Electric Furnace Services in Salt Lake City, UT by One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning

Furnaces have a long history as residential heating systems. During that time, they have made use of many different fuel sources; the earliest ones burned wood and coal. Today, two fuel sources are dominant: natural gas and electricity. Natural gas is the more common choice, but electrical furnaces have their place and role in home heating. An electric furnace that is properly sized and professionally installed should have little trouble keeping a household comfortable through some rough winter weather.

Electric furnaces need the same level of expert attention as a gas furnace. You can’t install an electric furnace on your own, nor should you attempt to repair or maintain one by yourself. And don’t let amateurs try to tackle the work either. You have the ideal professional assistance in Salt Lake City, UT only a phone call away at One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning. We are proud of our fast and effective service to take care of the home heating needs of families in the area.

Do you have an electric furnace or need installation of a new one throughout Salt Lake and Utah Counties? Then call One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning today.

Advantages of Electric Furnace Installation

Although natural gas furnaces are less expensive to run than electric furnaces and are often the first choice for many homes, there are some benefits of choosing to go electric:

  • Available everywhere – In order to use a gas furnace, you must have a connection to a municipal natural gas line. Electricity, however, is available for almost every home, so an electric furnace is always an option for heating.
  • Safety – Gas furnaces are built to be as safe as possible, but they still can create hazards from the carbon monoxide produced as a result of combustion. If this is a concern for you, then an electric furnace is a good alternate choice. They use no gas at all and are very safe.
  • Longevity – An electric furnace does not suffer from the wear that exposure to exhaust fumes inflicts on a gas furnace, and this gives it a longer lifespan. This helps offset the higher cost of using electricity. (Electric furnaces are usually less expensive to install, as well.)

We Offer Electric Furnace Repair and Maintenance

Another advantage that electric furnaces have is that they do not malfunction often (as long as they receive routine professional maintenance). But there is no way to prevent all repair issues in a furnace. If your electric furnace starts to drop in effectiveness or create higher bills, you should call on professional repair technicians to look into it. One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning has the HVAC experts on staff ready to take care of whatever problem your electric furnace might experience.

Keeping up with yearly maintenance is essential to see that your electric furnace has the longest lifespan possible, with the fewest repair problems during that time. Call us to find out more about our regular maintenance program.
