Become a Smart Homeowner this Winter

Well well, so you thought that when we said; ''become a Smart Homeowners'', the next statement would be ''by installing Smart Home Appliances''? No, not really. Your guess was proven wrong. Today, we will talk about making your home a smart home and you a smart homeowner without the intervention of Smart (also expensive) appliances. Did you know that there are simple, in fact very simple ways that can help you maintain a desirable indoor environment by making only a limited use of the already installed appliances? Doing so will help you save on energy bills so that you can use those savings elsewhere. After all, you are going to be a smart homeowner.

First thing first - The basics

Of course, first thing first. Without managing the main loopholes, you can never get the expected results. With your home having air leaks, your appliances unmaintained and your home poor at insulation, no heating appliance can warm you as expected no matter what. So here's what you need to check first;

- Ensure there are no air leaks. Seal windows and doors properly and do not take even a tiny leak non seriously

- In case you are using the central heating system, make wise use of doors. Close the doors of the rooms you are using in order to keep the place fully warm and avoid heat loss

- It is not only risky in economic terms but also risky for health to make constant use of appliances. So better layer yourself with warm clothes when you can instead of turning up the thermostat

- Change your filter before starting using your Furnace and replace/clean the Filter every month when the Furnace is used constantly (in peek Winters)

- If you have any repairs to be made, fix them as soon as possible without any delay else your system will keep on taking surplus energy to operate

Some insights regarding heating systems

Now that we are done with some basic to do's there is something that we want you to learn about the heating system compatibility that varies according to varying situations and some other useful insights.

- If you are planning to purchase a Furnace system for your home, make sure to consult a professional in order to confirm the size of the system. Purchasing a small unit will fail to warm the home as per requirements while purchasing an overly large system will only cost you very high energy bills every month

- If you can't go for central heating for one reason or the other, consider purchasing a space heater but before you purchase, compare the efficiency of different units and the price of electricity and gas. Buy an electric space heater if that's what is cheaper for you in terms of fuel else go for gas. Generally, gas space heaters turn out to be an economical choice

- You don't necessarily have to have a Smart Thermostat in order to save big. You can save even with a simple programmable thermostat only if you make the right use of it so that it automatically turns off, on, up, down at the right timings. Learn about your device's features by reading the user manual carefully

-Dragging on with old units could be costly and replacing them the best choice for you. If your system has been worrying you, call a professional for inspection and consult regarding ''repair or replace''

- Fuel conversion is possible for Furnaces. If you purchase the system with oil as fuel type, you don't necessarily have to stick to it. You have the choice to change the fuel type without changing the entire system. Convert your fuel after estimating which fuel will turn out to be the most economical option

That's all for now. Make wise choices and follow wise practices to become a Smart Homeowner this Winter. It’s as easy as it sounds.


5 common HVAC mistakes made by homeowners

Never over-estimate the DIY shortcuts since they are not always synonymous with savings. Often times, it is the very DIY thing that becomes the primary reason for bringing home the hefty energy bills. Today, let us talk about the common HVAC mistakes that the homeowners make.

Hiding HVAC appliances
HVAC appliances are hardly appealing. In order to save the interior and exterior look that homeowners give to their homes with tireless efforts, they often hide appliances behind curtains, furniture etc in the indoors and behind plants or shrubs in the outdoors. And this is gruesome! The outdoor units when covered with greenery or other hiding elements fail to function properly as there's an absence of sufficient space around that is necessary for them to breathe. Similarly, when the indoor appliances are hidden behind curtains, sofas or other furniture, they too fail to function with the highest efficiency and this is especially true about the Thermostats that cannot sense proper temperature when not installed properly.

Thermostat DIY - A bad idea!
So we just talked about Thermostat above. When it comes to small appliances, homeowners think they can try anything on their own. This perception, however, is totally wrong. HVAC devices like the Thermostat require enough of technicalities and skills for their installation. When a DIY is performed, the very first mistake done is that a wrong placement is made. In addition to that, the control connections are not made properly. All of this leads to improper installation and an improper installation means; be ready for repairs, a rise in energy bills and improper cooling/heating.

Not giving two hoots to noises
Another gruesome error indeed! Homeowners do not take the HVAC noises seriously be they from the Furnace, Water Heater, Air Conditioner or any other appliance. The only time they are taken seriously is when they are either new or come under the warranty timeline. Other than that, the noises either keep making noises, are tried with a ''home remedy'' to remain quiet or ear plugs do the job. While on factual grounds, the noises could be a serious indication of something very wrong with your unit be it new or old. And such unusual noises if not given two hoots in time can lead to sudden appliance breakdown.

Odours like noises, say something
Just like unusual noises indicate towards something wrong going on, unusual odours serve the same purpose. They are given an equal unimportance and are treated with fragrance sprays that only resolve the problem temporarily and not permanently. Odours could be due to mould and spore growth in the ductwork or appliance units, odour from melting of viral connections, odour from fan motor etc. So take neither noises nor odour non seriously

Calling non pro for a pro's work     
Here's the biggest of mistakes; calling a non pro for the work that is meant to be performed by a pro. This leaves the appliance in an open danger and you could expect a break down just anytime. Savings that are apparently made in choosing a cheap service are compensated in frequent repairs in the coming years.

These mistakes when avoided elongate the lifetime of the HVAC appliances while also maintain an adorable indoor temperature as the appliances continue to perform with optimal efficiency.


Whole-home Humidifiers - Health Benefits

By now, you must be out of the confusion of choosing between a Whole-Home or a Portable Humidifier. But in case you are not, we are going to introduce you to factors that add a +,+ and + to the side of Whole-Home Humidifiers proving them to be a better to go choice. With no delay; let's begin!

  • Skin dryness? Forget about it, dude!
Portable Humidifiers produce less moisture compared with the high-efficiency whole-home Humidifier units and are, therefore, less effective at combating skin related problems caused by low humidity. Who looks good with a scratched nose, cracked lips and spotty arms? We want beauty man, beauty! Revive your all-time beautiful look, install a whole-home Humidifier!

  • Better immunity with a better Humidifier!
You got it right. If the link seems irrelevant, let's define it. There's a membrane in the body called the mucous membrane which is the natural defence system of the body against diseases, germs and viruses. This membrane, when deprived of necessary moisture, dries out and thus fails to provide that active shield against germs that it otherwise does, putting an individual at the risk of getting ill. And moreover, when there's low humidity, there are more germs and viruses that stay and stay longer in the air. Installing a whole-home Humidifier can cover these grounds of discomfort and unease.

  • Let cold and flu come but bridle it!
Did you know that cold (normal cold) can be a sign of healthy immune system? And the similar is true for flu that is overall good for your health. But as they say; things are good as long as they are in a limit. The natural course of cold and flu can go worse in the absence of sufficient humidity. This prolongs the sickness and makes it severe leading to serious health complications. In order to avoid prolonging sicknesses, installing a whole-home Humidifier works a great deal.

  • The much desirable; Pleasant Sleep
We all sleep but not all of us sleep a pleasant sleep. In Winters particularly, the sleep patterns of many people get disturbed because of the disturbance caused by low humidity levels as they sleep. And snoring? It gets just absolutely worst with dried out air. Whole-home Humidifiers as they produce moisture in excess in the air make the sleeping experience better by quieting the snoring ones, relieving the restless ones and making the overall indoor air comfortable.

  • Dermatitis or Eczema? Whole-Home Humidifier, please!
Like we just discussed, Whole-Home Humidifiers is a good to go choice generally for all homeowners but it is particularly good for people suffering from health problems that go worse in the dry air of Winter. For instance, people with Dermatitis and Eczema have to go through so much unease when they are exposed to dry air. If you have someone at home suffering from the above-mentioned or similar illnesses, Portable Humidifiers won't suffice for you; go for whole-home.

Competition in the HVAC industry is getting tougher. The market today is teamed with brands of different names that are launching their ever-new HVAC units. So there are a plethora of choices. But having too many choices is not always an ideal situation. In these ''too many to choose from'' choices, homeowners often end up making wrong decisions. To save you such mis-purchases, we recommend that HVAC professionals are consulted before finalising an appliance and in case that is not possible, at least make time to surf the internet in order to make sure your chosen unit doesn't have an unending list of negative customer reviews below it. Make wise purchases!


5 Furnace facts you don't know

As the Fall begins, homeowners start to kick their Furnaces by having them tuned-up, diagnosed and by running test runs. Before we begin sharing the interesting facts about the residential Furnace, here's a piece of advice for you;
If you haven't had your Furnace tuned-up for Winter yet, do it now. In addition to that, if your Furnace had been giving you hard time in the last Winter and is also old, consider calling an HVAC professional to have the system diagnosed and decide if it needs replacement. Remember that in the midst of the heating and cooling season that we are now in, HVAC professionals are relatively free to perform the installation, repair and maintenance tasks. Once the peak season begins, it is harder than bringing stars from the sky to get an appointment with a pro.


Furnaces are the most common home heating systems
If you're using a residential Furnace for indoor heating, you're among that vast majority that uses Furnaces for the purpose of heating. Over the last decade, the use of Furnaces has increased to a great extent. While Furnaces can be run on gas, oil and electricity, most homeowners prefer to run their system on natural gas. According to the US Department of Energy, Furnaces that are run on natural gas cost up to 30% less compared with electricity run Furnaces.

Furnaces are older than you possibly think
So what's your sharpest guess? How old are Furnaces? Five decades old? Ten decades old? No matter how long you stretch your guesses, you won't reach accuracy. Actually, the Furnace technology is as old as 1200 BC. Initially introduced by the Romans with the name of ''Hypocausts'', this technology improved over time and is now in the form that we see it in. Romans used Furnaces for the purpose of metallurgy, smelting iron and for other similar uses.

Furnaces are friends that go long way along
Yes, one of the loveliest facts about Furnaces is that they don't betray you. Once you've installed a Furnace, they get along for years and years. The lifespan of medium efficiency Furnaces is 18-25 years while that of the high-efficiency Furnaces is 15-20 years. One of the reasons why people know so little about their Furnace systems is that they have it already installed when they buy or rent a home and also don't have to replace it for years later.

Furnaces are composed of three main component
The three components of a Furnace system are:
- Blower
- Burner
- Heat exchanger
The purpose of the burner is to create heat. The Heat Exchanger then separates the breathable and combustible gas and the blower then blows the breathable air towards the supply ducts. There are other components as well but these three are responsible for the heating process.

Furnaces have local and national regulations

As said earlier, Furnaces are the most commonly used home heating appliances, it is important to also make them the safest ones. To make it possible, Furnaces are regulated with local and national regulations, for instance, it is not allowed to use a Red Tagged Furnace. These regulations are important for homeowners, for the safety of the public in general and for the safety of the environment. A poorly installed Furnace can put life and property at stake while it can also harm the environment in the worst of fashion.


3 Thermostat blunders that every homeowner makes

Ever wondered how much of your energy bills constitute the heating and cooling bills? Almost 50%. Since a huge amount of energy is sucked by heavy appliances like the Air Conditioner, Furnace and other such home comfort heating and cooling appliances, it is essential to adopt the right HVAC practices so that the appliances consume only the desired energy and not more than that. We're going to talk about 3 major Thermostat mistakes that homeowners make and consequently have to pay more energy bills.


- Impatience kills
Indeed it does. But unfortunately, people are too hasty to remain patient and wait for the Air Conditioner to cool down the indoor at a high temperature. Entered the home and felt hot? While you only wanted to have 75 degrees to feel comfortable you set the Thermostat to 72 so that the ''quick cool'' magic takes place. The truth is, with a non-inverter Air Conditioner, an AC cannot be made to run at more than one single speed. Setting the temperature lower only makes the system to work harder and longer, taking more energy units. Stay patient and set the temperature at 75.

- Change is good!
Shocking but true; a vast majority of homeowners never make use of all the settings provided by their HVAC Thermostat. All they know is an ON-OFF and switching between the standard indoor temperatures for Winter and Summers. That's not good enough. Energy Star says that homeowners waste up to $180 annually by not changing Thermostat settings when they need to. In order to save energy and keep the home comfortably cool/hot, some necessary changes need to be made. Here are some;

- Who are you cooling/heating when you're not home? Remember to change the setting every time you leave the home for eight hours or longer. Setting the Thermostat 5-8 degrees up in Summers and lowering it 10-15 degrees in Winters in recommended by HVAC professionals for the time you're not home.
- When you return, set the temperature back to normal. If there's a problem remembering to make the settings every now and then, consider installing a Smart Thermostat.   
Making the desired Thermostat changes whenever they're needed can help save up to 15% on energy bills annually as claimed by the US Department of Energy.

Too much messing? Bad idea!  
While making the necessary Thermostat changes help save on electricity bills, keep the indoor comfortable and make the appliances perform with their best efficiency, messing up with the Thermostat does exactly the opposite. Constant changes make the appliances to start and stop every now and then which not only disturb the indoor comfort but also affects the efficiency of the appliances. As a result, you feel discomfort despite having the most efficient appliances. So, never cross the limit and make only the changes that need to be made. Consult an HVAC professional to discover your Thermostat model better if you've a hard time getting along it.

Thermostats are your saving box. They provide a heaven of comfort and ease. Not only do they help keep the indoor temperature comfortable but also save you from the discomfort of turning the appliances off and on. But in order to make the most of your HVAC appliances, it is crucial to practice the right HVAC practices. We’ve just helped you discover some. Enjoy!


How to suspect a broken AC Compressor?

Home comfort heating and cooling appliances provide great relief by creating a comfortable indoor environment that saves us from the harsh temperatures. Whether it is extremely cold outside or blazing hot, as long as you've an HVAC system operating and the right HVAC practices followed, nothing is going to affect your indoor activities as such. But the same comfort providing appliances can create great unease when an issue occurs and they either partially or completely stop working. For the Summers, what is a worse nightmare than to have an AC problem that too on the hottest Summer days when even the technicians are not easily available? We want homeowners to learn the HVAC basics, ways of suspecting the HVAC problems in time and simple DIY tips to treat their appliances on their own so as to have a quick and free repair.

Let's talk about broken AC Compressor. It has been observed that many Toronto homeowners continue to use their Air Conditioners with broken compressors knowing not that the compressor is broken. There are simple ways a broken AC compressor can be suspected in time.

Broken Compressor

- Insufficient Cool Air

Why do you have your Air Conditioner for? For cooling, certainly! And you after using your unit for a few weeks begin to have an idea what level of cooling the AC unit provides. As soon as a lack of cool air is felt, know that something's wrong with the AC system and most probably with the compressor unit. There is one thing that needs to be understood in this regard. Insufficient cooling and insufficient air flow are two different things. While the lack of cooling means something's wrong with your compressor, the lack of air flow means that your AC blower is malfunctioning, not the compressor.     

- The Snake like Sounds?

Ever found a snake in your Toronto home? Okay, let's say you've never seen a real snake ever, you sure still know what kind of sound does it make. It makes hissing sounds. If the same kind of hissing is heard from the compressor unit, it indicates the system is overly burdened and this is alarming. However, keep this point in mind that the hissing sound coming from other parts of the HVAC system, particularly the ducts, indicate air leaks but the same sound coming from the compressor indicate a totally different thing; a broken or malfunctioning Compressor.

-  Too much noise

When a Central Air Conditioner is turned on, it makes some noise. Who likes being woken up from rest man? But this whining should not last for too long and should not be coming from the compressor motor once the unit begins to operate. An unusually loud noise coming from the compressor motor indicates that either the motor is working harder than usual or there's a problem developing in the air compressor.

I've found out that my compressor has these issues, what to do?

The first and foremost thing you should do if any of the above-mentioned air compressor problems are suspected is to look for a reliable Air Conditioner technician and call him to have a professional diagnosis of the system so as to suggest what to do. And then, do as directed since professionals are professionals. They know HVAC appliances better than the commoners.
Happy HVAC learning!


Explore reasons behind your always dusty home

So there are people whose biggest worry is a home full of dust. And it is not so because they don't do enough cleaning. In fact, they're the people using the most of Canada's electricity on Vacuum cleaners. But the dust, ah man! It never goes away. Here they clean and there it comes back again. This post is dedicated to all such homeowners who have a hard time kicking the dust off of their homes. Let's begin:

Dust in home

Reasons why your home is dusty

#1 You're using the wrong Filters

If no one had informed you before, let us;
‘’All Filters are not suitable for all HVAC systems’’
Just like every home is different, the requirements of the HVAC system of every home are different too. So never purchase Filters following random advice. What is suitable for your friend/neighbour/colleague HVAC system must not be for yours. And here's what happens when you use improper Filter. It fails to trap the air contaminants, consequently spreading the dust and debris through your home.
Hold on, there's more. It is not just about the right Filters. Even if you've a high MERV filter, it would still keep home dusty if not cleaned/replaced regularly. So if a dusty home is your problem, make sure you're using the right Filter (at least with 8 MERV). And in addition to that, clean/replace it at least once every six months.

#2 You're unaware of this Thermostat trick while dusting

Here's something that many homeowners are unaware of. A simple trick that helps trap the dust easily. When you're dusting, turn the Air Conditioner from ''Auto'' to ''ON''. When the AC is set at ''ON'', the AC blower continuously circulates air through the home. And when this happens, the air pollutants get sucked by the return vents and trapped by the filters there. But hey there! You need to regularly clean the Filters to allow this trick to work.

#3 You're having a leaking Duct

Here's where the importance of professional services is felt. While many homeowners prefer to choose random services for ductwork installation, spending thousands of dollars and realising not how it will affect the whole HVAC system later, we endorse and always endorse to seek professional services for things like Ductwork Installation. A leaking duct can cost you drastically on your energy bills because a whole lot of cooling would be leaking but it will do something more and that is; it will keep your home always dusty. We know that ductworks have lots of dust and debris in them that get stuck to the walls of the duct as the air passes through them. Any leaks in the ducts allow the air to come out of the leaks and this air isn't clean air you know. So here you'll vacuum and there you'll see things developing layers of dust. Fix the leaks as soon as possible.

Bottom Line

Who wants a dusty home? Certainly no one! A home having a lot of dust does not only create cleaning issues, it also creates breathing discomfort and leads to health problems like itchiness, sinus and throat problems, irritation in eyes and others. It is, therefore, important to maintain a healthy level of indoor air by eliminating the dust and the sources of dust. If you're living in an exceptionally polluted area, for instance, an industrial area and have a hard time keeping your home dust free despite using all the possible ways, it is suggested to install an Air Filtration system. Air Cleaners help clean the air and provide up to 98.8 percent cleaner air.


Why choose HVAC zoning system?

Did you ever notice that despite being in one room you keep the whole home conditioned? This consumes a lot of electricity and unknowingly you pay more than what you actually need to pay as utility bills. By restricting the conditioning system to only the in use parts of the house, you can save up to 25% on energy bills. But how to do that? Well, thanks to the HVAC zoning system. With zoning, you can now restrict the use of heating and conditioning to the areas where you prefer to stay. For example, if you are not in the bedroom, you do not need to keep it conditioned, why then should you allow the duct to blow cool air into that area?


What exactly is HVAC zoning system?

Zoning System is a new technology which proves helpful in restricting the heating/cooling to the desired parts of the house. If you are using a Central Air Conditioner to cool your hotel/house/office through a duct system, what happens usually is that the ductwork that goes to almost every room conditions all rooms equally. Some people prefer closing the vents but HVAC professionals say it is not the right way since it overloads the system. A better option is available and this is through HVAC zoning. In HVAC zoning, dampers are installed in the ductwork. With the help of a control panel and a Thermostat, the rooms/areas of a house can be made into different zones and can then be operated separately assigning different temperatures. That's synonymous to operating several different Air Conditioning units while in actual you're operating only one. The process goes like this:

As the conditioned air comes from the Central Air Conditioning Unit and passes through the duct, the dampers move according to the settings made and allow a different flow of air to reach different rooms. Rooms whose dampers are fully open are fully conditioned while those with partially opened or totally closed dampers receive less or no cooling respectively. So? Zoning helped to create a temperature of your own choice in different zones of your home wasting no cooling while also allowing savings on utility bills.    

Why Zoning?

Zoning system provides a balance in making your home comfortable. This improves not only the environment by making less use of the heating/cooling appliances but also help save hundreds of dollars on energy bills. Zoning is ideal for homes that have a temperature difference or that have members with different temperature needs.
Do you have a ductwork installed at home? Are you using Central Air Conditioner? Do you wish to turn to zoning? If yes, yes, yes then YESSS! We're here to help.

At Cosmopolitan Mechanical, we not only offer duct installation and Air Conditioner Installation services, we also offer HVAC zoning services to convert your conventional ductwork into an HVAC zoning supportive ductwork.

5 Blunders every homeowner make with their HVAC system sometime in their Life

Don’t you love your HVAC system? You do indeed since it is this system that helps you keep yourself warm in Winters and cool in Summers. Nobody wants to mess with their HVAC system and surely you also don’t. To enjoy a supreme performance of your HVAC system, it is crucial to take utmost care of it and avoid making stupid mistakes with the system.
Why not tell you about the common blunders that people make with their HVAC system? Hey! Don’t grin, you make them too.


Common not to do’s
Blocking the air vents
Airflow is the basic thing HVAC system runs on to work properly and perfectly. If there’s some sort of hindrance such as furniture, dust particles, blockage etc in front of vents particularly return vents, the system will not be able to function well. Hence, the result will be reduced efficiency and higher energy bills which you obviously do not want.

Allowing Thermostat to Overheat
A Thermostat is like the brain of your HVAC system. Like they say, “A worm in mind doesn’t let you think and move forward.” Similarly, a worm (overly heated) in thermostat will not let your HVAC system to work properly.
Thermostat either gets too hot when it’s placed in places like near the kitchen or where direct sunlight affects it, or it gets hot when various items such as laptops/computers, televisions, decorative lights are placed near it. This way, it can throw off temperature of its own and overload your HVAC system. Be very cautious about placement!

Underestimating Filter Cleaning/Replacement
Old or clogged air filters can reduce the amount of airflow through your system. As these filters help in catching debris, dust, pollens, hair and other particles that could prove harmful to your HVAC system including the appliances, these filters need changing every 30 to 60 days. Sounds too hectic? Okay, then an alternative exists too. Purchasing a High MERV filter can give you peace for almost one year. (Make sure the High MERV is suitable for your system)

Not installing a CO detector
Carbon Monoxide is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas also called, ‘’Silent Killer’’ and yes, extremely harmful. CO is often leaked through the damaged vents or pipes of HVAC system and can also result in death if a high leakage takes place. Installing a carbon dioxide detector in your home can not only save your life but can also prove helpful for your system. It can alarm you if a CO presence is sensed inside of the home.
Although it is an important device, most homeowners don’t bother to install it. The truth is, this investment can return in terms of safe and secure indoor heating and cooling experience.  
Ignoring duct repairs and tune-ups
Skipping maintenance check-ups can allow problems to go undetected and get worse, consequently causing serious damages to your HVAC system. As they say “It is better to do now than to regret later.” So it is better for you to keep up with the maintenance of your system’s tuning and repairing than to spend a whole lot of money later on changing the system altogether. Don’t forget, Maintenance is always cheaper than Repair.

So, how many of these blunders do you make or have been making with your system? Hmmm?


Getting to know about Mitsubishi Mini Split

Mitsubishi calls itself ''the leader in intelligent comfort'' and there is probably no exaggeration in that. The company does make efforts to introduce intelligent technology and launch for homeowners such home comfort heating and cooling appliances that are innovative plus time and energy saving. Mitsubishi Mini Split is one such smart appliance of Mitsubishi. Let us explore what's so special with Mitsubishi Mini Split Air Conditioner.

Central Air Conditioning - Does that suit all?
Of course not! The biggest drawback of central heating and cooling system is that it treats the air of the entire home. There may be the times when conditioned air is not required in all rooms or a different temperature is required for different members of the family. The central home cooling system fails to deliver the solution to that. Although, closing the ducts of unused rooms is one option but that has its drawbacks too. Similarly, zoning system lately introduced can be employed in order to provide different temperatures for different rooms but that is too expensive to afford. A better option that the Mitsubishi has come up with is its Mini Split Air Conditioner to heat or cool individual rooms. The revolutionary heating and cooling system of Mitsubishi Electric is ideal to keep homes warm in Winters and Cold in the Summers since the ductless AC is attached to a heat pump which is a proven technology for heating and cooling.


What makes Mitsubishi Mini Split special?
Powerful Compressor
There are two main idiocentric aspects that this Mini Split holds. Usually, in the conventional heat pumps, the compressor fails to provide warmth when the temperature gets intensely cold outside. However, the compressor of Mini Split Heat Pump is designed particularly to keep colder climate areas in mind. The mechanism of the compressor and its operation is more powerful than the normal compressors and, therefore, even in temperature below -25 degrees, the compressor continues to generate ultimate warmth. This makes Mitsubishi Mini Split an ideal appliance to be used for both heating and cooling in colder and hotter areas alike.

Multiple Indoor Unit
So as we just said, the body temperature of individuals can be different and so would the outside temperature requirement. In a central cooling system, not all members are happy with the indoor temperature and as said zoning system for heating and cooling is an expensive installation. The mini split of Mitsubishi allows up to 4 indoor units. All the four indoor units are powered by one compressor. Any room can be heated or cooled to a different temperature and yes, everyone's happy when at home.

Amazing features of Mitsubishi Mini Split
I See Sensor
I See Sensor technology has been used for the very first time in the home comfort heating and cooling industry. This sensor detects the hot and cold spots in a room and focuses the airflow towards those specific areas in order to maintain a levelled temperature throughout the room. This provides an ultimate comfort and least energy waste.    

Catechin Air Purifier system
You heard it right. Your air is not just treated with Mitsubishi Mini Split, it also gets cleaned. There's an Air Purifying system installed within the unit that uses natural antibacterial agents to produce fresh and healthy air.

Powerful Mode
The powerful mode technology of the Mini Split makes it capable to heat or cool the room in not time. This is particularly helpful when you're back from tireless work routine and would want to have your home temperature perfectly what you want. A quick cooling and quick heating is possible with Mitsubishi Mini Split.

And that’s all with Mitsubishi Mini Split Air Conditioner. Feel like installing one? Or have any questions about Air Conditioners? Feel free to connect with us.


Tips to avoid fraudster HVAC contractors

Home comfort Heating and Cooling appliances aren't a candy of few cents that you can buy and it’s okay if it didn't taste good, you can buy some other. They are in fact heavy investments that you do to raise the level of indoor comfort for yourself and your family. Appliances that are heavily spent on, need to be installed, maintained and repaired by professionals in order assure their highest efficiency and longer lifetime. Unfortunately, many GTA homeowners often fall into the trap of spam and fraudster HVAC contractors. The sad thing is; this way not only a significant amount is wasted on paying to the unprofessionals but also, irrevocable damages are often caused to the very costly appliances. A heavy loss indeed! So, how to avoid such fraud services?

We're pointing out some ways that will help you figure out whether or not a service is valid and reliable enough to choose.

Red Flag 1
Professionals don't quote on call
Here's your first clue. Professional HVAC contractors won't quote on call without first analysing the condition of your system. Particularly, when it is about repairing unless a technician sees what's wrong with your appliance, nothing can be said about how much the repairing will cost. So if the contractor you get in contact with is giving you quotes on call even on repairing, without first analysing your system, there are possibilities that he's the other guy speaking from some random apartment, running something fishy-fishy.

Red Flag 2
Professionals don't ask for huge advance payments
Well, yes! Professionals know that they have to deliver and then ask for payments. If it is about sales, a product is first delivered to you and only then the payments are asked. In the case of services, payments without any services performed in never something the professionals do. Once again, if your contractor is asking for heavy payments, he's probably not a professional and will most probably mess up with your appliance too.

Red Flag 3
Professionals don't speak from ''unknown'' places
If you ask a so called HVAC contractor of his office/business address and he tells you the place is under construction, we haven't yet made one, our services are door to door or any such excuse, beware! Professional service providers have proper business addresses that they never mind telling their potential customers.

Red Flag 4
Professionals have proper introduction and a legacy
This is important! When professionals contact you or you contact them, they happily tell you about the people they've served near you so that you may confirm the quality of their services from them. Contrary to that, non-professionals and fraudsters never do that. On one hand, they have no customers. Even if they do, they sure aren't happy customers to introduce you to.   

Red Flag 5
Professionals have License
This one is the easiest way to make sure you're dealing with a contractor who can be trusted upon. Usually, professionals show their certification without asking. If yours doesn't, ask him to show you the HVAC certification he owns. A real contractor will have it with him always while a fraudster will tell you the certificate is lost, is in the process of making, is at office and etc etc.
