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.

Performing proper maintenance and repairs on your air conditioner, furnace and other components of your HVAC system is an essential part of saving energy around the house. One thing people often overlook in terms of saving energy and money is through their water bills. Water conservation is important not only to your household bottom line, but also to the environment. There are lots of easy ways to reduce your water usage around the house, which not only saves money, but energy and water.

Saving Energy. Saving Water.

Reducing water usage is something that everyone can and should take part in. Here are some great ways to save water around the house:

  • Toilets: Above and beyond any other appliance or component, toilets use the most water in your home. This means they also waste the most water in your home. Low flow toilets can save on average 20% of the water of an average residential toilet. Dual flush toilets are also very popular in terms of design and water-saving capabilities. Overall, finding ways to flush your toilet less is one of the most effective ways you and your family can save water and reduce your water usage footprint.
  • Showering: Shower is much more efficient in terms of water-savings than taking baths, depending on how long you’re in the shower of course. Showering on the whole is an easy place to save water. Low flow shower heads use to offer little to no pressure and people were turned off by them as they couldn’t effectively rinse off. New low-flow shower heads have changed dramatically and provide much better pressure and enjoyment, while still saving water. Low flow shower heads can save up to 7.5 litres or 2 gallons of water each minute.
  • Taps & Faucets: changing bathroom habits when it comes to brushing your teeth is as easy way to save water. Running the tap for a long period of time while water isn’t being used is simply wasteful. While hand-washing is an important part of our society, ensuring that it’s done efficiently and quickly in order to save water is important to saving energy as well.
  • Simply use Less Water: This point boils down to wants versus needs in terms of saving energy through water usage. Watering your grass and washing your car all the time might not be necessary, but results in a pleasing aesthetic. Find ways in your daily life to use less water and you’ll notice a difference on your energy bills.

These four tips are a good start to minimize your water usage and help you in saving energy around the house. For more information about saving energy through water usage or in any aspect of your HVAC system contact Air Conditioner Pro today: 647-547-4049
