Types of AC Systems We Handle

As a property owner, you rely on your AC to keep your home or business operating reliably and comfortably in Ottawa’s warm summer months. When your cooling system is on the fritz, you need an experienced team you can depend on to restore the functionality of your residential or commercial property. That’s where Anchor Home Comfort comes in! 

Our AC experts use industry-leading tools and techniques to handle a variety of different cooling systems, such as: 

  • Central AC units: Central air conditioners use a system of ducts to distribute cool air evenly throughout your home, making them a great option for whole-house cooling. These traditional AC units are popular for their energy efficiency and ability to distribute consistent temperatures throughout your home or business, making them an excellent option for larger properties. 
  • Ductless air conditioning: These versatile units are great for homes without existing ducts or smaller properties that lack the space for traditional ductwork. These dual-purpose systems offer zoned cooling, providing property owners with customized temperature control in individual rooms. Ductless mini-split systems are easy to install and highly energy efficient, making them a great choice for properties with add-ons like sheds, garages, or studios. 
  • Heat pumps: Heat pumps provide a two-in-one solution for both heating and cooling needs. They extract heat from outside air to cool your home in the summer and can reverse the process to provide warmth in winter. These systems are energy-efficient and eco-friendly, making them an excellent choice for many property owners. 
  • Hybrid air conditioners: These innovative systems combine a traditional gas furnace with an electric air-source heat pump, delivering energy-efficient heating and cooling throughout your home or business. They automatically choose the most cost-effective operating mode based on the outside temperature, making them a smart choice for Ottawa’s fluctuating temperatures.

My AC Is Blowing Warm Air. What’s the Problem?

Dealing with a faulty AC unit can be frustrating and confusing for many property owners. If your cooling unit is blowing hot or lukewarm air, contacting a licensed professional is the best way to restore your indoor comfort, avoid surging utility bills, and restore functionality to your residential or commercial space. 

Some common causes of an AC system blowing warm air include:

  • Dirty or clogged air filters
  • Low refrigerant levels
  • Faulty thermostats
  • Refrigerant leaks
  • Frozen evaporator coils 

Not sure if you need professional AC repair or replacement? No problem! Our team is fully equipped with the latest tools and diagnostic technologies to get to the root of your AC troubles and recommend durable, cost-effective cooling solutions designed to last. 

Should I Invest in Regular AC Maintenance? 

Regular AC maintenance is key to addressing potential issues early and protecting the longevity of your cooling system. Fortunately, our experts specialize in comprehensive AC maintenance tailored to your unique residential or commercial needs. Our technicians are experienced in providing comprehensive AC tune-ups to keep your unit running at peak performance. Don’t wait until you have an AC emergency to contact our cooling experts! With our preventative maintenance plans, property owners can save time, money, and hassle on future repairs and premature replacements. 

How Often Should I Service My AC Unit in Ottawa? 

As a property owner, keeping up with seasonal tune-ups is an important part of maintaining the longevity and efficiency of your cooling system. It’s best to have your residential AC unit serviced at least once a year to ensure optimal performance, ideally before the cooling season begins. Commercial properties may require more frequent servicing due to heavier usage. We recommend servicing your commercial AC system at least twice a year to prevent unexpected breakdowns and keep your air conditioning running smoothly.

Tips for Maintaining Your AC Unit in Ottawa’s Climate

In Ottawa’s warm, humid summers, it’s important to stay proactive in maintaining your AC unit. Scheduling seasonal tune-ups for your air conditioning is essential to ensure the longevity and integrity of your whole HVAC system, giving you peace of mind that your investment and comfort are protected. 

Here are some tips for maintaining your AC system in Canada’s Capital Region:   

  • Replace or clean air filters regularly: Ottawa’s high pollen count in the spring and summertime can clog filters quickly, reducing efficiency and air quality.
  • Check and clean the condenser coils: Humidity levels can cause dirt and debris to build up in the coils, making it harder for the AC unit to cool your home.
  • Inspect the refrigerant levels: In Ottawa’s hot and sticky summers, it’s important to make sure your AC system has the correct amount of refrigerant to operate efficiently.  
  • Clear the area around the outdoor unit: Remove leaves, twigs, and other debris that may accumulate around your AC unit to prevent obstructions to its airflow and maximize energy efficiency.
  • Seal and insulate ducts properly: Sealing and insulating your ducts can help improve your system’s cooling performance by ensuring cool air stays in your home.
  • Check and calibrate the thermostat: A properly functioning thermostat is key for optimal AC performance. Upgrading to a smart thermostat can also be a wise investment to improve energy efficiency in their home or business. 
  • Invest in professional maintenance: Having your AC annually inspected by a certified technician can help identify potential issues before they lead to costly damage or repairs. Our team specializes in top-notch maintenance services to help you prepare for peak summer heat!

Providing you With Answers & Solutions
  • How are homes heated in Ottawa and when should the heat be turned on?

    The majority of homes in Canada are heated by furnaces. Of these, some use oil or propane-based furnaces, but most are natural gas-based. While most homes are heated by some type of furnace, you may find other heating methods in local homes, such as baseboard heaters, solar heaters, heat pumps, and boilers.

    As a homeowner, it’s up to you to decide when to turn your heat on. In essence, when your home’s temperature is uncomfortably cold, that’s likely a sign to switch your heating system on. According to the World Health Organization, the ideal indoor temperature is between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius.

  • How much does HVAC cost in Ottawa?

    This question is impossible to answer as there are many different HVAC services available to local residents. For example, the cost of installing a central air conditioner isn’t the same as repairing a furnace or heat pump. The type of service – whether it be an installation, repair, replacement, or maintenance – as well as the type of unit (heat pump, furnace, air conditioner, boiler, etc.) are two factors that will determine the cost.

    Other factors that will impact how much your HVAC service costs include the size of your home, the age and condition of your home’s existing ductwork (if applicable), and the extent of the problem, in the case of repairs. The best way to find out the price of an HVAC service in Ottawa, Ontario is to request a quote from Anchor Home Comfort.

  • How do I know if my HVAC system is working properly?

    If you notice any of the following signs, it might signal a problem: uneven temperatures, problems with humidity levels, a rattling or buzzing sound coming from your furnace, or an unexplained spike in your utility bills.

    If these signs sound familiar, or you want peace of mind knowing your HVAC system is working as it should, contact Anchor Home Comfort. We will send a certified technician to inspect your HVAC system. We even have a 24/7 emergency line, and there is no extra charge for emergency, weekend, holiday, or after-hours service calls.
