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!

Treeternity your Trusted Saskatoon Memorial Forest shares Rob Wurzers Story

Thought about Planting a Tree For A Loved One? Treeternity is a Trusted Saskatoon Memorial forest and they offer an eco-friendly, modern way to celebrate an event, loved one, pet or family with a tree and plaque in a beautiful park. Treeternity, allows you to celebrate or remember an important person or aspect of your life in an environmentally positive way. 

LET A TREE TELL YOUR STORY...

Treeternity is your Trusted Saskatoon Memorial Forest and in this article, they share a personal story. A Time to Remember'

 Rob Wurzer's Story by Maureen Haddock

As long as I live, I will think of Rob Wurzer every November. Rob, our friend and business partner, passed away on November 4, 2016. We held his public memorial on what would have been his 58th birthday. He was born on November 11, 1958.

The summer of 2016 will, forever, be Rob’s summer. As his health declined, my husband, who was Rob’s executor, spent many hours at the hospital discussing the business, the estate, and more personal concerns. I spent time with his wife talking about life, death, and remembering. Somehow, during this time, I heard about a magical, memorial forest, just west of Saskatoon. This forest, still in its infancy, is the vision of Mia Hollinger. When we suggested to Rob that his memorial place be in a forest, he immediately liked the idea. Rob also loved the idea that Treeternity was a new business endeavour, like TVTruck, the company we shared with Rob. He was able to vividly imagine the forest, as it might look in the future.


Treeternity is a place to remember people, pets, accomplishments, and occasions. You can even plant a family tree, adding additional plaques, as the family expands. People love to visit green spaces, and each tree in the memorial park is surrounded by protected land.  You can visit the Treeternity website to watch a video illustrating how this memorial forest might look in its maturity. The site also provides a way to reach Mia Hollinger, owner and developer of the memorial forest. Mia’s blog, also on her website, covers sensitive issues and offers helpful suggestions on many topics. While in the process of planning Rob’s memorial tribute, I called Mia for more information about Treeternity. Mia made it possible for Rob’s friends and family to make a donation to Rob’s memorial tree, in lieu of flowers. She provided a site map, and we were able to select a plot with meaningful coordinates. We decided Rob’s oak tree would be planted in plot 11 of row 58, reflecting his birth date of 11,11,1958. Of course, we had to wait until spring to actually plant his tree.  

Rob’s tree was about five feet tall when we planted it in June of 2017, and Burr Oaks grow about a foot a year. I plan to have a photo taken beside Rob’s tree each year since it was approximately my height when we planted it. With luck, it will be as tall as my husband, Gord, by the summer of 2018. We personalized a 9” by 5” plaque with a favourite quote. Mia was available to help us with every question and decision. I wondered what might happen if something unforeseen occurred to the business. Mia assured me that Treeternity has an agreement with the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation to donate the land as wildlife conservation, so memorial trees will be enjoyed by future generations.

On the day of the planting, we kept the group small, knowing we had already celebrated with a public ceremony. Initially, Rob’s wife held the tree as each of us placed some dirt around the roots. She sprinkled some of Rob’s ashes there, too. We talked and took photos, and, as we walked away, we were given a certified keepsake certificate. I still remember Rob laughing at the idea of being a tree, symbolically, of course. I love the idea of sitting in the gazebo at Treeternity, some summer in the future, talking to my husband about our time with Rob and remembering the summer of 2016. It’s a quiet, beautiful, young park, and I intend to watch it grow old.

My mother-in-law, at 97, loves the poem Trees. I imagine you have guessed what I am thinking. Since Treeternity is a place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and other milestones, I think we could give her a tree for her 98th birthday. After all, Treeternity is a happy place.

Trees

By Joyce Kilmer

I think that I shall never see

A poem as lovely as a tree. 

A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed 

Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast. 

A tree that looks at God all day 

And lifts her leafy arms to pray 

A tree that may in summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair

Upon whose bosom snow has lain

Who intimately lives with rain

Poems are made by fools like me  

But only God can make a tree. 


Have Questions? Check out the links below:

Each tree has its own story so there are countless reasons why planting a tree might be something you want to do. You can also offer it as a unique gift for someone you love, they are the perfect example of something that gives more than once.

Oh wedding cake, we will never stop loving you! But whether we’re talking about the fillings and frostings or gorgeous decorations, this spring’s trends are going to make it mighty hard to say “I Do” to just one.

Foliage Fun


Take those show-stopping sugar blooms one step farther with extra foliage! Be on the lookout this spring for cakes with heavy foliage accents, fresh green palettes, or leafy designs. 

You might even spot some fresh herb-inspired decorations. Rosemary is one of our favourites because of its feathery, plume-like appearance.











Shine with Sequins.


More and more brides are using silver and gold accents to add some sparkle to their big day, and the cake is no exception.

Edible sequins are the way to go here and don't be scared to go bold, coating an entire tier in a layer of twinkly bits. Another option: create custom shaped sequins by painting slivered almonds or small fondant cutouts with lustre dust.













Sealed With A Kiss


A cake that matches your invites? 
Why not! 
Edible wax seals (made out of candy melts!) are the prettiest little accents hidden among sugar flowers. Just keep ‘em simple — the bride and groom’s initial works well — to make sure the effect is clear.











Bigger Isn’t Better


Whether you’re having a small reception or just want to save some money, a petite cake may be just the ticket. More brides are opting to show off their cake style without three tiers or lots of fuss. We love a small, semi-naked cake piled with fresh flowers and maybe even a personalized topper.



Watercolour Wonders


The soft and romantic strokes of watercolour paint are perfect for weddings. And brides are taking note: This artistic style is showing up on invites, signage and, yes, cakes. Watercolour washes on a cake can be as bold or as subtle as you want, and also make a beautiful backdrop to other decorations like vibrant flowers, fruits and foliage. 


Bold Florals

Dramatic floral arrangements are perfect for wedding cakes, and they feel even fresher when the cake underneath is left semi-naked. One thing you’re gonna see everywhere: Large, cascading roses sweeping down and around a tower of tiers. That’s a lot to love!

What's the difference between good food and absolutely incredible dining?  Fresh, quality ingredients, generous portions, imagination and creativity!  

From a simple catered lunch with gourmet sandwiches, to a PickNics Candlelight Dinner In A Box for 2 for a romantic evening in, to a fabulous catered wedding or special event catering.

Let Nicola and the team at Picknic's Catering create something special for you!

eCommerce Definition, In a nutshell, eCommerce is just the process of buying and selling produce by electronic means such as by mobile applications and the Internet.

eCommerce enables you to buy and sell products on a global scale, twenty-four hours a day without incurring the same overheads as you would with running a brick and mortar store. For the best marketing mix and the best conversion rate, the venture should also have a physical presence; this is better known as a click and mortar store.
