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.

They provide prompt, courteous and professional service. In their latest Tip they share advice on what programmable and smart thermostat could be best for you. Gibbon Heating and Air Conditioning are TRUSTED SASKATOON Air Conditioning & Furnace Professionals.

Programmable and Smart Thermostat: Which One is Best For You?


A new thermostat is a relatively small investment that delivers great rewards. If you are currently using a manual thermostat in your home, it is important to know what your options are.

With both a programmable and smart thermostat, it gives you the opportunity to feel more confident in your energy savings, environmental footprint, and ability to maintain a comfortable home throughout the year. Modern thermostats are digitized, accurate, and capable of providing more usability than their older style manual counterparts did. But what is the difference between a programmable and smart thermostat?

Programmable Thermostat

A programmable thermostat allows you to set automatic schedules for heating and cooling, delivering the temperature you require at the time you want. This is a great feature if you are away from your home during the day, allowing you to set a temperature so your system is not running when no one is home but kicks in when you typically return for the day.

Programmable thermostats are very convenient since you do not have to manually increase or decrease the temperature. You could also save money on your energy bills with the ability to not run your heating or cooling unit while not at home.

Smart Thermostat

You can further maximize your overall experience with a smart thermostat that’s right for your indoor space. Smart thermostats learn from your behaviour and start making the temperature adjustments on their own over time.

Smart Thermostats can be very beneficial, however there are a couple things to remember with this application. They are Wi-Fi enabled thermostats meaning the more Wi-Fi usage in your home, the slower the entire system can be. Many times the installation of a Wi-Fi stat requires an additional “fast stat” that is installed to communicate between the equipment (kind of like a mini router).

A benefit of the smart thermostat being Wi-Fi enabled is that they can be adjusted through an app accessible from your cell phone or computer.

Programmable or Smart, Which Should You Pick?

It depends! Your choice depends on what works best for you and your home. Regardless of which one you choose, making the upgrade to a digital thermostat from a manual thermostat is a great decision to better control your heating and cooling and optimize your home’s investment.

High-Pressure Sales Tactics: Do Your Research

Claims of high-pressure sales tactics, as well as false, incorrect or misleading information about natural gas appliance sales have been skyrocketing. The claims include salespeople being intentionally vague about the funding source of a rebate or offer, and has resulted in customers assuming the salesperson is a government or SaskEnergy rebate. They are not.

SaskEnergy and SaskEnergy Network Members do not allow or conduct door-to-door sales activities. As a precaution, we are encouraging homeowners to do their research before signing a contract or investing in new heating and cooling equipment.

Unfortunately, there has been many cases where customers have felt pressured into quickly signing agreements without fully understanding what they are agreeing to or the cost of the equipment they are agreeing to buy or rent.

“Don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions, thoroughly review financing contracts and fine print before you sign, research the company, and shop around by gathering quotes from other local contractors.” said Carolyn Bagnell, Executive Director for MCAS, in a news release.

If a contract has already been signed, and the homeowner feels they have been misled on the service, equipment or cost, they have the ability to halt the transaction within 10 days of signing the contract. Misleading sales tactics can come from door-to-door selling or from phone calls from telemarketers trying to sell or rent you heating and cooling equipment.

Lodge a Complaint

Gibbon Heating & Air Conditioning wants to help keep everyone as safe as possible during these times. If you have experienced misleading heating and cooling equipment sales tactics, we encourage you to call the Financial and Consumer Affairs Authority (FCAA) of the Government of Saskatchewan at 306-787-5645 or 1-877-880-5550 (menu option #1) to lodge a formal complaint.

Is Replacing A Furnace Difficult?


 I get this question quite often and the answer is no not for industry professionals like J.O.B Heating and Air Conditioning. We specialize in replacing furnaces, air conditioners and water heaters. In fact, many times we replace the furnace, air conditioner and water heater all in the same day. Our process is simple, you ask us to come in and offer you a quote for replacement. I will come over to your home at no charge (within a 30KM radius of Saskatoon), I will view your old furnace and equipment. Look over the venting options and make sure that there are no unforeseen hiccups. Sometimes these hiccups do happen but when we see them ahead of the install date and plan for them then it becomes a seamless replacement. 


You want to be wary of the company that will offer you an estimate over the phone or the contractors that don't spend any time looking at your equipment or the install. They will say that they are "bonded" and you have nothing to fear. This may not always be the case. To be bonded simply means that in order to get as gas licence we need to put up a $5000 bond. Yes, that’s all that's required $5000.  This is why it is important to choose a contractor that would not only be licensed and bonded but would be part of professional groups such as the Sask Energy Network or Trusted Saskatoon.com. J.O.B Heating and Air Conditioning is very proud to be a part of both of these professional organizations. 


Being part of Trusted Saskatoon.com means that Trusted has looked behind the curtain and found that we are a company with high moral values. We also agree to uphold the 5 Trusted guarantees. Being a Sask Energy Network member also requires a high level of professionalism and Trust. J.O.B Heating and Air Conditioning carry a $5 million dollar liability policy when most companies carry $2million. We proudly share our WCB letter of good standing and a copy of our insurance certificate with every quote we do.


 


J.O.B Heating and Air Conditioning will make the replacement of your HVAC equipment an easy process. With the new Sask Energy furnace replacement plan and our financing options, there has never been a better time to replace your furnace, air conditioner and water heater. Don't be worried about an old or untrustworthy furnace, call J.O.B Heating today for peace of mind.

Trust JOB Heating & Air Conditioning with Saskatoon Heating And Furnace Issues

JOB Heating & Air Conditioning’s wonderful staff will be more than happy to provide you with an estimate for any home comfort improvement that you have in mind. 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 their latest Saskatoon furnace tip, owner Jeff Bolton,  shares why you can trust JOB with your Saskatoon heating and furnace issues.

The Importance of Trust. 

When calling someone for help, especially help in your own home, you really need to ask yourself – who can you trust? If you aren’t working with someone you can trust, how can you have any confidence you are being treated fairly, and the person working for you has your best interests at heart?


Jeffs Real Saskatoon Heating and Furnace Calls.

I was asked to go help two different ladies. Both lived on their own and had furnace issues. The first lady was what I would describe as everyone’s grandma, you know the type, sweet as sugar. The second was a single mother who was also a joy to meet. Both had very legitimate concerns with their furnaces. The first lady simply asked me to drop by and listen to her furnace because she thought that something was not right with it. I was in her furnace room for maybe 5 seconds and I could tell that the bearings in her inducer motor were on their last legs. We had one of our technicians over to her house later that afternoon to change the inducer motor and it turned out just fine. By calling me, she saved herself a possible (more likely probable) after hours call due to having no heat.

The second lady asked me to come and give her a quote on a new furnace because she was under the impression that her furnace needed to be changed. When I showed up I commented that the house was nice and warm. She told me that her brother had been by and found a loose wire on the furnace. I cycled the furnace on and off a few times and I believe that he was correct. Although this furnace is quite old I suggested she budget the appropriate amount to replace the furnace within 3 to 7 years. I explained what parts would cost her if they needed to be replaced. Of course, I didn’t charge her for my time because we don’t charge for furnace replacement quotes.

The trust issues with Saskatoon heating and furnace contractors

What I realized when listening to these ladies is that there is a real trust issue with companies that they hire to come into their homes in Saskatoon. Who can you trust and how do you know you can trust them? This is the very reason that Trusted Saskatoon was started. A wonderful lady who was a single mother had a company charge her a ridiculous amount of money to change a P-trap in her plumbing system in 2010.

She thought there should be a better way to find businesses you can trust, so she created trustedsaskatoon.com and launched it along with her 5 Trusted guarantees in 2011.



The 5 Trusted Guarantees are:

  1. Provide the service and quality promised.
  2. Complete the job on time.
  3. Charge the price quoted with NO surprises.
  4. Communicate honestly and be responsive to customer needs.
  5. Resolve any issues with customer satisfaction in mind.

To be a Trusted Saskatoon plumbing and heating company JOB, along with every Trusted business, must adhere to these 5 promises. I believe that these promises are the foundation of good customer service, and that integrity and honesty must be maintained at all times in everything we do. We use this approach when dealing with our customers or dealing with our vendors. By maintaining this sense of integrity, honesty, and respect no matter who we are dealing with, those values ingrain themselves in the culture of our company – acting according to these values just becomes the norm.

JOB Heating and Air Conditioning is a company you can trust with your Saskatoon heating and furnace worries.

Who can you trust with Saskatoon heating and furnace issues

If you or someone you know are in a similar position to the ladies I saw this week, remember that JOB Heating and Air Conditioning is a Trusted Saskatoon company and we approach every job like it was in our own mother’s house. If you need other services that JOB Heating doesn’t provide, www.trustedsasaktoon.com works with the top companies in each category. From personal experience in dealing with Trusted partners, I have witnessed the integrity that I expect and value. Don’t hesitate to use JOB Heating and Air for your plumbingheating, and air conditioning needs, and for all other needs check out trustedsaskatoon.com.

Trusted Saskatoon partners are here to help.

Jeff Bolton.
