Heating Service in Valdosta

Heating and cooling account for about 56% of the energy use in a typical home. Keep in mind that properly maintaining the system is every bit important in the winter as the summer. We are running fall specials on tune ups and cleanings for your heating system so call for details.

A wide variety of technologies are available for heating your home, and they achieve a wide range of efficiencies in converting their energy sources into useful heat. In addition, many heating sources have certain supporting equipment in common, such as thermostats and ducts, which provide opportunities for saving energy. It is a great time to have your ductwork or thermostat evaluated to make sure your not wasting energy dollars.

Saving energy in your home can be easy. It is important to think about not only improving your existing heating system, but also consider the energy efficiency of the supporting equipment and the possibility of either adding supplementary sources of heating or simply replacing your system altogether.

Energy Saving Information

Your AC and heating system uses more energy and drains more energy dollars than any other system in your home. Experts say that typically, 46% of your utility bill goes for heating and cooling. No matter what kind of system you have in your house, you can save money by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment. The other important factors are having appropriate insulation, air sealing, and thermostat settings. Here is some other important information:

  • You can save as much as 10% a year on your utility bill by turning back your thermostat back 10% to 15% for 8 hours a day. You can do this manually or by having a programmable thermostat installed.
  • Have your duct work checked for leakage and/ or poor insulation. Your system could be losing much of its capacity because of duct work that is in poor shape.
  • Avoid placing lamps or TV sets near thermostats because heat will be detected and will cause the air conditioner to run longer.

These are just a few energy saving tips to help you save money. For more advice or information on our energy efficient Carrier heat pump system line up, give us a call at 229-244-0192.

Home Air Conditioning

Home air conditioning is a luxurious component of living indoors. It is fair to assume that many people do have air conditioning in South Georgia, but there are still people out there that must go with out every summer. Since air conditioning is considered a luxury it can tend to be expensive to buy and maintain. Many homeowners do not think much of their AC system until it breaks down or runs their power bill up beyond belief. If you neglect your AC system, it will break down and it will cost more in energy consumption to operate – meaning a higher power bill.

In future posts I will make many comparisons of AC systems and cars. Both of these items are luxuries and both can tend to be expensive to maintain, but you can live without them and still survive. The question is: How much money are you willing to invest in it and do you want your family friend’s cousin’s nephew to work on it when it breaks down? My answer is that I love air conditioning and I cannot do without it if it breaks down. I only want the best to work on it and keep it running at a low cost. Any thoughts? You can also call us at 244-0192 if you have any questions about your AC system.

Scheduled service for air conditioning

 

It is recommended that an AC system filter be replaced at least once a month during the cooling season. Equipment manufacturers also recommend having the system cleaned, tuned up and inspected at least once a year. We have a great Discount Club Program that you can sign up for that will get you a deep discount on AC and Heating repairs as well as having your unit on a scheduled maintenance plan that will keep your system running more energy efficient for a longer time. Call us at 229-244-0192 and take advantage of our Discount Club program. Mention this blog and get a special discount price on VIP service (ask for Jason).

AC repair costs

 

Air Conditioning repair costs can vary greatly from one contractor to another. Reputable air conditioning contractors in Valdosta will tend to have similar costs for repairs across the board, but there are guys out there that have a truck and some tools of the trade that will do a repair for next to nothing. They will get your money and you  will never see them again. A reputable AC company invests a lot into training, insurances, equipment, and quality, drug free employees to come to your house.

Shopping for an AC system in Valdosta

 

When buying a central AC system make sure it is 13 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) or higher. In warmer climates, like Valdosta, it is better to have a 14 SEER or higher unit. The up front cost on higher efficient systems is more, but the long run energy savings will save you more and cover the extra cost.
