Jotul Stoves.



A wood stove has been the traditional way to heat a home over the years and it often is the centrepiece of turning a house into a home. Even though we’re nestled deeply into the 21st century, this type of home heating still makes a lot of sense. Using wood to heat a home has many benefits, from an added beauty and ambiance in the home to independence from fluctuating utility bills.

 

Wheatland Fireplace, Kitchen, & Bath is proud to carry Jotul products. Jotul is one of the world’s oldest producers of stoves, inserts, and fireplaces. Building on a proud Norwegian heritage, they have combined fine craftsmanship with the art of coping with the cold for 160 years.

Based on the award-winning Jotul F 305 woodstove, the Jotul GF 305 DV IPI offers the same modern, cast iron styling in a freestanding direct vent gas stove. Smooth cast iron lines and sleek curves frame an extra-large fire view that only Jotul can produce.  Fueled by the new ceramic JotulBurner III, the Jotul GF 305 presents the perfect union of high efficiency and modern cast iron design.

 

 

Inspired by the immensely popular Jotul GF 370, the compact Jotul GF 160 DV IPI offers the same spectacular three-sided fire view, but with a truly unique tripod base. A modern design marvel, the Jotul GF 160 DV IPI strikes the perfect balance between form and functionality.

 

A descendant of our signature best-selling Jotul F 500 Oslo wood stove, the Jotul GF 500 DV IPI Portland offers the same whole house heating capabilities at the push of a button.  Fueled by the new ceramic JotulBurner™ III  the Jotul GF 500 presents the perfect union of high efficiency and timeless cast iron design.

 

 

 

Over 1,000,000 of these fine stoves have been produced and sold throughout the world – making the Jotul F 602 CB the best-selling woodstove ever produced. From the beautiful glass door to the sculpted charging lion on the side plates, this stove is truly a timeless work of art. In fact, you can own the best for the lowest price of any EPA approved cast iron woodstove!

 

Leading the way in clean combustion technology, Jotul now offers the convenience of top-loading in a non-catalytic wood stove.  Utilizing Jotul’s patent-pending rotating baffle, the Jotul F 50 TL Rangeley, can be easily loaded from the top with the turn of a handle.  For those looking for long overnight burn times, the Jotul F 50 TL Rangeley also has a convenient front-load option that allows for our legendary front-to-back “cigar burn”.

Trusted Saskatoon Security Experts REED Security Talk Doorbell Security Cameras

Reed Security believes when you become a client you will be entering into a relationship – one they want to grow and become long term...they work hard to meet all your Saskatoon Alarm & security needs from day one! Reed Security are Trusted Saskatoon Alarm and Security Experts 


See and Hear Visitors at Your Front Door




Your front doorway is a busy place. With visitors introducing themselves, your kids charging to and from the school bus, packages arriving, and hellos and goodbyes galore, it's hard for you to keep track of everyone who passes through.  It's no wonder that doorbell cameras are now a smart home must-have, thanks to their ability to show you who's at the door, no matter where you are. 

And with a ReedHD™ Doorbell Camera, that's just the start. 

Because these doorbell cameras are fully integrated into your smart home security system, they're powered by Alarm.com and able to cooperate with other devices. That gives you and your family more ways to incorporate your doorbell camera into your everyday life. 

Answer Your Door From Anywhere

A ReedHD™ Doorbell Camera gives you a safe, smart way to see who's at the door, no matter where you are. When a visitor rings the doorbell, you get an Alarm.com smartphone alert. Open your Alarm.com app and you'll see a video feed of who's there, with a microphone icon that you can press to start a voice conversation through the doorbell. 

Although you can see your visitor, they can't see you, and you don't need to indicate whether you're home or not. Given that burglars often ring a home's doorbell before a break-in, this makes your video doorbell a great crime deterrent. 

Protect a Package from Thieves 

With a smart lock included in your Alarm.com-powered setup, you can go a step further and unlock your door remotely. This is great for protecting valuable deliveries that would otherwise be left on your porch. 

If you have a smart lock, you'll see an ‘unlock' icon in your app underneath your doorbell's video feed. Once you've verified the delivery person visually, tap once to unlock your door and ask them to leave the package inside. When they're done, use your app to lock your door and watch them leave. 
See and Share Suspicious Activity. A ReedHD™ Doorbell Camera is also a full smart home security camera, ready to capture and send you footage of suspicious activity in your front yard or porch area. 

A visitor to your porch will trigger a motion-activated video recording, even if they don't press the doorbell. You can have these clips delivered to your phone right away, where they're easy to download and forward to your partner, neighbours or local police department. 

Keep Up With Your Kids

Crooks and intruders aside, most activity at your front door is ‘good' activity: friends visiting and family arriving home. Reed makes it easy to keep up. It's easy to create a custom doorbell camera alert, triggered by your kids' Alarm.com user codes, that sends you a video clip of your kids arriving home every day. It's a great way to make sure they're home safe and know who they're with. Once the kids know they're on camera, they might even give you a wave. 

PS: It's Also a Doorbell 

Sometimes, you just need a doorbell. You'll be pleased to hear that a ReedHD™ Doorbell Camera goes above and beyond, with both an audible chime and a special ‘Do Not Disturb' option that parents of young children will love.  Instead of waking a napping youngster with an audible chime when pushed, your video doorbell will simply trigger a silent smartphone alert that only disturbs you. 

Is it Time For You To Upgrade to a ReedHD™ Doorbell Camera? 

If you already have an Alarm.com-powered smart home security system, Reed Security can quickly upgrade you with a doorbell camera or other smart devices, including indoor and outdoor video cameras, smart locks and even a smart thermostat.



Trusted Saskatoon Physiotherapists at Boehm's Physiotherapy Discuss The MEAT vs. RICE Approach

At Boehm’s Physiotherapy, the primary focus is on the patient. The physiotherapists at Boehm’s will listen to your story in order to fully understand how your injury is affecting so they can begin to build goals to restore the level of activity you desire. They are Trusted Saskatoon Physiotherapists and Exercise Specialists and are listed under the Trusted Saskatoon Health & Wellness category. Boehm’s Physiotherapy will set you on the right path to a healthy recovery.


The M.E.A.T vs. R.I.C.E Approach – A Recovery Recipe or a High Protein Diet?


R.I.C.E

When you initially have an injury, RICE is the approach to guide you through the first few days:




Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation

When you initially hav SO - if you just RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation), are you ready to return to your activities? The answer is no. RICE by itself is not a meal, or a prescription for return to health from an injury. You need MEAT. This is where physiotherapy comes in to assist your recovery.


M.E.A.T


Movement, Exercise, Analgesia, Treatment



M - Movement. Physiotherapists guide you with how to first move. After an injury to compliment healing and prepare the injury for further loading. This may be in nearby areas to keep the whole body healthy and ready for the next phase of your recovery. Early movement can make a more complete and pain free recovery. 

E - Exercise is medicine, and the proper exercise can create healthy stress in the injury to allow the body to rebuild. During assessment and treatment sessions, we prescribe exercise at a starting point appropriate to your injury at the time it is needed.

A - Analgesia is what to do to control pain and assist early movement in being pain free. During treatment, we tape, support, instruct with use of pillows ways to control and eliminate pain.

T - Treatment is the golden nugget - our knowledge of injury and the body lets us use techniques to assist the actual injured tissue from pain back to strong, elastic, functioning tendons, ligaments and muscles. The right things at the right time -- ask to see one of the physiotherapists at Boehm's Physiotherapy today and get the treatment that can guide you back to health and performance!

The professionals at Razor strive to bring you quality products and services with a budget-minded solution. Razor Heating & Air Conditioning is a TRUSTED SASKATOON AIR CONDITIONING & FURNACE EXPERT!


Why Your Air Conditioner Is Not Cooling.


An A/C 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 labelled. 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 centimetres 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 want 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 you’re 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.
