Why Won’t My Electric Furnace Heat Up Enough?

November 21st, 2022

Because we don’t get winters as deeply cold as more northern states, many of our homes can get by through the winter with the power of an electric furnace. Electric furnaces don’t have the heating capacity of gas furnaces, but they can still do the job of providing warmth around a house. They also have the advantage of fewer malfunctions and long service lives. 

But the reliability of an electric furnace isn’t ironclad. You may run into a problem where your electric furnace turns on, but you aren’t getting the usual level of heat from it, even if you crank up the thermostat as high as possible. What’s causing this?

Did you know we offer service for commercial heating and commercial AC in Dublin, GA? Yes, we’re proud to help out local businesses when it comes to staying cool. We have more than 20 years of history working in the area and we know all about the best way to deliver the ideal climate conditions to businesses, from stores to restaurants to offices to manufacturing.

Here’s one question we often hear from people about commercial HVAC. It’s something that’s tickled their brains for years, but they never thought to just ask about it. “Why are most commercial HVAC units located up on the roof of the building?” With home air conditioning systems, the HVAC cabinet is usually located on the perimeter of the home. 

We sometimes joke that HVAC units are put on the roof because they make convenient obstacles for shootouts and rooftop chases in Hollywood movies. But of course, the truth is a bit more mundane…

How Your AC’s Compressor Could Fail

August 15th, 2022

Dealing with a heat wave requires an air conditioner to do an immense amount of work. In our last post, we offered advice on how you can alleviate some of the strain on your home’s air conditioner so it can make it through the rest of the summer. Today, we’re going to focus on the essential component of your AC that you want to keep in the best shape: the compressor. This part of the AC works the hardest to keep the entire system running and cooling the house. If it fails, it’s often more cost-effective to replace the entire air conditioner rather than just the compressor.

How can a compressor end up failing? There are several ways, and we’ll look at the most common. If you fear you have a compressor at the edge of burning out, call us right away for air conditioning repair in Conyers, GA

Why an Oversized AC Is a Truly “Big” Problem

July 18th, 2022

In a recent post, we debunked several common myths about air conditioning systems. We didn’t have space for all the major misconceptions people have about ACs (there are plenty!), but we wanted to write a specific blog post about one we didn’t include because it deserves special attention. This is the myth that “There’s no such thing as an air conditioner that’s too powerful.” Or, in HVAC terms, “an oversized AC.”

When people are looking for a new air conditioning installation in Conyers, GA, they often fall into the mistaken belief that it’s better to err on the side of an AC that’s too powerful rather than one that’s not powerful enough. It’s easy to see why this is a common belief. If the AC provides too much cooling, you can just adjust the thermostat, right? 

However, the sizing of an air conditioning system for a house is complex, and both undersized and oversized ACs create problems. An undersized AC won’t be able to cool the house fully, and an oversized AC will … well, we’ll get into that below.
