Blinking Lights and Your Furnace


When your heater blinks a light at you, it’s like it’s trying to have a conversation in its own secret language. Each blink is a message, and decoding it can help you figure out what’s going on. Here’s a simple guide to understanding the blinking lights on your furnace:


Count the Blinking Lights:

The number of blinks often carries a message. Take note of how many times the light blinks in a row.


Check the Pattern of the Blinking Lights:

Is it a steady blink, or is there a specific pattern? Sometimes, the rhythm of the blinks is the key to understanding the message.


Refer to the Manual about the blinking lights and your furnace:

Your furnace’s manual is like its dictionary. It usually has a section that decodes the blinking light patterns. Look for a troubleshooting or diagnostic section in the manual. If you can’t find the manual for your furnace, look on the backside of the cover of your furnace as it may be placed there for easy reference. 


Search Online:

The internet is a treasure trove of information. If the manual is nowhere to be found, try searching online for your furnace’s make and model along with “blinking light codes.” You might find forums or guides with the information you need.


Contact us at Gibbon Heating:

If all else fails, don’t hesitate to contact Gibbon’s Heating & Air Conditioning. We’re here to help and can guide you through the meaning behind those blinking lights.

Remember, it’s like your furnace’s way of saying, “Hey, something’s up, but I’m trying to tell you what it is!” So, the next time your furnace blinks at you, consider it a little chat in its unique language, and you’ll be on your way to a warmer, cozier home.

TIPS TO MINIMIZE STRAIN ON YOUR HVAC SYSTEM THIS SUMMER


Saskatchewan summer is around the corner, and having a well-functioning HVAC system to keep your home cool is essential. Here are some tips to minimize strain and help keep your system running efficiently all summer long.


Leave The AC On Even When You Are Not Home

It is often thought that turning off your AC when you leave your home can save you money. However, this is not the case. Turning off your AC will only cause the unit to have to work harder to achieve the set temperature once it is turned on again. In addition, turning off your AC will increase humidity, creating condensation issues. 

Programmable thermostats regulate the temperature of your home while you are away. All you have to do is set them so that the temperature is higher during the hours you will be away, and lower for the hours you will be home. Programmable thermostats help minimize strain on your HVAC system and save you money.

Ensure Windows And Doors Remain Shut

When windows and doors are left open, hot air is able to enter the home. Allowing this hot air in will create more work for your HVAC unit that is already working overtime. Not to mention, open windows and doors allow for pollutants and allergens to enter the home easily which does not foster a healthy environment.

Change Filters Regularly To Ensure Cleanliness

When air filters are dirty, less air is able to flow through. As a result, your system must work harder to cool the home. When airflow is restricted by a dirty filter, less air passes through the evaporator coil. This puts your system at risk for the coil to freeze as there is less heat for the coil to absorb. 

Do Not Shut Too Many Registers

Since the duct system in your home is designed to circulate air at a certain pressure, it is very important the registers remain open. Shutting registers means the system has to work harder, it does not reduce the amount of air the system is creating. Shutting registers will overwork your HVAC system, which will not prolong its longevity.

Ensure Annual Maintenance Is Complete

Remember that you are not always the expert when it comes to your HVAC system, and you don’t need to be! Calling a professional for your regular maintenance will ensure all system components are clean, and that the system is in good working order for the summer months. 

These are a few tips to minimize strain on your HVAC system to help keep your home cool. Following these tips will ensure you and your family stay comfortable this summer.

Trusted Saskatoon Furnace Experts at JOB Heating and Air Conditioning Explain Why Your Furnace is Blowing Cold Air

Is Your Furnace Blowing Cold Air?

This may be a sign that your furnace requires attention. Read on to discover reasons why your furnace is blowing cold air.

Your Furnace Has Not Warmed Up


Whenever it is the beginning of a heating cycle, you will get a blast of cold air when you turn on your furnace. Much like when you first turn on a faucet, cold water is going to flow out at first rather than hot. As your furnace warms up, it must first push out the cold air before warm air will blow out of your vents. If your furnace blows cold air briefly, this is likely the explanation. However, if warm air does not follow the cold air after a few minutes, it is time to call in an expert. 

The Thermostat Setting Is Incorrect  

Ensure the thermostat is set to “AUTO” instead of “ON”. When the thermostat is set to “ON”, the fan will continuously run even when the furnace is not in a heating cycle. This means that the fan will blow cold air throughout your home, instead of warm. The thermostat should always be on “AUTO” to ensure that the fan will only blow during a heating cycle. 

The Flame Sensor Is Dirty

The flame sensor detects whether or not your furnace’s gas burners are lit. A dirty flame sensor will keep the gas burner from staying lit, and cause the burners to shut off. This results in cold air blowing from the vents, as the furnace does not have a heat source. Unless you are familiar with furnaces, a dirty flame sensor should always be cleaned by a professional to restore heat. 

Your Furnace's Pilot Light Is Out

Especially if your furnace is older, cold air is a sign that the pilot light is out. If you are comfortable doing so, follow your furnace’s instructions on how to relight it. If the flame goes out again after a few minutes, contact a professional as technical work is likely necessary. 

Your Furnace's Air Filter Is Clogged

When the air filter is clogged, airflow is restricted. Restricted airflow can cause your furnace to overheat. When your furnace overheats, this shuts down the burner resulting in cold air. Always replace a dirty air filter to ensure your furnace is functioning properly. 

These are a few possible reasons why your furnace is blowing cold air. Be sure to schedule your routine furnace maintenance to ensure your furnace is safe to operate this winter. If you need any assistance with your furnace or home heating equipment, do not hesitate to contact our team at JOB Heating & Air Conditioning.

Trusted Team Brags About Breathe Better Indoor Air Quality Specialists, Trusted Saskatoon Furnace, Duct and Vent Cleaning Experts

The Trusted Saskatoon team is thrilled to brag about our newest Trusted Saskatoon partner. Breathe Better Indoor Air Quality Specialists is a Trusted Saskatoon Furnace, Duct, and Vent Cleaner!


David Dram has been involved in the furnace and duct cleaning industry since 2014, and he is passionate about what he does, especially the benefits he brings to his customers' health and wellness. After gaining knowledge and expertise with a few other companies and learning both the good and bad of the industry, he recognized it was time to go out on his own. He wanted to do things differently, with his vision, purpose, and a goal to provide unparalleled service and professionalism. 


We all know there’s always "a guy or gal that can do it cheaper," but we all know when you compromise on price, you generally compromise on quality. So David wanted to change that perception and offer honest and friendly service, great quality work, all at a fair price for Saskatoon consumers.



Breathe Better Indoor Air Quality is truly a family-owned and operated business. In addition to running a growing and successful business, David has four children! 


David is also the Commanding Officer of the #300 Fisher Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron in Biggar. He has been involved as a CAF officer for 10 years, taking command last October. Although David was born in Flin Flon, Saskatoon has been his home since childhood, and he strives every day to make a difference in indoor air quality and personal health for residents and businesses of Saskatoon and the surrounding area.


We are so fortunate to have David raising a family and growing their business in Saskatoon, and we are happy about their decision to join our Trusted Saskatoon community. Now, our team will do what WE are most passionate about… Promoting and spreading the word about this locally owned family business and sharing the news about the honesty, integrity, and long-term approach to business they are committed to! You can definitely trust them for your residential or commercial projects, from furnace, duct, and vent cleaning, they clean old homes, businesses and new builds, they are the professionals to call in an emergency or just because it’s time to clean your home thoroughly. 



When we were speaking to some of Breathe Better’s customers, as part of our Unique Trusted verification process, we continually heard the same positive comments about David, and the feedback was nothing short of excellent. Read some of the real personal testimonials from recent customers below.  

“We are extremely satisfied with the services provided by David with Breathe Better Indoor Air Quality. David was flexible, reasonably priced, organized, kind, and a pleasure to be around. Very satisfied with the work done. I would highly recommend his business.” - C.S., Saskatoon


I found David through Facebook as I always love to support the smaller, local guy. I’ve had ducts cleaned before and you never meet the owner and are always up-charged. David was super transparent with price and service and very professional. I would definitely have Breathe Better Indoor Air Quality Specialists back again and will suggest him to family and friends looking for someone to clean their furnace, ducts and vents!” - Mitch Kurylyk, Saskatoon

JOB Heating & Air Conditioning Trusted Saskatoon Furnace, A/C and Plumbing Pros For 10 Years

This series of articles highlights the businesses that have been with TrustedSaskatoon.com  since we launched in 2011. We want to thank them for trusting our team and recognize each of them individually for providing 10 years of OUTSTANDING service to the public of Saskatoon and surrounding areas! In this article, we celebrate and recognize Jeff and the team at JOB Heating & Air Conditioning—Trusted Saskatoon Furnace, A/C, and Saskatoon Plumbing Pros!

We are pleased to celebrate JOB Heating & Air Conditioning, a Trusted Saskatoon partner for over 10 years!

The JOB Heating & Air Conditioning team is well known for their Ssakatoon air conditioning, furnace, and plumbing work for residential and commercial customers. Jeff Bolton worked up from employee to partner, and he is now the trusted face of the company, which currently has six employees. Jeff has been in the HVAC and Plumbing industry since 1989. With his many years of plumbing and heating expertise, he has a clear vision and commitment to always putting the customer and his community first. Spending many years as a volunteer serving the community's greatest needs has given Jeff the right balance of drive and determination to do the right thing. He has a big heart and is dedicated to always putting the customer's needs first. He prides himself on JOB’s record of integrity, honesty, and service, and he takes being trusted very seriously.

As Jeff would say…”I do what I say and say what I do!”

“One of Jeff’s biggest challenges over the years has been competing with kijiji’s plumbers and other HVAC companies that don’t abide by reasonable industry standards or even properly insure or register their businesses. Companies that are often run by folks that over promise and under deliver, they often undercut on price to get the job and end up not delivering on the service. Many try to make it up by high pressure sales on work or products the customer may not need. This is the total opposite of how Jeff and his team operates and as someone who was ripped off by an unscrupulous company myself I am wary. I am happy to say that I have used JOB personally several times over the last 10 years and the experience is always stellar."
- Sara Wheelwright, Trusted Founder

The JOB Heating & Air team also prides itself on being recognized as a leader in water heating system technology for new in-floor and boiler installations in Saskatoon. Jeff is passionate about what he does, and his enthusiasm is infectious. What you see truly is what you get with Jeff. He is authentic and cares deeply about always leaving a good impression with clients. It is obvious that he values and supports his team. That’s why he wanted to create a business where people love to work! 

When asked what drives Jeff, he explains his mantra around the shop.

 “We do every job as if it was our own mother’s house. We treat each other (my coworkers) with respect and dignity and that just becomes the way that we treat everyone, especially our customers.” 

A great example of why JOB Heating & Air Conditioning has been a 10-year Trusted Saskatoon Partner.

Remember JOB... because they always strive to live up to their tagline... "Your Comfort is Our Concern!"
