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 !

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.

Energy Savings Calculator || JJ McLellan Plumbing & Heating

Have you ever wondered just how much money you could save by being efficient…

Lennox has a wonderful calculator on their website – Energy Savings Calculator

Click on this calculator, choose Heating or Cooling, Select your Area (Canada is at the bottom – save the best for last 😉 ), then choose the efficiency of the appliance. This is what you’re looking for (this is from the Lennox link above).

Heating Efficiency

Furnaces are rated by the Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratio, which is the percent of heat produced for every dollar of fuel consumed. AFUE works a lot like the miles-per-gallon rating on your car—the higher the rating, the lower your fuel costs.

Cooling Efficiency

The measure for the efficiency of air conditioners and heat pumps is the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), which compares cooling output to electrical consumption over a range of temperatures. The higher the SEER, the less the unit will cost to operate.

The results this calculator shows you is savings in 5 years. You will see a large savings for your Heating System, the Air Conditioning Systems will not provide you with a huge savings – however it is your comfort level which is the main reason for upgrading your AC, having a more efficient system which is properly sized to your home and system will run much more efficient and if you upgrade to a more efficient system it will be quieter as well – which again is your comfort!

Nasties You’re Breathing In – Lennox | Comfort Matters Spring 2011

Lennox Comfort Matters Spring 2011

Nasties you’re breathing (and what to do about them)

1. Mold spores, which can be bad for both your health and your home furnishings. Mold thrives where there is too much moisture and natural fibers to feed the spores. To avoid the musty odors, window condensation and wood warping that can result from mold growth, see our online guide. Pairing a dehumidification system and air cleaner provides the best results for mold control.

2. Pet dander, which can stay airborne for hours. Use a brush to catch pets’ loose fur and bathe animals frequently. Air cleaners can also trap pet dander.

3. Unpleasant odors that can linger. Run an exhaust fan in the kitchen or bath to reduce excess humidity and odors, but don’t forget to turn it off afterwards.

4. Dust, and the irritating mites that live in it. Use a damp cloth to pick up dust instead of simply stirring up particles. Wash sheets at least once a week in hot water. Change your furnace and air conditioning filter once a month to control dust.

5. Ozone, ironically from something you use to clear the air. Many electronic particle air cleaners can actually produce ground-level ozone, a manmade pollutant that can aggravate asthma or bronchitis. Rest assured that Lennox Healthy Climate® air systems DO NOT produce harmful ozone.

6. Bacteria, some of which can cause serious illnesses. Wash fresh fruits and vegetables thoroughly, and clean sink drains twice a week with an antibacterial solution. Limit unwanted moisture throughout your home.

7. Pollen, triggering asthma or hay fever symptoms. Change clothes when you come home at the end of the day, and remove your shoes when you enter the house. A HEPA air filter can help clear the air effectively.

8. Mildew, a problem with high humidity. Keep your home’s humidity levels between 30% and 60% to control mildew; run your air conditioner to help reduce unwanted moisture, and install a dehumidification system.

9. Viruses, which spread under the right conditions. The same conditions that can cause mildew to spread – poor ventilation and too much moisture in the home – should also be addressed to control the viruses that can worsen sore throats, asthma and other respiratory problems.

10. Chemical vapors that lead to headaches, dizziness and respiratory problems. Be sure to air out dry-cleaned clothes before hanging them in your closet. Also avoid using scented deodorizers, and consider a PureAir™ air purification system that cleans your home’s air better than any other single system you can buy.
