Razor Heating and A/C


A History Of Excellent Service To Be Proud Of.


Razor Heating and A/C Ltd. is celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2022 and is owned by Jeff Rewerts and Dustin Shaw. They are a local team that is dedicated to never stopping learning, and they ensure that they are always up to date with the latest HVAC industry standards.  Over the last 15 years, they have invested their energies into building a Saskatoon heating, cooling  & plumbing company to be proud of.

They specialize in the service and replacement of all heating, cooling, water heating, and plumbing needs. Razor Heating and A/C is Saskatoon's trusted choice for everything from a whole house renovation, to the mechanical needs of your dream home, to simple preventative maintenance on your existing home's mechanical system.


Jeff, and Dustin, believe that the most important bit of advice anyone can give to you when it comes to hiring an HVAC contractor is to check their referrals and recommendations. They walk the walk - On Facebook, they have 78 x 5* star reviews and, combined with over 175 Google reviews at an average 4.9* rating, it's clear they are continually impressing their customers! Let's face it, not many contractors achieve that consistently great feedback and impressive review score! 

Here are some examples to showcase - if you take the time to look at their online reviews you will notice the comments are echoed time and again throughout their customer testimonials.


Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness, Value


“We have been using Razor for a few years. They are always professional, on time, and have decent pricing. They fixed the wrongdoings of other companies and repaired and replaced the parts needed. They explained it all before and after. Even how to maintain it. Best service we’ve had. “- Tim Sharpe


“Had our Boiler/heating system for the house go down over the weekend. Razor was able to get us up and running again in less than 2 hours! This also included a rundown of how the system functioned, how we can maintain it and things to watch out for. This work was also done on a weekend after hours when most/all suppliers are closed for a boiler that needed a universal part since the boiler is older and not very common. Can't say thank you enough. I would recommend Razor Heating and A/C Ltd. to anyone who needed work done!” Shane Johnson

Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Responsiveness, Value


“ Razor Heating replaced our furnace and did a great job so I did not hesitate to call them about our garage heater venting issue. Jeff took the time to talk to me and understand my concerns. I really appreciated his recommendation for the repair that would bring our garage heater venting up to the current code. He provided a quote and it included detailed information.  The technicians were professional and introduced themselves and completed the repairs in a timely matter.Paul Malbeuf

Meet the Razor Heating and AC Team 

Their path to entrepreneurship started in early 2007.  

  


Dustin, the guy behind Razor’s social media shares his journey…

“I began my career in late spring of 1999 with a local HVAC service and installation company here in Saskatoon. This is where I completed my apprenticeship in Plumber/Gas fitter. I gained a wealth of knowledge in my time there through apprenticeship training along with real world scenarios on the job site. In early spring of 2007 Razor Heating & A/C Ltd. started to get in the works. Jeff and I opened our doors in our first location by the airport. Within 5 years we had outgrown that  location and purchased our own place in the north east  of Saskatoon within the industrial area close to Silverwood. Aside from every aspect of running the business I enjoy time spend with friends and family outdoors. Especially sharing everything I enjoyed as a child with my son Nash. Everything from fishing, snowmobiling, quading, biking and projects around the house. Thanks for everything friends and family!!!!!“ - Dustin Shaw
Co-owner Jeff had this to say.  
“ I am a journeyman plumber and general gas fitter and I’ve been in the trade since 1998l. I love the daily challenges owning a business brings,  as well as interacting with all the customers and our awesome employees. In my  spare time I spend time fishing- (lake, fly and salt water fishing) ,   snowmobiling, and I treasure time at the lake with my wife Amanda and our three kids. “ Jeff Rewerts

Their longest-serving employee is Laura Slugowski. Jeff and Dustin explain that she is the glue that keeps the place running as smoothly as it does. Laura was indentured into the trade in early 2010 and completed her journeyperson plumber and general gas fitter in 2013. More recently she shifted into the office taking the role of office manager. Laura is the friendly helpful voice on the phone, she provides superior service to customers calling in as she truly understands the issues you may be facing and can provide her expert assistance to help troubleshoot from the 1st interaction you have with the company! 


A word from Sara, the Trusted Saskatoon founder, about her personal experience with Razor. 

 

“Razor has a wonderful reputation in the city, not just with the hundreds of happy and loyal customers they have serviced over the years, but also within the contractor community itself. They are respected for both their expertise and the fact that they can always be counted on to show up and do awesome work every time. In all honesty, nothing much has changed at Razor since I first met Jeff and Dustin in 2012, they have the same commitment to excellence and the same drive to be the best they can be!
I guess the most obvious difference is the change in facial hair from that first picture in 2007! Dustin’s beard has become part of the Razor brand! 

My family has hired Razor on a number of occasions over the last 10 years, and my partner Kim ( who is very hard to please ), has always been impressed with their work and we both appreciate their honest expert advice. The guys are very humble, so I want to take this opportunity to shine a spotlight on them and to say how proud we are at Trusted Saskatoon to have such an integrity-driven team as part of our community. The trade has a lot of negativity surrounding it, I have heard so many stories of nightmare jobs and companies leaving consumers in an awful mess with bad quality work. In fact, I started Trusted becuase I was ripped off by a big plumbing company right here in Saskatoon. I know that Jeff & Dustin spend a lot of their time fixing others shoddy work, and that they truly care about their reputation, their customers, their partners and their team. They contiue to get a big thumbs up from me!" - Sara Wheelwright - Trusted Saskatoon Founder.

Why Your Air Conditioner Is Not Cooling

An A/C unit that’s not cooling your home is a big problem. After all, that’s its one job.

When you’re A/C doesn’t perform as it should, it’s frustrating, time-consuming, and very hot.

There are several reasons your air conditioner may be failing to perform. The experts at Razor Heating and Air Conditioning are going to walk through each one – and how best to fix it.


1. Your Thermostat Isn’t Cooperating

Your first stop is your thermostat. You should make sure that your thermostat is not only set to ‘ON’ but that it is set to ‘COOL’. Test that it’s working by setting the thermostat several degrees cooler than the stated temperature. You want to feel that chill!


If you can hear the air conditioner running, but minutes later still don’t feel any cool air coming through the vents, there could be something wrong with your thermostat and its electrical wiring. Fixing that problem is best left to a professional. You should also make sure all your windows and doors are sealed shut, and your supply and return vents are open and unblocked. It’s little things like this that are easy to forget about but super easy to fix.


2. A Breaker Has Been Tripped

This tip is only for those homeowners whose air conditioners are not running at all. Your A/C runs on electricity. No electricity going to your air conditioner means no cool air making your home a summer paradise. It’s time to travel to the location of your breaker panel and do a check. The breakers for your air conditioner should be clearly labeled. Flip them off and on again, and see if this makes a difference.

3. Your Air Filter Is Clogged

Just because your air filter is located in your furnace’s blower doesn’t mean it isn’t used by your air conditioner. Your furnace’s air handler is what pushes the cooled air through the filter, through your ductwork, and into your home.

Therefore, if your air filter becomes clogged with dirt and debris, it’ll act a lot like a cork in a bottle: little to nothing is getting past it. Razor Heating and Air Conditioning recommend checking your filter once a month and changing it at least every 3 months – more often if you have hairy pets, allergies, or a lot of people living in your home. Air filters can be found at local hardware and home stores. Make sure you replace your current filter with one that is the same size.

4. Your Outdoor Unit is Coated in Dirt and Debris

Sensing a theme here? Dirt is no friend to an air conditioner. Your air conditioner condenser is located outside your home and left exposed to the elements when in use. After a while, all that wind and rain is bound to blow some dirt and debris into it. If there’s too much dirt, your condenser can’t perform the heat exchange process efficiently. There are things you can do to help with this particular problem.

For example, tidying up the landscaping around your condenser will help keep branches, bushes, and other vegetation from adding to the debris buildup. Razor Heating and Air Conditioning recommend keeping about 46 centimeters of space clear on all sides of your condenser. You should also wash your condenser regularly with water and soap. Gently wipe away dirt from the condenser fins, being very careful that they don’t break. In the offseason, make sure your condenser has a cover and it is secured tightly.

5. Houston, We Have a Mechanical Problem

While annual maintenance is an excellent way to reduce your risk of mechanical breakdowns, they can still happen. Whether it’s a broken fan motor or compressor, a mechanical problem could be the reason your A/C is not cooling properly. If you suspect a mechanical problem, you should call Trusted Saskatoon Air Conditioning Experts at Razor Heating and Air right away.

6. The Refrigerant in Your Air Conditioner is Leaking

Air conditioners use continuously circulating refrigerant to cool air. Normally the level of refrigerant never changes and your air conditioner is perfectly fine. If you spring a leak, that refrigerant level drops – and so does the amount of cool air you get. Refrigerant leaks can be identified by ice buildup, hissing noises, or a noticeable decrease in cooling efficiency. If you think you have a refrigerant leak, turn off your air conditioner and call us right away. This is a problem that should only be handled by experienced professionals.


7. Your AC Wasn’t Properly Installed

Unfortunately, this is seen all the time with both air conditioners and furnaces. An improperly installed air conditioner just won’t provide the cool air you need in an efficient manner. This is something you’ll notice after you get a new air conditioner. They can provide you with a second opinion, and do what they can to fix any potential problems. The size of your air conditioner is also incredibly important. If it’s too big or too small, you won’t be able to efficiently cool your home. Before you buy an air conditioner, meet with a qualified home specialist who can perform an evaluation and make recommendations.

8. Your Air Conditioner is Over the Hill

There comes a day when even the best air conditioner in the world just gets to be too old. Generally, after 15 years, you want to start paying close attention to how your air conditioner performs. If it gets to a point where you’re spending hundreds of dollars a year to keep it going, or you’re A/C is not cooling your home at all, it’s time for a replacement. The experts at Razor can perform an in-home consultation and walk you through the latest models, making recommendations for your home and your needs.

Trusted Saskatoon Air Conditioning & Furnace Experts at Razor Heating discuss proper boiler installation:


Importance of a Quality Boiler Installation

 

Just like a furnace, the importance of a quality boiler is installation is key for proper operation. A boiler that is installed improperly can cause premature failure in the unit and can result in you spending more money to repair it or replace it. There was a case where Razor Heating and Air Conditioning came in and repaired a boiler installation that was installed by a different company improperly. Make sure your boiler installation is done correctly the first time.

 


Things to Consider When Having a Boiler Installed in Your Home:


- Product Quality: 
Do some searches about the quality of the brand you're installing, or ask your HVAC professional about the brand.


- Company Reputation: 

Make sure to check how long the HVAC company has been in business, their reviews and testimonials, and any installation photos they have.


- HVAC Service: 


Make sure that the company you hire also offers service in addition to installations. In the case that you do need assistance with your new boiler installation, you want to know the company can help.


- Boiler Warranty: 


Ask the company what warranty is offered with your boiler installation.


A high-quality boiler can last for many years, but proper care and maintenance are important. They can provide you with the proper services needed to keep your boiler working effectively. If you need more details about boiler installation in Saskatoon contact Razor Heating and Air Conditioning today!

Experts at Razor Heating & Air Conditioning Discuss How the Cold Affects Vehicles

Saskatchewan winters are really hard on vehicles. If you are one of the lucky ones to already have a Unit Heater for your garage then you know what I am referencing to. If not, here are some of the benefits that can be experienced, from the experts at Razor Heating & Air Conditioning themselves. 

Q: How does the cold affect vehicles? Does it have many negative effects?


The rubber compound in all-season tires hardens when temps drop below? 7C, causing them to lose grip, whereas winter tires stay soft and stick to the road in sub-zero temperatures.

Motor oil thickens when cold, making it harder for the engine to turn over on the first start of the day. This is further exacerbated by the fact that battery output drops by about half at -18C. It also declines gradually with age, so an older battery that’s fine in warm weather might fail in the cold.

Your engine runs least efficiently during the first 20 minutes or so after cold start-up, before it has warmed to operating temperature.

 

Windshields will be more vulnerable to damage. Never use hot water to clear a frosted windshield, as it could crack. Alcohol sprays, such as Frost Buster, Prestone Heat or ordinary rubbing alcohol are safer alternatives. These can also be added to washer fluid to increase freeze-up protection.




Some of your items will be more susceptible to harm depending on the materials they are made of. Wood and metal will expand and contract during freezing and thawing, which can cause the material to warp or weaken and sometimes split or crack. Leather and other materials may yellow or degrade more easily after being exposed to freezing temperatures.


There are many reasons to support the installation of unit heaters whether it be recreational, storage, or for the purpose of a shop function.
