HEATING & COOLING
Heating and cooling technology for homes has come a long way in the past few decades. Consumers are now faced with more choices and information than ever. At Foster Heating & Cooling, we pride ourselves with our considerable knowledge of HVAC products and technology from heat pumps, furnaces, ductless splits and more.
Foster Heating & Cooling has been installing heat pumps and air conditioners in residences in Victoria and across Vancouver Island since 1928. We installed the first heat pump in 1977 which has now become the standard in heating homes. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff treat every installation, service call and maintenance as an opportunity to improve your comfort and cut your energy costs.
At Foster Heating & Cooling, we offer a wide variety of Trane, Mitsubishi and Carrier comfort solutions that can accommodate the unique needs of any home or business on Vancouver Island – including ducted and ductless heat pumps, electric and gas furnaces. We also offer some of the most sophisticated thermostats and home automation systems available.
Whether you are looking to upgrade your current system or are building a new home, we are always mindful of budget and needs. We are happy to help you determine the best solution for your home with a free, in-home consultation. All of our technicians are government-certified, conscientious and friendly. Fosters is proud to be a certified Trane, Diamond Mitsubishi and Carrier dealer but our highly-trained technicians can service any make or model of equipment.
Depending on the season, heat pump systems can heat and cool your home improving the comfort and energy efficiency of your home.
Choose from ducted or ductless split heat pumps systems to transfer heat energy throughout your home, filter out air impurities and reduce the condensation in your home.
Ductless split heat pumps are a great option for retrofitting homes with baseboard heating, take up very little space and offer great energy savings.
Make the air in your home the cleanest it can be! The Trane CleanEffects™ air filtration system quietly cleans the air in your home removing 99.98% of airborne allergens, making it more effective than even the best HEPA room filters.
Reduce the potential asthma and allergy triggers in your home like dust, mildew, pet dander, smoke and even bacteria. This system has no replacement filters to buy and an easy vacuum or rinse maintenance schedule just a few times a year.
Choose from a wide range of Trane gas furnaces for the perfect combination of fuel efficiency, temperature control and durable designs perfect for Vancouver Island and Gulf Island climates.
Ask about the many furnace features available including horizontal and vertical installation, dehumidifying options and variable speeds for quiet operation.
An automated thermostat control system puts your home’s climate control in your hand even when you’re not at home! You can optimize your energy use for year round heating and cooling.
Choose from systems that offer convenient remote access and automated maintenance reminders. You can heat and cool the different areas of your home as you need it, making a more comfortable living space.
Your home needs fresh air to maintain indoor air quality. An HRV system lets you bring in the fresh air without losing the efficiency of your home heating.
Using a balanced air-flow exchange system, the heat and energy of exhaust air can be used to warm fresh air. The special recovery core ensures the air streams are not mixed, transferring a warm comfortable airstream throughout your home while maintaining maximum efficiency.
Choose from conventional hot water tank systems or tankless water heaters that provide heated water on demand.
Tankless water heating systems provide cost savings by only heating the amount of water you actually use and because the water for your home is heated on demand, your family can be showering, washing dishes or doing laundry—at the same time without worrying about running out. You also don’t have to pay to heat water that you aren’t using.
An electric Marathon hot water tank is as efficient as a tankless and comes with a lifetime warranty. You’ll never have to buy another hot water tank.
