what should i look for in an HVAC System?

If you’re buying a new HVAC system for your Cumberland home, there are a few things you should look for. Anchor Home Comfort recommends evaluating all potential HVAC units according to the following criteria: energy efficiency, capacity, maintenance requirements, noise level, cost, and thermostat compatibility. Comparing HVAC units with these criteria in mind can help you find the right unit for your home and budget. It can also help you discover what your top priorities are when it comes to a new HVAC unit. For example, you might realize that energy efficiency is the factor that matters most to you, and so finding a unit with a SEER rating of 15 or over becomes a top priority. In contrast, you might discover that noise is your main concern, in which case you might settle on an HVAC unit known for operating with minimal noise. Alternatively, if budget is your main priority, as it is for lots of Canadians, then your ultimate goal might be to find an HVAC unit that doesn’t break the bank. (A quick note on low-cost HVAC units. Cheap HVAC units tend to be less energy-efficient than their more expensive counterparts, so while they might save you more money upfront, they could be more costly down the line owing to higher utility bills.)

When should i change my hVAC System?

We recommend changing your HVAC system every 10 to 20 years. Modern air conditioners and furnaces are generally designed to last between one and two decades. The lifespan of your specific system will depend on the models you chose and whether maintenance services were conducted regularly. If you aren’t sure whether you should change your HVAC system, contact Anchor Home Comfort. We can send a licensed and certified technician to your home to assess your system. From there, they can offer their professional opinion on whether your current system should be replaced.

What causes HVAC Systems to freeze up?

Typically, it is the air conditioner in an HVAC system that is prone to freezing. One of the leading causes of freezing in HVAC systems is a dirty air filter. The air filter is the part responsible for filtering and cleaning the air that makes its way into your home. However, if it’s not cleaned regularly, dust, pollen, dirt, and other allergens can build up. In turn, this can restrict airflow leading the refrigerant coils to freeze. If you suspect your HVAC system is frozen, Anchor Home Comfort can help. Contact us immediately, explain the problem, we can have a technician at your home in no time.

how do i know if my HVAC System is Working Properly?

Cumberland homeowners will know if their HVAC systems are working properly if they don’t notice any of the common signs of a problem. Common signs that something might be wrong with your system are 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, then chances are your HVAC system is not functioning as it should. In such a situation, you should contact a trusted HVAC company like Anchor Home Comfort to assess your system immediately.

Another way to know if your Cumberland HVAC system is working properly is to book an annual maintenance appointment with Anchor Home Comfort. Generally speaking, experts recommend that HVAC systems be serviced once a year. Cumberland homeowners can derive several benefits from regular maintenance appointments, like extending the lives of their HVAC systems, increasing the energy efficiency of their HVAC systems (and saving your money on your monthly utility bills in the process), and preventing serious, long-term problems from occurring that could cost more money down the line.

Ultimately, if you think an HVAC maintenance appointment is right for you, whether you think something is wrong with your system or you simply want an annual tune-up, get in touch with Anchor Home Comfort. We offer 24/7, round-the-clock HVAC services to all Cumberland residents. And there are no hidden costs or unexpected fees.

What is involved in HVAC maintenance?

HVAC maintenance is a preventative service and one of many HVAC services offered by Anchor Home Comfort. The purpose of HVAC maintenance services is to assess your HVAC system and ensure its functioning as it should be. During a maintenance service with Anchor Home Comfort, a certified technician 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. Anchor Home Comfort’s HVAC maintenance services are designed to be as extensive as can be. If there is a problem, we will get to the root of it and fix it for you.

How much does HVAC installation cost in Cumberland?

The cost of HVAC installation in Cumberland varies based on several factors. Such factors include the size of your home, the age and condition of your home’s existing ductwork, and the model and type of HVAC unit you need to install. For example, the cost of installing a heat pump or water heater in Cumberland isn’t the same as the price of installing a central air conditioner or gas furnace. The price of installation can even vary between the same types of HVAC units, since some models may be more complicated (and therefore expensive) to install. 

To learn more about how much an HVAC installation will cost you in Cumberland, contact Anchor Home Comfort. We are happy to provide quotes to Cumberland residents. All HVAC installation quotes are fully complementary and obligation-free. 

Anchor Home Comfort is also happy to have financing available when purchasing a new HVAC system!

How are homes heated in Cumberland?

Most homes in Cumberland, as in the rest of Canada, are heated by furnaces. Gas furnaces are the most common type of furnace in Canada, but oil and propane furnaces also exist, so it’s possible your Cumberland home is heated by them as well. Other types of heating systems in Canada include baseboard heaters, solar heaters, heat pumps, and boilers.

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

This is a difficult question to answer as the cost of a furnace, even for homes of the same size, is not necessarily the same. Modern, state-of-the-art models will likely cost more than basic models. Therefore, the price of your furnace will depend on the model you choose. Remember that you’ll need to buy a furnace suited to the size of your home. For example, to efficiently heat a 1,500 square foot property, you should look for 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.
