What is a Condo Fan Coil Unit?

Condo-Fan-Coil-Repair-Manitenance-Toronto-Replacement-Unit-HVAC-Heating-Air Conditioning-Systems

Fan Coil Units are the most commonly used heating & air conditioning systems in condominiums. These HVAC systems are typically the owner’s responsibility when it comes to emergency repair or replacement. 

How Does a Fan Coil Unit Work In Your Condo?

In the wintertime, The building’s central heating system supplies hot water from a central boiler in the mechanical room. Fan Coil uses the incoming hot water as a heating source to increase the temperature inside your condo. How? The blower fan pushes the airflow across the coil in order to stream warm air via the ventilation system in your suite. In the summertime, the building supplies chilled water via the central chiller system. The incoming chilled water travels through the coil inside the fan coil system while the fan coil blower draws the air across the coil in order to reduce the ambient temperature as it leaves the ventilation system. 

In the transitioning times between seasons, it is quite possible that you may have no heat or cool air if your building has not fully switched to heating or cooling. Click Here To Learn More About Fan Coil Systems.

Another common issue with Fan Coil systems is Fan Coil freezing. Read more about a recent story about Fan Coil Freezing & Flood Hazard In Toronto Condominiums.

Condo Fan Coil Maintenance

Condo Fan Coil Maintenance is highly recommended to completed 2 times per year. Maintenance work is typically scheduled in transitioning seasons such as April & May or September and October. Some Condominium managements have a set regular Fan Coil Unit Maintenance Program every year before the winter and summer season. Normally, your condo property management company will send you a notice to ensure all the residents are notified prior to an entry into your suite. You should always pay attention to all the posted notices in your building to avoid missing scheduled fan coil maintenance services done by your building contractor.

If your building does not offer a regular maintenance program, you can always count on us. At Home Trade Standards, we offer Fan Coil Maintenance Programs for condominium owners in Toronto & GTA.

How Does a Heat Pump Work In Condos?

Condo Heat Pump Systems are independent systems installed in each apartment. These system use utilize R-22 or R-410 refrigerant to generate heat or cool within your space through refrigeration cycle. Unlike the air source heat pump, no portion of a water source heat pump need to be located outdoors. Condo Heat Pumps 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 Condominiums 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. Condo Heat Pump Systems come in two types of orientation: 1. Vertical Stack Heat Pump 2. Horizontal Ceiling Mount Heat Pump.

Inverter PTAC reduces the compressor RPM cycle in order to increase the heating and cooling efficiency rating required for power consumption.

PTAC Warranty:

At Home Trade Standards, we provide at least 1 year part labour warranty on all PTAC installations. In addition, Most PTAC Units come with a 6-year compressor warranty and 1 year limited part.

5 PTAC Unit Maintenance & Troubleshooting Tips

If you are experiencing problems with your PTAC units, please consider checking the following to ensure the longevity of your unit:

  1. Check your circuit breaker to ensure the power is still ON
  2. Plug out and Plug the unit back in again
  3. Change the filters regularly.
  4. Ensure the return air grille is not blocked
  5. Make sure the coil is clean otherwise the unit will consume more energy and debris block the airflow.
