What to look for when choosing a heating & air conditioning contractor

People often fret over the brand of furnace to buy, but the contractor you choose is every bit as important. Not only is the quality of the workmanship and installation crucial to the furnace's lifespan, the company you choose will be relied on for future servicing and warranty coverage.

Always choose an established company that has:

  • Good, independently-verified feedback
  • A solid track record and no outstanding disputes
  • Verified insurance, licenses, and certifications
  • Experienced staff, with manufacturer training
  • Registered to offer rebates

Checking all of these things is difficult and time-consuming.

That's why we've already done it for you!

Purchasing a High-Efficiency Central A/C

Choosing to upgrade to a high-efficiency central air conditioner will allow you to stay cool while saving money on your home energy bills this summer. All central A/C models sold in Canada have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) sticker which indicates the energy-efficiency of the unit. The higher the SEER, the greater the energy-efficiency you can expect. Central air conditioners range in efficiency from 13-20+ SEER.

Before you purchase a central air conditioner unit for your home, it’s important to have a licensed HVAC contractor determine the correct size of central air conditioner model you require to efficiently cool your home. Proper sizing is critical because if the central A/C system is too small the unit will not be able to keep up with the cooling demands of your home and you will experience frequent on and off cycling of the unit. Too large and it will not be able to extract the humidity from the air properly.

Proper installation of your central A/C system is essential to ensure that it can achieve optimal cooling of your home. Proper fit of the indoor coil can be a challenge and impact the installation costs. The quality of your indoor coil will also impact the overall efficiency of your unit, so it’s important to ensure that the quality of coil is good.

High-Efficiency A/C Pricing

Hamilton consumers can expect to pay roughly $3000 – $4800 for a new, high-efficiency central A/C unit. Factors that affect central A/C pricing include brand, model, size, installation, the region you live in and the furnace company you choose.

It’s best to not always choose the absolute lowest price you find. Also important to consider is the reputability of the company, the quality of the installation, as well as the ongoing support in case servicing is needed. So be wary of prices that are well below this range.

Financing Options
