Atlanta’s HVAC Experts
R.S. Andrews: Atlanta’s HVAC Experts
Are you considering whether you need to replace your home’s central heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit – commonly known as your HVAC system? As an Atlanta resident, you’re well aware that the weather in our area can go through extremes of both hot and cold throughout the year, taxing your heating and cooling system to its limits. As a general rule, if your existing HVAC system is more than fifteen years old, it’s only a matter of time before it starts to cost more to maintain than it would to replace with a new system. In addition to higher energy bills brought on by a system that can no longer function at peak efficiency, repair costs will also start to add up as parts are replaced and the ventilation system undergoes major overhauls. If you need HVAC installation, HVAC maintenance, or HVAC service and repair, R.S. Andrews is the most trusted name in Atlanta.
Our HVAC Services
Our heating services include:
Choosing Your HVAC System
HVAC appliances are rated for overall energy efficiency by the federal government using the Energy Star classification rating system. This rating system can be very useful in determining how much you could potentially save on your power bills by upgrading your HVAC system. In addition, appliances that are particularly highly rated could make you eligible for federal tax subsidies of up to $500, which can help you offset the expense of installing a new HVAC system. You might even qualify for similar local rebates from your utility company or the energy agency in your state.
New HVAC installations present a wide variety of options that can save you money on your power bills and reduce the amount of HVAC maintenance and service that will ultimately be required over the life of your new unit. If you want to upgrade your existing system instead, options like adding heat pumps, two-stage furnaces, air-to-heat exchangers (HRVs), and programmable thermostats can all go a long way toward increasing efficiency and extending the life expectancy of your system.
Indoor Air Quality
We’ve found that many homes and businesses in Atlanta face significant indoor air quality issues as a result of the seasonal high humidity in our area, which creates conditions ripe for mold and mildew growth in both old and new HVAC systems. Our HVAC technicians can help you determine which strategies will work best for neutralizing airborne particulates in your home, which often involves a combination of filtration methods and Ultraviolet light technology that together can help keep your system perpetually free of contaminants. We can also install whole house dehumidifiers and humidifiers, which can make a huge difference in the amount of work your HVAC unit will have to do to be effective.
In order to get the most out of your equipment, we highly recommend proper HVAC maintenance. You’ll want to make sure from the outset that you have access to skilled and knowledgeable technicians who have been factory trained to service your particular model, since different systems require different highly specific modifications. It’s highly advisable to find a reputable HVAC dealer in the Atlanta area that guarantees their work and offers annual service contracts to their customers which assure that necessary seasonal maintenance is always being performed regularly. Many times, small timely adjustments and filter changes that are done on a regular basis can wind up saving you from breakdowns that always seem to occur right when you need your system the most.
