Emergency Home Heating Repairs
At Byrd Heating and Air Conditioning we understand that heating system emergencies can happen at any time. When heating systems fail in the middle of the night or early on a Sunday morning we don’t expect you to go without heat until regular business hours. There is a service technician on-call with our company 24 hours a day to respond to heating emergencies who is ready for dispatch to your Garden City GA home.
Non-Emergency Home Heating Repair Appointments
Fortunately, most situations related to home heating in Garden City GA are not an emergency. This gives you more time to request an estimate and ask questions about our company and our services. Our technicians have all completed post-secondary HVAC training. They also participate in the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) program. NATE is recognized across the industry as providing the highest quality of technician training and testing programs. Technicians can become certified in one or more specialty HVAC areas. This ensures that they have the knowledge and skills to provide you with outstanding service. Our technicians repair and install all makes and models of heating equipment.

We Can Help You Choose a New Carrier Heating System
Many home and business owners don’t realize just how important it is for their heating equipment to have high energy efficiency ratings. You may have purchased an inefficient system years ago that costs more to operate than it should. If you are considering putting in a new gas furnace or electric heat pump to improve your energy efficiency, our installation specialists can help you choose the right unit. We will help you evaluate current energy efficiency ratings, your budget and any other concerns that you may have.
To get the best new furnace, look for an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating that is higher than 78 percent. That is the minimum acceptable standard enforced by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Most Carrier models have 90 to 95 percent AFUE ratings. The AFUE for a gas furnace is calculated by determining the amount of fuel the unit burns to heat your home or business. A furnace with a 90 percent AFUE rating wastes only 10 percent of its available fuel by venting it outdoors.
Heat pumps are rated for energy efficiency using the Heat Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF). This rating must be 7.7 or higher. It is calculating by dividing the total energy output of a home or business in watt-hours by the amount of heat the unit disperses in British Thermal Units (BTU). Heat pumps last for up to 20 years and are generally considered a safer alternative than gas furnaces. Many local power companies offer rebates to homeowners who convert from a gas furnace to an electric heat pump.
Geothermal heating is another option that is available to you. If you are interested in innovative heating solutions, contact our company to discuss the possibility of installing a geothermal heating system. We will send an installation technician to your home to determine if you are a good candidate for this technology.
Geothermal heat pumps are installed approximately six feet below your property line. This technology takes advantage of the consistently warm temperature that is found at this level of the earth’s surface. Our technicians install equipment that pipes the warm air into your home. In the summer, the process is reversed to give you cool air. All of our installation technicians have completed training with the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association.
Don’t Forget Your Heating System Tune-Ups
You can significantly add to the lifespan of your heating equipment by requesting a professional tune-up from Byrd Heating and Air Conditioning once a year. We offer comprehensive preventative maintenance appointments to help your equipment operate at peak efficiency throughout the winter months. If we discover any repair issues during the tune-up, we let you know so you can schedule another appointment. There are many benefits to annual preventative maintenance, including lower utility bills, the need for fewer repairs and improved indoor comfort.
