AC Install: It’s Time To Start Planning

Right now, we’re in the depths of winter, but there are only a few short months until the summer heat will be here. If you are thinking about investing in an air conditioner this summer, now is the time to start planning! There are a few key factors to keep in mind to ensure you get the most out of your investment. 

At Whyte Ridge, we’re all about making your coolest dreams come true. We’re here to help you plan a first-time AC installation or replacement to help you stay comfortable all summer long. 

Professional Installation

First things first – don’t DIY your AC installation. It might seem like a fun weekend project, but the importance of bringing in a professional cannot be overstated. Enlist the services of a licensed and experienced HVAC professional to ensure your AC unit gets the royal treatment it deserves. 

Proper sizing, placement, and connection are crucial for maximizing performance and lifespan. You wouldn’t want your AC to damage your home or stop working.

Installation Location

Choosing the right location for your AC unit is an important task – it’s all about getting that optimal placement to ensure it works efficiently. 

Consider factors such as sunlight exposure, airflow, and proximity to electrical outlets. Smart placement can enhance efficiency and overall cooling performance. A technician will be able to help you find the perfect spot. 

Maintenance Requirements

Your AC system is not a ‘set it and forget it’ appliance. It craves attention, and a bit of tender loving care goes a long way. 

Get acquainted with the maintenance needs of your chosen AC system. Regular cleaning of filters and coils is the secret sauce for optimal performance and a longer lifespan. Ensure you’ve chosen an AC system that doesn’t require any extra fuss, and that your technician can provide regular maintenance. 

Warranty and Support

Nobody likes unexpected surprises, especially when it comes to your AC’s well-being. Opt for an AC unit that comes with a rock-solid warranty. Whyte Ridge offers 10 year parts limited warranty and ongoing maintenance.    

Our commitment to ongoing maintenance further sets us apart in providing comprehensive support for your AC system. Regular maintenance is akin to giving your AC unit a check-up, ensuring that it operates at peak efficiency. Our experienced technicians will conduct thorough inspections, address any emerging issues, and perform preventive measures to extend the lifespan of your system.

Noise Level

While your AC works its magic, the last thing you want is a disruptive hum in the background. Some AC units can be noisy, and the location of your installation can amplify this. 

Consider the noise level of the unit and choose one that aligns with your auditory preferences. Whyte Ridge offers Napolean AC units that come with whisper-quiet technology to ensure your vacation zen time isn’t interrupted. 

Not ready for traditional AC or want a cost-effective and environmentally friendly boost? Try a heat pump!

Heat pumps are energy-efficient champs. Instead of generating hot or cold, they’re masters at moving it around. This makes them not only environmentally friendly but also cost-effective. 

Imagine having both extra heating and cooling wrapped up in one package. Heat pumps offer year-round comfort without the need for separate systems, simplifying your HVAC game and cutting down on overall equipment costs.

Did you know that Manitoba offers financial incentives for heat pump installation? Taking advantage of these perks can be a game-changer, helping you offset the initial costs of installing a heat pump. So, not only do you get to bask in comfort, but you also get some extra green in your pocket.

While the initial investment for a heat pump may be higher than some traditional systems, the long-term energy savings can offset these costs over time. Additionally, reduced reliance on fossil fuels can contribute to lower utility bills.

As we endure the winter chill, it’s never too early to turn our attention to the impending summer heat. If you’re considering investing in an air conditioner, now is the opportune moment to start planning. At Whyte Ridge, we’re dedicated to turning your coolest dreams into reality and ensuring your summer remains comfortable
