Case Study: A/C Tune-Up
Western Heating & Air Conditioning provides solutions to your HVAC problems. See how we helped this customer cool his home again.
Customer’s Challenge: Russell and his family live in Provo and noticed that they couldn’t feel as much cold air coming through their vents and figured it was just a problem with their blower filter being clogged. Like most people, they put the issue aside and forgot about it. Thankfully they are Monument Club Members, so Western gave them a call reminding them that it was time for their routine tune-up at a discounted price.
Western’s Solution: One of Western’s Most Wanted Technicians, Adam, was sent to visit Russell for a tune-up. Adam first checked the outside A/C unit before going inside to make sure the unit itself was working properly. From the outside, Adam saw that the A/C looked clean and damage free. It wasn’t until he unscrewed the cover to see how dirty and cluttered it was inside the A/C unit.
There were cobwebs, leaves, and dirt everywhere. After a 30 point Precision Tune-Up, Adam found that the A/C was working properly. Like every tune-up Western does, Adam took the time to properly clean and clear out the inside of the A/C unit to prevent it from potential break downs or issues in the future.
Final Results: Adam spoke with Russell and let him know that his diagnosis of the issue was that the system just needed to be cleaned and serviced. He also mentioned that there was nothing wrong with the A/C unit besides that it was dirty on the inside, which could cause several problems in a few years since his A/C was 10 years old. Adam helped switch the filter in Russell’s vents and had the A/C blowing cold air again. Russell was glad he got a tune-up to rejuvenate his A/C and keep it in great shape and that Adam showed him how to keep his A/C clean so that it’d extend the life of the unit.
1) A/C units have an average 15 year lifetime. Around this time different parts begin to wear and the unit can break down. If your A/C is routinely maintained then you may be able to extend the life for several additional years. That’s why we’ve provided the Monument Club for customers so we can keep track of their A/C for them!
2) A/C units are easy to clean! Adam has said that anyone can simply screw the cover off their unit, check what’s inside, and clean it out. Simply, all you need to do is to remove any debris, hose the outside and inside, and if any of the outside fins are bent, grab a butter knife and straighten them out! There is a lot more to a tune-up than that, but those 3 things are basic things that homeowners can do.
3) Every A/C is different, so be sure to call Western Heating & Air Conditioning today to have a technician come out to give your A/C tune-up to keep it running great. It could save you hundreds, even thousands of dollars down the road to take a few minutes to clean and service your A/C unit.

Lighten Mom’s Load!
Happy Mother’s Day! One of the biggest blessings in my life is the opportunity I have to be the mother of my four amazing children. They bring me joy with beautiful flowers, sweet love notes, and lots of cuddly hugs. But along with the joy they also bring me the challenges of broken hearts, scraped knees, and endless loads of laundry. I’ve learned a band-aid and a hug can go a long way, but what about the laundry?
Nine months ago my husband introduced our family to an amazing product that made our laundry process not only easier, but actually saved me hundreds of dollars! It is called the Laundry Pro by Areus. It’s a unique system that is installed next to the washing machine and only uses cold water. It also eliminates the need for detergents, bleaches and fabric softeners for good! This is great news for families who have allergic reactions to harmful chemicals found in detergents.
This is a simple technology has been utilized in hospitals and hotels all over the world, and now it’s available for your home. By using a patented process, cold water runs through the system and is infused with oxygen and peroxide gases that cause the water to bubble and fizz. This, in turn, causes the water to actively lift the grime and dirt from the fabrics while also fluffing the materials as well. I have noticed my towels are so fluffy and not weighted down by extra residue left from the detergent.
Since the installation of our Laundry Pro, laundry time has been a breeze; even the kids can use it! There is no more measuring, detergent spills, and I’m saving hundreds from not buying detergent anymore. I’m also enjoying my energy bill savings. This has been a fabulous investment for our family.
Western Heating & Air Conditioning is an authorized dealer in Utah County and we are now installing these units in homes. We have a wonderful a Mother’s Day special on the installation of a new Laundry Pro. Call 801-375-COOL to lighten mom’s load and start saving her loads of money!

4 Spring-Cleaning Tips For 2017
Spring-cleaning can quickly get overwhelming but you don’t have to do it all at once. Spread it out over a few weeks and it’ll flow much easier. Here are some tips for making your spring-cleaning a refreshing endeavor instead.
The first step is to make some room in your home. Instead of piling everything into boxes and stacking it in the basement, get rid of the clutter and resolve to minimize.Start by sorting according to the STUD method:
Store what you absolutely need or love. Photos mightn’t count as a “need” but they definitely have a special place and should never be discarded.
Toss anything that you haven’t used for more than a year that’s too old to give away or isn’t working anymore. Broken toys that you’re holding on to for sentimental reasons fall into this category (sorry kids!).
“Unsure” pile, is a temporary holding place so you don’t get stuck trying to make a decision. One you’ve sorted everything else, promise yourself you’ll spend no more than 30 seconds deciding on each item. Set a timer if you must!
Donate gently used clothes, shoes you wore once, the baby’s high chair that never left the basement (even though “baby” is now six years old).
Once you’ve made some room, start cleaning all surfaces. Enlist friends and family, turn on some music and turn it into a party.Here’s a quick checklist to get you started:
- Clean windows (inside and out).
- Dust ceiling fans and light bulbs.
- Wipe down and polish furniture and anything on it. Deep clean fabrics to get rid of embedded grime.
- Dust eletronics. Make sure you use the right anti-static cloths to prevent static build-up.
- Deep clean carpets and polish floors.
- Dust paintings and picture frames.
- Wash and replace curtains. Wipe down blinds.
- Replace your furnace filter.
Here’s the fun part.Give your home a makeover by replacing old photos, adding new ones, changing your curtains, rearranging the furniture, buying new furniture, having the kids do a huge painting for the living room, repainting, buying flowers for the dining table… you get the picture.
When it’s all done, have some hot chocolate and watch your favorite movie. Invite your friends over for a barbecue on the first warm day in spring. You don’t have to wait for a summer evening to fire up the grill.
Always remember that we at Western Heating & Air Conditioning are here to help! Though we may not be able to come and totally clean your home, we can surely help make your home comfortable by helping your family breathe easier!
