a welcome surprise. If you’re noticing a musty odor in your home or foggy windows and clammy air, contact us today to talk about your options! We are experts in indoor comfort and can offer tips that will help you enjoy the rest of your summer!

Kids are out for summer and the adventures have begun. Make sure that repairing your air conditioning system isn’t one of those adventures that you add to the list! There are several important reasons why you should service your system this summer.

#1: You can avoid expensive system breakdowns.
Regular maintenance on your system means you can avoid expensive, unexpected breakdowns. When the summer heat is blazing, the last thing you want to have is a system that won’t work. Regular maintenance appointments will ensure that everything is working efficiently and that there are no broken or worn internal parts that could pose a problem.

#2: You will extend the life of the system.
Summer is the perfect time to get your system tuned up, before the cool and wet weather returns. Just like a car needs regular oil changes and tune ups, so does your air conditioning system. This will help keep things running well, but it will also extend the life of your system, so you can get at least 10 to 15 years out of it.

When you schedule your service appointment with us, we will clean the air filters, run an energy efficiency check, and ensure that all the inside parts of the machine are functioning at peak efficiency. We will discuss any issues that we see and talk about options for repair or replacement.

Your air conditioning system plays a big role in your overall comfort this summer season! Summer is a very busy time for our experts at Hybrid Heating and Air Conditioning, so be sure that you schedule your preventative maintenance appointment right away!  If you know that your system is so old and inefficient that it won’t make it through another summer, we can help you find the right air conditioner that will work with your home’s unique layout and most importantly, your budget. We are standing by to help, so call us soon.

Spring official starts in just a couple of weeks, and that means we’ll have more sunshine, green grass, and blooming flowers. For people that live with seasonal allergies and asthma, this time of year could mean some miserable symptoms like coughing, sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, and more. But did you know that your indoor heating and cooling system can bring in those outside pollutants to your home? Here’s how your heating and cooling system affects your allergies.

Your HVAC system has an air filter that helps catch dust, dirt, pet dander, pollen, mold, and other pollutants that cause issues with asthma and allergies. Over time, these build up in the filter and they need to be replaced or cleaned. If filter cleaning or replacement is not done regularly, the buildup will be recirculated through the air in your home and that means you will likely notice some allergy symptoms. Set a remind to check your filters and clean them every other month at the minimum.

Another way to avoid poor indoor air quality is to stay on top of preventative maintenance appointments for your heating and cooling system. Just like you would take your car in for regular oil changes, so should you remember to maintain one of the most important systems in your home. Spring is the perfect time to schedule your tune-up with Hybrid Heating and Air Conditioning. We will clean and/or replace filters, run an efficiency check on your machine to ensure that it’s working at its peak, then check to make sure there are no outstanding issues with the inside components that may cause an issue later down the road. If there is anything that we notice, we will let you know what needs to be repaired or replaced and talk about what our recommendations are. With the upcoming shift in season, you will want to be ready to handle whatever mother nature throws your way!

One more way to bolster indoor air quality and reduce seasonal allergy symptoms is to install an air purification system. These work alongside your heating and cooling system to clean your air and reduce pathogens, allergens, and other particles that try to make their way inside. Customers that use air purification systems notice a difference right away in their quality of life. We have a variety of different air purification systems available as options, so contact us today to see which one is right for you!

Need a system replacement, a preventative maintenance appointment, repair, or information on an air purification system? Contact us today for more information, so you can get everything ready just in time for springtime.

Local weather experts are predicting that this month temperatures will drop more than they have all winter. That means you will be relying on your heating system even more than you might have already. Did you know that insulation in your home plays a big role in the overall comfort of your home and the overall effectiveness of your heating system? Here is how insulation affects your heating system.

Poor insulation or incomplete insulation will allow heat to escape through your roof and walls. If you notice that your rain is drying more quickly on different parts of your walls or roof, this could be a sign of poor or missing insulation in that area. When you think about how much it costs to heat your home during the winter, you don’t want that to be wasted. Insulation is a practical, easy way to reduce your energy bill and conserve energy, all while still staying comfortable. It will also help in the summertime when cool air needs to be kept inside and warm air needs to stay outside. The most important places to have quality insulation are:

  • Attic: heat rises, and it will escape through your attic and roof. If you have insulation in your attic, you can save up to 30% in energy and will allow your heating system to not work as hard
  • Wall: warm air will escape through windows and gaps around your doors and cold outdoor wind could also be pushed inside through those gaps
  • Floor: Heat radiates through flooring and underfloor insulation will help reduce heat loss by trapping the warm air into the fiber
  • Crawl space: The crawl space in your home may not be used much but if it’s not insulated well, the outdoors will try to make their way indoors. This could mean pests could get in and mold or mildew could form too. Insulation will not only keep your home warmer, but it will also help in keeping moisture at bay.
  • Basement: Basements can be cold, but with insulation you can have a more comfortable, moisture-free area that saves energy.

Insulation is an affordable way to keep your home warmer this winter and cooler in the summer. The investment will pay off when you see your utility bills start decreasing. Perhaps you’ve done the insulation and you’re still seeing high energy bills. Our experienced team of professionals at Hybrid Heating and Air Conditioning can help! Routine preventative maintenance can help point out any issues and if you need a repair or replacement for your furnace, we can help with that too! Contact us today. There is nothing better than year-round comfort!
