Frequently Asked Questions About Heating and AC in Nova Scotia

At D Gillis Ventilation & Air Conditioning Ltd, we understand deciding on your heating and AC in Nova Scotia can be a difficult and time-consuming task. Here are some frequently asked questions to help you get started.

Q: What size units do I need?
A: The size of the unit depends on the size of the area you are trying to heat or cool, as well as the layout of your home.

Q: Where will my heat pump indoor heads be located?
A: We will place the heads in an area that will be the most efficient.

Q: Where should the outdoor unit be located?
A: We try to put the units on the south side of the building if possible, because the air is warmer.

Q: Where will the outdoor unit be mounted?
A: The unit can be mounted on snow stands or directly to the building on wall brackets. It all depends on your preference!

Q: Does heavy snowfall affect the use of my heat pump?
A: Outdoor units should be cleared of all snow and debris. There should be a gutter system above the outdoor unit so water is not interfering with the function of the unit.

Q: How noisy is the fan on the ducted air handler?
A: There are 5 fan speeds (low to high). You can hear the fan through the ducts.

Q: How long does it take to install a heat pump?
A: It depends on the size of the house and if it’s ducted or ductless. A ductless system can be done in a day.
