  • review rating 5  After dealing with problems with two other HVAC repair services, I decided to give Clockwork a try. I'm so glad I did. After learning that my system was incorrectly wired during installation 5 years earlier, the repair was simple. Install the correct Thermostat, and rewire the system. It's amazing how well my system works now. Thank you Mack C, and thank you for your military service.

  • review rating 5  I am very happy with this company. They have helped me before but today I felt like they went above and beyond. I called in with an emergency (it turned out not to be but I was very concerned about a smell from my AC and water on the unit), they did not have any availability for same day. However after scheduling for the next day, I got a call back that they have moved some things around and they got someone out to my house within 2 hours of calling. They absolutely could have just made me wait but went above and beyond to get someone out same day. I highly recommend this company!

  • review rating 5  This was the most professional group I’ve worked with in a long time. Very efficient and on time. Job was completed on time and as promised. All team members were very professional and courteous. Would highly recommend this company.

    thumb Shirley Baker
  • review rating 5  My experience with Clockwork has been nothing short of excellent. I called 4 other AC companies when my air went out 2 hours before a party I was hosting. Clockwork was the only one who even offered to come after hours. Jesse had me cooling quickly and was so professional. My family owns an AC company in Florida so we know what to expect. From the communication in the office and professionalism of the tech, this is what a service company should strive to be! THANK YOU!

Does The Outside Temperature Affect My AC?

Even as conditions outside fluctuate drastically, you depend on your air conditioner to maintain a consistent temperature in your home. It’s important to understand, though, that changing outside temperatures can have some dramatic effects on your cooling equipment. Comprehending these effects can benefit both you and your air conditioner. It will allow you to use your AC more efficiently and prolong its life, ensuring cold air even on the hottest days. The team at Clockwork Heating and Air Conditioning in Athens has put together this guide to help you understand how temperature differences affect your air conditioner.

How Your Air Conditioner Functions

To understand how the outside temperature can affect your air conditioner, it’s important to first grasp how your air conditioner cools your home. One of the main ways the air conditioner provides cool air is by utilizing thermodynamics to move heat from one place to another. Your air conditioner sends cold refrigerant into your home and through its coils. A fan sits under these coils and blows uncooled air over them. As the air flows over the coils, the heat in the air moves into the cold refrigerant and is transferred outside.

Once outside, this heat has to be expelled, which means the refrigerant needs to be hotter than the air surrounding it. To accomplish the process, your air conditioner utilizes a compressor. This device compresses the refrigerant, which heats it up immensely. The heat is then expelled as the refrigerant circulates through the outdoor coils before entering your home once more.

A Hot Subject

The key to expelling the heat from the refrigerant into the outside air is that the refrigerant must be hotter than the surrounding atmosphere. If the refrigerant is the same temperature or colder, it will retain the heat, resulting in a lack of cooling capacity. You can begin to see, then, how the outside air temperature can affect the work that your air conditioner has to do. If the air temperature is fairly low, say 70 degrees, your compressor only has to get the refrigerant up to 71 degrees or higher for the its heat to be expelled. However, if the air temperature is significantly warmer, say 95 degrees, the compressor has to heat the refrigerant at least 25 degrees higher to be able to expel heat.

Ultimately, the main component in your air conditioner that has to work harder when it’s hot outside is your compressor. Incidentally, this component is probably the cause of the most service calls during the summer. Especially if a compressor hasn’t been properly inspected and maintained, the extra effort it must exert during hot temperatures can push it to the point of failure. This results in a very uncomfortable home until a technician is able to come and repair your system.

Humidity Is Another Factor

Another characteristic of warm air is that it can hold more moisture than cool air. Typically, the warmer the air is in a particular location, the more humid that air will be. When it comes to your air conditioner, this can have a fairly significant impact on its operation. That’s because your air conditioner doesn’t simply remove heat from the air; it decreases humidity as well. Air with lower humidity feels cooler and more comfortable.

However, if there is warm air outdoors and that air is unusually humid, your air conditioner will have to take extra time to remove the moisture from it. When air with humidity levels higher than normal enters your home, it causes the AC to work longer as it tries to remove as much of the moisture as possible.

Trustworthy Technicians

In the end, even though your air conditioner has to work harder when it’s hot outside, that’s what it’s designed to do. The important thing is that you properly prepare your AC to succeed when the going gets tough. That means partnering with a trusted teammate like Clockwork Heating and Air Conditioning in Athens, GA, to ensure your cooling equipment is properly repaired and maintained as you head into summer. Similarly, as you head into the cold season, Clockwork Heating and Air Conditioning can help you prepare your furnace so that you stay nice and warm all winter long. In either case, we can install a new system for you if that’s necessary. To help you stay healthy, we also offer indoor air quality testing. We’ve served this community for over 30 years, and we offer 24/7 availability for emergency repairs. If your air conditioner is struggling to keep up with the warm weather, give us a call today.

What are the Types of Smart Thermostats?

Smart Thermostats and The Different Types Available

Since heating and cooling your Athens home makes up one of the largest portions of your energy use, it makes sense to limit the time your HVAC system spends running. While there are several good methods for improving the efficiency of your HVAC system, one of the most straightforward is to upgrade your thermostat.

While a mechanical thermostat requires manually changing the set temperature, a smart thermostat constantly calibrates the settings to your needs. Thanks to the increasing popularity of smart thermostats, there are now several options available.

The Basics of Smart Thermostats

Before we dive into the different types of smart thermostats, it’s a good idea to take a moment to fully understand what makes them so convenient. The main advantage that smart thermostats offer over other types of thermostats is the ability to sense when you’re home. Thus, even if you forget to change your settings, your smart thermostat can compensate for you, ensuring your HVAC system is always running at optimum efficiency.

Another benefit is the ability to operate the thermostat from anywhere through an app on your phone. Used correctly, these two features can help you save quite a bit of money on utility costs to help make up for the higher initial cost of the thermostat.

Geofencing Thermostats

A geofence is an invisible electronic boundary that’s placed around a certain location. When you pass through this boundary, an app on your phone senses your location, triggering any number of actions.

In the case of a geofencing thermostat, the idea is to turn your HVAC system on or off when you pass through the boundary. Geofencing is an effective method to tell your thermostat that you’re truly away from home and not just taking a long nap in another room. Plus, since it uses your phone to sense your location, it’s one less thing you’ll have to worry about.

The potential downsides to a geofencing thermostat all involve your relative location as you go throughout your day. To provide an adequate amount of time for the HVAC system to respond, most geofencing thermostats use a circle that is a few miles in diameter. This could pose a problem if you’re visiting a neighbor within that circle.

Behavioral Learning

When most people think of a smart thermostat, they’re likely thinking of a behavioral learning thermostat. This is one of the most popular types of smart thermostats that we at Clockwork Heating and Air install.

These thermostats use motion sensors that are built directly into the thermostat to try and determine when your home is occupied. They back up this motion sensing with algorithmic learning that can automatically adjust the temperature of your home based on living patterns that the thermostat notices you follow.

This prevents any missed opportunities for energy savings if you change your daily routine but forget to change your thermostat to match. The one downside of a behavioral learning thermostat is that if you aren’t in the same room as the device for a long period of time, the system may shut down. Of course, if you have the app on your phone, this is an easy fix.

Multiple Sensors

To help overcome the weakness of behavioral learning thermostats, some thermostats use multiple motion sensors in several rooms.

Multiple sensors allow these thermostats to detect fairly accurately if you’re home. You’ll likely never have to correct the thermostat by checking in on the app. Given this different approach to motion detection, some thermostats with multiple motion sensors do not employ algorithmic learning to make changes for you if you change your daily routine.

Trusted Expertise

In most cases, smart thermostats are marketed as a do-it-yourself installation. To ensure proper operation, however, we at Clockwork Heating and Air recommend having a professional install your new thermostat. This is especially crucial if you have an older four-wire thermostat as an incorrect installation could harm your system.

In addition to installing thermostats, we at Clockwork Heating and Air can take care of just about any other home comfort need that you may have. We can maintain, repair, and install all types of air conditioners and furnaces. Our team can also test your indoor air quality to ensure you’re breathing healthy air. If it’s time to upgrade your thermostat, don’t hesitate to give us a call at Clockwork Heating and Air today.

How to Add Home Equity with HVAC Upgrades

Increase Your Home Equity with an HVAC Upgrade!

If you’re thinking about putting your home on the market soon, you’re probably looking for ways to increase the selling price. Some popular improvements include kitchen and bathroom renovations, exterior landscaping updates, and new flooring.

While all of these additions may be worthwhile, one of the most beneficial investments you can make to your Athens home is to upgrade your HVAC equipment. Keep reading to learn how to increase home equity by upgrading your HVAC system with Clockwork Heating and Air.

Why It Helps

When most people think about home renovations, they think about what they can see. Since an HVAC system is something that’s not immediately visible, it’s easy to overlook its importance. For discerning buyers, however, the condition of the HVAC equipment can make all the difference in their purchase decision.

One big reason why new HVAC equipment may sway a buyer is that this equipment can be quite expensive. When someone is investing in a new home, they don’t want to be faced with other major expenses right after they move in. If they know for sure that their HVAC equipment has been added recently, it will put their minds at ease and make them much more likely to buy the home.

Another benefit of good HVAC equipment is that it shows the level of care you put into your home. It’s easy to, as the saying goes, put “lipstick on a pig.” In other words, if your home is falling apart, it’s easy to get it looking good for long enough to sell it. Because of this, most people who are trying to make a quick sell don’t invest in the mechanical systems of a home.

Therefore, by going above and beyond by installing new HVAC equipment in your home, you give the buyer the sense that you take care of all parts of your home, even those that can’t be seen. Even if the rest of your home is a little dated, you will give prospective buyers confidence that there are “good bones.”

Another important thing to remember is that if you do leave shoddy HVAC equipment in place, you will likely be found out. If the prospective buyers don’t discover it when they’re walking through your home, then the home inspector will undoubtedly discover it when they’re running tests on the mechanical systems. Do yourself a favor, then, and upgrade your HVAC equipment.

What to Upgrade

Now that you know the “why” of upgrading your home’s HVAC equipment, it’s important to know the “what” and “how.” Before you go all-out and replace all of your system components, it’s important to consider what will give you the most bang for your buck.

The thermostat is a great place to start your HVAC system upgrade with Clockwork Heating and Air. If you have an older mechanical thermostat, then updating to a programmable or even smart thermostat is sure to make a big impression on prospective buyers. Upgrading this component shows that you keep up with the latest home trends.

After that, it comes down to the age of your other components. Depending on the type of HVAC system you have, the main system components can be expected to last between 15 to 25 years. Of course, if any components are well under that age, then it’s not necessary to replace them. Just be sure that you confirm the age of these younger components so that prospective buyers are aware of what they’re getting.

Components that are close to 15 years old, however, may be worth replacing. This is especially true if you haven’t had a professional technician maintain your system through the years.

For your replacement project, begin with the oldest component and work your way down. If any components are showing obvious signs of wear and tear, those will need to be replaced regardless of their age. Then, once the components are replaced, make sure this is highlighted in your listing so that it can become a major selling point.

What is Preventative Maintenance?

Do You Need Preventative Maintenance?

At Clockwork Heating and Air Conditioning, we recommended that you have your furnace tuned up in the early fall and your air conditioner in the spring. During a tune-up, a technician will perform preventative maintenance on your equipment. Here’s what happens during preventative maintenance and how it helps your HVAC system:

Comprehensive Preventative Maintenance

There are many things the technician will do during their annual visit. First of all, they’ll check the settings on your thermostat and review them with you. The goal is to make sure it is being used as optimally as possible.

The technician will check all electrical connections to make sure nothing is loose or frayed. They will lubricate moving parts, such as the blower motor. They will also check the air filter and replace it if needed.

On your air conditioner, preventative maintenance includes checking and cleaning the condensate drain line. The technician will make sure that the condensate pump is operating correctly. If necessary, the condenser coil will be cleaned. Additionally, the evaporator will be inspected to make sure it has adequate airflow.

Preventative maintenance includes checking system controls and safety circuits to make sure they are operating correctly. A check of all the gas connections, gas valve operation, and gas pressure will be performed. The technician will also inspect the heat exchanger for cracks before cleaning it. Finally, they will make sure the burners are operating at peak efficiency.

Clockwork Heating and Air Conditioning in Athens, GA, we offer comprehensive preventative maintenance for your heating and cooling equipment. All of our technicians are NATE certified and can help you with all makes and models of heating and cooling systems.

Benefits of Preventative Maintenance

The first benefit of annual preventative maintenance is that it will save you money by reducing your energy bills. An HVAC system that is operating at peak efficiency can save you up to 30% on your utility bill.

Preventative maintenance also helps prevent repairs and costly breakdowns. It extends the life of your system and reduces the chances that you will soon have to spend a lot of money on having your heating or cooling unit replaced.

Furthermore, many manufacturers require preventative maintenance for the warranty to be valid. You must present proof of annual maintenance if you submit a claim under warranty.

Ultimately, preventative maintenance increases the comfort of your home. Systems that receive annual maintenance will distribute conditioned air better throughout your interior spaces. It reduces the chances of coming home on a cold winter day to find cold air coming out of your vents. Maintenance also reduces the chances of your HVAC system making strange noises or smells.

Keeping You Safe

Maintenance helps to make your home safer. It sometimes happens that a homeowner goes on vacation only to return to a broken furnace and a frozen home. This can result in frozen and burst pipes, water damage, and more. Repairing this damage is very expensive.

Preventative maintenance helps keep carbon monoxide out of your home. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas. At low levels, it can cause headaches and nausea. At high levels, it can cause severe health problems and even lead to death. A maintenance professional will make sure a gas furnace is properly venting gasses outdoors.

Your technician will also make sure that the heat exchanger in your gas furnace isn’t broken or failing. A damaged heat exchanger will cause carbon monoxide to enter the air around your furnace and possibly your living space. If the technician doesn’t see carbon monoxide detectors in your home, they will recommend that you buy and install them on each level of your property.

A maintained HVAC system is better for the environment. It doesn’t consume as much fuel, which reduces your home’s carbon footprint. A technician can also investigate what type of refrigerant is being used in your air conditioner. The EPA is phasing out some types of refrigerants due to their negative impact on the environment.

When talking to you about your thermostat, the technician may bring up getting a programmable or smart thermostat. These can greatly improve your home’s efficiency.

How Does a Furnace Work

Wondering How a Furnace Works?

Living in the southeastern United States, we really depend on furnaces to keep warm. Even though our winters are mild, a furnace that does not work can be a huge stressor. Understanding how your furnace works will help you identify any potential malfunctions. While some things are easy to fix, others require an experienced professional to solve. Either way, it’s helpful to know a bit of background.

Basic Furnace Function

The furnace cycle is actually quite simple in its design and execution. Here are the steps of the cycle.

Step 1: Generate heat. This is usually done by burning propane or natural gas in the combustion chamber.

Step 2: Transfer that heat to the air. The generated heat warms an exchanger, which is a vented metal plate through which air flows. A circulating fan draws the air and forces it through the heat exchanger, warming it up.

Step 3: Distribute heated air. As the heated air passes through the heat exchanger, it is then sent into the duct system, and distributed throughout the house.

Step 4: Draw colder air back and start again. While the heated air is being circulated throughout the house, the colder denser air is being drawn down and back to the return duct. This return flows back to the furnace to allow the cycle to continue.

While this is a very simple process, maintaining it can become quite complex depending on the particular furnace.

Primary Furnace Components

It is really the components of the furnace that make it complex. Knowing at least the primary components can help you when talking with a qualified repair profession. Here are the primary parts most furnace systems have.

  • Thermostat
  • Combustion chamber
  • Burner
  • Pilot light
  • Gas valve
  • Circulating fan
  • Exhaust fan
  • Heat exchanger
  • Furnace filters

While anyone can replace furnace filters and thermostat batteries, you need a qualified professional to help when it comes to working on the internal parts of the furnace. The team at Clockwork Heating and Air Conditioning has been serving the Athens, GA, area for over 35 years. Whether you need help with your furnace, air conditioner, or indoor air quality, we have the expertise to help. Give us a call today.

How To Change a Furnace Filter

Wondering How to Change Your Furnace Filter?

Changing a furnace air filter is one of the most important maintenance tasks a homeowner has to do. Luckily, it’s an easy job and should only take about 10 minutes to complete. However, not all furnace maintenance tasks are that simple; for everything else, call up the furnace technicians at Clockwork Heating & Air Conditioning of Athens, and we’ll run through a full furnace tune-up checklist. Here are the five steps you should follow to change your furnace air filter:

1. Turn Off the Furnace

For your safety, you should always turn off the furnace before beginning any kind of maintenance work. Your furnace should have an on-off switch located on the wall next to the unit. Make sure the switch is in the “off” position until you’re done replacing the filter.

2. Locate the Furnace Filter

Once the furnace is safely off, locate the filter. Each furnace is designed differently, so not all filters are located in the same place. If you’re having trouble finding the filter, you can simply check the owner’s manual or look up the model number on the internet. Most filters are located in the ductwork above the furnace or behind the furnace cover in the blower compartment.

3. Take Out the Old Filter

Remove the old air filter by gripping the cardboard frame and gently pulling it out. Most furnace filters are disposable, so you can toss it right into the trash. However, some filters are reusable, and you simply need to wash it off before replacing it.

4. Insert the New Air Filter

Time for the new filter! Filters are designed with a right-side-up designed by an arrow. Make sure the arrow is aligned correctly, then slide the new filter into the slot.

5. Turn the furnace back on

Last step! Once the new filter is securely inside the furnace, switch the furnace back into the “on” position.

Athens Furnace Experts

There you have it: five simple steps to change your furnace air filter! Here at Clockwork Heating & Air Conditioning in Athens, GA, our expert furnace technicians are here to take care of all of your home’s heating and cooling needs. We specialize in maintenance, repair and replacement for your home’s furnace and AC. Call us today to learn more.

3 Ways an Air Purifier Can Benefit Your Health

Air Purifiers and Their Health Benefits

We spend most of our time indoors. Therefore, the air we breathe while at home or at work directly impacts our quality of life and overall health. Your knowledgeable HVAC technicians at Clockwork Heating and Air Conditioning can help you to implement effective, affordable solutions to improve your indoor air quality at your house or place of business. Since 1985, we’ve served the Athens, GA, area with customer-focused, courteous service. The following are three ways an air purifier can improve your health.

1. Air Purifiers Trap Allergens

Whether you’re allergic to dust, pollen, or pet dander, air purifiers can make life easier for you by eliminating the particles that trigger your symptoms. Air purifiers utilize a filtration system to trap air contaminants that typically trigger people who suffer from allergies as well as those who have asthma or other respiratory conditions. Installing a whole home air filter will allow your household to breathe easier and experience more restful, rejuvenating sleep while at home.

2. Air Purifiers Keep You Healthier

Adding an air filter to your HVAC system will also reduce pathogens that cause illness. Even if you don’t have allergies or a respiratory ailment, you need to protect yourself against germs during cold and flu season. In addition to blocking dust, air filters trap and remove bacteria, fungus spores, and viruses that would otherwise circulate throughout the air indoors.

3. Air Purifiers Remove Volatile Organic Compounds

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are potentially harmful gases emitted from many common household products. Although VOCs take the form of gases, they can be emitted from solids and liquids. Paints, building materials, glues, and cleaning products are common sources of VOCs. These unhealthy gases are also emitted from the burning of fuel sources like wood and gas.

To learn more about how an HVAC air filter may improve your indoor air quality, call your local talented technicians at Clockwork Heating & Air Conditioning. In addition to air filters, we install, maintain, and repair all heating and air conditioning equipment.

Why You Should Invest in a Smart Thermostat

Installing a Smart Thermostat is a Smart Investment

First, don’t think about “buying” a smart thermostat. Instead, you should look at things from an investment perspective. Smart thermostats come with many benefits that old models lack. Once you upgrade to a modern thermostat, you can reap some significant rewards. Hot summers and cold winters make keeping the right temperature a little tricky. Therefore, upgrading to a smart thermostat may be a good solution for you.

Old Systems Aren’t Efficient

A traditional thermostat might get the basic job done by simply raising and lowering temperatures. However, efficiency for traditional thermostats may become questionable. A smart thermostat can help you set desirable temperatures at specific days and times of the week. Doing so improves efficiency, which can take some performance burdens off a furnace’s back. Remember, when a furnace works too hard all the time, it could suffer and create problems. Clockwork Heating & Air Conditioning can help residents of Athens with furnace repairs or upgrades.

Lower Your Monthly Bills

Improved efficiency and a better handle on the interior temperature can lower your monthly heating bills. If you can set the temperature to drop down when you aren’t home, your monthly bills will reflect the decreased usage. Why pay to maintain a temperature that isn’t necessary when no one’s home? One reason is that it takes a while to heat the house after walking through the front doors and turning on the thermostat. A smart thermostat could set the temperature to increase an hour before your arrival, making it possible to walk into a warm home without paying too much to do so.

Smart Thermostats Work Remotely

Not only do smart thermostats come with a remote control, but you can also sync them to a smartphone app. Make adjustments from literally anywhere by tapping on the app. The ability to stay on top of and change temperature settings also helps with keeping costs down.

Clockwork Heating & Air Conditioning began as a startup financed by $1,000 in capital way back in 1985. Today, its a thriving business offering heating, cooling, and indoor air quality services. Place a call today if your thermostat or furnace needs repair or maintenance work.

Reasons To Use A Humidifier During Flu Season

It’s Flu Season -Use a Humidifier

The winter season is often thought of as the holiday season. In addition to holiday gatherings and shopping, winter is also generally known as flu season. Along with ensuring that your home remains warm when temperatures drop, your HVAC system may also be key to protecting you from colds, flu, and respiratory irritation. Our professional team at Clockwork Heating & Air Conditioning in Athens, GA, offers the following reasons to make a humidifier your ally in maintaining healthy indoor air quality during flu season.

Stop the Spread of Bacteria and Viruses

Studies suggest that illness-inducing bacteria and viruses are less mobile in humid air. The ideal humidity level to make it more difficult for germs to move through the air in your home is between 41percent and 50 percent.

A humidifier can help you maintain an optimal level of moisture indoors while also helping you breathe easier. If you do happen to come down with a cold or flu, moist air will be much more soothing to your airways and nasal passages.

A Humidifier Can Help You Sleep Better

Rest is imperative to avoiding colds and flu. Your body heals and repairs damaged cells and restores itself when you sleep. A humidifier will replenish the moisture that your HVAC system is likely to remove from the air in your home as it keeps you warm. When the air is at a more comfortable humidity level, you are more likely to experience quality sleep.

Proudly Serving Athens and Surrounding Areas

We have been serving households in Athens, GA, and surrounding areas for more than 30 years. In addition to making recommendations and installing humidifiers, we are also available to provide all HVAC services relating to:

  • Heating
  • Cooling
  • Indoor air quality
  • Routine maintenance

Allow us to help you transform your home into a refuge from the cold and flu germs in the outside world. Give us a call today to schedule your appointment with our knowledgeable heating and cooling specialists.

HVAC Tips for the Holidays

Holiday HVAC Tips

The holiday season, which coincides with the onset of winter, is almost upon us. It is a favorable time to celebrate and spend important moments with family. Since you will likely be spending a great deal of time indoors, it might be time to check in on your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system to make sure everything is working properly. Here are some notable HVAC tips to consider this holiday season.

Change the Air Filter

After a long summer and autumn, it is always good to consider changing the furnace filters for your air conditioning equipment. Replacing the dirty furnace filter with a brand new one helps improve the air quality in your house.

Program Your Thermostat

Your furnace thermostat should be fine-tuned and well-programmed to ensure that it creates the right temperature in your house. Since you are expecting to spend most of your time indoors, you should be vigilant about setting the correct temperature. You’ll want to make sure that the thermostat is set to a temperature that keeps everyone comfortable and healthy.

Check the Carbon Detectors

If your house does not have carbon monoxide detectors, this is a good time to consider installing one. Any existing detectors should also be verified to ensure that they still function well. These detectors are important in keeping you and your family at arm’s length from dangerous exposure to odorless and colorless carbon monoxide.

Dust Your Home

The holiday season also happens to be an ideal time to consider doing a thorough cleaning of your house. Doing a comprehensive dusting of every area in your house removes any dust that may have accumulated. It also helps improve the air quality in your house.

Consider an HVAC Inspection

Even after doing everything within your means to prepare your house for the holiday season, you should consider contacting experts to do a comprehensive check of your HVAC system. Our professionals at Clockwork Heating and Air Conditioning in Athens will do a thorough fine-tuning of your HVAC system to give you the best indoor experience this holiday season. In addition to our heating and cooling services, we offer indoor air quality services to keep your air clean. Call us today.
