Basics New HomeownersWelcome to homeownership! Your head is likely reeling with terms you have never heard or considered before like flush valves, aerators, and HVAC. What is HVAC, you ask?

At Western Heating & Air, we are very familiar with HVAC systems and pride ourselves on our professional and knowledgeable HVAC services.

Basic Parts

So, what is HVAC exactly, and how does it work? In a nutshell, your HVAC system is a network of ducts and vents partnered with your thermostat, air conditioner and heater. Your air conditioner, of course, cools air in warm weather and your heater warms air in the cool weather. The air that these appliances put out is pushed through ventilation ducts that run throughout your home. These ducts are equipped with outlet vents to allow the cooled or warmed air to flow into the rooms of your home. Vents are likely spread evenly to maintain a comfortable temperature.

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.
