McFarland’s HVAC Experts
One of the best things about living in McFarland is the opportunity to enjoy all four seasons. But with such a wide range of weather events affecting your home, there are bound to be HVAC problems along the way. Luckily, Harker has been providing heating and cooling equipment repairs and replacement services to McFarland neighbors for more than six decades.
Ways to tell if your furnace is outdated
McFarland experiences brutal winter weather with temperatures often dipping to below freezing. All the while, your home furnace is working extra hard to heat your home. While it can be tempting to crank up the heat when you walk through the door, it won’t do any good with an outdated furnace.
Here are a few ways to tell if your furnace is outdated:
- Age: This one might sound the most obvious, but if your furnace is more than 15 years old, it may be time to replace your home heating system.
- Energy Efficiency: One of the easiest ways to determine if you need a new furnace is to look at your energy bill. Note if it seems higher than usual, or if you’re using more fuel for an oil furnace.
- Other Signs: Is your furnace overcycling, blowing cold air, or making weird noises? These are all signs of problems with your furnace.
If you’re not sure whether to repair or replace your furnace, call the heating experts at Harker. Our HVAC specialists will visit your home, assess your furnace, and provide you with a fair estimate.
How to know when to replace an old air conditioner
Whether you have central air cooling, or a window air conditioner unit, if the equipment is old you’re likely paying higher utility costs — and still breaking a sweat. And in McFarland, where summer temperatures can swelter, having a functioning air conditioning system is a top priority.
We want you to feel comfortable in your home. If your A/C system is dripping water, blowing warm air, smells funny — or is just plain outdated — Harker’s cooling experts can install a new A/C system for you. We invite you to visit our showroom, or speak with one of our HVAC specialists to see what air conditioning system works best for your home.
Breathe easy with indoor air quality filtration systems
Sometimes it isn’t just an outdated heating or cooling system that’s the problem — it’s poor indoor air quality. Did you know that the average home can be up to 100 times more polluted than the outside air?
Particles such as dust, pollen, pet dander and mold can build up in your HVAC system and can affect your heating and cooling equipment, and the health of your family.
Harker carries a full line of indoor air quality systems to help you keep the air in your home, fresh, clean and pure. From high-efficiency air filtration to portable dehumidifiers, we’ve got you covered.
