Here’s what our customers are saying about out service:

“One day this past summer, my AC failed to turn on. A friend recommended to contact Draft HVAC, the next day Selim was at my house and 20 minutes later my AC was up and running. He explained the issue and seemed to be honest and up front regarding what needed to be done. I will use his services again in the future. Recommend!” – Alexei Baturin

“What can I say… he’s the best one around by far!! He is a well experienced heating & air conditioning professional. I can guarantee you that.” – J-P Monette

“Selim came out to our place to quote a replacement air conditioner and hot water tank. He was honest, and did not try to sell us something we didn’t need. He answered all my questions promptly and honestly. I verified his reviews after we first met, and found my initial experience to be exactly as others had described. His quote was far better than any others we had received, and it wasn’t long before we had him lined up for the job. From start to finish the entire process was seamless, he didn’t rush the job(s), and made sure everything was done properly. He certainly takes pride in his work, and hands down I would recommend him to anyone looking for HVAC work. Thanks Selim!” – Ryan M

Air Conditioner Ottawa: Maintenance

You can do some of the basic air conditioning maintenance tasks yourself such as changing your filter. Learn more about the simple maintenance tasks that you can do in our article “All You Need to Know: Air Conditioning Maintenance.

However, you should leave the more complicated maintenance such as checking the coolant levels to a professional. Also, if you experience any mechanical, electrical or other technical issues that affect the proper workings of your air conditioner, contact the professionals at Draft Control.

It’s a good idea to have your air conditioner serviced before the summer heat begins. Our friendly technicians can come to your home and clean out your system and address any minor repairs that need to be done. Having regular annual maintenance done on your air conditioner will help you avoid more costly repairs down the road and ensure that your unit runs efficiently throughout the summer.

Air Conditioner Ottawa: Warning Signs that Something Isn’t Right

Here are some warning signs that your air conditioner is not working the way that it should. If you experience any of these signs, contact us to help your fix it before it becomes a larger problem:

You notice your air conditioner is pumping out warm air.

You notice that you are getting poor or wear airflow.

Your home isn’t cooling off enough or the cool air isn’t circulating properly.

You are hearing strange noises coming from your air conditioner.

The inside of your home feels unusually humid.

Some of the more common air conditioner repairs that a trained technician can do for you include:

Burnt out Capacitors: The start capacitor gives a jolt to the motor to make it start and the run capacitor gives a series of jolts to keep it working. If either burns out, your AC motor will not work.

Incorrect Refrigerant Levels: If your system has too much refrigerant, it will return to the compressor and can cause it to fail. If there isn’t enough refrigerant, your compressor will not be able to cool your house properly.

Corroded Evaporator Coils: The evaporator coils suck heat out of the air in your home and then send it back into the house through your air ducts as cold air. If they become damaged, they will need repair or replacement.

Leaking Refrigerant Fluid: If your refrigerant is leaking then there will probably be a build-up of ice on the copper lines or the evaporator coils. Refrigerant is a toxic substance known as freon and any leaks should only be handled by a professional.
