My parents live in a bungalow in Etobicoke. Even though the lake is right there, that isn’t always enough to keep them cool in the summer. Sure they don’t like to complain about the heatwaves or humidity, but I knew it was becoming more of a concern as they got into their senior years. My wife and I talked to them about it and we all agreed that replacing their residential central air conditioning unit – which stopped working years ago – was a solid option for them.

Residential Central Air Conditioning Is Worth The Price

Once we started to shop prices of different models available, we realized that getting a new residential central air conditioning unit wasn’t as expensive as we had originally feared. Thankfully, a co-worker recommended Air Conditioner Pro to get us started. They were great right from the start and paid us a visit to give an accurate assessment.

Since the bungalow wasn’t the biggest, and the existing ductwork had held up just fine over the years, the cost was actually more affordable than we’d thought. Plus it came with a good warranty, just in case.

Residential Central Air Conditioning Made A Huge Difference

Once the installation was done, my parents noticed a difference right away. They felt more comfortable in their own home which honestly took a load off my mind. I know they’re safe in the summer and don’t have to worry about them as much. Plus the kids really appreciate it too since they spend some time there after school most days.

Overall, I’m very pleased with my whole experience. From start to finish, Air Conditioner Pro made it pretty easy and I just wanted to say they come highly recommended from my family and I.

If you need help or are thinking about upgrading your residential central air conditioning, don’t hesitate to contact us at 647-547-4049. Customer service is very important to us, which is why someone on our team is always ready to answer your call. We’re even available 24/7 in the event of an emergency.

Like most HVAC technicians we recommend changing your furnace and air conditioner air filter every month or two. By name alone we all understand that this is important in order to keep the air in our homes clean, but that’s only part of the reason why you should change it often. Changing your air conditioner air filter is also especially important to avoid damage to your air conditioner.

Essentially, your air conditioner air filter is there to prevent damage, but if you’ve put the wrong one you can do more harm than good, and here’s how.

How Your Air Conditioner Air Filter Protects Your System

Primarily your air filter does in fact filter the air, which leads to cleaner air in your home. There are fewer allergens and dust and the air is generally fresher. The intention of an air filter is to avoid having anything large sucked into the blower, which can lead to damage that is expensive to repair. Without an air conditioner air filter, your blower can build up with dust and other large debris and ultimately breakdown.

The competing factor with ensuring cleanliness of air and keeping dirt and debris out is air flow. Allowing air to move through your system is important for efficiency and reducing wear and tear on your system. If your air filter is too dirty it reduces air flow, which means your blower has to work harder to move air around your home. This creates unnecessary stress on your blower, reduces the air quality, and makes your system work harder, which in turn uses more energy and costs you money.

Upgrading Your Air Filter

Dirty air filters that are the wrong size and rating for your furnace can do just as much damage as a dirty one. the extra fibers that rap particles and allergens in your super expensive air filter might do just that, but they also drastically impede air flow. These fibers are incredibly tightly woven, which means your air will be a little cleaner, but your unit will work much harder to move air.

The MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) of your air filter is a good indicator of how well it filters. Most air conditioners come with a filter of about 1-4 MERV, but may be able to hold a filter of up to MERV 8. However, if the filter is too strong, you put your air conditioner at risk.

If you’ve got Asthma or another respiratory disease then you understand how humidity can affect your breathing. Ductless air conditioners are a great way to rid your home of humidity, which can be referred to as dehumidification. Dehumidification occurs when the humidity is removed from the air being cooled and circulated throughout your home.

Main Benefits Of Dehumidification

  • Improve Your Home’s Smell / Indoor Air Quality – If the air in your home isn’t as refreshing as you want it to be then it could be the result of dampness. Dehumidification can remove the dampness from your home and in turn get rid of and mould or mildew smells that might also be lingering. Dehumidification helps reduce odours that can accompany mould and mildew in your home, thus getting rid of that “musty” smell that you might refer to, especially in your basement.
  • Protect Clothes & Fabrics – If mould or humidity is allowed to build up in your home the chances of mould growth on clothing and furniture can drastically increase. Especially if it’s stored in tight spaces. This mould can also develop on bed linens, towels curtains and other fabrics. Dehumidification is an excellent way to alleviate this problem.
  • Protected Property – Dehumidification can help to protect your property by way of fighting rust and corrosion. If  you notice that your electronics, tools or appliances are developing rust or corrosion, it might be the result of too much moisture in the area. Dehumidify these areas quickly with your ductless air conditioner.
  • Freshen Up Your Home – When your home is less humid everything is affected. Your clothes will dry faster, your cereal will be freshen, your bread will last longer and won’t go stale as quickly. There are a number of places where dehumidification can help.
  • Quicker Cleaning Times – Dehumidification helps to reduce dust in your home. Less dust means you won’t have to clean as often.

Rid Your Home Of Humidity

When you consider your next ductless air conditioner or heat pump, be sure that it will help dehumidify your home. Summer time in Toronto and the GTA can be humid, and protecting your property is as simple as the flick of a switch. It’s also just that easy to help with respiratory diseases and other health concerns related to humidity.

Air Conditioner Pro recently took some time to answer a call for someone looking to know more about ductless air vs. central air. This is Tom’s story.

Ductless Air Is Perfect For Pets

Toronto and the GTA can get quite warm in the summer, and no one knows this better than Tom. As a certified plumber, he makes house calls throughout the day. That means driving from location to location and since he represents a smaller business, that usually means he’s working past 5pm.

Tom has a smaller place of his own in the east end like most Torontonians nowadays. His dog Oscar lives with him. Just like you shouldn’t leave a pet in a hot car while you go shopping, you really shouldn’t leave them in a hot house either. As a responsible pet owner, Tom would ask his elderly neighbour to dog-sit on especially humid days knowing that this neighbour had air conditioning. With this neighbour getting ready to move in with their family, Tom needed to find another way to keep Oscar comfortable in the summer.

Is Ductless Air Better Than Central Air?

Tom decided to give us a call after doing some homework on ductless air systems. After answering a few of his concerns, we convinced him to let us provide an assessment of his home. With just a simple basement apartment setup to keep cool, we knew ductless air was the way to go for Tom and Oscar.

Ductless air works best when trying to control room temperature of a given area of a home. It pulls in air from outside, cools it, and then distributes it to a large area (like a living room), known as spot cooling. Combine this with a well insulated home, and ductless air works like a dream – even in muggy summer weather.

Heating your home can account for up to 35% of your energy bill throughout the winter, so it’s important to choose the best option for home heating. A heat pump is a common option in older homes throughout Toronto and the GTA. They’re cost effective and much more efficient than traditional electric heating. They also won’t break the bank when it comes to purchasing and installation like a central heating system will, which involves installing an entire duct system.

It’s important to get the most out of your heat pump, which means understand that they’re not a one size fits all type of appliance. Choosing the right model for your home or space is key. If it’s too big or small it might cost you more than it needs to depending on your usage. Proper maintenance is also very important to evaluating how much it will cost and how efficiently it runs.

Do Heat Pumps Really Save Money?

Yes, heat pumps are efficient in cold weather and can save you money compared to other forms of heating. How much they cost depends on how long you use them, how well you maintain them and how old they are. If you operate one for 6 hours a day for 6 months of the year its energy usage will be about 6 KWh, and depending on your energy bills can work out to around $400 a year. By comparison an electric heating system, such as baseboard heaters can cost you around double that over the course of a year.

Eight Ways To Save Money Using Your Heat Pump

  1. Keep the settings low (18ºC or – 20ºC). If your heat pump is set to maximum it won’t necessarily heat the room any quicker, but it will use more energy.
  2. Fall heat pump maintenance is important and can ensure it’s running as efficiently as possible in time for heavy usage.
  3. Clean both your indoor and outdoor filters at least once a year.
  4. Only heat the spaces you’re using, otherwise you’ll be heating empty rooms and wasting energy and money.
  5. Turn off your heat pump when it’s not in use. It can run for as long as you need, but make sure you switch it off when you’re not using it.
  6. Close doors and curtains to keep the heat in, especially on very cold days. If the sun is shining bright it can help heat rooms, so allowing sunlight in can be an exception.
  7. The better insulated your home, the better it will hold the heat and the more energy efficient your heat pump will be.
  8. Use the heat pump timer to heat up your home 15 minutes before you come home.

Overall, your heat pump can be an efficient components of your home, if you use it and maintain it properly. For more information about heat pumps or to schedule an appointment for installation contact a Air Conditioner Pro HVAC technician today: 647-547-4049

As energy costs continually rise, we as homeowners are constantly looking for ways to save money around the house and energy savings are an easy and obvious way. For the most part updating light bulbs, insulation in the walls, new appliances and some other features is a great way to save energy, but tuning up existing appliances is also key. Your heat pump is no exception. Properly maintaining your heat pump can go a long way in terms of its efficiency, operation and longevity.

Maintaining Your Heat Pump Will Save Energy

It’s simple, maintaining your heat pump will save energy. Annual maintenance will keep your heat pump running as efficiently as possible. The difference between the energy consumption of a well-maintained heat pump and a severely neglected one ranges from 10% to 25%. That can be hundreds of dollars a year in savings. Imagine what else you could spend that money on!

Filters are important to change as soon as they’re dirty. A clogged filter slows down air flow and forces your heat pump to work harder to move air, whether it’s hot or cold. By working harder your heat pump is using more energy and costing you more each month on your energy bills. Maintaining your heat pump will address dirty filters, coils and fans and help air move as it was intended to. In addition to affecting efficiency, reduced airflow can damage your heat pump’s compressor.

Cleaning around the outdoor condenser unit is also an important part of maintaining your heat pump. Keeping bushes, trees, shrubs, flowers, patio furniture, umbrellas, fallen leaves and anything else away from your heat pump will ensure that it has proper airflow to perform its necessary operations.

Managing Your Heat Pump With A Thermostat

When it comes to your heat pump’s thermostat it’s important to set it properly. Do not set back the heat pump’s thermostat if it causes the backup heating to come on. Most backup heating systems cost much more to operate than your high efficiency heat pump. On top of that if you continuously run the indoor fan your heat pump performance will degrade over time, unless your system uses a high-efficiency, variable-speed fan motor. Operate the system on the “auto” fan setting on the thermostat, to avoid unnecessary wear and tear on the fan motor and components. Consider installing (or have a professional install) a programmable thermostat with multistage functions suitable for a heat pump. Overall, thermostats are an important part of maintaining your heat pump long term.

Maintaining Your Heat Pump – Annual Maintenance

One of the most important things you can do to keep your heat pump running properly and efficiently is to have a professional HVAC technician service your heat pump at least once a year. A Air Conditioner Pro HVAC technician will:

  • Inspect ducts, filters, blower components, and coils for dirt, dust and other things
  • Diagnose and seal duct leakage
  • Verify adequate airflow in all areas
  • Verify correct refrigerant charge in the heat pump
  • Check for refrigerant leaks in many different locations
  • Inspect electric terminals, clean and tighten connections, and apply make necessary repairs
  • Lubricate motors and inspect belts for tightness, and wear and tear
  • Verify electrical controls and ensure that heating is locked out when the thermostat calls for cooling and vice versa
  • Verify correct thermostat operation and replace or upgrade thermostat if necessary

In case you haven’t noticed fall is well under way. You know the signs: colder weather, leaves on the ground, sweaters everywhere, and of course you might think about turning on your heating system. If you have a ductless heat pump, fall is definitely the time to book a ductless heat pump maintenance appointment.

Importance of Ductless Heat Pump Maintenance

Your ductless heat pump is an investment, and as such you want to ensure that it lasts for as long as possible. With proper maintenance and care your ductless heat pump will run well for many years. It’s really that simple. Without proper ductless heat pump maintenance your heat pump can experience breakdowns and actually have a shorter operating life.

Benefits of Ductless Heat Pump Maintenance

There are numerous benefits to the proper care and maintenance of your ductless heat pump.

  • Efficiency: With annual heat pump maintenance your unit will operate as efficiently as possible. Maintenance ensures that your unit uses as little energy as possible to produce heat. The less energy it uses, the lower your energy bills will be, and so you save money each month. The chances are your ductless heat pump will operate for a long time without maintenance and still produce heat, but it will continually become less efficient as it gets older.
  • Reliability: Scheduling an annual heat pump maintenance appointment is the best way to give yourself some peace of mind that your ductless heat pump will operate when you need it to. While it’s not a matter of life and death if your heat pump doesn’t turn on, it’s frustrating and inconvenient to spend good money on a home appliance only to have it breakdown all the time. Proper maintenance will drastically increase the reliability of your ductless heat pump, so it will turn on and work properly when you need it to.

The fall is the best time to take care of HVAC maintenance, including your heat pump. Contact a Air Conditioner Pro HVAC technician today to book an appointment: 647-547-4049.

Affording a home in Toronto and the GTA is no small feat, especially is such a hot market. If you’re one of the lucky ones able to call yourself a homeowner, it might not leave you with very much in the bank for renovations and upgrades. Unfortunately, that means those old homes without central air conditioning will be quite unbearable in the summer months, but there is an affordable solution. Ripping your home apart to install duct work isn’t for everyone, and installing ductless air systems is the next best solution.

Ductless air systems are a great way to cool your home. They’re low maintenance and don’t require much time to install, but most importantly, they are a cost-effective alternative to central air conditioning.

The Benefits Of Ductless Air Systems

Living in Toronto and the GTA isn’t easy, and finding the money to purchase a home is even harder! That’s why it’s important to know your options, especially the ones that save you money. In the case of most homes for sale in the city, their age might leave you to pay for the necessary upgrades – like air conditioning. Central air conditioning can be quite expensive since it requires ventilation to be installed throughout the home. Ductless air systems are much more affordable.

Installation of ductless air systems requires only one indoor unit, one outdoor compressor, and tubing to connect the two. This is very straightforward and easy on your wallet. The one thing to keep in mind though is that ductless air systems focus on a given area of your home only. Once you select the room you wish to keep the coolest, you’d book a professional to handle the installation. To cool other parts of your home, you would need another indoor unit installed. These work best when paired with a home that is properly insulated. The better the insulation, the less energy required to cool that room.

Who Is Qualified To Install Ductless Air Systems?

In a city the size of Toronto and the GTA, you won’t have any shortage of people offering their services in exchange for a reasonable price. Handymen, do-it-yourselfers, and other self-claimed “professionals” might seem like a good idea based on what they charge, but your home is an investment, and you should protect it as one. The right professional can make all the difference in the long-term.

After 30 years of installing and maintaining HVAC systems in Toronto and the GTA, rest assured that Air Conditioner Pro is the right choice. Our experts work hard to be there for our clients when they need us. That’s why we’re available 24/7 by phone. Just contact us at 647-547-4049 to get started or have your questions answered. Let us keep your home cool this summer by installing ductless air systems.

Ductless systems are most commonly used in the summer for air conditioning, but many units also have heating options that can be useful during cooler times of the year. Ductless systems aren’t the ideal solution for heating your home during the cold months of winter, but they are a great way to heat spaces in your house that aren’t fully heated by other heating sources like electric heating or forced air heating.

Ductless Heating In The Fall

As the night’s cool down, but the days are still hot utilizing your ductless air conditioner for both heating and cooling is a great way to maintain home comfort and efficiency. Ductless units have the ability to blow warm air into cool spaces so you don’t notice the difference in temperature during cool fall nights.

Complete ductless systems also offer the same efficiency that they typically do when being used for air conditioning. This means that you can count on them for heating without drastically affecting your energy bill.

Autumn Maintenance

In order to keep your ductless system reliable and running efficiently during the colder months it’s important to take care of it. Simple cleaning of the unit and the filter is typically sufficient on a regular basis to keep your unit working fine, but professional maintenance should be done at least once or twice a year as well. Call and HVAC expert to take care of the maintenance for your ductless system is essential to it working properly and lasting for many years to come.

HVAC professionals can identify problems and make recommendations and repairs as necessary. Overall, there’s no better way to maintain your system.

For most people preparing for the fall means doing back to school shopping, raking leaves, cleaning the gutters, drinking pumpkin spiced lattes and a litany of other things. For every homeowner this list should also include fall air conditioner maintenance.

Key Fall Air Conditioner Maintenance Tips

  • Change Your Air Filter: Changing the air filter is important. A dirty air filter can result in quite a few problems for your air conditioner, the main one being an inability to cool your home. Fast-forward to the first time in the spring you decide to turn on your air conditioner and all you get is warm air. By changing your filter now you can avoid potential problems and allow cool air to circulate throughout your home.
  • Clean It Good: After a full summer of use your air conditioner builds up a lot of dirt and grime. While changing the filter is a good first step it’s also important to give it a good cleaning. Wipe down the inner coils, outer casings, and removing and leaves or other debris that’s inside your unit is a great way to ensure it’s ready for the spring.
  • Scheduled Maintenance: One of the most important things you can do before tucking your air conditioner in for a long winter’s nap is to call a professional technician from Air Conditioner Pro to take a look. Professional air conditioner maintenance is the best way to keep your air conditioner working properly and efficiently. It’s also the best way to find and fix problems while they’re small, so they don’t cost you big time in the spring.
  • Air Conditioner Replacement: If your air conditioner is getting on in years you might need to start thinking about replacing it. One of the best times of the year to purchase a new air conditioner is in the fall when prices are lower. Most homeowners wait until the spring or summer to buy new units and manufacturers know this.

The air conditioner and furnace in your home are important components of your overall HVAC system. If any element of that system needs repairs, maintenance or to be upgraded it’s important to take action. Waiting too long to replace your air conditioner and furnace can result in your entire system working too hard, and ultimately costing you more money than necessary.

When your air conditioner and furnace are operating inefficiently they also face an increased potential of breaking down prematurely, which could happen when you need them most. The easiest way to keep this from happening is to ensure that your air conditioner and furnace are regularly maintained and replaced when your HVAC technician recommends. Working with a company like Air Conditioner Pro means that you’ve got over 30 years of experience working for you, and you can trust that they understand when your components need fixing or replacing.

How Old are Your Air Conditioner and Furnace?

If your air conditioner is over 15 years old and your furnace is over 10 years old then it’s probably time you called Air Conditioner Pro for an inspection and a free estimate on repairs, maintenance or replacement. When replacement is happening it’s also an ideal time to assess your duct system to see if it can be reconfigured to function better and increase the efficiency of your system.

Air conditioner and furnace technology has come a long way over the past 10-15 years, so if you’re running an older unit that’s coming close to its due date it’s the perfect time to think about replacing it. Old units might be reliable, but they can also be very inefficient and be costing you lots of extra money on your energy bill. Newer units are rated according to a SEER rating which indicated how efficient they are. The higher the rating the greater your energy savings will be.

Finally, one of the main indications that you need a new air conditioner or furnace is if your system is in a constant need of repairs. A new air conditioner and furnace can save you up to 25% on your energy bills, so waiting to replace them is only costing you more.

Panasonic ductless air conditioners are highly respected in the ductless air conditioning industry. Their products are well-built, provide a number of different features, and are known for being very energy-efficient. All available Panasonic ductless air conditioners sold in Canada have heat pumps, adhere to climate testing requirements, and lots of standard features that aren’t offered with many models carried by other brands.

In addition to their excellent functionality and efficiency they also offer some of the most stylish models on the market. They’re sleek, stylish, and offer curved glossy surfaces that provide the lustre of high-end electronics.

Panasonic ductless air conditioners are also known for being whisper-quiet, which is important especially since they all have heat pumps.

Panasonic Air Conditioner Features

Panasonic units utilize inverter technology, which means they use less energy while providing excellent levels of comfort. Inverter technology allows the unit to adjust the speed of the compressor motor depending on the demand placed on the unit. When a unit is merely maintaining a temperature maximum power isn’t needed so it operates at a lower capacity, saving you money on your energy bill.

All Panasonic units include a 3M anti-microbial filter that ensures more than 99% of allergens and other airborne particles are captured.

These ductless air conditioners are ideal for bedrooms, offices, and pretty much anywhere else noise can be a problem as they’re incredibly quiet. Every unit has a quiet button that instantly reduces the noise level by 5 dB.

Panasonic Ductless Air Conditioners Human Detection

ECONAVI is the human detection technology that Panasonic has included in some of its ductless air units. This technology allows the unit to understand when humans are in the room so it can adjust the temperature accordingly. If it sees that no one has been in the room for an extended period of time it switches to an energy-saving setting. Essentially, this feature helps the unit save you money.

Toronto is finally getting some relief from the heat with more mild temperatures. Over the past few weeks we saw some temperature records get broken and people do everything possible to beat the heat. Did your air conditioner let you down over the past few weeks when you needed it most? If your air conditioner wasn’t working well or barely kept your home cool during the recent heat wave then it might be time to do some investigating to determine if it’s time for a new air conditioner or not.

How Old is Your Air Conditioner?

The typical lifespan of central air conditioners is 15 – 20 years, which is heavily dependent on the maintenance and repairs that take place over the years. At a certain point you’ll notice a drop in the efficiency on your energy bills and as the repairs bills start to pile up a new air conditioner typically makes the most sense financially.

Here are some other signs you might need a new air conditioner:

  • Thermostat problems
  • Poor air flow
  • Substandard performance
  • Strange sounds
  • Strange odors

One of the best ways to find out if you need a new air conditioning system or if you maintenance and repairs are enough is to talk to a professional and reputable HVAC company like Air Conditioner Pro. Sometimes there’s just a bad part in your air conditioner and other times there are major problems with the compressor system. It’s hard to know unless you’re an expert and have encountered lots of problems over the course of an HVAC career.

A New Air Conditioner

HVAC technology has come a long way over the past few years and as a result air conditioners are running more efficient than ever before. This results in great air flow, cost savings and efficiency, as well as reduced maintenance and repairs. Newer systems are also much quieter than older ones.

For some sleeping is no problem, for others it’s frustrating the arduous. Before you rush to the doctor to get a prescription for sleeping pills consider what your ideal sleep temperature is. Finding your ideal sleep temperature can be one of the best sleep aids out there, so setting the thermostat in your home or bedroom to accommodate that can be a game changer.

Typically, the ideal temperature for sleeping ranges between 68 and 72 degrees, which is a little cooler than you might want throughout the day. In the summer sleeping can be a challenge, especially if you don’t have air conditioning. Essentially, you can always pull up your blankets if you’re too cold, but there are only so many items of clothing you can strip off if you get too hot.

Achieve Your Sleep Temperature With Air Conditioning

The easiest way to get your bedroom the right sleep temperature in the summer is with air conditioning. Whether you have a window unit, a ductless air conditioner, or a central air conditioning system it’s important to adjust the temperature properly.

Proper maintenance of your air conditioning system is also essential for it to accurately achieve your sleep temperature. Regularly changing the filter and having regular maintenance scheduled with a professional HVAC technician are the best way to keep it working efficiently and properly. The best time to take care of your HVAC and air conditioner maintenance is in the spring, before you place heavy usage and loads on your air conditioning system. You filter should be checked at least once a month, especially in the summer when it can be dustier than usual in your home.

Fans For Your Sleep Temperature

Ceiling fans can also help keep your bedroom cool. In the summer ensure that they’re rotating in a counterclockwise direction in order to produce a cooling effect. Additionally, floor and desk fans should be rotating and not just pointed directly at one place. This circulates the air in your bedroom even more and evenly distributes cooling throughout.

Overall, a properly maintained air conditioner is the best way to achieve a nice cool sleeping temperature. For more information about air conditioner maintenance, installation or repairs contact Air Conditioner Pro today: 647-547-4049

In many business categories things have been done a certain way for a long time and implementing change is often very difficult. One exception to that is the HVAC industry where ductless air conditioner technology evolved quickly and was incorporated just the same. These systems are continually evolving and at the forefront of the industry and the basis for which many electronics companies have been developed.

While system design remains quite basic with a compressor, condenser, expansion device, and evaporator, seeing the inside of a unit illustrates its complex systems. There are numerous components and circuits that have all been implemented over the years to increase efficiency and reliability. All of these technological advances have not driven up the price significantly, so these units are still an affordable solution. However, these advances have allowed these units to be used for a vast array of applications in commercial and residential spaces.

Originally, the ductless air conditioner was intended to serve as a replacement for window air conditioner unit, which it does, but it also does much more. Now with the ability to create large zoned systems that can cool large spaces and entire home and offices, ductless air conditioner technology has few limitations.

Key Technological Ductless Air Conditioner Advances

  • The Standard compressor switched to variable-frequency drive (VFD) “inverter” compressors. This allows them to deliver exceptional operational performance, maintain a specific comfort level and ensure the units remain reliable.
  • Condensing fan motors changed from direct-drive to VFD inverter-types. This significantly improved the performance of the units.
  • Evaporator unit fan motors evolved from direct-drive to DC- or ECM-type. This change minimized the amount of noise that units would make, as well as reduced their power consumption.
  • Heat exchanger technology evolved to include intricate high-performance coil designs. These coils have less surface area, but have the ability to maximize heat transfer to ensure system capacity.
  • Systems now have their own control systems, allowing consumers fully integrated units that work together. This means condensing units, evaporator, zone control, and centralized controllers.
  • Self-diagnostic functions help consumers and technicians solve system issues on the spot.
  • Systems now meet the growing needs and requirements to have a healthier and cleaner air filtering.

You might think that you don’t need air conditioning maintenance because your air conditioner seems to be running fine. This might be true, but it might also be the reason your air conditioner fails or worse catches fire. Recently, an air conditioning unit at a St. Louis area school and a hotel in Eureka caught fire and forced the evacuation of the entire campus.

The building is located on the University of Central Missouri campus. Fire crews reported that the air conditioning unit caught fire due to a mechanical issue. The unit caught fire at 5:45 in the morning and luckily there were no injuries reported.

When an air conditioner has a mechanical issue it normally just shuts down or ceases to work, but there is a chance that a small fire can occur due to the heat, speed or rotation, and electrical components in the units.

Improper maintenance and repairs are often the easiest way to prevent an incident like this from occurring. Whether you’re running a commercial air conditioner or a residential air conditioner it’s important to schedule regular maintenance. Finding a reputable and experienced air conditioning maintenance company is the best way to ensure your air conditioning units are running efficiently and safely.

Air Conditioning Maintenance: Efficiency & Safety

Typically, all it takes is an annual or bi-annual air conditioning maintenance visit to ensure your air conditioner is running efficiently and safely. Surprisingly, most people don’t know that simple maintenance can drastically improve the efficiency of your air conditioner and in doing so saves you money on your energy bill. Additionally, your air conditioner will be running safer, which means you won’t be on the hook for replacement or big repair costs if it were to catch fire or just stop working.

You’ve got questions about air conditioners and we’ve got answers. We’ve compiled some of the most common questions we get about air conditioners into this one useful blog. Ever wonder how air conditioners work? Find out how they work and much more in our question and answer segment for our customers in Toronto, York Region and all over the GTA.

Q: How Do Air Conditioners Produce Cool Air?

A: Air conditioners are responsible for two primary things in your home or office. They remove heat and remove moisture. In Toronto and the rest of the GTA there are times in the summer where the heat is dry and others where it’s very moist. Your air conditioner needs to perform these two jobs well to ensure your home is comfortable and healthy. So how exactly do air conditioners work? As warm air is drawn into the air conditioners filter it passes over a very cold coil where the heat and moisture are absorbed. This cool dry air is then re-circulated through your home and the process continues until your indoor space achieves the temperature you’ve set on your thermostat.

Q: Is It Cheaper To Run The Fan On Air Conditioners Or Ceiling Fans?

A: Ceiling fans will consume less energy and unless your air conditioner’s fan has an electronic filter that requires a continuous stream of air it can be turned to auto. This ensures it only engages when your air conditioner turns on. The benefit to running your HVAC system’s fan all the time is that it also filters the dust and pollen out of the air in your home, which means the air will be cleaner.

Q: Does Closing Vents To Redirect Air Save Me Money?

A: The short answer is no. The long answer is that if installed properly your vent system is designed to ensure the proper flow of air throughout your home. Closing vents can result in a poor balance of pressure and make your system actually work harder and cost you more. This can also lead to duct leakage as pressure increases.

Q: Is It Better When Air Conditioners Run For Long Periods Or Short Bursts At A Time?

A: Most air conditioners won’t be able to effectively remove very much moisture from the air in your home if they only run for short bursts. If your air conditioner is only running for short bursts you’ll be getting cool air and if there isn’t much moisture then it may be more efficient depending on your air conditioner make and model.

Q: Should Interior Doors Be Open Or Closed When The Air Conditioner Is On?

A: Air conditioners and HVAC systems are designed to move air through your home in a specific way, so if you have doors impeding that movement they are restricting the airflow and disrupting the system.

Are you a senior citizen or do you live with seniors? If you answer is yes then it’s time to start thinking about the effects of the muggy heat of summer on breathing easily. Central air installation is one of the best and healthiest ways to combat the muggy heat that comes along with summers in Toronto and the rest of the GTA. Many seniors have health problems that involve the lungs, heart and other components of the respiratory system, which can all be affected by the indoor air quality of their homes and living spaces.

For home without air conditioning central air installation is an affordable and easy way to improve and maintain high-quality indoor air quality through the summer and warmer months of the year. Air conditioners regulate the temperature of a room or home and also remove the moisture from the air that can make it difficult to breathe, especially when warm or hot. Extreme heat is also dangerous for seniors as it can lead to dehydration, heat stroke, laboured breathing and a number of other dangerous symptoms that can all lead to 911 call.

Fight Summer Heat With Central Air Installation

Air conditioners are one of the best defences against health related issues during the hot months of summer, particularly for vulnerable individuals. If you don’t currently have an air conditioner then consider central air installation. It easily integrates with your home’s existing ductwork and provides cool regulated air to all the rooms with vents. Central air installation is fast and affordable and there is little maintenance for central air conditioners.

If you don’t need central air installation services, but have an existing central air conditioner then it’s important to ensure its working well and properly maintained. Air Conditioner Pro has been providing central air installation and central air maintenance services in Toronto, York Region and the rest of the GTA for over 30 years. We have the knowledge and experience to ensure your air conditioning system is ready when summer heat waves hit, and if there happens to be a breakdown we’re there fast and ready to get the cold air pumping again.

When our air conditioning experts talk about taking control of your home comfort they’re not referring to a wrestling match with a group of throw pillows. As much fun as that would be, they’re referring to ensuring that your air conditioning system is working as hard as possible to ensure your home comfort this spring and summer.

If you use a forced air heating and cooling system in your home you’re typically heating and cooling your entire home or office space at one specific temperature. While this might beneficial if every inch of space is being used all the time it’s not a good use of energy and money if you have lots of empty rooms for most of the day. You wouldn’t flip one master switch every morning to turn on all the lights in your home would you? So why does one master switch turn on the cooling or heat for your entire home at the same temperature?

Control Home Comfort With a Zone Control System

A zone control system allows you to effectively take control of your home’s air conditioning and heating systems. Zone control systems allow you to distribute cooling and heating throughout your home in a more efficient way. A zone control system allows you to direct cool or warm air to places where it’s needed and direct less to the places it isn’t. So, room by room or zone by zone you’ll have more control over the temperature.

Controlling home comfort with a zone control system is one upgrade to your HVAC system that will really pay off. Here are some of the benefits of installing a zone control system:

  • Improved Comfort: Unless you live alone and want your home one single temperature all the time a zone control system can improve home comfort for everyone in your house. Generally, everyone like the temperature to be slightly different and with a zone control system you’ll have the ability to make everyone happy in terms of cooling and heating.
  • Save Money on Your Energy Bills: If improving your home comfort isn’t enough to make you want a zone control system then how about reducing the cost of your energy bills? Zone control systems provide a more efficient environment for your furnace and air conditioner so they only work when they have to. This is how zone control systems reduce the amount of energy your HVAC appliances need to work, and by saving energy you’re not only saving money but also the environment.
  • Less Wear & Tear: Overall, if your air conditioner and furnace are operating more efficiently and directing cool and warm air more efficiently throughout your home or office they are in fact working better. As a result the wear and tear they experience will be far less than if they were simply running all the time to maintain the same temperature through an entire home or office. Over time wear and tear can be costly expenses and even lead to replacement as appliance break down. In addition to a zone control system it’s also important to ensure your air conditioner and furnace receive routing maintenance. Working with a professional and reputable HVAC company like Air Conditioner Pro to ensure your air conditioner and furnace are running efficiently is important to the longevity of your appliances.

Your air conditioner and furnace are two of the most important pieces of your home comfort puzzle, so maintaining them is essential. Installing a zone comfort system is one of the best things you can do to upgrade your home cooling and heating systems.

Spring in Toronto and the GTA is finally here and it looks like the weather will finally stay to reflect it, at least in the short-term. With spring comes the feeling of renewal, sunlight that last later into the evening, and also the urge to thoroughly clean your home. You’ve been stuck inside all winter long, so now it’s finally time to open the windows and think about your indoor air quality.

Indoor Air Quality: Toronto & Canada

It’s shocking to hear that Canadians spend almost 90% of their time inside, either at home, work or other environments. As a result we’re not overly exposed to the fresh outdoor air that our governments have fought so hard to achieve over the years. Even in Toronto, Canada’s largest city, smog days have all but disappeared and air quality is at an all-time high. Regardless of the improving air quality around us we still spend the majority of out time inside, which is why it’s important to consider what our indoor air quality is like, especially at home where we sleep.

There are a number of different things that can affect the indoor air quality of your home. They can typically be broken down into:

  • Biological Pollutants: These are living organisms that have the ability to pollute the air in your home. They include things like mould, bacteria, and dust mites.
  • Chemical Pollutants: These are gasses and other airborne particles that come from appliances throughout your home that rely on combustion, tobacco products, personal care products, building materials, and other household cleaners.

These pollutants are evident in every home, but the concentration of them is what really matters. Homes that are air tight and don’t have great ventilation are at the highest risk of poor indoor air quality.

Luckily there are numerous ways to combat poor indoor air quality and ensure the air you and your family are breathing is healthy. So while you’re taking care of all the spring cleaning you typically do, like ridding your closet of old clothes, trashing old shoes, and cleaning in places you don’t normally clean, it’s important that you don’t overlook cleaning the air in your home too.

Cleaning The Air In Your Home

Cleaning the air doesn’t mean that you need to spray odour-killing chemicals or Febreeze all over your house, this will actually make it worse! Here are a few tried a true ways to clean the air in your home without ruining your summer vacation budget.

  • Change Your Furnace Filter: To some people this is something they do regularly to ensure the efficiency of their furnace and air conditioner, but to some they might not even know that their furnace had a filter. This filter is an important part of your home’s HVAC system and essentially filters all the air in circulation throughout your home. Allowing it to get too dirty can result in poor air quality as it fails to filter any particles, but also reduces the efficiency of your furnace and air conditioner as they now have to work harder to warm and cool your home.
  • Vacuuming & Dusting: Few people enjoy this type of cleaning and it often get’s put off until later, whenever that is. Properly vacuuming and dusting your home right after changing your furnace filter is a great way to blitz the particles that are floating in the air. If you don’t feel like cleaning there are affordable cleaning services in Toronto that can save you lots of cleaning time.
  • No Smoking: One of the worst pollutants to invade your home is tobacco smoke. Simply stepping outside for your next smoke can eliminate a whole litany of chemicals from the air in your home.
  • Fuel-Burning Appliances: Depending on the types of appliances you have your furnace, water heater, and stove might all burn natural gas to work properly. Having these appliances inspected on an annual basis and properly maintained is essential to ensure they aren’t negatively impacting the air quality in your home. Regular maintenance appointments are very affordable and also ensure the efficiency of your appliances, so you’ll save money on your energy bills too.
  • Proper Ventilation: Make sure that places like basements and bathrooms that have higher amounts of moisture are properly ventilated. This helps reduce the risk of mould growth, which can easily become airborne and cause respiratory problems.
  • Garage Etiquette: If you have a garage that’s attached to your home don’t idle your car or other gas-powered equipment inside, even with the door open. Carbon monoxide and other gasses can build up and remain in the air in your garage, which easily transfers to your home when the connecting door is opened.
  • Painting: Even though many newer types of paint don’t produce fumes it’s still a good idea to paint with the windows open. Also, once you’re finished painting it’s important not to store paints, varnishes, and other solvents inside your home.

Many ways to improve the air quality in your home might seem like common sense, but it isn’t something that people think about all the time. Slight changes to your daily routine or cleaning and home maintenance habits can ensure that you and you family have clean and refreshing air to breath when you’re not outside enjoying the warm summer sun.
