ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Cold weather is moving into south Georgia.  Below freezing temperatures are expected this week, and many of you are firing up your heaters for the first time.

Our WALB weather team says some areas could see freezing temperatures Wednesday night.  Heating and cooling technicians say they've been swamped by many residents anticipating the cooler weather.

They say systems that have been sitting idle for a while could fail if they're not checked out. 

"Don't wait for your system...you know, for it to get cold.  Then it may be too late.  And when temperatures do drop, typically we all have high call volume.  There's only so many of us out there to get to you," said Matt Lane, Sales and Service Director.

Lane says checking electrical connections and carbon monoxide detectors are some of the most important things to do before firing up your furnace.  He also says residents should only choose certified technicians to do any maintenance on heating units. 

Technicians recommend getting your system checked twice a year.  Once in spring for cooling season, and again in fall for heating season.
