Tips on Improving HVAC Efficiency


Lowering bills is a goal for every responsible homeowner. No one wants to waste cool air without knowing it and have to repair their HVAC system every few years. Keep on reading to learn some tips on how to improve your HVAC unit's efficiency.

Seal Openings
Sometimes, the problem involves the house itself and not your HVAC system. Your HVAC system doesn't work properly if the cool air is flowing out of open windows or holes in the walls. Seal every opening that is allowing the leakage of air, except for the A/C vents. Close the windows before turning on the air conditioner. 

Check the Thermostat
You may need to upgrade the thermostat if it's not working properly. You'll notice this if the dial seems stuck on one temperature and the air never gets cooler. A smart thermostat that switches on and off automatically will save your household hundreds of dollars every year.

Install Zoning Control
Install a zoning system that cools specific rooms and sections of the house. Save electricity when you switch off the A/C in rooms that are presently unoccupied. You'll find the installation of a zoning system as among the most popular HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area.

Benefits of Improving HVAC Efficiency

Energy Savings
Cutting down on your electricity bills by 20-50% is the biggest benefit of improving HVAC efficiency. As you keep your home cool, be smart and economical.

Longer Lasting HVAC System
With regular repairs and maintenance, your heating or cooling system will last for several decades. An action as simple as keeping the windows open while the A/C is running is a huge waste of energy. Your HVAC system is being overworked and will break down more easily. Improving its efficiency is necessary to prolong its lifespan for as long as possible.

Being smarter about the way that you handle your heating and cooling systems is not hard to do. It takes some months of practice, but it's easy to reduce the energy costs in your home.

  • On July 8, 2021, A Plus Quality Inc installed a boiler in my house. The company did a great job. The manager, Shak, came to give me a very detailed estimate. He also followed up every steps. He had a good team to come to do the installation. After installation, they check and explaining to me everything before leaving. I am really impressed. Besides, the office manager, Sandi, was very helpful too. I would like to recommend A Plus Quality Inc to my friends.

  • The boiler at our church died in January 2021 and we urgently needed a replacement. A Plus Quality responded right away. Despite the pandemic they managed to order all required parts and install them in about a week (it was a big job). The team was really professional and the price was reasonable. I would highly recommend A Plus Quality.

FAQ

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
     
  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.
