It’s no secret that the winters in Utah can be bitter cold. Unfortunately, with these freezing temperatures also come the high costs of heating bills. At Western Heating & Air, we want you to call us for heating maintenance and follow a few simple tips that may help you cut down your heating bills substantially.
Cut Down on Your Heating Costs
Did you know that for every one degree you turn your thermostat down, you can save about one to three percent on your annual heating costs? If you turn up the thermostat before you get into bed at night, consider not turning it up as high and adding a few extra blankets to your bed to snuggle under. This is one of the easiest heating maintenance tips to follow.
While turning on your ceiling fan when temperatures are well-below freezing may seem crazy, doing this can also save you on your heating bills. Turn your ceiling fan on low and make sure it’s turning clockwise. When the fan is on, the warm air trapped near your ceiling will mix with the cold air in the room and keep the room warm. Homeowners that do this could potentially see a 15 percent reduction in heating costs for the entire home.
Give Us a Call For Expert Heating Maintenance
Having regular heating maintenance done on your furnace is also one of the best ways to ensure that your heating system is working efficiently and reduce your heating bills. For reliable and professional Orem, UT HVAC services, contact us at Western Heating & Air by filling out this online form.

In the middle of this long, cold winter, you’re probably spending a lot more time keeping warm inside your home. Now is a good time to think about your indoor air quality. The quality of the air in your home is important to your health and the well-being of your family members. At Western Heating & Air, we want to make sure you stay healthy with the freshest possible air. To ensure high air quality, here is what our professionals can do for you.
Inspect and Clean Your Air Ducts
The air you breathe in your home is often filled with contaminants such as pet dander, mold spores, and bacteria. This pollution can get into your lungs and cause health problems in the future. Impurities can get trapped in your air ducts as they circulate through your home, which may lead to serious respiratory and safety issues such as:
- Infestations of mold that can lead to serious health problems
- Potentially destructive – and even deadly – house fires
- Poor air circulation
It is important that you have your air ducts thoroughly cleaned by a trained and qualified technician to keep the indoor air quality of your home breathable and safe.
Here at Western Heating & Air, we want to make sure the indoor air quality in your home is ideal for you and your family. With our Orem, UT air quality services, you can be sure that your family stays healthy this winter. Contact us today to see how we can help.

In the midst of these cold winter months, we at Western Heating & Air know that having your heater running smoothly is essential to keeping your family warm and protected from frigid outdoor temperatures. Our professionals are trained to complete any heating maintenance and repairs needed at any time, but we also know that proper maintenance performed by our customers can keep their furnaces up and running throughout the winter season.
Just like you wouldn’t drive a vehicle without assuring that it is running properly, you also shouldn’t run your heater without checking on it first. If you forgot or haven’t had a chance to give your heater a thorough inspection, it is never too late. Heating maintenance is best done at the beginning of the season, but it is just as beneficial to keep an eye on your equipment throughout the winter. Here are some tips to ensure efficiency and proper usage:
- Inspect and replace air filters on a regular basis.
- Clean the blower assembly if needed.
- Call a professional for a thorough inspection.
Remember, it’s better to prevent a problem with regular maintenance than to ignore an issue and deal with costly repairs in the future.
Call a Professional
While you may be able to perform some heating maintenance on your own, often the best way to ensure that your heating system is running properly is to call an Orem, UT heater repair service to come and take a look. Our qualified professionals know exactly what they should look for and how to keep your heater running all winter long, so contact Western Heating & Air today.
