Choosing an Atlanta HVAC Contractor | Best Pick Reports
Since many minor Atlanta air conditioning and heating system
problems lead to greater, more expensive repairs, all issues should be
resolved promptly. Because many small problems go unnoticed, routine
system check-ups by an expert are important for the lifetime health of
your system. Some heating and air technicians claim that half of all
emergency service calls could be avoided through routine service.
Regular maintenance. Routine safety checks on gas systems are especially important to guard
against carbon monoxide poisoning. Regular service can also eliminate
the need for a contractor during peak seasons, such as the first hot
spell of the summer, when good contractors are in high demand.
Some Atlanta heating & air conditioning contractors provide both
installation services and maintenance and repair services. Many sell
annual maintenance contracts to inspect and service the system before
it breaks. When homeowners are satisfied with the initial installation
of their new air conditioning and heating systems, they often opt to
continue routine maintenance with their installation contractor.
Sizing a system. Upon
installation, the contractor should correctly size a gas furnace
system, air conditioning system, or heat pump system. If the system is
too small, it will not adequately control the temperature of the house
on especially cold and warm days. On the other hand, if the system is
too large, it will cycle on and off frequently, creating excess noise,
lower efficiency, and potentially decreased humidity control. Highly
skilled professional contractors understand that operating
inefficiencies occur as the system cycles on and off, and additional
cycles waste money.
Atlanta air conditioning & heating contractors, like any company
working at the home, should carry both workers' compensation and
liability insurance. All Best Pick™ Atlanta HVAC contractors carry
