What to Expect When Atlanta HVAC Comes to Your Home
Sooner or later, you are going to need a cooling and heating expert to come to your property. Anything from simple maintenance to sizing a new system can be the reason. Below, we will discuss what to expect when Atlanta HVAC comes to your home.
1. Be Prepared
The best thing you can do for your tech and your property is prepare for the visit. This includes:
- Being at the property on time.
- Securing all pets.
- Know where all units of your HVAC system are located.
- Know where items such as gas meter, electrical panel, and related items are located.
- Have information on the property ready, such as square footage.
- If applicable, know what make and model you currently have and how old it is.
2. Know Your Home
Are you calling for a repair or systems check? Know your home and its HVAC issues. For example, are their spots in the home that are too cold or too hot? Are rooms not getting enough air? How is the thermostat performing? Has there been a jump in power bills?
3. Remove Obstacles
HVAC units are usually located in hard to access areas. This can include attics, basements, garages, and more. Make sure the access to your HVAC unit is free and open. As above this can help save time and money. For example, here in Atlanta we use heat pumps. This usually means an indoor and outdoor unit. It’s quicker and easier for us to get to them both if you have access points open, debris or obstacles clear, and all rowdy pets secured.
4. Have Your Questions Ready
No matter what the issue is, you will have questions. During maintenance you are going to want to know what condition the unit is in, estimated lifespan, etc. During repairs you may want to know warranty information on parts and labor. When purchasing a new system you will want to know about financing, rebates, and more. Have all of these ready and waiting before the tech arrives. You don't want to be web-searching as the work is being performed. You may get list of HVAC questions to ask before you buy by clicking here.
