CONDO HEAT PUMP SYSTEMS
HEAT PUMP SYSTEM FAQS

Lack of in-suite maintenance in condominiums and central mechanical systems in high rise condos are number the major reason for sudden heat pump failure in condos. Condo heat pump compressors are the most important component of the system. Due to the high costs of compressor repair & replacement, we advise our clients to replace their entire unit when their system fails to operate due to compressor malfunction.

In our experience with heat pumps in the Toronto & GTA area, the 5 most common heat pump problems are:

  • No heat or air conditioning. Heat pump does not turn on.
  • Heat pump shuts ON & OFF continuously.
  • Thermostat malfunction. No call for heating or cooling or the thermostat screen is OFF.
  • Sudden rattling noise. Heat pump emits constant loud noise in the condo.
  • Insufficient heating & cooling. Not proper air flow in your suite. 

If you are experiencing any of these issues, contact us today!

What makes water source heat pumps unique from fan coil units is the reversibility to switch from heat or cool at any anytime during the winter and summer seasons. Heat pump technology uses a component called the reversing valve to trigger the compressor to provide both heating and air conditioning at any given moment.

Therefore, in the intermediate seasons like April and September, condo residents do not have to wait for management to switch from heating or cooling or vice versa because heat pumps can operate in both heating and air conditioning mode.

Yes, Home Trade Standards offers water source heat pump repair and maintenance in condos. We specialize in professional in-suite building HVAC services in Toronto the GTA area. Some condominium managements have a fixed annual heat pump maintenance program with a building HVAC contractor. Due to Covid, some property managements stopped providing annual maintenance services in 2020 and 2021. Therefore, we experienced a lot of service calls due to a lack of maintenance.

At Home Trade Standards, we offer annual condo heating and air conditioning repair and maintenance services for individual condo owners. You can contact us directly to service your suite HVAC system.

Condo heat pump systems utilize R-22 or R-410 Refrigerants to provide heating and air conditioning through a refrigeration cycle. They are also known as water source heat pumps  because they utilize water to extract or discharge the heat from or to the building water loop that is circulating in a closed-loop system from the building mechanical room to every floor and suite. The closed water loop system works as a medium to cool down the compressor during summertime. In winter, the water loop is responsible to prevent the heat pump compressor from freezing during the refrigeration cycle. High rise condos with in-suite heat pump heating and air conditioning units should always maintain the temperature of the water supply lines between 60 F to 90 F to ensure proper functionality. When the water temperature falls below this level, the unit automatically shuts off until the temperature is back to the standard range again.

What makes Water Source Heat Pumps unique from other types of heat pump and air conditioning units is the reversibility to switch from heat or cool at any anytime during the cycle of operation. In these types of heat pump systems, the reversing valve triggers the compressor to discharge the refrigerant to the water heat exchanger for cooling and the refrigerant to air heat exchanger for heating.

Notes: The water requirement temperature in the building closed-loop system must be 60 F to 90 F for proper water source heat pump operation. Buildings with heat pump HVAC systems use a central boiler and chiller to supply control water temperature through buildings a closed-loop system. This allows high rise buildings to save on energy in the intermediate seasons by creating an equilibrium between a resident who uses heating and the residents who use coolings in order to maintain the temperature requirement with the building water closed-loop system.

OMEGA & WHALEN heat pump systems are the most common water source heat pump systems in high rise condominium suites in Toronto & GTA area. Home Trade Standards offers complete heating & air conditioning repair, maintenance, and installation services for WHALEN & OMEGA heat pump systems in condo building. If you have an existing Whalen or OMEGA heat pump system, simply call us today to get a free quote for a replacement!

Most heat pump manufacturers offer a standard 1-year manufacturer parts & 5-year compressor warranty on all new condo constructions, retrofits, and installations across Ontario. Depending on the manufacturer, this number may vary. At Home Trade Standards, we also offer a 1-year full labour warranty on all water source heat pump installations. Our work is insured and done by experienced technicians. To learn about our heat pump extended warranty program, contact us today to get more information!

Condo heat pump chassis repair costs can range from $180 to $1200 Plus HST on average. If your heat pump chassis is currently diagnosed with a refrigerant leak or mechanical malfunction, your repair costs can start from $1000 up to $3500 plus tax.

Condo heat pump replacement costs can vary from one building to another. Every condo is unique and every unit has a particular engineering specification. Typically the cost of a new condo heat pump replacement can range from $2800 to $4500 plus applicable taxes in Toronto & GTA area.

Due to condominium bylaws and requirements, your condo HVAC specialist must first do an assessment on the existing system prior to the installation.
