Gig Harbor, WA
Although lots of people are excited when the weather starts to warm up in the spring after a long, cold winter, that excitement begins to wane when things start getting hot and humid in the dog days of summer. Sipping cool drinks, staying in the shade, and taking a dip in the pool can help, but sometimes your body just needs a break in a comfortably air-conditioned home.
If you live in Gig Harbor, WA, you know how uncomfortable and even potentially dangerous extremely hot weather can get. Our professional team at Dana's Heating wants to be sure you have a reliable, working air conditioning system throughout the summer to keep you and your family safe and comfortable.
Most air conditioning systems have an average life of at least eight to 10 years, with many well-maintained systems lasting longer than that. As a result, investing in an air conditioning unit can be a wise investment and being sure it’s well maintained throughout the years is an even wiser one.
Our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals are well versed in all major makes and models and can help you choose the best air conditioning system for your home. In addition, we are happy to come out to inspect and clean your air conditioner to ensure it is ready for the summer, and we provide repair services if you happen to have problems during the warm months here in Washington.
Do you have a mystery in your home? Perhaps your house never feels quite comfortable in terms of its temperature even if your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is in good repair. Or maybe your family suffers many allergies or respiratory issues. Or perhaps you notice odd noises inside your walls occasionally. Your mystery may be related to air duct issues.
It might be time to have your ductwork system in your Gig Harbor, WA home inspected to see if leaks or lack of insulation may be causing your problems. All of us at Dana's Heating know that ductwork is not the first thing you think of when you are facing an HVAC issue; however, it is a vital part of your home’s heating and cooling system and often overlooked and neglected. In some cases, registers are placed in odd locations in a home, which can cause uneven cooling and heating distribution. This is something our professionals can easily address.
Most air duct systems have leaks if they are not properly sealed. These small gaps or cracks can result in hundreds of dollars in lost energy every year for your Washington home. By inviting in our air duct sealing professionals, you will start recouping your costs immediately. In many homes, uninsulated ducts can also result in energy loss, and our team can help you identify and remedy that problem as well.
Many heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) options are available on the market today. Different offerings can meet varying homeowners’ needs here in Washington. One lesser known option is a ductless system. Ductless systems are not part of a more traditional HVAC system, which allows you to customize the climate of particular areas of your home.
Our trained professionals at Dana's Heating can help you determine what heating and cooling situations may benefit from a ductless system. Common scenarios include heating or cooling a rarely used space like a guest bedroom or sunroom, as well as helping family members who prefer different temperatures stay comfortable.
Ductless systems are more expensive at the outset, but they can result in lower energy bills due to the fact the heated and cooled air does not have to travel through a ductwork system. In addition, only a very small hole is required for installation to connect the indoor and outdoor units, which means no leakage around the unit.
Call Dana's Heating at 360.226.7369 to learn more about ductless units and how they can supply or supplement your home’s heating and cooling requirements. Request ductless system service online today.
Whether you are building a new house, renovating an old one, or just looking for routine electrical repairs somewhere in between, call our expert team at Dana's Heating for all your electrical service needs.
Building a brand new home in Gig Harbor, WA can be exciting and overwhelming all at the same time. You will be able to design your place exactly as you want it, and with all the technology and electronics available today, that can be quite an adventure.
Be sure to consult with one of our professional electricians to discuss what system will be required in your new home. If you would like to install a whole-house entertainment system, have connectivity in every square inch, or utilize the latest smart home technology available, you may want to build your electrical system requirements around that technology.
If you live in an older Washington home, it may be important to reevaluate your circuit breaker panels, wiring system, and other electrical components to be sure they are still up to building codes and do not pose any safety or fire risks to you and your family.
In addition, if you are planning on adding technology or expanding your electrical needs, you will want to be sure you don’t overload your current system. Older homes were often not designed to handle the electrical loads we tend to use today.
Even if you are not planning on building your dream home right now or any major renovations, when you find yourself in need of a minor electrical repair or expansion, turn to our team of professionals.
When fall rolls around, be sure you have your winter heating system on your mind. You can save a lot of stress if you ensure your existing furnace is ready and waiting for the cold weather in Washington. If you are happy with your current furnace, be sure you schedule a maintenance visit that includes an inspection, cleaning, or tune-up.
If you are ready for a new furnace, take the time to talk with our Dana's Heating professionals about selecting the best furnace for your needs. Many makes and models are available to suit just about any home size, budget, and desired features.
Our expert team can help you size your furnace so it fits the size, design, and building material of your Gig Harbor, WA home as well as your local climate. We can also go over features such as variable speeds, air filtration, and zone heating. Our goal is to match you with the best furnace for your home and budget.
Buying a new furnace can be a significant investment, but remember that all new furnaces will be more energy efficient than old ones. That means you can recoup at least some of your initial purchase investment in terms of reduced energy bills. You may want to look at fuel prices and factor those into your final decision about a new furnace purchase.
Developments in heat pump technology have accelerated in recent years. When heat pumps were first introduced, they were nearly all air-source models and only a viable heating and cooling option in moderate climates. However, many more heat pump options are available today for Washington homeowners.
Our team at Dana's Heating can provide more details about all the heat pump options available on the market for you. Here is a brief description of current offerings:
- Air-source heat pumps move heat between the inside of your home and the outdoors, depending on the season. The heat is pushed inside during winter and outside during summer.
- High-efficiency heat pumps have excellent dehumidification capabilities for hot and humid climates.
- Mini split heat pumps are designed to work well in ductless homes.
- Split-system heat pump with built-in second stage heating, such as a furnace backup, provides more reliable heat in extra cold climates.
Since heat pumps do not need to burn fuel to create heat, your energy costs are generally a fraction of what you might pay for conventional heating services. As a result, they can save you money and reduce your overall energy consumption.
To learn more about any of these types of heat pumps, call Dana's Heating at 360.226.7369 . We would be happy to provide additional information about heat pumps for your Gig Harbor, WA home. Request heat pump service online today.
Indoor Air Quality
Breathing is something we all take for granted but is absolutely vital to our existence moment to moment. Here in Gig Harbor, WA, most of us stay indoors nearly all the time, so the quality of the indoor air we breathe should be important to us. Our team at Dana's Heating wants to help you be sure your indoor air quality is safe and healthy.
In nearly all indoor environments, dust, off-gassing from paints and carpets, and other pollutants are present in the air we breathe. Sometimes smoke and pet dander can be added to the mix. In most heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, an air filter can remove some of these pollutants. Some Washington homeowners may choose to have a high-efficiency HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter to remove even smaller particulates.
Indoor air quality problems may result in discomfort for you and your family or, in some cases, chronic long-term health issues like allergies and asthma. When you have one of our professionals come out and test your indoor air quality, you may discover areas that require remediation. New filtration systems, air purifiers, duct cleaning services, and other solutions may improve your situation.
Call our professionals at Dana's Heating. Our number is 360.226.7369 and our trained experts are standing by to help remedy poor indoor air quality issues. Request indoor air quality service online today.
Just like your car requires regular oil changes and tire rotations to keep it running smoothly, your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system will work much better if you take care of it on a regular basis. The professionals at Dana's Heating recommend a biannual maintenance checkup to keep your Gig Harbor, WA home comfortable year-round.
The best times to schedule an HVAC maintenance service call are during the spring and fall. These are the seasons when your furnace and air conditioner are probably not in full operation yet, which means they are the perfect times to get them ready for the hot summer or cold winter. In addition, these are the seasons when HVAC professionals are not constantly under the gun with emergency service calls, which allows them to provide excellent service at an affordable price.
When you call your HVAC team in Washington, you’ll be getting a complete maintenance package that includes a thorough inspection, cleaning and tune-up. That means all your components will be lubricated, tightened and checked for wear and potential malfunction. In the long-run, this inexpensive service call may save you an expensive emergency repair call, reduce your energy bills, and lengthen the life of your system.

Zone Control Systems
Imagine waking up in the morning in a nice, cozy bedroom and getting ready in a warm bathroom. As you head downstairs for your morning cup of coffee, your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system lowers the upstairs temperature until just before bedtime while the kitchen is comfortable for the next hour. Once you head out the door, the entire house goes into energy-conservation mode while you are away.
That’s a very real scenario for Gig Harbor, WA homeowners who have invested in zone control systems. One of the newer types of HVAC technologies available,zone control systems feature multiple thermostats that manage temperatures in various areas of your home. When heating or cooling is called for, a set of dampers automatically opens and closes to redirect your cooling or heating to the calling zone.
In the past, managing this task may have required physically opening and closing vents, which can damage a conventional HVAC system if doing so restricts air circulation too heavily.
Our Dana's Heating trained experts can tell you all about zone control systems and how they can benefit your Washington home.

“The heater would fire up and then shut off. Then start the process again. Rick determined that the gas level was too high therefore causing the system to overheat. It sounded like a blast furnace! After adjusting the level of the gas, it appears to be much better. This is after replacing the blower and mother board. I am happy Rick was able to come up with a solution to this problem that has been ongoing since the day it was installed! Thank you, Rick”
