What to Do About Uneven Heating in Your Commercial Property

Monday, January 30th, 2023

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.

However, you’ll soon begin wrapping up the time of year when you run your home’s heater the most. With warmer weather on the horizon, you’ll find it tempting to put aside any repairs you think the heating system may require. “It can’t be too urgent, and I won’t need the heater that often anyway,” you may think.

But heating repair in Covington, GA is important to schedule promptly, no matter the season or the upcoming weather forecast. If your heating system is acting strangely or isn’t working right, call us as soon as you can to arrange for our technicians to fix it.

Does a Dead Compressor Mean Your AC Is Beyond Repairs?

Monday, July 19th, 2021

When it comes to major AC system repair in Covington, GA, a dead compressor is one of the biggest. The compressor is the literal heart of an air conditioner because it’s what makes refrigerant circulate to carry heat from inside the house to the outside. The compressor uses a powerful motor to run, and if the motor burns out, the compressor will fail. 

You may have heard the conventional wisdom that when a compressor dies, it means the end of the line for the entire AC. Replacing a compressor is expensive, which makes the prospect of replacing the entire system more attractive. 

But is it always true that a failed compressor means you have to replace your AC? Follow us below and we’ll answer that.

Why You Must Only Hire Professionals for Heating Service

Of course, we want you to call us when you need an HVAC company in Covington, GA. But we also want you to know why you need professionals like us when you have problems with your heater and need help. 

You have other options when it comes to heating repair: You can try to fix the problem yourself. You can look to a local neighborhood “handyperson” who “knows a few things” to see what they can do. Or you can call an unlicensed heating contractor who offers super cheap prices but says they can get the job done.

Please don’t take any of these options! Professionals HVAC technicians are the only people to turn to, and for some excellent reasons:

1. They’ll keep you safe

Safety is always the top priority when it comes to heating services. Most homes in the area rely on natural gas furnaces for winter heat, and work on any natural gas-powered appliance is potentially hazardous without the proper training and tools. In fact, it might be illegal in your local jurisdiction for a non-licensed person to work on any appliance connected to a gas main. You put your family at risk when you allow for amateur work on your heating system.

2. They have insurance to protect you

In order to have an HVAC license, a contractor must be able to show they have sufficient levels of insurance. This insurance is to protect the customer in case something goes wrong on-site. An injured worker or damage to the house may end up costing the customer because the contractor didn’t have the proper insurance. This isn’t a chance you want to take—make certain you have a fully-insured contractor. 

3. They have the best tools and know how to use them

The technology of heating and air conditioning advances constantly, and the only people who will have the best tools to get repair jobs and other services done are the professionals. Not only do pros have the best tools available to them, but they’re also trained on them and receive continuing training to keep up with the newest advances. 

4. They take responsibility

If you bring in an amateur fly-by-night contractor for a repair, they may do a quick fix that seems to get the job done, and then leave and you’ll never hear from them again. This is a problem because that “repair” they did has a good chance of failing because of the sloppy job they did. Professionals take responsibility for their work, and they’ll follow up when a customer isn’t satisfied. 

5. They save you time and money

The “appeal” of amateur or DIY work is that it will save time and money. But they actually do neither. Poor workmanship on a heating system means having to call in other people to fix the problem later, and there goes that time and money. Professionals will never rush a job, but they’ll still get the work done in a timely manner, and they’ll get it done right so you won’t need them again.
