Another important benefit of routine maintenance is the opportunity to address small problems before they become serious issues. It’s much easier to schedule a furnace tune-up at your convenience than to deal with an emergency in the middle of the night. By allowing our highly skilled technicians to inspect, clean, and calibrate your heater, you can enjoy lower heating bills and peace of mind. A properly tuned system will run much more efficiently, and we can often catch problems early before they develop into an emergency issue during the cold winter weather.
Routine furnace or heat pump maintenance includes:
Service from highly trained NATE-certified technicians
- A thorough inspection
- Checking the thermostat
- Replacement of worn or damaged parts
- Cleaning components and changing the filter
We inspect air filters to make sure they aren’t clogged or dirty, and also do a thorough check of all of the major components for proper operation. The dirt and debris that accumulates in your heater will be cleared out for optimal efficiency, and you can expect us to be diligent and meticulous throughout the entire process.

Not only can you reap the benefit outlined above, but scheduling an annual furnace tune up can help increase the lifespan of your heating unit so you make the most of your HVAC investment. The cost of maintenance is much less than the cost of a full repair should a catastrophe happen, and ensuring that all the components of your system are in working order can prevent unnecessary stress and additional strain on your budget.
Regular maintenance is not only good for your budget, it is important for your health and comfort as well. During our furnace tune up services in Salem, we can also examine your indoor air quality and make recommendations to prevent allergy flair ups, illnesses, and other respiratory issues associated with poor indoor air.

Why should I get a new HVAC system?It can often be difficult for home and business owners to tell if it’s time to upgrade their heating and cooling system. Loren's Heating & Air can assist you in this process. We want you to understand the pros and cons of continuing to repair and maintain your current system versus upgrading and making the investment in a new system. Some of the most important things to consider are increased energy efficiency, updated components, rebates and incentives, better home comfort and indoor air quality, and more effective heating and cooling.
Why are air conditioner efficiency ratings important?In 2006, the Federal Government made it mandatory for all central air conditioning systems to have a minimum SEER of 13. SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, is a measure of the cooling system’s performance. On the highest end of performance, cooling units are rated as high 23 SEER. As with anything, the better performance, the higher the cost. For a system with moderate to good efficiency, you should look for a model with a SEER rating of between 14 and 18. The EER, or the Energy Efficiency Rating, provides an indication of the cooling capacity of the system that you’ve had installed. The higher the EER number, the better the system’s cooling capacity.
What are the different types of air conditioner refrigerant?If you have an air conditioning system that requires the old type of refrigerant, R-22, your system is still usable but only reclaimed or recycled R-22 can be used to service your air conditioner. R410-A is now the required standard for newer systems and has less environmental impact relative to the older refrigerant. Eventually, you will need to replace your air conditioner with one that uses R410-A, or have it modified so that it can use R410-A. The type of refrigerant your AC uses is only one of many reasons to consider upgrading, and if your existing unit is outdated, now might be a good time to look into having it replaced to boost energy efficiency, lessen environmental impact, and make sure you are operating a safe system. Not only will an upgraded cooling system make it easier to have your unit serviced, but it’ll also save you money on your annual cooling costs. Loren's Heating & Air in Salem, OR, offers the highest quality air conditioner replacement services.
How is furnace efficiency measured?Furnace energy efficiency is calculated with the AFUE, or the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating. The AFUE is a rating that compares how much heat a furnace will produce relative to the amount of energy necessary to produce the heat. If a furnace is rated at 85 percent AFUE, it means 15 percent of the energy used is lost and 85 percent actually becomes heat for your home or business.
What is indoor air quality and why is it important?Indoor air quality, or IAQ, is a measurement of the amount of airborne particles and pollutants inside your home or building. Because properties are being constructed to be more energy efficient, they are also becoming more airtight, meaning that fresh air often does not have a way to enter and circulate. This is one of the reasons why the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that indoor air can be 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air, leading to a host of allergy and respiratory issues. Fortunately, IAQ products such as air filters, air purifiers, and humidifiers work in conjunction with your central AC and heating unit to decrease the prevalence of dust, dander, bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and other potentially harmful particles in your indoor air. Our team can work with you to find the right solution to fit your needs.
