Harvest the Benefits of Early Heating Maintenance

Fall is here. Is your furnace ready? Schedule early maintenance for your furnace so you can start reaping the benefits now!

Increase Home Comfort

A well maintained heating system stabilizes home temperatures and keeps you warm no matter the temperature outside. A tune-up for your furnace will make sure your heating system is ready to do its job of keeping you and your family comfortable in the months ahead.

Prevent High Heating Bills

An inefficient heating system uses more energy than it needs to and generates high heating bills as a result. Regular maintenance for your heating system will ensure that it’s running as efficiently as possible, saving you money on your heating bills.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

A malfunctioning furnace can introduce carbon monoxide and other toxins into your home. During a heating tune-up, we will test for carbon monoxide and make sure your furnace is bringing the cleanest possible heated air into your home.

Prevent Breakdowns & Repairs

Nothing is worse than having your heating system break down in the dead of winter. Scheduling a heating tune-up now will extend the life of your system and prevent the need for costly repairs later on.

Early Bird Furnace Maintenance Before it Gets Cold

Although summer’s over, the temperatures here in the greater Atlanta area haven’t signalled fall entirely. However, before we know it the mercury will drop along with the leaves.

It’s important you’re prepared or else you might be left shivering in a home that isn’t heated properly. Fortunately, by being an early bird with your furnace maintenance you’ll be ready for whatever the temperatures bring.

Why Does Furnace Maintenance Matter?

It might seem premature to call in a professional to tune-up your furnace before it even gets cold outside, however, you’ll be saving yourself headaches in the future and taking advantage of all the benefits as soon as you switch on the heat.

  • Comfort during the cold weather

Servicing your furnace now will ensure it’s able to run throughout the winter, so you stay warm and toasty on the days it matters most.

  • Prevention of high heating bills

A furnace tune-up helps your system run efficiently, so you don’t waste energy or money paying for a home that’s not as cozy as you’d like.

  • Healthier indoor air quality

When an expert comes to service your furnace, they’ll either clean or replace the air filter entirely. This will keep the warm air that circulates throughout your home cleaner and healthier for you and your family. In addition, during maintenance, the venting will be checked so you can rest easy knowing that carbon monoxide from your furnace isn’t endangering your household.

  • Minimized chance of breakdowns and costly repairs

Just like a car that gets regular oil changes and service is less likely to break down unexpectedly, a furnace that’s well-maintained also reduces the chances of surprise failures. While a tune-up will cost a small amount up front, it’s worth it to avoid expensive repair costs down the line.

Boost Convenience & Comfort with a Maintenance Agreement

With everything you have going on, it’s hard to remember about maintaining your HVAC systems. However, a maintenance agreement makes it easy. For less than $20 a month, our EZ-Pay program helps you gain peace of mind while saving you money on your heating and cooling bills.

Is My AC Too Small For My House?

The heat and humidity here in the greater Atlanta area aren’t slowing down yet. How well is your air conditioner performing?

A Bigger AC Isn’t Always Better

A bigger air conditioner is more powerful and does a better job of cooling your space, right?

Actually, an AC unit that’s too large will be less efficient at making your home comfortable and can cause various other issues.

How Your AC Affects Humidity

Apart from just cooling your home, your AC is supposed to reduce humidity. An air conditioning system that’s too large will cool your home too quickly to effectively reduce humidity, so your living space will stay sticky and uncomfortable.

With all this additional moisture in the air, your home might be prone to mold and mildew growth which will affect the health of you and your family. On top of indoor air quality concerns, having an air conditioner that’s too large can result in increased energy bills and greater wear and tear that ultimately reduces the longevity of your system.

Considerations for Choosing the Right Size Air Conditioner

For your air conditioner to keep you comfortable without the potential for additional issues, it needs to be right sized. So what factors need to be considered?

Efficiency Rating of Your AC

As air conditioners are becoming more energy efficient, they are also becoming more powerful. It’s necessary to take into account how efficient the system is before simply selecting the largest one possible.

How Big Is Your Home?

The same size system shouldn’t be installed in a home that’s 1,200 square feet if it’s really made for a space of about 4,000 square feet. Make sure you consider the size of your home when choosing an air conditioner.

Cooling Load Calculation

The rate at which an AC must remove heat to keep the humidity and temperature steady is known as the cooling load. Components of calculating the cooling load of your home include:

  • Occupants
  • Home appliances, equipment, and lights
  • Infiltration of hot outdoor air
  • System heat gains
  • Ventilation

Since every home has a different cooling load, a professional must first calculate the one specific to your space so that the right size air conditioner can be installed.

Getting the Right Size Air Conditioner with Help from Anchor

If you’re not sure about why your AC isn’t performing the way it should be — the sizing might be off. The team at Anchor Heating & Air Conditioning will be able to determine exactly what size system your Douglasville, GA area home needs and then expertly install it. We carry the best selection of Trane systems and will make sure you have the unit that is perfectly selected for your space!
