You Don't Have to Suffer In The Heat

Posted on: June 26th, 2013 by zach

Many people in Vancouver usually just tough it out through the hot summer months because in reality there is only really 2 months of serious heat. Most people don’t even entertain the idea of Air Conditioning because they assume it will be expensive or they simply just don’t know enough about it. I will explain a few of the options and benefits of investing in an AC system for your home.

There are 3 main types of AC you can have in you home.

1. If you have a furnace we can install a heat pump which will actually heat and cool your home. The unit works by supplying cold air to your furnace, which in turn distributes the cold are throughout your house. In the winter you can use the heat pump to heat your home as well. This method is very efficient and has the lowest amount of carbon footprint. This means you are saving money and helping the environment.

2. Another option is a central AC system. This works independently from you heating system and has its on duct work. This is ideal of if you can install it when you build your house.

3. The third and most popular right now is the ductless split method. This method is very common for people in BC as it is designed for people who have boilers or base board heaters. Because boilers have no existing venting that can be used to transfer the air, we have to install a ductless system. The beauty about a ductless is that you can choose to have it in as little or as many rooms as you like. It simply hangs on the wall and provided cooling to the room. Its that simple! Some models even have sensors that push the air to the warmer parts of the room. It does this with an infrared camera that reads the heat in the room.
Another benefit to the ductless system is its high efficiency and dual capabilities. The ductless systems are mini-heat pumps so you can also heat your home in the winter. The cost of heating with the ductless is cheaper than with a standard boiler because it is more efficient.

The next big heatwave just remember, you have options! Any home in Vancouver can have AC, its just a matter of finding the right system for your home.
