Investing in an Air

There are two things to consider when thinking about air conditioners. Size and Efficiency.
Bigger doesn’t mean better. When choosing the right air conditioner for your home, we take many factors into consideration including, square footage, window size and direction, as well as insulation values in your walls and attic.

An air conditioner doesn’t just cool your home, it also removes humidity. While an over-sized unit will cool your home quickly, it will not have time to effectively remove humidity, leaving you feeling cold and clammy.

Choosing an efficient model can be a tough decision. The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is the air conditioner efficiency rating. Like your furnace’s AFUE percentage rating, a higher SEER equals higher efficiency. Minimum code in Canada is now 13 SEER and ENERGY STAR® is 14 SEER but some central air conditioners can reach as high as 26 SEER.

While we pride ourselves as being leaders in efficiency, we also believe in practicality. That’s why we believe the initial higher costs associated with high-SEER units is unwarranted for our climate. We know the decision is a balance between efficiency and budget and we will offer solutions that make sense for you and your family

Energy ratings to consider

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER):

The measure of the amount of cooling produced divided by the amount of energy used. The higher the SEER Rating, the more comfort you’ll generally get from each energy dollar invested.

We offer an annual A/C maintenance plan. With the Sauve Heating Family Plan, you’re getting protection that includes:

  • Two visits per year (one for comprehensive maintenance and one tune-up)
  • Tracking & analysis (looking at your A/C electric bill, detecting potential air conditioning problems, etc.)
  • 30% off parts & labour for air conditioning repair service
  • 50% off diagnostic fees for A/C repair & service

An A/C tune-up includes; condenser coil cleaning, calibrating the thermostat, filter inspection/replacement, checking electrical connections, gauging air flow, evaluating the blower & components, checking refrigerant levels and pressure, lubricating moving parts, cleaning of key components and much more.

An experienced and friendly A/C technician from Sauve Heating & Air Conditioning will be available to inspect and tune up your air conditioning system in Kemptville, Prescott, Brockville, Merrickville and surrounding communities. They’ll advise should anything be out of the ordinary and whether further attention is required.

There are, of course, many different types of HVAC maintenance. For starters, there’s proactive maintenance for your heating & cooling systems.

Common types of proactive maintenance include:

  • Furnace tune-ups
  • Air conditioning tune-ups (and top-offs)
  • Filter maintenance (ensuring that you change filters at the right intervals, and select the right filters, can save you money and help ensure you’re breathing better air)

There’s also the kind of HVAC maintenance that happens when you notice irregularities with your heating or cooling systems. If you’re struggling to reach or maintain the desired temperature in your home or business, we can help with a diagnosis and suggested course of repair.

If you’re experiencing a HVAC emergency, such as a broken A/C or loss of heating, we can dispatch a HVAC technician ASAP to diagnose the issue (e.g. blown fan, broken heating coils, etc.) and repair the furnace or A/C promptly.

Sauve Heating & Air Conditioning is your go-to partner for HVAC maintenance in Kemptville, Prescott, Brockville, Merrickville and surrounding communities. Our team is extremely diligent when it comes to HVAC maintenance and we guarantee our technicians will take the time to properly review and maintain all heating & cooling systems we have installed and repaired.

The term “HVAC” refers to “Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning.” It’s a catch-all phrase that’s common in the HVAC industry but may mean less to you. What it really comes down to is heating and cooling.

For you, the homeowner, a good HVAC system means having a furnace, ductwork and (possibly) an air conditioning system that are in good working order and are delivering home comfort by giving you warmth in the cold winter and cool air on those hot, humid summer days here in Eastern Ontario.

When our team looks at HVAC systems, we look at the whole picture, from your furnace and blower unit; your outside air conditioner; your ductwork and ventilation; to the gas lines and more. Everything in your HVAC system needs to be working in unison to keep your home comfortable year-round.

For commercial HVAC systems, we’re talking about the comfort and functionality of businesses – from restaurants and retail establishments to warehouses, industrial facilities and a wide array of businesses.

Whether you run a takeout coffee shop in Kemptville or a distribution centre in Brockville, you’re relying on your HVAC system to be in proper working shape, 24/7 year-round.
