Maintenance tools.


Our Columbia NW Heating and Air Conditioning experts highly recommend regular professional maintenance on your Scappoose home’s different systems to help ensure high efficiency and a long life span. Having our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) professionals routinely perform inspections and cleanings on your heating and cooling system, gas fireplace, and water heater esults in fewer unexpected repairs and longer system life spans.

If the time arrives where one of your systems requires the expertise of our professionals for a repair, we will address the issue in an expedient and effective manner. Most of us rely on our HVAC systems on a daily basis. It is not until they are not performing well when we recognize the convenience they add to our lives. At Columbia NW, we understand and will do all we can to quickly restore your normal routine to you.

We are North American Technician Excellence (NATE) certified and highly trained on all these in-home systems. No matter what your needs may be, Columbia NW is here for you.

What Is Preventative Maintenance?

Preventative maintenance refers to preventative care you take on a regular basis with your home’s systems, like your HVAC system, gas fireplace, and water heater. All maintenance actions our professionals perform for you, such as tune-ups and cleanings, will help your system run at peak performance on a day-to-day basis and extend its life span.

Why Maintenance?

At Columbia NW, we strongly recommend routine professional care on your systems. As with any system, regular maintenance helps to maintain longevity, efficiency, and smooth operations.
Our experts prefer to perform preventative maintenance at least once annually. The best time to schedule your appointment with one of our professionals is before you begin using it for the season. In the case of your heating and cooling system, our experts find performing maintenance on your heater in the fall before first use works by helping your system prepare for the stress of the season.

The same principle applies to your gas fireplace as well, although many Oregon homeowners like to use their fireplaces all year long. In that case, just like with your water heater which is in continual use, planning your maintenance appointment sometime during the year on a regular basis is what is most important. Consistent and proper maintenance goes a very long way in keeping your systems operating evenly.

Your HVAC Maintenance

Having your heater preventative maintenance performed before the temperature drops and you need your heater is what our Columbia NW team most recommends. The same goes for your cooling maintenance. Having our professionals out to your home in the spring before you use your cooling system for the first time in the season is the best policy.
Our experts will inspect your system, change its filter, and clean all components. Get in touch with one of our friendly team members for more details.

Your Gas Fireplace Maintenance

To keep your gas fireplace in good working order, an annual inspection and cleaning are highly recommended. Our fireplace professionals will be sure your system is ready to keep you warm and comfortable when you need it.

Your Water Heater Maintenance

No matter which type of water heater you have in your home—traditional tanked or tankless—you need routine professional preventative maintenance. Our water heater experts will inspect and clean your tank to be sure you always have hot water when you want it.

When You Need Repairs

When something happens with your system and it is no longer working as it should, you need it addressed sooner rather than later. Putting off a repair typically turns into a bigger and more expensive repair, and on occasion into a replacement of the entire system. When you schedule a repair visit from one of our experienced team members, we will respond quickly and fix your system right the first time. And since we keep many parts in stock, most times we can make the repair right on the spot.

If your system requires an emergency repair, such as no heat in the middle of the night during winter temperatures, you can rest assured we are here for you. We offer 24/7 emergency service for just such situations. We understand emergencies rarely happen during business hours, and your safety and comfort are our top priorities.

“Service man Mark was prompt and provided good information as he worked. His interaction with my family and I was impressive. His work was work, he did not make excuses or in any way try to spend extra time with the project. Before he left he made absolutely sure I was completely satisfied with his work.
It was apparent to me that his company has set standards for him to live up to and he has.

Duct Cleaning Maintenance in Portland, OR 97229

“Yesterday we had our air ducts cleaned along with a dryer vent. Mark was the technician that came out to perform the service. He was very professional, hard-working, with an enjoyable demeanor. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything he was doing before he started the process and also as we did the walkthrough to show me what he had done after he provided the service. He also told me about the Reme Halo purification system. We are interested to hear about it and are considering purchasing a unit. Having Mark in our home was a very pleasant experience. I will no doubt contact Columbia NW Heating and Air Conditioning in the future for any of our heating and AC issues. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anybody needing their services! Thank you Mark and CNWH&AC!!!”

Air Conditioner Maintenance in North Plains, OR 97133

“I highly recommend Columbia NW Heating & Air Conditioning and here’s why. After 21 years of flawless performance and only routine maintenance my Trane XE1000 failed to cool my house in late June. I called Columbia NW and scheduled an appointment to trouble shoot the unit. Two days later Nick Jones arrived to take a look. Within 15 minutes Nick had the problem diagnosed. Low Freon charge. During the preparation to leak seal and recharge the unit Nick was very professional and friendly. Being an involved home owner I asked Nick a number of questions about A/C systems and future replacement. He was informative and enthusiastic about various choices without using any of the scare tactics. He also answered questions concerning the heater, water heater, and told me about the Reme-Halo Air Purification System. Nick is the kind of service tech you want working on your heating and A/C systems.”

– Dana D.

Thank you Columbia NW!”
