September 24, 2020 | Blog

What You Should Leave to the Professional

There are some tasks best left to the professionals. Heating systems are composed of sensitive equipment that requires maintenance to improve performance and efficiency. This fall, make it a priority to schedule professional fall HVAC maintenance. Absolute Comfort Air is your trusted HVAC contractor and will provide essential cleaning, care, and inspection to ensure your heating system can handle the important job of keeping your home comfortable through the cold months. Give us a call 770-867-2828 to schedule your fall maintenance/tune-up!

Check and replace your air filters often

Dirty air filters make your HVAC system less efficient and cause undue strain on its working parts. While the general rule is to change your filter every 30 to 90 days, they may need to be replaced more often if you have pets or open your windows often.

Another thing to consider is purchasing a new high-efficiency pleated air filter. The folds in these filters trap more small particles than traditional filters, keeping your system clean and your family healthy.

Keep your AC and heating systems free of debris

If you have an outdoor unit, it is important to keep the system free of debris. Check your unit often for leaves, pollen, dirt, sticks or other debris. Clear the debris from the top and sides of the system using gloves and, if necessary, a hose. This allows for maximum airflow to the fan and increases your unit’s efficiency and lifespan. In order to ensure the cleanest system possible, try to remove anything that blocks air flow to the system, leaving about two feet of space around the unit.

Clean your registers

Try to keep your registers and ducts clean of dust and debris. Be sure to wipe down your registers as often as possible to keep dust and debris out of your system.

Make sure any combustible products are stored away from your heating system.

Clear furniture or objects from the registers (intake)-Move heavy furniture and other items which may be blocking registers, preventing heating from reaching your living spaces and potentially straining your system.

Replace the batteries in your carbon monoxide detector. This should be done annually to protect your family from undetected carbon monoxide exposure.

Give your humidifier a vacation in the summer and use it in the cold months

In order to give your system a rest in the summer, turn off your furnace humidifier’s water supply. When the cooler months approach, replace the water panel (also known as humidifier pad), set the relative humidity between 35 and 45 percent, and turn the water supply to the furnace humidifier back on.

Listen for unusual noises

Listen for odd noises when your system is running. Often times, noises in your system are created by register blockages, debris in the vents, or loose bolts on the furnace or registers. If you hear any odd noises, try to locate the source. If you can’t find the source, check out this list of common HVAC system noises, what they mean and how to fix them. If this does not solve the problem, call us at Absolute Comfort Air for a tune-up 770-867-2828.

What Our Customers Have To Say

Had Us Up and Running in a Couple of Hours

Tanner was our service tech. Our heat quit on a Friday night and I called Absolute Comfort Air on Saturday morning. Tanner came to our home about an hour and a half after my phone call and diagnose the problem, explained the circumstances, and gave me a detailed quote. He then proceeded to make the repair.  He worked steadily and had us up and running in a couple of hours. Tanner was very polite, explained things in detail, and answered my questions very patiently. Thank you for a job well done.

Simply The Best!

I’ve been without heat since Saturday when my heat pump went out. I called Absolute Comfort and Alex came out and confirmed that after 19 years it had died. Kevin came out yesterday morning and he and Mark came this morning to check on things. Wayne and D.J. installed my new system. My house is warmer than it’s been in years and I wanted to thank you all for the fast, courteous and efficient manner you took care of my problem. Y’all are simply the best!!

Explained Everything to Me

I had a service technician by the name of Tanner visit my house today and go through a check list of all the components of my HVAC and found everything to be good and working at it’s best. He was very professional, courteous, and explained everything to me when he completed his work so I could understand it all. I would recommend Tanner to preform any and all maintenance required to anyone’s system.
