Our mission is to help local homeowners stay comfortable through all seasons. But that isn’t always easy if your home isn’t set up for comfort. Some local homes were designed without any ductwork, which means no means of ventilation through which to bring warm or cool air.
The good news is that there is a way for nearly any home to get heat throughout, without the hassle of hooking up portable or temporary heaters and without the need for major renovations: ductless heating and cooling.

Many people struggle to make their homes more efficient, especially during the coldest and hottest months of the year, when you have your home comfort equipment running all day and night. There are many ways that you could improve efficiency, allowing your heating and AC equipment to operate more smoothly, but it’s difficult for the average homeowner to pin down just what needs to be done.
That’s why you should schedule an energy audit with a qualified heating and air conditioning technician to find out what improvements you can make to your home together. Learn more in the guide below or call one of our friendly team members.

Properly-sized, well-maintained furnaces are some of the most efficient heating systems for homes in Decatur, GA. But how can you tell if your heating system is safe? Luckily, today’s heaters are safer than they’ve ever been before, with safety switches and extra precautions to prevent problems with carbon monoxide (CO) leaks or overheating.
Still, there is always a small chance of danger, especially if your heating system and home do not get the attention they need. Here’s how you can tell if your furnace is safe.

Many of us are still adjusting to the winter weather, and we rely on our heating systems to limit the chill to the outdoors only. We hope our heaters will work throughout the winter, but that’s not enough to keep yours running!
Preventative maintenance is the only way to ensure that your heater works its best all winter long. Are you taking good care of your heating system? See our checklist to find out.

You’re comparing the options available for a new air filter for your air conditioning system (and heating system). If people in the home have allergies, you might assume the most expensive filter is going to be the best choice.
Depending on the size of your heater or air conditioner, this could be true—but it’s not likely. In many cases, a more expensive filter only does damage to the heating and AC systems, and it can keep air from flowing altogether (which means there is no filtration or temperature control).

If you purchased a home with heating and air conditioning already included, you might not know much about the comfort systems in place. You may assume that the systems work like the heating and air conditioning equipment you’ve had in the past. And, often, that means a separate air conditioning and heating system.

Routine maintenance will not fix your air conditioner or heater when it is broken. It is not something you call for in an emergency, and there is no alarm or notification built into your HVAC system to remind you to schedule maintenance. Routine HVAC maintenance is so important for the life and efficiency of your cooling and heating systems, but we understand that it’s easy to forget.
Nearly any HVAC technician will tell you to seek services for your heating equipment and for your cooling equipment at least once a year. And there is an easy way to remember: signing up for a maintenance program from a local contractor.

Computers, phones, and cars have changed so much in the last couple of decades. Most likely, you’re not rolling up your car’s window with a crank or typing in phone numbers by memory. So why do you have the same old thermostat on the wall of your house?
A smart thermostat makes home comfort…well…smarter! The thermostat is mounted on the wall, in order to monitor the temperature and make it easy for anyone within the house to make adjustments. In fact, today’s wall thermostats are easier to use than ever before. But what’s even better is your ability to control the thermostat from your smart phone—no matter where you are!

In Atlanta, we spend most of the year running our air conditioners—not our heaters. So when temperatures do start to drop, you might feel surprised to learn that your heating system is not as efficient as you’d thought.
The cost of heating your home in the winter may be comparable to the cost of cooling throughout the year, which is why we recommend taking a few steps to make your entire home work more efficiently.
