WHAT AC SERVICES AND REBATES CAN I ENJOY WITH CONSTANT HOME COMFORT?
Constant Home Comfort is partnered with the following brands for AC products: Lennox, American Standard, Armstrong Air, Keeprite, Goodman, and Aire-Flo.
It is dependent on the AC system you need but it can range from $3500 to $7000, with an average of $5000.
There are room air conditioners and central air conditioners. Room air conditioners can be mounted on a window or a wall, or they can be a free standing portable unit. They will be smaller in size because they help circulate fresh, breezy air in specific rooms.
A central air conditioner can be a single package unit, split system, or hidden in the mini ducts. Since this circulates air all throughout the home/space, the system will be bigger and so there may be multiple components, indoors and outdoors.
An EER certifies the cooling efficiency of an HVAC unit, which is calculated by the rate of cooling in BTUs per hour and divided by the rate of energy input in watts at a specific temperature. The optimal rating for a cooling unit is 80db/67wb indoors and 95db/75wb outside.
A SEER rating is the cooling input during the winter, divided by the total electric input during that same period. The higher the SEER rating is, the more efficient the system will be. For example, a unit with a SEER rating of 13 will increase efficiency by up to 30%.
Replacement or fixing costs can go upwards of $300, adding in sales representative travel fees. With so many additional costs, investing in a brand new AC system is worthwhile.
Depending on the model and product type of your AC that you purchase, you may qualify for different rebates. Contact our team to find out what savings you are eligible for!
Similar to the furnace maintenance plan, the AC maintenance plan helps ensure your AC system is operating at the highest efficiency and providing a comfortable living environment year-round.
The monthly cost for this program is also $9.99 + HST/month. If you purchase a new AC system with Constant Home Comfort, the program goes down to $8.99 + HST/month.
DO I QUALIFY FOR ATTIC INSULATION REBATES?
In your home, you should ensure that you have adequate insulation in your walls, basement, and attic as this is what keeps the hot air in and cold air out in the winters. Without insulation, your home is at risk of temperature fluctuations and damages.
During the winters, beyond temperature changes, the snow can melt and create ice dams as well as excessive condensation which poses a danger to your household. Beyond general safety precautions, there are also energy savings and environmental issues to be wary of.
In the GTA, there are a variety of rebate programs that allows you to earn back some money while you do energy efficient home renovations. Since attic insulation saves energy, you can qualify for thousands of dollars in savings. Contact our team for more information.
WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BASEMENT INSULATION?
Basement insulation is important to prevent energy loss. The basement is the area of the house that loses the most amount of heat which is why it cannot be neglected in the insulation process. It will also help reduce moisture, cut energy costs, and increase the value of your home.

CAN YOU HELP ME MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION ABOUT BUYING A WATER HEATER?
The water heater assists with heating the water through electrical-resistance heating elements. Every home needs a well-functioning water heater for many components of it to be working, such as the showers, cooking, space heating, etc.
Beyond the purchasing price and rental price, you have to consider additional costs such as installation fees, labour costs, parts costs. On top of that, you have to consider the time you have to either maintain your purchase or search for a contractor after your warranty ends.
Depending on your living situation and what works best for you, you may want to invest in a water heater. Constant Home Comfort provides both the option to purchase and to rent
WHAT CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT BUYING A NEW FURNACE?
Gas furnaces offer ideal heating in your home while using significantly less energy than any other heating method including electricity, oil, or wood heating. They also help heat the entire home quickly while circulating filtered air within the home.
BTU stands for British thermal unit and it is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit (One BTU is about 1055 joules of energy). Gas furnaces have sizes ranging from 40,000 to 120,000 BTU/hour.
Purchasing a bigger furnace does not imply a better system for your home and a smaller furnace does not imply smaller costs. To decide the furnace size you should be purchasing, you can conduct a heat loss calculation (Manual J calculation) which will tell you the ideal size for your furnace.
This equation takes your home size, climate, design, and architecture into consideration and produces a furnace size that is ideal for that space.
At Constant Home Comfort, we carry the following brands: Lennox, American Standard, Armstrong Air, Keeprite, Goodman, and Aire-Flo.
AFUE stands for the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating and it measures how efficiently energy is consumed. A lower rating implies a less efficient furnace as it means that more energy is required to heat up your home. When you’re looking for a new furnace, choose one that has a higher AFUE efficiency rating.
Furnace systems that have single-stage heating means they have a fixed gas valve and a single-speed blower motor. A two stage furnace system will have two levels of output, meeting more heating demands.
Two stage furnaces are superior as they are able to operate at a low speed for majority of the day and has little temperature variance.
A variable speed furnace means that the furnace’s indoor blower motor operators at a range of speeds to control the flow of heated air to your home. It runs more efficiently than a single or 2-stage furnace so that you save money and energy.
At Constant Home Comfort, there is a furnace maintenance plan. This includes the cleaning of your furnace system and a parts & labour element, assisting homeowners with the hassle of having to reorder parts or maintain their system.
This plan will give a complete report on your system and when it needs additional servicing or adjustment. The monthly cost for this program is $9.99 + HST/month. If you purchase a new furnace with Constant Home Comfort, the program goes down to $8.99 + HST/month.
Besides the furnace making strange noises and physically damaged, the key signs could be that your gas/electricity bills are rising but you are using the same amount of energy. At the same time, your home’s temperature may be flutatuing more than usual. Once you find yourself adjusting the temperature often and feeling less comfortable, it is worth it to check your furnace system.
COULD YOU TELL ME ABOUT IAQS?
IAQ stands for Indoor Air Quality -- referring to the air quality within and around buildings.
Air cleaners, humidifiers, ventilators, and thermostats all fall under IAQs.
The following brands are associated with IAQs: Lennox, Clean Comfort, Honeywell, Generalaire, Aprilaire, Nest, and White-Rogers.
