Residential Cooling

In addition to the frigid winters, Southern Ontario often endures some blistering hot summers. A cooling system break down can quickly make your home uncomfortable or affect your workplace productivity. SB Mechanical has been providing HVAC services for over 27 years. If you’re in need of air conditioner services, we have the technicians to help

Unlike heating systems, an air conditioning system is much more complex. Instead of using energy to create heat, it uses it to remove heat. Air conditioning absorbs and releases heat from inside and transfers it outdoors through a compressor located just outside the house.

Air conditioners of all kinds requires a great amount of electricity to operate, especially when outside temps are at their warmest! Want to save some money on your electricity bill? Consider making the switch to an energy efficient model. Whatever your cooling needs, we can provide a wide variety of air conditioner solutions. Our technicians can help you with routine air quality inspections and replacement of your old cooling systems.

What should you watch out for?

  • Warm air and poor or weak airflow
  • Inadequate cooling and circulation
  • Strange noises
  • Unusually high indoor humidity level

Air conditioning units generally last for around 10 years. Our technicians can help with repairs, replacements, and efficiency upgrades. Don’t risk melting when the summer temperature starts to rise.

What can you expect during a routine tune-up?

Cooling Services include:

  • Tightening electrical connections. This ensures your system is running safely.
  • Lubricating parts. When your system lacks lubrication, rubbing from moving parts can cause it to break down more often or more quickly.
  • Cleaning the condensate drain line. Cleaning this line takes care of any mold and clogs, which can cause leaks.
  • Cleaning the condenser coil and evaporator coil. These coils get dirty over time, decreasing airflow and the capacity to absorb heat.
  • Straightening coil fins. Aluminum fins on the coils can bend and decrease airflow.
  • Examining system controls. This makes sure your system is starting, running and shutting down correctly.
  • Check temperature and pressure of the refrigerant
