Summer means days at the beach, picnics, and long hours in the sun. That is why it is important to have a cool place to retreat to when you have had enough of the heat. You want your home to be cool and comfortable, a place to recharge before heading back out into the heat. At Cascade Energy Services, we provide summer air conditioning tune-up and preventative maintenance in Mill Creek. We can help ensure your AC is running the way it should.
Do I Really Need an Annual AC Tune-Up?
Yes, and no. Your air conditioner may do just fine without a check-up this year, but there are benefits to scheduling one. Hidden problems may go unnoticed if you skip your maintenance check. If you are contemplating skipping the tune-up this year, consider these benefits:
- Having an AC tune-up done at the beginning of summer guarantees it works well during the hottest time of the season.
- Getting it serviced can be cheaper than having serious repairs done later because of small missed problems.
- If you do not take proper care of your AC unit, you may have problems with the warranty if something does go wrong.
- Air conditioner units last a lot longer when they are maintained and serviced regularly.
- Raising efficiency means lower cooling costs. When your AC is working at peak efficiency, it does its job better.

Take Care of Your Water Heater
While nothing lasts forever, there are things you can do to ensure your water heater works efficiently and lasts a long time. Here are some things that can help:

Who doesn’t love being comfortable in their home? At Cascade Energy Services, we know we sure do! One of the ways you can do that is with air conditioning.

Great Reasons to Have a Quality HVAC System Installed
If you are in doubt as to whether or not to have an AC installed, here are some great reasons:
- Fewer Asthma Attacks – A/C reduces humidity in the home, which reduces allergies. It would help if you changed the filters regularly to reduce allergens.
- Fewer Bugs & Parasites – Air conditioning can help keep the bugs down, such as fleas.
- Sleep Better – Being cooler always helps you sleep better.
- Exercise in a Cool Area – If you are an exercise buff, you can exercise where it is cool.
- Improves Work Performance – If you work from home, stale, muggy air can slow you down. A good AC unit can change all that.
- Stay Hydrated – Lower temps mean less sweating and therefore less dehydration.
- Quieter Home – When your windows and doors are shut, your home is much quieter.

At Cascade Energy Services, we know there are many advantages to our customers upgrading to a tankless water heater. We know there are many benefits to having one installed and would like to pass on that information to our clients. Cascade Energy Services provides tankless water heater repair, service, and installation in Woodinville that you can trust.
Much More Energy Efficient Than a Traditional Water Heater
Everyone wants to save on their bills, especially with today’s rising prices. Because they are efficient, tankless water heaters can significantly cut your monthly utility bills. They are up to 34% more efficient in smaller homes than traditional water heaters. You can save hundreds of dollars annually when you switch to a tankless system.
Longer Life Span
If you need to replace your current heater, one of the benefits of a tankless water heater is an extended life. Traditional water heaters last about 10 – 15 years. You can expect twice that with a tankless water heater.
Hot Water When You Want It – No More Waiting
The whole point of a water heater is to have hot water for bathing, washing, cooking, and more. In a traditional water heater, once the tank is empty, it has to fill back up and heat again. Tankless water heaters heat the water as you need it. No more waiting for the water to heat up, especially when rotating through showers.
While this may not be a selling point for everyone, it can be a plus if you live in a small place. The less space your water heater takes up, the more room you have for other things.

Spring weather brings with it allergy season. Sneezing, coughing, itching eyes, and other irritating symptoms. Many people ask whether air conditioning can help with allergies. Air conditioners can help control humidity in the home and filter air. Your HVAC system can help with allergies if it is properly serviced and maintained. That is why Cascade Energy Services provides air conditioning maintenance, service, repair, and installation in Snohomish County.
How Air Conditioners Help with Allergies
Things like dust or pet dander are present in your home year-round. An HVAC system with the proper filters can greatly improve your indoor air quality. The filters filter out things like:
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
- Other irritant air particles
When these things are filtered out, they do not get to your lungs. Humidity control is also important to indoor air quality, and an air conditioner helps with that. When there are high moisture levels in the air, mildew, bacteria, and mold can grow. All of which can cause health problems and, for some people, can be deadly. The key to avoiding these problems is the correct humidity ratio.
When Your HVAC System Doesn’t Help
If your air conditioner isn’t properly maintained, the air quality in your home can actually be impacted negatively. This is means your allergies will get worse. If you do not change the filters, often the trapped particles will build up. When that happens, the only place they have to go is right back into your home.
To keep your home allergen-free, call Cascade Energy Services for air conditioning maintenance, service, repair, and installation in Snohomish County. You can reach us at (425) 243-0371.
If your water heater is due to be replaced soon, or you are building and need to have one installed, you might want to think about getting a tankless model. Converting your current water heater system to a tankless system has many benefits. Cascade Energy Services provides tankless water heater repair and installation in Lynnwood. We have been servicing our community for years and pride ourselves on our customer service.
Tankless vs. Traditional – Which Water Heater is For You?
In a traditional water heater, the water is constantly heating. With a tankless water heater, only the amount you need gets heated when you need it. This translates into great savings. You use up to 34% less energy to heat your water, and your energy bill is less, which is better for the environment and your wallet. When you convert to a tankless unit, you can save hundreds annually on your energy bill.
Longer Life Span Than a Traditional Model
Another benefit of converting to a tankless water heater is it lasts 5 to 10 years longer than a typical water heater. If you maintain your system well with regular maintenance from Cascade Energy Services, your tankless system can last 20 years or even more. Combine that with the savings annually; a tankless water heater system is an excellent choice.
Other Great Benefits
Another benefit of a tankless unit is they are space savers. This makes them a great option for apartments and small areas where space is at a premium. Traditional tanks should be serviced yearly, but a tankless system can go several years without servicing.
Cascade Energy Services provides all your needs for tankless water heater repair & installation service in Lynnwood. Contact us for more information at (425) 243-0371.
A heat pump system is not a cheap investment. But they are very efficient and have a long lifespan. Most HVAC systems last 15 to 25 years, but some things can shorten that time. Cascade Energy Services provides spring heat pump tune-up and preventative maintenance in Marysville to ensure your mini-split heat pump system operates well for years.
Taking Care of Your Heat Pump System
Here are some issues that can negatively impact your mini-split system and cause it to wear out before its time:
- Defective parts – regular inspections can catch these
- Ignore maintenance – with poor maintenance, your HVAC system wears out faster.
- Improper size unit for your home
- Improperly installed – never a problem with CES
- Using it the wrong way – having it run with windows or doors open
- Extremely high usage
- Corrosive areas – salty, coastal areas
Inadequate maintenance and oversizing are two main reasons problems occur with mini-split heat pump systems. The components wear out when you do not maintain your system regularly. Oversizing can cause compressor failure or blower motor damage due to on-and-off cycling.
Preventative Maintenance Can Help
If you schedule regular maintenance, minor problems can be addressed before they become more serious and costly. Heat pump systems last longer than other HVAC systems. They are space savers and very efficient. One of the best times to have your HVAC system serviced is spring.
Professional Service Your Can Trust
For spring heat pump tune-up and preventative maintenance in Marysville, you can depend on, contact Cascade Energy Services at (425) 243-0371. Give us a call and get on our schedule for your spring tune-up and keep your system in excellent shape.
It is time to prepare your HVAC system for the summer season that is headed our way. You want your house to be nice and cool when the heatwaves begin. Seasonal preventative maintenance and tune-ups get you ready for warmer weather. At Cascade Energy Services, we provide spring air conditioning tune-up and preventative maintenance in King County that is professional and efficient.
There is a difference in seasonal tune-ups and preventative maintenance. Seasonal work is typically done in the fall and spring and ensures your AC system for the weather shift. Preventative maintenance is done annually. Your spring AC tune-up may include:
- Examining the condensate drain and making sure the flow is clear
- Inspecting, relays, capacitors, contacts, and wiring
- Examing the evaporator coil and cleaning it if needed
- Lubricating parts that needed lubricated
- Cleaning the condenser if needed
- Changing filters
- Starting up the unit
- Checking the compressor amp
Regular Maintenance is a Must
To keep your energy bills low and your HVAC system efficient, you have to keep it maintained and serviced. Seasonal tune-ups keep your AC system running the way it should. Our expert technicians watch for parts that show signs of wear and replace them. This protects against breakdowns and expensive repairs later. Better air quality is another benefit of a well-functioning HVAC system.

A heating and cooling system is a major investment for homeowners. You may be installing one for the first time or replacing your current system. It involves thought and planning to make sure you get the HVAC system right for your home. A unit that is too small will not work as efficiently and burn out sooner. One that is too big is a waste of money. A good HVAC system should last you at 15 – 25 years. When you invest in a mini-split heat pump system, you are getting an excellent system. Cascade Energy Services provides mini split heat pump maintenance, service, repair and installation in Mukilteo. We can install your new HVAC system or keep the current one in good shape.
Factors That Can Impact the Life of Your Mini Split System
Your HVAC system’s life span is going to depend on how well you take care of it. If you proved little to no maintenance, it will wear down faster than anticipated. Defective components can cause problems, but regular inspections can catch these. The wrong size unit for your home, especially one that is not big enough, can cause your unit to die an early death. Other things include:
- Corrosive locations
- Improper usage
- Extremely high usage
- Improper installation
Professional Preventative Maintenance Plans
One of the things we offer at Cascade Energy Services is routine maintenance plans. Preventative care can allow your ductless mini-split system to last well past the 15 years that is the norm. With regular inspections, small problems are addressed before they become big, costly ones. Spring and fall are the best time to get that inspection done. For mini split heat pump maintenance, service, repair, and installation in Mukilteo, call us at (425) 243-0371.
Your water heater works in the background of your home, providing hot water for showers, dishes, and laundry. When something happens that leaves you without hot water; it is no fun. Understanding when your water heater is having a problem and knowing what to do about it is important. Here are some things you should know about hot water heater repair service and installation in Lake Stevens.
You Need a Licensed Technician
Replacing your water heater is definitely not a DIY project. For one thing, you are dealing with electricity and water. Not something anyone should be messing with unless they are trained to do so. Suppose you have a gas water heater system, again not something for amateurs to deal with at all. It would help if you had a licensed technician who understands how everything works. At Cascade Energy Services, our technicians are licensed and bonded. They are familiar with the different makes and models of water heaters and how they operate. They follow all safety precautions and get the job done right.
Should I Have My Water Heater Repaired or Replaced?
When it comes to fixing a water heater, there are a few things to keep in mind. First off, how old is the tank? If it has quite a few years on it, you might be better off replacing it. How efficient is it? What is the problem? These are all factors we consider when we make a recommendation to repair or replace your system.
