Duct Cleaning

Duct Cleaning

Our duct cleaning system works by using a negative air system that pulls a negative pressure on the entire duct system. A spinning brush and/or a high pressure air whip are fed into the other end of the duct which breaks loose the debris, allowing it to be drawn back into the vacuum. We then fog each duct with a disinfectant and deodorizer to make sure the system is fresh and clean.

We highly recommend setting up an appointment for an evaluation at no cost before scheduling the work. This will allow us to inspect the system to make sure there are no surprises when the cleaning crew shows up. An average size home will take about half of the day to clean. We also offer discounted maintenance for the equipment at the time of the cleaning. Please contact us today to set up your free duct cleaning consulation. in Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Marin County, San Rafael, Sonoma County and beyond.

Air Conditioners

Air Conditioners

Air conditioning is one of the ways Trane really stands out. Their compressors are the best in the industry. They have a full line of air conditioning systems that range from simple and reliable to the ultra efficient high SEER equipment that is so quiet you can barely tell it is running. Trane’s air conditioner line is also quieter than most other brands across their entire model lineup and they offer a top that reduces noise even further as well as keeping leaves and other debris out of the machine.

We believe the quality of the installation is as important as the quality of the equipment. Refrigeration systems must be installed using proper testing and evacuation methods to ensure a long and efficient life. At JW Hanson Heating & Air, we always presssure test at a minimum of 200 psi followed by a Nitrogen purge and pulling a deep vacuum on the refrigeration piping. If these steps are not done, the system will not last regardless of the quality of the equipment. These are details that we are proud to deliver on all of our installations to make sure your air condtioner operates to the best of its ability for years to come. Please contact us to request a free estimate for your air conditioning replacement or new installation services in Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Marin County, San Rafael, Sonoma County and beyond.

Boilers

Boilers

Heating with Water

Boilers are used in generating heat both for residential and commercial applications. They are becoming a common power plant for central heating systems. They are replacing forced-air furnaces or wood burning stoves as an economical and efficient way to heat the home. Boilers operate by way of heating water/fluid to a preset temperature and circulating that fluid throughout the home typically by way of radiators, baseboard heaters or through the floors. The fluid is in an enclosed system and circulated throughout by means of a motorized pump. Most new systems are fitted with condensing boilers for greater efficiency. The name can be a misnomer in that, except for systems using steam radiators, the water in a properly functioning hydronic boiler never actually boils.


Hydronic systems are being used more and more in new construction in North America for several reasons:

  • They are more efficient and more economical than forced-air systems (although initial installation can be more labor intensive than a traditional forced-air system).
  • They provide more even, less fluctuating temperatures than forced-air systems.
  • They do not dry out the interior.
  • They do not introduce any dust or allergens because there is no air circulation.

Installing Radiant Heat in your Existing Home (Retrofitting)

There are options to adding radiant heat to your existing home. The first step is for us to come to your home and evaluate the most effective way to add radiant heat. Radiant floors can be installed upstairs and downstairs. Radiant floor heat can be used as your only heat source, or it can be used in conjunction with a warm air furnace, boiler or heat pump. For more detailed information please contact us.

Other Advantages of Radiant Heat

“Comfort” is a state of mind rather than a read-out on a thermostat, but most experts agree that people prefer the consistent warmth of radiant heat over heating the surrounding air through conventional means. Radiant heat can be more efficient, less expensive to operate and is very quiet.

Generators

At JW Hanson Heating and Air, we strive to offer the best in equipment availability. As Kohler dealers, we are able to offer the most reliable household generators at competitive prices. We provide service, scheduled maintenance and installation. Keeping your generator well maintained is the first step in assuring it will be up and running delivering clean power during an outage.

What are some considerations when choosing a home generator?




1. What are the benefits of installing a whole home generator?

  • Safe, clean backup power during electrical outages
  • Provide fail-safe assurance for family members with critical life-support equipment such as ventilators or oxygen equipment
  • Protect your home when you are away (keep the heat running so your pipes don’t freeze, keep your refrigerator and/or freezer running, etc.)
  • Safeguards against power surges when the electricity goes on and off
  • Keep your sump pump running to prevent flooding under your home
  • Maintain the comfort you expect in your home

2. What is the cost of installation?
Portable Generators can be purchased online or at your local “big box store” and would be set up directly by the client. Professional installation is not required or recommended, as there is no real installation required for Portable Generators. Standby Generators can also be purchased online or at a “big box store” and installed by the client. However, having a Standby Generator professionally installed will allow you the piece of mind that the installation is being done correctly! You are not only dealing with high voltage electrical, natural gas or propane, but all the controls that are necessary for the unit to start up. A professional installation also allows for a longer warranty from the manufacturer and your professional installer will be able to take are of anything that might come up during the installation.

3. What will your fuel source be?
Natural Gas? Propane? What is the difference? Natural Gas does not require any tank refilling. The generator is connected to the gas line that serves your home and will run for as long as you need it.

4. How much power does your home need?
How many bedrooms do you have? How many bathrooms do you have? What appliances do you want to back up? Is your furnace important? Is your air conditioner important? As a Kohler generator dealer, these are all questions that we can help you answer during your consultation. We are happy to help you figure out what is important when it comes to properly sizing your new generator.

5. How do Standby Generators work?
When your utility power Is lost, the generator senses the disruption. If your generator has an ATS (Automatic Transfer Switch), the generator will automatically switch your home power over within 10 seconds. If you have a manual transfer switch, the generator will need to be switched over manually. Once the utility power is restored, the ATS will disengage and the generator will switch off. If your generator does not switch over manually, the homeowner will need to turn off the generator when the power is restored. Your generator will run a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly exercise to ensure readiness when an emergency arises.

6. Do you need a portable or a standby generator? What is the difference?
Portable Generators are great for travel or recreational activity, but is it the best decision for your home? For home use, portable generators can be sized to allow you to power just the necessities when the power goes out, such as the refrigerator and freezer. As a consumer, you would plug your appliance into the generator and run as long as necessary. They are generally gas driven and the fuel must be maintained if it is running for a long period of time. Standby Generators are great for residential or commercial use. Standby Generators are permanent pieces of equipment that are sized properly in order to power your entire home when the power goes out. They are tied into your existing gas source (natural gas or propane) and can be set up to switch over the power automatically when the power goes out.
