Have you noticed summers in Vancouver are getting hotter and hotter each year? Unfortunately, it’s not your imagination, and it’s not a coincidence. Scientists are verifying the impact of global warming in Vancouver, and it’s hot.
Researchers predict more heat
In 2017, a well-respected climate study, “Climate Projections for Metro Vancouver”, predicted Vancouver would see average high temperatures during the summer increasing by 3.7 degrees Celsius by the 2050s and 6 degrees Celsius by the 2080s. According to the Vancouver Sun, by the 2050s, “Vancouver would be warmer than present-day San Diego [California]”.
Since temperatures are steadily rising, air conditioning is no longer the luxury it used to be. Instead, to remain comfortable in their homes through the summer, many homeowners now view central air conditioning to be as essential as a furnace or hot water heater.
Don’t be left alone in the heat. Prepare your home for summer with an AC installation as soon as possible.
Prepare for a new AC installation
Although purchasing and installing a new AC unit can feel like an intimidating and expensive task, if you do your homework in advance, you’ll make smart decisions that will benefit you and your family in the long run.
Keep this advice in mind when planning your home’s AC installation:
If your home wasn’t built with air conditioning in mind, you might face hurdles when installing a new AC unit. For example, if your home doesn’t already have ducts, you might need to consider alternative installations, such as a ductless-split. For standard centralized air conditioning, you’ll probably need a more extensive renovation before the AC installation.
When choosing an AC unit for your home, size matters. If it’s too small, the AC will be forced to work harder to cool your home. This will shorten its life expectancy and significantly increase your utility bills. On the other hand, if the unit is too large for your home, you’ll needlessly increase your energy consumption and pay higher bills all summer long. To be certain you’re making the right choice, before you make the purchase, consult with a licensed professional to determine the best size for an AC unit in your home.
To encourage Canadian homeowners to reduce their energy consumption and make wiser purchasing decisions when renovating or building new homes, CleanBC Better Homes provides a wide range of rebates for energy efficient appliances, including AC units. Research your options for a government rebate before you make your purchase.
AC installation should never be a DIY project. To ensure your AC is installed properly and safely, only trust a licensed professional with your AC installation.
