What to Look For in an HVAC Professional

The HVAC professional is an oft-forgotten, but vitally important, ally of the homeowner. Homeowners rarely think about their HVAC until it doesn’t work anymore, at which point it’s time to bring in the professional. If you don’t already have an HVAC contractor that you trust, finding one can be a headache.  But there are a few things to look for that will make your air conditioner repair or air conditioner replacement much easier.

First, ask around amongst your friends and family. If they’ve had a good relationship with a specific contractor, they’ll be sure to tell you all about it. In this way, your friends and family are an invaluable source of information; they can tell you about the quality of the work, if it was worth the cost, and other kinds of info that some testimonials and reviews, even online reviews, just won’t include.

Next, when you are looking for potential contractors, look for contractors who have been in business for a while under the same name. Some contractors may have 10 or 15 years of experience, but if it is under 8 or 9 different business names, this may indicate financial instability. These types of contractors may do good work, but they also may not be around to honor their warranties. Companies that have been around for a long time under the same name are a much safer bet. For instance, Estes Heating and Air Conditioning has been serving the Atlanta area for 60 years!

Expect potential contractors to give you itemized estimates as well. Any reputable air conditioning service will gladly give you an itemized estimate. Pay close attention to these estimates and compare them against each other; not just for the lowest price but if an estimate is noticeably different, call them and ask why. It could be that they’ve noticed something that others have missed, saving you headache down the road.

These are just a few things to look for in an HVAC professional.

Preventative Heating and Air Maintenance for Your Business

 As with most things, preventative maintenance on your business’ HVAC system is important. Unfortunately, many people forget to do even basic preventative maintenance. We don’t blame them—HVAC units are often on the roof, far out of sight, and are becoming increasingly complicated as technology improves. However, we would like to remind you of several benefits of preventative maintenance.

Most importantly, preventative maintenance will save your business money. In these tough economic times, businesses are looking for any way to save money, but preventative maintenance is one of the most often forgotten ways to do so. Keeping equipment in good working order will keep that equipment running at optimal efficiency, meaning you won’t have to run your air conditioning as often, and early repairs are almost always cheaper than late repairs.

Your business’ efficiency is potentially at stake, as well. When your HVAC is working, your employees are working, too. When it stops working, your business likely slows or stops. Preventative maintenance on your HVAC can help ensure that your business continues to operate at its peak efficiency, as well.

HVAC System

Preventative maintenance on your air conditioner can also help improve the health of your employees. Filters and other parts of the air conditioner become clogged with dirt over time, reducing the air quality inside your building. This can exacerbate asthma and allergies in your employees. Keeping filters clean will keep them functioning properly and will improve the air quality inside your business. Additionally, some studies indicate that a system operating with clean coils, instead of even moderately dirty ones, is around 32% more efficient.

These are just a few of the benefits of preventative maintenance.

How Air Conditioning Works

If you are like most people, you probably haven’t ever wondered how your HVAC works. You’ve wondered why it doesn’t work, and you’ve probably wondered when it will work again, but probably never how it works. For most people, it’s enough that the HVAC works when they turn it on and when it breaks, they call their air conditioner repair company, and that’s the end of their involvement with their air conditioner.

For those of us who have wondered how an HVAC unit works, check out this short video by the team at How Stuff Works. The entire process is explained quickly and concisely. If you have any questions, give Estes Heating and Air Conditioning a call at (404) 361-6560, or visit our website at
