New Air for the New Year

The new year is a time for making changes for the better! It coincides when sickness is also prevalent, making cleaner indoor air a priority for Georgia and Florida families. After a colder than normal winter for the south, it is time to consider a plan for furnace maintenance from Ray & Son – a furnace inspection performed by our skilled technicians will help to continually provide cleaner indoor air for better health, comfort and happiness indoors. You’re one phone call away from checking a resolution off your list!

Why Is Furnace Maintenance Important?

Furnace maintenance is critical to the health of your system and your home. Maintenance performed once a year for your furnace keeps wear and tear in check, verifies the system is working safety and removes obstacles causing poor performance and bad air quality.

With a furnace inspection and furnace maintenance, you’ll gain:

  • Optimal performance and comfort, as the HVAC system is able to operate correctly to deliver correct, even temperatures throughout all living areas.
  • Improved energy efficiency, as issues are corrected to eliminate energy burdens on the system. You’ll get the same great heating at a lower cost.
  • Fewer breakdowns, as heating issues are caught and corrected during your furnace inspection. Skipping the furnace inspection allows issues to worsen, causing breakdowns likely to be more extensive and expensive to fix.
  • Longer service life, as well-maintained HVAC systems typically last longer because they aren’t stressed or breaking down frequently.

What Happens During a Furnace Inspection?

Furnace inspections incorporate a thorough review of your system combined with furnace maintenance to restore proper functioning. Components of a furnace inspection include:

  • Inspecting thermostat for proper communication with the furnace and correct temperature readings in the home.
  • Reading voltage on motors and tightening electrical connections throughout the system to preserve safety and energy efficiency.
  • Lubrication of bearings and moving parts to eliminate the friction wearing out components and increasing energy consumption.
  • Inspecting condensate drain and clearing clogs to ensure moisture flows freely from the system to prevent humidity and moisture from building up in the system and home.
  • Cleaning of furnace compartments and components to reduce stress and wear and tear.
  • Inspect heat exchanger and burners, cleaning them to improve performance and ensuring these gas elements are working safely.
  • Inspect flue system to ensure combustion byproducts are venting correctly from the system, eliminating exposure risks to carbon monoxide.

Indoor Air Quality Benefits from Furnace Maintenance

Furnace maintenance also improves indoor air quality, helping your family breathe easily throughout the year. During a furnace inspection, your technician will change the air filter, providing your system the tool it needs to eliminate airborne contaminants. Your technician will also make sure air is moving properly through the system into your living areas and cycling back into the system, preventing stagnation and discomfort. The furnace’s flue system is checked to ensure byproducts such as carbon monoxide can safely escape the system and not back up into your home, where exposure is extremely dangerous.

Schedule your furnace inspection today with Ray & Son’s experienced furnace maintenance technicians. Let our family help your family achieve amazing indoor air quality for years to come!

Top 5 Ways to Save Money This Winter with Your Home’s HVAC Unit

The cold season can be a costly time for Georgia and Florida households, especially if your HVAC system isn’t running efficiently! With these 5 energy saving HVAC tips, you can cut household costs and lower your energy bills significantly! HVAC maintenance has a great impact on efficiency and performance and there are things you can do to help your heating and cooling system run better while consuming less energy.

Energy Saving HVAC Tip 1: HVAC Maintenance

Regular HVAC maintenance is the best thing you can do for your home’s heating and cooling system. HVAC maintenance should be performed twice per year: one visit prior to your heating season and one prior to your cooling season.
A system tune-up boosts energy-saving HVAC systems by restoring optimal performance. The harmful effects of wear and tear over heavy usage times are corrected, helping your system perform flawlessly and eliminating issues increasing energy use, such as loose connections, restricted airflow and more. When your heating and cooling system is performing better, it doesn’t need to use as much energy as it does when issues are present. You’ll benefit from improved comfort, lower energy bills and a longer system life.

Energy Saving HVAC Tip 2: Seal Air Leaks

Sealing air leaks throughout the home keeps more heating and cooling energy inside, where your family benefits from the energy consumed by the HVAC system. Leaks allow energy to escape and unconditioned outdoor air to infiltrate the home, forcing your HVAC system to work more to maintain comfortable conditions and using more energy.

Energy Saving HVAC Tip 3: Use Ceiling Fans

Most homeowners think of ceiling fans as a tool for cooling and when used properly, they are also a helpful tool to keep your home warm during the colder months. Set your ceiling fans to rotate clockwise when your heating system is in use.
A clockwise fan redistributes the warm air collecting at your ceiling, sending it back down where your family is so you can benefit from the warmth. You’ll experience more comfortable living areas and save money on heating costs.

Energy Saving HVAC Tip 4: Keep Vents Open

Blocked vents are a big problem in homes, keeping heat from reaching the living areas for which it’s intended. When a vent is blocked, you’ll find yourself cranking up the thermostat to achieve the temperatures you want, consuming excess energy and overworking the system. Blockages also cause heat and air pressure to back up in the HVAC system, causing overheating and potentially damaging the system.
Check your entire home, making sure floor vents and wall vents are not blocked by curtains, rugs, furniture toys and other items. Also, make sure the vent louvers are opened, allowing air to flow through.

Energy Saving HVAC Tip 5: Use Curtains Correctly

In the winter, use your curtains and blinds correctly to reduce the burden on your heating system. During periods of direct sunlight, open window coverings to allow the room to benefit from the solar heat gain pouring in. Your room will feel warmer without the use of your heating system. Close the window treatments when the sun goes down to “trap” warmth inside.
You’ll notice when it’s cold and dark outside, the area around your windows feels very cold! When warm air from your living areas comes into contact with cold glass panes, it loses heat as well. Use thermal window coverings to conserve more of your heat and prevent heat loss.

What are the signs you need heating repair in southern Georgia?

Winters in Georgia are relatively mild compared to those in states to the north. Having said that, a properly working furnace or heat pump is still needed in the winter to keep your home warm and cozy inside. If you want to avoid a furnace breakdown, you should know the signs you need heating repair.

The big three signs you need heating repair

Signs of furnace repair in southern GeorgiaFrom strange noises and smells to performance issues, this blog will go through the top signs that your furnace is on the verge of a breakdown, or already having problems.

The best way to prevent the need for repairs in the first place? Schedule a seasonal tune-up with the pros here at Ray & Son. If you do need 24/7 emergency service, contact the Ray & Son team.

1. Odd noises coming from the furnace

Strange noises are one of the most prominent (and loud) signs you need heating repair. You should never ignore any odd noises coming from your heat pump or furnace. Here are three prominent sounds, and what they could signal:

  • Banging: A problem with the ignition in a furnace will lead to the ever so slight buildup of gas, which can then “explode”, causing a popping or banging sound within the furnace. Over time, this can damage the system.
  • Rattling: This could indicate a part of the system that is loose and rattling while colliding with other parts or the metal of the system.
  • Humming: This could be a sign of a problem with your fan or capacitor. This will be much louder than the normal sounds the system makes while operating.

If you hear a banging, squeaking, rattling, or any other odd noises from the furnace, you should immediately call the professional heating repair technicians at Ray & Son.

2. Rising energy bills

Are your energy costs on the rise over the past few months? If you’ve experienced sticker shock upon opening your heating bill, it might be time to get your system inspected by an expert.

A malfunctioning furnace or heat pump is often times an inefficient one, and some systems will continue to run, but use far more energy than expected while doing so.

3. Furnace performance issues

No matter what you do or what you set the thermostat at, your home still feels like an icebox. Yet, your furnace is still technically running. This probably indicates a fault of some kind with the system.

One common problem is that your thermostat and furnace / heat pump aren’t communicating correctly, or your thermostat is taking incorrect temperature readings. If your thermostat mistakenly thinks it’s 85 in your home, it won’t signal to turn on the furnace. Our team can address this concern and confirm that your thermostat is pulling the right data.

Other performance issues can be the result of issues with the ignition, heat exchanger, or more.

Call Ray & Son for a heating inspection this winter

Always get your furnace checked by a professional technician. This is important to ensure that the furnace is properly repaired. Handing the repair job to an inexperienced technician may initially look like you are saving money, but it will end up costing you a lot in the long run due to inadequate repairs.

To get in touch with professional, NATE-certified heating repair technicians here in southern Georgia, contact our team at Ray & Son Heating and Air Conditioning. We’d love to help you with your heating needs this winter.

4 signs you need a new furnace for your home

You rely on your furnace to keep your family happy and warm during the winter. But, nothing lasts forever. Just like your car, microwave, and every mechanical thing that you own, your furnace will eventually break down and need to be replaced. In this blog, we’ll review the signs you need a new furnace.

If you live in Valdosta, Nashville, or other parts of southern Georgia / northern Florida, Ray & Son is a Carrier Factory-Authorized Dealer, and we offer in-home estimates on new systems. To get started, contact us today!

What are the 4 signs you need a new furnace in your home?

Read our blog for more on the signs you need a new furnace in your home.Here are the four signs that you need to make the switch to a new furnace or heating system:

#1. You’ve watched your energy bills spike

As it ages, a furnace becomes less energy-efficient, and requires more energy to create less heating. That’s because components endure wear-and-tear that reduces their ability to operate at the level they once did.

Heating is such a big part of your winter energy bills. Think about it this way: at what point would the cumulative increase in your energy bills start to represent a sizable chunk of what you would spend on a new furnace?

Here’s one way to find out: schedule an in-home estimate with our team for a new furnace. We’ll help you estimate your energy costs so that you can compare them to your current bills.

#2. You have an older furnace

Here’s the thing: most gas and electric furnaces last about 16-20 years, at most. Now, you may be squeezing a few more years out of your system—after all, every situation and system is different. However, even if your furnace has been blessed with an extraordinarily long life, you may want to think about replacing it.

This comes down to energy-efficiency, reliability, and comfort. Your older furnace may technically still work, but be failing on all three counts. An older furnace is probably far less efficient than a new one, spiking your monthly energy bills. It’s also more likely to break down: that’s more money out of pocket for repairs. And it may not even be heating your home the way you’d like!

An old furnace isn’t necessarily a bad thing. With a tune-up from our team, we can help it run better. But, at some point, you have to cut your losses and make the upgrade to a new system. An older furnace is one of the most prominent signs you need a new furnace in your home.

#3. You see cracks or damage to the furnace

Every time you turn on your furnace, that heat is interacting with the metal it’s made of, causing it to contract and expand. Over enough years, this can cause the metal to bend and crack. If your heat exchanger develops a crack, it represents a potentially dangerous situation for you and your home.

A cracked heat exchanger can emit carbon monoxide gas—a colorless and odorless gas that can be fatal to you and your family. If you suspect that your heat exchanger has cracked, call the fire department, and then give our team a call for furnace repair.

In most cases, replacing an older furnace’s heat exchanger is not cost-effective, and we’ll recommend a new furnace, which will actually save you money.

#4. You’re hearing strange noises

If your furnace makes strange noises, it could indicate that it’s in need of repair. An older furnace that has strange noises may have arrived at the end of its operational life.

Older furnaces tend to make squealing, rattling, popping, and banging noises. These noises represent an internal fault. While some of the noises can be remedied by a simple furnace tune-up, an older furnace may need to be replaced.

That’s because some sounds represent problems with expensive-to-replace internal components. For example, popping sounds probably mean something is wrong with the ignition system of the furnace.

HVAC 101: What are heat pumps and how do they work?

There’s a lot of jargon and industry terminology that gets tossed around in the HVAC business. There’s furnaces and heating systems, and then air conditioning and cooling units. Then, there’s a whole separate deal: heat pumps. But, just what are they, and how do they work?

In this blog post, we’ll review what heat pumps are, and what makes them different from traditional furnaces and air conditioners that people associate with the HVAC industry.

If you’re interested in learning more about putting a heat pump in your home, give Ray & Son a call at (229) 686-5531 or contact us online.

Heat PumpsWhat are heat pumps?

Heat pumps are a category of HVAC units that offer both cooling and heating. In short, heat pumps offer all the cooling of an air conditioner, with decent heating ability in the winter. This makes heat pumps a good fit for homes located in the southern half of the United States, where winters can be cold, but are rarely freezing.

How do heat pumps work?

These systems work by moving warmed or cooled air from one place to another, depending on the season.

When it’s hot outside, the heat pump removes warm air from the inside of the house and places it outside, like an air conditioner. In this “cooling mode,” the outdoor coil serves as an evaporator and the indoor cool works as a condenser.

In contrast, when it’s cold outside, the heat pump extracts any heat from the outside air and circulates it inside the home. While in “heating mode,” the outdoor coil serves as a condenser and the indoor coil serves as an evaporator—a flip from where things stood in the summer.

What advantages do heat pumps have over traditional HVAC systems?

One of the most significant benefits of heat pumps as compared to standard HVAC systems is obviously the reduced cost of only needing to purchase one system. There is no need to install a separate furnace or a separate air conditioner for your home: just one, unified system.

Heat pumps are also much more energy-efficient systems than traditional HVAC units. So, apart from saving money on upfront costs, you will also benefit in terms of reduced energy bills.

So, what’s the catch? Heat pumps are ideal for moderate climates. They are not effective in regions that face extreme temperatures.

This, however, makes them a good fit for southern Georgia, where we have hot summers but relatively mild winters.

Why it’s important to schedule seasonal furnace maintenance

Seasonal furnace maintenance tends to rank pretty low on most people’s list of important things to do in the fall. After all, children are starting school, the holidays are right around the corner, and life is hectic. Your furnace, on the other hand, is out-of-sight and out-of-mind.

However, getting a furnace checkup from the professionals at Ray & Son can not only save you money, but help you avoid emergency breakdowns in the winter. In this blog post, we’ll review why you should make a fall heating inspection your priority.

Ready to get started? Give Ray & Son a call at (229) 686-5531 or contact our team online.

Here’s 5 reasons to schedule your seasonal furnace maintenance

Pictured: Seasonal furnace maintenance is right around the corner when leaves change color.

Still not convinced about getting your heating system looked at this fall? Let’s work on changing your mind. Here are the five benefits of a heating tune-up:

1. Prevent emergency breakdowns

You use your furnace to stay warm during the winter. Like all mechanical systems, furnaces experience accelerated wear-and-tear when they are working the hardest.

However, furnaces can also be at risk for a breakdown when they’re turned on after a longer period of not being in use. Here in southern Georgia, that’s basically the entire spring and summer!

That’s why the best time for a checkup is in the fall before you turn the system on for the winter. (However, there’s no bad time for a tune-up if your system hasn’t had one in a long time!)

2. Get the most savings possible

Another benefit of scheduling heating maintenance during the fall is that you will be able to save more. A properly working furnace works efficiently without drawing extra power. That’s good for your energy bills and for your wallet.

To maximize your energy savings, schedule your furnace checkup in the fall. Our technicians will make sure your heating system is ready to operate at peak efficiency from the start, which means you have all winter to save.

3. Make sure your furnace is safe to operate

Safety is another reason why you should schedule heating maintenance during the fall. A malfunctioning furnace can pose a great risk. In some cases, a furnace that has a defect or problem can release carbon monoxide—a dangerous gas that is both colorless and odorless, making it difficult to detect.

For the best peace of mind, have the NATE-certified technicians at Ray & Son inspect your furnace before you turn that thermostat for the first time this fall.

4. Increase the lifespan of your furnace

Your heating system is a big part of your home—and a big investment. Protect it with regular maintenance from the pros at Ray & Son.

A furnace tune-up can actually help your furnace last longer and run better as it ages. Considering the cost of new furnace installation, any extra years you get out of your furnace is worth the cost of a tune-up.

5. Keep your home warm and comfortable

A properly tuned unit will work efficiently to maintain optimal winter comfort inside your home. The money paid to service the heating unit will be worth it as you will be able to enjoy a relaxed and comfortable environment inside your home.

Trust Ray & Son with your furnace and heating checkup!

We get it: remembering to schedule seasonal furnace maintenance is difficult. That’s why we have what we call our Comfort Club. With regularly scheduled tune-ups that we call you for and a number of other perks, it’s a great value!

5 Tips To Prep Your HVAC Systems Before Leaving For Vacation This Winter

HVAC Systems before Leaving for a Vacation

Headed to the tropics? If so, don’t forget a great shady hat—and to prepare your furnace before you leave.

Are you thinking about taking off for a vacation? If the answer is yes, you should not forget to take care of your most trusted friend—in a mechanical manner of speaking.

What else can you rely on to keep warm during the summers and cozy during the winters? Your furnace or heating system is a necessity these days without which our life on this earth would be somewhat miserable, particularly for those residing in the southeastern parts of the US.

Whether you are preparing for a tropical getaway during the winters or a cabin during the summers, it’s important that you prep your HVAC before leaving.

Here are 5 tips that can help ensure that the heating and cooling device remains in great shape when you come back to your home after the vacation.

1. Set the right temperature

Before reading on, please take a moment of your time to answer this quick quiz: When heading for a vacation it is better to turn off the HVAC system. Is this statement true or false?

If you answered true to the above question, then you are wrong.

While turning off the HVAC system when heading off for a vacation may help in conserving the energy, we would not recommend you this.

The reason is that the heating and cooling system is designed to run continuously. Keeping the system running will prevent frozen pipes during the winters and development of moisture and mold during the summers. So, you should turn the knob of the thermostat about five degrees higher than your comfortable temperature before going on a summer vacation, and five degrees lower than the comfortable temperature before going on a winter vacation.

2. Install a surge protector

Another important thing that you should do before taking a vacation is to install a surge protector for the system. This is an effective and inexpensive way to protect your costly HVAC system from being toasted due to a power spike or outage. You can contact the local HVAC repair company to know about the best surge protector for the system.

3. Install fresh air filters

Installing a new air filter is always a good idea. But it’s especially so when going out of town for a vacation. This will ensure that your unit does not take extra energy when operating. A clean air filter will make sure that the HVAC system works efficiently and does not break down when you are away.

4. Clear debris from the exterior unit

Make sure that you clear leaves, sticks, tree limbs, and grass clippings near the exterior unit that may hinder the flow of air. Clogged air vents can strain the HVAC unit performance leading to a mechanical failure. That’s why it’s important that you clear the nearby debris and ensure about two spaces around the unit.

5. Get it checked by a professional

The fifth and most important advice before leaving for a vacation is to get the HVAC unit checked by a professional technician. An experienced professional can carry out the necessary maintenance and repair works that will ensure it is running smoothly when you come back from the vacation.

5 Tips To Save Money On Your Heating Bills This Spring

Save Money on Heating BillsMost people are troubled by high heating bills during the winters. For some people, the high energy bills cause a great financial strain.

In order to keep the energy bills down and prevent them from making a big dent on your wallets, you can take certain simple steps that we will discuss in this article.

1. Make the best use of the sun

The bright burning orb in the sky can help you to keep the rooms warm during the winters. To benefit from the free energy of the sun, you should open the curtains on the south facing windows during the winter days. And when the sun goes down, you should cover the window to keep the warm air inside the rooms.

This will allow you to avoid cranking up the thermostat in order to stay warm. Every degree that you set the thermostat lower will result in great savings in the heating bills.

2. Take advantage of ceiling fans

Homes that are ventilated during the winters will require less heating. You can make strategic use of ceiling fans to improve the airflow. Setting the ceiling fan to move clockwise will help keep the room warm as it will gently push the hot air downwards.

As a result, you don’t have to set the thermostat at a high temperature, saving you money in terms of reduced energy bills.

3. Cover the windows with heavy drapery

Heavy drapery that fully covers the window will prevent heat from escaping the room. The drapery will act as insulation, keeping the room warm during the winters and cool during the summers. You will require less heating to keep the room warm, keeping the heating bills down.

4. Keep the oven door open

Through the efficient use of the stored heat inside the oven, you can save some heating bills. Leaving the oven door ajar after cooking will let the warm air circulate in the kitchen. The heat from the open oven door will keep the room warm, so you can set the thermostat at a lower temperature.

5. Consider getting an energy audit

An energy audit is recommended if you want to find out how you can improve the heating efficiency of the home. Through the energy audit of the house, you will learn about where the air might be leaking from the house. You will also know whether you can save money by insulation of the house.

Ray & Son offers energy audits to homeowners in southern Georgia.

Call Ray & Son for more on cutting your heating bills this spring

In the end, you should always keep the furnace tuned to ensure maximum energy efficiency. If you keep the system tuned up regularly, it will keep the energy bills down. In case you want expert help for repairing of your furnace, you can contact Ray & Son Heating and Air Conditioning.

HVAC Inspections Matter: Schedule Annual Heating & Cooling Maintenance

Routine HVAC inspections matterIt’s a question we get a lot: Are routine HVAC inspections really important for my cooling and heating systems?

Some people assume that there is no such need for a routine inspection and paying any sum to a technician results in a waste of money.

The fact, however, is that routine inspection is essential for any heating and cooling device. In the long run, it will save you a lot of money. The cost of annual inspection will be more than worth it in the end as you will less likely pay for costly repairs.

Here is a list of four benefits of regular inspection of your HVAC system. Contact Ray & Son for your AC tune-up, or give us a call for a furnace tune-up.

Fewer emergency repairs

Regular HVAC inspection will allow you to save time, money, and stress due to a breakdown of the system midway during intense cold or hot season. Annual inspection by a qualified and experienced HVAC technician will ensure that the system keeps operating at its peak efficiency.

The technician will be able to identify potential problems and take the necessary steps to ensure that the system does not experience a major fault. The cost of annual inspection will be far less than the cost involved in an emergency fix. Emergency repairs hit hard on the budget and cause a great inconvenience to the individuals.

Greater savings on energy bills

Annual inspection of the HVAC system will also allow you to save money. When the system performs at its peak level, it will ensure that the system remains energy efficient. A fault in the heating or cooling device makes the system draw more energy that results in increased bills.

By having the system serviced regularly be a qualified technician, it will not make a dent in your wallet due to higher energy bills.

Increased lifespan of the system

An HVAC system that is clogged with dirt, dust or other debris does not work properly in heating or cooling the room. It will result in greater strain on the system that will result in a breakdown. As a result, you have to pay extra for replacement or repair of the system.

Annual inspection of the HVAC system will help extend the life of the equipment. The technician will clear the system interior during routine service to ensure that it keeps on performing well for a long duration.

Improved quality of air

Apart from making the system work harder in heating or cooling the room, accumulation of dirt and dust inside the system can greatly degrade the air quality inside the home. This can result in various health problems including eye or nose irritation, asthma attack, or flu-like systems.

The regular infection will reduce the airborne contaminants and ensure a comfortable and healthy living environment.
