Instant cozy warmth for your backyard!

I personally love the cozy warmth that a fireplace provides to a home and even a back yard! Our customers had that exact thought in their mind when they moved into their home and began planning their backyard. When their patio was installed they had us come over and install a conduit with a gas line in it which would sit below the patio ready to be connected to a future back yard gas fireplace!

Here is our work in progress for the new fireplace in the backyard – I am excited to see the finished product once the guys get the fireplace in the frame and then the customer has the unit bricked around.

The first photo shows the conduit for the gas line going under the patio. The second photo shows the unit and the metal frame that the unit is mounted in. The third photo shows the unit and the gas line coming out of the conduit below the patio.

Very innovative and an excellent way to enjoy more outdoor living!

An awesome addition and investment for a back yard… instant, cozy warmth without the work of wood!

Spring Check Up – HVAC System

With the heat of the summer on the way, now is the time to be thinking about the heat your home HVAC system provided you with all winter! Just like maintaining a car, it is very important to maintain your home HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning system) just the same in the Spring and Fall to ensure optimal performance and energy savings.

In between your seasonal cleaning and servicing you should ensure that you keep your hot and cold air registers clear, and if you have pets vacuum them off regularly to clear away any hair or dirt caught in them. Also ensure your outside vents are clear from any trees, plants and dirt. Just like the registers inside, the outside vents must be clear for air flow and safety.

One tip that is easy for most home owners to do is to ensure you change or clean your filter regularly. Especially now that spring has finally sprung and having our doors and windows open, the dust and dirt that is blowing around outside can get into your home and then into your heating ducts. If we have another cold front and the heating system needs to be turned on, all that dust and dirt in the ducts or sitting on the registers could get sucked into the heating system. If your filter is clean, the filter will do its job and catch these particles, however if the filter is dirty, this will clog the filter even more forcing your system to work harder to get the air flow through. This can cause the system to over work and could cause it to over heat, which could result in the system breaking down and parts requiring to be replaced.

With some TLC and Preventative Maintenance you can ensure your home or business HVAC System is always operating efficiently !


Cozy up to warmth at any time of the year!

This beautiful natural gas direct vent gas fireplace is one of the newest models by Regency.

With a gas fireplace you can enjoy a very cozy (instant) warmth at any time of the year and with no prep work needed! With just the flick of the switch the beautiful flame will light and begin warming your home.

Gas fireplaces are not only a gorgeous decorative feature for any home, they can also provide a home with an excellent source of heating especially in basements!  If your home has electric baseboard heat this is an excellent alternative to save on your electricity, by having a gas fireplace installed in your livingroom to assist in the heating (more economically)!.

For more information on this model check out the Regency Website for the Regency Liberty Gas Fireplace L965E .

Features of the Regency Liberty Gas Fireplace L965E (from the Regency Website)
“As a focal point in a designed space, the new Regency Liberty L965E keeps the focus on the fire with one of the largest viewing areas available in the Regency line. The L965E permits finish materials to be installed to the edges for a pure, unadorned appearance. Excellent for larger living spaces, this fireplace features authentic hand-painted logs molded from real logs presented on a glowing bed of embers. An adjustable burner system allows the flame to be controlled for mood and comfort from a roaring fire to a gentle glow all from the convenience of a hand-held remote control.

Backed by the industry’s most comprehensive Limited Lifetime Warranty.”

We should have information on these new models soon so drop by the office or come in and see the current model literature!



BBQ Season is Here!~ Cooking with Gas!

Its the time of year we have all been waiting for! Spring has officially been here since March 20th, however it certainly hasn’t felt like BBQ weather since then!

Lets hope its safe to say that the snow is now gone until November – December would be even better 😉

Are you still lugging around your propane tanks? Did you know that Union Gas is now offering a promotion to all new customers to switch over to gas, if you are considering this for your Furnace, Hot Water Heater, Dryer, Fireplace or Stove why not have our technician install a gas connection for a bbq as well! Before we got our gas bbq I never realized how convenient it would be – especially for a mom who is coming home from work and if my husband is working late, I have to get dinner started. Using a gas bbq couldn’t be simpler and I never have to worry about running out of gas!

Using a gas BBQ is much like a propane BBQ, except instead of turning the handle on the propane tank to open the valve, you are turning a lever to open the gas line to the BBQ, then you light it just the same. Hopefully your BBQ still has an ignitor on it, they do work wonderful unless a puppy chews it off! Otherwise just use a BBQ lighter in the side underneath and turn the knob, once the fumes meet the lighter it lights. Very simple and with gas very quick heat.

Not only is the BBQ simple to light, it heats up fast. I typically start the BBQ, then come back inside prep dinner for the BBQ and by this time the grill is up to temperature and ready for the food. I will cook as much as I can on the BBQ – hey it means less dishes and we arent over heating the house by cooking inside – this is very important during the hotter days! AND if you have a cottage – having a gas BBQ is a no-brainer! You can arrive at the cottage, turn the lever and you are ready to cook! Especially at a cottage which is shared by more than one family, no one needs to worry about who filled the propane tank last!

Do your kids love pizza? Grab a couple pizza grill pans, let them help you make them, while you are making them the BBQ is heating up, remember not to heat it too hot (gas heats up fast!) and within minutes you can have a pizza hot off  the grill!

Personally as a mom, having a gas BBQ has made my life SO much easier! The biggest benefit to me is I do not have to worry about how much propane is in the tank, being connected to our gas line we always have fuel for the BBQ. Another mom bonus, less dishes! Cooking on the bbq not only gives your food amazing flavour but it also cuts down on dishes! Another mom bonus is cooking with gas is very affordable, much more affordable than propane is ! In fact when we moved last year we moved to a home with a wall oven, an electric wall oven. Keeping this in mind we decided to purchase a larger BBQ, the BBQ we bought is a Broil King and it has 2 seperate cooking spaces – we can cook a lot of food all at the same time and at different temperatures!
