Keeping Air Conditioners in Good Shape


Home air conditioners are a critical part of residential HVAC that keep you cool at home during the hot and humid summer months in Ottawa. Unfortunately, as is the case with any type of machine, they are bound to break down, and eventually need to be replaced. When an air conditioner breaks, you quickly begin to feel the heat in your home which makes day-to-day living quite uncomfortable. The best way to avoid this unfortunate scenario is with regular air conditioner maintenance services. Advanced HVAC is here to make sure that your air conditioner keeps running when you need it most.

Air Conditioner Maintenance Keeps Money In Your Pocket

By having a licensed and insured HVAC technician perform regular maintenance on your air conditioner, you ensure that your air conditioner will always work when you need it to. Regular air conditioner maintenance will also lower the chances of your AC unit breaking down when you need it most. Maintenance services are not nearly as costly as air conditioner repair services, so it’s better to prevent your air conditioner from breaking down as opposed to fixing it when it does. A skilled HVAC technician who is performing air conditioner maintenance will also be able to tell you when you should think about getting your AC unit replaced. Think of this as an advance warning that will give you plenty of time to plan for the expense that comes with replacing your air conditioner. If you are ready to keep your air conditioner in working order and make it last as long as possible, then contact us today for air conditioner maintenance services for your home!



What are some tips you have for running my air conditioning system?2020-05-15T13:20:59-04:00

There are a number of ways in which you can maximize both your comfort and your savings by running your air conditioning properly. Using a programmable or smart thermostat is a good start, as this will help you reach and maintain your desired temperature of comfort when you need it; and then can keep your home a bit less cool at night or when you are out of the house. Some people ask whether they should close off vents in rooms that are not occupied; while this may seem like a good plan, in general we advise against it for best air flow. You’ll want to clean and replace your air conditioner filters regularly. Many people also prefer to keep the blower ‘on’ the whole time, rather than on ‘auto,’ to provide a constant air flow and better filtration throughout the home (it may cost you a slightly higher hydro bill, but the comfort & benefits usually well outweigh the costs). However, if the outside humidity is higher, running the blower constantly may end up pumping more humidity through the system, so monitor and adjust as needed. Keep shades & blinds closed during the hours the sun will be hitting those windows, so that the house doesn’t begin to heat up and require the air conditioner to run more. We’ve mentioned it before, but proactive maintenance is also strongly advised; an annual air conditioning service will include a tune-up of the A/C system and find potential issues that are best attended to now rather than wait for costlier air conditioning repair later.

When I buy a new air conditioner now, how long should I expect it to last?2020-05-15T13:22:39-04:00

The air conditioner product life cycle can vary somewhat by brand and specific model. In general, today’s air conditioning units can be expected to last between 10 and 15 years. When you speak with an air conditioning specialist from Advanced HVAC in Ottawa, we’ll let you know more about the specs of the A/C unit(s) you’re looking at and how long they are expected to last. When we speak of the expected lifetime of an air conditioner, that is, of course, assuming proper maintenance and upkeep. While reasonably minimal, there are a few things you can do to keep the A/C unit lasting longer, such as cleaning the coils, changing the air conditioning filter and performing a yearly air conditioning tune-up and maintenance.

What’s the best brand of air conditioners?2020-05-15T13:23:52-04:00

There are a number of solid, reputable air conditioning brands on the market today. We are glad to install a wide variety of makes and models of air conditioning. We also are proud to sell Bryant air conditioning units. We offer Bryant to our customers because we’ve had great experiences with Bryant over the years, and we wouldn’t want to sell you an air conditioner that wasn’t superior in quality and that we wouldn’t use ourselves. We’re a factory authorized Bryant A/C dealer and are very confident in the products and service from this great company.

What size air conditioner should I get for my home or business?2020-05-15T13:24:42-04:00

The size of your air conditioner unit is important, but so are efficiency and performance levels. Advanced HVAC in Ottawa can help you find the right size and configuration of air conditioner for your use and budgetary needs. One of our friendly & helpful A/C techs can visit your home or business, assess the size and layout of your home, look at the existing ductwork and (if you already have one) current A/C unit, then will advise on recommendations for a new air conditioner that will serve you and your home or office/store/etc. well. Square footage of the building is one unit of measurement we look at. But there’s also the total length of the ductwork that the air will be flowing through. Also, we take into account how many floors are in the home or space being cooled, as well as the sun and/or shade conditions outside, etc. All of these combine to give us a good idea of the size of air conditioner unit you need as well as how well it should perform.

Do I need air conditioning in Ottawa?2020-05-15T13:25:57-04:00

As society becomes more modernized and we can appreciate the many comforts which we’ve earned, more and more people own and operate an air conditioning system in their Ottawa homes. Although Ottawa is (in)famous for its cold & harsh winters, in general what we have here is a semi-continental climate, complete with four distinct seasons. Ottawa summers can get plenty hot, with high humidity levels as well. The combination of heat and humidity throughout the late spring and summer months has many homeowners seeking the comfort that air conditioning provides. Today’s air conditioning systems are highly energy-efficient, providing cooling on-demand and keeping you and your family enjoying your home around the clock, throughout the summer. The air conditioner units we sell and install here at Advanced HVAC are among the best on the market but won’t set you back much financially. Also, with a programmable (or smart) thermostat you can control your desired temperatures and not over-cool when you are sleeping or not at home. Contact Advanced HVAC today to find out more and get a quote for an air conditioning system that will put you and your family in the cool comfort you deserve.

How can I increase the lifespan and efficiency of my AC unit?2022-04-08T17:32:12-04:00

Regular air conditioning maintenance is the key to make your AC unit last and for it to work efficiently. Also, on top of scheduling routine AC maintenance services, you can consider installing additional shutters, screens, and drapes around the house to decrease the need for your AC to work harder than it has to.

How often should I have maintenance done on my air conditioner?2022-04-08T11:24:44-04:00

You should consider getting air conditioning maintenance done on your AC system at least once a year. The best time of the year to check-up on your AC unit is in the late spring or early summer. With regular maintenance you can ensure that your air conditioning is working effectively, efficiently, and you can also catch potential issues sooner rather than later.
