Stay Cool with Our Air Conditioning in Kingston

Kingston and the surrounding Ontario communities lie within a humid continental climate. This means that our summers remain warm and humid. Although average temperatures tend to stay mild, they can easily reach 26 degrees Celsius or higher on any summer day. Fortunately, the inside of your home doesn’t have to fluctuate with the weather. Keep interiors cool and comfortable with proper, seasonal maintenance of your air conditioning system from Kingston Home Heating. And when your system fails, you can depend on us for effective, professional air conditioning repair throughout the Kingston area. We are ready for your repair call 24 hours a day.


Improve Your Efficiency with Regular Maintenance

Your system consists of a condensing unit and evaporator coil. Once the refrigerant gas compresses and chills in the condensing unit, it makes its way to the coil. There, it creates cool air to circulate through your home. With so many important parts, one small issue can throw off your unit’s efficiency, but you can keep on top of cooling efficiency and energy savings with regular air conditioner maintenance services.


Before the cooling season begins, make sure you schedule an annual AC check and tune-up. It will add years of use to your system, can keep your warranty active, save you money on your power bill, and help you avoid having to call for emergency air conditioning repairs from your local Kingston AC technician, which can be cost you in both time and money. At the heart of any standard air conditioning tune-up is a thorough professional cleaning of your unit’s exterior, coils, condenser, and coil fins. The rest of our air conditioner tune-up, with appropriate replacements as needed, includes:

  • Check the coolant level and add refrigerant if needed
  • Check lines for refrigerant leaks
  • Check primary and secondary drains
  • Test and calibrate the thermostat
  • Inspect and tighten electrical connections
  • Inspect and oil blower motor
  • Inspect and tighten blower belt
  • Inspect and clean condenser and indoor coil
  • Inspect condenser and indoor coil
  • Inspect and lubricate bearings
  • Inspect compressor and wiring connections
  • Inspect ductwork for leaks and obstructions
  • Monitor an air condition cycle


Of course, you can help maintain performance and protect your system by regularly changing your furnace filter and cleaning leaves, dirt, and debris from the outside unit.

Do you have an aging or neglected air conditioning unit and/or ductwork in your home? Has your system started blowing warm air or none at all even though you can hear the motor running?

  • Reduced airflow from the vents
  • Strange noises such as grinding or squealing 
  • Warm air instead of cold
  • Strange and/or bad smells, such as mustiness or burning
  • Leaks coming from the unit

How to Know When to Repair or Replace

How old is too old to justify making one more repair to an air conditioning system? How soon is too soon to give up on an inefficient or troublesome one instead of calling for another air conditioning repair? A Kingston Home Heating technician will help you make an honest appraisal during a service or repair call. 


Sometimes the solution is simply to repair and ensure you continue with regular maintenance to extend the life of your system if:

  • Your AC unit is less than 10 years old
  • A repair cost is less than 1/3 than the replacement cost
  • You still have an active warranty


While replacing an air conditioning system can be an investment, it may be worth the price tag in energy savings and fewer or no repair bills. We can help you choose an economical and efficient air conditioner if your old one has more than one of these problems:

  • Your warranty has expired
  • Your AC unit is more than 10 years old
  • You’re paying for frequent repairs
  • Repair expenses have become half of what a new unit will cost
  • The old unit causes dust, air quality or humidity problems


Hopefully this information has been helpful. Whether you’re going to buy a replacement or invest in more air conditioning repairs, our Kingston technicians are here to help!
