Here in Turlock, CA, we definitely tend to think more about our air conditioners more than our heating systems when it comes to HVAC systems. That’s totally understandable, given that we tend to use our cooling systems the majority of the year. However, that doesn’t mean your heater should be ignored. After all, when temperatures drop to a certain point, you’ll be just as grateful for your heating system as you are for your AC.
Although there are obviously a number of differences between your heating system and air conditioner, there is one thing they both have in common—one HVAC service in Turlock, CA that they both vitally need. And that’s professional maintenance services, otherwise known as HVAC tune-ups.

When it comes to improving your indoor air quality, there are a lot of factors to consider. Of course, your HVAC systems play a large role in keeping your household comfortable, but the temperature of your living space is just part of the equation. Without the right indoor air quality solutions in place, anyone in your family could find their spring allergy symptoms exacerbated.
You might be wondering, “Isn’t that what the air filter in my HVAC system is for?” This filter—the one that comes standard with your HVAC upon installation—is there to protect the inside components of that system, not your indoor air quality. It will do little to protect your family from the pollutants and contaminants and irritate the sinuses and make allergies act up. So, what can you do?

The heating season is nearly over in Turlock, CA, but our team is still servicing heaters throughout the area. On hearing this news, some locals might think, “Why now? It’s nearly spring!” But that actually makes for an ideal time for furnace repair!
Think about this: technicians are not super busy around spring so you can get service as soon as you need it or schedule in advance on your own time. Besides, waiting too long for heater repair can be problematic, for many reasons:
- The problem can get much worse.
- You might eventually need emergency heating service at an added cost.
- The heater may be completely broken down the next time you need it.
Don’t wait to schedule heater repair for these 4 issues!

Many of us just don’t realize it because we’re too busy around the house to notice much about the heater’s operation until the bill finally comes in the next month. You shouldn’t just deal with the high prices or shut your heater off completely to avoid this. There’s usually an explanation!

We know you do your best to keep your home clean. But as much as you dust the ceiling fans or remind your children not to track mud in on their shoes, you cannot keep dirt out of your home altogether. Dust and dirt collect on surfaces and also become airborne, no matter how hard you try to prevent it. Thankfully, there’s a filter in place in your home heating and air conditioning systems to prevent dust from harming your systems…for the most part.
Dust is a major source of trouble for air conditioners and heaters, even when you have an air filter in place. In fact, sometimes the filter is the reason for the trouble in the first place!

If you have not yet caught the flu during this rough season, consider yourself lucky. This is one of the worst years in memory for flu hospitalizations. It’s important to take every precaution you can to protect yourself, your kids, and all the people you see every day. Remember, the young and the elderly face much greater risks than you do, and you should do whatever you can to stay safe.
The CDC recommends, “Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season.” Because the flu shot may not be 100% effective, though, you may have to take additional measures. We recommend doing everything you can to prep your home, in order to protect your family.

The air ducts are the gateway from your home’s air conditioner and heating system to the rooms of your home. The ductwork allows air to get sucked into the system in the first place and then to be distributed throughout the home as evenly as possible—if it’s in good shape.
But the fact of the matter is that most air ducts are not. The ductwork is likely something you know little about, even in your own home, and it could be bent out of shape (figuratively or literally). This is the first topic we’ll cover in our guide to what we think homeowners should know about the air ducts.
