What is an HVAC system?

HVAC stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. The acronym refers to a series of systems that cool, heat, and move air between indoor and outdoor areas in buildings, such as homes. HVAC systems of all kinds are found in Arnprior homes, from furnaces and air conditioners to heat pumps and water heaters. Regardless of the type of unit you have in your Arnprior home, the purpose of an HVAC system is the same: to give homeowners more control over the temperature, airflow, and humidity levels in their homes. Ultimately, HVAC systems provide indoor comfort and for this reason, are instrumental to the everyday lives of Canadians.

what should I look for in an hVAC system?

We recommend judging potential HVAC systems on the following criteria: energy efficiency, capacity, maintenance requirements, noise level, cost, and thermostat compatibility. Comparing candidates using these criteria will help you find a unit that suits your home and personal preferences. For example, if minimizing your energy consumption is a priority, then you may look for an HVAC system with a SEER rating of 15 or above (these units tend to be the most energy-efficient). On the other hand, if noise level is a concern, you may choose a unit that operates silently. Budget is also a priority for many people. It’s best to determine a budget you’re comfortable with before shopping. If possible, don’t choose a unit solely for its price, as cheap units tend to be less energy-efficient which may cost you more money in the future.

Overall, it’s up to each individual Arnprior homeowner to decide which HVAC system is right for them. But if you’re having trouble deciding and would like a professional opinion, call Anchor Home Comfort. One of our experienced HVAC technicians can provide their opinion on the best HVAC system for your needs.

How do i know if my HVAC system is working properly?

One way to tell if your HVAC system is working properly is to book a maintenance appointment. Anchor Home Comfort offers maintenance services for all types of HVAC units. Experts recommend having your system serviced annually to prevent long-term problems and ensure optimal performance. Other benefits of regular maintenance are that these tune-ups can prolong the life of your HVAC system and increase its energy efficiency (thereby saving you money on your monthly energy bills). Therefore, one of the best ways to know if your HVAC system is working properly is to have it assessed by one of Anchor Home Comfort’s fully licensed and certified technicians during a maintenance appointment.

The second way to know that your HVAC system is working properly is if you don’t notice anything to indicate otherwise. Typically, if an HVAC system isn’t functioning properly, you’ll notice something off. Telltale signs indicating your system isn’t working properly may include a buzzing or rattling sound coming from the system, visible rust or cracks on the system’s surface, your furnace only blowing cool air or your air conditioner only blowing warm air, humidity levels that are off in your home, rooms heating unevenly, or an unexpected rise in your utility bills. If you haven’t noticed any of these signs, then your HVAC system is likely in good working order. But if you have, then contact Anchor Home Comfort right away.

When should I change my HVAC system?

Experts recommend changing your HVAC system every 10 to 20 years. Air conditioners and furnaces are generally designed to last between one and two decades. If you aren’t sure whether it’s time to change your current HVAC system, book a maintenance appointment with Anchor Home Comfort. A licensed and certified technician will come to your home and assess your system before offering their professional opinion on whether your current system needs to be replaced.

How often does my HVAC system need maintenance?

Experts agree that HVAC systems need regular maintenance to function optimally. Regular maintenance typically means having your HVAC system serviced once a year. During a maintenance appointment, an Anchor Home Comfort technician will come to your home to assess your system. Specifically, they will inspect the thermostat, air conditioner, and heating system and calibrate them as needed, lubricate all moving parts in the systems to decrease friction, check the air filter, cleaning and replacing it if necessary, test the unit’s safety controls and startup cycle, and complete a written analysis of the service’s findings. As you can see, Anchor Home Comfort conducts thorough maintenance services so that we can ensure your system is in good working order before leaving.

How much does an HVAC installation cost in Arnprior?

The cost of HVAC installation in Arnprior varies as it is dependent on several factors. One such factor is the type of HVAC system you’re installing. Boiler, heat pump, water heater, air conditioner, and furnace installations do not all cost the same amount of money. Further, the price of installation can also differ between the same types of units, as some models may be more complicated (and therefore expensive) to install. Two other factors used to determine the price of your Arnprior HVAC installation include the size of your home and the age and condition of your home’s ductwork.

Which is more expensive: AC or furnace?

The cost of air conditioners and furnaces in Arnprior varies depending on the specific home and model you choose. However, some homeowners might find the price of installing central air conditioners and gas furnaces in their Arnprior homes to be comparable.

How are homes heated in Arnprior?

Homes in Arnprior are largely heated by furnaces, with natural gas-based furnaces being the most popular heating system. However, your Arnprior home may also be heated by an alternative heating system like baseboard heaters, solar heaters, heat pumps, and boilers.

  • 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.

  • How often does my HVAC system need maintenance?

    Homeowners should book a maintenance service for their HVAC system once a year.

    Maintenance services are one of the most effective preventative ways of ensuring your HVAC system is functioning optimally and preserving your system. Having your air conditioner, furnace, heat pump, or whatever unit you use annually assessed by a professional extends its lifespan, makes your system more energy efficient, and can save you money down the line.

    Anchor Home Comfort offers some of the most thorough HVAC maintenance services in the Ottawa region. During the maintenance service, your technician will do the following: inspect the thermostat and heating system and calibrate it as needed, lubricate all moving parts in the system to decrease friction, clean and replace the air filter, if necessary, test the system’s safety controls and startup cycle, and complete a written analysis of their findings.

  • How often should a furnace or air conditioner be replaced?

    Modern furnace and AC units are designed to last between 10 and 20 years. In contrast, if your home is outfitted with a new, modern AC unit, it is more likely to last between 15 and 20 years.

    Signs your furnace or AC might need to be replaced include uneven heating and cooling, a rise in utility bills without explanation, visible rust or cracks on your existing unit, humidity problems, or buzzing or rattling sounds. If any of these signs sound familiar, get in touch with Anchor Home Comfort. We can answer your questions or send a technician to your home to inspect your HVAC system.

  • How much does it cost to install central air in Ottawa?

    Many Ottawa homeowners prefer central air conditioners. Unlike their window or portable counterparts, central air conditioning tends to be more effective. With Ottawa summers only getting hotter, AC isn’t just a luxury anymore. If you’re thinking of installing central air conditioning in your Ottawa home, you’re probably wondering how much it’s going to cost. This ultimately depends on several key factors, such as the size and layout of your home, the age and condition of your home’s existing ductwork, and the size and model of air conditioning unit you buy. Beyond the initial price of installation, you should also budget for the cost of running the unit. However, if you’re replacing an older central air conditioner with a new model, then your monthly energy bills may decrease due to greater energy efficiency.

    Overall, the best way to find out the cost of installing a central A/C unit in your Ottawa home is to request a free quote from Anchor Home Comfort.
