AC Replacement

We Replace Aging Or Failed Air Conditioning Units

AC Replacement Service Parksville, Qualicum, Nanoose, and The Oceanside Area.

Replacing an old, faulty, or inefficient air conditioner is sometimes required to maintain a comfortable indoor environment, especially during the warmest months of the year. An outdated AC unit can lead to an array of problems, such as inadequate cooling, frequent breakdowns, and skyrocketing energy bills.

When your air conditioning system shows signs of wear and tear or increased inefficiency, it may be more cost-effective and energy-saving to consider a replacement. Investing in a new AC unit will not only enhance your comfort and indoor air quality but also provide a more energy-efficient cooling solution, potentially reducing your carbon footprint and saving money in the long run.

Friesen's Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. is a full service air conditioning replacement contractor based out of Qualicum Beach and serving the entire Oceanside area including Qualicum, Parksville, Nanoose, and Nanaimo.  We specialize in the installation and replacement of air conditioning units in both homes and commercial settings.  We have electricians and HVAC specialists on staff that can take care of all the necessary hookups and connections to ensure your system works properly.

Wow .. if there was a button higher than 5/5 this company definitely would be top of our list. Long story short, we were running on emergency heat last 6 months misdiagnosed by another company, after some research hubby picked Fujitsu as being the most technically advanced heat pump. Mike helped me by offering a contact for rebates as well as moved some appointments to provide immediate professional installation as our house was chilly, amazing workmanship. Thanks so much guys, much appreciated!! PS our dogs loved them too, pet friendly as well 🙂

We had very good service from Mike. He's busy but came at exactly the scheduled time and fixed our heat-pump. Our previous service guys were ripping us off. Mike explained what needed to be done and charged us exactly as Quoted. No surprises. He's our goto guy now.

Our furnace broke during a cold snap. Mike came out the same day, Friday afternoon, gave us an estimate, and started right away on Monday. There were some hardware issues with the new unit, and he had them replaced by the manufacturer as soon as he could, and worked hard and extra long to get everything going for us. He was very professional, knowledgeable and responsive, and seemed to really care about doing a great job and getting us out of the cold. We will continue to use his services for our property. Thanks Mike!

Mike installed a heat pump and header. Service was excellent, very efficient and cost effective compared to WESTILE. System works very well. Mike also followed up in a timely manner (same day) when my receipt was misplaced, enabling me to apply for aFederal rebate.

How Do You Know It's Time To Replace Your AC Unit?

Knowing when to replace your AC unit can save you time, money, and prevent discomfort during the heat of summer. Here are some key signs that indicate your AC unit may need replacing:

#1.  Age of the Unit: Generally, if your AC is more than 10-15 years old, it might be time for a replacement. Even if it's still running, newer models are likely to be far more efficient and have more features.

#2.  Frequent Repairs: If your AC unit needs frequent repairs, it's usually more cost-effective in the long run to replace the system rather than continuing to fix it.

#3.  High Energy Bills: If you've noticed a significant increase in your energy bills, your AC unit's efficiency may be declining. A new, energy-efficient model can lower your monthly costs.

#4.  Inadequate Cooling: If your AC struggles to maintain the set temperature, or some rooms in your home are cooler than others, it could be a sign that your unit is on its way out.

#5.  Excessive Noise or Odor: Unusual noises or smells coming from your AC can indicate serious problems. These issues often suggest that there are internal issues within the system.

#6.  Frequent Cycling: If your AC frequently cycles on and off, it may be having trouble maintaining the desired temperature. This could indicate that your system is nearing the end of its lifespan.

#7.  R-22 Refrigerant Use: If your AC unit uses R-22 refrigerant (also known as Freon), it's probably time to replace it. Production of R-22 was phased out in 2020 due to its environmental impact, and supplies are becoming more scarce and expensive.

#8.  Humidity Issues: If your AC is no longer managing humidity effectively, it might be due for a replacement. Properly functioning AC systems remove humidity from the air as part of the cooling process.

If you're experiencing any of these signs, give us a call (250) 714-5230 or use our contact form and we'll get right back to you. We can inspect your system, advise whether repair or replacement is the most cost-effective option, and provide recommendations on suitable new AC units if necessary.
