Air Conditioning Tips From JOB

Here are some air conditioning tips to get the most out of your cooling unit from JOB Heating & Air Conditioning Saskatoon: 

  • Set your thermostat at as high a temperature as comfortably possible in the summer and ensure humidity control if needed. The smaller the difference between the indoor and outdoor temperatures, the lower your overall cooling bill will be.
  • Avoid setting your thermostat at a colder setting than normal when you turn on your air conditioner. It will not cool your home any faster and could result in excessive cooling and, therefore, unnecessary expense.
  • Consider using an interior fan along with your window air conditioner to spread the cooled air through your home without greatly increasing your power use.
  • If your air conditioner is old, consider buying an energy-efficient model from JOB. Look for the ENERGY STAR® and EnergyGuide labels — qualified room air conditioners are 10% more efficient, and qualified central units are about 15% more efficient than standard models.

Trusted Saskatoon Furnace Experts at JOB Heating & Air Share 5 Reasons to Choose a Boiler

JOB Heating & Air Conditioning Saskatoon are eager to provide the best possible customer experience. Their aim is to be a professional resource for our clients before, during, and after the sale! Their team takes pride in service knowledge of modern equipment and training. They are recognized by peers and offer sales, service, training & installations for residential, and commercial Heating, Cooling and Plumbing systems in Saskatoon and area. In their latest article, they discuss 5 benefits of a boiler in your home as your chosen heating system. 

5 Reasons to Choose a Boiler as Your Home Heating System

Why Choose a Boiler?

Boiler systems can use both radiation and convection heat in order to warm a building. Boilers are more consistent in offering warmth and comfort, coupled with high energy efficiency, and require low maintenance in larger applications. See the top 5 reasons to choose a boiler as your home heating system from JOB Heating & Air Conditioning.

Reason #1: Less Fuel = Less Energy

Boilers usually use less fuel to heat your home, which means potentially lower energy costs compared to a furnace.

Reason #2: More Consistent Heat

This could be a big consideration when pondering whether to get a furnace or boiler. Boilers provide consistent heat to each room in your house. Furnaces tend to not circulate the air as well, leaving rooms that are too warm or too cool due to it’s forced air.

Boiler Reason #3: Less Operational Noise

Boilers are generally quieter than furnaces because you don’t hear the sound of hot air blowing. Furnaces force air in every room, making it louder than a boiler.

Reason #4: Less Maintenance

Boilers are low maintenance since they do not have filters that require cleaning, while furnaces do.

Reason #5: Better Air Quality

Homes with boilers have better air quality.  Since boiler systems don’t blow air, they don’t spread dust and allergens throughout your home the way forced-air systems do.  They also do not dry out the air leaving you with a much more comfortable environment. 

Boilers can be used to great effect in homes, as well as in larger spaces such as schools, hotels, apartment buildings, condominiums, offices, and industrial settings (warehouses, manufacturing plants, mines, etc.).

In their latest article, they discuss what in-floor heating is and a few benefits it offers you and your home.

In-Floor Heating: Add Warmth to Your Home

Is in-floor heating the right decision for your home? There’s no denying underfloor heating is the coziest way to warm your toes in our long Saskatchewan winters! See below on why the investment of in-floor heating may be the best one for you and your home.

What is Underfloor Heating?

In-floor heating, also called radiant floor heating or underfloor heating, is a luxurious home feature and a popular trend in new housing, as well as in renovations that focus on clean, comfortable, design-led living. It is a cost-effective way to warm your house.

What Type of Floor Can Heating Be Installed?

You are free to choose the floor type of your new home or renovation for underfloor heating as it works well with laminate, wood, tile, stone, or carpet.

In-Floor Heating is a Cost-Efficient, Long Term Investment

When making the decision to install heated flooring, the cost is the first factor. Installing in-floor heating, whether you choose water-based or electric, can require you to renovate your entire flooring as opposed to installing a furnace.

After the heating system has been fully implemented in a home, heating bills typically cost less as heated flooring tends to conserve more energy than traditional furnaces and heating systems, meaning it is run more efficiently and therefore costs less to run.

Retain Warmth Longer Than Traditional Heating Methods

Although in-floor heating may take a longer time to achieve the desired temperature that you want, once that temperature has been reached the heated floors will retain that warmth for a longer time than other heating methods. This warmth can then last into peak hours saving you money and helping the environment on reduced power.

In their latest article, Trusted Saskatoon Heating Experts at JOB share tips on HVAC unit maintenance to prepare for the upcoming fall temperatures.

Don't Fall Behind With HVAC Unit Maintenance 

Temperatures are getting lower which means fall is slowly starting to settle into Saskatchewan. Before it gets too cold from the harsh winter months, you may want to do some maintenance on your HVAC unit to ensure it is in tip top shape. The last thing you want is for your furnace to give out on you when it’s -40°C outside.

HVAC Unit Maintenance: Keep it Clean

It is important to clean out all the built up dust and debris that has gathered in your HVAC unit over the summer months. When dust is built up, it decreases the efficiency of your HVAC unit, therefore increasing your utility costs. By giving the vent a good clean in the fall, the HVAC unit will be running as efficiently as it can.

Leaves can be hazardous for your HVAC unit as they may get stuck in your outdoor unit and start a potential fire. Other particles can also accumulate in the unit, so we recommend cleaning out any particles and debris from the unit to help save you money and energy in the long run.

Test Your Thermostat

How do you know if your HVAC is being overworked? Try testing your thermostat. If you can see an accurate temperature reading displayed, it is working properly. Fall maintenance is the perfect time to double check all the settings you have set up on your thermostat. With cooler temperatures, you will want your home to be warmer so it is a good idea to change the settings on your thermostat based on the upcoming fall weather.


Schedule Maintenance

Contact JOB Heating and Air Conditioning to have an HVAC professional conduct a thorough maintenance inspection of your HVAC unit and address any problems it may be having. With regular maintenance from experts, your HVAC unit will produce lower energy costs, increase its efficiencies and leave you never having to worry about the maintenance yourself.

A warning for consumers about fraud in the furnace and air conditioning industry in Saskatoon

They also offer training classes at your personal site for maintenance and they also offer home heating tune-ups. JOB are Trusted Saskatoon Furnace experts and they can also help you with all your Saskatoon plumbing needs!In this Saskatoon HVAC article,  Jeff Bolton, owner of JOB, highlights how important it is to be aware of scams in the Saskatoon air-conditioning and furnace marketplace. 


JEFF FROM JOB WARNS AGAINST FRAUD IN SASKATOON’S HVAC INDUSTRY

The feeling of being ripped off is horrible, and I count myself fortunate that I haven’t been the victim of fraud very much in my life. However,  I am sad to say that I deal with victims of contractor fraud too often in Saskatoon.  In my latest article, I share another example that happened recently, as I want to educate consumers on what to look out for.- Jeff , owner of JOB


Fraud takes many different forms

I was recently at a lady’s home to provide a quote to replace the furnace and air conditioner. Her house was the same as most other homes in our city,  in fact she lives just  4 blocks away from my family. She invited me in and we exchanged pleasantries,  then I asked her the burning question that had been top of mind since I pulled up outside.  Why was she requesting a quote for a new home comfort system in a house that was no more than 12 years old?

She explained that the night before her furnace had stopped working. This was especially an issue as the overnight temperature in Saskatoon had dropped to about  -30C. Unfortunately, she was unaware that JOB offers 24-hour emergency service and she had called another company.

The other company turned up, identified the problem but they didn’t have the part required ( It was 4 am, so I give them a pass on that one,) . They  returned at 8:30 am with the correct part to fix the issue and the tech took it upon himself to go through her furnace and air conditioner. He noted that there were old watermarks both on the side and at the base of the furnace, which I can verify. As someone that has a career in the furnace and air conditioning industry, the source of the water was very evident to me.It was clear that at some point, probably in the summertime, the evaporator coil had frozen and then melted.

One indication about this was the plugged air filter leaning up against the furnace.


The other technician told this very nice lady that her furnace was over ten years old and a crack COULD happen in the heat exchanger (even though he couldn’t find any crack) and that would send carbon monoxide into her home potentially killing her, her partner and her dogs!! If that ominous threat was not enough,  he also told her that her air conditioner unit had a leak and would also need to be replaced.


Now, it is possible that she may have a leak in the air conditioner, but there’s simply no way to determine that when it’s -26C outside!  Saying that she has a leak when there is a dirty filter right there is, “bullcrap!”


The other thing that I haven’t mentioned yet, is the 3 carbon monoxide detectors I saw in her home. I will not downplay carbon monoxide poisoning,  because it is the biggest threat to life that we face in the HVAC industry, however, there was no sign of that here. When questioned, she confirmed that the carbon monoxide detectors had never gone off. In addition, one of the detectors displays the level of CO present and when I checked it showed zero.


Let me be VERY clear here, this person was simply using fear tactics to sell a new furnace and air conditioner to this lady.

If you get a flat tire on your Chevy do you buy a new Mercedes??

 

 

 

“But he said I’m in imminent danger!” Said the lady

 

The moral of the story about fraud in Saskatoon’s HVAC Industry, is to be careful, ask questions and deal with the right people. Start by looking for businesses on TrustedSaskatoon .com.
