HVAC Related New Year's Resolutions

HVAC Related New Year's Resolutions

With 2021 still in its absolute earliest stages, you still have the time to make a resolution and to finally stay with that promise to yourself. This year, with more time spent at home than before, consider resolutions related to your home's HVAC system.

1. Schedule regular maintenance

Skipping over regular maintenance means that you're likely not using your home's system at its maximum potential. In fact, you might be wasting money because you've been avoiding regular maintenance. Even more frightening is the fact that skipping over necessary maintenance can lead to dangerous issues. In 2021, make sure calling A-Plus Quality for HVAC maintence in the Greater Toronto Area is at the top of your list. 

2. Use the scheduling features on your thermostat

When you feel cold, you likely turn on the heat. However, once you start to feel warm, you may shut the system right off. Instead of constantly going back and forth, use the scheduling features on your thermostat. For example, you can schedule the heat to go down overnight when you are tucked into bed or when you’re not home. Same goes for the summer time; you can program the air conditioner to blast even more cool air after you come home from long days at the beach. Using the scheduling features on your thermostat will help to make your home more comfortable.

3. Choose energy-efficient options

Doing what's right for the environment is important, and selecting energy-efficient options allows you to make this change in your life. An old HVAC system, for example, might use up an unnecessary amount of energy. This is not only extremely inefficient, but it is also very costly. Calling A-Plus Quality for HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area with the goal of updating your system can lead to a more environmentally smart and less expensive option. If your HVAC system is simply outdated it may be time for a replacement; call A-Plus Quality HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area.

Cooling and heating your home are two important facets of life. Now, you can make some resolutions related to doing so in a better way. This year remember when you schedule your doctor and dental check ups, make sure you are also scheduling your HVAC service appointments. Keep your HVAC system in tip top shape for 2021 and the years to come with HVAC services from A-Plus Quality located in the Greater Toronto Area. Contact us today to book an appointment!

FAQ

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • 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
     
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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
