The Trusted Saskatoon Directory team are excited to tell you about our latest Trusted Saskatoon partner in the Saskatoon ELECTRICIAN category!
Arlen Hall and Evan Demers formed Saskatoon Electrical company Age Of Electric last year after looking at other companies in the Saskatoon electrical services industry & thinking they could do things better.
Their philosophy means they haven't changed what was working in the industry, but they wanted to raise the bar and they bring a real fresh perspective to the electricians industry. Their fresh logo and branding definitely appeals to us here at Trusted, but primarily they are a CUSTOMER FIRST company...and as they say in their own unique way...
" Unless customers ask us to violate the Canadian electrical codes or our personal safety (they have a healthy respect for electricity and know how much it hurts when you get zapped!), the customer is always right!"
Age Of Electric truly embody what it means to be Trusted and they ses themselves as being there to guide their customers though any electrical project that requires experience & professionalism. The Age Of Electric ( AOE) customers that we spoke to as part of the unique Trusted Saskatoon application and verification process told us how often the guys at AOE went the extra mile...but don't take it from us, let their clients speak for themselves!
" Age Of Electric has been our guys to call with any issues and owning 2 businesses there is always something that needs immediate attention. For instance, the building our restaurant is in his quite old, one time we were having a dinner service at 7:00, only at 5:00 ,the lights would not work! Arlen came through for us by making the extra time in his busy day to fix our problem. Another time, he actually gave up his kids soccer game to help us out in another last minute situation. I would absolutely recommend him to family and friends." Owner Duck Duck Goose, Saskatoon
Brian Pasichnyk said " I needed some pot lights installed in our house. These guys came to the house only a couple of days after I called. They were fast and did a great job! "
AOE tag line says they provide " Quality Electrical Contracting & Shockingly Great Service for a FAIR PRICE" It’s what they believe in & stand behind on every project for every customer. They are a relatively new business and they certainly don't take anyone for granted, they know customers satisfaction is the foundation of their business and as such they are committed to treat each one with as much care as possible!

"A History of Professionalism, A Foundation of Trust"
Why you should contact a qualified and licensed Saskatoon HVAC company:
The following article was supplied by Brent Badrock - owner of Gibbon Heating and Air
Sometimes we get called out for quotes and come across some horrible installs. The pictures below are from a customer who chose to go with a competitor because they had a cheaper price. Unfortunately the contractor she used butchered her house and did not do any aspect of the job according to Provincial Code.
The contractor destroyed her wall, used an installation manual to support the venting, used flexible appliance hose for the gas lines, did not re-size the chimney, indirectly vented 2 furnaces and a hot water heater in a closet without adequate combustion air, sold her a couple 2 stage furnaces without upgrading the thermostats to take advantage of the energy savings, ran shark bite fittings and flexible hose to the new hot water heater, failed to provide clearance from the furnaces to the wall for servicing, placed the hot water heater in a place with no access, and even used an orange extension cord to supply power to one of the furnaces. It was by far one of the worst installs we have ever seen. And it was an illegal install. After speaking with the Gas Inspector, we learned that a permit had never been pulled by the contractor.
Gibbon To The Rescue
Fortunately Gibbon was able to help this customer by providing some free work. We also helped her identify the deficiencies and led her to the proper channels to have the problems fixed and resolved.
Please remember to contact a qualified and licensed HVAC company for any and all of your work.
We would hate to see this happen to you. You can find Gibbon Heating and Air online www.gibbonheating.com.

Here they share a tip on Bullfrog's Environmentally Responsible Hot Tubs:
Bullfrog Spas are Earth-friendly hot tubs in every way possible. Each spa is built using systems, materials, and technologies that are energy efficient and safe for the environment.
Bullfrog Spas are built 100% wood-free. The EnduraFrame™ spa structure and spa base are made from ABS molded composite material instead of non-renewable wood or metal. The spa is supported by injection-molded ABS EnduraBeams, and the cabinet is finished with beautiful maintenance-free synthetic EternaWood™. This spa structure is strong, durable, and long-lasting. In addition, the JetPak Therapy System makes Bullfrog Spas fully upgradable. This means that many years from now your spa will still be in use and not taking space in a landfill.
Each Bullfrog Spas is made from 25% recycled ABS plastic materials. Any excess ABS produced during manufacturing is recycled and reused.
No hazardous pollutants are released into our environment during hot tub production. The spa shell backing material is not fiberglass and is VOC-free.
California Energy Commission Efficiency Leader
Bullfrog Spas simply don't waste energy. Data compiled by the California Energy Commision shows Bullfrog Spas are the most energy efficient hot tubs in their class and are at least in the top 5 in every category in which we produce a spa model. In many categories Bullfrog Spa models are only behind other slightly more efficient Bullfrog models.
A Conventional Hot Tub on the left lets heat escape. The Bullfrog Spa on the right keeps heat inside the spa.
Heat is locked inside each Bullfrog Spa with full-foam insulation and heat is recycled in the spa because the JetPak is actually submerged in the hot water. Every single hot tub made by Bullfrog Spas meets and exceeds the energy appliance standards of the California Energy Commission (CEC) without any modifications to our standard production spas for testing.
Put simply, your Bullfrog Spa is the greenest hot tub on the planet. Rest assured that you and your spa are environmentally responsible.

Let's face it, most of us do not think about the tires on our vehicles until we run into a problem....and that problem may be a major inconvenience at best; an accident at worst. Having your vehicle serviced by people that you trust is an absolute must.
Shocks and Struts - PART 2
Are your shocks and struts in control of your ride?
Vehicle ride, handling and braking are directly linked to the integrity of your suspension components. Like many of the systems on your vehicle, struts and shocks wear very slowly; many people only realize how worn they have become after they have had them replaced. After replacement the vehicle feels like new.
As the internal components of shocks and struts wear, additional internal heat is created resulting in deteriorating ride quality, braking and handling. With this wear, the oil inside the struts and shocks aerates becoming more like foam than the liquid oil it is meant to be. The farther you drive the worse this gets. The air acts like a squishy ball, allowing excessive movement of the vehicle. When we step on the brakes or make sudden steering moves the vehicle starts to rock or roll, this lifts up one end and drops the other end. Any time this happens the tires, brakes and suspension are overloaded on the low side and you don’t have enough traction on the high side. This is the reason it takes longer to stop and you have less control with worn struts and shocks.
Unfortunately we cannot change the oil in the struts and shocks when it gets old like we do engine oil. You may have seen advertising from manufacturers advising you to replace struts and shocks after 80,000 kilometers; this is the reason; the oil is worn out resulting in the struts and shocks not working as they were intended to.
There are other considerations with worn struts and shocks; all of the extra vehicle movement creates wear in suspension and steering components, requiring replacement sooner than needed. The braking system will be overloaded in the front from having too much weight transferred from the back of the vehicle to the front when slowing down. This overloads the front brakes and causes the rear brakes to be less effective creating longer stopping distances. Additionally your tires will wear out far sooner than a vehicle with good shocks and struts.
Regular maintenance inspections, performed by experienced technicians along with the needed services will help you save time and money keeping your vehicle safe and reliable for many years to come.
