How about scum build up in your showers? Dishes not getting clean? All of these are probably due to, you guessed it, HARD WATER. Utah is known for having very hard water. The damage to your home over time can be pretty drastic if left untreated.
Water softeners can help, but remembering to purchase salt or chemicals for them can be a hassle and costly. Plus, most water softeners are not good for the environment. That’s why we recommend the Flow-Tech Home anti-scale water system.

The winters here in Utah are very dry. Maintaining the ideal indoor humidity level is important to ensure that your home isn’t growing mold or mildew. Not only is this hard on your home, but it can also cause a myriad of health problems for those living in your home.
Why is having a humidifier important? These three reasons might surprise you.
The TOP 3 Reasons why you should Install a Whole Home Humidifier:
1. Improve your health.
- Decrease colds and flu.
- Reduce sinus infections and stop bloody noses.
- Avoid dry skin, hair, and nails.
Our bodies are made up of between 60 and 65% of water. When the humidity levels in our home are below 40% that causes our bodies to work harder to retain moisture. Often times we end up with chronic dry coughs, stuffy noses, very dry and cracking skin, headaches from dehydration, and a multitude of other unpleasant symptoms. Our nasal passages dry out, leaving us more susceptible to colds and sinus infections.
2. Protect the wood in your home.
- Hardwood floors
- Wooden furniture
- Musical instruments
- Wood trim, doors, and walls
Many homeowners do not realize what the proper humidity levels are for a home. Ideal humidity levels should be between 45 and 65%. With each winter the loss of moisture to a home dries out wood and can actually cause walls to shift. It is also damaging to any other wood materials or items in the home.
3. Maintain correct humidity levels.
- Avoid static shock.
- Keep mold at bay.
- Reduce dust.
If too much humidity is happening in your home, it can cause mold and mildew to grow. We definitely don’t want that! Humidifiers are also known for reducing dust and dust mites in your home, keeping those with dust allergies happy and requiring you to dust less. There’s also nothing worse than being shocked just from walking across the room. Humidifiers help to eliminate that from happening by maintaining the proper humidity levels.
Don’t let the cold dry air harm your home and family this year. Give us a call and we’ll come assess your home and humidity levels to see if a humidifier is a good investment.

Answer: Because they get dirty!
Many people don’t think about air duct cleaning until it is absolutely necessary. Because the air ducts are hidden from sight, it is easy to forget about them. However, nothing is more important to your indoor air quality than your duct system. To have a healthy and efficient home, you need to schedule regular duct cleaning.
The Facts About Indoor Air Quality
Through normal occupation in a home, we tend to generate a lot of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. This re-circulation can cause a build-up of contaminants in the ductwork over time.
In addition to normal accumulations of dust and dirt found in all homes with air ducts, there are several other factors that can increase the need for regular HVAC system cleaning:
- Cigarette or cigar smoke
- Water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system
- Home renovation or remodeling projects
Some occupants may be more sensitive than others to these contaminants. Allergy and asthma sufferers, as well as young children and the elderly, tend to be more susceptible to the types of poor indoor air quality that air duct cleaning can help address.
With a professional duct cleaning, here are two of the many benefits you will experience.
Your heating and cooling system are the lungs of your home. The system takes air in and breathes air out. Dirt, bacteria, and even viruses can lurk in your duct system and then are blown all around your home. Dirty ducts can cause the following symptoms:
- Increased asthma symptoms
- Increased allergy symptoms
- Runny nose
- Tightness in the chest
These symptoms can be quickly resolved with a thorough duct cleaning. If the symptoms persist or get worse, you should seek medical attention.
Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use.
When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn’t have to work as hard to keep the right temperature in your home. As a result, less energy is used, saving you money in energy bills.
Choose a Quality Air Duct Cleaning Company
There are many companies out there that claim ridiculously cheap pricing for their duct cleaning. The truth is, you get what you pay for when it comes to air duct cleaning. You should never trust just anyone with the health and safety of your home. Western Heating & Air Conditioning are Certified Comfort Experts who take pride in doing a job the right way, even if it’s not the easy way. Westen has a long history of customer satisfaction.

Furnace Repair Can Reduce Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Risk
At Western Heating & Air we know that nothing is more important than the health and safety of your family. As winter time arrives and families spend more time indoors with their heaters turned up, the risk for carbon monoxide poisoning increases. This is why it is so essential that you call us early for furnace maintenance. Whether your furnace simply needs a tune-up or furnace repair service, we can be there to help keep you and your family safe and warm all season long.
The Dangers of Carbon Monoxide
Each year in the United States, carbon monoxide poisoning results in 450 deaths and over 20,000 visits to the emergency room. This is particularly tragic as most of these deaths and illnesses could have been prevented. One of the reasons carbon monoxide is so dangerous is because it is completely odorless and colorless and can cause death long before you are even aware that it is in your home. Any type of fuel-burning appliance or device can give off carbon monoxide, including furnaces. To avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, every home should have a CO detector on every level of the home, and homeowners should call for furnace repair at least annually to diagnose or prevent problems (The Beacon).
Call Us Today
Take an important step towards protecting your family from carbon monoxide poisoning by calling us at Western Heating and & Air for furnace repair or service. We are dedicated to providing the quality service you can count on. Contact us at 801-375-COOL to set up an appointment today.
