Adding a heat pump to a ductless air conditioner also lets you heat and cool your home year-round with just one HVAC system.

What Else to Consider Before Buying an Air Conditioner

Get your ducts and vents cleaned first

Before installing a new air conditioner, you should have any dust and debris in your ventilation system removed to ensure optimal performance of your new cooling equipment.

Don’t forget about indoor air quality

To make the air inside your home safer and cleaner, consider adding a HEPA air filtration system, ultraviolet (UV) light system or ventilator as part of your air conditioning upgrade.

Consider replacing your furnace, too

If you’re replacing an AC unit that’s more than 15 years old, consider upgrading your furnace at the same time to ensure all your equipment is compatible. Newer units include variable speed motors that consume less electricity and are they are quieter, too.

Common Questions About Buying a New Air Conditioner

A new high-efficiency central air conditioner in Ontario usually costs $3,500 to $6,000. With Enercare, you pay the price — no hidden charges — with installation by a fully insured and licensed company and a warranty of at least one year included. The cost of a new air conditioner for your home depends on four things:

  1. Technical requirements including the size of your home, floor plan, number of stories, existing ductwork and cooling load
  2. preferences such as energy efficiency, sound output, air filtration sizes (which depend on allergies or other sensitivities) and comfort-enhancing options
  3. Personal choices such as extended warranties, maintenance plans and guarantees
  4. Code requirements including safety, licensing and building code requirements

Several factors affect the size of the unit you need, including the size and age of your home, air flow, insulation and how many windows and doors you have. To make sure you get the right-sized unit for your needs, it’s crucial to have a professional evaluate your home and calculate heat loss and air flow. Incorrect AC sizing may reduce the lifespan of your unit and lead to higher utility costs because your home is not cooling down properly.

 

The average lifecycle of an air conditioner is 15 years, but age isn’t the only consideration. If your system breaks down frequently, was installed poorly or isn’t the right size for your home, it could wear out faster and need replacement earlier.

 

Yes, if you have a central air conditioner. The air conditioner works with the furnace fan to transfer cool air throughout the home. We recommend that you change or clean your furnace filter every three months.
