Here is some more detailed information about what we can do for you.

    Barrington Furnace and AC Repair

    Repair is at the core of most HVAC businesses. Not only can our team skillfully fix all manner of malfunctions with HVAC systems and their various components and subsystems, but we proudly offer our customers the ability to call on us for repairs 24/7. You can’t control when an AC or furnace breaks down, and we don’t believe you should have to be stuck sweating or shivering.

    HVAC repairs usually involve actions like fixing or replacing defective parts. On the AC side, evaporator and condenser coils frequently fall into this category. On the furnace side, something like a blower motor may break down. Another possibility is that your system could trip your circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The possible issues calling for repair are endless, but our team has the skills to handle them all.

    Installing or Replacing Systems

    As important as repairs are, there may come a point at which they can no longer do any good. If you notice the kinds of repair-necessitating problems that we’ve highlighted recurring over and over, it may be best to cut your losses and simply replace your old system. This is as true for furnaces, boilers, and heat pumps as it is for mini-split ACs. As a general rule, once an HVAC system is more than about 15 years old, its functioning will likely take a nosedive, even if it has been exceptionally well-maintained. Radiant heating systems may last up to 20 years before you’ll need to replace them.

    Another issue to consider is that over time, technology continues to develop, and HVAC systems improve. They become better able to cool or heat your home while using less energy. They become easier to maintain, less likely to break down, and easier to calibrate and program more precisely. The last issue on this list is mainly a consequence of improvements in thermostat technology. An exceptionally old HVAC system, even if it can still do its job, may not be worth keeping if it means missing out on such benefits.

    The Importance of HVAC Maintenance

    To bring home the importance of scheduling regular maintenance on your HVAC system, here are a few things that maintenance allows you to do.
    • Lengthen system lifespan
    • Improve and maintain system efficiency
    • Save money on repairs or installations
    • Improve indoor air quality
    • Enable you to take advantage of your HVAC system’s manufacturer’s warranty

    The above considerations apply to all parts of an HVAC system universally. These benefits form some of the core reasons why HVAC professionals overwhelmingly recommend that everyone schedules professional maintenance on their system at least once per year. Without proof of annual system maintenance, most HVAC manufacturers will not agree to extend their warranties to you if your system sustains any kind of serious damage.

    AC maintenance may involve cleaning vents, changing filters, cleaning condenser or evaporator coils (or unfreezing the evaporator coil if it freezes), checking electrical connections, and examining refrigerant pressure. Furnace maintenance may involve checking for soot or dirt buildup, making sure critical pipes and valves are not corroded (especially the vent connection pipe), and examining the heat exchanger and combustion chamber for damage.
