When to Consider a New Furnace

Monday, December 17th, 2018

furnace-technicianLiving in a warm climate does not mean that your heater isn’t every bit as important as your air conditioning system. It can be easy to let the memory of chilly winter nights slip away when we’re in the midst of another hot and humid summer season. However, they will be back before long! That means that you need a reliable heater in your home—and that may mean that you need a new furnace in Atlanta, GA.

Because we do live in a pretty warm area, a lot of homeowners can really push it in terms of how far they let their furnaces go before biting the bullet and replacing these vital systems. No matter where you live, you are going to want to get the most for your money. However, you ideally won’t be waiting for a complete breakdown before you go ahead and schedule your furnace replacement. Here are a few tips to help you decide if the time has come.

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.

Testimonial- Jerimiah K. in Decatur

Monday, November 28th, 2011

Annual maintenance of your heating system can catch problems early, as Jerimiah K. in Decatur knows! Here is what he wrote to use about his recent furnace replacement:

Our experience began when James Knox, our service technician, expertly discovered a potential future problem with our old HVAC unit during our semiannual service. He briefly went over our options with me, and suggested I talk further with Steve Kenyon, our salesperson. Steve helped us make a very informed decision in the replacement of our system. The staff arranged financing and prompt installation, allowing us to take full advantage of rebates and tax credits available to us. The installation process was very clean and professional. Our son, himself a plumber from out of state, happened to be at the house during the install, and was very impressed with the workmanship – truly first rate! The entire experience was a great one. We would certainly recommend Premier to anyone with HVAC needs.
