Why it’s worth the investment for comfort

Are you building a new house? Renovating? Time to upgrade your HVAC system?

Do your research and save money in the long run!

Upgrading your heating and cooling appliances during the building process will cost you more initially, however this will save you money in the long run. Consider all options, not only your building materials and décor but the true “heart” of your home – in the mechanical room. This room controls every aspect of your home from your hot water, your central vacuum, air exchanger, heating, cooling and electrical.

Also do not forget future additions… will you one day finish your basement? do you have a gas line run for a fireplace or perhaps you should think of infloor heating? Will you want to have a gas BBQ in your back yard? Will you one day want a gas fireplace in your livingroom?

Whether you have the option of natural gas or propane service at your home, we are able to offer you products in your choice of fuel sources,  which will still provide you with a variety of energy efficient appliances for your heating, cooling and air quality needs.

A woman needs to know her home’s HVAC System

I am writing this post entirely from a woman’s perspective.

And all about heating. Can you feeeel the excitement!

Being the daughter and wife of a technician, I have learned a lot over the years and even more so when I had my own children. I can remember in our first house coming home after work and it was freezing! FREEZING. Of course my hubby wasn’t home from work yet and I called on my dad, who merely said to me just turn the thermostat off and back on. Well wasn’t I surprised when that worked! I had heat!

It wasn’t until we had children that I really began to care about the indoor quality of our home. Not long after our son was born, we found out our family was expanding again and we began looking for a bigger home, within my criteria was natural gas – this is something that in our first home I, (and our budget) became very comfortable with. I love cooking with natural gas both inside and on the bbq. During the home inspection of our 2nd home, they made sure they tested the furnace – which thankfully they did as the heat exchanger failed (a great reason why during a home inspection you should also always have a furnace inspection or insist on the seller having one). What this meant was we were able to adjust our price on the home to cover the installation of a new energy efficient furnace – which in all honesty I did prefer.

One home we did look at which had a nice lot and large garage for the husband, had electric baseboard heat. Although we could change this out, many homeowners do not realize the large cost of doing this retrofit – of course it can be done and your home will be much better in the long run with an energy efficient hvac system for heating, cooling and ventilation, your home will also have improved air flow and circulation, which is a downfall of electric baseboards.

I grew very accustomed to the personal benefits of gas (natural gas in our case, propane also has the same benefits) of having an unlimited supply to our bbq, gas dryer, gas water heater, gas stove and a new energy efficient gas furnace. All very affordable as well.

As a young mother having this option of gas in our home was a true convenience for me, if we used our basement we had a gas fireplace which would provide instant heat when needed, with cooking on the bbq I did not have to worry about running out of fuel, especially when planning dinner for our family with a husband working late – this was huge!

Dad even said it perfectly to us one day, if there is a problem within the home whether its plumbing or heating if you ask the woman of the home she will always be able to describe it perfectly –  in most cases women are home more than men.

Why do women need to be educated in what an HVAC system is – simple –  this is the system that literally runs your household. When you need heat or cooling and push a button or slide the temperature, you want heat or cold air. You want and need to know that your family is comfortable and healthy.

Especially important during the buying process, when you begin to do your research. You want to ensure you have a quality product by a reputable manufacturer, bought from a knowledgeable supplier and installed by a qualified contractor who will be around if you do have issues.

Do you want to save money? – of course everyone does especially with the rising costs of hydro. Do you have children? – you will want the system to be quiet and healthy – yet still efficient.  Water conservation? That is a must now a days, be sure you take the time to do the research! When you are planning out your new home or your renovation – be a part of this discussion.

I wont ever claim I know more than my father or husband when it comes to HVAC (that would be silly 😉 ), however I know what little things matter to me, as a mother.

When we began our search for our 3rd home with property, my number one on my list was natural gas – although there were other homes we looked at and one we even had an offer in on that didn’t have gas – but could have gas installed. The next criteria was the HVAC System in the home, this would have to be inspected to ensure the efficiency. One of my other points was an HRV – which if it was already installed would be a bonus, if not it was a must install after we moved in.

One of the biggest compromises for me in this home that we did purchase was it did not have a gas stove in the kitchen, nor could we install one without a major renovation. After much deliberation we purchased a new energy efficient electric convection wall oven. This was a major compromise for me, however we have a gas cook top and purchased a large broil king gas BBQ which we use much more than our stove. We did however have to have a gas line run for the BBQ. One of the benefits that I love in this home is the home having an HRV system and the gas fireplace downstairs.

My only dilemma remaining is when our Water Furnace Geo Thermal System decides its had enough… For many homes geo-thermal is a great option – if you do not have gas service available at your home. As much as our Geo-thermal rep cringed when I told him I wasn’t sure what we would replace it with – we’ll have to consider all information on energy savings and product cost…

What have I learned about the HVAC System…

  • Bigger is not better at all! If the furnace is too big (not sized correctly to your home) it will not work properly and be very loud.
  • Energy Efficient equipment makes a huge difference in energy bills
  • Newer energy efficient equipment is so much quieter
  • Turning the thermostat off and on again can reset your heating system
  • Duct work design is very important in a home
  • I love the convenience of gas in my home
  • Keeping the temperature at a consistent level in your home is more efficient
  • It is very important to keep hot and cold air grills clean – especially with pets!
  • It is very important to not block your hot and cold air grills
  • I love the instant heat of a gas fireplace (ok not hvac but still heating)
  • It is important to get your ducts cleaned out every few years
  • Planning – very important to know how many gas appliances you plan to have installed now or in the future – the size of the gas line is important for this!
  • In-floor heating – this along with a gas fireplace is an excellent option for a basement!

Up next month… plumbing! Your home’s plumbing is just as important as your own body’s plumbing! 😉

Spring Cleaning & Servicing

With this gorgeous spring weather many of us have had our heating systems turned off… until yesterday that is! We held off as long as we could, however at bedtime last night we had to turn the furnace back on. Our fireplace has also been running the odd time in the basement for the past couple weeks.

Now is a great time to ensure that your heating system is in tip top shape for heating season next year. Of course with cleaning and servicing there is no guarantee nothing will happen, however by having your equipment properly maintained and cleaned will not only save you in energy costs but also be cleaner in your home.

Indoor Spring Cleaning Tips

  • Wipe down all your walls, lights and fans
  • Dust shelves, door ways, trim, windows, art work/photos and around computers
  • Dust or clean window coverings and window sills
  • Clean windows & wash your window and door screens
  • Clean behind your fridge & vacuum off the back
  • Clean out and organize cupboards and fridge/freezer
  • Change batteries in your smoke and CO detectors
  • Check for any leaking taps or pipes
  • Vacuum and clean bathroom fans
  • Check grout on tiles, bathtub & shower – regrout if cracking
  • Change or wash filters in your Furnace, Air Conditioner and HRV
  • Schedule cleaning & servicing on your heating and cooling appliances
  • Ensure furniture is moved away from registers – cold and hot air to ensure proper circulation
  • Remove the cover from your Air Conditioner
  • Clean area rugs (shampoo if necessary) and give furniture a good cleaning
  • Declutter! Go through paper, recycle or file. Closets – coat closets, clothes closets. Donate things that no longer fit. Scan any paper work and then shred. Go through kids toys, garbage broken ones and donate any they no longer play with.
  • Ensure your dryer vent is cleaned out and give your washer a good cleaning
  • Visually inspect your Hot Water Heater, Furnace, Air Conditioner, Water Softener and any other plumbing or heating appliance to familiarize yourself with their sounds and ensure there are no visible leaks. *we do not recommend homeowners taking these appliances apart in anyway please leave the cleaning & servicing to a professional – home owners should perform visual inspections to ensure there is no water leaking or making unusual sounds.

Heating System – Lennox Premier Dealer

This week we had a customer who needed their furnace checked and due to the cost of the parts, for them it just wasn’t worth it to repair an old heating system. After our salesman measured up and priced a system suited for their home and needs, our guys went to complete the retrofit.
Watch for our van’s around town – this one happens to be our biggest and in my opinion best bill board advertising for our services. With 24 hour 7 days of week service we are always available should your heating system fail you or plumbing system back up, flood, leak etc.
We actually had a furnace which quit for a customer on Christmas Day and were able to provide them with heaters until we got the new one installed Boxing Day morning and just one night this week we received a call at almost 10pm at night from a customer who had sewage backing up into their basement – their finished basement. This did require two guys heading over with our sewer flusher equipment, however the guys were able to clear the blockage and ease the home owners worries of more damage occuring over the night, they were able to sleep and tackle the damage in the morning.
Here is our moving billboard !

ecoEnergy Program has closed their doors…

Please read the full press release below for details of the current state of the ecoEnergy Program. The deadline is also fast approaching for having your retrofits complete – March 31st ! If you have been thinking about a new furnace and are able to take advantage of the rebates (having already applied for the ecoEnergy rebates) give us a call – we are currently offering rebates and financing from Lennox!

Government of Canada Takes Action to Improve Energy Efficiency

OTTAWA, ONTARIO, Jan 29, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) — The Honourable Joe Oliver, Minister of Natural Resources, today announced additional funding of $117 million over three years for the ecoENERGY Efficiency Initiatives. These initiatives will benefit Canadians directly by improving energy efficiency through Canada’s building codes, new housing standards, industrial practices, vehicle labels and consumer appliances.
“This investment demonstrates our continuing commitment to advance clean energy technologies and make Canada a world leader in energy efficiency,” said Minister Oliver. “Improving energy efficiency saves energy, creates jobs and increases energy security.”
This new investment is in addition to an initial $78-million investment announced by Minister Oliver last September, bringing the five-year total for the initiatives to $195 million.
Minister Oliver also announced that the ecoENERGY Retrofit – Homes program has successfully reached its goal of 250,000 registered homeowners. As planned, the program is no longer accepting new registrations.
To help ensure registered homeowners have time to get their post-retrofit evaluations and receive a grant, the Government of Canada is extending the deadline to June 30, 2012, for homeowners to complete post-retrofit evaluations and apply for a grant. All retrofit renovations must still be completed by March 31, 2012.
After launching the ecoENERGY Retrofit – Homes program in 2007, the Government of Canada renewed the program in June 2011 with an investment of $400 million through the Next Phase of Canada’s Economic Action Plan.
“The decision to provide time-limited funding demonstrates prudent management by our Government to ensure that we can return to balanced budgets during this time of fiscal constraint,” said Minister Oliver.
