Workplace studies show that many factors contribute to the satisfaction and productivity of your employees. A climate-controlled work environment is certainly near the top of the list.
By working with a professional heating and cooling company such as L & J Heating & Cooling that specializes in commercial applications, you’ll be ensuring a comfortable and pleasant work environment for your staff, customers, and business stakeholders.
Providing reliable, consistent, and comfortable heat for a commercial operation can be challenging. In some cases, commercial buildings are large and winding. You may have a combination of small offices along with a large production facility.
Hiring a professional commercial heating provider is critical in finding the solution that will meet your particular building requirements. Our trained technicians may suggest commercial furnaces, boilers, or heat pumps as a commercial heating solution. Rooftop units (RTUs) can keep equipment out of sight and increase efficiency and ventilation in a West Linn commercial facility as well.
Just like a properly scaled heating system is important in the winter, you’ll want a commercial cooling system in the summer that fits your unique commercial building’s needs. If cooling systems are inconsistent, you might end up with an imbalance in your commercial operation. If you are operating temperature-sensitive equipment, this can result in downtime or machine malfunctions.
Choose a professional heating and cooling company that has experience with commercial air conditioners, heat pumps, cooling towers, and chillers to ensure you select the best solution for your Oregon commercial cooling needs. Call L & J Heating & Cooling at 971-208-7808 today.
Regular maintenance inspections and cleaning are important to keep any heating and cooling equipment in tiptop condition. However, it can be even more critical in a commercial setting because heating and cooling malfunctions can negatively affect productivity. Consider investing in a maintenance plan to automatically schedule service and take advantage of special pricing. Request commercial service online today.
If you are considering adding on a room to your Oregon home, you may be wondering about heating and cooling options. Expanding your home’s ductwork can be costly and may overburden your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. You should consider installing an efficient ductless system available today.
Ductless systems can be an excellent solution for extra rooms in your West Linn home. Since they are not connected to your HVAC system, you can provide customized climate control in selected areas. For instance, you may want to heat or cool a home office only during work hours or an elderly family member may want a bedroom warmer than others residing in the home.
A home’s duct work is often responsible for up to a 30 percent loss of energy, which means a ductless system can reduce your energy bills regularly. Since ductless units require only a small hole in the wall to install, your energy loss is minimized.
Our trained experts at L & J Heating & Cooling can help you size a ductless unit for your room or home as well as advise if one makes sense for your particular heating or cooling needs. Call L & J Heating & Cooling at 971-208-7808 to learn more about ductless units. Request ductless system service online today.
Coming into a toasty, warm home from the blistering winter wind is such a pleasant feeling. Be sure your furnace is ready for the cold temperatures by checking in with our professionals at L & J Heating & Cooling. Our trained professionals can help you select and install a new furnace, repair or inspect an existing furnace, or simply tune up your entire heating system to be sure it’s prepared.
If you are in the market for a new furnace for your West Linn home, you will have plenty of options. Today’s furnaces are designed to operate in a wide variety of climates as well as different sized homes.
The layout of your rooms and the building materials used in your Oregon home should also play a role in helping you select the right furnace for your needs. It’s important to match the size of your furnace to all these factors so you get the right amount of heat in cold weather while not wasting energy unnecessarily.
Furnaces run on a variety of different fuels so another consideration when choosing a furnace is the long-run cost of operating your furnace. Most new furnaces are designed with optimal efficiency in mind. It’s important to balance the initial cost of your furnace with ongoing energy costs.
In addition, many furnaces have special features that can help improve indoor air quality or ventilation, offer variable speeds for more consistent heat, or provide zone heating.
Gas fireplaces have come a long way in the past couple decades. There are many options available with something for every taste. A gas fireplace could be a great option for you if you are looking for that type of ambience in your West Linn home.
These fireplaces are easy for our professionals to install and look amazing. The newest models are much different than the models of even five years ago. When you add a wide variety of styles, the easy on and off switch, and the sheer coziness of a fireplace to your Oregon home, a residential gas fireplace becomes a much more appealing option.
It is worth noting that while these may seem easy to install and a tempting do-it-yourself (DIY) project, these fireplaces need to connect to a gas line. Anytime you are working with gas, you can’t take chances—installing a gas fireplace is best left to the professionals.
Finding a sustainable, efficient, and effective way to heat and cool your West Linn home can be a challenge. Fortunately, technology and developments in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) industry are making strides in this area. One solution is to invest in a heat pump for all your climate control needs.
Our L & J Heating & Cooling team can provide a wealth of information about current heat pumps available today. Just like its name implies, a heat pump simply pumps warmer air between your home and the outdoors, depending on the season.
When you want additional heat during the colder months, the pump moves heat from outside to inside. When you want heat to be removed during the warmer seasons, the heat pump pushes the heat from inside to outside.
The majority of heat pumps available on the market today are air-source heat pumps. They consume less electricity than baseboard heaters and traditional furnaces, saving you money and reducing your home’s carbon footprint. Heat pumps do not create heat by burning a fuel such as wood or natural gas, which contributes to their energy efficiency and affordability.
High-efficiency heat pumps provide better dehumidification during the warmer months, giving them a leg up over conventional air conditioners.
If you want to get more information about heat pump models for your Oregon home, call L & J Heating & Cooling at 971-208-7808 . Our team is ready and prepared to answer your questions. Request heat pump service online today.
Looking for a low-maintenance, stress-free home to return to after long, busy days at work or simply away from home? Home automation is constantly striving to make your life here in Oregon more convenient and efficient. You probably use and enjoy several simple home automation devices. Things like an automatic garage door opener, Alexa, or a smart security system likely make your life easier already.
If you’re looking to bump things up a notch, consider home automation solutions for your heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. New technology allows us to help you to build a custom HVAC system that’s designed specifically for your house. Our West Linn,-based professionals at L & J Heating & Cooling would be happy to explore options with you.
Integration of HVAC systems with home automation technology allow you to control your home environment with greater ease. You no longer need to use a manual thermostat to set one temperature for your entire house. Now, smart technology can tell which room you’re in, and adjust the temperature accordingly. And when you’re gone, you can now control your thermostat from your smart phone. Information like this allows your custom HVAC system to use your energy wisely, cutting costs by reducing waste.
As home automation technology progresses, it will be possible to create better HVAC systems with more perks. However, choosing the perfect system can be a complicated and difficult decision. Contact our trained professionals in order to create the right system for your needs at an affordable price.
Indoor Air Quality
Do you find yourself feeling tired all the time? Are you suffering from allergies, asthma, or constant respiratory distress? Although these things can originate from many different sources, poor indoor air quality is a possibility.
Our team at L & J Heating & Cooling here in West Linn wants to help you ensure a healthy home. We will come out and test the air quality in your Oregon home. If they find any issues, they can provide remediation services to help you improve it.
Everyone has dust and dust mites in their home as well as some level of chemicals released from carpeting, cleaning supplies, and other household substances. In addition, if you have pets, you will generate more hair and dander. Smoking also adds particulates to the air. All of these things can contribute to an indoor air quality problem.
Testing of indoor air quality is something we do every day. If we find issues, our experienced professionals might recommend remediation such as air duct cleaning or replacing your air filters in your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. A wide variety of air filtration and air purification systems are available on the market today as well, which can help improve your indoor air quality.
Everything has its season, and your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is no different. Your furnace puts in overtime during the chilly winters while taking a rest in the summer, and your air conditioning unit works on the opposite schedule in Oregon. Our team at L & J Heating & Cooling recommends that right before your furnace or air conditioner goes into high gear you schedule an HVAC maintenance service call.
Our trained professionals will conduct a complete inspection and cleaning of your HVAC system. Talk with us about our multipoint inspection. It includes a filter change, lubrication, pressure and safety check, and much more. You will also have a trained eye on your system so any potential problems can be caught quickly and repaired before your HVAC system stops working.
In the long run, investing in HVAC maintenance can save you a great deal of stress and money in your West Linn home. A well-maintained system will not only function better, but it will consume less energy every day. In addition, it can help increase the working life of your whole system, making it less likely you will have to invest in a new furnace or air conditioning unit prematurely.
When you are ready to schedule your HVAC maintenance visit, contact L & J Heating & Cooling at 971-208-7808 . We would be happy to answer questions or share more details. Request HVAC maintenance service online today.
Zone Control Systems
As an energy-conscious Oregon homeowner, you may have relied on diligence and basic technology to try to reduce your energy consumption at home. You may have responsibly programmed your thermostat to reduce consumption while you are at work or asleep. You may even police your West Linn home regularly, closing and opening room vents as needed. And you may take on extra inconveniences to reduce your overall carbon footprint each day.
Our team at L & J Heating & Cooling can now provide you with an easier way: zone control systems. These systems are designed to connect to your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Each zone has its own thermostat, and the system can be programmed to automatically open and shut zone dampers as the system receives temperature adjustments.
Zone control systems allow you to boost or lower the temperature of your bedrooms, for example, to achieve comfortable sleeping conditions. If you are entertaining in your main living areas, you can adjust that particular zone to manage the temperature for a greater number of people. Or, you can keep your home office zone comfortable while the rest of your home stays in energy-conservation mode during business hours.
Zone control systems, when installed properly and professionally, can help you reduce your energy consumption throughout the year while increasing your family’s comfort levels.
