Ways to Save on Your Energy Bills 


Toronto's high energy costs have long been a cause for concern. The issue became a national talking point in 2017 when the Fraser Institute released a report that evaluated electricity price growth in Ontario. The researchers discovered that Toronto residents paid an average of $201 a month on energy costs, which was $60 more than other major Canadian cities. Fortunately, you don't have to move out of Toronto to reduce your energy bills. Instead, incorporate some of A-Plus Quality’s, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, strategies to lower your energy costs.

Follow an HVAC Maintenance Schedule
Regular maintenance is considered one of the essential HVAC services in Toronto. Maintenance can lower your system's energy consumption by as much as 15 percent, significantly reducing your bill. You handle some necessary maintenance tasks, such as changing the air filters and cleaning the coils. However, you'll need a professional service technician for more advanced tasks, including checking for leaks, oiling motors, and tightening connections.

Use a Smart Thermostat
A smart thermostat learns the temperature you prefer and keeps it there when you're at home and awake. When you go to sleep or leave home, it changes the temperature to use less energy. You don't relinquish full control, though, since you can also change the temperature from your tablet, computer, or smartphone. Choose an ENERGY STAR qualified thermostat for the most savings. An ENERGY STAR connected thermostat can reduce your HVAC system's energy consumption by at least eight percent.

Upgrade to an ENERGY STAR Qualified HVAC System
Upgrading to an ENERGY STAR qualified HVAC system can dramatically reduce your energy bills. For example, ENERGY STAR air conditioners use 30-40 percent less energy than the units sold a decade ago. Unit upgrades are among the most popular HVAC services in Toronto for individuals who want to reduce energy consumption drastically.

Your HVAC System is the Key to Lowering Your Energy Bills
Annual HVAC maintenance and installing a smart thermostat will help you lower your energy bills. You can even take it a step further by upgrading to an energy-efficient system. When you combine these three strategies, your energy bill should dip below Toronto's average. A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, can help you lower your energy bills.

FAQ

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Most common Boiler Issues

    - Boiler fails to ignite
    - Low pressure
    - Strange Noises
    - Boiler is not responding to the thermostat
    - Cold Radiators
    - Boiler leaking or dripping
    - Boiler cycling very fast

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.  

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.
