This Part May Save You Money

Although this sounds like one of the worst issues that could happen, it is usually one of the easiest problems to fix and avoid.  By making sure you are on an annual maintenance plan, you can eliminate a lot of the stress and costly repairs that can come from neglecting your heating and cooling equipment.  Also making sure you have a ClearView Ptrap installed can save you money as well.

We are half way thru the year and just getting into the air conditioning season.  The last thing you are probably thinking about is heat, or at least heating your home.  A lot of us don’t worry about our gas furnace or heat pump until the cold weather hits, which is understandable, except if you wait too long this year, you may miss out on some extra savings.  The Oregon State Tax Credits are scheduled to be gone after December 31, 2017.

Why Is My Air Conditioner Freezing Up?

The warm weather may finally be sticking around here in Portland, OR.  The sunshine is starting to be more frequent then the rain.  That means warmer temperatures.  Time to start cranking down the indoor temperature and get that air conditioner running.  This is also the time of year where we here at Comfort Solutions start getting a lot of calls on air conditioners that are frozen.

What Does Merv Rating Mean?

What Does SEER Mean?

If you are looking at cooling your home, you may be seeing the word SEER come up a lot in quotes that you are getting, or in the research you are doing. Like many of us, you have no idea what it means. Many sales people don’t spend a lot of time explaining what it means. Instead they sell you the benefits of each unit and may barely touch on how it could help you in determining which air conditioner unit you want.


Dirty filters are a frequent source of issues when it comes to your heating and cooling system. Instead of calling an HVAC company first, you may be able to save yourself a little bit of money by checking out your filter.
