A Great Time To Install A New A/C Unit
If you are considering up-grading or installing "Central Air Conditioning" now is a great time to buy. During the last few years central air conditioners have changed dramatically and are the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly units to date.
As a home or business owner you want comfort and reliability — you also want the unit to be cost effective and environmentally friendly. Healthy Home Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd. keeping pace with this advancing technology is qualified to help you select and install air conditioning for your application.
The SEER rating of a unit is the cooling output in Btu (British thermal unit) during a typical cooling season. The higher the unit's SEER rating the more energy efficient it is.1
Healthy Home Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd. takes the same care in selecting and installing air conditioning as it uses to select and install furnaces. Size, building design, usage, a heat/gain calculation, — quiet, comfort, reliable, cost effective, health and safety, your needs and your wants! These considerations are all key factors with our recommendations for you.
No Ducts — No Problem
There are several situations where a ductless air conditioning system should be considered over a traditional ducted one.
- º Room additions
- º Cooling a garage or work space
- º Cooling older homes without existing ductwork
- º When ducts will not fit
- º To replace a window/room air conditioner
Like conventional HVAC systems, a ductless air conditioning system locates the noisy compressor and condenser outside the house. When doing a retro-fit this system will be the lest disruptive construction. Thin copper tubing pumps refrigerant directly to discreet wall mounted blowers inside the building.
Easy Ductless Air Conditioner Installation — copper tubing runs through a small 3 to 4 inch opening in the wall which connects the indoor and outdoor units. Refrigerant is cycled through the lines from the outdoor condensing unit to the indoor unit, where the air is quietly distributed to the interior space.2

When To Consider A High Velocity System
A central air conditioning system using high velocity air forced through small ducts (also called mini-ducts), typically round, flexible hoses about 2 inches in diameter. Using the principle of aspiration, the higher velocity air mixes more effectively with the room air, eliminating temperature discrepancies and drafts. The smaller, flexible tubing used for a mini-duct system allows it to be more easily installed in historic buildings, and structures with solid walls, such as log homes. These small ducts are typically longer contiguous pieces, and therefore less prone to leakage. Another added benefit of this type of ducting is the prevention of foreign particle buildup within the ducts, due to a combination of the higher velocity air, as well as the lack of hard corners.

Healthy Home Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd. installed a 6 ton Geothermal water to forced air unit with a 5" MAC2000 filter, a VanEE 100H HRV, and a April Aire 700 Humidifier. The geothermal system for heating and air conditioning was installed through a forced air duct-work system. An HRV system was moisture ducted from bathrooms, kitchen, and laundry. All fresh air is dumped back into the central ducting system. Each area has an exhaust override button.
Healthy Home Heating & Air Conditioning Ltd. installed a ADP 75,000BTU air handler with a hot water coil, as per the designer provided drawings the heat loss/gain report. The system has a 5" MAC1400 media filter installed.
The VanEE 100H HRV system was installed by moisture ducted and dump fresh back into the central ducting system. Each area of high moisture has an exhaust override button.
The Viessman Vitodens 100 boiler is wall mount installed. The boiler was connected to 1/2" radiant in-floor piping and to a Weil McLain indirect 50 gallon hot water tank which is used for potable water.
