Darien, GA

That way, you can take preventative steps rather than reactive ones.

 Heater Repair Services Darien, GA
Loud-Unusual-Noises
Loud, Unusual Noises

Don't be alarmed if your A/C unit makes low-level noises throughout the day and night - these sounds are completely normal. However, if you hear loud, unusually abrupt noises coming from your unit, it may be time to have it repaired. Buzzing or rattling noises can mean a part is loose, while grinding or whistling can signal a more serious problem. Because these types of issues won't work themselves out on their own, a professional is needed to diagnose and correct the problem.

Strong-Odors
Strong Odors

If you notice strange, smelly odors permeating throughout your home, your first instinct may be to grab the air freshener. However, unpleasant odors can be a sign that your A/C unit needs attention. Our A/C repair techs will let you know what's going on and how a potential issue can be remediated with a quick diagnostic test.

Refrigerant or Water Leaks
Refrigerant or Water Leaks

Your A/C unit needs refrigerant to keep your home cool and comfortable when it's hot outside. It's common for condensation to accumulate as your system cools your home. With that said, if you notice pooling water or an active leak coming from your A/C system, it's time to call an A/C repair tech ASAP. Leaks can cause extensive damage to your home, and the problem needs to be addressed quickly.

Common Signs That You Need Furnace Repair in Darien, GA

 Heating And Cooling Repair Darien, GA

Today's heating systems are complex. At Liberty Heating & Airworx AC, our heating repair technicians receive ongoing training in all aspects of heating technology. That way, their skills stay sharp, and their techniques remain up to date. However, you don't need to be an expert to spot common signs that your heater may need to be repaired.

As colder months approach in Georgia, try to be aware of the following red flags:

Expensive Heating Bill

You're probably used to a more expensive electricity bill when winter hits Darien. However, if you notice a huge price jump over last year's bill, it could be a sign that something is wrong with your heating system. Utility companies are known for raising prices gradually, but a dramatic leap is a cause for concern.

Uneven Heating
Uneven-Heating

Does your heater seem to work perfectly in some areas of your house but not others? Are some rooms too hot while others are drafty and cold? If so, your heater may need repairing. This is a common issue in older homes and requires an expert to inspect your heater and ducts for airflow problems.

Unhealthy Air Quality
Unhealthy Air Quality

If the air in your house is hazy no matter how much you dust, your heater may be the problem. A furnace that circulates mildew, dust, and other harmful particles isn't working correctly. This issue is particularly bad for people with asthma or respiratory illnesses. If you haven't changed your home's air filter recently, be sure to do so. If the problem persists, it's time to call Liberty Heating & Airworx AC.

New AC Installation
in Darien, GA

You and your family depend on your home's A/C system to keep you cool and comfortable during the hottest months of the year. Unfortunately, breakdowns happen at the worst possible times - like in the middle of July when temperatures are over 90 degrees. If you have had to repair your A/C system more and more often, investing in a new cooling system will save you time and money in the long run.

As an Authorized Carrier and Goodman dealer - two of the most recognized and respected brands in our industry - we have the highest quality units available. We handle every aspect of your new A/C installation from start to finish. That way, you can focus on living your life rather than worrying about the next time your A/C goes out.

Curious when it might be time for a new A/C system?

Keep an eye out for these warning signs:

Dusty Furniture

 HVAC Darien, GA

If you have kept your unit well-maintained and changed your air filter regularly, you shouldn't experience this problem. If you do, and your system is old, it can be more cost-effective to replace it and have your duct system analyzed to fix the root cause of your dust issue.

High Humidity

 HVAC Repair Services Darien, GA

If it feels unusually sticky in your home, like you just spent a few hours outside in the summertime, there's a good chance that something is seriously wrong with your air conditioning. Your air conditioner's job is to pull moisture out of the air to keep your feeling cool inside. When that process fails, it can increase your risk of mold and mildew growth - and that's just the start.

Frequent Repairs

 HVAC Services Darien, GA

When your repair bills end up costing more than a down payment on a new A/C system, it might make more financial sense to invest in a more modern unit. Compare how much it costs to have our maintenance technicians perform regular service vs. the cost of a new air conditioning installation. The results may surprise you.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities and residents in Florida were keeping a cautious eye on Tropical Storm Ian as it rumbled ominously through the Caribbean on Sunday, likely to become a major hurricane on its path toward the state.

Gov. Ron DeSantis has declared a state of emergency throughout Florida and urged residents to prepare for the storm to lash large swaths of the state with heavy rains, high winds and rising seas.

Forecasters are still unsure of exactly where Ian could make landfall, with current models plotting it toward Florida's west coast or panhandle regions, he said.

“We're going to keep monitoring the track of this storm. But it really is important to stress the degree of uncertainty that still exists,” DeSantis said at a news conference Sunday, cautioning that “even if you're not necessarily right in the eye of the path of the storm, there's going to be pretty broad impacts throughout the state.”

The National Hurricane Center said Ian is expected to become a hurricane on Monday and reach major hurricane strength Tuesday. Flash and urban flooding is possible in the Florida Keys and Florida peninsula through midweek, and then heavy rainfall was possible for north Florida, the Florida panhandle and the southeast United States later this week.

The agency placed a tropical storm watch over the lower Florida Keys on Sunday evening and has advised Floridians to have hurricane plans in place and monitor updates of the storm’s evolving path.

A hurricane warning was in effect Sunday for Grand Cayman and the Cuban provinces of Isla de Juventud, Pinar del Rio and Artemisa.

Cuban state media said emergency authorities have met to plan for the storm’s arrival and prepare for evacuations, though none had been ordered as of Sunday. The track forecast by the National Hurricane Center shows a major storm striking the far-western part of the island early Tuesday, close to the country’s most famed tobacco fields.

President Joe Biden also declared an emergency, authorizing the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, or FEMA, to coordinate disaster relief and provide assistance to protect lives and property. The president postponed a scheduled Sept. 27 trip to Florida because of the storm.

John Cangialosi, a senior hurricane specialist at the Miami-based center, said in an interview Sunday that it is not clear exactly where Ian will hit hardest in Florida. Residents should begin preparations, including gathering supplies for potential power outages, he said.

“It's a hard thing to say stay tuned, but that's the right message right now,” Cangialosi said “But for those in Florida, it's still time to prepare. I'm not telling you to put up your shutters yet or do anything like that, but it's still time to get your supplies.”

Local media in Florida have reported a consumer rush on water, generators and other supplies in some areas where residents moved to stock up on goods ahead of the storm.

Kevin Guthrie, director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management, said the state has begun loading trailers with more than 2 million meals and more than 1 million gallons of water to be ready to be sent into impacted areas. He said the state has had frequent communication with local governments and is processing requests for resources.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp on Sunday moved to activate the State Operations Center to respond to any potential storm damage. He told residents to monitor the weather and calmly take precautions if necessary.

At the Kennedy Space Center, NASA kept close watch on Ian’s projected path while debating whether to move its new moon rocket off the launch pad and into shelter. Managers already have bumped the test flight from this week to next because of the storm.

Elsewhere, powerful post-tropical cyclone Fiona crashed ashore Saturday in Nova Scotia in the Atlantic Canada region, washing houses into the sea, tearing off rooftops and knocking out power to more than 500,000 customers in two provinces.

Associated Press writer Julie Walker contributed to this report from New York.

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia's secretary of state on Friday announced plans to replace election equipment in one county following “unauthorized access” to the equipment that happened two months after the 2020 election.

A computer forensics team hired by allies of then-President Donald Trump traveled to Coffee County, about 200 miles (320 kilometers) southeast of Atlanta, on Jan. 7, 2021. A company representative has said they made complete copies of the election management system server and other election system components. Later that month, two men who have been involved in efforts to discredit the 2020 election results also spent hours inside the elections office with access to the equipment.

Trump and his supporters pushed false claims about certain voting machines after he lost his bid for reelection. Authorities have said there was no evidence of widespread problems with voting equipment.

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger said an investigation into the unauthorized access to the equipment by former Coffee County election officials continues.

“Anyone who broke the law should be punished to its full extent," Raffensperger said in a news release. “But the current election officials in Coffee County have to move forward with the 2022 election, and they should be able to do so without this distraction.”

Footage from security cameras shows “former election officials in Coffee County permitting access by unauthorized individuals to equipment that under Georgia law should have been secured,” the release said. The footage was produced in response to subpoenas issued by plaintiffs in a long-running lawsuit against state election officials that claims the state's touchscreen voting machines aren't secure.

The county's election management server and central scanner workstation were previously replaced in June 2021, officials have said. The county will receive 100 new touchscreen voting machines, 100 printers, 10 precinct scanners, 21 tablets used to check in voters and new flash cards and thumb drives to be installed and tested before early voting begins next month.

Marilyn Marks, executive director of the Coalition for Good Governance, a plaintiff in the voting machine lawsuit, said the election management server and central scanner workstation should also be replaced. She said that's because they were used with the other potentially contaminated equipment in elections since their replacement last year.

Separately, election officials in the state's most populous county, in and around Atlanta, said Friday that they had fired a worker after learning that “personally identifiable information was shared with an individual outside the organization," news outlets reported.

“The individual responsible for the incident no longer works with Fulton County,” the county said in a news release. “Fulton County is committed to the safety and security of all citizens and employees. Each individual affected by this incident will be notified and will receive credit monitoring services.”

UGAMI works with local ISP to upgrade Sapelo Island broadband

The UGA Marine Institute (UGAMI) is a world-renowned field destination that supports research and education in coastal ecosystems. Its remote location on Sapelo Island has sometimes proven a challenge, though, especially where internet broadband is concerned.

Sapelo Island is connected to the internet by a single tower that exchanges data with the mainland approximately 9 miles away. Until recently, the radios on this tower were equipped to handle only 300 megabits per second (Mbps) worth of data, and only 100 of these were dedicated to UGAMI—not nearly enough to handle the scope of research completed there. This resulted in bottlenecks and frequent service interruptions.

That all changed in August with the installation of modern broadband technology that increased the island’s total bandwidth capacity to 2,400 Mbps, an eightfold improvement. This not only transformed internet connectivity on the island, but also dramatically improved UGAMI’s ability to conduct its important work without interruption.

“With the old system, the UGAMI network was often saturated, which affected everything from the business office to data-intensive research to teaching and videoconferencing,” said Merryl Alber, director of UGAMI and professor in the UGA department of marine sciences. “The boost has now alleviated that and provides us with room for growth.”

This was echoed by Jacob Shalack, UGAMI’s assistant director for operations. “Uploading research files was a nightmare,” he said, “and being able to use the new capacity makes it much more efficient.”

Shalack has worked on Sapelo Island for 15 years. One of the biggest changes, he said, will involve the drone imagery that researchers on the island use to document environmental patterns. Such in-depth imagery often results in huge files, which previously could take two hours or more to upload, but the new technology has cut this down to an average of 12 minutes.

The upgrade is also a promising development for Sapelo Island’s private community, which shares its broadband connection with the staff at UGAMI.

“Before the upgrade, the bandwidth that was available to all of Sapelo Island was equivalent to that of two or three average residential broadband accounts,” said Alber. “This was a limitation for residents, businesses and governmental agencies on the island.”

The existing microwave radios were installed in 2012, as part of a partnership between UGAMI and the Darien Telephone Company, the network provider for Sapelo Island. The two entities collaborated again to bring newer technology to the island.

“The Darien Telephone Company appreciated the opportunity to collaborate with UGAMI to make the necessary updates to the microwave that provides broadband from the mainland to Sapelo Island,” said Judy Dodd, marketing manager for Darien Telephone Company. “This upgrade will provide increased bandwidth to meet the growing demand for broadband on the island.”

Both UGA and Darien Telephone Company contributed to the new system, with the UGA portion of the funds provided by the Office of Research. Dodd also acknowledged the effort that Alber put in to make this happen.

“[She] was instrumental in securing funding and was the driving force for the project,” said Dodd.

SEC full of tight-end talent, led by Bell, Bowers, Trigg

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — It’s difficult to truly gauge the Southeastern Conference’s tight-end talent through two weeks of the season.

There’s little chance the same will be said after two months.

The powerhouse league has arguably its deepest and most skilled tight-end group in years. The collection includes big-time playmakers and is sure to produce NFL first-round draft picks such as Kyle Pitts (Florida), Hayden Hurst (South Carolina), Evan Engram (Ole Miss) and O.J. Howard (Alabama).

South Carolina’s Jaheim Bell, Georgia’s Brock Bowers and Mississippi’s Michael Trigg top the list. They’re big. They’re fast. They’re versatile. And they’re hardly alone.

Here’s a look at the best of the SEC’s current crop, five of whom will share a field when South Carolina (1-1) hosts top-ranked and defending national champion Georgia (2-0) on Saturday:

BELL, SOUTH CAROLINA

Bell might be the most multifaceted tight end in the SEC, possibly in the country. The 6-foot-3, 230-pound junior from Lake City, Florida, lines up all over the field. He has four catches for 18 yards to go with 11 carries for 44 more. He also owns the top two receiving games by a tight end in school history: 136 yards against Vanderbilt and 159 against North Carolina.

“He’s a freak athlete,” teammate and fellow tight end Austin Stogner said. “You can really put him anywhere.”

BOWERS, GEORGIA

Anyone who watched the eventual champs play last season should remember Bowers. The 6-4, 230-pound native of Napa, California, burst onto the scene as a freshman, finishing with 56 receptions for 882 yards and 13 touchdowns. He has five catches for 95 yards this year, getting plenty of time off during Georgia’s back-to-back blowouts.

ARIK GILBERT, GEORGIA

Arik Gilbert appears to be the odd man out in Georgia’s ultra-deep position group. The former LSU starter and the No. 1 tight end prospect in the 2020 recruiting class doesn’t have a reception while playing behind Bowers and Darnell Washington. He caught 35 passes for 368 yards and two TDs as a freshman with the Tigers before entering the transfer portal.

He was briefly committed to Florida but ended up in Athens, about 80 miles from his home in Marietta, Georgia. Coach Kirby Smart said Gilbert’s lack of playing time has more to do with his practice habits than the depth chart.

“It’s really based on Arik’s performance,” Smart said. “It’s not really based on those guys ... That’s all based on how he practices and how he carries over to game day.”

STOGNER, SOUTH CAROLINA

The Oklahoma transfer landed at South Carolina along with quarterback Spencer Rattler. They already have chemistry, although Stogner has just six catches for 75 yards through two games. The 6-6, 251-pound senior from Plano, Texas, had 47 receptions for 654 yards and eight scores with the Sooners. And he enjoys blocking as much as anything else he does.

“It’s amazing; it’s an extra O-lineman on the field,” Gamecocks running back Marshawn Lloyd said.

MASON TAYLOR, LSU

First-year LSU coach Brian Kelly called the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Jason Taylor “the No. 1 surprise of camp.” Mason Taylor has five catches for 47 yards, including a 17-yarder that set up a late touchdown against Florida State.

“He’s been outstanding,” Kelly said, adding that Taylor has added 20 pounds. “I’ve been blessed. I’ve had some great tight ends. I’ve got seven of them right now who are active in the NFL. And Mason Taylor is as good as any freshman tight end that I’ve had.”

TRIGG, OLE MISS

The Southern Cal transfer had three TD receptions in last week’s 59-3 romp over Central Arkansas, all from inside the 10-yard line. The 6-3, 240-pound sophomore from Tampa, Florida, has nine receptions for 61 yards. He caught seven balls for 109 yards and a score in six games with the Trojans in 2021. He landed in Oxford as part of the package deal with quarterback Jaxson Dart.

Rebels coach Lane Kiffin likes what he’s seen from Trigg but wants more.

“There’s some inconsistency there because he’s a young player,” Kiffin said. “He needs to play more consistent because you can see the big-play potential.”

WASHINGTON, GEORGIA

No one his size is supposed to move like that. But Washington has rare traits. The 6-7, 260-pound junior is a blocking beast as well as a threat to run by linebackers and post up –- or leap over — defensive backs. He has four catches for 66 yards, well on his way to surpass his two-year totals of 17 receptions for 320 yards and a score.

He already created a career highlight when he hurdled Oregon cornerback Bryan Addison in the team’s opener.

“Darnell Washington is in the best shape he’s been in,” Smart said recently, adding the big man can play “harder for longer.”

The SEC appears poised for talent at the position for years to come, too.

Texas A&M signed three of the top six tight-end prospects in its ballyhooed 2022 class: Jake Johnson, Donovan Green and Theo Melin Öhrström. Georgia landed the No. 2 guy on the list, Oscar Delp.

Tennessee and Georgia have commitments from the second- and third-rated tight-end recruits for 2023. The Vols ave a pledge from Ethan Davis of Suwanee, while the Dawgs are in line to land Pearce Spurlin of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.

[VITALS]

[THEY'RE HERE]

[REASON TO CHEER]

An already ridiculous collection of talent has been bolstered by a ridiculous class of underclassman recruits and PGs.

[REASON TO FEAR]

There's only one ball.

[THE BOTTOM LINE]

After spending last year as the coach-in-waiting for Kevin Driscoll, who'd come out of retirement for a season, Southington native Jonathan Wholley, a former college coach at UConn, Mississippi State and Fordham, is now in the pilot's seat.

It's a comfortable one, since the Winged Beavers are shaping up to be one of the best teams in New England. Despite losing some top players from last year's Founders League co-champion and Bowl champion, Wholley already had a good core which which to work. All told Avon Old Farms has at least 10 future college players, nine at the Division I level.

Receiver Jackson Harper is headed for UConn. Big center Ethan Shames is committed to Williams. Senior end Kevin Nizolek is a Fordham commit out of Madison. Linebacker Christian LeBrun is commited to UMass. But wait, there are more college prospects: Massive offensive guard Will Prince, WR/DB Ben Johnston, who'll play at Duke for lacrosse, and end Eric Lindstrom, whose whole family played at Boston College (he's still TBA). Safet KeShawn Adams, a junior, has a bunch of regional colleges after him, including UConn, Temple and Syracuse.

If that wasn't enough — and for most teams, it would be — Wholley's also restocked the pond with soon-to-be stars, beginning with junior Ryan Puglisi, who comes to Avon with an overflowing crate of FBS offers, including Alabama and Georgia. "He's a phenomenal athlete," Wholley said.

He's also added Connecticut all-staters Christian Alliegro from Darien and Maxwell Warren, from St. Joseph, as postgraduates. Alliegro, Wholley says, is a specimen amd might be the best players on the team. Minnesota and Rutgers have already offered.

In short, AOF is loaded. But just how good is it? They'll find out when equally-loaded Loomis Chaffee comes to town Oct. 1 for a rematch of last year's 35-26 thriller won by Loomis. That's followed by a rematch with Choate, another one of the Founders "Big Three."
