Show your furnace system some TLC
Homeowners should replace their furnace filter every 60 to 90 days. Yet, for many homeowners, replacing the furnace filter is a household chore that falls under the radar. But operating a furnace with a dirty filter can lead to a breakdown.
Furnace filters remove particulates such as dust, pollen, and pet dander. When it becomes, it can your furnace has to work harder and can cause heat exchanger to overheat and fail.
If you’ve properly replaced your furnace filter and are still experiencing furnace problems, like high energy bills, call the heating specialists at Harker. We’ll visit your home and give you a fair estimate to fix it fast.
Is it time to repair or replace your air conditioner?
In Verona, we may only use our air conditioner for three months out of the year, but it’s not exactly something Wisconsinites can live without. Though we’re better known for our freezing winters, our summers also get brutally hot — and everybody needs a place to cool off.
Not sure if your home cooling system is on the fritz? Here are 5 signs your A//C needs repair:
- The unit is blowing hot air
- There are water leaks or excessive moisture
- The unit makes strange, grating sounds
- Blowing air smells bad
- Your home feels sticky with humidity
If your air conditioner unit is more than 10 years old, it may be time to consider a replacement. Call Harker’s team of cooling specialists. We can help you find an a/c unit that is perfect for your home.

Harker’s IAQ experts are on hand to help you discover the indoor air quality system that’s fit for your family. From portable air purifiers to whole-home air filtration systems, we’re here to help you breathe easy again.
Things that can cause your water heater to burst
When your water heater bursts it can feel like a scene out of a bad movie. One moment you’re relaxing at home — and in the next, your ceiling is caving and water starts rushing in every direction. That’s the worst-case scenario, of course. Before you find yourself scrambling to stop the flow of water, it’s better to understand what causes water heaters to burst.
The most common signs include:
- A build-up of sediment, such as dirt and sand
- Corrosion in the tanks, as indicated by rusty water
- Too much internal pressure, or a broken T&P valve
