Atlas Heating & Air Cond
Heating Services in Oakland, CA
Atlas' history is a veritable history of the furnace itself. In 1908, most homes were heated by pot-bellied stoves or kitchen ranges. George Tuck, the founder of Atlas, designed and manufactured wood and coal furnaces, establishing Atlas as the biggest installer of warm air furnaces in the Bay Area. Always an innovator, Tuck next developed the Atlas gas furnace for manufactured gas. He invented the 1st integrated blower furnace and safety pilot light.

He saved the day - he was very knowledgeable and explained things in a clear concise way. Because of his advice, we now know how to program our thermostat!

Couldn't have asked for better in upfront communication about timing during the window we set up to be aware of his arrival time, his obvious knowledge/expertise, commitment to great service, and politeness.

Furnace Installation & Replacement
read moreHeat rises and the top floor will always be warmer. Your thermostat is usually on the main floor, and when that area reaches temperature the thermostat shuts off the equipment, whether or not the other floors are the same temperature. In some homes, where enough existing duct work is accessible, a multi-zone system can be installed, enabling independent control on each level off of one piece of central heating and or cooling equipment. Often simple reducting, the addition of manual balancing dampers, or the addition of one or more return inlet air ducts can greatly alleviate the problem.
