Gas furnaces are a reliable, efficient way to heat your Augusta, GA home. If you notice issues with your current furnace or are ready to speak to someone about upgrading to a new, energy-efficient unit, contact Atlas Heating & Air Conditioning. Our technicians are expertly trained to work on all makes and models of furnaces.
Providing your furnace with regular maintenance is critical to ensuring it runs efficiently and reducing the likelihood of an untimely breakdown. A furnace tune-up should be performed each fall, ideally before you turn the system on for the first time. We receive dozens of calls each year from homeowners whose furnaces wouldn’t start on the first cold day of the year. Regular furnace maintenance can also prevent repairs and increase the system’s lifespan.
At some point, your furnace will likely need to be repaired, especially if you notice high energy bills, inefficient heating, short cycling, strange noises, or unpleasant odors. Furnace repairs should only be performed by a qualified HVAC professional to prevent a dangerous situation. For example, a cracked heat exchanger can lead to carbon monoxide exposure that can be fatal. In other cases, the repair may be more simple, including clogged air filters and loose parts.
Today’s gas furnaces are much more efficient than furnaces manufactured just a few years ago. Although buying a new furnace is a significant financial investment, you’ll recoup some of the costs with lower energy bills and fewer repairs. At Atlas, we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to installing furnaces. We carefully consider your home’s size and unique design to match you with a furnace that provides optimal efficiency, performance, and indoor air quality.
Because the winters in the greater CSRA area are relatively mild compared to other areas of the country, heat pumps are continuing to grow in popularity. Heat pumps can serve as both a cooling and heating system for year-round comfort. Our heat pump services include:
Heat Pump Maintenance
Since heat pumps operate year-round and take the place of a furnace and air conditioner, they need bi-annual maintenance, once in the fall and again in the spring. During a maintenance visit, a technician will inspect the entire system, clean and adjust necessary components, and suggest any needed repairs. If you want to avoid a breakdown on one of the coldest days of the year, invest in heat pump maintenance.
Heat Pump Repairs
Like all heating and cooling systems, heat pumps do need to be repaired occasionally, especially since they operate for much of the year. A simple repair is often all that’s needed to restore your heat pump system to working condition again. Pay close attention to signs your unit may need a repair, including short cycling, inefficient heating or cooling, or loud noises.
Heat Pump Installation
Although heat pumps operate similarly to air conditioners during the summer, how they work in the winter sets them apart from gas furnaces. Instead of burning fuel to provide heat, heat pumps extract the heat from the outside air to warm homes. This makes them incredibly efficient and can lead to lower monthly energy bills. If you’ve never owned a heat pump and are interested in learning more, contact Atlas Heating & Air Conditioning today.
Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pumps
There are so many benefits that come with installing ductless mini-split heat pump systems. For starters, as their name suggests, they don’t require the use of existing ductwork to distribute heat into your home’s living areas. Instead, indoor air handling units are installed in various rooms in homes and are connected to the outside condenser via refrigerant lines.
Each air handling unit comes with its own thermostat, allowing homeowners to create temperature “zones” around their homes for increased energy efficiency. Since they don’t require ductwork, ductless mini-split heat pumps are ideal for garages, sunrooms, and new home additions.
