Historical home with pealing paint on siding

I have a home dated to the 1850's, but has been recently completely remodeled. I know that they put new paint on the home, and I am sure that they heat stripped the old coat. It has been only a few months since we moved in and it is already pealing. Any suggestions on the course of action needed to remedy this before new paint is applied?

In the areas where it is peeling, is there bare wood exposed? Or is the primer still adhering to the wood?

There is bare wood showing. I can see the prime on the pieces that are pealing off.

Evidently, the primer did not bond to the wood. This could be because the surface is contaminated, the wood was damp and alkyd primer was used, or there is moisture trapped behind the siding. You did not mention how old the paint coat is.
