SAVE MONEY ON YOUR NATURAL GAS BILL


Natural gas is an important part of Canada’s energy resources. More than six million Canadians use natural gas to light, heat and cool homes and businesses, to heat water, and for cooking.  Many Canadians have higher natural gas bills than they would like.


Check for Aging Equipment

If you are running an old, inefficient boiler or heating system, it may be wasting much of the energy it produces. It may never have had top-notch efficiency, to begin with, or it may have lost some capability with time and wear.

Blocked Vents and Impeded Airflow

The arrangement of the furniture and appliances in your home may block vents and restrict airflow. In this case, your natural gas heating system is likely working overtime because it’s much more difficult to heat your home to a comfortable temperature.

Lower the Thermostat

Especially in the winter, when gas bills soar, lowering the thermostat by even a couple of degrees can make a difference in your bill, helping you save as much as 5 to 10%. If lowering the heat would make your home uncomfortable in the evenings, try reducing the temperature only at night, or during the day if family members are at work. 

Invest in a Smart Thermostat

Have Gibbon Heating and Air Conditioning recommend a smart thermostat for your home. You can program a smart thermostat to adjust the heat to your particular schedule, so you won’t be heating or cooling your house even when no one’s home or everyone’s snuggled in bed. 

Turn Down the Water Heater

Some homes’ water heaters are set as high as 140 degrees, but most people don’t need their water that hot. To help save money on your gas bill, check your water heater and see if you can turn the temperature down while still allowing for comfortable showers and warm water for dishes.

Keep Doors and Windows Closed During the Winter and Open During the Cool Summer Nights

Along the same lines, be sure to keep doors and windows closed when your natural gas heating system is running. Opening windows and doors is great for cooling off a hot house on summer evenings, but in the colder seasons, it will let valuable heat escape.

Bundle Up

Especially in the winter, wearing extra layers helps keep your thermostat settings low and your gas bills reasonable. If you’re wearing a sweater or some cozy flannel pants, you may not even notice that you’ve turned the thermostat down a few degrees. And using extra blankets or down comforters can help keep you warm at night when your thermostat is in its energy-saving mode.

Natural Gas Check-Up

Have Gibbon Heating & Air Condition do a check-up on your plumbing, air conditioning and furnace. The check-up may show you how to save money on your Natural Gas Bill.

SAVE MONEY ON YOUR UTILITY BILLS


Prices are on the rise - fuel, groceries and now your utility bills. Every Saskatoon and area homeowner is looking for ways to save money on their utility bills. The good thing is that there are dozens of cash saving techniques available to all, ranging from simple usage changes to the installation of new efficient appliances. The good thing to remember is that money-saving plumbing tactics all save dough.


Lower Water Temperature on Water Heater

There’s no doubt that a hot shower does wonder to soothe a person, especially after a long day of work or a night out in the cold. That being said, how much more relaxing is a 140-degree bath than a 120-degree one? By default, most hot water heaters come from the manufacturer with a temperature setting of 140 degrees. This is partly to astound the customer when they feel how instantly warm the water is and also to eliminate the slight risk of passing on legionella bacteria. By turning down the water heater to 120-degrees, a homeowner can expect to save up to 10 per cent on energy costs and reduce the risk of scalding.

Use Low-Flow Faucets

We’ve all been preached to about how much money goes literally down the drain when the water is left running while brushing teeth in the morning. Most of us have curbed that bad habit but we can make the morning and evening routine even more energy-friendly with the use of low flow faucets. These devices can reduce water usage by 20-50 per cent a year by either mixing air within the water or lowering the output from around 2.2 gallons per minute down to 1.5.

Use Flood Detectors

There are devices that sell for around $20 that can be hooked up to appliances such as a washing machine to detect leaks and overflow, and subsequently, shut off the device or shut down the water supply. These small units provide sound peace of mind when you start a load of wash and leave the house and could save thousands of dollars in damage if a washer were to overflow and drip down into the drywall of the room below. 

Replace / Repair a Leaky Toilet

Another drain on your energy bills is a leaky toilet. A toilet that is constantly dripping or refills every 20 minutes can waste up to 7,000 gallons a month. It can take as little as $3 to fix a bad flapper and can save you up to $840 in a year. If you replace that toilet altogether with a low flow model the savings can be well over $1000 in a single year.

Get a Plumbing Inspection

Have Gibbon Heating and Air Condition examine the plumbing throughout your home so you can see if you’re losing water (thus money) through leaks, blockage, or other inhibitors. By finding and fixing leaks early, you not only save money but limit the chances of catastrophic damage down the line. They will also check to make sure shutoff valves and sump pumps work just in case of an emergency. 


These are a few tips to save money on your utility bills.

JOB Heating & Air Conditioning Trusted Saskatoon Furnace, A/C and Plumbing Pros For 10 Years

In this series of articles, we are shining a spotlight on the businesses that have been with us since we launched in 2011. We want to thank them for TRUSTING our team, and we are recognizing each of them individually for providing 10 years of OUTSTANDING service to the public of Saskatoon and surrounding areas! In this article, we celebrate and recognize Jeff and the team at JOB Heating & Air Conditioning - Trusted Saskatoon Furnace, A/C, and Saskatoon Plumbing Pros!

We are pleased to celebrate JOB Heating & Air Conditioning who have been a Trusted Saskatoon partner for over 10 years!

The JOB Heating & Air Conditioning team is well known for the air conditioning, furnace, and plumbing work they do for both residential and commercial customers. Jeff Bolton, worked up from employee to partner and he is now the trusted face of the company which currently has six employees. Jeff has been in the HVAC and Plumbing industry since 1989. With this many years of plumbing and heating expertise under his belt, he has a clear vision and commitment to always putting the customer and his community first. Spending many years as a volunteer, serving the community's greatest needs has given Jeff the right balance of drive and determination to always do the right thing. He has a really big heart and is dedicated to always putting the customer's needs first, he prides himself on JOB’s record of integrity, honesty, and service, and he takes being trusted very seriously.

As Jeff would say…”I do what I say, and say what I do!”

“One of Jeff’s biggest challenges over the years has been competing with kijiji’s plumbers and other HVAC companies that don’t abide by reasonable industry standards or even properly insure or register their businesses. Companies that are often run by folks that over promise and under deliver, they often undercut on price to get the job and end up not delivering on the service. Many try to make it up by high pressure sales on work or products the customer may not need. This is the total opposite of how Jeff and his team operates and as someone who was ripped off by an unscrupulous company myself I am wary. I am happy to say that I have used JOB personally several times over the last 10 years and the experience is always stellar."
- Sara Wheelwright, Trusted Founder

The JOB Heating & Air team also prides itself on being recognized as a leader in water heating system technology for new in-floor and boiler installations in Saskatoon. Jeff is passionate about what he does and his enthusiasm is infectious. What you see truly is what you get with Jeff, he is authentic and cares deeply about always leaving a good impression with clients and it is obvious that he values and supports his team, that’s why he wanted to create a business where people love to work! 

When asked about what drives Jeff, he explains his mantra around the shop is.

 “We do every job as if it was our own mother’s house. We treat each other (my coworkers) with respect and dignity and that just becomes the way that we treat everyone, especially our customers.” 

A great example of why JOB Heating & Air Conditioning has been a 10 Year Trusted Saskatoon Partner.

The Effects of a Clogged Air Filter on Air Conditioning Systems 

Clogged air filters are the primary cause of cooling system problems. Is it time to replace your air filter? Learn the effects a clogged air filter has on Air Conditioning systems from the experts at JOB Heating & Air Conditioning.

Clogged Air Filters Cause Air Conditioning Units to Work Overtime

When the air filter is clogged with dirt and debris, the Air Conditioning unit must work harder. This is to compensate for the blockage of airflow. When the air filter is dirty, the Air Conditioning unit must work overtime and is not effective at cooling the home. Replacing the air filter every 3 months will protect an Air Conditioning unit from becoming damaged, and can eliminate potential failure.

Clogged Air Filters Increase Energy Consumption

Clogged air filters increase energy consumption, which leads to higher energy bills. Because air conditioning systems rely on a blower fan to recirculate air, a dirty air filter can use up to 15% more energy. The more clogged the air filter is, the harder the fan has to work to draw cool air throughout the home. A clean air filter will allow the air conditioning system to function efficiently, resulting in both energy and cost savings.

Clogged Air Filters Cause Inadequate Cooling of Your Home

Air conditioning systems rely on a blower fan to recirculate air. When the air filter is clogged with dust and debris, the blower fan must work harder to pass air through. This results in reduced airflow. When airflow is reduced due to a clogged air filter, the air conditioning system must work harder to cool the home. The air conditioning system will also have to run longer in order to cool the home to the desired temperature level.

Clogged Air Filters Contribute to Poor Air Quality 

When the air filter is clogged, it allows dust and debris to be recirculated back into the home. Poor indoor air quality results in allergies and is problematic for people with respiratory conditions. Replacing the air filter ensures the air conditioning system will recirculate the cleanest air possible. A fresh air filter from JOB Heating & Air Conditioning will result in improved indoor air quality for you and your family this summer.

At JOB Heating and Air Conditioning, we fix, maintain, service, sell and install all brands of residential and commercial air conditioning units to Saskatoon and the surrounding area. To get your air filter replaced and keep your air conditioning unit operating at peak performance, simply contact JOB today. We guarantee to have you cooled down and comfortable in no time!

5 Reasons to Get Office Air Conditioning

Air conditioning not only creates a more comfortable and efficient workplace for clients and employees alike but did you know not having AC might be costing you money? Find out how, and why you should have office air conditioning from JOB Heating & Air Conditioning.

1. Workplace Efficiency 

Many studies have proved that an overheated workplace can affect employees' productivity. Shockingly, in most cases employees waste a minimum of one hour of their working time due to heat; in some cases like extremely high temperature, this number can be much higher. Also, employees try to avoid work when they are on the hot seat, and these factors affect employee productivity. Air conditioning systems in the office can reduce the waste of time caused by overheating, and that is a big reason to have air conditioning. 

2. Office Air Conditioning Promotes Better Health For Your Employees

Being a great business owner should be a high priority, however, the well-being of your employees should be the number one priority. If your employees enjoy themselves, they are less likely to be sick or irritable. This reduces medical expenses, therefore you get more productivity from employees. Reducing the temperature creates a non-favorable condition for germs to thrive, makes your employees feel better, and helps them stay healthy.

3. Your Clients Are Refreshed 

When you install AC in your workplace, not only will your employees feel comfortable, but your clients will as well. You can have your clients or customers come to your office without any hesitation due to discomfort. This increases the chances of your business growing. 

4. Comfortable Work Environment

Air conditioning in the office not only gives energy to your employees for hard work, but they work smartly as well. It is a proven fact that people that work in a comfortable environment with proper air conditioning make fewer mistakes. Also, a comfortably cool office can increase the concentration of your employees. Achieving these results is nearly impossible if you have an overheated, uncomfortable office.

5. Saving Money

Most new business owners avoid installing air conditioning in the office due to higher costs and instead, run numerous smaller fans to keep the office cool in summer. The fact is, running these smaller fans costs as much in electricity as air conditioning and often has less desirable results. Indeed, it consumes more power compared to a normal fan, but in the long run, the overall savings are greater with AC. So, if you compare the cost along with the benefits mentioned above, then you can realize the overall savings is more with AC compared to other cooling options.
