FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions


My heating/cooling equipment is not working. What should I do?

A) Check the thermostat. Someone may have changed the setting on the thermostat on purpose, or accidentally, when cleaning or dusting. Make sure the setting is right.

B) Check to see that the unit has power. Is the power out in your home? Check the breaker or fuse box to make sure there is power going to the unit. If not, reset the breaker or change the fuse.
If it does not stay on, do not reset or change the fuse again. Call BELCOMFORT at

C) If there is power to the unit, change or clean any air filters thoroughly. Blocked airflow can stop a unit. For replacement filters, call BELCOMFORT at 416 255-4779 .

When should I replace my heating or air conditioning system?

Assuming you have been keeping the old system properly maintained, consider replacing it when it no longer works to your satisfaction, call in BELCOMFORT to get the advice of experts.
The solution may be a simple repair or upgrade that BELCOMFORT can take care of it, but, if a new system is required, BELCOMFORT will let you know.
If repair bills are mounting up or your costs are rising faster than the utility rates, new systems can offer up to 60% increased efficiency compared to older systems, not to mention better performance and peace of mind.




How much do heating and air conditioning units cost?

There are so many variables answering this question with a dollar value is impossible. The size of your house, the systems themselves, the need for ductwork, thermostat, air filters and other accessories are all factors.
One thing you can be sure of is a straight answer from BELCOMFORT . Our experts will give you a choice of systems to fill your needs and show you the benefits of each
to help you make an informed decision about what is right for your comfort.




Do I call BELCOMFORT when I am building a new home?

Absolutely! In fact, the sooner the better. If you contact BELCOMFORT when you are designing, we can make certain the right unit for your home has a place and builders don’t have to back up and tear down walls to make room.



How long do new units last?

With proper maintenance from BELCOMFORT , a new air conditioner will perform well for 15 to 20 years and a gas furnace will last anywhere from 20 to 25 years.



How often should my unit be serviced?

It’s a good idea to have a qualified technician from BELCOMFORT take a look at your heating and air conditioning once each year as per manufacturerrsquo;s recommendations.
We recommend an a/c check in the spring and a heating check in the fall.
The BELCOMFORT technician will inspect all aspects of your system from the thermostat to the chimney.



What difference does duct cleaning make?

Dust, dirt, cat and dog dander, grease, mold, bacteria... a whole host of stuff lives in your ducts. It’s a good idea to have it cleaned out every few years...
for your family’s health, for the efficiency of your heating and cooling, and for the cleanliness of your house. You should also get it done when you are installing new equipment,
because chances are the new blower will be more powerful and stir up a lot of bits that have been sitting in your ducts, undisturbed. BELCOMFORT can take care of your ducts.



How often should I change my filters?

When your forced air heating system is in full swing – October through April – fiber filters should be replaced once a month.
If you find they are really full of dust and stuff in the peak of the season, they can be changed more often. If your air conditioning is also forced air, the filters should be changed in the summer months, as well.
BELCOMFORT
carries a wide variety of filters.



What is the difference between the thicker pleated filters and the spun glass?

The paper-like media filters are finer and will collect smaller bits of airborne solids. They are a little more expensive but they are also significantly more effective at cleaning the air.
