When you can completely rely on your home’s HVAC system, you’ll find it easier to enjoy the full range of seasons in Bountiful, UT. Even the best system requires consistent care to extend its life and ensure its efficient operation.
When you have an HVAC contractor you trust, keeping your system in peak condition is easier and more cost-effective.
S.O.S. Heating & Cooling offers all of the services you need to keep your system performing at its best for longer. We offer seasonal inspections and tune-ups to ensure that your system runs well through each season. You can also count on us for emergency service, repairs, and new system installations.
Know When You Need a New Heating and AC Installation
Unless you have recently bought your home, you should know the age of your current heating and cooling system. If you don’t know or you’re unsure of the system’s age, you should assume it’s 15 to 20 years old — the average lifespan of most systems. This is also the age at which you should start planning for a new HVAC installation.
Some signs that it’s time to replace your system include:
- Frequent breakdowns
- Unusual sounds or smells
- More energy needed for the same level of comfort
- Inconsistent temperature
Some of these signs might also indicate poor preventative maintenance practices. However, if you do schedule seasonal tune-ups and these problems persist, the HVAC system may just be too old.
We can help you determine whether you need a new system, and we’ll help you choose the best type and model for your Bountiful home.
Call Us for Heating and AC Repairs
It’s important to pay attention to changes in how your heating and cooling system functions because they may indicate a need for repairs performed by a certified HVAC contractor. We can diagnose any problem and help you choose the best, most cost-effective repair option.
If you notice that your system rattles or squeals as it cycles, you should take this as a sign that you need immediate repairs. You should also call us for help if you notice condensation or refrigerant leaks, inhibited airflow, or the freezing up of your AC coils.
Your heater will need prompt service if it doesn’t provide sufficient heat or if you notice a rotten egg smell coming from the furnace.
Schedule Seasonal Tune-Ups for Your HVAC System
Your heating and air conditioning system will require seasonal maintenance to keep it running well. When you don’t keep up with fall and spring inspections, problems can go unnoticed until they lead to major mechanical failures. The accumulation of dust and debris that naturally occurs can also have a negative impact on the system’s operation.
The Fall Tune-Up
Each fall, your HVAC technician should inspect and service your heating system. This involves checking the thermostat, ducts, and blower motor for issues that will affect the operation of the system. The technician will lubricate the blower motor, tighten the fan belt, and clean the ducts. They will also calibrate the thermostat for better accuracy.
The tune-up will include a thorough inspection of your furnace as well. This involves checking the heat chamber for cracks since damage can lead to a carbon monoxide leak in your Bountiful home. They will clean carbon residue from the gas lines to ensure that your furnace properly and safely heats your home throughout the winter.
The Spring Tune-Up
Our AC services include some of the same services involved in the heating tune-up. For example, the blower motor and fan will be checked and serviced once again. We will also clean your ducts and check your thermostat. Any of the same components that the heating and cooling systems use will be checked twice per year.
The indoor and outdoor parts of your cooling system will be inspected and serviced. This involves cleaning the coils, checking the wiring and hoses, and looking for signs of wear and tear. We will clean your air filter and top off your refrigerant level, too. If there are signs of a leak, our technician will repair that problem as well.
