Owning a home in Toronto and the GTA isn’t an easy achievement. You should be proud, but most homeowners are actually a bit overwhelmed with their new responsibilities. From managing property taxes to ensuring your home is energy-efficient, there is plenty to do if you want to protect your investment. When things breakdown, it’s important to know who to call, like in the event you need home air conditioning repair in Toronto.

Finding The Right Home Air Conditioning Repair In Toronto

While it might be easy to lookup “best home air conditioning repair in Toronto”, that doesn’t always produce the best outcome. Often times you might end up with someone who doesn’t fully know what they’re doing, unfamiliar with all the various makes and models, or doesn’t serve your particular area of Toronto and the GTA. It can be quite frustrating to put your home’s repairs in the hands of a stranger, which is why it’s important to weigh your options.

The right home air conditioning repair in Toronto doesn’t always mean the cheapest option available. In fact, there isn’t really a set price since every home is different. A qualified professional would only make recommendations after properly assessing your home to see what the nature of the issue is. And installation is also based on the home itself. Sure you want an efficient model, but the square footage of your home, whether or not you have the correct duct system in place, and the insulation of your home are all crucial factors before selecting a model of home air conditioner.

Take the time to go over a couple of options instead of just hiring the first one you come across. You’ll have plenty to choose from when it comes to home air conditioning repair in Toronto, but the one you choose should have these 5 basics, including:

  • Serves Toronto and the GTA
  • Has more than 10-15 years’ experience
  • Is available in the event of an emergency
  • Is knowledgeable and able to answer your questions
  • Has good reviews online or testimonials/case studies

The summer in Toronto and the GTA is no joke. Each year, heat warnings encourage us to trade fun in the sun for the comfort of the great indoors. This is only a relief if your A/C is working though. Without it, your home could feel like a sauna – which is what got our previous client Abby to give us a call last summer. Rather than look through countless cooling contractors in Toronto, she remembered we’re available 24/7, and promptly contacted us when her A/C went out on an especially hot summer afternoon.

Cooling Contractors In Toronto Who Always Answer Your Call

The temperature had risen well into the 30s – not counting the humidex – when we got Abby’s call. She explained that she was hosting a birthday for her 8-year-old son when the rain forced their backyard BBQ indoors. The power didn’t go out, but their air conditioner did. Unsure what was the issue, she called Novel Care.

After a few minutes, our operator informed Abby there was actually a technician nearby who could take a look. She just had this unit installed before the summer began and was certainly well within her warranty, so we were surprised to hear something had gone wrong. Our technician arrived within the hour and took a look at the unit – everything’s fine. No weird sounds, but no cool air either. The answer seemed almost too obvious at this point. Our man popped upstairs and gave a bit of a chuckle as he opened the vents in the living room, kitchen, and dining room. Naturally, someone at this birthday party had a sense of humour and closed up all the vents.

Now you might be thinking, why we didn’t ask this upfront when Abby first called, well, we’re not sure if you’ve ever hosted a birthday party for a dozen 8 year olds, but it’s not easy. Abby sounded pretty stressed out on the phone and the noise in the background was pretty clear that these little ones weren’t happy. Rather than ask her the basic questions we normally would, it was easier to dispatch our expert to check out the problem. At Novel Care, we believe that when it comes to cooling contractors in Toronto, customer service makes all the difference. It paid off for Abby, and our expert even scored a piece of ice cream cake for his troubles.

There’s no denying that the city of Toronto and the GTA can get humid and uncomfortable when the summer months come by. Our client Harpreet can attest to that. With a new dog under a year old and a baby on the way, his central air conditioning gave out just as the temperature began to climb. Harpreet eventually found us after a tedious search for heating and air conditioning in Toronto. We were glad to help in a hurry.

When Heating and Air Conditioning in Toronto Can’t Wait

Imagine the mercury rising, so you turn on your air conditioner. Only trouble is that it’s not quite as cool as you’d like. You tinker with the thermostat but nothing is working. Something is wrong. Add in the pup running around and a pregnant wife, and you can understand just how stressed out Harpreet was when he began his search for heating and air conditioning in Toronto. Thankfully, he found us soon after.

Once he explained the issue, we were able to dispatch someone to his home fairly quick. Our expert worked with Harpreet to explain what the issues were, and what kind of budget he had to work with. Thankfully, his budget wasn’t too strict since the unit was better off being replaced than repaired. We explained that there was a warranty in place with the new model, and Harpreet should feel comfortable giving us a call should anything go wrong.

Our expert recommended a central air conditioning unit that made sense for the size of the home. We were even able to schedule the installation a day later to ensure it was up and running when the heat kicked in that week. Harpreet followed up with us to say thank you and that his ac was running great. Oh, and his new baby girl was safe from the sticky summer temperatures.

Most people forget that winter lasts until March in Toronto and the GTA. So no matter how mild of a winter you’ve had, there’s always time for the cold to roll in and change everything. When the mercury dips below zero, your boiler or furnace keep you warm, but what if they didn’t? It’s good to know who to call when things go wrong. Emergency HVAC services make all the difference.  

There When You Need Us

Whether it’s the middle of the night or the beginning of the work day, Novel Care is there to help with emergency HVAC services. Our experts understand that furnaces and boilers rarely break down at a convenient time, so we’re ready to answer the call when you need heat. We’ll work with you to assess the situation and dispatch a professional to address any issues, no matter how late into the night you call.

Older Homes Are At Greater Risk In The Winter

Toronto and the GTA has no shortage of new condos being built, but it also has plenty of homes available too. While the newer ones might be built with energy efficiency in mind, older homes weren’t. Consider how much energy it takes to heat a home with an unfinished basement or poorly insulated attic. These homes aren’t held to the same standard, and that can cost you in two ways.

The first is that it can increase your energy bill. With your home not being able to properly store the heat, your furnace or boiler work a bit harder on those cold winter days. This brings us to our second expense; the need for repairs when things break down. Even if your furnace isn’t very old, freezing temperatures outside means you need more heat insider. Combined with a poorly insulated home, your furnace or boiler could be working overtime to keep you warm. That’s when things break. And that can leave you stranded at home in the middle of a cold winter night.

Take Better Care Of Your Furnace Or Boiler

  • Schedule a professional for maintenance
  • Keep an eye on that thermostat

Most homeowners are not professionals when it comes to boiler or furnace maintenance, and that’s okay! It is recommended you have a professional take a look once in a while though to see how your home is doing. The right professional can identify things before they break down and even make suggestions to catch problems before they happen.

The other simple and cost-effective way to save your furnace or boiler from the harsh winter months is to manage your thermostat. Turning it up a couple of degrees can save you from overdoing it when it’s cold out. Also, it never hurts to try your best to keep any vulnerable pipes properly insulated either to avoid frozen pipes. Additionally, you can ward off frozen pipes by keeping a small stream of water running on those especially frigid days, but that’s not very cost-effective.

Professional Emergency HVAC Services

Toronto and the GTA has plenty of self-proclaimed professionals available to offer their services for a cost. Trouble is, that cost may be more than a hit to your wallet. Hiring the wrong person to work on your furnace or boiler isn’t worth the hassle.

Good thing Novel Care is a name you can trust. Our HVAC experience spans over the last 30 years and that makes us a great choice for emergency HVAC services. We always strive to offer the help you deserve, right from the time we first answer your call. So remember, if winter strikes your furnace or boiler, contact us at 416-921-0000 for a real professional experience. We’ll even throw in a 22-point inspection of your furnace or boiler to stay ahead of any future problems you might encounter. This is all part of our way of taking care of our customers, all winter long.

Wouldn’t it be nice if all of our appliances lasted forever and worked perfectly all the time. We would save so much money and time fixing them. Unfortunately, this will never happen as all appliances are machines. Over time all machines break down, it’s that simple. Air conditioners are no different, which is why from time to time we experience air conditioner problems. Fortunately, some of our air conditioner problems are easy to understand, identify and even fix.

5 Common Air Conditioner Problems

  1. Cleanliness: It’s been a long time since you cleaned your air conditioner and now something is wrong with it. Air conditioning units needs to be cleaned fairly regularly, especially since they sit outside and are privy to all nature has to throw at them. Filters should be replaced regularly, evaporator and condenser coils should be cleaned at least once a year, and wiping down your air conditioner components is also helpful to maintain efficiency.
  2. Leaking Refrigerant: Refrigerant is the fluid inside your air conditioner that keeps things cold. If you find that you’re constantly adjusting the temperature slightly colder, there’s a good chance you have a leak. Refrigerant isn’t the safest liquid on the planet, so it’s probably best to call a professional HVAC technician from a company like Novel Care to take care of fixing it.
  3. Poor Drainage: Drainage issues are quite often the result of loose pipe connections or clogs. These clogs can result in water backing up into your unit and your house, which can cause expensive water damage if it’s not noticed quickly.
  4. Worn Out Controls or Sensors: Just like other electronics that get used all the time, these components can wear out and need replacing. Corrosion at terminals and on wires can cause issues for your system, so be sure to point out anything you see during service calls.
  5. Flipping A Switch: Lots of air conditioners have an option where the unit is connected to and indoor wall switch, for safety and ease of use. As the homeowner you know what that switch does, but not all of the visitors to your home know. This switch could have been accidentally flipped and turned your unit off.

Take a look at these things when you notice any air conditioner problems. For more information or to schedule a service appointment contact Novel Care today: 416-921-0000.

As the first heat wave of summer is upon us you’ll be relying on your air conditioner to keep your family cool and comfortable. When temperatures rise into the high 20s and 30s your air conditioner and HVAC system has to work even harder to maintain your specific temperature setting. Keeping your air conditioner and HVAC system is good working order is the best way to make sure it works when you need it to. There’s nothing worse than sitting through a heat wave while waiting for an HVAC professional to come and fix your air conditioner. Remember lots of people have air conditioners that break during heat waves so most HVAC companies, especially reputable ones like Novel Care, get booked up much quicker than they normally do.

4 Ways To Keep Your Air Conditioner Running

  1. Professional Air Conditioner Maintenance: In the spring, before summer is here, it’s important to have your air conditioner and HVAC system tuned up by a professional. It might not seem like a big deal, but it’s essential to have specific things done by a professional so your system is running as efficiently as possible. Some parts can be damaged if not cleaned properly, which is why a professional from a reputable company like Novel Care should be tasked with your air conditioner maintenance.
  2. Replace Your Air Filters: Your air conditioner and HVAC system might have one or more air filters that need to be changed or cleaned on a regular basis. This is one of the easiest things that you can do to maintain the efficiency of your air conditioner and HVAC system. Replacing the filter also helps to reduce the amount of dust, pollen and other allergens in your home. Overall, a clean HVAC filter ensures that all the internal parts of your system are dust free and clean.
  3. Stop Tinkering With Your Thermostat: Find a comfortable temperature for your home and then leave your thermostat alone. Once you find that temperature it’s important to set it for times during the day when you’re actually home. When you’re not home set your thermostat to maintain a higher temperature so it uses less energy. A programmable thermostat should only be adjusted if your habits change and you find yourself home during an irregular time. Overall, once you set it the less you tamper with it means that your air conditioner and HVAC system will run more efficiently.
  4. Cover Your Windows: Blinds, shades, curtains or any other type of window covering help keep the sun out during the day when it’s very hot. When the sun shines through a window it turns your home into a fishbowl and super-heats the air. As a result your air conditioner has to work extra hard to cool your home. Planting trees and other foliage in your yard to block the sun can also help.
