More Than an HVAC Company: Anchor is Part of the Community

Although we’re not a small shop located in downtown with a storefront and local products, we are a large part of the community here in the Douglasville, GA area. In fact, we’ve been a family-run company for almost 50 years, and during all of our time in business we have been giving back to our community.

A History of Local Participation

Jack Tysor, the founder of Anchor Heating & Air Conditioning, contributed to improving the local community. In fact, he was a member of the Douglas County School Board for eight years while also running his successful HVAC business. Jack also served by contributing his time with several other organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club.

Now Jack’s son, Barry Tysor, runs Anchor Heating & Air Conditioning and continues the time-honored tradition of making sure that the business is involved in making the local community a better place.

Anchor’s Involvement in the Douglasville Area Community

We do much more than just install, repair, and maintain heating and air conditioning systems for homeowners in the community!

Just this past fall we sponsored a car in the Georgia Gravity Games — an initiative that supports science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education for Georgia students. We are also involved in donating to school music programs. Most recently, we sponsored the Eastside Elementary School’s music program.

In addition, we have participated in the Taste of Douglasville which works with the Cultural Arts Council to reach local students and provide affordable art camps. Finally, one of our ongoing partnerships is with the Arbor Station Elementary School. We help to donate gifts to raffles and sponsor contests at the school.

These and many other ways we’re involved in the community are just a small manner in which we try to give back to the neighborhoods in our area.

You CAN Afford a New, Efficient HVAC System This Holiday Season

With the holiday season fast approaching, temperatures are finally dropping here from Marietta down to Peachtree City. Will your heating system be able to keep your home warm this holiday season?

You probably have holiday shopping on your mind, but now is also a good time to consider upgrading to a high-efficiency Trane heating system. Upgrading your system will not only enhance home comfort but also reduce energy consumption and lower your utility costs all winter long. With simple financing for your heating upgrade, you can improve your home’s comfort and energy efficiency while still leaving room in your budget for all of your holiday needs.

Simple Financing for Your Heating System Upgrade

Upgrading to an energy efficient heating system doesn’t have to break the bank. A financing plan allows you to spread the cost of your new furnace or heat pump out over an extended period of time. With Anchor’s financing program, a new and efficient Trane system is within your reach; all you have to do is apply. Our special financing is provided with approved credit by Wells Fargo.

Save Even More with Energy Efficiency

Simple financing will give you major peace of mind as you upgrade your heating system, but your new system itself will offer perhaps the greatest financial benefits in the long run. This is because when you switch to an energy efficient furnace or heat pump from Trane, you can reduce your heating system’s energy consumption significantly.

When your heating system is consuming less energy, it will cost less to keep your home comfortable during the winter. It’s as simple as that. And because heating equipment from Trane is the most reliable in the industry and comes with a five-year warranty, you can worry less about costly emergency heating repairs with your new system.

Beat the Heat With An A/C Tune-Up

Spring is heating up here in the Atlanta area, and according to The Weather Channel, there’s a great deal of potential for a warmer than average spring in the south this year. With your AC having been dormant all winter long, now’s the time to ensure that it’s ready to handle the unseasonably hot weather ahead. If you don’t know where to start, you’re not alone.

So, how can you get your cooling system ready to take on the spring weather? An early bird AC tune-up is the best course of action, and the team at Anchor Heating & Air Conditioning is here to help.

Why Schedule an AC Tune-up?

Your cooling system is a piece of equipment just like any other. It’s not unlike your car in that it needs to be maintained on a regular basis in order to operate at peak performance, year-after-year. Even the best cooling systems can suffer from emergency breakdown over time, as wear and tear can result in numerous issues that can affect functionality.

For this and many other reasons, we recommend scheduling regular AC tune-ups to ensure that your cooling system is always operating the way that it should be. An AC tune-up will not only keep your home comfortable during the spring and summer months, but will also help keep your energy bills from going through the roof. Perhaps most importantly, a tune-up will reduce the chances that any type of safety issue might occur as a result of a failing AC—paramount to your family’s well-being.

Anchor: Your AC Tune-up Experts

At Anchor, we place a great deal of focus on preventative maintenance when it comes to our customers’ cooling systems. When you schedule an AC tune-up, an Anchor team member will survey the health of your cooling system from top to bottom, identifying any potential issues and making note of what they find.

They’ll take steps to make it easier for your AC to do its job, such as lubricating parts, tightening connections, cleaning filters and more. If a problem is suspected, your tune-up specialist will walk you through what’s happening and offer advice as to how you should move forward for best results.

In the end, you can expect a more comfortable home environment, lower energy bills, and peace of mind for you and your family.

Is It Time to Upgrade Your HVAC System?

Winter is an excellent time of year for greater Atlanta homeowners to think about ways in which to improve home performance. Many enjoy the cooler weather this time of year brings, as it allows them to prepare for the heat of summer. Some will remember difficulties keeping the home cool last summer, and if this is true for you, the answer may be found in upgrading your HVAC system.

How exactly can you tell if it’s time to upgrade your home’s air conditioner?

Warning Sign #1: Age

In many ways, an HVAC system is kind of like a car. When you buy it new and drive it off the lot, that “new car feel” seems like it could last forever. Obviously, this isn’t how things usually go, as repairs and maintenance are crucial to keeping the vehicle on the road year after year.

Even the most well-maintained vehicles will eventually need to be retired, and the same can be said for an air conditioning system. Air conditioners typically need to be replaced after 10-15 years, so it’s often possible to tell whether or not it’s time for an upgrade based solely on the system’s age.

Warning Sign #2: Increased Energy Costs

Have you noticed that your energy bill is on the rise with each passing summer, yet you’re not running extra equipment? This can often be a sign that something isn’t running as efficiently as it used to, and in many cases, heating and cooling systems can serve as the culprit. Having the unit inspected is a good way to determine if it’s the cause behind your energy bill increase and can also serve to isolate any other issues that might be occurring.

Warning Sign #3: Odd Noises or Smells

A general rule of thumb with heating and cooling systems is that you shouldn’t necessarily notice that they’re operating. An AC that either smells strange or has started to emit odd noises is one that simply isn’t working correctly.

Rather than allowing these types of problems to fester, it’s best to immediately schedule maintenance and see what the issue is. In some cases, upgrading to a new system may be the best solution.

Warning Sign #4: An Uncomfortable Home

Many homeowners know what it’s like to blast the AC on the hottest day of the year, all the while never being able to make certain rooms comfortable. It could be a lack of air sealing and insulation that’s causing the problem, but it could also be that your AC is either sized incorrectly or no longer working properly. Either way, servicing or upgrading your air conditioner will fix the problem in most cases.

Eliminate that One Cold Area From Your Home

Almost every house seems to have them — a space that’s always too cold during the winter and too hot over the summer. Maybe it’s a room over the garage or a bathroom that was added on at some point.

If you have an area in your home that’s always uncomfortable, what can you do? Luckily, there’s a simple solution that can make your whole Atlanta area home comfortable, no matter the season.

Add a Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pump to Your Home

Turn that area in your home around by installing a ductless mini-split heat pump. It is an energy efficient way of both heating and cooling your home.

How Does a Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pump Work?

Traditional heating and cooling systems require ductwork to heat and cool your home. They also necessitate that you have and maintain two separate units — an air conditioner and a furnace.

A ductless mini-split heat pump is different. These systems consist of two major components. The first is a unit which is installed outside of your home, and the second is a compact air handling system that’s placed inside. The two pieces are connected through tubing filled with refrigerant. This unique design allows a ductless mini-split to heat or cool, without requiring ducts to provide year-round comfort.

What are the Benefits of a Ductless Mini-Split?

Ductless mini-split heat pumps are perfect for a smaller space that requires additional comfort control. The benefits of these systems include:

  • A non-invasive, quick installation which doesn’t require any ductwork
  • Providing both heating and air conditioning
  • Superior energy efficiency
  • Supplementing an existing HVAC system to bring comfort directly to any uncomfortable areas or using several throughout the home to completely replace central HVAC
