As the hot summer days start to take a back seat to the cooler fall days, now is the best time to have your furnace checkup. iRepair Heating and Air has a more open schedule to come out immediately to do a full check up of your heating system.
Some things you can check yourself:
It is always good to have a furnace expert come out to check for serious issues like leaks or cracks in the furnace components. Call iRepair Heating and Air at 801-233-1564 and they will come right out.
It certainly is not convenient to have your home air conditioner stop working in the middle of a hot summer day. There are several things you should check first on your central air system before calling a service technician to come out and check your system.
After checking all of these items on the above list and everything seems okay, then give iRepair Heating and Air a call and they will come right out to assess the problem and get your home back into cooler temperatures.
Many homes today have old air conditioning and furnace equipment. They seem to still work okay, so the homeowners don’t feel motivated to upgrade. It is only when they break down that a homeowner will consider upgrading to a more efficient, energy-saving system. It is the unseen problems of an air conditioning or heating unit that you need to be concerned about.
Every year we hear of households in the news where the family was overcome and killed by carbon monoxide poisoning, with the root cause generally coming from a faulty furnace. Matter of fact, over 500 victims a year in the US die from this cause. Your family is precious, and needs to be safe-guarded from such a tragedy.
It is important to have your air conditioning and heating system checked annually. Cracks and loose pipes can appear from year to year. A central air specialist, like iRepair Heating and Air, can determine the safety of your unit, and advise you on the value of a new energy-efficient replacement.
Although there is an initial investment in switching over to a more energy-efficient cooling and heating system, overtime you’ll receive back your initial investment in heating and cooling savings.

Thing to do when this happens:
Now’s the time to check your home air conditioner before the hot summer days. There are several things you can check yourself without calling for a certified technician.

Here are some easy steps to take for personal inspection of your air conditioning units.
