Fairfield, Idaho, has the distinction of being the only city in Camas County. This gateway to the Sawtooth National Forest has warm, dry summers and very cold winters. Residents want to be sure they can always rely on their heating system and their central air conditioners when uncomfortable temperatures set in. The technicians at Home Heating & Air Conditioning provide installation, maintenance, and repair service for this equipment.
Our skilled HVAC technicians install, maintain and repair central air conditioners. Exterior equipment can be cleaned, adjusted and inspected during the same appointment as the annual furnace maintenance.
Repair services may become necessary as the central air conditioner gets older. Fairfield may not experience a large number of hot days in the summer, but residents still want their air conditioning to work when temperatures reach the mid-80s and higher.
The first step toward whole-house climate control in the summer is to have a central air unit installed. The household residents can keep their electric bills lower by setting the thermostat to 78 degrees when they are home, as recommended by the U.S. Department of Energy. Moving the setting up a few degrees when everyone will be gone most of the day saves even more energy.
The installation of furnaces and heat pumps provides consistent, convenient warmth to Fairfield households. Some homeowners in this region heat with wood, but nearly all of them choose to have another system for backup in case the fire goes out.
The annual furnace maintenance can be considered a tuneup that boosts efficiency and prevents malfunctions. The more efficiently a furnace runs, the longer it should last, and the less money people need to spend on heating bills.
Eventually, repair service for the furnace will probably become necessary. Because of the long, cold winters here, Fairfield residents put a lot of demand on their heating equipment. A variety of issues can cause strange noises, inability to maintain the thermostat temperature or the furnace not working at all.
Heat pumps are alternatives to the standard furnace and central air combination. These devices move warm air out of the building on hot days and bring it inside on cold days. Even very cold air contains some heat. A heat pump is able to draw out that heat and transport it through the home.
Heating and cooling technicians may discover a leak in the ductwork during the annual maintenance and inspection. Sometimes a homeowner finds a place where ducts have started to separate. This can happen due to the force of the air blowing through these pipes over many years.
One of the easiest and most affordable ways to improve air quality is to change the disposable air filter for the system as recommended. For best results, homeowners should use a filter with a high MERV rating. Another option is to have the heating technician add a compartment for a longer-lasting filter. These large filters can capture 12 to 20 times more tiny particles than other filters do.
Air purifiers can be used to further improve air quality in the home. These devices are particularly useful for household residents experiencing chronic hay fever symptoms. The residents may be allergic to substances like pollen, dust and mold spores. These individuals feel much better once an air purifier is running.
High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters are the most effective for removing unwanted substances from the air. They capture nearly 100% of particulates measuring 0.3 microns and larger.
Whole-house humidifiers can be installed to run with the furnace since conditions in the home tend to be too dry over the winter. Moister air makes the home feel warmer and more comfortable. This allows the residents to lower the thermostat a bit and avoid shocks from static electricity.
Two main strategies provide effective protection from the poisonous gas carbon monoxide. One is the annual furnace inspection, during which technicians make sure everything is in excellent working order. The other is to have at least one carbon monoxide detector on every floor of the home.
