Energy Efficient Cooling to Beat the Ottawa Summer

Summer is just around the corner. If you’ve ever been through one of Ottawa’s infamous humid summers you know that going without a proper cooling system is a big challenge. Unfortunately, not all units are created equal. Selecting one that matches the amount you want to pay is only one part of the purchasing equation. You will also want to consider how much it’s going to cost you once it’s installed.  The expert advice from professionals at Reliance Holmes Heating and Cooling will go a long way towards helping you make the right decision.

State of the Art, Energy Efficient and Dependable

Air conditioners have come a long way recently.  A combination of federal regulation and technological advances by manufacturers has made ACs quieter and more energy efficient than ever!

Air conditioning units use a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or SEER, to inform consumers about a unit’s energy performance.  The higher this number is, the better it is at keeping your costs down. Federal Energy Efficiency Regulations, state that the minimum allowable rating for Canadian ACs is 13.  If a unit has more than 14.5, it receives an Energy Star designation – an internationally recognized, government-backed symbol of a product’s role in helping us all save money and protect the environment.  Some of the leading brands we carry at Reliance Holmes Heating carry ratings of more than 16!

All of Reliance Holmes’ AC line-up is Energy Star compliant.  According to Hydro Ottawa, these units can save you up to 70% on your summer energy bill.  Additional features such as enhanced humidity control will also allow you to get the most out of your unit, while keeping your energy bill down and reducing your house’s carbon footprint.
