How Do You Know You Need Air Conditioning Service?
Simply, there are three things to consider:
My air conditioning is behaving strangely...
DIfferent than the seasonal changes that affect your unit's performance. This might include blowing hot air, frequent stops and starts or spikes in your utility bill.
My AC unit is making strange sounds...
These are different from the usual sounds it makes when it comes on and shuts off. Typical descriptions inlude clicks, screeches, squeals, hisses or grinding noises.
An odd odor is coming from my AC unit...
Burning or musty odors are a sure sign you need an Estes professional to take a look at your system. Not only could this be a health hazard, but it could also be physically dangerous.
WAIT!!! Before You Call...
Make sure to double-check the following:
- It may sound too simple, but we guarantee you'll feel better checking your thermostat's correct settings before calling us for help.
- Walk around the outdoor AC unit and check for debris. It's common for plants to grow too close and obstruct airflow. Sometimes after the winter or storms, debris, including leaves, twigs, and other yard waste, gets trapped in the vents. Clear away plants from around the AC unit. If something's stuck in the blades or it looks like a blade is bent, call Estes.
- We cannot stress this enough. A clogged filter compromises the performance of your heating and air equipment. So check it monthly and change as needed.
Air Conditioning Replacement and AC Installation
What to Consider When Faced with this Decision
It's rarely an easy decision to replace an air conditioning unit. It's a significant investment in your home, and most people wait until it's necessary. We understand this and offer free estimates and second opinions for new HVAC equipment. We've served the Atlanta community for 70 years now and offer finance options with approved credit to make the decision easier.
When we consult with a homeowner, we carefully assess each home and household's needs. The structure of the building and the homeowner's energy goals figure into our consultant's calculations.
It's crucial to size the air conditioner appropriately. Too big is just as bad as too small. Trust Estes Services to make this big investment an easy one. After all, it's not just comfort. Air conditioning is often about health and safety too!
Maintenance Membership Plans & Financing
Staying Cool Doesn't Have to Hurt Your Wallet
Air Conditioning Maintenance
Tommy Estes, 3rd Generation CEO, pioneered the concept of the Maintenance Agreement and now it's a big part of our company. Why? Because regular maintenance saves customers money, time and hassles.
Regular service helps your air conditioning system run more efficiently and cost less to operate. Professional maintenance keeps warranties valid and prevents more costly repairs. Neglect of any machine is a recipe for problems including breakdowns.
Air Conditioning Equipment Financing
There are many benefits to air conditioning finance options. Whether you'd like to improve your home's air quality and comfort or you're faced with a breakdown on summer's hottest day, we've got you covered.
The advantages include the ability to spread out payments and the immediate energy savings from a more efficient air conditioning system. Besides, it's more than comfort; it's often about health and safety.
If you find the cost of repairing an air conditioner significant, ask yourself, is my current air conditioner efficient? Your home builder may have installed the bare minimum. This might be an opportunity to spend a little more and upgrade from an okay air conditioner to a great one.
Also, consider the age of your current system. In the south, our air conditioners work hard and last less than the national average. If your air conditioner is close to 8-10 years old and has had frequent problems, strongly consider an upgrade.
Finance options make the payments convenient; you immediately save on utilities with a more efficient AC unit, and your warranty has a fresh start.
Making Sense of Manufacturer Legal Mumbo-Jumbo
Warranty coverage varies by manufacturer and by model. One of the reasons we partnered with Carrier many years ago was because of the quality of their products. We stand behind the equipment we represent and it's easy to be confident with Carrier in your corner!
In general, air conditioners and heat pumps have two main warranty coverages. One is for the compressor, often the most expensive component to replace. Be sure you ask about this before you purchase or have any new equipment installed.
Most warranties are written plainly and are easy to understand. Requirements are fairly basic. Most of the time it includes timely registration after the professional installation date and regular upkeep. Don't forget to register your products immediately!
Neglect of your equipment may void your warranty, so take advantage of our maintenance membership plan to reduce your risk. For specific details, refer to the manufacturer information and talk to your Estes Services professional. We love questions, so don't be shy!
