If you know about heat pumps, you probably know that they work as both heating and cooling systems. That sounds like a terrific advantage for a home: having all the comfort needs for the year contained in a single package rather than using a separate air conditioner and furnace. But if heat pumps were always the best choice, they would be in every home by now.

The truth is that—as with so many other home installations—there is no single right unit for all situations. A heat pump may be the perfect new system to install in your home this fall as you prepare for the change in seasons. Or there may be other options that would work better in terms of capacity and efficiency. We’ll look deeper into the question of “to heat pump or not to heat pump.”

This is a common summer heat wave problem in Georgia. The air conditioner in your home is whirring and humming to keep the house cool. Suddenly, it stops: no fans, no air from the vents, no cooling, nothing. Not even a sound from it.

You can reset the breaker to get the air conditioner working once more. But why did this happen in the first place and is it a sign of trouble with the air conditioner that may need to be fixed?

You know how a thermostat works. You’ve probably been around them in the homes you’ve lived in throughout your life. When you want the house to be cooler, you lower the setting. When you want the house to be warmer, you raise it. You can also turn the fan on and off, maybe a few other little features, but that’s it.

In our experience as HVAC experts, we’ve seen people make many mistakes with their thermostat settings so they end up wasting energy and not getting the comfort they need. Sending the thermostat setting zig-zagging through a summer day depending on how you currently feel can mean higher bills than necessary and a house that goes hot and cold rather than where you need it.

We’re going to give you the knowledge you need to be “comfort wise”!
