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

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.).

In their latest article, they discuss what in-floor heating is and a few benefits it offers you and your home.

In-Floor Heating: Add Warmth to Your Home

Is in-floor heating the right decision for your home? There’s no denying underfloor heating is the coziest way to warm your toes in our long Saskatchewan winters! See below on why the investment of in-floor heating may be the best one for you and your home.

What is Underfloor Heating?

In-floor heating, also called radiant floor heating or underfloor heating, is a luxurious home feature and a popular trend in new housing, as well as in renovations that focus on clean, comfortable, design-led living. It is a cost-effective way to warm your house.

What Type of Floor Can Heating Be Installed?

You are free to choose the floor type of your new home or renovation for underfloor heating as it works well with laminate, wood, tile, stone, or carpet.

In-Floor Heating is a Cost-Efficient, Long Term Investment

When making the decision to install heated flooring, the cost is the first factor. Installing in-floor heating, whether you choose water-based or electric, can require you to renovate your entire flooring as opposed to installing a furnace.

After the heating system has been fully implemented in a home, heating bills typically cost less as heated flooring tends to conserve more energy than traditional furnaces and heating systems, meaning it is run more efficiently and therefore costs less to run.

Retain Warmth Longer Than Traditional Heating Methods

Although in-floor heating may take a longer time to achieve the desired temperature that you want, once that temperature has been reached the heated floors will retain that warmth for a longer time than other heating methods. This warmth can then last into peak hours saving you money and helping the environment on reduced power.

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.

Gibbon Heating & Air Conditioning has been serving Saskatoon and surrounding areas for over 40 Years, a "Total Service" company with trained technicians who are able to provide customers with solutions to all your heating and cooling needs. 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.

Gibbon Heating & Air Conditioning can help you decide with the expert knowledge of heating and cooling professionals. Contact Gibbon to explore your thermostat options today.

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.
