Technology options for homes and offices have evolved considerably over the years. Homeowners now have more choices and information to choose from than ever before. At Airtika Heating & Cooling in Kelowna, we pride ourselves on our considerable knowledge of HVAC products and technology from air-to-air heat pumps, ductless mini split heat pumps, boilers, residential PTAC units, and more.
The majority of homes in the Okanagan Valley rely on a forced air ducted system with a central furnace to provide the heat throughout their homes.
We service, maintain and install furnaces that use both natural gas and propane.
Electronic Air Handlers
Air handlers or AHU's are part of a ducted ventilation system that dispurses heated or cooled air throughout a building.
AHU's can be installed to maintain even airflow by using small terminal units for small rooms or full size AHUs for entire homes.
These units use electricity and ductwork to distribute heat throughout your home. A heat pump absorbs ambient heat from outside air and moves it inside. During the summer months, the system reverses and removes the heat from indoors, providing air conditioning.
Ductless Mini & Multi Splits
Units can be mounted high on a wall, on the floor or as a ceiling cassette and do not require ductwork, which increases energy efficiency. These systems come in a variety of sizes and can be used as single zone or multi-zone systems.
PTAC Thru-the-wall Units
A PTAC (Packaged Terminal Air Conditioner) is a self-contained air conditioning and heating system. Often found in condos, apartments, add-on rooms & sunrooms. Many are designed to go through a wall, having vents both inside and outside.
Water Source Heat Pumps
Water source heat pump systems are one of the most efficient set ups for heating and cooling multi unit buildings. Most commonly a “Boiler/Tower” application uses a simple two pipe water circut that adds, removes or transfers heat to other units throughout the building.
Hot Water Tanks
We service and install both traditional hot water tanks and tankless water heaters for clients that are looking for a hot water on demand type of system.
If your hot water tank is 10+ years old we recommend upgrading to a high efficiency unit.
Gas Condensing Boilers
Boiler or Hydronic systems distribute heat through water rather than air. Heated water is passed through radiators or other devices such as in floor heating which gives off heat as it passes through your home, the cooler water then returns to the boiler to be reheated creating a loop.
Experience the luxury of total comfort in your own backyard. Pool heaters let you choose your preferred water temperature all year round.
Never let the weather control your swimming pool and spa enjoyment again.
