Preparing Your Seattle and Tacoma Your Furnace, AC Heating and Cooling Units For Winter
When winter approaches, it's natural that you'll want to have your heating unit in working order.

Furnace Repair and Maintenance
Of course, before it starts getting cold, you'll want to make sure your furnace is in working order. It's always a good idea to have your heating unit tuned up in the fall because you don't want to run into problems on the first freezing day of the season.
The certified, licensed technicians at Hunt's Services will come to your home, change your filters, check your thermostat, lubricate your blower motors, and clean your heat exchanger. These basic tasks ensure the unit is in tip-top shape from the get-go, so you don't end up calling for help later.
If there is a problem with your furnace that requires an immediate fix, don't fret because Hunt's Services can handle that in a hurry, as well. Just have one of our furnace experts inspect your unit, and we'll get to the bottom of the issue in no time at all. From there, we'll handle the repair before it gets cold, leaving you with peace of mind as we head into winter.
Call Hunt's Services at 253-533-7500 to get us on the job right away. Our technicians are standing by around the clock and can handle any issue that arises with your furnace, ensuring you are completely warm all winter long.
Heat Pump Installation and Repair
Heat pumps are growing in popularity because they are cheap to run and can act as both a heating and cooling unit. If you're thinking of upgrading to a heat pump, either through your ducts or a ductless in-room device, Hunt's should be your first call this autumn. Our group of certified technicians can have your new heat pumps up and running in no time at all, giving you yet another option for heating your home in the coldest months of the year.
Or, if you already have a heat pump in your home, we're here to perform regular maintenance and handle any repairs that arise. In the end, as long as you take care of your heat pumps, they should last you for years, and we're here to assist you every step of the way.
Air Conditioning Maintenance
Something else you might consider taking care of before winter is your regular air conditioner maintenance. Every spring, air conditioning repair shops like Hunt's are overrun with customers wanting their units tuned up before summer. By having your system looked at in the fall, you can get ahead of the curve, so you won't have to worry about long waits later.
You can also have any repairs that you require done right now, rather than holding off, as this means your air conditioner will be fully functional right when you need it. There's the question of whether or not you should winterize your air conditioning unit, as well, and the truth is that it depends on the make and model.
Some units should be completely covered throughout the winter, but even if your particular air conditioner doesn't necessarily need a cover, putting a piece of plywood over the casing to protect the condenser from falling ice is a good idea. Physical damage to these units often occurs during the winter, so if there's anything you can do to prevent it, it's a good idea to do so.
Since your furnace will frequently run once it gets cold out, you might want to have your ducts clean before temperatures drop too severely. Cleaning your vents will ensure the air in your home is cleaner, which can prevent the stuffiness that often plagues houses in the winter.
Another reason to have your ducts cleaned is the presence of mold and other pollutants that can grow there during the summer. The humidity in the air in the warmer months creates a breeding ground for bacteria, which can be harmful if you breathe it in.
Protect yourself and keep the air in your air as clean as possible by having your ducts cleaned out before winter comes. The process is very manageable, as it involves a giant vacuum sucking particles directly from your vents and out of your home, but it is well worth the investment.
