What Happens During Professional Heating Maintenance?

Monday, January 10th, 2022

animated-checklistLiving in Georgia, we’re known a lot more for our hot and humid summers than we are for our chilly winters, but that doesn’t mean the colder months don’t pack quite the punch! That said, it stands to reason that you really want your heater to work as effectively and efficiently as possible while keeping your family comfortable. This means that you’ll want to schedule routine professional heating maintenance each year. We typically recommend this service in the fall, before the cooler temps arise, but this is definitely a case of “better late than never,” even if you’re reading it right smack in the middle of winter.

There are some very basic heating maintenance tasks you can do on your own, and that you should do on your own. This includes replacing the furnace or heat pump air filter every 1-3 months, in addition to ensuring that the space around your heater’s outdoor unit is clean and clear of debris and clutter.

This is just the beginning, though. A much more thorough maintenance session is required if you expect your heating system to continue to operate as powerfully and efficiently as it is meant to. Read on to learn more!

Are You Using Your Air Conditioner Efficiently?

Monday, August 23rd, 2021

two-technicians-working-on-outside-ac-unitMaybe you think something like this is out of your control. HVAC systems account for half of all energy use in a home, so how could you possibly use yours efficiently? Is this an oxymoron?

No, not at all! The truth is, many homeowners in our area are not using their air conditioners as efficiently as they could be, and as a result, they’re paying a lot more than they should have to on their utility bills.

Now, one of the ways to boost efficiency is going to cost a little money–but it’s less costly than having surprise breakdowns or inefficient system operation. And that’s maintenance. Every year, you should have air conditioner maintenance professionally done. It allows us to fully inspect, clean, and adjust the components that need it to help boost system efficiency.

But there are other steps that don’t cost you anything at all or at least only cost you pennies, to implement. Read on as we uncover what they are!

If you haven’t done so already, now is the perfect time to ensure that your air conditioning system is fully ready to handle the higher temperatures. Of course, for some homeowners this might mean that it’s time to invest in a new air conditioning system altogether. If this is the case for you, then you’ll want to make sure that your new cooling system is the right fit for your home.

However, we really encourage you to carefully consider your air conditioner purchase. Bigger isn’t always better! Size and power do matter of course, but perhaps not in the way you’d think.

Keep reading as we dive into what different sizing means for your air conditioner, and why you don’t want an underpowered or overpowered air conditioner in your home.
