4 HVAC Shortcuts That Are Lazy and Sloppy

Luna here again. (the Western Heating and Air Office Dog)

My human has been barking his head off about all of the horror stories he hears while visiting homeowners. 

He’s always surprised at how some people can do such a poor job. (If you want someone to do it right, then just call us at 801-515-2448)

But I don’t want you stuck in any ruff situations, and knowing what to look out for is half the battle. So here is my list of 4 Classic HVAC Shortcuts to Watch Out For. 

The Only Thing More Annoying Than Cats…

Everyone hates it when people make a mess out of your house. This is the #1 shortcut that some HVAC workers take.

They don’t put on shoe covers, they don’t lay down a drop cloth, and they just don’t clean up. 🙄

I may only be 1 ½  human years old, but even I know that this is a BIG “No-No”, and it is such a simple fix.

Shortcut #2- Not Leveling The Furnace Or Air Conditioner

This one is crazy to me because this can even make your furnace or AC unit break down. That’s dog-gone nuts!

That’d be like me spinning in 6 ½ circles before bed and then NOT laying down on my bed!?!? They’re just missing the whole point of getting a new unit…

#3 Not Wrapping The Supply-Side Ductwork.

If you don’t insulate your ductwork, you could be losing 10-30% of the energy used to heat or cool your home. 

Do you want to fork out an extra 30 bones a month on your energy bill?

I know I wouldn’t! (but my dog-house doesn’t have electricity so my bill is pretty low)

#4 Not Sealing All Of The Ductwork

This basically has the same consequence as #3, but you really have to be thorough to get this one done right.

This is actually why they won’t let me do ductwork… they say that “I’m distracted too easily” which seems like a little bit of a generalized dog stereotype- I mean I’m part poodle for darn sake! 

But apparently Western’s Standard is higher than the smartest breed of dogs (ever)…

To their credit, they do a TON of training and certifications to make sure they get the job done right the first time. 

But I still think they should at least give me a chance to be the world’s best part-poodle HVAC contractor.

So try to get a poodle to do your work. But if you’re stuck with humans, then I’d definitely recommend calling (801) 218-2187 so Western could help you out. 

Well I’ve got an appointment with my tail so I’ve gotta go, because I mean my tail isn’t going to chase itself!

P.S. If you find a poodle doing HVAC tell them to give me a call about a business opportunity.

Devante was incredible! Very professional and polite the entire time. Answered all questions we had and worked hard to figure out the problems we were having with our AC. Absolutely loved having him help us out.

They were a little late past the window that was given but the service was excellent and communication about options and pricing was transparent and fair. Payment is easy using a tablet to sign and pay with a card. Taylor was friendly, funny and professional, along with the guy he was training whose name I can't recall. I would use this company again, but I would like to see them work a little more on their time boxing.

They came and replaced a capacitor that lost charge, with a new one. They arrived earlier than scheduled which is always welcomed when your AC is out in 90-100°weather. The technician was friendly and quick. Not sure if it was the best value around but at least reasonable. I would still recommend them for least simple repairs/maintenance.
