I am very happy with my purchase and the fireplace installation. My wife and I have used it multiple times since it was installed and it works exactly as advertised. It turned a cold room in to a... comfy room that we thoroughly enjoy.My wife and I were leaning towards purchasing a fireplace with high BTU output and a fan. The team at Harding pushed back, and said we would be too hot. I appreciate their honesty. Consider they gave up a bigger sale.The installers (James + Adam) were thorough, neat and patient answering our many questions. I told them that my former wood fireplace had an ice-cold hearth. I asked them why, and they showed me that the original fireplace was not assembled correctly; it allowed cold air to come down around the fireplace, especially the hearth. It was awful. I really appreciated how they sealed the leak and added insulation. The problem was eliminated.The finishing team (Brandon and colleague) were also meticulous. They did not rush the job. I was out of town during the finishing and they suggested WhatsApp video calls, which worked very well and allayed my concerns.I would especially like to acknowledge Kirsten Neumarker. She is the project coordinator at Harding who schedules resources to install and finish fireplaces. She is very organized and is an excellent communicator. She reached out to me proactively and worked hard to accommodate my schedule also. She would often answer my emails and phone calls in minutes. I find this uncommon among contractors. She made a difference.Overall, a positive experience and I recommend them without reservations.Oh, and check out the photo attached of the finished product. We love it!Mikeread more

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

How to Identify Common AC Problems

To keep your AC system running smoothly during the hot summer months, it’s important to know how to identify common AC problems. Some of the most common issues that homeowners may encounter include:

  • Malfunctioning thermostat
  • Refrigerant leak
  • Frozen evaporator coil
  • Dirty filters

A malfunctioning thermostat can force the AC to turn on and off irregularly or not turn on at all. Dirty filters can restrict airflow, making the AC to work harder than it should, and reduce the indoor air quality. A refrigerant leak can cause the AC to blow warm air or not blow air at all. A frozen evaporator coil can lead to reduced airflow and decreased cooling capacity.

To identify these problems, homeowners should pay attention to signs such as:

  • Warm air blowing from the vents
  • Reduced airflow
  • Strange noises or smells
  • Increased humidity levels

It’s important to address these issues promptly to prevent further damage to your air conditioning system. If you live in Ottawa and notice any of these signs, call Team Harding right away for emergency AC repair.

To help prevent problems and the need for emergency AC repair, homeowners can perform simple maintenance tasks like:

  • Cleaning/changing the air filter regularly
  • Scheduling annual maintenance checks

Issues with Older Air Conditioners

While you might think your AC still has lots of life left in it, it could be time for an upgrade or replacement. If you have an older air conditioner, you may experience some issues that are specific to aging systems.

Here are some common problems you may encounter:

Musty Smells

Older air conditioners can develop a musty smell due to mold and mildew growth inside the unit. This can be caused by moisture buildup or dirty air filters.

Reduced Efficiency

Over time, the parts in an AC system can wear down and become less efficient. This can result in higher energy bills and reduced cooling capacity.

Frequent Breakdowns

As an air conditioner ages, it may require more frequent repairs to keep it running smoothly. This can be due to worn-out parts, refrigerant leaks, or other issues. Either way, it’s going to cost you.

R-22 Refrigerant

If your air conditioner uses R-22 refrigerant, you may run into problems as this refrigerant is being phased out due to its harmful effects on the environment. Repairs for R-22 refrigerant systems may become increasingly expensive, and it may be more cost-effective to replace the unit with a newer, more environmentally friendly model.

If you’re experiencing any of these issues with your older air conditioner, it may be time to consider replacing it with a newer, more efficient model. A Team Harding HVAC technician can assess your system and provide recommendations for the best course of action.

Why Does My Air Conditioner Smell Musty?

If your air conditioner is emitting a musty smell, there are several potential causes:

  • Mold and mildew growth – Air conditioners create a cool, damp environment that can be a breeding ground for mold and mildew. These fungi can grow on the unit’s evaporator coils, drain pans, and air filters. This can cause a musty odor.
  • Clogged air filters – If your air filters are clogged with dust and debris, they can trap moisture and lead to mold growth.
  • Dirty condensate drain lines – The condensate drain lines remove excess moisture from your AC unit, but if they become clogged with dirt or algae, they can produce a musty smell.
  • Improper unit installation – If your air conditioner was not installed properly, it can create moisture buildup and encourage mold growth.
  • Poor ventilation – If your home has poor ventilation, it can trap moisture inside and worsen mold and mildew growth.

If your AC has a musty smell, you should first replace any clogged air filters. If the smell persists, call Team Harding to have one of our HVAC technicians clean your AC’s condensate drain lines or perform a more thorough cleaning of the unit.

In some cases, you may need to consider replacing your air conditioner if it’s old or was not installed properly.

When Is It Time to Replace Your AC Unit?

Not sure if it’s time to replace your AC unit or not? We’ll help you decide whether you should simply fix your air conditioner or get a new one.

Here are some key indicators that it’s time to replace your AC unit:

Age

Air conditioners typically last 10-15 years. If your unit is approaching, or is beyond this age range, it may be time to replace it.

More Frequent Breakdowns

If you find yourself calling Team Harding for repairs all the time, it’s probably more cost-effective to replace your AC unit rather than continually repairing it.

Rising Energy Bills

Are your utility bills higher than normal? As air conditioners age, they become less efficient and require more energy to operate. If you’ve noticed a steady increase in your energy bills, it could be due to an inefficient AC unit in need of replacement.

Uneven Cooling

If some rooms in your home are consistently warmer than others, it may be a sign that your AC unit is no longer able to effectively cool your entire home.

Excessive Noise

If your AC unit is making loud or unusual noises, it may be an indication of internal problems that could be costly to repair. It might be time to get a new unit.

R-22 Refrigerant

If your AC unit still uses R-22 refrigerant, also known as Freon, it’s definitely time to replace it. R-22 is being phased out due to its harmful impact on the environment, and its production has been banned since 2020.
