Air Conditioning Systems
The NATE-certified technicians at Atlas Heating & Air Conditioning have decades of experience working on all makes and models of air conditioning systems. We provide the following services and more:
Air Conditioning Maintenance
As the old saying goes: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This holds true for your car, electrical system, and, of course, your air conditioner. During annual maintenance, our technicians use state-of-the-art computer analyzers and best-practice techniques. We’ll inspect your air conditioner, clean the necessary components, make any adjustments, and recommend minor repairs before they lead to more expensive issues in the future. It’s recommended to have air conditioners tuned up every spring.
Air Conditioning Repair
Like all mechanical equipment, air conditioners can break down over time, especially due to a lack of maintenance. Fortunately, in many cases, a simple repair is often all that’s needed to restore your AC to working order again. If you notice issues such as strange noises, unpleasant smells, short cycling, inefficient cooling or the unit won’t turn on at all, contact Atlas. The longer you wait to make a repair, the more serious and expensive the problem becomes. Our technicians can inspect the unit and find out whether it’s a simple repair such as a clogged air filter or something more serious such as a refrigerant leak.
Air Conditioning Installation
Regular maintenance and timely repairs can go a long way in ensuring your AC system can last 15-20 years. But there will come a time when it makes more sense to upgrade to a new, more efficient system than continue to make frequent repairs. Some common reasons we recommend upgrading to a new air conditioning system include old age, high energy bills, inefficiency, and frequent repairs.
In Augusta, GA, we have beautiful flora not found in other parts of the country. Wisteria, although very attractive, has a pollen count that can be overwhelming especially to area newcomers.
Overall, indoor air pollutants can cause:
- Nose and throat discomfort
- Eye and skin irritation
- Lung irritation
- Unpleasantness from offensive odors
Atlas Heating & Air Conditioning has several technologies and methods to clean and purify the air in any home or building. Keep reading to learn more.
Heat Pump Systems
Heat pump systems are continuing to grow in popularity in Augusta, GA and the CSRA – and for a good reason. These highly efficient HVAC systems provide both heating and cooling for year-round service. Our heat pump system services include:
Heat Pump Maintenance
Because heat pumps operate most of the year, they need two tune-ups – one in the spring before hot weather arrives and again in the fall before the arrival of cooler temperatures. Although heat pumps are reliable HVAC systems, they must be maintained properly for them to operate efficiently throughout the year because they perform double duty. Regular maintenance also catches minor issues before they balloon into bigger, more expensive repairs.
Heat Pump Repair
If your heat pump is in need of repair, don’t put it off. The longer a repair issue festers, the worse the issue can become, potentially leading to a complete breakdown. At Atlas, our technicians will inspect the unit, diagnose the problem and recommend a cost-effective solution to restore comfort to your home. We’ll explain why the repair should be made and wait for your approval before any work is done.
Heat Pump Installation
If you’re considering upgrading your HVAC system and are curious about heat pumps, talk to Atlas. Heat pumps operate just like air conditioners during the summer months. During the cooler season, though, they extract heat energy from the outside air to warm your home instead of burning fuel. This makes heat pumps highly efficient and more environmentally friendly.
Ductless Mini-Split Systems
As their name suggests, ductless mini-split HVAC systems don’t require the use of ductwork to distribute conditioned air across a home. Instead, they consist of an outdoor unit and multiple indoor air handling units.
Ductless mini-splits are popular options in homes that don’t have existing ductwork, which can be restrictive and expensive to install. Ductwork can also lose as much as 20% of conditioned air due to leaks and improper installation.
There are several reasons homeowners choose to install ductless mini-splits. First, they are ideal options to provide cooling to spaces that don’t have ducts, including garages, sunrooms, and new home additions. Ductless heat pump systems also allow homeowners to create temperature “zones” across their homes by installing multiple indoor air handling units, which are connected to the outside condenser via a refrigerant line. Each room, or zone, can be equipped with an indoor air handling unit that is controlled by a separate thermostat. This allows you to save energy by turning the temperature up in the summer in rooms you rarely use while keeping your bedroom cool and comfortable.
