What’s the Perfect Heating Temperature?

Monday, February 14th, 2022

Imagine a world where your heating system can only heat your home to a certain temperature with no fluctuation. Your home would be frustratingly uncomfortable, your thermostat would be practically useless, and you’d probably be looking for alternatives to a standard heater. Luckily, that little bit of customization allows us to change the temperature in our homes and keep things comfortable to our own standards.

The Smell of a Malfunctioning Heater

Monday, November 23rd, 2020

It’s that time of year where we not only turn our heaters on for the first time, but really start depending on them. Night after night things are only going to get chillier, and it’s going to be up to our heating systems to keep us cozy and comfortable in our beds. Our pets, whether they’re cats or dogs, depend on this heater as well since they don’t get the snuggly body warmth that we do in our cozy beds.

However, a furnace that needs heating repair in Rincon, GA isn’t always going to be noticeable by the noises or the heating bill. Sometimes it will emit a funky smell that you catch a whiff of.

When to Replace or Repair Your Heater

Monday, March 23rd, 2020

Your heater is vital to the comfort and efficiency of your home. The decision to repair or replace your system is just as important, and requires a thorough knowledge of how the system works and how long it’s supposed to last.

Unfortunately, most homeowners don’t have access to the details of this type of information. They must rely on their local HVAC contractor to give them the details about the condition of their heater, the efficiency levels, and whether it’s time to replace the system instead of performing a heating repair in Savannah, GA. This can be incredibly difficult, especially when dealing with an amateur HVAC technician who doesn’t know what they’re talking about.

That’s why we can offer some sound advice to help you figure out whether your heater needs a repair or a total replacement. And—if you’re looking for an HVAC team that isn’t full of amateurs, we’re available!

How Often Does a Dual Fuel Hybrid System Need Repairs?

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

When combining two systems to heat your home, there can be some concern that this may create bigger, more frequent repair problems. The truth is, you’ll deal with the same kind of problems with a hybrid heating system as you would with any other system. Why? Because each system works independently, so the problems that can develop are the same for you as other homeowners with separate systems. Any kind of heating repair for any system in Savannah should always be handled by experts, so if you are experiencing any problem with your heating, contact AAction Air today!


Frequency of repairs for any whole-home system tends to run in accordance with the number of moving parts a system has and its average lifespan. Heat pumps have very few moving parts and an average lifespan of 20-25 years. Furnaces have a number of moving parts, particularly in the blower assembly, and an average lifespan of 15-20 years. However, the gas furnace doesn’t operate as much as a single gas furnace, so this takes some wear and tear off the system. The same can be said of the system’s heat pump: because the heat pump can switch to the back-up furnace in very cold weather, it, too, doesn’t have to work under highly stressful conditions. The bottom line is that while no one can predict how many repairs your heating system will need, a hybrid heating system should have no more, and could have less, than more traditional systems.

Types of Repairs

Here are some of the kinds of repairs you may see with a hybrid heating system:

  • Issues with the heat pump – heat pumps can develop refrigerant leaks, motor issues with the compressor and/or issues with the condenser.
  • Issues with the furnace blower – the fan, or blower, of a furnace can develop problems with the motor, the fan blades and the fan belt.
  • Issues with lighting – if the pilot isn’t lighting, there may be an issue with the electronic ignition, the gas valve or a problem with the nozzle.

A hybrid heating system is an effective, dual-action system that shouldn’t require any extra heating repair in Savannah. If you have concerns about your hybrid heating system, call us today!
