Choosing the right air conditioner in Ottawa

The sheer number of options to consider when choosing the air conditioner that’s right for your space can seem daunting if you don’t know what to look for. But that’s why we’re here – Call on Reliance™ and we’ll guide you through the process of choosing the right AC system to keep you and your family cool this summer while keeping your budget and energy consumption in check.

Here are some key things to consider:

Home Size and Location
The amount of sun (heat) your home receives, the direction it faces and the size of the space you wish to cool are key when evaluating the best air conditioning system to keep your home cool.

Insulation/Air Tightness
The height of ceilings, the thickness of windows and the materials that make up the wall assembly, play a significant role in keeping the cold in and the heat out during hot Ottawa summers. These and other structural details will be determining factors when choosing the size and power of the AC unit that’s best for your home.

Energy Efficiency
Energy consumption and costs are important considerations when choosing the right AC unit. Checking the energy efficiency of an air conditioning system (SEER) is important when evaluating the best system for your home. The higher the SEER rating, the less energy the unit needs to reach and maintain your ideal temperature and the lower your energy costs will be.

Air-Conditioning FAQs

There are lots of benefits to both buying and renting an air conditioner unit, but it depends on your specific needs.

Get some insights on how to decide what’s the best option for you here.

The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) measures the cooling and heat pump efficiency of your air conditioning unit. Ratings range from 13-21. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the AC unit.

Keeping your air conditioner working at its best for a longer period requires regular maintenance and the occasional tune-up.
