Common Signs That
You Need AC Repair in
Pine Harbor, GA

Once springtime rolls around, it's very important that you keep your eyes and ears open for any potential warning signs that your A/C unit needs to be repaired.

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

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 Pine Harbor, GA

 Heating And Cooling Repair Pine Harbor, 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 Pine Harbor. 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 Pine Harbor, 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 Pine Harbor, 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 Pine Harbor, 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 Pine Harbor, 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.

Remote option demanded at Woodbridge, NJ school amid brain tumor fears

WOODBRIDGE — A number of families with children attending Colonia High School are calling for a remote learning option as investigations into a possible brain cancer cluster continue.

Twenty people from 16 families signed the letter sent to Mayor John McCormac and Woodbridge Superintendent Joseph Massimino. Dated April 30, it states that the signees are "concerned Colonia High School parents, alumni, and township members."

"Our children enjoy attending school and many prefer in-person learning to remote. We are not insisting that the school close down completely, but why isn’t remote learning an option?" the letter asked. "As it is, there are parents who have been keeping their children home because they do not want to take any chances."

It comes amid an investigation into a possible brain tumor cluster found by Colonia graduate Al Lupiano.

New Jersey 101.5 first reported that Lupiano had found dozens of rare brain tumors among graduates and former staff at the school. That number has grown to over 115 people, according to Lupiano, a former EPA emergency responder who has decades of experience in environmental cleanup.

With the number of possibly connected brain tumors still growing, concern among the Woodbridge community is growing as well. And the township is unable to take further action until the results of radon and radiation testing, as first reported by New Jersey 101.5, come back, Mayor McCormac told New Jersey 101.5 Tuesday.

The letter further expressed concerns that these tests are not enough. It also calls for a community and school board meeting dedicated to the issue, along with the demand for remote learning.

"Make remote an option. You have the power to do this," the letter stated.

But Massimino wrote back that he does not have that power. The superintendent told New Jersey 101.5 that he responded to the families in a letter Tuesday.

In his response, Massimino wrote that the state created a remote learning option amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Then last year, Gov. Phil Murphy mandated all public schools to return to in-person classes.

"I have made several inquiries with the New Jersey Department of Education, in an effort to determine whether there could be any exception to this rule, but was informed that remote instruction is only available in the event of an active health crisis or emergency," Massimino said.

"At this time, the Woodbridge Township Board of Health has informed me that there is no substantiated public health concern related to Colonia High School."

While many Woodbridge residents have expressed concerns about the possible brain tumor cluster, there is still no solid evidence backing it. That will depend on testing results and further investigation.

The results of the radon and radiation testing are expected later this month.

Environmental regulators call for change in treatment of endangered Georgia woodpecker

A federally endangered woodpecker species found in Georgia could soon see fewer environmental protections — but regulators say the change is needed in order to help preserve its preferred habitat.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced Wednesday a new proposal on how to treat the red-cockaded woodpecker, a species endemic to the southeastern U.S. which gets its name from the males' red stripes that resemble “cockades” — ribbons popular on men's hats during the 18th and 19th centuries.

The agency is requesting to downgrade the woodpecker's protection status from “endangered” to “threatened.” Doing so, according to the FWS, would make it easier for land managers to carry out prescribed burns of open pine forests, which would help maintain the woodpecker's preferred habitat of fire-resistant longleaf pine.

“With ‘threatened’ species, we can maintain prohibitions on actions that adversely impact the species, while reducing the prohibitions on actions that provide a conservation benefit to the species,” said Aaron Valenta, a manager in the agency's Division of Restoration and Recovery, in a statement. “We need more prescribed fire to manage these large tracts of land for the species.”

Under the proposed change, the woodpecker would continue to receive protections that it currently enjoys, but with some notable exceptions: among them is a provision that would allow the military to conduct training activities that might incidentally threaten the species, and another one that would free up farmers to use potentially harmful herbicides.

Conservation groups have said that a past effort to downgrade the species to “threatened” could jeopardize well-established efforts to keep it from going extinct.

The FWS is accepting public comment on the proposed change through March 7.

Covington native serves aboard USS Pearl Harbor

MILLINGTON, Tenn. — A Covington native is serving aboard USS Pearl Harbor, a Navy dock landing ship, currently deployed in support of naval operations to ensure maritime stability and security in the Mediterranean and western Indian Ocean.

Chief Petty Officer Billy Fuson is a Navy hospital corpsman responsible for performing duties as an assistant in the prevention and treatment of disease and injury and assist health care professionals in providing medical care to Navy personnel and their families.

“I enjoy knowing that at the end of the day, I have made an impact on someone’s life,” said Fuson.

Fuson joined the military to continue the family tradition.

“My grandfather, father and mother all previously served in the Army, and I joined the Navy to sail the seas and visit far away shores,” said Fuson.

According to Fuson, the values required to succeed in the military are similar to those found in Covington.

“My grandfather always taught me that hard work and dedication pays off,” said Fuson. “No matter what, I try and give 100% to every task I partake in.”

Homeported in San Diego, California, USS Pearl Harbor is a Harpers Ferry-class dock landing ship (LSD) named after the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.

According to Navy officials, LSDs support amphibious operations including landings via Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC), conventional landing craft and helicopters, onto hostile shores by transporting and launching amphibious craft and vehicles with their crews and embarked personnel in amphibious assault operations.

Serving in the Navy means Fuson is part of a team that is taking on new importance in America’s focus on rebuilding military readiness, strengthening alliances and reforming business practices in support of the National Defense Strategy.

“The Navy contributes to national defense by keeping the sea lanes open allowing free flow of commerce,” said Fuson.

Though there are many opportunities for sailors to earn recognition in their command, community and careers, Fuson is most proud of being promoted in rank to chief petty officer.

As a member of the Navy, Fuson, as well as other sailors, know they are a part of a service tradition providing unforgettable experiences through leadership development, world affairs and humanitarian assistance. Their efforts will have a lasting effect around the globe and for generations of sailors who will follow.

“The Navy has given me the opportunity to give back to people in need; from providing medical care to Iraq and Afghani nations while providing the opportunity to meet and learn about new cultures,” added Fuson.

Randy Frost has devoted many years to helping youth overcome challenges life handed them.

Frost has decades of experience working in the mental health field, and for the past 10 years has led the nonprofit SeaSide Enrichment Programs, which he founded to serve children in Southeast Georgia.

He recently relaunched this work in Glynn County with a new mentoring program that serves youth ages 12-17 and that will teach values like responsibility, work ethic and respect.

“My passion has been working with people who’ve been handed a bad hand because they need people to help them out,” Frost said.

His latest initiative is intended to create a mentorship experience for youth in the community while giving them a chance to earn some job experience as well.

“We will accept odd jobs,” he said. “We’re not a professional landscaping company. Basically I’m a home owner that knows how to cut grass.”

His program can handle a much wider variety of tasks, though, including most kinds of scheduled contracted jobs like trimming, spreading pine straw, washing cars and picking up trash.

“We are looking for odd jobs for people who don’t want to do things or can’t do them — the elderly, anybody,” Frost said.

Through word of mouth, Frost was able to set up several jobs soon after launching the program this fall. He’s also already received donations of equipment.

A recent month-long job on St. Simons involved clearing out debris in a large backyard. Frost and two students who reside on Morningstar’s campus spent full Saturdays on site, pulling up Palmetto roots and hauling away limbs and other debris.

“When we do these jobs, we don’t leave until completion and the customer is happy,” Frost said. “… And then when we are finished, the client will pay us what they feel our effort was worth.”

Each participant will be paid minimum wage, and the remaining funds will go toward the nonprofit, Frost said.

“Part of the mentoring is you’re going to work as hard as I do,” Frost said. “It’s about work ethic, it’s about attitude, dependability, responsibility — all the kind of things that a lot of our youth aren’t being taught these days.”

While he’s working side by side with the students, Frost will call on his decades of career experience and he will mentor the students while they’re completing the jobs.

“I used to have a counseling office,” he said. “Well, today, we are kind of counseling and mentoring all while we pull weeds.”

Youth are referred to his program through Morningstar, Safe Harbor and other local organizations. He meets them and lays out what the program will entail before they sign up.

“It’s a true mentoring work program where I’m going to teach you how to work and be dependable and get ready for the real world,” Frost said. “… All the kids that I have had (were) all handed a bad hand, and I like to show them that there’s still good people out in the world.”

His nonprofit has also in past years hosted SeaSide Enrichment Camps during the summer. The programs are intended to serve youth who’ve faced tough circumstances early in life and give them a chance to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities.

Frost plans to bring the SeaSide Enrichment Camp experience back this summer.

Anyone with questions about how to support these programs can contact Frost by calling 912-230-0204 or emailing seaside172000@yahoo.com.
