Consumer Tips on Choosing a Heating and Air Conditioning Contractor

While homeowners choose to undertake many kinds of home renovations,

installation and/or repair of heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration

equipment is usually considered an exceptional measure. Yet the heating and

cooling system in any building is a critical factor in occupant comfort and quality

of life. The purchase of a furnace, air conditioner or ventilation system is a major

investment and deserves careful consideration.

Most provinces require the hiring of a licensed or qualified HVACR tradesperson

to perform the work because of the safety concerns and consequences involved.

However, homeowners frequently do not distinguish among contractors on

anything other than price. Consumers should be aware that the lowest price is

not always the best value

How HomeStars and TrustedPros are trying to sniff out false reviews

Both firms have introduced new systems to reduce the number of fake reviews on their sites


November 2, 2015
by John Bleasby


HomeStars and TrustedPros, two of the leading contractor review websites in Canada, post hundreds of customer reviews each week and boast massive information databases. It’s a growing on-line landscape riddled with challenges, particularly when it comes to review verification.

“It’s on the internet, so it must be true”
It’s important to understand how the HomeStars’ and TrustedPros’ review verification systems works, and how these sites can in fact help your business from being victimized by false reviews.  After all, false reviews undermine credibility, which is bad for everyone: consumers, businesses and the review sites themselves.

According to the Canadian Farmers' Almanac, the winter of

Can I be the first to say…. yuk….!

Let’s Just Make sure your furnace is ready…

According to the Canadian Farmers’ Almanac, the winter of 2015–2016 is looking like a repeat of last winter, at least in terms of temperatures with unseasonably cold conditions over Newfoundland, Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Quebec, and Ontario.  Very cold to downright frigid temperatures are once again on tap for Quebec and the Maritime Provinces.

Much of central Canada will see near-normal temperatures. This includes western Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta. In these areas, Ms. Nature will mix intervals of unseasonably mild temperatures with periodic shots of bitter cold; average it all out and it comes out, average!

Farther west, over British Columbia, milder than normal temperatures are again expected. The Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut are forecast to receive near-normal winter temperatures.

Air conditioning use during summer months can account for an extra $200 in energy costs for a typical homeowner with central air conditioning, but this can be minimized with a few simple tips.

  • Turn your A/C up a few degrees – Increase the temperature of your air conditioner by two degrees and save up to 10 percent on air conditioning energy costs.
  • Install programmable thermostat – Use a programmable thermostat to set the temperature when you are not home and when you are sleeping or away.
  • Replace out-dated equipment - You can get up to $650 through the saveONenergy HEATING & COOLING INCENTIVE program. Install an ENERGY STAR® central air conditioning system and receive up to $400, and $250 for installing a high efficiency furnace with ECM motor.
  • Install a fan – Install ceiling fans and set the air conditioner at a higher temperature without noticing a difference. ENERGY STAR® certified ceiling fans are about 50 percent more energy efficient than conventional fan/light combinations.
  • Keep windows and doors closed when the air conditioner is on – Window coverings should also be closed during the day to keep the summer sun and heat out.
  • Fire up the grill – Outdoor grilling means you don't have to turn on your oven or stovetop. With these appliances off, your kitchen stays cooler, and your refrigerator and air conditioner do not have to work as hard, saving you even more.

"Keeping our homes and businesses cool during the summer months requires a lot of energy and represents the highest costs for many customers during the year," said Terry Young, Vice-President of Conservation and Corporate Relations. "Upgrading your air conditioner and furnace through the saveONenergy Heating and Cooling Incentive Program could save homeowners up to $325 a year in energy costs alone."
