Air Conditioner Safety

Air Conditioner Safety

As we have previously discussed a central air conditioner can draw a lot of power, and for this reason there are a number of safety checks involved in your system. We are going to discuss the breakers and fuse panels associated with your system and why they are employed. Air Conditioner Safety Systems First off usually in your basement or closet of your home you will find a whole home fuse box. This is most often either a 100 or 200 amp service. Your central air conditioner will have a breaker in this fuse panel. Having your system professional installed will ensure that a correctly sized maximum fuse or breaker is used. The MOP or maximum over current protection needs to be installed according to the size of air conditioner you need for your home. In addition to that your homes air conditioner will likely have a safety disconnect outside near to where the actual unit sits. This disconnect is always installed on new installations and reduces the chance of people working on the AC while the power is live. Severe injuries can occur if the system starts up with a technician is working on an air conditioner. Locking Your Air Conditioner Safety Disconnect The outdoor disconnect is vulnerable to pranks as it is outside and out of sight. Simply opening the door and flipping the breaker will completely turn your central air conditioner off; we always recommend you check both breakers before calling a technician if your air conditioner is not running. If you are having troubles with someone flicking your breaker off outside you can put a small lock on the box preventing any unlawful access. If your central air conditioner is not working check BOTH circuit breakers, one at your homes main panel and the other at the lockout box located outside on the wall beside your unit. Should your air conditioner still not work after resetting both fuses it might be best to call a technician. Our service department call center is trained to go over a few additional checks with the home owner in an attempt to negate a full service call. Give us a call today (647) 925...

Central Air Conditioner Verses Window Air Conditioner

Central Air Conditioner Verses Window Air Conditioner

There are a number of options home owners can take when deciding how to cool their homes. Today we are going to look at the differences between a temporary air conditioner verses that of a permanently installed solution. Window and Portable Air Conditioners These systems are commonly sold in Home Depot, Canadian Tire, Walmart, etc. They range in size from around 2000 Btu to upwards of 15000 Btu. Basically there are ductless systems, window systems, and roller floor systems. Generally they are most effective when used to cool a single room in your home as there is only one output location. De-humidification One of the primary functions of any air conditioner is dehumidifying the air, this results in much cooler feeling temperatures. Window mounted systems expel the water out the back of the unit, floor standing units sometimes have reservoirs that need to be emptied. SEER Rating Power consumption is an important factor when considering an air conditioner and unfortunately these smaller sized systems are some of the most inefficient systems you can buy. In fact most window and free standing air conditioner have SEER (seasonal energy efficiency rating) below 10. This is equivalent to full home central air conditioners sold in the 70’s. Warranty These small systems typically have a one year warranty and realistically are not designed to last any more than 3-5 years. They are built cheaply and are sold at the same standard. Whole Home Central Air Conditioners These systems are designed to cool your entire home, they install into your furnace system and use your homes existing duct-work to spread the cool air evenly. Full home air conditioners are not commonly sold in big box stores due to the specialized knowledge and equipment needed for installation. Your best bet is to have a local contract supply and perform installation. As always we recommend homeowners receive at least three quotes before choosing a contractor. De-humidification As with all air conditioners dehumidifying the air is a big part of maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature. Fully installed central air conditioners have a double walled collection plate that ensures all moisture is caught a diverted to the nearest drain. SEER Rating Whole home air conditioners are now restricted...

Pricing Your Homes Central Air Conditioner.

We are into late May and the heat of the summer season is starting to descend upon southern Ontario and the greater Toronto area. If you are looking for an air conditioner to cool your home this summer but unsure of the costs then we hope to break it down to help you better understand where your money goes. Central Air Costs First off replacing a central air conditioner is usually cheaper than if you have never had one.  The reason for the price discrepancy is due to the extra time and work needed to modify your duct and venting system above your furnace.  An A-coil has to be installed to allow your homes warm air to flow through the chilled coil ultimately cooling the interior of your home. Free Quotes Okay, more importantly what is it going to cost? Just for a small warning I won’t go into specific numbers because each home is different. I have in the past quoted specific numbers only to have a customer reference what I had written, albeit he was in completely different situation and stubbornly refused to listen as to why the prices were different. Thus pricing in this article is simply for example only, I would be more than happy to answer any question you have and give you exact pricing for your home, simply give me a call (647) 925-1930. When installing a new air conditioner two of our technicians will come out to your home with a brand new system that was properly sized and selected by you the home owner during the initial pre consultation.  The price of your central air system will be completely determined by the size, efficiency, and brand that you select.  You can expect somewhere from $700 to over $5000 for a just the air conditioning unit alone. Included in the Installation Our installation includes the A coil, condensation collection systems, charging the lines with coolant, as well as all the labour needed to run the new copper coolant lines and even removal of your old system and all components. Our installation fee can range from around $200 to well over $1000 if your home needs multiple air conditioners. It’s incredible difficult to...

Reliance Air Conditioner Prices

Reliance Air Conditioner Prices

The Reliance air conditioner side of the company is quite large.  In fact Reliance is probably one of the few recognizable names for HVAC equipment in Ontario. There are some pros and cons associated with being one of the biggest players and we’re here to discuss. First off give us a call (647) 925-1930 or fill out our contact form and we will give you a free quote, at least you have a comparison now. The Reliance air conditioner part of the business can rent, finance, or sell you a unit just the same as we can. Reliance uses air conditioners manufactured by Carrier, Amana, and Goodman.  This is similar to us but we also have Lennox systems. The problem is that Reliance is a large company with a lot of overhead, yes they buy a lot of air conditioners and probably get them a bit cheaper than we would due to volume, but maybe they push them out to homes where they aren’t a great fit. Maybe we pay a little more and don’t get bulk discounts but we always order the exact model and size your home needs. I don’t know if Reliance has bad customer service but it’s possible our smaller sized company has a better chance of treating customer better and more efficiently.  Like I said earlier, give us a call and give Reliance a call, get two quotes and choose the company that you feel the most comfortable with.  Don’t forget that by comparing quotes you can know for sure you’re not being “ripped off”. We are confident in our prices and our staff, so don’t just stop at Reliance Air conditioners, call and get quotes from other HVAC companies as...

We are certified to make air conditioner repairs on top brands like Trane, Carrier, Bryant, Lennox, Amana, Goodman, and many more. As we all know this winter has been a bit on the extreme side of things compared to last season.  Currently as I type this the great lakes have 92% ice coverage, this is way higher than anything we have seen in the last 35 years.  Forecasters are suggesting that the deep cold and abundance of moisture (ice and snow currently) will contribute to a cooler damp summer season.  This of course lends to the idea that making it through one more season with your current central air conditioner might be a good plan, and it could be. Give us a call (647) 925 – 1930  to have your central air inspected and serviced to maintain your warranty and ensure proper efficient working order before the summer heat hits us.

Charge Air Conditioner Lines

Charge Air Conditioner Lines

Usually most people have a friend of a friend or a connection with someone somewhere where they can get a central air conditioner at a great deal. This has become quite common and we often lose a sale if someone has a connection somewhere. In all honesty I don’t blame home owners; I would take a better deal if I could get one somewhere else as well. Maybe its not the exact same central air system, maybe it’s a better one but a connection can sometimes bring in a great deal. The thing is central air conditioners can only be installed using specialized equipment. The copper lines running from the AC, through the wall, and into the A coil in your furnace have to be filled with a specialized refrigerant and pumped up to a specified pressure. Ones the correct pressure has been attained within the lines the lines are then brazed closed so they can never leak. So you very well may get a great deal on your central air but you will be on the search for an AC company that will come out and charge air conditioner lines and I can tell you it is not a priority for most companies. If you found us looking for a company to charge your air conditioner in the Southern Ontario area then you have stumbled upon the right place. We do charge air conditioner lines for central air conditioner systems. In fact we have actually hired a dedicated technician for this very job as we receive so many requests. So go ahead and get that central air at a great price through your connection knowing we can come out and charge your air conditioner lines in a timely manner. I wish we could put the price up online but size, brand, and system can change costs enough to potentially mislead clients. Give us a call with your new air conditioners details and we can give you an exact cost within a few minutes over the phone.   Call Us Anytime — (647) 925...
