They were great to work with. The technician was extremely helpful. Everything that the technician helped me with he explained to me what it was and why he was doing it. I would highly recommend these guys!
Congratulations on your fantastic business model that promptly dispatches such skilled professional techs! ETHAN Your Tech is all 5 bright STARS!! And a raise in there somewhere. HE SAVED us after we spent 4 days during this 4th of July weekend in the torrential heat waves with not one business able to send someone for weeks or even so much as a return call!! SO SUPER IMPORTANT TO NOTE WE FORTUNATELY HEARD OF LEES 15+ YEARS AGO WHEN THEY WERE RECOMMENDED BY MANY NEIGHBORS AND HAD THEM REMOVE OUR SWAMP COOLER AND THEY INSTALLED THEIR RECOMMENDED CENTRAL AIR UNIT. WITH SOME RESEARCH WE FINALLY STUMBLED ACROSS THE RECEIPT CALLED THEM AND HERE YOU ARE A++!!
Installed a Mitsubishi mini split system. Installation was very professional. It took two servicemen two days. The mini splits work amazing. Each room has its own control. So much better than a swamp cooler. Lees was amazing to work with. Thank you
Thank you Lee’s Heating and Air! My Central Air Unit went out. Nick quickly responded and installed a new unit. Nick made the process so easy and answered all of my questions. Once the unit was installed Nick gave me a quick tutorial. The next morning I received an email with my warranty certificate. Lee’s filled out the warranty information for me and submitted it.
AC died on us. I called in the morning, they sent someone over that afternoon to look at it. Had a new unit installed the next morning. Easy to work with, professional and friendly. No pushy sales and all the options were explained. Same people did our furnace this past winter.
Lee's techs have always been prompt, courteous, and professional. It was a surprise to learn the device/maintenance call pricing had been increased to almost double the previous rate 9of $59. The staff should inform customers up front of any service price increase. Thanks for the advice visit.
Lee’s replaced my furnace and AC coil 6 years ago but I’d forgotten who did the work. I had another company come out and do a $29 system check because the AC was freezing up. The other company told me the system was low on coolant and that it was leaking and that my blower was going out too. Thousands of dollars for a repair. Fortunately I remembered Lee’s did the work 6 years ago and I called them for a second opinion visit for free. The technician Dustin concluded my system was fully charged (other company didn’t even attempt to check it - they just assumed) and that our problem was likely that the cold air was just cycling back through the humidifier and causing the coil to freeze. The fix was to put a towel in the duct to block the cold air from going to the return - no cost repair - no income to Lee’s. If that didn’t do the trick they’d come out and do more extensive testing. I’ve waited two days and it’s holding strong. I’ll definitely reach out to them for future HVAC needs.
I have to give a 5 star shout out to this company. I don't live near the Salt Lake area but I emailed them to ask their advice about a water softener, and they were kind enough to email me back. They had no obligation to respond since I'm not even in their service area, but I am very thankful that they did because they helped me make a decision on a product. Thank you Josh!
Lee’s Heating and Air Conditioning have taken care of our furnace and AC for many years. The service has always been top notch. Very nice technicians who take the time to educate you about your system. When they install things it always looks neat and tidy. That shows they know their stuff. ????
One of the simplest things you can do to save your money and time while keeping your home at a comfortable temperature is to regularly change or clean the furnace filter.
When was the last time you changed the furnace filter? Having a clean furnace filter is important for the health of your home heating system. So make sure you check your furnace every month and clean the filter frequently.
What’s the Role of a Furnace Filter?
Homeowners often neglect the furnace filter for months on end. This can not only reduce the efficiency of your furnace but can also cause a wide range of problems. The furnace is responsible to pump heated air throughout the house and the furnace filters are responsible to keep that air clean. Without a clean furnace filter, the indoor air quality will reduce drastically and you can see dust and particles floating in the air.
Moreover, apart from reducing the indoor air quality, dirty air filters can also cause the furnace to overheat. This can lead to a number of expensive heating issues. So if you want to improve the air quality, heat your home efficiently, and prevent your furnace from breaking down unexpectedly, make sure to replace the filters as often as possible.
Reasons Why You Should Replace Dirty Air Filters
Here are a few reasons why you should replace your furnace filter often.
Dirty air filters make an inefficient system
If your furnace is not able to maintain the temperature of the house, there are high chances that the filters are logged. It is important to replace the filters to make sure your furnace is running as efficiently as possible.
When the filters are clogged with dust, debris, and contaminants, they make the furnace work harder. This increases your energy bills and drains your budget. Changing the filters is a simple and quick alternative.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
Dirty air filters allow dust, contaminants, and dander to keep circulating through the home. This can drastically decrease your indoor air quality. This can lead to allergies, asthma, or other respiratory concerns. A clean furnace filter is recommended to trap these contaminants so that you and your loved ones stay safe.
Harm the Furnace
Clogged air filters often make the furnace work harder resulting in increased energy bills as well as reducing the life span of the system. The system can overheat and burn out leading to premature failure of the system.
Clogged air filters are one of the reasons why people call us when their furnace stops working in the middle of the night. Instead of replacing your system, you should opt to change the air filters often.
Increased Maintenance Cost
Clogged air filters not only lead to system failure in the long run but can lead to costly maintenance services. The blower can stop working unexpectedly. The ductwork needs to be cleaned regularly due to dusty air circulating in the house.
So instead of spending your money on costly repairs, you should invest your time and money in changing the filters at regular intervals.
Healthier Air Quality
The purpose of furnace filters is to keep the dust particles, pollen, bacteria, and other contaminants out of the air you breathe in. When the filter is clogged, it is unable to perform its primary function. Moreover, bad air quality can be trouble for those with a compromised immune system.
How Often Should The Furnace Filter Be Changed?
This is one of the most commonly asked questions. However, the frequency to change the air filter depends on your furnace, but it is recommended to change the filter every 2 months during winters.
If you have a reusable filter, clean it every few weeks. Moreover, if you have pets or people who suffer from asthma at home, you should change the filters more often.
Benefits of HVAC Preventative Maintenance Services
Various government agencies such as the EPA recommend having maintenance done on your equipment every year.
Regular maintenance is also required to validate your Manufacturer’s Warranty. A tune-up on your A/C in the spring and your furnace in the fall is key to retaining a working and efficient unit.
Increased energy efficiency
Fewer repair needed
Saves you money on utility bills
Longer equipment lifespan
Often HVAC problems we encounter are the result of insufficient or improper maintenance. Your system needs to have adequate airflow to function properly. Something as simple as a dirty filter can cause your motor to work harder to circulate the air and may cause premature failure of many different parts.
A lack of proper maintenance can cause a variety of problems up to and including overheating or at worse cracked heat exchangers. Many of these issues not only will decrease efficiency but can potentially be harmful if there is a carbon monoxide leak.
