If you are a homeowner in Aurora, CO, you are fortunate to enjoy the best that Colorado weather has to offer. Summer is warm and sunny, and winter is full of opportunities for snowy recreation or simply sitting inside with a cup of coffee and watching the snowfall. Although not many states can boast such well-defined seasons with so many days of sunshine, this also means that both your air conditioner and your heater need to be in perfect condition and ready to be used at any time. Temperatures can change fast, so be sure you have a trusted HVAC company on call when they do.
Air Conditioning Services
Air conditioning services are not just for when something goes wrong with your AC unit. Care and maintenance, both on an individual and a professional level, should be part of your monthly and yearly routine. Here are the AC services that our team provides in the Aurora area.
There are many reasons to invest in AC tune-ups each year. An AC tune-up can help your air conditioner run smoothly all summer long. Without a tune-up, your system will be working harder to cool your home which will result in higher utilities and a greater likelihood that it will break down.
During a tune-up, a technician will check and lubricate any rotating parts as well as clean the unit to keep dust and dirt from lowering the efficiency of the machine. They will also check refrigerant levels if necessary, and check for leaks or electrical hazards. After your appointment, your AC should produce colder air and work more efficiently. We recommend a tune-up at the end of each winter before the first heatwave.
Tune-ups can help to catch many issues needs before they become a big problem, but there will still be times when you need repair services. If you experience a decreased amount of cold air coming from your vents, your air conditioner is struggling to maintain an ideal temperature, or the air coming out is warm, there is likely a problem with your AC.
Before calling Mac Vik you can always check a couple of things to make sure they are not impacting your air conditioner. You may need to change your filter if it hasn’t been changed in a couple of months, and you may want to check your thermostat to make sure it is on the correct setting. If neither of these quick fixes works, it is time to call us!
If you are building a new home or you are trying to find a new solution for cooling your home, we offer the best installations in the Aurora area. There are many different types of air conditioning systems to choose from, so take your time to research which system is best for your home. If you need help choosing between a heat pump, evaporative cooler, or other types of cooling systems, our experienced technicians are always happy to help you make an informed decision.
Ductless Air Conditioning Installation
A big factor that will affect your decision of which cooling system to use is whether or not you plan to use ductwork to cool your home. Some homes do not have ductwork installed, and it can be an invasive and expensive process to have it installed. If this describes your home, you may not know that there is an alternative on the market that is both effective and affordable. The ductless mini-split system uses a condenser on the outside of your home and a fan on the inside to cool your home. It can be installed in one day and it is perfect for cooling add-ons and smaller homes.
Keeping your home warm is important not only for the comfort of your family but also for their health and safety. If your heater stops working in the middle of a cold spell and you don’t have an alternate source of heat, having your heater fixed becomes an emergency. At Mac Vik, we make sure to keep resources and staff ready so that we can come quickly and assist our Aurora customers when they need us most.
Having your furnace installed by a professional will ensure that it is installed properly and will not become a safety hazard for your home. When choosing a furnace to have installed, you can generally choose between an electric, gas, or oil furnace. Each has pros and cons when it comes to pricing, utility costs, and maintenance costs. You should check utility prices in your area and ask a Mac Vik technician what they recommend for your home. If ductwork is not a possibility in your home, you may have to choose an alternate source of heating such as a pellet stove or gas fireplace. We are happy to help with the installation of any of these options.
Furnaces can last 20 years or more when properly maintained. If your furnace is this old or older, you may begin to notice some signs that it is nearing the end of its life and will need to be replaced. If you are frequently having your furnace repaired, it may be more cost-effective to have a replacement installed. You may notice an increase in your monthly utility bills that no repair or tune-up can fix, and your furnace may be constantly running without warming your home to the desired temperature. If any of these sound familiar, we will be happy to discuss replacement options with you.
One of our goals during a furnace repair is to do such a high-quality job that the problem will never have to be fixed again if the furnace is properly maintained. Every furnace may need several small repairs per year, and staying on top of these repairs will help to give your furnace a long and useful life. If you notice even small changes in the operation of your furnaces such as a new sound or smell, it is time to call a technician to get it checked out. At Mac Vik, we would rather come to your home and find everything operational than have our customers call us when it is already too late.
One of the best ways to prevent major breakdowns is to schedule a yearly tune-up for your furnace. A tune-up is a highly detailed process that is designed to find any potential problems with your furnace as well as make sure all of the components of your furnace are working smoothly. Your technician will go through an extensive series of checks and will clean, lubricate, repair, and change any parts that need service.
In addition to furnaces, we also service, install, and repair boilers for our customers in Aurora. If you notice any problems with your boiler, or if there are areas in your home that are not being heated, give our team a call and we will be there to find a solution. We install the highest quality and most trusted boilers on the market such as Weil-McLain and Lochinvar boilers.
