Air Conditioning Heat Pumps Toronto

Air conditioning heat pumps Toronto are basically an air conditioner that can also work in reverse to provide heat. In warm weather, the heat pump absorbs heat from the air inside and moves it outside, thereby providing air conditioning. In cooler weather, the heat pump provides heat by removing heat from the air outside and moving it inside

Types of Air Conditioning Heat Pumps:

Split System Heat Pump

Packaged Heat Pump (Rooftop Unit)

Duct or Ductless Heated Pumps

Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) Pump 

What exactly are air conditioning heat pumps? And is it the right choice for your space?

Air Conditioning Heat pumps have been used for quite a long time. Here in the Greater Toronto Area, people are not so familiar with heat pumps. That’s because, until recently, heat pumps could not provide sufficient heat in a climate where temperatures frequently drop below 20 degrees. Today that’s changing, because heat pump technology has improved to the point where they can be efficient and effective

What are Air Conditioning Heat Pumps and their advantages?

Split System Heat Pump

Split system heat pumps, unlike most conventional heat pump systems, are generally ductless. This allows for one of the split system’s great advantages. Many models of these systems allow for multiple indoor air handlers to be attached to a single outdoor condenser. Each of these indoor air handlers can be programmed by individual thermostats, thus keeping individual rooms at their own specific temperature. Being able to control specific rooms saves both money and energy. Without the restrictions of a duct system, air handlers can be placed anywhere from the ceiling, the floor, or even on the wall, making them much more flexible in terms of design.

The split system heat pump redefines efficiency by getting rid of the duct system necessary in packaged heat pumps and conventional HVAC systems. If you have more questions about heat pumps or would like one installed, contact City Air Toronto online or give us a call at 416-230-3689

Packaged Heat Pump (also called Rooftop Units)

A heat pump package unit is a great all-in-one heating and cooling solution for spaces without a lot of extra room. These all-in-one HVAC systems are designed to be installed either on the roof or the ground beside the house for efficient heating and cooling performance.

Packaged heat pump units contain both a heat pump and an air handler. Unlike traditional heat pumps, these systems combine everything in a single unit for buildings that don’t have a basement or crawl space. The packaged unit is connected to the ductwork to circulate warmer or cooler air throughout the building depending on the season.

In addition, they deliver quiet, year-round comfort from a single, self-contained unit. These high-efficiency units operate as an air conditioner during warm weather, and in the winter deliver heat pump-generated warmth.

Duct or Ductless Heated Pumps

It’s important to note that both ducted and mini-split heat pumps operate using the same fundamental principle of transferring heat from one place to another, as opposed to creating the heat itself, like a traditional furnace or electric baseboard.

Ductless mini split heat pumps are beautifully efficient, providing consistent room comfort in both small and large living areas. The mini split system is comprised of two components; a condenser, housing the compressor situated outside of the home and an air-handling unit.

Many consumers are simply more familiar with ducted heat pump systems due to the relative newness of the ductless unit, and therefore are more comfortable with it as their heating system. With good airflow exchange, filtration and humidity control, it does present reason to stick to what you know.

As an experienced HVAC company, we can help you decipher which unit will most benefit you and your home in the long run by analyzing photos or conducting a home visit prior to installation.

Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF Heat Pump)

VRF technology provides the ability for multiple indoor units or zones to operate on the same system. VRF systems can either be a heat pump system or a heat recovery system, which provides simultaneous heating and cooling.

Some units heat recovery system uses a multi-port distribution controller which acts as a central location allowing better refrigerant distribution to all indoor units. These systems typically take less piping and connections to configure between outdoor unit multi-port distribution and indoor units.

There are some model that are rated for use at below freezing temperatures.

    5 star review  Old furnace died in the new year holidays, as all the shops were closing, during covid lockdown. I didn't have much hope it could get fixed or replaced any time soon. Called City Air Toronto, and Sylvio came that day, assessed the situation and gave me the repair versus replace options. He was able to replace it and have the heat back on, so the kids could sleep warm, that very night.

    5 star review  Originally called Reliance Home Comfort for A/C relocate as they are who installed the unit back in 2016. Reliance gave us a huge runaround. Spoke with Sunny from City Air on Monday and Julian was at my home Wednesday Morning. Julian was so professional and polite. It has been a pleasure dealing with City Air and our unit looks great. Julian left the workspace spotless. 100% Recommendation, we will be calling City Air for all of our heating-A/C and Duct work from now on!!

    5 star review  My father-in-law's air conditioner wasn't working the first really hot day of the summer. I called City Air Toronto after seeing their favorable reviews on BBB. The technician, Enrico came over within an hour and quickly troubleshoot the problem to be a blown capacitor in the outside compressor unit. He had to go back to the warehouse to get a replacement part but returned very quickly to repair the A/C. He was very courteous and explained the problem professionally. The total repair bill was very reasonable and matches exactly as their posted rates. I will definitely use them again if I need A/C or heating service.
