Expert Heating Repair


The winter season in Richmond Hill might only last about three months, but there is no doubt about the importance of a dependable heating unit. Residents need a heat pump or furnace to beat the mild chilly weather during the cold season. However, your heating unit might unexpectedly develop problems when you need it the most. Wearing the heaviest clothes to endure subzero temperatures might be a temporary solution, but it does not cut it in the long term. 

Our certified heating specialists at Galbreath Heating & Air can help restore your heating system to its best condition. We offer professional heating repair in Richmond Hill, GA, and the adjacent areas. Let our experts handle your emergency heating needs.

Common Heating Problems and Repairs

Heating systems have several delicate components that can succumb to malfunctions. The good news is that most heating problems are repairable. Our heating repair service focuses on diagnosing and fixing the issue promptly, restoring your heating system in preparation for winter. 

The following are common heating problems and repairs:

Malfunctioning Thermostat

Heating units typically have a thermostat that regulates how much heat your furnace or heat pump generates. However, the thermostat might fail for various reasons, triggering the need for local heating services in Richmond Hill, GA. If the thermostat fails, it will not pick up the correct indoor temperature, resulting in cold zones. Our experts at Galbreath Heating & Air can quickly fix the problem by repairing, reprogramming, or replacing the defective thermostat.

Clogged Air Filter

Modern heating systems have air filters that prevent pollutants and contaminants from infiltrating the heating unit. Over time, these filters might accumulate too much dirt, resulting in heating issues. Clogged filters limit airflow, forcing the heater to work harder to meet your heating needs. Heating repair for clogged air filters involves cleaning or replacing the filters.

Leaky Ducts

If your heating unit has a ductwork system, leaky ducts might be the reason for heating problems. A leaky ductwork system loses heat through the broken seals along the vents, creating cold spots in your space. Our heating repair experts can quickly diagnose the problem by inspecting your ductwork before performing the necessary repairs.

Damaged Limit Switch

Modern heat pumps and furnaces have a limit switch that controls the temperature inside your heating unit. This safety feature helps prevent potential fires. It also shuts down your heater if the temperature exceeds a certain level, protecting the internal components from damage from overheating. Limit switch malfunctions require expert heating repair services. Let a Galbreath Heating & Air repair or replace your damaged limit switch.

Power Issues

Your furnace or heat pump might fail to turn on or off because of a damaged switch or incorrect programming. In some cases, your heating system might power cycle repeatedly, leading to inconsistent heating. Our local heating services can help repair the damaged switch or program your furnace.

When Are Heating Repairs Necessary?

Sometimes, it can be challenging to know if your heating unit has a malfunction. In any case, some issues are too subtle to notice. However, most signs are obvious. Understanding these signs can help you know when to call us for heating repair in Richmond Hill, GA. 

Here are the most common signs that you need urgent heating services:

Pilot Warning Light

Most heating systems have a pilot light that indicates the current status of your heater. The pilot light might turn yellow if the system has a leak or goes off if it runs out of fuel or has power issues. We urge you to check the pilot light and call our heating repair experts to help you diagnose and fix the problem.

Noisy Furnace and Strange Smells

Modern heating units often operate silently unless there is a problem. A faulty heater might produce a banging or rattling sound when turned on. You may also notice a burning smell coming from the furnace. If your heat pump or furnace is too noisy and emits strange odors, consider calling our experts at Galbreath Heating & Air for professional heating services in Richmond Hill, GA.

High Energy Bills

Outrageously high power bills are another tell-tale sign that you require urgent heating repair services. Malfunctions can cause your heat pump or furnace to overwork and consume more energy to meet your heating needs. The increased energy consumption will result in increased utility bills.

Brandon is AWESOME!!! I have a new build home that’s almost 4 years old and experiencing HVAC issues. I originally had a different company come out that said I have a leaking coil and in total recommended close to $10K repairs to fix. Also they said the coil was on back order and never called me again. Awesome. Brandon came out for a second opinion and he was extremely polite, patient and courteous. He explained everything thoroughly and did not try to upsell us on unneeded items. His recommended fixes made sense and the infamous coil… their company called on the spot and found one that we could have in 1-3 business days and we walked away paying half the cost of the original quote. For anyone in the coastal Georgia area, Galbreath is a great option. We won’t go anywhere else from now on!

No hard sales pitch. Danny determined our system requirements and presented them professionally without a "sales pitch". The installation team was on time, organized and presented themselves as competent and professional. I would recommend Galbreath Air to anyone needing a HVAC system replacement. The follow up service has also been excellent. Zach was very thorough. Based on our experience, this is a company you can trust.

The technicians with Galbreath Heating and Air are very knowledgeable and patient. They answered all of my questions every step of the way. They do good quality work, in a timely manner, while paying close attention to detail. My new HVAC unit works so well and is much more efficient and powerful than my old unit. The installation took 1 day. I would recommend this company to anyone that needs a new HVAC installed or repair work done on an older unit.

Have dealt with several HVAC companies since moving to the Savannah area. First experience with Galbreath was excellent when called for a late summer night clogged drain line/pan in a lease home. After purchasing an older, rural home, we had to replace 2 heat pump systems, the first by another company (before Galbreath extended service into our area) and the second with Galbreath. Galbreath’s project manager (in our case Danny) shared his excellent product knowledge and provided 2 options allowing for an educated purchase for our specific needs. Technicians consistently arrive within time frame stated, listen to issues encountered, then work diligently to identify any issues, make repairs if necessary, and as in our case today, Brandon thoroughly inspected the 2 preexisting units and only needed to replace the faulty thermostats with the better functioning thermostat Galbreath installed with their heat pump system. All employees to date have been respectful of our property, and all certifications and filed warranties were provided promptly by courteous office staff. Previously having obtained pricing from 3 companies for various top rated brand heat pump installations, Galbreath’s pricing was competitive and their service consistently remains beyond comparison. We will not be calling any HVAC companies other than Galbreath in the future and wish all companies performed at their level of service and professionalism.

While I can't say that I am thrilled with the performance of the Lenox equipment having had two coils fail in less than 8 years of operation, the Galbreath team has been outstanding in supporting us from the initial purchase and installation, the annual service visits and the coil replacements. Unfortunately, it's hard to find conscientious workers who do quality work, but Galbreath seems to have succeeded in not only finding them, but keeping them. The technician who did our initial install over 8 years ago was the same one who did the most recent air handler replacement and he was excellent both times. Galbreath has my highest recommendation.

we were very happy with the service from Galbreth heating & air & especially Tyler ,Tim,Charlie,Austin & Ray . these men were on it from the time they arrived to install a new unit & cleaned up the mess before they left here . Tyler even walked us through the directions & how to install the unit on our phones & computer so we could control it while we were away from home. I would recommend them to everyone as we went with the best in this area . we are 100% satisfied

First of all, Danny Shapiro did a great job going over our options to replace our 2 systems. Once we decided, an appointment was set. The lead installer Charlie Clark and his crew of Austin, Ray and Tim were exceptional. They removed and replaced both systems with a minimum of disruption. The job was completed in 8 hours. They were respectful of our property and cleaned up thoroughly after the installation. My wife and I were very pleased with our choice of Galbreath for this project. Thanks to all for a job well done.Bill and Beth Jeffreys

The Galbreath team was very responsive when my heat pump needed servicing. Rebecca was very courteous and professional taking the inbound call and getting us scheduled for the next day. Zach came out and went through the system and found the issue to be the blower motor. He gave me a quote to repair and then got it scheduled and repaired the following day. Zach was very knowledgeable and helpful and explained exactly what was going on. He also showed me the value of the maintenance membership and we selected that option as well. With the age of my system, I can now count on 2 visits per year to keep it at top performance. In addition, with the S40 thermostat I have, Galbreath will probably know I have an issue even before I do!! Zach is a great technician and an asset to the company. On a side note, my wife really appreciates that Zach put on boot covers every time he can I to the house.I would highly recommend Galbreath for all your HVAC needs.
