Award Winning Ottawa Cooling Solutions – Air Conditioner Installation, Repair and Maintenance

Choosing the right air conditioning solutions is an important thing as there are several different air conditioning systems and ways of delivering this cooling effect in your house or room.

Today, every new air conditioning unit is given an efficiency rating, called a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating), and If your central air conditioning unit is more than 12 years old, replacing it with an ENERGY STAR qualified model could cut your cooling costs by 30%. The most significant aspect in deciding on an air conditioner may be the square footage of the particular space you would like to cool. This is going to directly impact how many BTUs (British Thermal Units) you will need. (BTUs are the unit in which an air conditioner’s output is measured. As BTUs increase, so will price and dimension of the system.)

An air conditioning unit that is too small for your room or house will simply not be able to do its job and you will never be satisfied with the room temperature.

There are basically several air conditioning solutions you can choose from:

  • Central Air – Usually using the furnace’s existing duct system to spread the air throughout the house.
  • Portable air conditioners – the cheap and easy solutions but heavy on electricity, noisy and only good for one room.
  • Ductless Air Conditioners or Split systems – These are basically units built without ducts and designed to go through a wall, having vents and heat sinks both inside and outside.

A new air conditioning unit could end up saving you up to 50% on your utility bill for cooling. Faulty air conditioning system can be frustrating and annoying at times when summer heat is at its peak.

You want to make sure now that you air conditioning system is working properly before the heat arrives and you start sweating – so call us today for a new unit or maybe service the old one.

5 Signs You Need Air Conditioning Installation

Your air conditioner will start giving you small signs that it’s failing. Here are five of the most typical ones.

  1. You regularly need repairs. As your air conditioner ages, its energy efficiency goes down and more prone to breakdowns. If we’re regularly at your residence for air conditioning repairs, it might be time for a new air conditioner.
  2. Repairs are more than half the cost of a new air conditioner. Repairs swiftly add up. When they’re greater than half the cost of a new air conditioner, it’s recommended to replace yours.
  3. Your air conditioner is older than 15 years old. With annual air conditioning maintenance, your cooling system could work for 20 years. However, it’s recommended to start prepping for replacement close to the 15-year mark so it’s not a shock.
  4. Your air conditioner has R22 refrigerant. If your air conditioner was purchased earlier than 2010, it likely has R22 refrigerant. This refrigerant is discontinued as a result of its damaging effects on the ozone layer. Since R22 has been discontinued, fixing a refrigerant leak would be very expensive.
  5. You want to cut your cooling bills. Installing an ENERGY STAR® air conditioner and pairing it with a smart thermostat is a smart method to conserve on energy bills. Even if you’re replacing an air conditioner that’s only 10 years old, the Department of Energy says a more efficient air conditioner could save you 20–40% on cooling expenses.

At Oria Heating and Cooling our Experts will partner with you to select the right model for your needs.

We understand that needing a new air conditioner can be a crisis you’re not totally financially prepped for. That’s why we offer flexible financing. For just one low monthly fee, you’ll get a new air conditioner. You won’t have to have a down payment, and installation costs, annual maintenance and repairs are all included.

Common Problems with Air Conditioning Systems

These are some of the most frequent troubles with AC systems. You might be able to take care of some of these troubleshooting tasks on yourself rather than paying for an air conditioner repair. However, you should contact us if your air conditioner is leaking refrigerant or making unusual noises.

  • Air conditioner won’t turn on. Make sure the thermostat is properly set before checking the electrical panel for a tripped breaker. If the breaker is tripped, it may not require a repair call.
  • Air isn’t cold. Double check that thermostat settings are on the right temperature and that your thermostat has power. Then replace the air filter, if you haven’t done this in the past few months. A fresh air filter can increase efficiency and indoor air quality. Make sure the outdoor unit isn’t obstructed by debris and that it isn’t leaking refrigerant. If you locate a refrigerant leak, contact us for repair. If your air conditioner was purchased prior to 2011, it possibly uses a hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC) refrigerant referred to as Freon®, or R-22. This refrigerant is no longer being produced due to its damaging effects on the ozone layer. As only limited, recycled quantities are available, solving a R-22 refrigerant leak can be expensive. We typically advise air conditioning installation in this situation.
  • Uneven cooling. Uneven cooling may not require an ac repair ticket and instead might require unique solutions. Fluctuating temperatures or humidity that’s imbalanced are often caused by leaky ducts, not enough insulation, or blocked registers. If none of those things are creating the problem, consider adding blackout curtains on south-facing windows. We can also install a zoning system to regulate temperatures in distinct rooms. As another option, a mini-split heat pump with variable refrigerant flow can resolve heating and cooling troubles in areas that appear uncomfortable.
  • Water dripping from air conditioning unit. Inspect the condensate line for clogs. This is the PVC pipe going out of the air conditioner. Leaking refrigerant can also cause ice to build up on the coils and drip water. AC service will be necessary to fully repair your ac system if it is encapsulated in ice and this situation should be considered an emergency ac repair.
  • Air conditioner is making strange noises. Screeching, clanging, banging or clicking sounds signal potentially serious problems. If you’re noticing weird air conditioner noises, shut it off and call Oria Heating and Cooling for a professional ac repair.

If these troubleshooting tips don’t fix the issue, the Oria Heating and Cooling team is ready to assist you.

Was supposed to get a duct cleaning when the crew arrived. Unfortunately.my AC condenser broke and leaked into the furnace. Nasir and his team promptly show me everything step by step and unfortunately had to recommend a new furnace. They were back the next day fixed fhe AC leak and installed a new furnace and duct work.

We had a great experience with Oria Heating and Cooling. Our air conditioner stopped working during a warm day. The technician was at our house within a couple of hours. He quickly diagnosed the issue and resolved it that same day. He went out of his way to test our cooling system and found our thermostat was improperly wired which he quickly fixed for us. That attention to detail is very rare to find.We were very pleased with the service and would absolutely recommend them.

Oria Heating and Cooling provided great pricing for installation of a new furnace and air conditioning system. The crew arrived on time, did high quality and detailed work, and left the site clean. They took the time to explain all the work that was done, how the new systems functioned, best maintenance practices, and answered all my questions. I highly recommend this company.

I've turned to Oria Heating and Cooling twice now and twice I have had excellent service and very positive encounters on both occasions. The owner takes the time to listen and to provide good advice for our home's HVAC system. Everyone on his team was professional and friendly. This month, they installed a whole new AC for me in just a few hours, and in doing so even took the time to figure out why my humidifier hadn't been working for years now! Now I can look forward to cool temps this summer, and not drying out the air in my home so much when it is time to start running the furnace again in the fall.

Mansoor and his team installed a new furnace, ac and humidifier at my place recently. The team was working simultaneously to ensure all work was done in an effecient manner. The old furnace and ac were removed and all scrap was cleared by the guys. Before the installation date Mansoor had come by to have a look at the existing system and gave me advice on what would be a good setup. He was honest and upfront about the cost. The quote that he gave me and which we discussed was exactly what was charged, no hidden costs. His team also installed a new thermostat which I had bought and he showed me the functionality and how I can control it. Mansoor came by again the next day to check up on the furnace and also gave me a walkthrough of the work that was done and how to operate the new equipment. Mansoor and his team, Kody, Mikey, Cole, Aaron and Hisham, are highly recommended. Thanks guys.
