What is an HVAC System?

HVAC is an acronym that stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. The term refers to the various systems used to move air between indoor and outdoor areas in buildings, as well as to cool and heat buildings. HVAC systems are standard in Ontario homes, given the extreme weather the province experienced. Therefore, your Vaughan home likely has several HVAC units in it already. Types of HVAC systems vary but may include heat pumps, boilers, water heaters, furnaces, and air conditioners. No matter which one you have in your Vaughan home, the purpose is the same – to provide comfort. With an HVAC system like a furnace or air conditioner in your home, you can gain greater control over the temperature, airflow, and humidity levels on your property.

What Should I Look for in an HVAC System?

If you’re purchasing a brand new HVAC system in Vaughan, we recommend evaluating potential units based on the following criteria: energy efficiency, capacity, maintenance requirements, noise level, cost, and thermostat compatibility. With these six factors in mind, you can quickly determine your top priorities, helping you find a system that meets your needs and preferences.

How Do I Know When My HVAC Needs Maintenance?

There are two ways for Vaughan homeowners to tell that their HVAC system needs maintenance. The first is the length of time since its last tune-up. Experts generally recommend booking annual maintenance services for your HVAC system. Therefore, if it’s been over a year since your last tune-up, it’s likely time to schedule an appointment. The other way to know if your HVAC system needs maintenance is if it’s acting up or exhibiting any of the telltale signs of a problem. The most common signs indicating your HVAC system needs maintenance are as follows: a buzzing or rattling sound coming from the system, visible rust or cracks on the system’s surface, your furnace only blowing cool air or your air conditioner only blowing warm air, humidity levels that are off in your home, rooms heating unevenly, or an unexpected rise in your utility bills. If you’ve started to notice any of these signs, we suggest giving us a call right away. We’ll send an AtlasCare technician to your home to assess your system. Know that in any type of HVAC emergency, whether major or minor, you can always call AtlasCare. We are proud to offer 24/7 furnace and air conditioner repairs to Vaughan residents, with no hidden fees or costs for weekend, holiday, after hours, or emergency service calls.

Should I Schedule Preventative Maintenance Prior to a New HVAC Installation?

If you aren’t sure whether your existing HVAC system is at the end of its left, we recommend booking a preventative maintenance service. For a preventative maintenance service with AtlasCare, a technician will come to your home and assess your HVAC system. During the appointment, they will inspect the thermostat, air conditioner, and heating system and calibrate them as needed, lubricate all moving parts in the systems to decrease friction, check the air filter, cleaning and replacing it if necessary, test the unit’s safety controls and startup cycle, and finally, complete a written analysis of the service’s findings. Ultimately, a preventative maintenance appointment can help you determine whether your existing HVAC system is worth replacing or simply in need of a repair or more regular tune-ups.

How Long Does it Take for a New HVAC System to be Installed?

The time it takes to install a new HVAC system varies based on the type of HVAC unit being installed and whether the new system is replacing an existing system or not. Generally, Vaughan homeowners should expect an HVAC installation to take between four and eight hours.

How Much Does a New HVAC Installation Cost in Vaughan?

HVAC installation in Vaughan, Ontario varies in price as it depends on several factors. First, the type of HVAC system you’re installing affects the cost. The price of installing heat pumps, water heaters, boilers, air conditioners, and furnaces is not all the same. Prices can even vary between the same types of units, as certain units may be more complicated to install than others. The size of your Vaughan home and the age and condition of its ductwork can also impact the cost of installation. If you’re curious to find out how much an HVAC installation will cost you in Vaughan, the best way to find out is by contacting AtlasCare for a free quote. We are pleased to offer complimentary quotes on HVAC installations to all Vaughan residents.

Which is More Expensive: Air Conditioner or Furnace?

Many factors determine the cost of air conditioners and furnaces, therefore it’s impossible to answer which is more expensive without more information. For example, the size of your home, its existing ductwork, the make and model of the HVAC unit you choose, and the type of air conditioner or furnace you’re having installed can all impact the price. That said, the average price of installing air conditioners and furnaces in Vaughan is comparable.

When Should the Heat Be Turned On In Vaughan?

Vaughan homeowners can decide when they wish to turn on the heating systems in their homes. While the World Health Organization lists the ideal indoor temperature as between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius, this is just a recommendation. Therefore, anytime your home feels uncomfortably cold, whether it’s the beginning of September or the end of October, you shouldn’t hesitate to turn the heat on.

How Are Homes Heated in Vaughan?

Most Vaughan homes are heated by furnaces (furnaces are the most popular residential heating method in Canada). However, some Vaughan homes may be heated by alternative heating systems like baseboard heaters, solar heaters, heat pumps, and boilers. It’s also worth noting that there are different types of furnaces. Natural gas-based furnaces are the most common in Vaughan, but propane and oil-based furnaces also exist.

Providing You With Answers & Solutions
  • Air conditioners vs. furnaces: Which is more expensive?

    The price to purchase and install a new furnace or AC unit is relatively similar. However, it’s important to look past your initial investment by budgeting for the costs of operation and maintenance. Generally, furnaces will be more expensive to maintain than air conditioners because they require more energy to heat your home, resulting in higher energy bills.

  • What size furnace do I need for a 1,500 sq. ft. home?

    If your residential property is approximately 1,500 square feet in size, you’ll need a furnace with an output of 40,000-90,000 BTUs (British thermal units) to distribute adequate heat throughout your home. Our HVAC experts can inspect your property and recommend a suitable furnace size based on your preferences and budget!

  • How much does it cost to install a new furnace or AC unit?

    The cost of installing a new furnace or air conditioner in your home will depend on the size of your home, the type of unit you buy, and the age and condition of your home’s ductwork. For your convenience, AtlasCare offers detailed estimates and same-day installation for furnaces and AC units!

  • How long do furnaces last in Oakville?

    The exact lifespan of your furnace will depend on certain factors, including the type of furnace, the size of your home, and maintenance frequency. Scheduling regular maintenance from a licenced technician is key to extending your furnace’s lifespan. In Oakville’s climate, gas furnaces typically last around 15-20 years, while electric units can last up to 30 years with proper care.

    At AtlasCare, our seasoned professionals offer preventative maintenance plans to extend the longevity of your unit and keep your furnace operating at its best!

  • How much does HVAC cost?

    The cost of residential HVAC services varies significantly between homeowners, making it tricky to put a price tag on heating and cooling services. For example, the cost of replacing an air conditioner or furnace is different from installing a boiler or ductless mini-split system. The total cost will depend on several factors, including:

    • The type of service (installation, repair, or maintenance)
    • The type and quality of the product
    • The complexity of the project
    • The size of your home
    • Past maintenance frequency
    • Any existing damage to your property

    Keep in mind that the upfront investment is just one part of HVAC costs. While it’s important to consider the price of installation, it’s equally important to budget for long-term operation and maintenance costs.

    At AtlasCare, we offer detailed estimates to give you a better understanding of pricing based on your property’s unique specifications.
