Our Air Conditioner Solutions
Buying a central air conditioning system
If your AC unit is more than 15 years old, making odd noises, leaking or emitting a bad smell, it may be time to buy a new high-efficiency system. Our Energy Management Consultants (EMCs) can design a cooling solution specific to the layout and construction of your home so you and your family stay cool and comfortable even on the hottest days of the year.
Renting a central air conditioning system
Avoid the upfront costs* of buying and installing a new air conditioning system by renting through our Enercare AdvantageTM or Enercare Smarter AdvantageTM programs. You benefit from affordable monthly payments, free maintenance every two years and repairs covered by our licensed technicians.
Buying a Heat Pump
A heat pump is a great option for homes that don’t have built-in ductwork. It’s also a handy solution for cooling add-on rooms such as a garage or sunroom. Combining a heat pump with a ductless air conditioner lets you cool and heat your home year-round with just one HVAC system.
Renting a Heat Pump
Renting is a convenient option if you don’t want to worry about upfront payments, installation charges and expensive repairs.* With our Enercare AdvantageTM rental program, you get the benefits of low monthly payments and regular maintenance done by our expert technicians at no extra cost.
Keep your air ducts free of debris
Dust, dirt, pet hair, mould, fungus and other debris can prevent your air conditioner from working as efficiently as it could – possibly raising your energy bills as a result. If you notice a musty smell when your air conditioning kicks in, consider a duct cleaning from our team.
Improve the quality of your indoor air
Adding HEPA air filtration to your HVAC system decreases airborne pollutants to improve the quality of your indoor air. Ultraviolet (UV) lights, heat recovery ventilators (HRV) and energy recovery ventilators (ERV) can further sanitize your home’s air, control moisture levels and reduce odours and vapours.

How Does Air Conditioning Work?
Central Air Conditioning
Most central air conditioning systems are made up of indoor and outdoor units – called a “split” system. The outdoor unit contains a condenser coil, compressor, fan and electrical components. The indoor portion, called the evaporator coil or “A” coil, sits on top of your natural gas or propane furnace.
- A central air conditioning system will start up when the attached thermostat senses that the temperature has increased above a preset level.
- Liquid refrigerant inside the evaporator coil converts to gas. As the warm humid indoor air passes over it, the evaporator coil absorbs heat and removes humidity, which cools the air.
- The blower fan on your furnace then circulates the cooled air through your home’s ductwork and into the living areas.
- Meanwhile, the refrigerant gas travels outside your house through a copper pipe (line set) to the compressor. The compressor pressurizes the gas and moves the refrigerant through the condenser coil. As the condenser fan pulls cool air through the condenser coil, it changes the refrigerant back into liquid, continuing the refrigeration cycle.
- The humidity that was pulled from the air turns into condensation, which is removed from the evaporator coil through the condensate drain line.
- The heated air in the home circulates through the cold air returns to the system to be cooled down and dehumidified again.
Ductless Air Conditioning
Ductless air conditioners are also split systems with outdoor and indoor components. These are connected by a copper conduit that also houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing and a condensate drain.
Ductless AC cools rooms only where an indoor unit is installed. Depending on the size of your home and how many rooms you want to cool, you may have multiple indoor units (or heads) powered by the single outdoor unit. The indoor units come in many shapes and sizes, including wall-mounted versions, floor consoles and ceiling cassettes.
Ductless AC units do not sit in your window or plug into a wall outlet — they are wired just like a central AC system, but without the need to install any ductwork. That makes them a great choice for adding cooling to an older home that is heated by a boiler. Because a ductless air conditioning system uses refrigerant and is wired into your home’s electrical panel, you’re required to have a licensed professional install it.
Common Questions About Air Conditioning
- A new high-efficiency central air conditioner in Ontario usually costs $3,500 to $6,000. With Enercare, you pay the price — no hidden charges — with installation by a fully insured and licensed company and a warranty of at least one year included. The cost of a new air conditioner for your home depends on four things:
- Technical requirements including the size of your home, floor plan, number of stories, existing ductwork and cooling load
- preferences such as energy efficiency, sound output, air filtration sizes (which depend on allergies or other sensitivities) and comfort-enhancing options
- Personal choices such as extended warranties, maintenance plans and guarantees
- Code requirements including safety, licensing and building code requirements
- Several factors affect the size of the unit you need, including the size and age of your home, air flow, insulation and how many windows and doors you have. To make sure you get the right-sized unit for your needs, it’s crucial to have a professional evaluate your home and calculate heat loss and air flow. Incorrect AC sizing may reduce the lifespan of your unit and lead to higher utility costs because your home is not cooling down properly.
- Yes, if you have a central air conditioner. The air conditioner works with the furnace fan to transfer cool air throughout the home. We recommend that you change or clean your furnace filter every three months.
- The average lifespan of an air conditioning system is 10–15 years. But the age of your unit is only one factor to consider. Other reasons you may need to replace your air conditioner include safety, frequent breakdowns, installation quality and improper sizing.
