You would never set sail on the ocean, or even a small river or lake, with a leaky boat. But plenty of homeowners are content to run their heating and cooling systems with leaky ducts. They often don’t realize that they have ducts with leaks, but even if they do know, they may shrug it off as not that big a deal.
Although leaky ducts won’t put your life at risk the way a leaky boat would, it’s still not a good situation. When ducts develop air leaks, they cause several problems for a home:
- A rise in heating and cooling costs because of all the air that’s getting away
- Poor comfort, with hot and cold spots appearing around the house and poor airflow from the vents
- Dust and other unwanted particles getting into the the ductwork and then into the living spaces
The best way to counteract this problem is to arrange for professional duct sealing in Riverdale, GA with our team. We’ll use our training and the best tools available to make your ducts airtight once again.

Commercial spaces present big challenges when it comes to heating and cooling them. Even smaller commercial facilities are larger than the average-sized home and have far more people in them. Businesses often contain large, heat-creating equipment and have special climate requirements. For example, server rooms need to have specialized cooling and ventilation to prevent computer equipment from overheating.
One of the major challenges for commercial heating is ensuring proper heat distribution. A home may be able to get away with a few rooms that are colder than the others, but this isn’t something that should occur in a commercial space (unless by specific design, such as in a server room). If you begin to hear complaints about cold spots in your commercial business from employees, customers, clients, tenants, etc., it’s something you’ll want fixed. We’ll look at the ways our professionals can help improve your commercial heating in Covington, GA when it’s uneven.

Nobody wants to replace a home heating system in the middle of the winter. It’s inconvenient and can leave you without heating for a stretch. But sometimes it’s necessary.
The best way to avoid an emergency furnace replacement in McDonough, GA is always to have maintenance scheduled for the furnace in the fall. This helps the furnace get through the winter with few problems, and it also gives technicians a chance to warn you about having a failing furnace replaced before the winter arrives.
However, you may still run into a mid-season replacement situation. It’s not fun, but our team will see that it gets done fast so you’ll have your comfortable home restored. Below are ways to tell it’s time to get a new furnace mid-winter.

Heat rises. This is a basic scientific fact that most people learned in elementary school. It’s also a fact that can turn into a problem when you live in a two-story home. Heat moves through the floors to collect at the top of the building, creating too much warmth in second-floor rooms.
When you use a central heating system for your house, you expect the heater to provide an even distribution of warmth to all the rooms. But you may run into the problem of an overheated upper floor in your home when your heating system is running. You have the heater sending heat to both levels, and then heat from the lower floor rises to the upper floor, resulting in temperatures possibly too high for comfort.
Is this something you just have to “deal with”? Or are there solutions?

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?
