What to Look For in a New Furnace

New Furnace Atlanta

When shopping for a new furnace, there are a number of factors you should consider to be sure you’re buying the best unit for your HVAC system. Buying a furnace that is large enough to heat your home is one of the most important things to keep in mind when you work with an Atlanta HVAC company to install a new furnace. But purchasing a furnace capable of heating your whole home shouldn’t be your only concern.

The cost of your furnace is going to be something you want to think about as well. Outside of paying for the furnace itself, you will also need to pay to run it, and your monthly costs will depend upon whether your furnace is powered by natural gas, oil, or propane. Additionally, you will want to look into how much heating and air conditioner maintenance you will need to do to your furnace once it is connected to your HVAC system.

Estes Heating & Air Conditioning, a company that was founded in 1949, can help you pick out and install the right furnace for your home. You can call us at (404) 361-6560 to get the process started.

Signs You May Have a Sewer Line Clog

Atlanta Plumber

If your sewer line ever becomes clogged, you could have a big problem on your hands. Sewer line clogs can cause extensive damage to property and create a mess that can be difficult to clean up. For this reason, you should be aware of the signs of a sewer line clog and call an Atlanta HVAC company that offers plumbing services if you suspect a clog may have taken place. Here are a few of the common signs you should look out for prior to calling the HVAC and plumbing company.

Clogged Drains or Toilets
Every now and then, your drains and toilets may clog when something gets stuck in them. For example, if you attempt to flush too much toilet paper down the toilet, it may clog momentarily and need to be plunged. However, if you find that your drains and toilets are seemingly clogging every day, you may very well have an issue with your sewer line that is preventing your home’s pipes from clearing properly.

Noisy Toilets
Do your toilets make noise whenever you use any water source in your home? Homeowners who experience sewer line clogs have reported that the water inside their toilets will percolate whenever they use a sink, washing machine, or other water source. This happens when water is having trouble working its way through your plumbing system. It is a cause for concern and should be addressed by an Atlanta HVAC company with plumbing experience.

Overflowing Drains
If you have noticed water pooling around the drains in your basement or, worse, it smells like raw sewage down there, you likely have a problem with your sewer line. When water and sewage cannot pass through your sewer line, they will begin to back up into your home. The drains will likely be the first place that you notice it happening.

Estes Heating & Air Conditioning has the necessary experience to diagnose problems with sewer lines and fix them. We also offer reliable heating and air service. You can call us at (404) 361-6560 to schedule an appointment with a technician.

Cleaning and Replacing Your Furnace Filter

Replacing your furnace filter is something you need to do routinely to keep clean air circulating throughout your HVAC system. If you fail to replace your filter on a regular basis, you will likely need to have heating and air conditioning repairs in Atlanta done frequently. You will also increase the amount of dust that is in the air inside your home.

Watch this video to see how simple it is to replace your furnace filter. Most filters last for around one month, but there are also some that can be used for two or three months at a time. Choose the filter that is right for your home, depending on how dusty it typically gets.

How to Prepare Your Furnace for the Cold Season

HVAC Atlanta

If you use a furnace to heat your home in the winter, you shouldn’t wait for the first really cold day of the season to test it out. Instead, you should prepare it for the winter by maintaining it yourself or by having an HVAC company inspect it. By asking a company that specializes in heating and air conditioner maintenance in Atlanta to run through a few simple steps, you can ensure that your furnace works properly all season long. Here are some simple preparations you should make.

Replace the air filter in your furnace.
Your furnace’s air filter will keep the air you use to heat your home clean. If you don’t replace it before the winter season or you fail to replace it at least once every month, your HVAC system will likely distribute dust and other contaminants throughout your home when you heat it. You should do everything you can to replace your air filter when it becomes dirty.

Inspect your furnace’s blower belt for any damage.
The blower belt in your furnace helps push warm air into the ductwork in your home. If it is cracked, you could risk it breaking in the middle of a cold snap. You home will likely become very cold in a short amount of time when this happens. A simple inspection of the blower belt will tell you whether or not it will need to be replaced anytime soon.

Program your thermostat and open all of your air vents.
Once you know your furnace is in good working order, you should program your thermostat so that your heat comes on only when you are at home and awake. You can set the thermostat so that your heat shuts off when you are at work or school as well as when you are sleeping. You should also make sure your air vents are open.
