Should I repair my old HVAC system or have a new HVAC installation instead?

The answer to this question depends on multiple factors. One factor is the age of the HVAC system. Most HVAC systems are designed to last between 10 and 20 years, so if you’ve had your system for over a decade, it might be time to replace it. Plus, older units tend to be less energy-efficient. They may also need more frequent repairs, which could end up costing you more money than if you had replaced them. Beyond the age of the system, a few other telltale signs that your HVAC unit should be replaced include if it makes a rattling or buzzing sound when in use, if you notice visible cracks or rust on it, if your utility bills have risen without explanation, if you have humidity problems in your home, or if rooms in your home are heating unevenly. If you want a professional opinion on whether to repair your old HVAC system or have a new one installed, contact Anchor Home Comfort. One of our expert technicians will be pleased to examine your system and help you answer this important question.

How Often Does My HVAC System Need Maintenance? 

Experts recommend that Rockland homeowners have their HVAC systems serviced annually. HVAC maintenance services, like those offered by Anchor Home Comfort, are preventative. Booking regular maintenance appointments can be extremely beneficial when it comes to extending the life of your HVAC system, increasing its energy efficiency (and saving you money on your monthly utility bills), and preventing serious, long-term problems from occurring that could cost more money down the line. 

While HVAC systems should be serviced once a year, there might be a reason that causes you to have them serviced more frequently than that. For example, if you notice any of the telltale signs of a problem, we recommend booking an HVAC maintenance appointment as soon as possible. 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 you want to book an HVAC maintenance appointment, whether you think something is wrong or you simply want an annual tune-up, call Anchor Home Comfort today. We offer 24/7 HVAC services to all Rockland residents. Even better, our round-the-clock repairs come at no extra cost. There are no hidden or additional fees, whether you book your service on a weekday, weekend, holiday, or after hours.

How much does a new HVAC installation cost in Rockland?

HVAC installation in Rockland, Ontario varies in price as it depends on several factors. First, the type of HVAC unit you’re installing impacts the cost. The price of installing heat pumps, water heaters, air conditioners, and furnaces is not necessarily the same. Cost can even vary between the same types of units, as certain units may be more complicated to install than others. Further, the size of your Rockland home and the age and condition of its ductwork can also affect the cost of installation. If you’re curious to know how much an HVAC installation will cost you in Rockland, get in touch with Anchor Home Comfort. We are pleased to provide complimentary quotes on HVAC installations to all Rockland homeowners. After giving us the details of your HVAC installation, we will provide an accurate and competitive quote.

Can HVAC systems overheat?

Yes, HVAC systems can overheat. The leading causes of overheated HVAC systems in Rockland are dirty condenser coils, refrigerant leaks, and blocked air filters. If you suspect your HVAC system might be overheating, then you may have noticed the following telltale signs: restricted airflow coming from your vents, a strange buzzing or rattling noise coming from the system, a strong odour emanating from the unit, or the unit frequently turning on and off. To fix an overheated HVAC system, contact Anchor Home Comfort. We will send a fully licensed and certified technician to your home to assess your HVAC unit and get to the root of the problem.

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

Furnaces vary in price, even among Rockland homes of the same size. There are many furnace models on the market today and they can differ in price by thousands of dollars. Ultimately, the model you choose will determine the price. However, it’s important to keep in mind that furnaces are designed for specific sizes of homes. Not all furnaces will heat a 1,500 square foot home. If your Rockland home is around 1,500 square feet in size, look for a furnace with a minimum output of 40,000 BTUs (British thermal units) and a maximum output of 90,000 BTUs. 

When should the heat be turned on in my Rockland home?

Rockland homeowners can turn their heating systems on whenever they start to feel cold in their homes. This could be as early as September or as late as November. It depends on your comfort levels and the weather patterns in your region.

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

We always suggest replacing indoor and outdoor HVAC units together. Why? Only replacing one unit can lead to serious problems. Namely, when only one part of the system is replaced, it can result in a mismatched system. Mismatched systems may have trouble heating or cooling your home, which can lead to uneven temperatures and greater energy consumption. To ensure your HVAC system is compatible, always replace the outdoor and indoor HVAC systems together.

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.
