HVAC FAQ: Why Choose Radiant Heating

December 4th, 2017

radiant-in-floor-heatingGeorgia does not get as cold in the winter as some areas in the Northeast or the Midwest, but it still gets more than cold enough to demand a great performance from your home heating system. If you are planning on replacing an existing heating system, or if you are ready to choose your new heater for a brand new property under construction, then we strongly suggest that you consider radiant heating. The benefits are too great to overlook.

In-floor radiant heating systems may best be installed at the time of construction, but they can also be installed any time that you are doing a remodeling project or feel comfortable having your floors taken up to allow for the installation. It’s a big job, but it is one that we excel in and which we are more than capable of handling in a timely and professional manner. Consider the benefits of using radiant heating in your home, and contact the Canton HVAC pros on our team for more details.

Why Might a Heater Short Cycle?

November 6th, 2017

servicing-furnaceGeorgia is certainly — and rightfully — recognized more for its hot, sticky summers than it is for its winter weather.

September 11th, 2017

sealing-ductWhen you live in Georgia, you depend upon your air conditioner to keep you cool during the hottest time of the year. Maybe you use a heat pump, which can also help you to warm your home during our relatively mild winters.

In fact, there are plenty of warning signs that you may notice, provided that you know what it is that you are looking for.
