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 Townsend, GA

 Heating And Cooling Repair Townsend, 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 Townsend. 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 Townsend, 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 Townsend, 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 Townsend, 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 Townsend, 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.

Tremont Institute receives $250K for second location in Townsend

TOWNSEND, Tenn. (WATE) — A $250,000 award has been granted to the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont to help them build a second campus.The award came from the Tennessee Valley Authority‘s Connected Communities Pilot Program.

TOWNSEND, Tenn. (WATE) — A $250,000 award has been granted to the Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont to help them build a second campus.

The award came from the Tennessee Valley Authority‘s Connected Communities Pilot Program. Tremont said the funds will be used to complete an engineering design to redesign a house into “a regenerative education center.” This center is the first phase of its second campus project.

“Tremont’s new education center is going to be unlike anything that we’ve seen in our region,” said John Thurman, principal with McCarty Holsaple McCarty. “The net-positive energy systems and place-based, equitable design is going to make this a place where anyone feels invited to connect with nature and imagine a bright and beautiful future.”

TVA’s Connected Communities Pilot Program offers funds for solutions that create long-term improvements in expanding access to “services through broadband and online platforms, promoting economic empowerment for the Valley workforce, and/or advancing energy and environmental justice in communities throughout the Valley.”

“Connecting sustainable buildings to the natural world is a novel approach for addressing the inequities in energy and environment,” said Georgia Caruthers, senior program manager of the TVA Connected Communities initiative. “TVA is proud to help contribute to an education center that includes technology-driven solutions and honored to support experiential learning that will positively impact the economy, workforce development and education.”

Tremont shared that the second campus will be built to meet the International Living Future Institute’s Living Building Challenge. This is a framework of rigorous building standards that includes clean energy goals, sustainable building practices and a positive impact on the surrounding community. The education center is hoping to become the first retrofitted Living Building Challenge building in the TVA region.

Following a competitive selection process, Knoxville-based McCarty Holsaple McCarty Architects was chosen by Tremont to be their partner firm for the first phase of the project. The firm will work closely with Hennebery Eddy, an architecture and planning firm with offices in Oregon and Montana. This firm has completed several projects that meet the Living Building Challenge standards, as well as several National Park Service projects.

“We’re so excited to kick off the first phase of our second campus,” said Catey McClary, president and CEO at Tremont. “This is a step toward a future we want to see for Tremont, for East Tennessee, and for our world.”

Tremont is an environmental education center located inside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The nonprofit offers immersive programs for children and adults to help them connect with others and nature.

The second campus will allow more programs to be offered as well as demonstrate sustainability and equity efforts.

Gregor Townsend targets a sharper Scotland when New Zealand come to town

Gregor Townsend admitted Scotland will need a significant improvement in performance levels if they are to shock ...

Gregor Townsend admitted Scotland will need a significant improvement in performance levels if they are to shock New Zealand next Sunday.

The Scots laboured to an unconvincing 28-12 win over Fiji on Saturday after trailing 12-7 towards the end of the first half.

Head coach Townsend knows his team will have to be far sharper at both ends of the pitch if they are to have any chance of pulling off a first ever victory over the All Blacks.

Asked what they will have to do better if they want to compete with New Zealand, he said: “We can’t give away as many penalties and we’ve got to convert when we have opportunities, which we didn’t do enough against Fiji.

“We won’t get as many opportunities to score tries next week, so we’ve got to make sure we take them.

“The All Blacks have brought a very strong team – we saw the depth they have with the performance of their second team against Ireland A on Friday.

“They know they’ll have a tough tour coming to the northern hemisphere with the travel and the different styles of rugby they’ll face up here.

“They’re still clearly one of the best teams in the world and we’ve never beaten them so it’s going to take our best performance to win next week.”

We can't be giving teams as many opportunities, we know that, and we'll be looking to rectify it

Scotland captain James Ritchie

Scotland gave away a flurry of penalties in the first half and had Stuart Hogg sin-binned, allowing Fiji to seize the upper hand for a sustained period before the break. Captain Jamie Ritchie acknowledged his team must “tidy up” their discipline.

“We can’t be giving teams as many opportunities, we know that, and we’ll be looking to rectify it,” he said.

“We were frustrated with our discipline in the first half. We knew they would be in the game early doors but we felt we were fitter than them and we knew that if they were in the game, we could get them in the last 20 minutes.

“I think you started to see towards the end of the first half that we had started to tire them out.

“We probably gave them too much territory but we found a way to win.”

Q&A: Debra Franklin Cannon of GSU’s hospitality school

Debra Franklin Cannon is director of the Cecil B. Day School of Hospitality in the Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University. The Savannah native was the 2022 recipient of the Georgia Restaurant Association’s annual lifetime achievement award. Cannon talked with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution recently about her career in hospitality.

What was your earliest experience in the restaurant business?

I sort of fell into it, as I think many people do. After college, I had an opportunity to manage and co-own a small restaurant in Savannah. I jumped into that with really no experience, but I learned a tremendous amount in a short period of time, including a lot about food costs and menu design. And, it certainly created an interest in the hospitality industry.

After that, was most of your work in the hotel business?

I joined Hyatt here in Atlanta, and went through a quick management training program. But, that was very educational and useful, because what I wanted to get into was human resources.

Where did you go from there?

The Hyatt Regency Savannah was opening, so I had a chance to go back home as the director of human resources there. It was a great experience.

How did you start teaching?

I was with Hyatt for about three and a half years, then I came over to the Ritz-Carlton brand. While I was at the downtown property, as the director of human resources, I started teaching part-time in the hospitality program at Georgia State.

Is it safe to say the Ritz upped the ante for dining in Atlanta at that time?

They brought in the who’s who of chefs and restaurant concepts. Gunter Seeger was a rock star, and still is. There was tremendous respect for his talent. And, the concept of the menu changing every day, depending on what he could buy fresh, was way before we started talking farm-to-table.

What about Ritz-Carlton co-founder Horst Schulze?

He had been a senior vice president of food and beverage with Hyatt, and he was one of those top leaders that moved to Ritz-Carlton. So, that was something to take notice of. Where Horst Schulze goes, there’s going to be greatness. He was the one who inspired that. It was that very sincere passion for quality in every aspect. I learned more than I could even describe.

What led you to become a full-time educator?

After the first semester at Georgia State, I realized I really loved it. Then, I decided ... that I would also start on my Ph.D. So, I was a part-time instructor for over five years, and working on my Ph.D. at night. There was an opening for the director of human resources at the Buckhead property, and I transferred out there. Then, a faculty position came open full time at Georgia State, and I thought, this is the way to have the best of both worlds.

Could you talk about your job as director of the School of Hospitality at Georgia State?

With the faculty and staff, we work together as a team to keep the coursework up to date and innovative, addressing the industry challenges. Our industry has changed a lot since COVID, and we’ve done a lot of revisions to the curriculum, in terms of the course content.

Any thoughts on the current restaurant industry?

I think it has been extraordinarily resilient, and has shown the strength of the industry, to come back as strong as it has since COVID. I see that as a huge statement for anyone thinking about it as a career. As you look around Atlanta, you see so many exciting startups. And, I think we’re very, very fortunate to have so many women and minorities coming to town with great concepts.

So, restaurants are a vital part of our culture?

We’ve seen that people do not want to stay at home and never go out to eat. We’re social animals. Eating out is where we celebrate, and where we interact, and where we have some of our happiest moments.

Watauga middle school cross county caps off stellar season at nationals

LOUISVILLE, KY — The Watauga middle school district-level cross country team sent 10 athletes to the 2022 Middle School XC Nationals, where the seven-member girls squad placed third among all schools and the three boys all recorded personal best times.

The meet took place on Saturday, Nov. 5, at Tom Sawyer State Park in Louisville, Kentucky. Eleven middle schools and 11 running clubs from around the United States traveled to attend the competition. Aside from the Watauga County athletes, other attendees came from Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida and Alaska.

Coaches Scott Townsend and Alex Keehn have coached the Watauga County middle cross country team for four and two years, respectively. Townsend revealed what makes Watauga County cross country so popular and successful.

“The High Country as a whole has a long-standing culture of long-distance running,” Townsend said. “The high school programs have set a standard of excellence under coach Randy McDonough for decades. In addition, the fantastic programming of Girls on The Run, coordinated through App States BCHS Institute for Health and Human Services under the care of Mary Sheryl Horine, has provided young girls the outlet to develop their self-confidence in running. Then five years ago, Michael Neff at Hardin Park Elementary School recognized the need to give students an opportunity to develop their competitive distance running ability, and made a case for a middle school cross country team. The program has grown every year since, hitting our largest team this year at 37 members. The community and culture draws kids to this team and sport. Our team mission statement is ‘Run, Fun then No. 1.’”

Continuing, Townsend said, “This year, the girls team had so much depth and could have won most meets with any of our top 20 girls. They ran with determination and grit! They rarely saw second place as a team, and when they did, were focused to regain their position of dominance in the next outing. The boys team this season was challenged with a lack of depth. We only had seven boys total, so they worked hard to overcome not always having a full scoring team at some meets. But their personal improvements were off the charts.”

Townsend talked about how the teams support never wavered, even when nationals qualifying times forced some to have to stay home in this last meet of the year.

“We challenge the athletes to avoid behaviors seen as jealousy and to support one another fully,” Townsend said. “This can be difficult sometimes with young athletes as they all want to be part of a travel team. It takes a delicate balance of not setting apart the nationals team during full team practices, yet at the same time, acknowledging them for their hard work. To illustrate this point, we had a runner who did not make the nationals team, but went out of her way to make travel treat bags for the trip. She delivered them at the final practice with encouraging notes to each of the national runners along with other select items. It was one of the most selfless acts of team investment I have seen in my four years with this crew.”

The harriers that attended Nationals were not only representing Watauga County, but their various middle schools as well. The 10 athletes that traveled to the 2022 Middle School XC Nationals in Louisville were:

The girls team finished 5th overall at Nationals, and 3rd among schools. The distance for the event was a 4 kilometer run, as opposed to the 3.2 kilometer distance more typical for middle school races.

Ireland head coach Andy Farrell hails his players' "resilience, guts and character" after hard-fought victory over South Africa; Wales' Wayne Pivac urges more physicality; Scotland's Gregor Townsend could recall Finn Russell; England take on Argentina at Twickenham (2.15pm) on Sunday

Andy Farrell hailed Ireland's resilience and character on Saturday, while Wayne Pivac urged Wales to be more physical, and Gregor Townsend admitted he could recall Finn Russell for Scotland...

Ireland secured a 19-16 win over the Springboks in Dublin, as world rugby's No 1 side beat the reigning World Cup winners, while Wales suffered a heavy 55-23 loss to New Zealand and Scotland recovered to beat Fiji 28-12.

Ireland were without the likes of centre Robbie Henshaw (hamstring) - who withdrew on Friday - lock Iain Henderson (knee), hooker Ronan Kelleher (hamstring) and back-three trio James Lowe (calf), Andrew Conway (knee) and Keith Earls (thigh) due to injury, and lost centre Stuart McCloskey (arm), scrum-half Conor Murray (groin) and tighthead Tadhg Furlong (ankle) during the fixture.

Added to that, full-back Hugo Keenan and replacement scrum-half Jamison Gibson-Park were playing their first matches since July due to injury, while the likes of openside Josh van der Flier and second-rows Tadhg Beirne and James Ryan have been out injured already this campaign.

His squad's ability to still register victory against a very strong South Africa side left Farrell filled with admiration and praise

"[We learnt] that we've got resilience, we've got guts, character," Farrell said.

"We wanted the test. We wanted the different type of Test match which was an old-fashioned slinging match, to see where we're at in that regard.

"And, wow, I thought the character of the side was immense. For all sorts of reasons.

"You start with coming into camp and a lot of them being under in terms of minutes are concerned.

"As well it being our first game of the season, it was some of the lad's very first game of the season, and some of them haven't played for weeks.

"But they come into camp, get to work, and certainly fill me with confidence every single time.

"You'd think that Hugo [Keenan] and Jamison [Gibson-Park] had been playing for the last five or six weeks.

"That's because the culture, the attitude, the want to get better in the side is infectious day in, day out.

"I thought we showed fantastic spirit. Having said that, South Africa are a hell of a side and it was a hell of a Test match. It could have gone either way.

"The character that we showed was fitting, and the injuries that we had.

"In the first half we gave them [South Africa] a few opportunities to kick to the corner, and we maintained our discipline and the confidence we got from our maul defence stood to us.

"Our set-piece was unbelievable and our defence was immense. The backs complement the forwards in that respect. It was a proper Test match."

Ireland's Autumn Internationals

Saturday, November 5 Ireland 19-16 South Africa
Saturday, November 12 Ireland vs Fiji 1pm
Saturday, November 19 Ireland vs Australia 8pm

Wales head coach Wayne Pivac warned his side must improve their physicality after New Zealand overpowered them to register a 33rd consecutive victory in the fixture.

New Zealand scored eight tries and a record number of points against Wales in their 55-23 win at Cardiff's Principality Stadium.

The All Blacks were last beaten by Wales in 1953 and 25 of their 33 victories since have been by a margin of 15 points or more.

Scrum-half Aaron Smith, Codie Taylor and Jordie Barrett all scored two tries each with Ardie Savea putting in a powerful man-of-the-match performance which fully displayed his side's intent and power.

"There were a lot of good individual performances, but I think collectively as a group we needed to, at times, be a little bit more physical, come off the line and meet New Zealand," Pivac said.

Wales' Autumn Internationals

Saturday, November 5 Wales 23-55 New Zealand
Saturday, November 12 Wales vs Argentina 5.30pm
Saturday, November 19 Wales vs Georgia 1pm
Saturday, November 26 Wales vs Australia 3.15pm

"Like all good New Zealand sides at the breakdown you question some of the angles they came in from, but that's the way it works on the day," he also noted.

"We've got to make sure we can combat that. We will definitely be looking at that area of the game and making sure we improve next week.

"To release the pressure straight after a score is something we've got to look at. We have to make sure we get right for next week and for other games."

Wales will now prepare for remaining fixtures against Argentina, Georgia and Australia.

Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend has not ruled out a recall for Finn Russell if Adam Hastings fails to recover from injury in time for next weekend's showdown with New Zealand.

The 30-year-old Racing 92 fly-half was left out of the squad for the autumn internationals amid speculation there had been a breakdown in relations between the head coach and player.

Townsend said Russell had been omitted due to question marks over his "form and consistency" levels, with Blair Kinghorn and Hastings chosen as the two main options to play at 10.

Scotland's Autumn Internationals

Saturday, October 29 Scotland 15-16 Australia
Saturday, November 5 Scotland 28-12 Fiji
Sunday, November 13 Scotland vs New Zealand 2.15pm
Saturday, November 19 Scotland vs Argentina 3.15pm

Hastings was forced off early in the second half of the team's 28-12 victory over Fiji with a head injury, while he is also having a knee issue assessed.

Asked if he would consider giving Russell a belated call-up, Townsend said: "If Adam is out, Finn would be in the mix, of course."

Townsend said he had not spoken to Russell since informing him last month he was not in the original squad but the head coach insisted that is not unusual.

"If people are not in the squad I don't phone them up regularly unless there's something to talk about," he said. "But I'd imagine he'd be available.

"He was disappointed not to be in the squad. If we decide to bring another 10, he'll be one of the ones we'll be looking at."
