New AC Installation? Why Wait?

Monday, October 8th, 2018

AC-tools-on-topYour initial air conditioning installation in Atlanta is completed on a pretty obvious schedule. It should be installed, up and running, before you move into your home. Why? Well, because we’re talking about Atlanta here, and it is way too hot for way too much of the year to even consider living without a central air conditioner in your residence. It’s not a matter of “I’ll get around to it eventually”.

When it comes to your next air conditioning installation in Atlanta, however, things are not quite so clear-cut. If you think that you’ll just wait until your existing air conditioning system breaks down entirely before you decide to replace it, well, that’s totally within your rights. However, we have to warn you, that is not the way that we’d go about doing it. In the following post, you’ll get some valuable tips about when you should start the new AC installation process—as well as what that process may look like.

Most Energy Efficient Upgrades for Your Home

Monday, August 20th, 2012

Before you decide which upgrades will make your Atlanta home more efficient, it would be best to get a home energy audit. You can do this yourself with a few simple tests. When your home is properly insulated and sealed, here are some upgrades you’ll want to think about to make your home more efficient.

High-Efficiency Furnaces & Heat Pumps

If you have an old single-stage furnace in your Atlanta home, it is time to upgrade. These furnaces were designed to run on two settings—either off or on, and when they are on, they run at full speed. Not only do they lose heat this way, but they also take longer to warm up your home. The new two-speed and multispeed models run at lower speeds to maintain a constant temperature. You can also buy ones with variable-speed blowers that operate on various speeds, which are the most efficient. Heat pumps are a good option if you need both heat and A/C in your home. While most heat pumps are manufactured to be efficient by design, the newer models are the most efficient way to heat and cool your home. If you have a heat pump older than 15 years, talk to an HVAC technician about a heat pump replacement.

Tankless Water Heaters

When you’ve upgraded your heating system, it may be time to install a more efficient water heater.  Tankless water heaters heat your water with individual units located near hot water applications. You also have the option of installing a single, whole-home tankless water heater, or for appliances that use more hot water, such as dishwashers and washing machines, you can install tankless models just for their use.

Water-Saving Toilets & Low-flow Plumbing Fixtures

Duel flush, or water-saving toilets are an excellent choice for an upgrade if you want to save water. These toilets use less water overall, and you have the option of using more or less water each time you flush. Installing low flow faucets and fixtures can also provide up to 60% in utility savings. Low flow plumbing fixtures reduce the flow rate for each fixture or application, which reduces the overall amount water used in the home. These are a good option if you’ve installed a tankless water heating system. Your tankless water heaters will be more efficient if the sum of the flow rate total for every fixture in the home is lower.

Don’t hesitate to call Premier Indoor Comfort Systems if you have any questions about upgrading your Atlanta home.
