What is a TON?
A “Ton” is the way we measure the cooling capacity of an air conditioner. Standard residential air conditioners will range in size from 1.5 Ton (for smaller homes) to 5.0 Ton (for the largest homes). It is important for a heating and cooling expert to correctly size your air conditioner or heat pump for your home. An oversized A/C will cause “short cycling”, turning the unit on and off too frequently. Short cycling will also cause the unit to lose both efficiency and the ability to properly dehumidify the home. This may result in higher utility bills and a less comfortable home. However, an undersized unit will run too often, and on the hottest days of the year, may not be able to adequately cool the home.
What does SEER mean?
SEER stands for seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER), it is the way we measure the energy efficiency of an air conditioner. The higher the number, the more energy-saving the unit is thus qualifying for provincial rebates offered. The minimum allowed in Canada is 13 SEER and that number can go up to 25
Why does the manufacturer brochure say “up-to” a certain SEER?
The reason the manufacturers often advertise their units with an “up-to” SEER rating is because on many models the SEER rating of the A/C can be boosted by pairing it with a more efficient furnace that contains an ECM Motor and Variable Speed Fan. It’s always best to ask your HVAC expert how the performance of your new high efficiency system can be optimized..
What’s a REFRIGERANT? What is FREON? What is PURON
The refrigerant is a substance that circulates through the air conditioner, alternately absorbing, transporting and releasing heat. There are two types of refrigerant for residential air conditioners; Puron or R-410A, the new, now standard, environmentally-friendly refrigerant and Freon or R-22, the now obsolete refrigerant in Canada. It is very important to know that systems which are specially designed to work with one refrigerant type or the other cannot be combined and when upgrading both the inside “Coil” and outside “Condenser” must be replaced for proper operation.
