It’s officially fall here in metro-Atlanta and we’re definitely enjoying the break from the blistering heat. Unfortunately, college football, apple picking, and other festive fun will come to an end and winter will be here before we know it. Is your home ready?

At Anchor Heating & Air, we can help prepare your Marietta-area home for the colder months! Our comprehensive heating services can ensure your home stays comfortable, healthy, and energy efficient all winter long. Keep reading to see how you can get started today.

1. Test Your Heating System

Our team always recommends turning on your heating system in the fall for testing. This way, you’ll have plenty of time to notice and schedule heating repairs before you really need your heating system in the winter. To do this, simply set your thermostat a few degrees to kick-start your furnace or heat pump. If you notice any red flags, like strange noises or smells, give Anchor a call to have your system thoroughly inspected. 

2. Schedule Heating Maintenance

Regular heating maintenance is one of the most important things you can do to keep your system running efficiently. In fact, annual tune-ups can even help to extend the lifespan of your heating system! Anchor makes maintenance easy with our EZ-Pay Program. For less than $20 a month, you can get 2 maintenance visits per year (cooling in the summer and heating in the fall), 10% discounts on repairs and upgrades, and 24-hour emergency services. 

3. Install a Smart Thermostat

Replacing your thermostat with a smart or programmable model can help bring your home comfort and energy savings to the next level. At Anchor, we install Trane smart thermostats which give you access to your Trane furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump from any device with an internet connection. You’ll be able to adjust the temperature, schedule changes to improve your comfort, and even reduce your energy usage for heating and cooling!

4. Upgrade your Heating System

If you’re having issues with your heating system, it may be time to consider a replacement. We’ll usually recommend a heating system replacement if your system is more than 10 years old and has recurring issues or if the cost of repairs is more than half of that for a newer model. 

Whether you’re looking for a conventional furnace or an energy efficient heat pump, the experienced team at Anchor is trained to find the right system for your home and install it correctly. Plus, we install Trane heating systems, so you can rest assured that you’ll have one of the most advanced HVAC systems on the market today. 

5. Breathe Easier by Installing an Air Purifier

We all spend more time indoors during the colder months, but did you know that according to the EPA, indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air found outside? We install state-of-the-art air purification systems that can help you get ahead with indoor air quality before flu season hits. We also carry a wide variety of air filters for any HVAC system that can aid in keeping your indoor air clean and healthy.
