Beat the heat with BCRC Plumbing & Heating Ltd’s professionally installed air conditioner. Whether you are upgrading your current cooling system or installing a completely new unit, our licensed HVAC technicians offer years of experience and expertise to get the job done right the first time.
Shopping for a new or replacement air conditioner can be challenging. At BCRC Plumbing & Heating Ltd, we offer expert advice on the type and model of air conditioner units suitable for your home, and we carry a wide range of air conditioning systems to suit your budget and lifestyle. Many of our models have an Energy Star rating to protect the environment and keep your utility bills low. Some of the types of units we have available include:
The most popular cooling system in Vancouver is a central air conditioner. Central air conditioners use the current duct system used for your furnace to connect vents in your home to a central conditioning unit.
If you do not have a duct system, one can be installed during your home renovation. Although this may seem like a major investment, it significantly increases the value of your home in the long-term.
One of the biggest advantages of installing central air is aesthetics. The discrete vents blend in seamlessly with your home decor, and the central unit can be placed far away from the visible outdoor areas of your house.
Window air conditioner units are an affordable alternative to central air conditioning as it does not require any ducting. The efficient cooling system draws all the hot air out of the room and expels it outdoors. While these units are not considered as visually pleasing as ducted cooling, they are a great flexible choice for renters and small homes.
Not all windows can support this style of AC unit. Our experienced technicians can take accurate measurements and make a recommendation for a window air conditioner based on your needs. Sometimes, a window AC unit and a ceiling fan can cool a small room down significantly.
Perfect for homes that don’t have duct systems installed, the ductless mini-split system uses heat pump inverter technology to transform the warm air in the room to cool, fresh air. These quiet air conditioners come in flexible models that allow you to control the temperature of individual rooms in your home for more efficient heating and cooling.
Ductless mini-split systems are also energy-efficient and easy to install so you can enjoy fresh air faster. We also offer an optional built-in filtration system that captures dust, mould, and microorganisms to give you cleaner air so you can breathe easy.
If you have limited space or live in a rental, a portable room air conditioner is a perfect choice for keeping cool air in your home. Additionally, portable air conditioners both cool and dehumidify your air to give you a home free from airborne allergens.
If you need to maintain the humidity in your home to prevent overly-dry air, a great alternative is an evaporative cooler that keeps your home thermally comfortable without the use of chemicals. The unit uses the natural cooling mechanism that results from the evaporation of water in the air to control the temperature of your room. However, evaporative coolers do not have a reverse cycle function, making them unsuitable for heating the air in your home during winter.
The wrong-sized unit can mean poor heating and cooling, resulting in higher energy bills. Small units can quickly become overworked in large homes, quickly wearing out parts and increasing the risk of malfunctions. Oversized units can develop mould and mildew due to excessive moisture inside the system.
Our qualified technicians can help you find the perfect-sized air conditioner for your home with a comprehensive inspection and estimate process.
If you are looking to replace your current air conditioning system, or you want to install a new heating and cooling system in your home, there are a few factors to consider before choosing an AC unit.
The best way to find the most efficient air conditioning unit is to determine the load. Our qualified technicians can accurately estimate the size of the unit you need based on the load calculation which is determined by:
We use a precise algorithm to calculate the thermal load of your home and recommend the right cooling and heating system to keep the temperature controlled all year long. Our team of technicians can also make informed recommendations for the correct BTU level for your air conditioning unit to efficiently cool your home without adding to your utility bill.
Correct installation is vital for an optimally functioning air conditioning system. Our team of expert technicians offers fast, well-done AC installation to improve the efficiency of your system, lower your energy bills, and prevent common installation mistakes.
Poor installation can lead to the need for frequent repairs and poor air conditioning performance. Professional installation and AC servicing by the licensed technicians at BCRC Plumbing & Heating Ltd guarantees that the warranty on your unit remains valid to give you peace of mind.
Regular maintenance of your air conditioning system can prevent small mechanical issues from becoming big problems. We recommend scheduled maintenance twice per year depending on the size and style of your AC unit.
One of the most common issues with your air conditioner unit is the clogged air filter. Simply cleaning or switching out the air filters can significantly prolong the life of your unit and give you cleaner, fresher indoor air.
We also offer fast and reliable emergency air conditioner repairs 24 hours per day, 7 days per week to keep your home cool and comfortable all year long. Our experienced technicians respond to service calls in a timely manner and perform accurate diagnostics to determine the issue with your system. We are upfront and honest about our work and never recommend additional work or unnecessary replacements.
