After the recent heat dome that settled over much of western Canada, many folks have found themselves wishing they had a better way to stay cool. If you found yourself thinking that an air conditioner might be a really good idea about now, here’s how to keep your cool when the mercury goes sky-high.
Tailored to fit
No matter when your house was built or whether it has existing ducting or not, there’s a system to suit your needs, says Vern Milani of Milani Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning. More importantly, there’s a system that can be tailored to fit your home, whether you want air conditioning in every room, or just one, or even only when you need it!
Most air conditioning systems take about two days to install, and can include a variety of options, including heat pumps and mini-split systems.
- Heat pumps can use the existing ducting in your home, and require an outside compressor. These units can keep your whole house cooler in the summer, and warmer in the winter, providing year-round comfort.
- Ductless mini-split systems are just what they sound like – each room that requires cooling gets its own unit and allows you to only cool the space you need to as you use it, for an environmentally friendly and wallet-friendly option. These systems are ideal if your home has no existing ducting, meaning less in the way of renovation and mess. Mini-split systems can heat your home in the winter too, and are more efficient than electric baseboard heaters, meaning you save money.
