Estes Heating & Air Conditioning Atlanta

A Look Back at the Beginnings of Estes Services

In 1949, N.B. Estes founded Estes Heating & Air Conditioning after serving in the U.S. Army. The original location of the business was in Mr. Estes’ home in what used to be known as Mountain view, a small community within a couple of miles from the former Atlanta-Hartsfield Airport. The company started out mainly as an installation company and originally only services systems installed by Estes. By the mid 1960’s, the company had developed into one of the leading heating and air conditioning companies in Atlanta and had over 40 employees. Estes experienced tremendous growth during the 70’s and 80’s, doubling in volume and greatly increasing the base of loyal customers in the greater Atlanta area. Today, Estes Services is featured in many nationally recognized trade publications and is Atlanta’s trusted source for HVAC and plumbing services.

After 75 years of service and dedication, Estes Services is proud to be Atlanta’s trusted provider of heating, air conditioning, and plumbing services. The core values that Mr. Estes founded Estes Heating & Air Conditioning upon in 1949 lives on today in every member of our incredible team.

The Importance of Preventive HVAC Maintenance

Heating and cooling your home accounts for up to half of your annual energy costs. To minimize your heating and cooling costs as much as possible, you need to make sure that your HVAC system is in tip-top shape and operating at peak efficiency. Not only will preventive maintenance keep your HVAC running smoothly, but it will also help you avoid costly air conditioner repairs and the inconvenience of being without hot or cold air. Preventive HVAC maintenance is important for many reasons, including:

Prevent Major HVAC Problems
Think of preventive HVAC maintenance in the same way as preventive car maintenance: If you don’t change the engine oil and replace belts and filters, the vehicle will develop some serious problems. The same holds true, in a sense, for HVAC equipment. So if you want to avoid serious and unexpected HVAC problems, be pro-active about heating and cooling maintenance.

Plan for a New HVAC System
Whether you perform maintenance yourself or trust preventive maintenance to a heating and air conditioning service in Atlanta, the more time spent caring for your HVAC system will only serve to give you or your HVAC contractor a better sense of the system’s overall condition. This means you can anticipate with a better degree of certainty when your furnace or air conditioner will need to be replaced—and the more time you have to shop around, the more confident you will feel about your purchase.

If you want to take the best care of your HVAC system, trust the experts at Estes Heating & Air Conditioning of Atlanta. In addition to inspections, tune-ups, and other maintenance services, we provide heater and AC installations to make sure that your new HVAC system performs as expected. Call us today at (404) 418-6076 to schedule HVAC service for your home.

Should You Switch to a Tankless Water Heater?

The last time you replaced your air conditioner, you probably took the opportunity to upgrade to a smarter and more efficient unit than the one you previously had—so why not do the same when the time comes to replace your water heater? Like the very best air conditioners and HVAC systems, a tankless water heater can make your life more comfortable and convenient while also saving you lots of money on energy costs in the long run. Below we will discuss the pros and cons of tankless water heaters and the ideal candidate for a tankless upgrade to help you decide whether it is a good idea (and even feasible) for you to make the switch.

Pros and Cons of Tankless Water Heaters
When making any significant purchase, it’s important that you weigh the pros and cons to make the most informed decision possible. While tankless water heaters are not without drawbacks, the pros certainly outweigh and outnumber the cons. Tankless water heaters provide virtually unlimited and instantaneous hot water. And because tankless heaters run only when needed, they are much more energy efficient than traditional tank models. The biggest drawback of tankless heaters is that they require higher up-front costs and can suffer freeze damage if not properly installed.

Is Your Home a Candidate for a Tankless System?
If you want to enjoy endless hot water and cut down on your energy bills at the same time, a tankless system is for you. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you home is a good candidate for a tankless water heater. For homes not hooked up to gas, electric tankless water heaters are available. Check the voltage and amperage requirements and make sure your home’s electricity system is up for the task. If your home can handle a tankless water heater, talk with your plumber to determine which model is right given the size of your home and your family’s hot water needs.
