Selecting the Right Heating System for Your Home

Let our professionals complete a proper load analysis on your heating project before you start purchasing equipment. Only once we have the complete calculations for your space can the proper heating equipment be selected and installed. Our load analysis takes many factors into consideration such as:

  • Climate
  • Number and type of windows
  • Insulation and ductwork
  • Building materials and roof type
  • Skylights and fireplaces
  • Ceiling heights
  • Number of occupants
  • Overall square footage
  • Personal heating preferences
  • Interior design objectives

We find far too many oversized heating systems being installed in most projects today. An oversized heating system actually makes it harder to control the desired temperature and humidity in any given space. Large systems will be able to get the desired temperature more quickly but will not be able to keep pace with keeping a consistent humidity. Large systems will also go through a process of more starts and stops known as “short cycles”. These short cycles will reduce the lifespan of your heating equipment and are not an efficient or cost effective way to heat your home. It also means you are paying for more expensive equipment that isn’t really being used to its maximum efficiency.

Heating systems that are too small just don’t cut it. They are both inefficient at producing the desired temperature and humidity and will run constantly throughout the year. Both the system and your energy bill are going to feel the pain.

Check Your Heating Equipment

Since majority of your energy expenses during winter goes to the heating of your boilers/hot water tanks, it is important to subject them to preventative maintenance on a regular basis, preferably before winter. An inefficient HVAC system can result to a heat loss of up to two percent every year.

High Efficiency Gas Furnaces

High efficiency natural gas furnaces convert gas to heat for your home or business. We can recommend and install several types of gas furnace for your home or building. Many modern homes in Vancouver are using gas furnaces for the majority of modern homes with central heating and air conditioning. Please note that you can only use a gas furnace if you have a gas line hooked up to your home.

Two of our most popular gas furnace options are from Trane and Lennox. The technology coming out of both companies is very impressive and we can help determine which furnace system will perform best given your heating needs and budget. Now has never been a better time to replace your gas furnace with a more efficient model.

Give our technical support line a call if you have any questions or are interested in scheduling an appointment to discuss natural gas furnaces at your convenience.

Air Handlers

An HVAC air handling unit (AHU) is the indoor part of your heating and cooling system. An air handler circulates both cool and hot air, depending on the season. When properly matched with a heat pump or air conditioner, an air handler will help you maximize the overall efficiency of your HVAC system. We offer installation and expertise on an extensive range of air handling units that will maximize your home or business heating and cooling requirements.

The technology coming out of Trane and Lennox have proven to be excellent over the past few years. Each company offers impressive features and competitive pricing. Our heating system experts can help you determine which air handler will perform best for your given situation and budget. Our technical support staff is always ready to answer questions or schedule an appointment.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps offer a heating solution for homes with no access to natural gas. As the name suggests, heat pumps move heat from one place to another. When it’s cold outside, heat pumps extract outside heat and transfer it inside. When it’s warm outside, they reverse this process to push unwanted heat outside.

Lennox and Trane heat pumps are currently using the most efficient and cost effective heat pump technologies. Our experience with many heat pump models gives us the competitive edge to source the best possible solution for your heating needs. Feel free to call our service technicians to discuss heat pumps or the schedule an appointment.

Coils

Also known as “evaporator coils” or “indoor coils”, this piece is equipment is an integral part of many heating and cooling systems. Coils are designed to work with your outdoor condensing unit or furnace. The indoor air gets cold and the refrigerant gas warms up. The coil serves as a heat exchanger, heating in the winter and cooling the system in the summer.

There are many quality coils available on the market today, and some bad ones. If you are unsure about which coil will make best choice for your heating system please call our technical service support to schedule an appointment.

Sustainable Heating Solutions

The demand for more efficient hvac systems in residential, commercial and industrial buildings is only increasing. These primary sectors rely heavily on heating and cooling systems and their carbon footprints are large.

We find the best possible solution to minimize our clients’ energy consumption to help reduce operating costs and lessen their carbon footprints. From more efficient appliances and equipment to automated energy management systems we can accomplish these goals to help you save money and operate your home or business in the most efficient manner.

Using Renewable Energy

The use of renewable and alternative sources of energy can minimize carbon emissions of residential and commercial users. The simple act of using hvac systems already requires energy, so if you can use alternative energy to cool or heat your homes, then that would be good both for your wallet and the planet.

We can help select and instal many green technologies being offered in the hvac industry today. From solar to geothermal we only employ the most sustainable technologies that will fit with your energy requirement needs, budget. These are today’s most popular alternative sources of energy that we make work for our clients throughout BC and Alberta.

Solar Power

Some people could not believe that solar energy can be harnessed to run the water and air source heat pump in countries with cold climates like Canada. One could not really blame them as this is an alternative energy source commonly heard of only in tropical countries. The secret to harnessing this technology is in choosing the right company to do the job. There is a new solar panel technology that is more reliant on light absorption and not on endless days of sun. This technology is effective and can provide water to your homes and offices the whole year round, even if you get cloudy days all the time.

So how do solar panels work?

Your existing water heater system will work with the solar panels. But with up to 70% of your hot water supply provided by the solar panels, you can expect a significant reduction in your next energy bills. However, you need to make some adjustments in your homes including the construction of insulation materials for your walls. Make sure to consider the local laws and regulations before installing your solar panels.

Solar-powered water heating systems can help you optimize your energy management strategy. Fort one, it can be the source of up to a third of your hot water requirements for the year. By sourcing all of your hot water requirements from the solar heater, you would be able to cut by around 580 kilograms your yearly carbon emissions. Your HVAC systems can be installed or upgraded to work with alternative energy sources. Ask a reputable company like Hamilton Industries, Ltd. about that possibility.
