Whether you are coming home from a long, stressful day at work or you have finally collected your children from all their summer activities, the last thing you want to find is a hot, stuffy home and a broken air conditioner. One of our goals at Dana's Heating is to be sure that scenario does not happen to you. If you live in Lakebay, WA, you know the importance of having a working air conditioner in the summer.
One of the best ways to minimize the chances of having a failing air conditioning system here in Washington is through regular maintenance. Remember that you will probably be asking your air conditioning system to work 24/7 on the hottest days—it deserves to get a little TLC before the task. Call our professional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) team to conduct a thorough inspection and cleaning, so your air conditioner is ready for the big job ahead.
Besides minimizing the chances of failure, a well-maintained air conditioner will be more energy efficient, reducing your energy bills. In addition, you will also be extending the overall life of your unit, which means your air conditioning system can serve you in years to come.
However, if you find your older system is unreliable, our team can also help you select a new air conditioning system that will meet your particular needs at an affordable price.
Do you want to know the secret to maintaining a comfortable climate in your home? How about an often-overlooked way to reduce your heating and cooling energy bills? Have the air ducts, or ductwork, in your in Lakebay, WA, home inspected.
That is right, the ductwork that travels all around your home may be the cause of uneven temperature distribution—rooms which are never quite warm or cool enough and waste energy.
One of our goals at Dana's Heating is to help homeowners like you get to know your duct system better. A comprehensive inspection can help identify leaks as well as places where additional insulation can conserve heat or cooling during air circulation.
Call our trained experts to learn about our air duct services. We can identify various points of your air duct network that may require professional sealing. In addition, if your ducts run through uninsulated parts of your home like your attic, we may recommend additional insulation to help you conserve energy.
If you are struggling with uneven heating and cooling due to poorly placed registers, we can solve that issue as well. Our team can help balance how the air is distributed in your home.
When you want to learn more about air duct services and how our team can help you increase your home’s comfort level as well as save you energy, call Dana's Heating at 360.226.7369 for more details. We are ready and waiting to help. Request air duct service online today.

Your safety and comfort are probably some of your top priorities in life. Having a reliable, safe, and efficient electrical system is an important part of that plan. Whether you are upgrading your electrical service, expanding your Lakebay, WA home, or concerned about a potential problem, give our professional team at Dana's Heating a call for all your electrical service needs.
When it comes to safety, the first thing to remember is electrical work is not for the amateur. There is always risk of electrical shock or starting a fire if electrical work is performed incorrectly.
As a result, it’s worth the investment of a professional electrician when you face any electrical needs. Our team is licensed, bonded, and insured so you can have peace of mind when you hire our electricians.
If you are considering adding new systems in your home for safety’s sake, such as an alarm system, flood lighting, additional hard-wired carbon monoxide or smoke detectors, generators, or smart home technology, you will want to consult with one of our professional electricians as well. Be sure your electrical system can handle the additional load of any of these new systems or technology, both in terms of your electrical circuit breaker panel and your existing wiring configuration.
Finally, if you live in an older home, it’s a good idea to have an electrician come out and check your aging system for potential hazards and problems before they arise. Building codes change over the years, and you will want to be sure your older home is still compliant.
Building a new home or remodeling your current home is an exciting adventure for any family. If you are designing your dream home in Washington, you may be overwhelmed by the number of decisions you need to make.
One decision you do not want to make hastily is what kind of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system you will install. This is also true when it comes time to replace or upgrade your current heating and cooling system.
Many homeowners select a furnace as their heating option. If that is where you are headed, be sure to call Dana's Heating for recommendations and assistance.
Furnaces have a long history in helping families keep warm in with cold weather. Today there are a vast number of furnaces on the market. They can provide reliable heat for small, medium, and large homes as well as single-story or multistory designs. Furnaces are designed to work well in urban locations, subdivisions, or country homes.
The good news is there is a furnace designed just for your particular Lakebay, WA home. Let our professional team help you find it.
We can recommend a correct-sized furnace so you always have comfortable heat on the coldest winter days while not wasting energy at the same time. We can go over various efficiency ratings, fuel sources, and features so you get all the things important to you in a new furnace. And we can work with you on budget and timing.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
Residentialgeothermal heat pumps have been around for a very long time. They are energy efficient, are low cost in the long run, and work with nature instead of against it. Why don’t more companies talk about this heating and cooling option?
Sadly, it’s because some common myths are still circulating about geothermal heat pumps. Add that to the initial high cost and area restrictions on these systems and it’s easy for companies to stick to traditional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Here at Dana's Heating we break down the myths and open up this alternative option for our clients. So, what is geothermal heating?
In a nutshell, geothermal furnaces exchange the heat or the cold from your Lakebay, WA home with the temperature of the earth below you. Unlike the weather above, five feet into the earth, the temperature stays the same. And that energy is what geothermal heating and cooling systems tap into to keep your home comfortable. Depending on the model you consider, you may be able to heat your water supply as well with this clean, renewable energy.
On the flip side, they may cost more than traditional systems to set up and not all Washington homes or buildings will be able to use geothermal HVAC systems. While these are big considerations, they should not hold you back from considering all the options available to you.
Heat pump technology has changed a great deal since it was invented. Although it was a byproduct of a deep freezer experiment, the heat pumps of today provide an effective, efficient way to deliver heating and cooling services to homeowners in Washington.
How does a heat pump work? Heat pumps operate by transferring heat from one location to another.
In the colder months, heat pumps take heat from outdoors and send it indoors to warm your home. Then in the warmer months, they do the reverse like an air conditioner and remove the heat from indoors and move it outside. Our professionals at Dana's Heating can talk with you about your specific heating and cooling needs to see if a heat pump may be a good solution for you.
One big advantage of heat pumps is they do not burn fuel such as wood, oil, or natural gas. This means you typically reduce your energy bills in the long run, and your family’s heating and cooling needs are met in a more environmentally friendly manner.
Indoor Air Quality
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American spends 93 percent of their time indoors. It’s no wonder that poor indoor air quality can have such a detrimental effect on your health. Our professionals at Dana's Heating can test your indoor air quality as well as provide tips and services to help you improve it in your Washington home.
Common indoor air pollutants include dust and dust mites, pet hair and dander, bacteria and viruses, smoke, and chemicals from cleaning supplies and new furniture. Most heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems use an air filter to remove some of these pollutants. However, the size of particulates removed may vary depending on the quality of the filter.
Poor indoor air quality can lead to general discomfort or possibly more serious health issues. Asthma and allergies can both be aggravated by poor indoor air quality, causing additional respiratory distress.
Instead, consider having one of our air quality professionals come out and evaluate your Lakebay, WA home. Air duct cleaning, air purification systems, and HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters may be recommended as part of a remediation program. Our trained experts will also inspect your HVAC system for potential leaks of carbon monoxide and other dangerous substances.
The last thing you want to happen in the heat of the summer is to turn on your air conditioning system and find it blowing hot air or to fire up your furnace to find it broken as the mercury drops in the winter. One way to prevent this scenario from occurring is to schedule regular HVAC maintenance service calls during the shoulder seasons. Our professionals at Dana's Heating will be happy to come out in the spring to inspect your air conditioner and again in the fall to check your furnace.
Our trained technicians will perform a multipoint inspection to make sure everything is in good working order. In addition, they will thoroughly clean all the components of your system and change filters. If they discover any worn parts, they will advise replacement to avoid a costly repair later. Lubrication, tightening of electrical connections, and a safety check are included.
By investing in regular HVAC maintenance for your Lakebay, WA home, you will keep your home comfortable. In addition, you can save money on your energy bills in Washington and increase the longevity of your entire system in the long run. Maintenance inspections are usually much less expensive than emergency repair calls, saving you money down the road.
Water heaters are one of the systems in your Washington home you may be most dependent upon. Without a functioning water heater, it’s impossible to wash dishes, do laundry, and so many other daily tasks in your lifestyle you take for granted. With the water heater options available today, you should rarely be inconvenienced from a lack of hot water any longer. There are two primary options for you to consider for your Lakebay, WA home.
The first is a tank water heater. This type of water system is most commonly found in homes across the United States, is typically straightforward to install, and costs less initially. However, it’s also prone to the most common problem affecting a water heater: it can run out of hot water, be an energy sucker, and cause a flood if something should go wrong and it leaks.
Tankless systems, while they do cost more at the start, offer you as much or as little hot water exactly when you want it. These hot water systems provide you your hot water on demand. They are generally better at conserving energy and are smaller in size so they can be installed in more places than a traditional tank system.
When you are ready to explore your options or to make home water heater improvements, whether it is a replacement, new installation, repair, or maintenance, our team at Dana's Heating would be happy to help you—give us a call at 360.226.7369. Request water heater service online today.
Zone Control Systems
Technology continues to advance on all fronts today, especially in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) field. One of the more exciting new developments is zone control systems . These systems tie into your overall HVAC system; however, they provide you with superior temperature control in different zones of your Washington home.
Here’s how they work. Each zone of your home has its own thermostat, which can be programmed by day and time. As one zone “calls” your central system, automatic dampers open and close to direct the heating or cooling to that particular zone. If a second zone puts in a request, dampers adjust accordingly. Your HVAC system will continue to run until all zones reach their desired temperatures.
Our Dana's Heating team can work with you to see if your current HVAC system can work with a zone control system. In most cases, controlling temperature by zones of your home will reduce the amount of energy you consume and lower your monthly utility bills.
Gone are the days of trying to determine the optimum temperature for your entire home or trying to manually close and open vents in the middle of your daily duties. Zone control systems take the worry out of managing your Lakebay, WA home’s comfort levels and energy consumption.
Contact Dana's Heating at 360.226.7369 with any questions about zone control systems. Our team would be happy to help you determine if it’s right for you. Request zone control system service online today.
