I changed the rate because the reaction from site office is extremely satisfy. I have no heat during the weekend and complained. I got a respond very quickly from their site office and find out the... reason of no respond. Then a new appoint was scheduled right way! Also a report has been filed towards this issue and I believe communication will be taken to improve future services. I really like this manner! Thank you.//I have no heat on the coldest day this winter. I called for service at 10:28am, and the office lady said someone will reach me ASAP. I called at 17:26pm again because NO ONE called me the whole day. And I was told there is a long list so THEY DON'T CARE! I HAVE TO WAIT! And this is a same problem happened second time in two years. Do not recommend.read more

I had an extremely positive experience with Team Harding from beginning to end. I had them install a Sterling Model GG 45,000 BTU Natural Gas Garage Heater with a Nest Learning Thermostat in my... double garage (Man-Cave).The sales rep, Brian was professional, friendly, he wasn’t pushy at all and he came under budget. Kirsten constantly kept me up to date on the installer’s scheduling and was a true professional. The installers came on time, did a tremendous job with the installation and they even cleaned up afterwards. Absolute Rock Stars!Again, thank you so very much to everyone that worked on this project for me.I highly recommend using Team Harding for your home projects.read more

Harding Heating & Air Conditioning were excellent. We had an issue with our furnace fan and I spoke to Natasha Wright (Service Coordinator) who first tried to troubleshoot the problem with me to... save costs, etc. Once that didn't work, a technician, Marc Gagon, attended. He quickly diagnosed the problem (faulty control board), but didn't stop there. He investigated the source - water under the AC coils. Further, he went outside to ensure the A/C unit was working properly. Marc Gagon is very professional, competent and took the time to explain things. He is a asset to Harding Heating & Air Conditioning, along with Natasha Wright. I highly recommend this company for your heating and a/c needs. Shawnread more

We have a 28 year old air-source heat pump that needed some TLC.Harding sent their tech out to diagnose, and provide options and pricing. Very reasonable.Exterior unit needed a new fan motor.... Within a few days an installer came and installed new motor, but made a slight error, and it was rotating the wrong way. Quick call had it corrected. Further found our defrost board was faulty. Harding provided quote upfront for a replacement aftermarket board. Kept in contact as to timeline and expected deliver and installation date.Tech came on-site as promised, did the install, and stayed to make sure unit was cycling properly. Billed for the quoted amount.Harding delivers what's promised, when promised, at quoted price. And has staff who know what they're looking at.Hard to ask for more from an HVAC service provider.read more

Very professional amazing staff. We had a technician come to see our old air conditioner which was beyond repair (we figured it would be). Next they had a staff member come to our house to look at... our furnaces and give recommendations for new air conditioners, he was very thorough and explained all our options in detail. Finally they came to disconnect the old air conditioner to take away for us and install the new air conditioners. The technicians were on time, very polite, did an amazing job and cleaned up after themselves above and beyond what I expected. Their prices were very reasonable and the after care packages that are included give us peace of mind for the future. I would highly recommend this company to anyone. Thank you Harding!read more

Service is always great and with slight occasional follow-ups needed on the customer service calls, but the customer service and service people are great. They arrived promptly and easily fixed the... furnace issue we had as per scheduled. The defective part had to be ordered, but took only a day plus, and it was installed and working the next day, so now the house is warm again. Great service, that's why we've been with this service company since nearly 17 years. Highly recommend this furnace servicing company.read more

Air Conditioner Financing & Rental Options 

One of the biggest reasons homeowners avoid investing a new air conditioner is the price. It’s true that purchasing an air conditioner can be a large investment for your home. But, you don’t have to worry about paying the whole cost up-front. At Team Harding, you can finance or rent-to-own your new air conditioner. We offer low-interest rates, flexible payment options, and high approval rates.

Factors That Impact the Cost of a New AC

When it comes to AC installation, prices are always top of mind for homeowners. There are a variety of things that affect the overall cost of a new cooling system. The different factors that contribute the total cost of an air conditioner include:

Energy efficiency 

A more energy-efficient model will cost more upfront but save you money in energy bills. A less energy-efficient model will be cheaper but cost you more in the long run.

The type of system

The type of AC unit affects the price. For example, a ductless mini-split AC and a central air conditioner will vary in price.

Necessary ductwork

If you buy a central air conditioner and your home isn’t equipped with the necessary ductwork, you’ll have to spend more to renovate your home to accommodate the unit.

Home system and size

The size of the air conditioner you buy will depend on the size of your home. Typically, the more square footage, the bigger and more costly the air conditioner.

The Best SEER Rating for an Air Conditioner

The SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is a simple equation created to calculate the performance and energy efficiency of your cooling system. To determine your air conditioner’s SEER rating, divide the total energy required of an AC by the total electrical energy required to run your system during the same period. Essentially, the higher the SEER rating, the less energy your air conditioner consumes.

Most new air conditioners will come with a SEER rating of around 16, which is good. Anything above a 16 rating is great and will save you a lot of money on cooling. When shopping for your new air conditioner, aim to buy a unit with at least a 16 SEER rating.

The Daikin Fit Air Conditioner

It’s important to do your research on which model of air conditioner you should install based on your home’s needs. Since it’s an investment in your home, you want to choose from the top units. The Daikin FIT system is one of the best options. It’s one of the leading air conditioners in efficiency, size, and power. There are several reasons why so many homeowners opt for the Daikin FIT, including:

  • High-efficiency
  • Cost-effective
  • Powerful, variable-speed fan
  • Quieter than other systems
  • Compatible with Daikin One+ smart thermostat
  • Corrosion coating to protect from outdoor wear and tear
  • Compact and small, ideal for small homes and cottages
  • Designed and built by a world-leading HVAC manufacturer
