Highlands Ranch HVAC
Many people move to the Highlands Ranch area because it is the best of both worlds in every sense. It boasts proximity to both the mountains and downtown Denver, and residents enjoy four distinct seasons with all types of weather and many days of sunshine. However, this does mean that both your air conditioner and your heater should be in excellent condition and ready to work at a moment’s notice when the temperatures shift. At Mac-Vik, our goal is to minimize breakdowns by providing the best installations, repairs, and preventative maintenance in the Highlands Ranch area.
Air Conditioning Services
Your AC should be in optimal condition and ready to run from the beginning of May through the scattered days of warm sunshine in October. Achieving this goal requires finding a company that can deliver excellent services every step of the way beginning with installation.
Air Conditioning Repair
Problems with your air conditioner can stem from a lack of maintenance, the age of the unit, or factors beyond your control. When your air conditioner begins to have problems during a heatwave, same-day AC services can be extremely valuable. We are determined to never make our customers wait to have their air conditioners fixed.
You can stay on top of AC repairs by watching for warning signs. The air coming from your vents should always be icy cold. When it starts to feel too warm, you should call us for a repair to avoid paying too much on your utilities to ineffectively cool your home. You should also call if you notice a bad smell coming from your ducts, or if your unit begins to make abnormal noises. A leak in your system warrants an emergency ac repair. The leak is either water or refrigerant and both can be damaging to your home or health.
Air Conditioning Installations
Whether you are installing an air conditioner in your new construction or having your old one replaced, it is essential to have a quality HVAC company come and do the installation right the first time. This will save you time and money in the future and protect your system from malfunctions. We have been installing AC units in the Highlands Ranch area since 1962 and we have the process down to a science.
At Mac-Vik Plumbing & Heating, we have a team of knowledgeable technicians who can provide trustworthy advice about the size and type of AC that is appropriate for different homes. We are also passionate about helping our customers save money by recommending the most energy-efficient models on the market. Cooling your home does not have to cost a fortune every month.
Mini-Split Ductless Air Conditioning
Not every home in the Highlands Ranch area is equipped with ductwork. Installing a traditional air conditioner can be an invasive and expensive process. Thankfully, there are other options available that are affordable, efficient, and fast. Mini-split ductless air conditioners can be installed within hours and provide efficient cooling for your chosen space. Multiple units can be set up in the home giving you control over different zones.
Our installation process begins with determining the size and amount of units that you will need for your home. After the installation, we always remain available for questions regarding the operation of your new system. Our technicians are also trained in repair and preventative maintenance so that your mini-split ductless AC is always there when you need it.
Air Conditioning Tune-Ups
Regardless of the system you choose, it is important to schedule yearly service for your AC to keep it in good condition. AC units that receive proper care will last longer and will continue to provide you with crisp, clean, and cold air summer after summer without causing your energy bill to skyrocket.
Our tune-ups include a series of tests to determine the level of operation of each of the different components to judge if anything needs to be repaired. We check refrigerant levels and test the thermostat. We also change the filter, check safety features, and check electrical connections to make sure the system is safe and fully functional.
Although Highlands Ranch residents enjoy many days of bright sunshine even during the winter, it can get bitingly cold. Having an adequate heating system in your home that is reliable is as much a matter of safety as it is of comfort. At Mac-Vik Plumbing & Heating, we can take care of your heating system with our comprehensive repairs and installations.
At Mac-Vik, we pride ourselves on the most efficient scheduling in the Highlands Ranch area. We always work with you to find the most convenient time for repairs and we never make you wait for hours for our technicians to arrive. If your furnace breaks down, it is rarely on a conveniently warm day. Your family and your plumbing both rely on warm temperatures within the home so we always work to diagnose and fix the problem quickly.
One of the first things we do is draw up a cost vs benefit plan to help you decide between a repair and a replacement. Many problems are quick and affordable to fix, but in some cases, a replacement may be more economical. We will be there through the whole process to assist in any way we can.
You may need a new furnace if you have had your old one for over 20 years or if it becomes too expensive to fix. Thankfully, when it comes to furnace installations, you are in good hands with Mac-Vik. We know the Highland Ranch area well and we can help you decide between an electric, gas, or oil furnace. Our recommendations are usually based on the costs of utilities in your area and the efficiency of the system you want to install.
Additionally, if you are installing a furnace in a new home, you can trust us for the system installation as well as ductwork design and installation. We are experts at engineering ductwork that works well with your furnace and will heat the whole home evenly and efficiently.
Like any other system in the home, your furnace needs care and maintenance so that it can continue to do its job day after day through the cold winter season. While the homeowner is responsible for changing the filter every 1 to 3 months, you will need professional assistance to check and test the other components. Our technicians can clean dust and debris from the system, check the heating element to make sure it is working properly, replace anything that has been damaged by friction, and lubricate moving parts.
Many Highlands Ranch homes have boilers or other heating systems in their home rather than a furnace. A boiler heats your home using hot water and it can create heat that is softer and less drying. We strongly recommend preventative maintenance for our customers who have boilers to prevent more expensive repairs. If your boiler is making noises or is starting to smell like rotten eggs, you should call our team right away for repair services. We also have the best boiler installation services in the area and we take pride in the high-quality brands and models that we stock.
Sufficient heating and air conditioning are both important in the Highlands Ranch area. You never want to be stuck in extreme temperatures without an HVAC system that works flawlessly. Rely on our team at Mac-Vik Plumbing & Heating for all of your HVAC needs.
