When the temperature begins to rise, Winnipeg residents almost instinctively turn to their air-conditioners for relief. While air-con does provide quick comfort, it also causes energy bills to skyrocket. Air-con isn’t cheap, and many of us push it to the limits or use it inefficiently when Winnipeg’s in peak heat season.
Even great heating and cooling appliances in your home need regular inspections, maintenance from time to time. But eventually, all units need replacements. You don’t want your air-con unit malfunctioning in the middle of summer, or heater blowing in winter, do you?
Below, we’ll inform you about some of the key warning signs your air conditioning is telling you it may be nearing the end of its life.
Whenever we notice a clog in our drains, we all want the problem to go away quickly and easily. However, more and more of us are questioning the safety of products like Drano and the dangerous chemicals used to make them. Chemical cleaning products may be convenient and readily available, but they have detrimental effects on your health, your plumbing drain pipes, and our environment.
Winnipeggers spend a lot of time in their home, and even more so since the start of the pandemic. Your home is where you’re most comfortable, but a variety of HVAC issues can throw off the temperature regulation in your home.
When your system struggles to maintain a constant temperature, it has the potential to create hot and cold spots in your home, decreasing comfort, and increasing energy bills.
Winnipeg winters are harsh on your home’s heating and cooling systems. The last thing you want is for your air-con system to fail as the weather turns hot. After a long hard winter, your system is particularly susceptible to failure and needs a little TLC to ensure it’s running smoothly and efficiently.

Is it time to upgrade my thermostat? That’s a question you probably haven’t asked, but you should!
Changing a thermostat probably isn’t on your list of life priorities, but it can certainly contribute to some living benefits.

Have you heard the term “rooter service” but don’t know exactly what it is? If so, you’ve come to the right place!
Rooter services get their name from the tasks they perform. A router service clears your clogged drains and sewer systems due to food, hair, grease, or other debris. If you have a clogged drain or plumbing line in your home, you might think about clearing the mess yourself.
