This is one of the most important posts we’ll make this year—the reminder to all our customers and customers-to-be to sign up for heating maintenance for their central heater this fall. Routine maintenance inspections and tune-ups are an essential service to ensure the best performance from a heating system over the winter. 

This “best” performance doesn’t just mean getting an edge in heating quality. It can be the difference between a heater that works each day it’s needed and one that must be replaced years early. It’s the difference between a trouble-free winter with a heater and a system that needs heater repair in Parksville, BC—possibly more than once!

This May Be the Fall When You Finally Get a Tankless Water Heater

October 5th, 2020
tankless-water-heater

You’ve been thinking about it. We know you have, because you got to this blog post and you are reading these words right now. But is this the moment? Is this when you make the switch you’ve planned on for years: getting rid of that old standard storage tank water heater and replacing it with a tankless water heater?

A good question, and we can help with the answer. But to get a full professional answer about installing a tankless water heater in Courtenay, BC, you’ll need to make an appointment with our experts. We can analyze your current situation and see what the best way forward is.

Is Your Current Water Heater Truly Finished?

Before you choose to have a new water heater of any type installed, you need to be certain you aren’t throwing away the current water heater too early. Most storage water heaters can last for more than 15 years, although past 20 years is pushing it—that’s a good time for a replacement.

If your current water heater is struggling to deliver the expected volume of hot water, is costing more than it once did to operate, or is starting to leak or corrode, then it’s also time to have it replaced. Our technicians can help find out if repairs can keep it going, but they’ll also tell you when repairs are throwing money away that you could spend on a new system.

What About the Tankless Water Heater Appeals to You?

We’re not trying to drive you away from a tankless water heater, not at all! In fact, there are probably some benefits to using a tankless system that you don’t know about. So, think about why you’re eager to have this type of water heater in your home. Is it …

  • The unlimited hot water supply? This is a huge one for people—a tankless hot water heater can’t run out of its supply of hot water because it doesn’t have one. It always heats up more. The system can be overwhelmed if multiple taps are on at one time, however, so you need to know how your household uses water.
  • The energy savings? A tankless water heater is more expensive to purchase than a storage tank water heater, but the amount of money it saves in energy reduction will pay you back in a few years.
  • The small size? Say goodbye to that space-consuming tank—tankless water heaters can be small enough to be installed onto a wall.
  • The longevity? With less energy consumed and work done, a tankless water heater ages slower than a standard water heater. You’ll have many more years to enjoy those energy savings and other benefits.

Let the Professionals Guide You

You must have professionals install a water heater of any kind in your house, so have them on the job early to help you make the right choice. Our water heater pros can help you find the ideal new water heater and size it properly so it delivers the results you expect.

We always urge our customers to move quickly when they think they need AC services. Delaying on important repair and replacement jobs can make the situation worse. But right now we have a special reason to recommend customers calling as soon as possible for new air conditioning equipment: a national HVAC equipment shortage.  

Many contractors are experiencing backlogs of orders on air conditioning systems because of COVID-18-related manufacturer shutdowns. Some customers are waiting up to four weeks to receive new air conditioners. We currently have a full inventory, but this is peak season for new AC installations, so please call us to schedule your service as early as you can.

Don’t delay—Temprite Climate Solutions wants to help you during this peak season! For a job done right, call Temprite!

We hope that you scheduled your air conditioning tune-up in Parksville, BC in spring or early summer. This is an essential job to ensure you enjoy a summer without an AC that gives you grief with repairs, poor performance, or skyrocketing bills.

Now it’s almost fall, and that means we’re turning away from air conditioning and looking at heating. Heating maintenance, that is. It’s not cold yet, but there’s no better time to have your heater inspected and tuned-up than during a time when you don’t need to run it. You’ll be glad you got maintenance out of the way early so you’re ready when the first cold day of fall strikes.

An air conditioning system that’s making more noise than it used to, or is making unusual noises it hasn’t before, is a reason for concern. It may not mean that it’s time for a new AC installation in Courtenay, BC to replace the air conditioner, but it often indicates a need for repairs from expert technicians.

In this post, we’ll examine some of those out-of-the-ordinary sounds that might come from your air conditioner and what they mean. When in doubt, go straight to calling for professional repairs rather than tinker with the AC yourself. Making an accurate diagnosis of air conditioning problems is something only trained technicians can do. Amateur work risks getting the problem wrong, and therefore getting the “repair” wrong.

Want Better Ventilation in Your Home Year-Round? Here’s One Solution

May 18th, 2020

Proper ventilation is essential for having the best indoor air quality for a home. People tend to believe that air pollution is a problem that only exists outside—but this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Numerous airborne contaminants come from inside a house: cooking and cleaning products, cosmetics, pressed wood, paint and varnish, hobby tools, vehicles in an attached garage, and more. The best way to clean out a concentration of chemicals, smoke, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and plain ol’ dust is to open up the house to circulate a fresh breeze.

We can already anticipate your objection: “How can I do that during times when it’s extremely hot or cold outside?” This is the number one problem. Maintaining energy efficiency in a home requires a sealed home. This is why so many houses today are built tightly with heavy insulation. And its also why so many contaminants get trapped indoors.

Watch for Late-Season Furnace Repair Warnings

April 6th, 2020

We won’t truly enjoy warmer spring weather for at least another month, and even then the temperature swings can be shaky. The short of it is you need to have your furnace working well through the spring. Now is not the time to ignore troubles with your furnace just because you might be able to “wait it out.”

There are several important reasons to always act fast on furnace repairs, but the top one is that a natural gas furnace (which is what you probably have in your home) may turn hazardous if repair needs are ignored. Gas furnaces aren’t an inherently dangerous type of heating system, but negligence raises the chance of safety hazards.
