Why You Should Maintenance Your Furnace For Fall

Furnace Maintenance

It is time to maintenance your furnace for fall. We know… The dreaded words.  Double checking everything is up to date and the safest that it can be can save you big money. Many people don’t think about furnace systems like this, but preseason furnace inspections are just like car tune-ups; you need to stay on top of them to avoid potential unnecessary costs in the future. Although you may not need your furnace in September(but with Alberta weather… we never know), an inspected furnace means that there is less chance that you will find critical issues with your furnace when you are relying on it! 

 

Why furnace maintenance Is Important?

Proper maintenance and inspections on your furnace is pivotal to ensuring that your home is all set to fight off even the worst of the Alberta winter temperatures. Luckily, Ignite Heating has got you covered! Our experts provide comprehensive maintenance and inspection services in Sherwood Park and the surrounding areas! 

 

Believe it or not, there are many benefits to having your furnace serviced in the fall! A furnace that is maintained and regularly serviced is able to perform faster and use less effort on the machine. This means that your furnace will not be using as much energy to function properly, which can impact your monthly energy bill(in the good kind of way). This furnace efficiency also improves overall comfort in the home by not leaving any rooms cool. 

 

With regular maintenance, clients also are able to have additional comfort knowing that there is far less of a risk of a breakdown. Did you know that many seasonal furnace breakdowns can be traced back to air flow or component health issues? These breaks can be frustrating and stressful, but can be addressed and solved during inspection! 

 

Having frequent inspections can also add a longer service time to your furnace! Regular maintenance can help preserve your furnace while still being a safe option.

How To Find Your Optimal Sleep Temperature

 

How To Find Your Optimal Sleep Temperature

 

There’s nothing worse than struggling to fall asleep or having a restless night. The next day you feel exhausted and it’s much harder to get anything done. If you struggle to fall asleep at night, the temperature of your room could be making it more difficult. When trying to fall asleep, no one wants to be freezing cold or hot and sweaty. Everyone has their own optimal sleep temperature. Figuring out what yours is will positively impact your sleep.

Age does not typically have an impact on the ideal sleep temperature. However, babies generally prefer slightly warmer temperatures to sleep. If your optimal sleep temperature is quite cool, consider raising it slightly if you have a baby in the home. 

A common preferred sleep temperature is around 18 degrees Celsius. However, this is not the case for everyone. To find your optimal sleeping temperature, try adjusting the temperature slightly each night and monitor how you sleep. To conduct the most accurate temperature tests, try not to change any other factors.

How to know if you’ve found your optimal sleep temperature.

Depending on your internal thermostat, your optimal sleep temperature may be different from others. To recognize if you have found the right temperature for you, look for signs that your body responds well. This includes falling asleep faster, sleeping throughout the night, and feeling well rested the next day. An improved sleeping pattern and ability to fall asleep easily will indicate that you have found your ideal sleeping temperature.

How to maintain that temperature every night.

Once you have found your optimal sleep temperature, you will want to maintain it every night. Installing a smart thermostat is a great way to maintain your sleeping pattern. It allows you to easily adjust the temperature in your home to achieve your optimal sleep temperature. You can also program your thermostat to automatically set your ideal temperature at a certain hour. Have the Ignite team install the thermostat that best suits your needs. With options including wifi and voice activated remote thermostats and basic user-friendly non-programmable options, we have something for everyone.

If you like it cool when you sleep, you may not be able to achieve your optimal sleeping temperature in the summer months. To maintain your optimal sleep temperature year round, consider investing in an air conditioner to keep your home cool on hot summer nights. The Ignite team can install a high efficiency AC unit to keep your house cool. We will plan before installing the AC to ensure the unit is properly sized for your house and will keep each room cool. This will allow the entire family to maintain an optimal sleeping temperature. 

Contact your local Ignite team to install an AC or thermostat to help you maintain your optimal sleep temperature every night.

5 Tips and Tricks For Running Your A/C Unit

A/C unit maintenance tips

Properly maintaining your AC will allow it to last longer and work more efficiently, protecting your investment.

Getting an air conditioning unit is an investment. Properly maintaining your AC will allow it to last longer and work more efficiently, protecting your investment. We understand that not everyone is an HVAC technician, however, we all deserve to know how to get the most out of our air conditioners.

Here are 5 Tips and Tricks For Running Your A/C Unit.

1. Clear the area around your outdoor unit

When you have the Ignite team install air conditioning in your house you will notice a shiny new unit outside. This is the condenser, and it needs room to breathe to operate correctly. Make sure that the area around the condenser is well maintained year-round. Cutting the grass, trimming the shrubs, and other seasonal maintenance surrounding the unit is necessary for optimal AC performance. This will also allow easy access for the Ignite technician who performs the annual tune up.

 2. Change air filters

 Like your furnace, AC units have air filters to maintain good indoor air quality. These filters keep debris out of your home and also contribute to the air conditioning unit’s performance. If the filter has a lot of dust and debris build up, it will make it difficult for cold air to be properly distributed and may cause your AC to be overworked. To maintain the AC’s efficiency and keep the air in your home clean, check and replace your air filter monthly.  

 3. Annual tune ups

 Scheduling annual tune ups are necessary to ensure your air conditioner is in good condition and allows any potential issues to be recognized early. Catching potential problems before they become significant will allow the technician to take care of the issue early, which will lessen the chance of failure later on. Schedule your annual tune up with Ignite to or join our AC Comfort Club today.

 4. Consider the location of your thermostats

 Heat generating appliances like lamps and televisions can cause the thermostat to misread the actual temperature in the home if they are too close. This will cause your thermostat to think your home is warmer than it is, and your AC will work harder to cool your home more than is actually needed. The location of your thermostat is important for accurate reading and maintaining a desired temperature in your home. Keep your thermostat away from hot areas in your home where there may be sun shining in or appliances that emit significant heat.

5. Update older models

If you have an older AC unit, update it with a new Napoleon unit installed by Ignite technicians. Older models use more energy which can cause your monthly utility bills to be higher. Replacing these with new, high efficiency air conditioners will save you money over time and increase cooling efficiency.

 

Now that you know the Top 5 Tips and Tricks For Running Your A/C Unit and how to have it last a long time, use these tips and tricks. Contact us in Edmonton and Sherwood Park for all your AC installation and maintenance needs.

How To Prepare Your Home For A Comfortable Summer

Summer HVAC tips

Use these tips to prepare your home for the Edmonton summer heat.

The weather is starting to warm up after a long, cold winter and we need to prepare for the heat. There is nothing quite as uncomfortable as the sticky, sweaty feeling of a house that’s too hot. Are you’re tired of being unable to cook inside your house? Or attempting to escape the heat by spending the whole summer in the basement? Follow these tips to prepare your home for a more comfortable summer. 

Install a New Air Conditioning Unit

The number one way to make your house more comfortable this summer is to have Ignite Heating and AC install a Napoleon air conditioning unit for you. We work with you to ensure the AC unit is properly sized for your house and will keep your whole house cool. An AC unit will keep you, your family, and your pets comfortable throughout the summer. Making your home an escape from the heat and a place of comfort.

If you already have an AC unit, it may be time for an upgrade. Replacing your old unit will result in increased efficiency, decreased repair costs, and reliability that it will not fail on you during the hot summer months. Air conditioners also add to the resale value of your home. Having a high efficiency AC unit in your home will increase your homes value and appeal to buyers when it’s time to sell.  

Install a Smart Thermostat

Smart thermostats allow you to adjust the temperature in your home from any location. With these easy-to-use thermostats you can save on energy bills by keeping the temperature higher in your home while you are away. Then, before you get home you can turn on the AC so that you walk into a cool, comfortable home. Smart thermostats allow you to maximize comfort and energy efficiency all summer long. Contact Ignite to have a smart thermostat installed in your home.

Open and Close Doors and Windows Wisely

You may remember your parents yelling at you to close the windows and shut the blinds when the sun is shining, and they were right. If you have an AC unit running, making sure the doors and windows are closed during the day will keep the cold air in and the heat out. If you don’t have an AC unit, closing doors and windows will keep the heat out during the day. Then, opening doors and windows later will let the cold air in at night. Using these techniques is a simple and effective way to keep your house cool in the summer. 

Change the HVAC Air Filter

Your HVAC air filter should be changed every 30 days in the summer. This ensures that the air circulating through your home is clean and not full of dust and debris. There is more dust and dirt flowing through the air than normal during the summer months so it’s important to keep an eye on the filter to avoid buildup.

Beating the heat in the summer can be challenging, but your home should always be where you feel the most comfortable. Use these tips to prepare your home for the heat and have the most comfortable summer yet. Our top recommendation is to get a new air conditioning unit installed by Ignite Heating and Air Conditioning professionals.
