refrigerant leak

Now that the weather is getting hotter, air conditioners will be running full blast. More often than not, these air conditioners have refrigerant leaks, which can cause some damage to your air conditioner and increase your electricity bill. Low levels of refrigerant put more stress on your compressor, which can lead to damage in most parts of the compressor. This can lead to costly repair bills, which is why you should have your air conditioner checked for leaks at least once a year. (more…)

How to Inspect the HVAC System in a New Home

Posted by Empire Blog at 9:14 am on February 26, 2015


New home purchases are often daunting tasks, and such decisions should never be taken lightly. Home ownership is equally rewarding and challenging, and when done right, is one of the best investments a person can make in his or her lifetime.

First-time buyers often get distracted by curb appeal and aesthetic updates. Although important in their own right, it is the condition of the “guts” of the home that matters most. The cost to replace an outdated or broken Atlanta HVAC system is far from cheap, which is why hiring an inspector who knows what to look for is an absolute must. (more…)

Consequences of not checking your heater

As Atlanta heating and air conditioning specialists, we often advise our clients about the common-sense care and maintenance of their HVAC system. While we would never advocate for taking on major repairs on your own, we want you to take regular precautions with your HVAC system.

HVAC maintenance

When it comes to having maintenance done, it is best not to push it off. Keeping up with simple routine check-ups can save your business from future incidents. If the heating and air conditioner were to go out in your business during the heat of summer, or the colder months, your clients will be miserable. Customers are not very pleasant when they become hot and sweaty or to frigid while waiting on your services.  (more…)

Inspecting Your Heating and Air Conditioning System

Posted by Empire Blog at 11:10 am on October 21, 2014

With winter fast approaching, it’s the ideal time to have a HVAC tuneup. Right now our cold-weather promotion begins with a heating system tuneup for only $89. For any other system at the same address, you only have to pay an additional $79. We’ll even throw in a high-efficiency air filter or a Wi-Fi thermostat if you have a new furnace installed this fall.

Maintenance Benefits

Keeping your HVAC system in good condition rewards you in many ways. You save money with a well-maintained system because it will function more efficiently and use up less energy to keep you safe and comfortable. Additionally, you may delay buying new equipment for a number of years by maintaining the current equipment .

Replacing or cleaning your system’s filters regularly also improves the quality of your indoor air. This can be especially beneficial to household members who suffer from seasonal allergies and those with very young children, fragile elderly or chronically ill family members. (more…)

Summer HVAC Maintenance Tips

Posted by Empire Blog at 10:25 am on August 29, 2014

Summer is in full effect, and the daily temperatures are not getting any cooler. With recent heatwaves causing digits to exceed the 100-degree mark in many parts of the country, there has never a better time to have a fully functioning AC system.

Ice-cold air does more than keep you and your family relaxed — it keeps heat strokes and other life-threatening health conditions at bay. It is our firm belief that no home should be without air conditioning, especially for residents in Atlanta.
