Top 10 Ways to Save on Heating Bills

With winter only a few months away, now is a good time to start thinking about ways to keep energy costs at a minimum. The rising prices of natural gas and electricity can make it more and more difficult to be able to afford keeping your thermostat at a comfortable temperature. There is hope, however, and there are many different ways to keep your energy bill from getting out of hand when the mercury dips.

  1. Insulation: Check areas such as your attic, basement, crawlspace, and behind the walls of your home for insulation; the thicker the insulation, the higher the R-Factor. If you presently have insulation but are not sure how old it is, you can have it checked by a professional heating contractor. Insulation degrades with age, and over time, it should be replaced for greater energy savings. There are several different types of insulation that work well in different areas of your home. If you find the recommended areas in your home are not insulated, your heating systems will work overtime to keep you warm and your energy is literally going through the roof.

Many people are not aware of how long their heating systems might work before they need replaced. If your furnace installation was over 25 years ago, you should plan on having it replaced. If you are not sure how old your system is, you can call a reputable furnace repair company to inspect your system and make the necessary recommendations.

Professional heating repairmen have the knowledge and training it takes to assess your residential heating system in Atlanta in order to find and correct potential problems. If you have noticed your system is not cycling properly and seems to be turning on and off too frequently, this can be a sure sign that something is wrong. If you have a newer system, it may be as simple as moving your thermostat to the correct place in your home, or that your home is not properly insulated, or possibly the duct work is not installed properly; but the only way to determine these things is to have it checked by calling for central heating repair services.

Which Air Conditioner Works Best for You?

There are many different air conditioning systems available these days that are best suited for your environment. Because Georgia has such a diverse range of temperatures from its mountains to its coastal areas, when it comes to installing an air conditioner in your home, one size does not fit all. When you are shopping around for home air conditioning service, it pays to do your homework. Hopefully, you have a good relationship established with a local HVAC company that is up to date on all the latest technology and systems available. If not, then with a little research, a good company is easy to find.

First of all, you want to make sure the company has been established for a number of years and that they can install and perform air conditioning service and maintenance when you need it. Are they licensed, insured, and do they have good reviews on their website and on the Internet. Do they offer installation and AC repair on different units such as gas, electric, oil, hybrids, etc. (more…)

Summertime is not exactly the time we stop and think about heating repair or heating services, but it should be. Cooler temperatures in Atlanta can creep up on you faster than you think, and if your furnace has not been performing as you would like, then summer is a perfect time to have it checked out before the cold weather rush sets in.

Your furnace will provide you many years of comfort, especially when you have routine maintenance performed on it each year. This ensures it will work at peak performance during the freezing cold winter months. In 2013 and the early months of 2014, Georgia experienced one of the coldest winters on record since the 80s. This created a huge demand for residential heating repair in Atlanta because the unusually cold temperatures caught many people off guard. This is just one more reason to have your furnace checked out each year so you will be prepared for whatever hand Mother Nature deals you. (more…)
