FAQs: HVAC Services in Newton

What Do I Need to Know When Hiring a Newton Area HVAC Company?

If you’re looking for an HVAC company that will meet your needs, you should consider the following things:

  • Company’s experience
  • Licensing and certifications
  • Reputation
  • Ability to provide referrals
  • Typical response time to a call
  • Rebates or financing that are offered

You will want to do your research to see what differentiates one HVAC company from another, and while experience in the field shouldn’t be the only determining factor, years of experience on the job, paired with appropriate training means that your home will be in good hands.

At Gervais, we aim to show you what sets us apart from other HVAC companies in Newton. With 18 years in the HVAC business and over 100 years of combined experience among our technicians, we’re the right company for any HVAC job. Call today to see the Gervais difference in Newton for all HVAC needs.

How Do I Know if My Heat Pump Needs to Be Replaced or Repaired?

Because your heat pump is a type of HVAC system that provides heating and cooling for your home, making sure it’s operating properly and efficiently is important for your home’s comfort. Once you start to have problems with your heat pump, it can be hard to know whether it can just be repaired, or if you have to get a replacement.

If your heat pump is less than 10 years old, then it might make sense to continue to make necessary repairs and yearly maintenance appointments. But, if you’ve noticed a change in your home’s indoor air quality, there are strange sounds coming from your heat pump, or you’ve had multiple repairs made on your current heat pump and it’s getting up there in age (10 years older or more), then a new heat pump might be your best option.

If you have questions about your home’s heat pump, contact Gervais! Our professional HVAC contractors in Newton, MA are trained to go over any questions you have and offer solutions for heating repairs and replacement.

What Is the Process for Installing a New Central Air Conditioner?

Having a new air conditioner installation is a complicated process that should only be handled by a licensed HVAC contractor. In Newton, when you schedule AC install services, you should expect the following:

  • An in-home inspection and review of your current AC system to help you determine what kind of new unit you’ll need.
  • Removal of any old unit and wiring with a special recovery machine to safely keep refrigerant from being vented.
  • Current concrete pad will be removed and a new composite pad will need to be installed.
  • Current indoor evaporator coils and refrigerant lines will be removed and new ones will be installed.
  • Necessary connections and voltage wiring will be attached to your new AC unit.

And then once everything is in place and connected, the technician will conduct a commissioning process to make sure that everything will work properly.

Because all Gervais technicians are fully licensed and EPA-certified, you can be confident that your AC install service will be conducted safely and properly. For a top-quality air conditioner installation or any HVAC replacement, in Newton, MA, call Gervais today!

What Are the Most Common HVAC Issues?

The most avoidable, but common HVAC issues that most people experience result from a lack of regular maintenance. Scheduling regular check-ups for your HVAC system is an important part of keeping your home’s heating and cooling system working properly.

Common HVAC issues that are simple to address include dirty filters, problems with programmable thermostats, and blown fuses or tripped breakers.

More difficult HVAC concerns will require professional repair services. The most common issues involve a dirty pilot, dirty coils, mechanical wear and tear, motor issues, and water leaks from clogged or cracked lines.

Whether you need to schedule that all-important yearly check-up, or you are experiencing an HVAC emergency, Gervais Mechanical has got you covered. Call us today to see how we can help you with all of your HVAC services in Newton, MA.

What Are the Most Common Home Plumbing Issues?

Whether it’s a clogged drain or toilet, problems with water pressure, leaky pipes, or water heater issues, at some point, most homeowners will run into some type of plumbing problem.

Unfortunately, plumbing issues can range from just annoying to very costly. Dripping faucets and running toilets lead to wasting water. Clogged or leaky pipes can cause damage. Low water pressure can be a sign of a much bigger problem like pipe corrosion and leaks within the home.

Don’t let common plumbing problems cost you unnecessary time or money. The plumbers at Gervais can quickly diagnose your issue and give you the solutions you need in a timely manner. Call us today to learn more about our comprehensive plumbing services in Newton, MA!
