Which Cooling System Is Right For You? 

Air conditioners come in many different shapes, sizes, and functions including central air conditioners, ductless air conditioners, and ductless heat pumps. The experts at HAMCO are here to help you make the right decision for your home!  

Central Air Conditioners

Central air conditioners are the most popular option for homes in Hamilton and its surrounding area. They work with the home’s existing ductwork and furnace to send cool air throughout the home through vent registers. With one part of the unit outside and the other installed above your furnace, if your home is already fitted with ductwork, usually central air conditioners are the way to go.

Ductless Air Conditioners 

Ductless air conditioners are installed with one exterior unit in the backyard or the side of the home, a series of ceiling or wall-mounted indoor units to disperse the cool air. Ductless air conditioners allow you to choose the temperature of each individual room, creating cool zones in the home. If your home doesn’t have existing ductwork, or you wish to individually control the temperature of each room, a ductless air conditioner may be right for you!

Ductless Heat Pumps 

While the name may suggest that they only provide heating, heat pumps are incredible HVAC systems because they provide both heating and cooling from the same unit. If you don’t have existing ductwork, it may be in your best interest to look into installing a ductless heat pump for your home. These systems are extremely efficient and can significantly reduce your utility bills.

Replacing Vs Repairing Your Air Conditioner

Most air conditioners have a lifespan between ten to fifteen years. Once your air conditioner begins to age, you’ll start seeing the effects of wear and tear on the system. If your air conditioner is frequently requiring repairs, it may be more cost-effective to replace it with a new and more efficient unit. 

Signs that it may be time to invest in a new air conditioner include: 

  • Your air conditioner is over fifteen years of age 
  • Your air conditioner is requiring constant repair and maintenance
  • Your air conditioner is emitting strange sounds 
  • You’ve noticed a significant rise in your energy bills 
  • Your air conditioner isn’t effectively cooling your home anymore 
  • You’ve noticed uneven cooling in your home

Air Conditioner Financing 

Regardless of if you choose to replace your air conditioner because your old system is becoming obsolete or because you wish to have a more energy-efficient model, purchasing an air conditioner upfront can be very costly.

HAMCO has partnered with Vista Financing to ensure our customers can find an air conditioner payment plan that fits their budget. With multiple financing plans and options available, you can rest assured knowing that you’re improving your home comfort without breaking the bank.

The Best SEER Rating For An Air Conditioner 

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, which is how Canadians measure how energy efficient their HVAC system is. Essentially, a SEER rating is determined by the air conditioner’s cooling capacity and how much power the unit needs to reach said capacity. It’s very easy to see how efficient your air conditioner is with this simple equation:

The goal when purchasing an air conditioner is to find the highest SEER rating possible for your budget and size, because the higher the SEER rating, the more energy-efficient and cost-effective the air conditioner will be. 

How To Determine The Right-Sized Air Conditioner For Your Home

The best way to determine the perfect air conditioner size for your home is to call for one of the expert technicians at HAMCO to assess your house and give you a professional opinion. When visiting your home, the technician will consider these factors: 

  • The square footage of your home 
  • Existing ductwork
  • Current/future layout of your home
  • Age of the home 
  • Direct sun exposure to the house 
  • Quality and number of windows

The Daikin Fit 

At HAMCO, one of our favourite and best-selling air conditioners is the Daikin Fit. While still providing full-force home comfort, the Daikin Fit is also the smallest model available with an incredibly compact design. As such a small system, the Daikin Fit can be placed in many different spaces including backyards, balconies, and rooftops where a traditional air conditioner may be too large. With a variable-speed fan, high-efficiency production with minimal sound, it’s no wonder that so many HAMCO customers have decided to install the Daikin Fit in their homes!
