When we think of the weather in Atlanta, most of us contemplate the heat and humidity and how to battle that far more than we consider frigid temperatures. Nonetheless, Atlanta does have winters, and this season can be downright chilly. Sometimes we even experience sudden, shocking cold. Especially due to its rarity, this last can be not only uncomfortable, but deleterious to health. Having central heat in the home is one way to stay comfortable in the norms, and to protect against extremes.
Central heat, as the name implies, emanates from a single source in the home, heating the air and then sending it through a series of ducts to heat the entire home. Warming the whole building to the same temperature is fairly cost-effective as it prevents the leaching of heat from a warm room by a colder one – which in the end causes the heater to work harder. However, most systems can be set up with ducts that can be closed off, so that a room that is rarely used can be shut off from the rest of the house and offer additional savings.
Any home that also has air conditioning will most likely be working off the forced-air, ducting system, but a well-trained Atlanta heating and air contractor should be able to run over the list of options with a customer. It is often possible to upgrade a home’s existing set up by incorporating newer equipment or services, rather than overhauling the entire house. It is best to thoroughly investigate all the possibilites to find the one that will work best in any given situation.
There are other aspects of home maintenance and safety to be considered along with the installation of a central heating system. A functional unit should not be emitting any carbon monoxide, but it is best to have a CO detector, or several, in the home to protect against unforeseen eventualities. The dealer may be a able to recommend a particularly good detector or point out the best model for the configuration of a particular house.
„It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity,“ is true to some extent year-round in the Atlanta area. While most central heating systems will act in some fashion to pull humidity out of the air, some homes, areas or individuals have greater needs than others, and a system that dehumidifies the addition of a separate unit is worth looking into. Again, the HVAC contractor may be able to offer something as part of an install package, or at least give advice on the best way to proceed.
The final area of importance is the service package. While there is generally an extra expense in this, maintaining the heating system is an important part of making sure it does not break down the first time it is switched on on a cold night. There are many things the homeowner can do, and the contractor can offer a range of services best done by a professional to find what will work best for a given homeowner.Immobilienmakler Heidelberg Makler Heidelberg
