I’d like a Tankless Water Heater, but how much will it save compared to a regular water heater?

A standard water heater normally has an efficiency rating around 70% as compared to the 98% efficiency of a Navien Tankless. So for every $100 you spend on standard water heating, you’ll save around $28, not to mention you won’t be paying to heat the tank while you’re away all day!

I’m sick of running out of propane. What will a Natural Gas Line to my BBQ cost me?

Typical installs range from $350 and up, depending on the length of the gas line and size of the BBQ. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sun!

The air in my house is stale and humid- what can I do?

An Air Exchanger or Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) might be just what you need. An Air Exchanger removes stale indoor air, while at the same time replacing it with fresh, oxygenated outdoor air. Be sure your HRV installer is HRAI Certified, like us, so you can sleep like a baby!

I already have an Air Exchanger but I still have issues with humidity in my bathroom, why?

Assuming your HRV system is designed and installed properly, it may be out of “balance”. A balanced HRV is one that brings in the same amount of air from outside as it is exhausting to the outside. It requires special certification and equipment. Every Air Exchanger MUST be balanced by a certified HRAI installer. If it’s not balanced, it can cause more problems than you had before. Be sure your installer has certification by the Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI).

We want to finish our basement. What do we need to do for heating and airflow?

Basement developments require sufficient Return-Air from living spaces such as bedrooms or a den. The bathroom should have sufficient exhaust. And you may need Supply-Air pipes relocated or added before drywalling. 

A room upstairs in my 2 storey home is always cold. Why?

It’s all in the duct design and layout. Air flow is the key to temperature control. A poor duct design or install can result in uneven temperatures throughout your home. 

What is the difference between an HRV and an ERV?

The heat recovery ventilator (HRV) is the proper choice in colder climates where there is humidity during the heating season. The HRV keeps the home supplied with a steady flow of fresh outdoor air. As stale, warm air is expelled, the heat recovery core warms the incoming fresh, colder air before it is distributed throughout the home.

The energy recovery ventilator (ERV) is suitable for warmer climates with high outdoor humidity and in homes where there is no humidity excess during the heating season. 


Do my furnace and air conditioner have to be the same brand to be compatible?

A furnace and air conditioner do NOT need to be the same brand to work together to cool your home. You will usually go through two air conditioners in the lifetime of your furnace. 

How long does a furnace and air conditioner last for?

An air conditioner typically lasts around 15 years, while a furnace normally lasts between 20 and 30 years.
