Fall HVAC Tips

You need to ensure your HVAC system is running well during the fall. If you would want more comfort during the long cold days, your system should be in good working condition. Are you still in doubt whether you need fall HVAC maintenance services? There are numerous benefits. 

First, it is a way of keeping things clean and clear. Note that a lot of dirt may have accumulated in your equipment during the summer. Fall offers an opportunity to deal with this mess by getting rid of the dust and any other debris. In some cases, the nearby bushes may grow, and the leaves may get stuck in the unit’s surface, which results in reduced airflow. Through maintenance, you can clear the bushes and ensure the system is working efficiently. Another benefit of regular maintenance during the season is that you will enjoy better indoor air quality. Here are some HVAC services you should consider:

Cleaning the Vents
Dust tends to accumulate in an HVAC system during the summer. Therefore, take the time to check the vents for any debris. This is a crucial maintenance task as even a small amount of dust can significantly reduce your unit's efficiency. If that happens, you will notice increased monthly bills.

Checking the Thermostat
The leaves that fall during autumn may be beautiful, but they can be disastrous for your unit. Check the thermostat to confirm that the equipment is not being overworked. If it shows accurate temperature readings, then it’s in good working condition. If you have a programmable thermostat, check the settings and program it according to the current weather.

Get New Air Filters
The air filters in your unit should be cleaned and replaced regularly. If you skipped this maintenance task, the fall is the ideal time to get back on track. Depending on certain factors within your home, experts recommend replacing your air filters every 30 to 90 days.

Cleaning the Condensation Drain Line
This part of your HVAC system helps to drain moisture away through PVC piping. Ensure the piping is always clear of clogging to prevent water overflow inside your property. If the condensation line is cleared, you will not need to worry about drip pan overflow.

Replace the Entire System
If you seek the above HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area but still experience problems, you should consider investing in a new system. During the season, the weather will become colder, and your unit will need to work harder to heat your home. Generally, this is a great time to replace your equipment.

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Most common Boiler Issues

    - Boiler fails to ignite
    - Low pressure
    - Strange Noises
    - Boiler is not responding to the thermostat
    - Cold Radiators
    - Boiler leaking or dripping
    - Boiler cycling very fast

  • 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 are mini-split advantages?

    Just as the name implies, a “mini-split” system is a “split system” however available in smaller capacities, for single room to whole house conditioning. Mini-split systems may range from as small as 9,000 BTUh per hour, comparable to say, a small window AC unit, for individual room use, up to 4 and 5 ton capacities for “Room By Room” (also known as “Zoning”) and whole house conditioning. With near universal design, mini-splits are “heat pumps” which provide both heating and cooling for a home. Here are key advantages when compared to traditional split systems:

    Efficiency- Mini-splits are highly engineered systems which offer attractive operating efficiencies, in many instances, eligible for utility company rebates.
    Heat Pump- Most mini-split systems are heat pumps, providing year-round comfort.
    Solar friendly- Due to very low power requirements, mini-splits are an ideal complement to “Net Zero Energy” homes, or any home using renewable power.
    Carbon footprint- Mini-splits are 100% electric, with zero operating emissions of any type.
    Zoning- Most mini-split manufacturers offer systems capable of room-by-room “zoning”, to account for peak demands of a room based upon construction type, exposure orientation and usage.
    Variable capacity- Mini-splits are typically DC inverter driven. That is, a variable speed compressor which modulates in proportion to instantaneous demand. Most conventional split systems, by comparison, operate with an ON-OFF strategy. (Would you use an ON-OFF switch as the accelerator in your vehicle?)
    Location, Location, Location!- Mini-split outdoor units are compact; they can be located far away from noise-sensitive areas, such as bedrooms and home offices. Mini-split indoor units have the ability to be installed where conventional systems cannot.
    They’re perfect for additions and remodels where access to current HVAC system is difficult to access.
    Modern mini-split systems are remarkably quiet; in fact, many times their operation is unnoticed by the end user.

  • 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.
