Default 2013 Waterdown AC Group Buy

Dear Building Homes Waterdown Community,

Four Season Comfort Heating and Cooling has been fortunate to provide the Building Homes community members HVAC sales and service for the last 6 years. We are pleased to announce the details of the AC Group Buy for the upcoming 2013 season. Please see the important information below to determine which air conditioner best suits your needs; just give us a call or email with your questions.

How to we determine which Air Conditioner size is best?

It is very important that your air conditioning unit is sized appropriately prior to installation. If the unit is undersized it will run continuously without reaching set point, particularly during peak hours. If the air conditioning unit is oversized, it will short cycle (turn on and off continuously) resulting in warm pockets of air in the home.
Below is a list of additional information we may require when determining how to correctly size the air conditioning unit in your home.
1. Square footage(excluding basement)
2. Ceiling height - main level and upstairs
3. Exposure(does the home back North, South, East, or West)
4. Size and number of large windows in the home

What SEER Rating or Efficiency is Best?

The SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating, determines how efficient you air conditioning unit is or how much electricity it consumes. The higher the SEER numbers the more efficient the AC. Our cooling season in Southwestern Ontario is typically only 3-4 months of the year therefore I would not recommend installing a super-efficient high seer air conditioning unit as the initial capital cost takes a long time to pay off especially with a short cooling season.
For most of our clients I recommend an air conditioning unit with a SEER rating of 13, but no higher than a 14.5. The difference in savings from a 13 seer 2 ton to a 14.5 seer 2 ton is $10.00 per cooling season.
Below is a list of questions we would ask in order to determine what SEER rating is best for you.
1. Do you have an existing inefficient air conditioning unit? (If you answered yes, there are rebates available if we remove an old AC unit and replace it with a 14.5 seer or greater).
In a new subdivision this is usually not the case.
2. Are you considered a heavy user? Do you set the air conditioner in May and run it until September without turning it off? Or would you only use the air conditioner on the hot humid days?
3. What temperature do you keep your home during the cooling season?
4. Do you prefer a colder setting or just enough to remove some humidity from the air?

What products do we recommend?

There are many air conditioning manufacturers available in the market today.
Premium products – these are sold and installed through a dealer network. Licensed and certified technicians are factory trained on installation and service.
Mid- Range products – these are builder quality products sold to any HVAC company. I would be pleased to discuss the differences in product lines.
At Four Season Comfort Heating & Cooling we recommend the Premium American Standard/Trane line of products. We have installed hundreds of these cooling systems within the GTA. Both we and our clients have been very satisfied with the quality and reliability of this product line. The American Standard line of air conditioning units were rated number 1 by Consumer Reports! Other product lines are also available as well.

Below is some pricing for the American Standard/Trane 13 and 14.5 Seer units. This pricing includes complete installation with wall mounted brackets and a 15ft copper line set. Warranty is 10 years parts and 5 year labour. HST is additional.

In order to participate in this group buy we require a $250.00 deposit prior to May 01, 2013. Payments may be made by check or interact email money transfer. Once this deposit is received we will send an invoice showing the deposit has been received and a tentative installation date. The deposit secures your pricing as well as your installation date. On May 02, 2013 we will determine how many participants we have in the group buy and apply the necessary discount to the invoice. If the air conditioner has been installed and paid prior to May 02/13 we will refund the applicable group buy discount to our client via check, Interact or email money transfer.

MISC Products
We would recommend the Honeywell line of humidifiers as well. Group buy pricing on the Honeywell HE225 for homes up to 3000sq ft is $325.00 installed. The Honeywell HE 265 for homes 3000sq ft – 4500sq ft is $395.00 installed.
Air Purification Systems
In terms of air cleaners I would recommend using a 3M filter for the first 6 months of your occupancy. I would not recommend making an investment on an indoor air quality system initially unless you are certain the ducts are clean. Once most of the construction debris has been removed from your ductwork I would recommend the Accuclean system which does not restrict air circulation like many of the media filters and other systems.
