While some common heating and cooling issues can be identified and corrected by a talented do-it-yourself expert, others require the expertise and knowledge of a trained HVAC technician. Your furnace or air conditioner contains sensitive equipment and wiring that can be easily damaged by inexperienced homeowners. Additionally, some troubleshooting procedures require specialized tools and technical training to ensure safety. At Merrell & Associates Inc., our tech team can provide the expert repair services needed to ensure your comfort even in the hottest Georgia summers.
Ductwork Repair and Replacement
Leaky or too-small ducts can reduce the efficiency of your home heating and cooling system and may result in higher utility bills throughout the year. Sealing and adjusting the ductwork inside your home can allow you to enjoy increased comfort while lowering your heating and cooling costs. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends that any major ductwork projects be performed by trained professionals to ensure that these systems are balanced and provide the best results in the residential environment.
Loose wiring, tripped circuit breakers and other electrical issues can present serious fire risks to your home and your family. By hiring a knowledgeable HVAC technician with the tools and the expertise to resolve these problems quickly and effectively, you can manage these risks and restore your air conditioner or furnace to working order quickly and with minimal risk to your equipment and your home.
Damaged Heat Exchangers
Heat exchangers are a critical component of your home heating system. Cracks or breaks in these devices, which can result in carbon monoxide leaks, can be very difficult to spot for novices without the proper tools. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, carbon monoxide can cause serious illness or death in those exposed to high concentrations of this colorless, odorless, gas. By scheduling regular maintenance, you can ensure your family’s safety while increasing the longevity of your HVAC system.
