Air Conditioning

Refrigeration and air conditioning are core components in Canada to battle the summer heat. Air conditioning technology is being updated very quickly. The average lifespan of an air conditioner is about 10-15 years. Older air conditioners are not only expensive to maintain but also have a high energy consumption because they have a reduced cooling efficiency. This will cause electricity bills to increase year after year. Generally, it is recommended to replace one after 10 years as repair costs can be up to half the cost of a new air conditioner. The energy needed for air conditioning costs a lot normally so a well-oiled and newly designed cooling unit will provide a cheaper and smoother summer experience.

When should I change my Air Conditioner?

So how can I tell if my air conditioner needs to be replaced or serviced?

The main signs that you may need a replacement, or a service are when your air conditioner is making strange noises, or your cooling performance is getting worse. Other signs are that if the outside unit is dirty, stop airflow, or anything out of the ordinary. Mas Air Home Comfort can take care of your maintenance if your unit needs to be serviced.  

If you choose to replace or purchase a new unit, our Equipment and Home Assessment Specialists will evaluate your air conditioner based on its type, age, and usage habits. They will determine if it needs to be replaced or serviced and recommend a maintenance plan or a specific air conditioner model.

Once the assessment is complete, our professional licensed staff will perform the air conditioning installation or maintenance process quickly, accurately, and reliably. We focus on proper air conditioner installation and maintenance, testing and tuning a range of factors such as circuitry, plumbing, and equipment compatibility to ensure a seamless process. After the installation is completed, we also have regular follow-up phone calls to ensure 100% installation completion and satisfaction surveys. 

How to choose the right type of air conditioner and payment method.

In terms of air conditioner types, there are currently three mainstream air conditioners on the market in Canada: 

  • 13 SEER,
  • 14 SEER and, 
  • 16 SEER.


SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is the result of dividing the total amount of heat removed from the room by the total amount of electricity consumed when cooling with an air conditioning unit. The higher the number, the higher the cooling efficiency, but the higher the price will be.

Renter or owner-occupier

It is recommended that you choose a 13 SEER air conditioner. This is relatively more cost-effective in terms of price and maintenance costs

Family that uses a lot of air conditioning

It is recommended to choose 14 SEER or higher air conditioners. The 14+ SEERs have relatively energy-saving and noise-reducing technology, but the price is also relatively higher. The price differences between 13 SEER and 16 SEER are about $1000-$1500, respectively.

This means that the difference in the price of higher SEER air conditioners in Canada is generally 3-4 months of cooling per year. High SEER units are generally recommended for installation in the southern United States or South America where they run for long periods each day, making them more cost-effective.

However, the selection of a specific air conditioner model depends on the size of your house, the structure of your house and ductwork, the matching of your electrical system, and the planned future use of the air conditioner. Please allow our professionals to suggest model types as they have years of experience for the best model for your home.

There are two main options for payment: direct buyout and installment payment.


For the same air conditioner, the 5-year installment fee is a few hundred dollars higher than the direct buyout, but it can significantly reduce the one-time payment pressure of the customer. The installment method is an open loan, which means that you can pay the balance at any time without charging additional interest on the remaining parts.

Direct buyout

The benefits of a direct buyout are: the price is relatively lower and the problem is solved quickly. We will do all the installation and replacements on the same day at the earliest for direct buyouts, while installment payment may take one working day to approve personal credit and repayment ability. 

Indoor and Outdoor Air Conditioning Units

冷气 1

The indoor unit and outdoor unit of an air conditioner belong to the same cooling system.

Outdoor unit

It is mainly composed of a compressor, condenser tube, fan motor, and other components. The compressor compresses the refrigerant (in the air conditioning system, a substance that enables heat transfer through evaporation and condensation) and then obtains high-pressure room temperature refrigerant after heat dissipation. It then transports it to the indoor evaporator to decompress and absorb heat for cooling.

Indoor unit

Mainly consists of a fan and an evaporator. The evaporator converts refrigerant liquid into gas, thus absorbing heat from the air in the home.

Simply put, the indoor unit absorbs heat and the outdoor unit exerts heat. The indoor unit and the outdoor unit work in tandem for the air conditioner to function properly. Usually, only the external unit needs to be replaced as the internal unit lasts longer than the external unit. Replacing the internal machine can cost a lot so we generally don’t replace it unless it is necessary.

Choose the right air conditioner according to your house structure

Air conditioning units are divided into standard units and side split charge units. In many new houses nowadays, the spacing between rooms is very small, and some of them share the aisle with neighbors. If you choose a larger standard unit, it will interfere with the common areas and cause mobility problems, so a side split unit will be more suitable for this situation.

Mas Air Home Comfort will choose the type of air conditioner and installation method that is best suited to the specifics of your home. We stand by our customers and pay attention to every detail to ensure 100% satisfaction with your air conditioning installation and repair.
