Central Air Conditioning Installation for Your New Hampshire or Massachusetts Home
Get a New Central AC System, Repair or Replace an Older Unit
There’s no reason to sweat and suffer through summer when you could be keeping cool with a new central air conditioning system. The first step is to have a Heritage HVAC specialist come out to your house and do a thorough analysis of your home’s cooling needs. This will help us recommend the best central AC system for the job.
It usually takes only one day to get a brand new central AC unit installed in your home by our 5-star technicians. We also do all of the necessary air duct work to minimize the amount of energy lost through the ducts when your new system is running.
Do You Need Central AC Repairs, a New System?
Homeowners can troubleshoot some common problems themselves, but most air conditioning issues require a professional HVAC technician who can also assess whether you need repairs or whether you’d be better served by a new, more energy-efficient central air conditioning system. Here are some common air conditioning problems and potential causes/solutions.
Problem: My Air Conditioner Isn’t Cooling Effectively
Potential Causes/Solutions: Possible causes include refrigerant that is low or leaking, thermostat issues, a clogged drain or a dirty filter. You can and should regularly change your filter (every 6-9 months for high-quality 4-inch-thick filters; as often as every 30 days for cheaper 1-inch filters). You can also check to make sure your condensate drain line is not clogged, and check your thermostat to make sure it is set properly and is reading the correct temperature. Issues involving refrigerant are best handled by an HVAC professional because EPA certification is required.
Problem: My Central AC Isn’t Working At All
Potential Causes/Solutions: First, make sure your thermostat is functioning; the problem could be as simple as a burned-out battery. Also, your outdoor compressor and fan controls could be worn out from turning on and off too frequently. If so, you’ll want to check (or have a professional check) your unit’s electrical connections.
Problem: My Air Conditioner Has Limited Air Flow
Potential Causes/Solutions: Your ducts could be clogged or constricted, or leaking air. Your filter could also be part of the problem, restricting airflow through your system, cutting its efficiency and reducing its ability to cool the air. For central air systems, our technicians check for and seal any duct system leakage as part of your periodic maintenance.
Problem: My Energy Bills Are Unusually High
Potential Causes/Solutions: A spike in operating costs most often signals inefficient operation. After a dirty filter, the most likely culprit may be a choked condenser coil. If so, it is probably time for a tune-up.
