Coordination with the city for inspection of new heating and cooling systems
Here are some great HVAC tips below
• Keeping the cool air inside is just as important as keeping the warm air outside. Caulking, weather stripping, and adding additional attic insulation will help keep cool air inside during the summer.
• Make sure the air is flowing properly through the vents. Inspect the ductwork for holes or separated joints, and hire a professional to repair them.
• Add insulation around air-conditioning ducts, when they are located in unconditioned spaces, such as attics, crawl spaces and garages; do the same for whole house fans where they open to the exterior or attic.
• Homeowners should check the SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating of their air-conditioning unit. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the unit is and the lower your utility bills will be. Upgrading to a higher SEER rating can save homeowners hundreds of dollars a year on their energy bills.
If the air-conditioning unit needs to be replaced, homeowners should be aware of the U.S. Department of Energy legislation that requires all new, central air-conditioning units manufactured after January 23, 2006, to have a SEER of at least 13.
Consumers may want to consider an energy-efficient model, such as the Coleman Echelon™ 15+ SEER air conditioner. New models are Energy Star® qualified, use environmentally friendly refrigerant and have high-efficiency scroll compressors that enhance reliability and contribute to the extremely quiet operation of the units.
Furnace Cleaning In Edmonton
Dirt is the biggest enemy of your furnace. It can waste fuel and drastically lower efficiency. Dirt affects all three basic components of your furnace, so cleaning is the most important part of regular maintenance. The three parts of the furnace should be cleaned: the filter system, the blower, and the motor.
The furnace filter should be replaced or cleaned at the beginning of the heating season and about once a month during periods of continuous use. To check the filter, take it out and hold it up to the light. If it looks clogged, replace it with a new filter of the same type and size regardless of the length of time it has been used.
Can Your Central AirConditioning System Handle The Summer Heat?
Do you rely on central airconditioning to make the summer's heat and humidity more bearable? If so, now is the time to ensure that your equipment is in tip-top shape. If you fail to maintain it, your cooling system will suffer a steady decline in performance while your energy use and utility bills will increase.
While there are some maintenance jobs that you can do to prolong the life of your equipment and keep it running at peak efficiency, other jobs are best left to the professionals. Some of the simple things that any homeowner can do include:
Filters should be routinely cleaned or replaced. (some are reusable while others must be replaced).
Ensure that the outdoor condensing unit has adequate airflow by checking that the area around the unit is cleared of debris and that foliage is trimmed back at least two feet.
Other maintenance tasks that are best left to a trained technician are as follows:
The evaporator coil should be checked every year and cleaned as necessary – dirt reduces airflow and insulates the coil, reducing the cooling ability of your air conditioner.
Outdoor condenser coils can become dirty as well and should be cleaned.
Aluminum coil fins on evaporator and condenser coils outdoor should be checked and, if necessary, straightened to ensure that airflow is not blocked.
Supply and return air ducts should be checked for leaks. A professional service technician can detect and correct duct leaks that could allow cool air to leak out and hot air to leak in, wasting an enormous amount of energy.
Checking to ensure the proper working pressures in the refrigeration circuit. A qualified service technician will have the tools and experience necessary to determine that your cooling system is operating as it should be.

The service was really good. I had them do my redo the whole heating down the basement and they did it within the time frame and the budget we worked with. Pleasant and professional company. 10/10 would recommend to any new home owner or home builder.
Awesome and friendly customer service, my furnace wasn't working and they sent their on call technician out quickly and he was able to figure out the simple solution to my problem and had it fixed the same day... highly recommended!
