During the last few weeks, we’ve focused on helping homeowners get ready for the cold with heating maintenance services. (Get started with yours by signing up for our Comfort Club!) There are other steps you can take to help your HVAC system with the approaching winter, such as having a whole-house humidifier installed—and that’s another job that we’re glad to do for homeowners in the area.

Here in Georgia we’re still basking in sunny, pleasant weather at the beginning of October. We can’t expect it to stay this way for long, however, and we hope that you’ve already started your home planning for the winter.
Here’s something important to consider when it comes to the furnace that will keep you warm over the coming cold season: was it experiencing trouble when you shut it down for the last time in spring? You don’t want repair problems to linger over a season and then come back to haunt you when you need the furnace working again at the end of the year!

Our major concern for comfort during the year is keeping our homes cooled down in the Georgia heat and humidity. The winters aren’t as rough, and that’s a reason why many homeowners choose to use a heat pump for indoor comfort. A heat pump makes for a powerful cooling system during the summer, and then an efficient heating system that can deliver sufficient warmth to deal with the mild winter.

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.

When it comes to your air conditioning and heating system, the best thing you can do for both is to sign up for a regular maintenance program with a professional HVAC contractor. We offer membership in our Comfort Club maintenance program for customers who want to save money and receive the best performance possible from their home heating and cooling all around the year.

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.
Comfort Zone Heating & Cooling has 24-hour emergency air conditioning repair service available to Cumming and Roswell, GA. Call our customer service specialists at 770-213-COOL (2665) and let us know how we can help.

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. When the summer heat is higher than 90°F or 100°F, a broken AC is a potential disaster. We offer 24-hour emergency service to respond to your needs as fast as possible.
