  • Your House is a System and Here’s How It Works!

    You understand that your car is made up of interacting components and systems – when one component fails, it affects the performance of the entire vehicle. Do you know that the same goes for your house?

    Luxury Home

    High energy bills, uneven temperatures from room-to-room, drafts, moisture, mold, mildew, poor indoor air quality, ice dams, pest infestations, seemingly uncontrollable humidity levels and even premature deterioration of building materials can all be the result of a breakdown in the relationship between the systems in your house – the building envelope (shell), heating and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment and you, the occupants.

    If one system has a problem, it impacts the other systems’ ability to function properly. Treating the obvious symptom without knowing the real culprit behind it can actually make the problem worse or create new problems. The process of elimination approach just causes frustration as you try solution after solution – investing more time, money and energy – without resolution.

    Properly diagnosing and fixing the root cause requires a house-as-a-system approach based on building science.

    That’s exactly what Estes Heating and Air Conditioning professionals are trained to do. They conduct a comprehensive whole-home assessment to find the real problems, then prescribe and prioritize improvements which make the system as a whole function at its best.

    Here’s how it works.

    Most projects start with an interview with you, the homeowner, to find out what symptoms you’ve noticed and what, if anything, you’ve tried to fix those symptoms. An evaluation of your energy bills provides clues to areas that need improvement.

    Next, your Estes certified professional will conduct a thorough walk-through – both indoors and out. The technician may use an infrared camera to get a visual on temperature differences in different areas, conduct a blower door test to depressurize the house and assess air leakage levels through the building envelope, and test for duct work leakage of forced-air HVAC systems. They may also perform other function and safety tests on HVAC equipment, including carbon monoxide levels and combustion appliance back-draft testing.

    At the end of the comprehensive whole-home assessment, Estes will provide you with a scientific, objective view of the situation. Then we will be able to help you prioritize repairs in order – from must-do to nice-to-do – so you can solve the biggest problems without making smaller problems worse.

    Once the improvement work is completed, Estes will conduct a second whole-home assessment that follows all the same steps as the first. This ensures that all the corrections work, and the desired performance levels have been achieved.

  • Why A Pre-Season Maintenance Check Is Necessary Before Summer Hits

    Heat and humidity are realities of a Georgia summer, and ensuring that your residential air conditioner is in tip-top shape needs to occur before the hot air moves in. Catching small problems before they have the chance to bloom into much larger ones is worth the effort. Air conditioners performing at their maximum efficiency can use up to 20% less electricity, and less energy usage means a cooler house for less in the sweltering summer months.

    Springtime is an ideal opportunity to take a close look at your air conditioner. After the long off season, a little home maintenance can prevent air conditioner repair or replacement. Homeowners can check up on some basics prior to having a HVAC technician perform a thorough maintenance inspection .

    • A visual inspection of the air conditioner outside will reveal if any debris has fouled the unit. Never use a hose to clean your residential A/C unit, as this can result in electrical shock and damage to the unit.
    • Change the filter . Restricted air flow, loss of efficiency, and an ice-encrusted evaporator are the risks of using an A/C unit with dirty or clogged filters. Some filters require monthly replacement, but high efficiency filters can often be replaced over longer periods, though regular checks are good practice.
    • Run the air conditioner for a little while before the summertime, after inspecting the outside of the unit and ensuring the filters are new or cleaned. This is a simple way to discover right off if there is a problem with the unit. While the unit is running, check the airflow around the house to locate potential problems.
    • Clean your coils or have them cleaned by a professional HVAC technician. Inspect your registers inside the house for mold and clean any dust. Mold growth may indicate that your ducts need a good cleaning.

    Pre-season routine maintenance is an absolutely necessary part of owning a central residential A/C and will prolong the life of your existing unit, point out smaller problems before air conditioner repair or replacement is needed, and keep your home’s cooling running at peak efficiency. If you have questions about your residential A/C, then contact Estes Heating & air Conditioning to schedule an appointment or visit our site for more HVAC information.
