We don’t like to brag, but we’re home air conditioning experts. It’s just one of the many things we do very well. We’ve been around for a while now, over 30 years in fact, and during that time we’ve learned a lot about air conditioning. One thing we were excited about when technology began to change is automation.

Automation Is Good For Air Conditioning

It’s not uncommon for people to waste energy and in turn money on air conditioning by leaving the system running throughout the day. Whether they don’t know any better or they forget to turn it off, they’ve left it running at a temperature designed for when people are actually home. Many of our customers do this, until we advise them otherwise of course. By now most of our customers have programmable or smart thermostats, which are excellent inventions and in our eyes a necessary automation for every home.

Using these thermostats is the best way to save money on both your air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter. Many smart thermostats actually allow you to gauge your energy usage in addition to controlling your system from anywhere.

  • Check on the air conditioning and heating systems using a remote thermostat that connects to Wi-Fi.
  • Track energy usage with data stored in the application.
  • Allow the thermostat to learn your habits in order to automatically set the most efficient temperatures for your needs.
  • Have the ability to control the temperature in case there is a drastic shift in the atmospheric temperature.

We install hundreds of new programmable and smart thermostats every year throughout Toronto and the GTA, saving our customers thousand of dollars every year.

Programmable and smart thermostats install easily with just about any air conditioning system, and with the help of an HVAC air conditioning professional you can start saving money on your energy bills in no time at all. Well, you can actually begin saving the moment your new thermostat is activated. So why wait?

Earlier this year, Kyle and Samantha had just bought a new home in the east end of Toronto in Leslieville. Like all homes in the area it’s old, but has been renovated, so there are few mechanical issues with the house. Being a smaller home the person who did the renovation left the boiler and radiators in the home to maximize space. To supplement the heating, provide air circulation and also cooling in the summer they also installed a ductless heat pump. A ductless heat pump is a great way to further add control to the heating and cooling systems, so it is a welcome addition to any home, but in this case it was poorly installed.

Unfortunately for Kyle and Samantha this ductless heat pump wasn’t installed correctly, which led to its early demise. Without a warranty or any other recourse to take with the seller of the home, they called Novel Care Toronto. We can certainly sympathize with Kyle and Samantha because moving can be a time consuming and expensive part of life. While it’s expensive it should also be exciting, so this road bump took some of the wind out of their sails.

Since we were replacing the ductless heat pump anyway, they wanted a new system with increased efficiency to provide the comfort they wanted in the main living area of their home, but without a big impact on the energy bills.

We replaced the old broken down ductless heat pump system with a new Mitsubishi Hyper Heat heat pump system. These state of the art systems come with a 10 year parts and labor warranty, so if anything goes wrong with this one they will certainly be covered. Ductless heat pump systems act both as cool and heating sources for the home, and come with humidity control, which is important for homes with boilers and radiators.

We were happy to help Kyle and Samantha out with this little problem. In the short term it can be frustrating, but in the long run they might look back on it and have a bit of a laugh. If you have a ductless heat pump or any ductless air conditioning system that needs to be replaced call Novel Care Toronto.

One of the most common questions that we get from our customer, friends and family about our job is how does ductless AC work? It’s a very effective system for cooling your home and the process itself is fairly straightforward. But make no mistake, the technology in a ductless AC unit is state of the art and very impressive. That’s why they’re so efficient and reliable these days.

Essentially, ductless AC systems provide cooling and heating in your home without needing ductwork. The indoor unit that you see hanging on the wall or ceiling has a corresponding outdoor unit. The outdoor unit is called the compressor and carries refrigerant and power to the indoor unit through a small system of pipes. The refrigerant is delivered directly to the indoor unit, which is also called the air handler, typically located on the wall or ceiling of a room in your home. Installation is fairly easy and does not require any major construction or renovating. All that it takes is to drill a small 4 inch hole in an exterior wall that can be used to connect the two units.

If you also want ductless heating, you will need to install a ductless heat pump. These units look and function basically the same as ductless AC units. They supply both heating and cooling.

Here’s an example of how a ductless AC system is connected.

When is it best to use a ductless AC system?

Ductless systems and heat pumps are very useful in lots of situations and can be a great addition or any cooling or heating system in your home. There are several scenarios in which you should consider installing a ductless AC system:

  1. If you have an addition that you need to heat and cool, and don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on installing ductwork.
  2. If you have an attic or a garage space that you want to heat and don’t want to, or cannot install ductwork.
  3. If you live in an old house, where structurally it would be too difficult and expensive to install a new system of ducts.
  4. If your home is relatively small (under 1500 sq. ft.) and ductwork cannot be easily installed.
  5. If you have central heat and AC, but want a supplemental system when temperatures get either too hot or cold. A ductless system can work well in particular rooms of the house that don’t get adequate heating or cooling from the central system.

For more information about ductless AC or heat pumps give us a call. We’ll be happy to help you find out if ductless air conditioning is right for your home. Contact us today for a free estimate: 905-737-5016.

In case you haven’t noticed, summer is officially here. The weather is beautiful, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the air is starting to get much warmer. We’ve heard from lots of customers who have turned on their ductless air conditioner already just to test it out before the hot weather arrives. Some are working great and some need replacing. Turning it on for a test is a great idea and we recommend all of our customers do the same. It’s the best way to ensure that your ductless air conditioner is working after sitting for the winter, and if it’s needs replacing you need to start thinking about buying a new ductless air conditioner now.

Buying A New Ductless Air Conditioner In Toronto

Many Toronto homes are nearing 100 years old, and if they weren’t renovated with duct systems then they probably utilize ductless air conditioners, or have no air conditioning at all. Either way, buying a new ductless air conditioner will create a cool and comfortable environment for you and your family all summer, and last for many years.

You’ll notice that there are many different manufacturers when you’re buying a new ductless air conditioner.

  • Fujitsu Ductless Air Conditioners – Fujitsu has been manufacturing high quality ductless air conditioners for over 35 years. They provide many options for high quality and high-efficiency ductless products. When buying a new ductless air conditioner, considering Fujitsu is important.
  • Mitsubishi Ductless Air Conditioners – Mitsubishi is a well recognized brand worldwide. They might be known mostly for their automobiles, but they also manufacture lots of other high quality products. Mitsubishi manufactures electronics and Mitsubishi ductless air conditioners are a main product in their catalogue. Their ductless air conditioners are designed to work well in all environments such as residential, commercial, industrial and hospitality. Buying a new ductless air conditioner made by Mitsubishi is a great idea.
  • LG Ductless Air Conditioners – LG is fairly new to the world of ductless air conditioning, but that doesn’t mean LG ductless air conditioners aren’t a good product. They’ve have quickly taken a large share of the market because they’ve been identified by HVAC technicians and customers as high quality and reliable. In their brief 10 year history LG ductless air conditioners have developed a reputation for being very energy-efficient. If you’re buying a new ductless air conditioner take a look at some of the LG ductless products.
  • Panasonic Ductless Air Conditioners – Like Mitsubishi, Panasonic is a brand name that’s been around for a very long time. They’re known more for excellent consumer electronics rather than automobiles, and they’ve also moved into the ductless air conditioning market. They’ve been delivering great products in the ductless air conditioner industry for many years and if you’re buying a new ductless air conditioner an energy-efficient Panasonic ductless air conditioner won’t let you down.
  • Daikin Ductless Air Conditioners – Unlike many other manufacturers that make ductless air conditioners, Daikin only works in the HVAC industry. They manufacture many different commercial and residential heating and cooling solutions, and ductless air conditioners are a big part of that. When you’re buying a new ductless air conditioner, installing a Daikin ductless air conditioner in your home is an excellent idea.

Owning a home in Toronto and the GTA is no small achievement. With inflated prices being the talk of the town, you may not have a very big budget left over for any upgrades to your new investment. This is why it’s so valuable to do a bit of research before spending on renovations. Let’s take a closer look at exactly what will be included in your ductless HVAC installation cost.

The Upside of Choosing Ductless

The goal with any upgrade to your home should be to make sure it’s helpful in the long-term. Ductless HVAC systems are a nice addition to housing that lacks the ductwork that is necessary for central air conditioning and heating. Ideally suited for add-ons and homes heated with boilers, these systems work best for spot cooling. You see, ductless is made up of an indoor unit to control the temperature and distribute the warm and cool air, while the outdoor condenser pulls in air to be fed through tubing that connect the two together. That means they will efficiently cool or heat a given area of your home, which keeps energy bills lower and they require less invasive installation methods.

What Will Increase My Ductless HVAC Installation Cost?

It’s important to note one significant point about these systems though. They aren’t as efficient when heating and cooling larger homes or ones with poor insulation. If you have a bigger space, you may need to budget for more than one unit as part of your ductless HVAC installation cost.

Also, the look of ductless systems doesn’t always suit everyone’s sense of style. After all, unlike central systems, these consist of one large indoor unit that will be placed up high in a given room.

While the initial setup isn’t overly complicated, doing it incorrectly can add to your ductless HVAC installation cost in the long run. It’s always a good idea to hire the right professional for any upgrades to ensure they are done correctly. Plus, not only are companies liable for their work, but they have the experience necessary to instil confidence.

Finding The Right Ductless Installation Professional

It’s inevitable, summer is slowly coming to a close. The days are getting shorter, the air is cooler at night, and you may even notice your furnace kicking in from time to time. One thing to keep in mind is that just because summer is ending doesn’t mean that you should neglect the maintenance on your ductless air conditioner. In fact, fall is the perfect time to perform annual maintenance on your ductless air conditioning system.

Ductless Air Maintenance

Vacuuming and general cleaning of your ductless air conditioning components should be something you take care of regularly, but if not then fall is the perfect time to do so. Cleaning out the filters, and wiping the dust off all the surfaces makes it easier for your unit to move air around and actually increases the efficiency of your system.

Check all the connections at your indoor and outdoor units. Ensure that there are no leaks or loose wires, or any corrosion on any of the elements. A good visual inspection should be sufficient to identify any obvious problems with your units.

Above and beyond a simple cleaning and checking of the components, it’s a good idea to contact a professional and experienced HVAC company for additional maintenance. Having a complete understand of the workings and functioning of ductless air systems is essential to ensuring they are operating properly and efficiently.

Some systems might be larger, older, and have unique things about them that only professional technicians will understand.

Ductless Air Repairs

When an inspection and maintenance is being done on a ductless system, an HVAC technician will also look for components that are wearing out and in need or repair and replacement. This is one of the most important things about having a professional take care of your unit’s maintenance. In order to ensure your unit lasts for many years to come certain components will need to be replaced as they wear out in order to maintain efficiency as ductless units age.
