Can your air conditioner handle another heat wave in Niagara
Published July 28, 2022 at 10:28 am
With multiple brutal heat waves hitting Niagara Region so far this summer, some residents may feel like their current air conditioning system isn’t doing enough to keep them cool – but the coldness of Canadian winters always lingers in the back of the mind as well.
The solution to both extreme heat and extreme cold: Heat pumps.
Right now, the experts at Niagara-based company Mr. Furnace are offering free consultations to homeowners who want to install or repair a heat pump system, and potentially save thousands of dollars in rebates and savings on a new heat pump system.
“Heat pumps, also known as mini-splits or ductless air conditioners, are a convenient choice due to their hybrid heating and cooling capabilities,” says Mr. Furnace expert and General Manager Charles Puzzo.
“They provide comfort for all seasons while also being compact, cost-effective, and energy-saving.”
In simple terms, heat pumps work by finding heat inside the home, absorbing it, and sending it outside to keep homes cool during the summer. During winter, the process is reversed: Heat pumps absorb and transfer heat energy from outside the home and bring it inside.
Here are six benefits to a heat pump system:
- Save money and energy thanks to the use of electricity over gas
- Hybrid home comfort, with both heating and cooling capabilities
- Ideal comfort systems for homes that have no ductwork
- Great if you’re making the switch from oil, gas or propane
- Convenient, compact size
- Long-lasting HVAC systems
For residents who want to install a new heat pump system but aren’t sure where to start, Mr. Furnace is there to help – and in the process, determine if you’re eligible for up to $8,000 in rebates and savings.
The savings come in part from the Canada Greener Homes Initiative, which provides grants to Canadians who are working to make their homes more energy-efficient as a way to combat climate change.
All residents can contact Mr. Furnace for a completely free consultation with a Home Comfort Advisor, which includes measurements, assessment, and assistance with the application process for the grant.
The Home Comfort Advisor determines how much you could qualify for, and Mr. Furnace sets up an appointment with an auditor to apply for the grant. The result: Thousands in savings without having to lift a finger, as the expert team at Mr. Furnace does all the work for you.
On top of the savings, there are no payments and no interest for the first 12 months after installation.
Heat pump installation and repair are just two of the services offered by Mr. Furnace, which has proudly served St. Catharines and the rest of Niagara since 1978.
Mr. Furnace is a one-stop shop for all home comfort needs: Everything from heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) to indoor air quality and air purification to heat pumps and boilers. Additionally, Mr. Furnace has started offering plumbing services as well.
