It’s essential that condo owners maintain a reliable heating system in their Toronto condo year-round, in order to keep themselves and their tenants comfortable. Well-maintained condo heating systems help keep energy bills lower, in addition to preventing mold or water from causing issues and preventable damage.
At Service Express, our professionals know how to remove any and all guesswork when it comes to equipping your Toronto condo with a reliable heating system. Let’s take a quick look at how Toronto condo heating systems are run and review what you need to know to operate and maintain them.
Centralized Heating Systems
Centralized heating systems for condos are larger than individual systems. However, when compared to smaller systems, they’re much more cost-effective when it comes to heating large condo buildings.
Large condos typically rely on central heating systems that regulate heat distribution with a heat pump. With a heat pump, condo buildings have a reliable way to either heat or cool their interiors with heat pumps that regulate themselves to automatically change A/C modes.
Individual Heating Systems
Individual heating systems aren’t managed by a building caretaker or property owner. Instead, they’re usually chosen by condo tenants who need their own heating solution.
Individual heating systems may be more cost-effective for tenants if they live in a small condo, but they also leave them responsible for their condo heat pump repair bills in cases where the pump’s reversing valve loses its ability to cool itself down.
Space heaters are most commonly found in individual rooms in condos and apartment buildings that require extra heating. WIndow units and space heaters are efficient at heating small spaces and are great for staying warm, but they’re nowhere close to being as effective as a condo-wide heating solution — such as a centralized heating system that relies on a main boiler to control a condo’s overall temperature.
Heat pumps are responsible for ensuring your heating system doesn’t overheat and stop functioning. Heat pumps are what allow your condo’s heating system to switch between being able to heat or cool each room.
If your condo’s heat pump isn’t properly heating or cooling the way it should be, it may be time to contact the professionals. It’s essential that the heating system is treated as quickly as possible, to prevent it from prolonged exposure to higher temperatures.
Ductless heaters are advanced heating solutions that use a hyper-efficient heating window, based on a special refrigerant. Ductless heaters use high-tech refrigerants to achieve heat exchanges that are, on average, up to 30% more efficient than heat exchanges seen in traditional heating window units.
Ductless heating systems are great options for condos that need individualized climate control and are the go-to standard for heating and air combo systems in buildings such as hotels and resorts. If you’re wondering whether ductless heaters are the right heating solution for your condo, the HVAC experts at Service Express can provide you with product recommendations based on your building’s size and existing heating system.
