Gas Line Installation From Trusted Saskatoon Professionals

Summer is around the corner, which means backyard BBQs, and enjoying time around the outdoor fireplace. Do you have a gas line installed properly to operate or are looking for an expert gas line installation? JOB Heating and Air Conditioning have been doing gas line installation for over 18 years in Saskatoon, Warman, Martinsville, and surrounding areas. We know the most cost-effective way to run a gas line for a BBQ, an outdoor fireplace, or a gas line for an indoor fireplace.

Avoid a Costly Mistake

gas line installation in Saskatoon, from an indoor or outdoor fireplace or your barbecue, is best left up to the experts. Despite the very obvious and serious danger that an inexperienced gas line installation can present, some homeowners still attempt to do this job themselves just so they can save a few dollars.

Even if it appears to be straightforward to install a gas line from a YouTube video, there are many variables involved that only a trained professional will know how to identify and/or work with.

In an incident our professionals heard about years ago that involved a DIY gas line installation gone wrong, the homeowner failed to cap a section of the line and the ensuing explosion left the Arizona man and his wife in the hospital and their home destroyed. As tragic as this incident was, it could have been even worse.

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.

PROBLEM WITH YOUR HVAC? WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE YOU CALL GIBBON HEATING 


What to Know Before You Call About Your HVAC in Saskatoon

Educating yourself on your HVAC equipment prior to placing a phone call will be very helpful to the technician that will visit your home. When you call for service on your HVAC in Saskatoon, the professional on the other end will ask you several questions. By being able to answer these questions, you can - in most cases - save yourself money by having fewer house calls with the technician having the tools to diagnose the problem sooner.

HVAC Information to Know: Brand, Age, Error Code

For example, your HVAC is not providing heat. You decide to call a service provider that you trust, such as Gibbon Heating & Air Conditioning in Saskatoon. One of our professionals will answer and ask you what brand of HVAC equipment you have and how old it is. Depending on the age you provide, they may ask you what error codes are showing on the equipment.  

By answering these few questions asked, you are providing the technician with important information to address the problem with your HVAC unit. When a customer cannot answer these issues while on the call, the service provider is essentially sending a technician to your house blind and unaware of where the issue is coming from.

Why Is This Important to Know About Your HVAC?

When the technician knows that the customer has, for example, a Bryant furnace that is 6 years old, providing an error code of 31, this tells them that there is an issue with the control board.

Once the technician is on-site, that is the first thing they will look at. If they did not know this information, they would have to perform a full system check on the HVAC unit to find out where the issues are. A technician’s time costs money. It is important to keep in mind that there is no way for ANY service provider to have all the necessary parts for every piece of HVAC equipment out there. 

At Gibbon Heating & Air Conditioning, we will address your problems with your HVAC in Saskatoon professionally. Contact Gibbon with any questions or concerns regarding your HVAC unit.

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

Boiler Saskatoon

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.).

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.
