4 Reasons to LOVE Your HVAC System

Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating those we love in our life… those who are always there for us, who comfort and care for us and can make us feel better after a long, hard day. Does this sound like anyone you know? It should! It’s your HVAC system! Here are four reasons why we love our HVAC system, and so should you!

1. Keeps us comfortable
After this last cold snap, we are so thankful we could rely on our furnace to keep us warm and cozy in our home. Let’s not forget our AC and how cool and well-rested we are during a heat wave. A comfortable temperature in our home gives us a more productive and pleasant environment to live in.

2. Makes us more attractive
This is another shout-out to our beloved AC system for preventing us from sweating profusely and keeping Dan smelling fresh on those hot summer days. And during the winter it allows us to peel off those layers when we come inside so Dan no longer looks like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

3. Saves our limbs… and our life!
We rely on our home to protect us and keep us safe and out of the elements. Without our furnace we would end up with frostbite or hypothermia during the polar vortex we often experience. Our home would no longer ‘spark joy’ as the pipes would freeze and nothing could function. Alternatively, we would encounter severe dehydration and heat stroke during those hot summer days. When we’re in a heat wave, WE no longer function if we can’t stay cool.

4. Keeps us healthy
Our HVAC system reduces the amount of allergens, dust and pollen in our air and improves the overall air quality in our home. Without an air purification system attached to an HVAC system, allergies may be more severe, and sicknesses and germs can linger in the air longer. Our HVAC system provides us with clean, healthy, filtered air helping us breathe easier.

There’s so many more reasons to love your HVAC system, as it works for us day and night. Can you think of anything to be more dedicated to your well-being or more deserving of your love and admiration?! Make sure you return your HVAC system’s love with continued maintenance and annual check ups! And if your HVAC system doesn’t fit this description, give us a call @ 780.919.4916 as we can help with a tune-up… or dare we say a REPLACEMENT!

Happy Valentine’s Day from Ignite where your comfort is our concern!

Choosing an HVAC contractor and Checking References

How should you begin the process of selecting a contractor?

For starters, ask your friends and associates for recommendations. Word of mouth is one of the most important forms of advertising for small businesses, we have been very thankful to build our business primarily through word of mouth referrals. Contractors are likely to work harder for you if they know that you have a connection to an existing network with whom they are associated.

Once you’ve begun interviewing contractors, we would suggest that you request and check multiple references. Here are some useful questions to ask references:

1) Can they confirm that they hired the contractor in question?

2) Were they happy with the contractor’s work?

3) Did the contractor finish the project on time and on budget?

4) Would they have any hesitation recommending this contractor to someone else?

Beware of references who are unwilling to discuss a contractor, or who give a lukewarm reference. People are understandably reluctant to give a blatantly bad reference about someone that they may work with again in the future.
