Calgary Air Conditioning Installation

Beat the Heat With A New Air Conditioning System Install In Calgary

Getting the most out of summer can sometimes mean getting relief from the heat. Even though Calgary’s winters are more notorious than its summers, we still deal with some soaring temperatures that only an air conditioner can combat.

You might be thinking of getting a portable air conditioner for your Calgary home, but those units are large and clunky, taking up a large portion of whatever room they’re in. Plus, they only cool down the room they’re set up in, not your whole house. Portable air conditioners just won’t cut it for a family home. For true relief from the sweltering heat, central air conditioners are the way to go.

Let Knight come up with the right air conditioning system for your southern Alberta home. You can expect excellent customer service, expert AC installation and maintenance, and professionals who take pride in helping make your living space the most comfortable it can be!

Air Conditioning Installation FAQs

Maybe you don’t need to be convinced on a new air conditioner installation, because you already have one in your home. But nothing lasts forever, and your air conditioner has been around for a while. How do you know when it’s time to replace it?

Most air conditioners will last around 15 years, and often longer with regular maintenance and cleaning.

If your air conditioner is more than 8 years old, it might be worth your while to upgrade to a new AC unit. The design and technology has improved rapidly in the last few years, and an upgrade can mean lower energy bills, operating costs, and greater home comfort.

Sizing is a big part of the AC installation process. Expressed in terms of BTUs (British Thermal Units), the higher a number is means the greater the cooling capacity of that AC unit.

An air conditioner that’s too large is just as bad as one that’s too small—neither will get your living space to the level of comfort you want. Factors on sizing include:

  • Size and layout of your home (How much square footage does your home have? Is the floor plan open, or more divided?)
  • Window placement and landscaping (Do you have lots of south-facing windows? Any trees to help shade your home from the sun?)
  • Ductwork and insulation (Is your existing ductwork able to handle a modern air conditioner?)

Your best bet to correctly sizing your new air conditioning system is to ask the experts. Consult a Knight professional who will factor in the specific size requirements for your home, your budget, and your energy efficiency and comfort goals.

Air conditioners are rated for efficiency using SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). The greater the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the AC unit is.

Typically, air conditioners with higher SEER ratings do cost more, so you’ll want to buy the most efficient air conditioner you can afford.

How to Get the Right Central Air Conditioning System for Your Home

Here are some key factors to consider when choosing a system:

  1. Your home’s square footage should be matched to the system. It might sound like a good idea to get the most powerful system around, or to save and get a small one. A system that is too small won’t cool your home. A system that is too big will be working inefficiently all the time, costing you more in energy bills. It will also leave a lot of humidity in your house, potentially leading to mould or other damage. You have to get the right size for your home. To find out what you need, you can try the sizing chart here.
  2. The SEER rating. SEER stands for seasonal energy efficiency rating. The higher the SEER number, the more energy efficient it is – Knight recommends that you go no lower than 13 (they currently go up to 24.5).
  3. Is it Energy Star rated? Energy Star systems work more efficiently and will save you money on electricity.
  4. What are your noise requirements? The condensing unit of a central air conditioning system sits outside your home, but some units can be heard through the ductwork. If quiet operation is important to you, make sure your Knight technician is aware of this.
  5. Do you need different cooling zones in your home? The rooms of your home that are south-facing will require more work to cool than north facing ones. Having multiple thermostats that can control different temperature zones will make for a uniform temperature throughout your home.
  6. Budgeting. For many of us, the cost of a new AC is important, and may be more important than energy efficiency.
