Frequently Asked Questions

  • My Air Conditioner Is Blowing Warm Air, What Should I Do?
    In most cases, if your air-conditioner is blowing warm air, there could be a problem with the outside compressor in the heat pump or air-conditioner, or an issue with the refrigerant pressures. If you’ve checked that your thermostat is set to Cool and that your electrical supply is working, it’s time to Schedule a Service Call so we can send an HVAC technician to get your air conditioner blowing ice cold air again!
  • My Furnace Is Blowing Cold Air, What Should I Do?
    In most cases, if your electric furnace or gas furnace is blowing cold air, there could be a problem with the electric heater inside the furnace, or with the signal between your thermostat and your furnace. If you’ve checked that your thermostat is set to Heat and that your electrical supply is working, it’s time to Schedule a Service Call so we can send an HVAC technician to get your furnace blowing hot air again!
  • How Much Does a New Furnace and Heat Pump Cost?
    When installing a new heat pump, air conditioner, or furnace, there are many factors which can affect the final price of such an installation. Here are the most common factors: The Brand and Model of the Equipment: All systems are not created equal. Superior systems will consume less energy, operate at lower sound levels, be made of higher-quality and durable components, and be able to achieve a higher overall home comfort for you and your family. Technical Requirements: Your homes’ square footage, year of construction, insulation level, design considerations, and existing duct work will all influence the type of system and labour required to install a new heating and air conditioning system. Optional Accessories: Depending on your homes’ characteristics, it may be necessary to install a central humidifier, air exchanger, snow guard, or condensate pump.

  • Are There Any Government Programs Available?
    Yes, the Renoclimat and Chauffez-Vert programs are in effect, meaning you can receive subsidies for installing a new heat pump system after meeting the requirements of the program. Our experts can walk you through all the necessary steps to make sure you’re able to take full advantage of these programs and any others which become available.
  • Which Licenses Should I Look for Before Trusting a Company to Do Work for Me?
    Companies which are involved in the installation, repair, and maintenance of heating and air conditioning equipment in the province of Quebec must be licensed under the corresponding categories by the CMMTQ and the RBQ.
  • How Do I save on My Heating Bill?
    The first thing to consider when it comes to reducing your energy bill is what type of equipment you currently have. Having a heat pump instead of an air-conditioner can reduce your energy bill significantly. Similarly, having an electric furnace instead of an oil furnace can also greatly reduce your energy bill. In order to maximize your energy savings when it comes to your homes’ heating system, a system should also be Energy Star rated, have a high HSPF rating, be properly sized for your home, and be in-line with current energy efficiency standards. The equipment should also be regularly maintained, to keep the equipment running smoothly and reduce unnecessary energy consumption. Advances in technology have led to even more efficient heat pumps, furnaces, and thermostats.

  • I Have One Bedroom Which Is Always Too Hot or Too Cold Compared to the Rest of My Home, What Can I Do?
    This is a very common problem, especially in two-story homes which are heated and cooled by one main central system. Very often the issue lies with the heat load of the given space, which is higher or lower than the rest of the home. The first step is to ensure the existing system is working at its full potential. An HVAC technician can test the system’s performance by checking the refrigerant levels, the furnace blower performance, and overall air flow. In most cases, once we have finished performing the system’s general maintenance, we can improve the rooms’ comfort to some degree, and make some recommendations for the future. In some cases, the duct work is insufficient and must be modified or upgraded. In other cases, the equipment is not properly sized when it was installed. Finally, some situations are best solved by installing an independent ductless unit, which can heat or cool a room separately from the main central HVAC system.

  • Do I Need a Humidifier in My Home?
    Health Canada recommends a homes’ relative humidity should be between 30-55% in the winter. Most homes need a humidifier in order to stay in this range during the winter, due to our cold climate.
