Many people are not aware of how long their heating systems might work before they need replaced. If your furnace installation was over 25 years ago, you should plan on having it replaced. If you are not sure how old your system is, you can call a reputable furnace repair company to inspect your system and make the necessary recommendations.
Professional heating repairmen have the knowledge and training it takes to assess your residential heating system in Atlanta in order to find and correct potential problems. If you have noticed your system is not cycling properly and seems to be turning on and off too frequently, this can be a sure sign that something is wrong. If you have a newer system, it may be as simple as moving your thermostat to the correct place in your home, or that your home is not properly insulated, or possibly the duct work is not installed properly; but the only way to determine these things is to have it checked by calling for central heating repair services.

Single-Stage or Two-Stage Air Conditioner?
Is it time to invest in a new air conditioner for your home? In your research, you may have come across the terms single-stage and two-stage. Do you know what that means, or how to choose the right one for you? Phil Montgomery, owner of Atlanta Heating and Air Conditioning, explains what you need to know.
“The biggest difference between these units is the type of compressor the unit uses,” says Montgomery. “A single-stage air conditioner uses a compressor that only has one level of operation. That means it will only cool your home at maximum blast.”
A two-stage unit, however, operates on two levels. That means that on the hottest days, it will work at the highest level, and on milder days it will operate at a lower level. A two-stage unit has increased energy efficiency because it isn’t running on full blast every time you use it. That means lower energy bills for you.
