In-suite heat pump for condominiums and ductless heat pumps

Heat Pump Systems

More Than Just Home Heating

Heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners for all climates. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to transfer 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. During the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your house into the outdoors. Because they transfer heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can efficiently provide comfortable temperatures for your home.

Heat pumps are a terrific choice for condo owners. Heat pump systems are reversible in the summer months. If you don’t have a current air conditioning (AC) unit, the good news is that you get AC with the installation of a heat pump, with no additional cost. This is all achieved with the same extraordinary energy efficiency.

If you’re ready to increase the energy efficiency in your condo unit, call our office today to schedule your free, in-home energy assessment. You can also use our contact form to get in touch. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!


In-suite Heat Pump for Condominiums

Heat pumps are a great addition to your condominium home — in fact, it could be the best option for you in terms of energy efficiency and ease of comfort. Many condos are already on electric heat, which means the installation of a heat pump should be relatively pain-free. Many condo owners have their heat pump installed on their balcony or patio, which is often very convenient placement for excellent home heating. Installation can be as fast as one-half a day.

Heat pumps excel at providing energy efficient heat because of the process they use to warm a room. The exterior unit of the heat pump attracts errant heat in the outside air, sending it through a refrigerant within the coils of the unit. The heat energy continues its journey to the indoor condenser, where it is distributed to the interior space. In this way, the heat is being moved from one place to another — it isn’t being created by a furnace, as in other conventional home heating systems. Because of this, more energy efficient heat is practically guaranteed.

Ductless Heat Pumps

For homes without ducts, air-source heat pumps are also available in a ductless version called a mini-split heat pump. In addition, a special type of air-source heat pump called a "reverse cycle chiller" generates hot and cold water rather than air, allowing it to be used with radiant floor heating systems in heating mode.

Ductless mini split heat pumps are a great choice for homes or businesses with non-ducted heating systems, such as hydronic, radiant panels, and space heaters. They can also be a good choice for room additions, where extending or installing distribution ductwork is not feasible.

The main advantages of ductless heat pumps:

  • Small size and flexibility for zoning or heating and air conditioning individual rooms.
  • They are simple and fast to install in new or existing homes and businesses without significant disruption.
  • High efficiency.

Client Testimonials

  • ''A Plus Quality Inc/Heating and Cooling Services'' bailed me out of a difficult situation. My furnace quit with -18C° temperatures at 8pm on a Saturday. We had an infant at home and the house was cooling dramatically. By 10pm one of their technicians, Jack arrived and was able to show me how dangerous my situation really was. By 10am Sunday morning another technician, Dave began the installation of a new furnace. Shortly after, Jack joined in. Each gentleman was friendly, informative and answered all subsequent questions. Thank you for going above and beyond. Would highly recommend both technicians and the company they represent.

FAQ

  • 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.  

  • 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
    - Available Hot water but No Heat

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
     
  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.
