In this Saskatoon furnace article,  Jeff Bolton, owner of JOB, highlights how important it is to be aware of the threat of carbon monoxide and he shares some winter safety tips for your home. 

Winter Safety Tips For Your Home From JOB Heating & Air 

What does that do and why does it matter?

I was recently in two Saskatoon residences with gas inspections to investigate the source of carbon monoxide in the homes. Thank heavens both homeowners had carbon monoxide detectors,  that in my opinion, saved their lives. Both days I went home and checked my CO detector.

When was the last time that you checked your CO Detector?

Go do it now then come back and finish reading…
So how this works is usually the fire department or Sask Energy get a call,  then they visit the home with their carbon monoxide meters to assess the level and then, if reading show and issue they red tag the furnace unit and shut off the gas. The Red Tag program provides a consistent means for gas utilities, propane distributors, gas contractors or others deemed appropriate by the chief gas inspector to report unresolved gas-related deficiencies or identify reoccurring design flaws. The issuing of red tags is only done by a licensed gasfitter.

What to do when you have a red tag.


The homeowner should then call us to come to correct the problem. We will go through the furnace and water heater with a fine-tooth comb to attempt to find the source of the carbon monoxide.

Sometimes it is a crack in a heat exchanger, however, sometimes the furnace and water heater are working exactly as they should. It is then incumbent upon us to investigate why the carbon monoxide is present in the home. In these locations we often find that the homes are drawn into negative pressure, what that means is that the homes are exhausting more air than fresh air coming into the home. As you may remember from science class,  areas of high pressure always go to areas of low pressure. So what happens is the high pressure outside finds a way into the area of low pressure (inside the home) through any possible route. If the doors and windows are closed then the only other hole in the home is the chimney. Air begins to flow down the chimney to replace the air that’s being exhausted out of the home. So why is that an issue? This becomes a problem when the furnace or water heater begins to fire and there is no draft up the chimney. This then results in the products of combustion (carbon monoxide) being vented into the home.


What can homeowners do to prevent this from happening? 


There are items in your home to prevent this from happening. In most cases, the insulated vent that runs from the outside of your home into the furnace room brings what we call combustion air. The combustion air helps to regulate the pressure of your home preventing your home from getting into a negative air pressure situation. This is also the air that is used when the furnace or water heater are firing up and sometimes this air supply can become blocked. On occasion, we have found that homeowners will purposely block the intake because they don’t like the cold air coming in.

I need to stress how important this is and that by blocking this you are putting yourself and your family at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. So please don’t block this or if you have, open it up immediately.

Another more common problem is that the air intakes themselves become blocked. These intakes appear from the outside like exhaust vents but when you bend over and look up inside them they are in fact air intakes with a screen that needs to be clear of all debris. A good rule of thumb is to walk around the perimeter of your home and look for these vent/intake hoods. Look up inside them and clean them up. This is a simple 10-minute job and this will help to protect you from carbon monoxide poisoning. 

Do your intakes look like this? 


  • Go outside today walk around your home and clean these intakes.
  • Check your carbon monoxide detectors
  • Check your smoke alarms. 
These 2 devices save lives every day you just don’t hear about it. If you don’t have a smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detector buy them and put them in your home today. I promise you they save lives.

Then have us come out and do a furnace tune-up. We test the furnace and ensure it is functioning as it should be, in addition, we clean the parts of the furnace that you cannot.

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.

What Are You Paying to Get Your Ducts Cleaned?

Some Duct Cleaning companies try to lure you in with the promise of a cheap clean $169.99 or lower…and that’s exactly what you’ll get…a CHEAP service, not an inexpensive one!

A proper, full furnace and duct cleaning should be in the range of $300.00 to $1000.00 and sometimes above. Pricing should be based on the size of the home or business, how many furnaces you have, and any additional options you may choose. Some companies will charge by the vent or by the hour. Make sure to ask as many questions as you can when deciding on a duct cleaning company.

There are vast differences in pricing from company to company but Caliber provides up front pricing, no hidden fees. We provide “all inclusive” pricing based on the square footage and type of home or business you have. We clean all supply air ducts (hot), return air ducts (cold), main plenum trunks, reusable furnace filters, the furnace blower and heat coils, and the a-coil if you have air conditioning. We don’t count your vents and raise the price on what you expected to pay, or charge you for things that need to be done in order to complete a proper clean (ie: cutting and patching holes in the trunks to access the dirt and debris). Some companies will charge extra to clean the furnace, the a-coil, or the filter. We believe that a proper duct cleaning should include those items in the price otherwise the clean is pointless in most cases. Unless you are having your furnace replaced with a new one in the near future, not cleaning those items will only pass all the dirt and dust collected in those areas back through the ducting once the furnace is turned back on. Therefore making the “clean” ducts a pointless expense you just paid for.

  • We don’t pressure our clients to purchase additional options they don’t understand or even need. Our team will explain the options available and inspect your home to let you know what additional options would be best suited for you. After that, it’s up to you!




*Remember…if it’s too good to be true…it probably is! Always look at the fine print when seeing a deal for under $300.00 unless you live in something below 1000 sq ft. If the company you have called can’t provide honest answers to their pricing and procedures then move on to the next.
