Learn everything you need to know about heat pumps from an Atlanta heating expert. Atlanta, Georgia – There are many things to understand when selecting a heat pump for your home. Phil Montgomery, an Atlanta heating expert, offers an explanation to help homeowners better understand what to look for. “It’s essential to first understand what exactly a heat pump is and what it can do,” says Montgomery, whose company Atlanta Heating and Air Conditioning has served the area for more than 40 years. “A heat pump is a reverse cycle air conditioner that extracts heat and transfers it. They can be used to heat in the winter, warm in the summer, dehumidify your home and circulate and filter the air? Heat pumps do not generate heat themselves, but instead extract the heat from one body of air and transfer it to another. It works the same as a refrigerator does, compressing gas, expanding it and then extracting the heat. The unique thing about heat pumps is that even if the air outside is freezing, heat pumps can still find heat to extract. Then, that heat will get transferred back inside your home to keep your family warm. In summer, it simply works in reverse ...

An Atlanta heating expert explains switching heat pumps to heater more. Atlanta, Georgia – October is almost over, and we’re seeing temperatures drop around the country. Hopefully, by this time, homeowners have had their heat pumps inspected and are ready to turn them on in preparation for dropping temperatures. “In the winter, a heat pump basically works similar to an air conditioner, only in reverse,” says Phil Montgomery, owner of Atlanta Heating and Air Conditioning. “The pump works to pull heat from the outside air and more it through your home. Heat pumps tend to work more efficiently that furnaces.” Heat pumps are gaining in popularity, so homeowners may have questions about how they work. “One of the most common questions we get from homeowners is how they can save money on their energy bills,” says Montgomery, who provides heater repair throughout the Atlanta area. “Heat pumps can be effective at saving money, provided the homeowner knows how to properly work it. And that means understanding how the heat pump actually works.” A heat pump works by refrigerant passing through a circuit, drawing heat from one area and moving it to another area. Refrigerators and air conditioners both operate on heat pumps. The process ...

Many homeowners may not actually know how often they should change the filters on their Atlanta heating units. An expert explains. Atlanta, Georgia – Fall is here, which means one thing – temperatures will soon be dropping and homeowners will begin spending more time inside their homes. As homeowners begin using their furnaces, it’s important to know how often to change their filters to avoid unneeded furnace repair. An Atlanta heating expert explains more. “I recommend that my clients check their filters at least once a month,” says Phil Montgomery, a Marietta furnace installation expert whose company has more than 40 years of experience. “Changing your filter so often may seem silly to some, but failing to properly change it can affect both your indoor air quality and the way your furnace operates.” Filters collect all of the things you don’t want in your air – dust, pet dander, pollen and other debris. As it works, it becomes clogged. If it isn’t changed out often enough, it will become difficult for clean air to pass through. That will mean the unit’s blower will work harder, increasing your energy bill. Eventually, homeowners will be calling their heating and cooling technician because their motor will ...

An Atlanta heating expert offers tips to safely and properly lighting a furnace pilot light. Atlanta, Georgia – In homes with older furnaces, homeowners still need to pay attention to their pilot light to ensure their home stays warm and comfortable throughout the cold months. Most furnaces will have instructions for lighting the pilot light printed directly on them. But in case homeowners cannot find them, or their unit doesn’t have written instructions, Phil Montgomery, an Atlanta heating expert, offers the following explanation. “Pilot lights can go out when a draft goes through,” says Montgomery, owner of Atlanta Heating and Air Conditioning, providing furnace repair in Marietta for more than 40 years. “Homeowners should be sure they follow the instructions for lighting a pilot light exactly. Lighting any pilot light follows a general procedure.” First, find the pilot light assembly. There is typically a gas valve with on, off and pilot settings. Turn the valve to off and wait several minutes. Then, switch the valve to the pilot setting. Hold a lighted match to the pilot opening while you push the reset button located on the pilot control panel. This button should stay pushed until you see the pilot flame burning. Then, turn the ...

Heating your home doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Learn how to save on your Atlanta heating bills this winter. Atlanta, Georgia – You may already be dreading your Atlanta heating bills this winter. But Phil Montgomery, owner of an Atlanta heating and cooling company with more than 40 years of experience, offers some tips to save homeowners money this winter. “There are several ways you can save on your utility bills each month this winter,” says Montgomery, owner of Atlanta Heating and Air Conditioning. “The first begins at your thermostat. You can typically save about three percent for every degree your thermostat is lowered. This is a simple way to save. Always adjust the thermostat when no one is home and at night when you can settle under warm blankets.” If you have a fireplace, be sure to keep your fire damper closed. Heat rises, and a damper works just like a hole in your roof would – the heat will simply escape. And because fires actually suck warm air from a room, use your fireplace sparingly. Close off rooms that aren’t in use to prevent heating spaces that no one occupies. Shut the vents inside them, as well. Be sure all of your ...
