How do I know if my HVAC system is working properly?
If you do not notice any issues with your HVAC system, chances are it’s working properly. However, if you notice any of the following signs, it might signify a problem: rooms in your home are uneven temperatures, problems with the humidity levels, a rattling or buzzing sound coming from your furnace, or an unexplained spike in your utility bills. If these signs sound familiar, or you want peace of mind knowing your HVAC system is working as it should, contact Anchor Home Comfort. We will send a certified technician to inspect the HVAC system in your home right away. We even have a 24/7 emergency line, and there is no extra charge for emergency, weekend, holiday, or after hours service calls. During the maintenance service, your technician will do the following: inspect the thermostat and heating system and calibrate it as needed, lubricate all moving parts in the system to decrease friction, check the air filter, clean it, and replace it if necessary, test the system’s safety controls and startup cycle, and complete a written analysis of their findings.
How often does my HVAC system need maintenance?
Ottawa homeowners should book a maintenance service for their HVAC system once a year.
Maintenance services, like those offered by Anchor Home Comfort, are preventative. They are one of the most effective ways of not only ensuring your HVAC system is functioning optimally but also of preserving your system. Having your air conditioner, furnace, heat pump, or whatever units you use, annually assessed by a professional has so many benefits. Extending the lifespans of your HVAC units, making your system more energy efficient, and saving you money down the line are just three advantages of scheduling an HVAC maintenance service.
When should I change my HVAC system?
Modern HVAC systems last anywhere from 10 to 20 years in Ottawa. Therefore, you may only need to replace your HVAC units every few decades. However, age is not the only factor that determines when an HVAC system should be changed. There are several telltale signs that your HVAC system should be replaced, such as if the rooms in your home are heating or cooling unevenly or your monthly energy bills have risen but your usage has remained the same. Ultimately, if you think your HVAC system is nearing the end of its life, we recommend contacting a professional. A reputable HVAC company like Anchor Home Comfort will be able to assess your system and offer their professional opinion on whether it’s worth replacing. Please note that Anchor Home comfort offers same-day and next-day installations of HVAC systems in Ottawa.
How much does HVAC cost in Ottawa?
This question is impossible to answer as there are so many different HVAC services available to Ottawa residents. For example, the cost of installing a central air conditioner isn’t the same as repairing a furnace or heat pump. The type of service – whether it be an installation, repair, replacement, or maintenance – as well as the type of unit (heat pump, furnace, air conditioner, boiler, etc.) are two factors that will determine the cost. Other factors that will impact how much your HVAC service costs include the size of your home, the age and condition of your home’s existing ductwork (if applicable), and the extent of the problem (in the case of repairs). The best way to find out the price of an HVAC service in Ottawa, Ontario is to request a quote from Anchor Home Comfort.
How much is a new furnace and air conditioner installed in Ottawa?

Which is more expensive: A/C or furnace?
This is another difficult question to answer as so many factors determine the cost of air conditioners and furnaces. Generally speaking, the cost of installing an air conditioner and a furnace are similar.
When should the heat be turned on in Ottawa?
As a homeowner, it’s up to you to decide when to turn your heat on. In essence, when your home’s temperature is uncomfortably cold, that’s likely a sign to switch your heating system on. According to the World Health Organization, the ideal indoor temperature is between 18 and 21 degrees Celsius.
How are homes heated in Ottawa?
The majority of homes in Canada are heated by furnaces. Of these, some use oil or propane-based furnaces, but most are natural gas-based. While most homes are heated by some type of furnace, you may find other heating methods in Ottawa homes, such as baseboard heaters, solar heaters, heat pumps, and boilers.
When should my heating system be serviced?
The heating system in your Ottawa home should be serviced once a year. Whether you notice a problem with it or not, scheduling a maintenance service offers many benefits. For example, preventative maintenance checks will not only ensure your heating system is functioning as it should, but also may increase the energy efficiency of your system and extend the life of your heating system, saving you money in the future. Other situations in which your heating system should be serviced include if you hear a buzzing or rattling sound coming from it, if you notice visible rust or cracks on its surface, if your system is only blowing cool air, or if rooms in your home are heating unevenly. In a heating (or cooling) emergency, call Anchor Home Comfort right away. We are pleased to offer 24/7 furnace and air conditioner repairs to Ottawa residents, with no extra charge for weekend, holiday, after hours, or emergency service calls.
What is involved in heating maintenance?
The purpose of a heating maintenance service is to assess your heating system and ensure it’s functioning at its maximum capacity. When you book a heating maintenance service with Anchor Home Comfort, you can expect your technician to do the following: inspect the thermostat and heating system and calibrate it as needed, lubricate all moving parts in the system 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.
How long do A/C units last?
The lifespan of air conditioners depends on the age of the unit. If your Ottawa home has an older AC unit, it may only last between 10 and 12 years. In contrast, if your home is outfitted with a new, modern AC unit, it is more likely to last between 15 and 20 years. New units are designed to last longer than older ones. Ultimately, if you are thinking of replacing your old air conditioner with a new one, Anchor Home Comfort can help. We offer air conditioner repairs, installations, and replacements. Our expert technicians can also help you choose a model that’s right for your home.
It’s worth noting that to ensure your air conditioner lives a full life, even one beyond 20 years, annual maintenance services are key. Anchor Home Comfort offers some of the most thorough air conditioning maintenance services in the Ottawa region. During your air conditioner maintenance appointment, one of our fully licensed and certified technicians will check and clean the fan compartments, adjust blower operations and replace the belt if necessary, check the plenum and seal for air leakage as well as the fuse/break and electrical panel, adjust the plenum dampers if necessary, water test the condensate pump, check for the proper temperature across the evaporator coil, ensure the outdoor unit is level and clean it, check freon levels, and tighten all electrical connections.
How often should a furnace be replaced?
Like air conditioning units, modern furnaces are designed to last between 10 and 20 years. Therefore, you likely won’t need to replace your furnace before it reaches this age. Other signs your Ottawa furnace might need to be replaced are if the rooms in your home are heating unevenly, your utility bills have risen without explanation, you notice visible rust or cracks on your existing furnace, you’re experiencing humidity problems in your home, or you hear a buzzing or rattling sound coming from your furnace. If any of these signs sound familiar, it could indicate a problem and you might be better off replacing your furnace. If you aren’t sure whether it’s time for a new furnace, get in touch with Anchor Home Comfort. We can answer your questions about how often furnaces should be replaced and even send a technician to your home to inspect your furnace. Please note that Anchor Home Comfort offers same-day and next-day installations of both heating and cooling systems in Ottawa.
How much does it cost to install central air in Ottawa?
Many Ottawa homeowners prefer central air conditioners. Unlike their window or portable counterparts, central air conditioning tends to be more effective. With Ottawa summers only getting hotter, air conditioning isn’t just a luxury anymore. If you’re thinking of installing central air conditioning in your Ottawa home, you’re probably wondering how much it’s going to cost. The cost of installing central air ultimately depends on several key factors, such as the size and layout of your home, the age and condition of your home’s existing ductwork, and the size and model of air conditioning unit you buy. Beyond the cost of installing a central AC unit in your Ottawa home, you should also budget for the cost of running the unit. However, if you’re replacing an older central air conditioner with a new model, then your monthly energy bills may actually decrease owing to greater energy efficiency. Overall, the best way to find out the cost of installing a central A/C unit in your Ottawa home is to request a free quote from Anchor Home Comfort.

“Billy was great. Very professional, he really went the extra mile to ensure my heating was up and running, and even did some general maintenance on the furnace to ensure future problems wouldn’t crop up. This was far better service than I’ve received from other local furnace repair providers.“
