Westport’s top heating and cooling company
Enjoying all four seasons is one of the best things about living in Westport, especially in summer when we can spend time out on the water. But when it’s time to cool off — or cozy up — you rely on your HVAC systems to keep you and your family comfortable.
It can be frustrating when your furnace or air conditioner goes on the fritz. You don’t want to spend the time or the money to fix the problem. We understand. That’s why we strive to provide fair estimates and fast repairs. Just ask your neighbors. We’ve been serving the Westport area for more than 65 years.
Is your furnace on its last leg?
Maybe when you bought your dream home, you knew the furnace was on its last leg. But lately, you’ve noticed funny smells, rust on the furnace, and strange noises when the unit kicks on.
Westport winters can be brutal, so the last thing you want is to be left in the cold. Don’t wait until your furnace no longer warms your home. Call the heating experts at Harker for furnace repairs or replacement.
We invite you to visit our showroom, where our heating specialists can show you our wide variety of gas or electric furnaces; we have fireplaces, too.
How to know when to replace an old air conditioner
It’s hard to believe, but one of the most common causes of air conditioner failure is because homeowners neglect to change out the air filter. The air filter not only prevents things like mud, grass clippings or pet hair from getting into your unit — it also prevents these from getting blown into your home.
If you’ve noticed an increase in your energy bills, check your A/C filter. If you’re still experiencing other telltale signs of an air conditioner breakdown, such as leaking or bad smells, call the cooling experts at Harker. We handle jobs both big and small.
The hidden air pollution in your home
If you have family members who are experiencing unexplained headaches, fatigue, or respiratory problems, your home’s indoor air quality could be to blame. According to the EPA, the air in your home could be anywhere from two to five times more polluted than outdoor air.
Especially during the winter months, contaminants such as dust, pollen, pet dander, and mold can become trapped in your HVAC system and enter the air of your home. We carry a high-quality line of air purification systems, from high-efficiency air filtration to portable dehumidifiers, we’ve got you covered. Don’t risk your health. Consider investing in an indoor air quality solution through Harker.
Water heater leaves sediment in the drain
Over time, mineral deposits and other gunk can gather in your water heater tank and make it lose its efficiency. You may notice low water pressure or sediment in your drain after you shower.
While tutorials can show you how to flush your tank on your own, we never advise attempting water heater repairs on your own. This is especially true if your system is more than 15 years old, and is already at risk of further corrosion or leaks.
Harker’s HVAC experts can help you assess the source of the sediment buildup, and determine whether your water heater is in need of maintenance, repairs or replacement. Give us a call and schedule your in-home estimate today.
