What is an HVAC system? 

Many homeowners wonder what HVAC stands for. We’re here to reveal that HVAC is an acronym that stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. In essence, HVAC systems cool, heat, and move air between indoor and outdoor areas in buildings. Such systems are commonly found in both residential and commercial properties, including homes. Examples of HVAC units include heat pumps, boilers, water heaters, furnaces (gas, oil, and propane-based), and air conditioners. If you currently have one or more HVAC units in your Clarence home, then you likely understand their purpose. HVAC systems are designed to give homeowners greater total control over the temperature, airflow, and humidity levels in their homes. In turn, this allows for optimal indoor comfort.

How do I know if my HVAC system is operating safely?

The first and most effective way of knowing if your HVAC system is operating safely is by scheduling a maintenance service. Anchor Home Comfort specializes in maintenance services on all types of HVAC units. HVAC systems should be serviced once a year to ensure they are operating safely and efficiently. Therefore, to find out if your HVAC system is operating safely, contact Anchor Home Comfort and book a maintenance appointment. In addition to confirming whether your HVAC system is safe, regular maintenance appointments can prolong the life of your HVAC system, increase its energy efficiency (and save you money on your monthly energy bills), and prevent serious, long-term problems from occurring that could cost more money in the future. 

The second way to know if your HVAC system is operating safely is if you’ve recently noticed any problems with it. If an HVAC system is on the fritz or simply not operating as efficiently as it could be, there are usually signs. Telltale signs something is wrong 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 any of these signs sound familiar, get in touch with Anchor Home Comfort right away. We’ll send someone to your home to examine your HVAC system as soon as possible. We are pleased to offer 24/7 HVAC repairs to all Clarence residents. We understand how stressful a broken furnace or air conditioner can be, especially in the middle of winter or summer. To mitigate this stress and discomfort, we started providing round-the-clock fixes to our customers. Even better, there are no hidden or unexpected costs when you book a service with Anchor Home Comfort, even if your service takes place on a weekend, holiday, or after hours.

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?

Clarence homeowners should schedule maintenance services for their HVAC systems once a year. An annual tune-up is what experts recommend. For those that don’t know, HVAC maintenance services with Anchor Home Comfort are extensive. We send a fully licensed and certified technician to your home. From there, 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. If our technician detects a problem, they will get to the root of it and fix it for you. We won’t leave your home until your HVAC system is functioning at its highest capacity.

If i replace my outdoor HVAC system, do i need to also replace my indoor HVAC system?

Experts recommend replacing indoor and outdoor HVAC units together. The problem with only replacing the outdoor unit and not the indoor unit is that it creates a mismatched system. A mismatched system won’t heat or cool your home as effectively as one that is compatible.

How much does an HVAC installation cost in Clarence?

The cost of HVAC installations in Clarence differs as installations are dependent on many factors. The type of HVAC unit you’re having installed (whether it be a boiler, air conditioner, furnace, heat pump, or water heater), the specific make and model of the unit being installed, and whether the unit is replacing an old unit can all impact the price. Further, the size of your Clarence home, as well as the age and condition of the home’s ductwork may also impact the price of installation.

To find out how much an HVAC installation costs for your Clarence home, contact Anchor Home Comfort today. We provide free quotes on HVAC installations to all Clarence residents. Tell us the details of your HVAC installation and one of our customer service representatives will get back to you shortly with an accurate and competitive free quote and add financing offer.

When should the heat be turned on in Clarence?

The answer to this question is it’s entirely up to you! You can turn on the heat in your Clarence home whenever you like. What matters is your comfort. So if you start to feel uncomfortably cold in your home, turn on the heat. The World Health Organization lists the ideal indoor temperature range as between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius. While this might work for some people, it could also be too warm or cold for others. Therefore, your Clarence heat can be turned on whenever you want, whether that’s early September or the end of October.

How are homes heated in Clarence?

Homes in Clarence, as with the rest of Canada, are typically heated by furnaces. Natural gas-based furnaces are the most popular, but oil and propane-based furnaces also exist. If your Clarence home isn’t heated by a furnace, then it may be heated by one of the following alternative heating systems: baseboard heaters, solar heaters, heat pumps, and boilers. 

How much is a new furnace for a 1500 square foot house?

Furnaces vary in price by thousands of dollars. How much a furnace costs ultimately depends on the model you choose, as well as several other factors. The size of a home is just one factor that determines the price. Keep in mind that when purchasing a furnace, you must buy one that will be able to adequately heat a home of your size. For 1,500 square foot properties, experts recommend purchasing a furnace with a minimum output of 40,000 BTUs (British thermal units) and a maximum output of 90,000 BTUs.

Our FAQS

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.

  • 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. Please note that we offer same-day and next-day installations of both heating and cooling systems in Ottawa.

  • 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.
