We’re enjoying wonderful weather here in Georgia right now as we sail through the first week of the fall. It’s hard to imagine that there’s cold weather not far ahead… but make no mistake, it’s going to arrive, and it’s important to make certain that you home is ready for it.
Right now is a good time for you to take stock of the furnace in your home. (You probably have a furnace, since this is the most common type of residential heater in the country.) If your old furnace is coming close to the end of its service life, call us to arrange for a new installation. We’re currently offering an installation special for any size multi-speed furnace, only $1499.

Last week, we wrote a blog post about making the choice to replace an aging air conditioner. The fall is a good season to have this work done, and if you’ve decided that you are ready for a new AC installation, we strongly recommend you look into a Daikin air conditioning system.

As soon as the temperatures start to cool off a bit when we move deeper into the fall, there’ll be an opportunity to replace aging parts of your HVAC system. Start off with a heating maintenance visit from professionals so you’ll know if your heater is going to make it through the winter. But you may also wish to consider making some drastic changes with your air conditioner—such as replacing it. The mild weather in fall is a great time to have this done: you won’t have to think about it through the winter, and as soon as the warm weather comes back again, you’ll have the great AC ready to go.

We understand that as the end of the season approaches, you might feel that it’s not worth the investment in arranging to repair troubles with your air conditioner. You can worry about these problems later, after all, and if the issue seems minor, why should you rush?

As the close of summer approaches (the official end is less than a month away), you’ll start thinking about cooler temperatures and a pleasant reprieve from the heat. Your air conditioner, however, is entering into the riskiest part of its annual workload. The late summer is a period when the heat is still at high levels—it may be even hotter than the middle of the season—and an air conditioner has already handled an immense amount of operational stress from the months before. This is the “danger zone” for an AC because it’s the point when it’s most likely to run into a malfunction that will impair its cooling power, or a breakdown that will bring your home cooling to an abrupt end.
Trouble to watch for
During this stretch of summer, take any drop in the cooling ability of your AC very seriously. If it seems as if it’s taking longer for the air conditioner to get the house to the right temperature, or if the house doesn’t reach the temperature you expect, then there could be a number of issues with the air conditioner that need to be addressed. If you ignore these problems, there’s a high chance of the AC failing abruptly on you.
Another way to detect trouble with the air conditioner is if your bills take a noticeable leap up from the preceding months. This can indicate mechanical strain that requires attention from professionals. At the very least, have repairs will get your bills back under control.
Odd noises from the air conditioner are another late-season warning of malfunctions. A hissing sound often means that refrigerant is escaping through leaks. Grinding and clicking point toward a compressor that’s struggling to start the cooling cycle (i.e. “hard-starting”). And general clanging and banging warns that mechanical parts have come loose.

One of the most important jobs that we do for our customers is to come to their assistance quickly when they run into an air conditioning emergency.

As we move into the second half of the summer, we recommend that you keep a close watch on how your air conditioning system is running. When you notice anything out of the ordinary, call for our technicians right away. The sooner you have an AC problem fixed, the less likely for the trouble to spread and create bigger repair problems, or even cause the air conditioner to break down.

If you live in an older home that doesn’t have space for ductwork in its walls, you’ve probably had to rely on window air conditioning units to keep cool through our hot and humid summers. When the window AC was invented in the 1950s, it was a breakthrough in offering affordable indoor cooling for homes. But that was long ago, and central air conditioning is now the far superior option compared to the inefficient and often ineffective window units.

Keeping your Cumming, GA home cool requires a fair amount of electricity every summer. Considering how much we rely upon air conditioners to deliver ample comfort into our homes, you can count on paying far more in July and August than at other times during the year. If that bothers you, you may be looking for ways to cut down on energy consumption. There are plenty of ways to do this.
