We are sliding through this summer faster than I would of imagined! I can’t believe back-to-school is just around the corner. Did you know what that means? Busy season is also creeping around the corner….
If you haven’t had your furnace cleaned yet this year, you should give our office a call to set that up before the rush. By having your furnace maintained regularly, you reduce the chance of your furnace malfunctioning during the heating season.
No one wants to be left in the cold! Call us for preventative maintenance so you can enjoy the crisp autumn air outside, not in!
We couldn’t be more excited for our newest Red Seal Oil Heating Technician!
Justin came to us as a co-op student from Lockview High School. Mechanically inclined, he caught on to the trade very quickly, impressing us with his determination to jump right in and get his hands dirty – literally! Straight out of high school, he came on to work full time as an apprentice.
In May he had enough hours to go back to NSCC to complete his final two blocks, which enabled him to write for his Red Seal. This picture is a snippet of our letter from NS Apprenticeship explaining his successful completion of the program!
We are proud to be a part of your journey Justin and excited that you are a part of ours! Congrats!
Just a reminder: Our office is closed on Monday May 22, 2017 for Victoria Day. Our after hours service is always available for emergency service though!
Hope everyone enjoys their weekend with lots of food, friends and sunshine!
Have you ever wondered how you heat your home?
Maybe you know the difference between a furnace and a boiler -maybe you don’t!
Furnaces aka “Central Heat”
Furnaces work by blowing warm air around your home through duct work, entering the room through grills or registers. It is preferred by homeowners like to feel the heat as soon as they crank up their thermostat. A fan distributes the warm air though the duct work of the home.
Boilers aka “Radiant Heating”
Boilers work by carrying hot water throughout closed loops throughout the homes. These loops may be exposed through radiators or contained within the floor (better known as “infloor” heating.) These systems are more complex in that they rely on circulators and zone valves to distribute the heat -enabling a homeowner to control the temperatures in different areas of the home.
Boilers also have the ability to provide customers with their domestic hot water. This added benefit can be cost & energy efficient for the homeowner.
