Airconditioning – Keeping Your Toronto Home Cool This Summer

Airconditioning – Keeping Your Toronto Home Cool This Summer

When buying or looking for a new airconditioning unit look for a model with a highest efficiency to achieve the greatest energy cost savings.  Central airconditioning units are rated according to a standardized industry wide rating called SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio). The SEER scale rated airconditioners in and around 1992 at an average of 6-8 SEER.  With fast increases in technology our air conditioners are now averaging around a 13-14 SEER and can easily reach the mid 20’s SEER ratings.  This is such a significant increase in efficiency that airconditioning now consumes 50 percent less energy than it did in the past. SEER indicates the relative amount of energy needed to provide a specific cooling output. As I mentioned before older airconditioning systems have SEER ratings of 6 or less. The minimum SEER allowed today is 13 Substantial energy cost savings can be gained from more efficient airconditioning systems. Lets just say that if you went and checked your homes air conditioner outside and happen to find it is one of those old low lying rectangular box systems. Then, for example, if you upgrade from that old SEER 9 unit at best to A SEER 13, your power consumption is reduced by 30%.  It is claimed that this can result in an energy savings of up to $300 per year, but of course this depends on the usage rate and the cost of electricity. Either way you will be saving some money. Seeing as we are in Toronto and the GTA if the existing airconditiong unit is still functional and well-maintained, and when the time value of money is considered, keeping the unit may be the most cost effective. However, the efficiency of air conditioners can degrade significantly over time. Therefore, maintenance should be performed regularly to keep and airconditioning units efficiency as high as possible. It is important to note that any grants and rebates can significantly change the time value evaluation toward proactive replacement.  There are rebates currently available that we can help you access. We can help get you out of a low SEER airconditioning system and into a new higher efficiency model that will save you money on your Energy bills. Give us a...

Is an Air Conditioner Necessary In Toronto

Toronto is in close proximity to lake Ontario, very close actually.  This huge body of water adds a lot of moisture to the air.  In the winter when cold water passes over the warm water in the lake it forms lake effect snow.  It is slightly less visible in the summer months but as water evaporates it moisture level increases and makes hot weather feel even hotter.  Weather reports sometimes include the humidex which is a temperature rating of how hot it feels outside verses how hot it actually is. What does all this have to do an air conditioner in Toronto? Easy, Toronto’s proximity to lake Ontario add significant amounts of moisture into the surrounding air increasing the humidex rating and therefore making that home air conditioner that much more valuable. If you question why an air conditioner is related to a humidex value then it is important to know that  air conditioners both cool and dehumidify air making it comfortable and liveable in your home.  Do you need an air conditioner if you live in Toronto? This is a subjective question, as it is possible to succumb to heat stroke but the chances are slim.  There is no question that is certainly will make your home more comfortable and it is definitely a selling feature for any house. A mild winter like we are experiencing here in Ontario with temperatures much warmer than normal may lead into a hot humid summer.  So if you like a great deal and want to ensure a cool house during the heat wave that this summer may turn into than now is a great time look at upgrading your air conditioner.  New models have been redesigned and offer great energy savings over units that are over 7 years old.  Contact us and we can assess your air conditioner for efficiency and operational health and replace or install a new one at a great...

During heat waves like this its a good idea to listen to you air conditioner and see how long it runs for, if you never hear it stop you may have a problem.  If this is the case let us know and we can come by and give you some advice on whether the air conditioner need replacement has been inappropriately sized for your home or just needs a quick service call.  Our first consultation is always free so send us a quick message with your issue and we will call you back to schedule a time when you will be home.
