Preparing Your Air Conditioner for the Summer


Summers in Ontario are often hot and can be miserable if you don’t have a properly working HVAC unit. However, for efficient and reliable HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, there are a few measures you can take to keep your air conditioner ready for the hot months. Below are a few at-home HVAC maintenance measures that can help keep your home comfortable and cool during the summer.

Filter Replacement
Cleaning and replacing filters is one of the involving, yet essential maintenance tasks that a homeowner can do to their air conditioner. Filters often become clogged with dirt and dust after continued use, which can restrict the flow of air. So, it is wise to inspect your air conditioner’s filter before the hot months get underway to ensure efficiency. It may be necessary to change the filter more often, depending on factors such as pets, allergies, and the type of HVAC unit.

Schedule for AC Tune-Up
Scheduling HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area is by far the surest way to keep your AC at its peak performance. During the inspection, your AC professional will look at all the components of your cooling system to ensure everything is just fine ahead of the summer. Regular tune-ups allow a technician to spot any minor repair before it develops into a catastrophe.

Why Is It Important to Prepare Your Air Conditioner for Summer
Preparing your air conditioner for the summer can help keep your unit at its optimal performance. Also, spring maintenance ensures that the AC is properly lubricated and clean after the harsh winter months. Preparation can also help prevent breakdowns, which are common during the scorching summer heat. Preparing your AC for the summer will help keep your home comfortably by eliminating any built-up dust and unclogging air filters.

Consequences of Not Preparing Your AC for Summer
Neglecting the maintenance of your AC unit ahead of summer can result in costly problems. Having a faulty AC during the summer can lead to a chain of mechanical issues, including discomfort, downtime, declined property value, high humidity, and reduced rental income. So, it would help if you were proactive so that you save money and time and keep your AC at peak performance.

  • 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.

FAQ

  • 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”.

  • 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
    - Available Hot water but No Heat

  • 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
     
  • 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.  

  • 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.
