General Frequently Asked Questions - Ariana Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd.

Question for our services

At Ariana Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd, we advise against covering your heat pump during winter, even chilly regions like Burnaby and North Vancouver. Heat pumps are designed to work in all weather conditions, and covering them could lead to reduced airflow and moisture buildup, potentially damaging the unit.
Determining the ideal HVAC unit size for your home depends on various factors such as total square footage, insulation quality, the number of windows, and more. It's crucial to get this right for optimal comfort and energy efficiency. Our expert team at Ariana Heating can perform a detailed load calculation to help you make the right choice.
While adding greenery around your outdoor unit can be visually pleasing, it's important to leave at least a two feet clearance around the unit for sufficient airflow and easy access for maintenance and repair. In regions like Vancouver and Richmond, where vegetation grows quickly, regular trimming may be necessary.
At Ariana Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd, we generally recommend the "auto" setting for better energy efficiency, especially during Coquitlam's hot summers or North Vancouver's cold winters. The fans only run when the temperature reuires it. However, if you prefer more constant air circulation and filteration, you might prefer the "on" setting.
Rating numbers of HVAC systems are measurements of efficiency. For example, a higher SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) indicates better energy efficiency in air conditioning systems, critical for hot regions like Richmond and Surrey. Our professionals at Ariana Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd can guide you to understand these numbers better.
AFUE stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. This rating is used for furnaces and indicates how much of the consumed fuel is actually converted to heat. A higher AFUE rating means a more efficient furnace, which is particularly important for homeowners in colder regions like Burnaby and North Vancouver.
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It's used to rate the efficiency of air conditioners and heat pumps. At Ariana Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd, serving Langley, Maple Ridge, and beyond, we often recommend systems with high SEER ratings to ensure maximum energy efficiency and cost savings.
HSPF stands for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor. It measures the efficiency of a heat pump. At Ariana Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd, we can help you understand what HSPF means for your heat pump's performance and efficiency.
A split system, common in residential homes in Vancouver and Richmond, has indoor and outdoor units. A package unit, on the other hand, combines these into one typically located outside. The team at Ariana Heating can help you understand which system is best suited for your home.
In general, it's a good idea to replace both units simultaneously as they're designed to work together for optimal efficiency and performance. Ariana Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd also specializes in such services, ensuring a seamless HVAC system operation.

A heat pump is a versatile HVAC system that provides both heating and cooling by transferring heat from one place to another. In the winter, it extracts heat from the outside air (even in cold temperatures) and moves it indoors. In the summer, it reverses direction and acts like an air conditioner, removing heat from your home.
