Attic Insulation 101

Did you know that by simply upgrading or adding insulation to your attic, you could see up to a 25% reduction in your family’s energy expenses? While turning down the heat or AC when you’re not at home during the day is a great way to reduce heating and cooling costs year-round, having a well-insulated home has actually been proven to be the most cost-effective way to save energy and money in the long-run. This is because with proper attic insulation, home owners can ensure that any gaps and cracks are covered, preventing the heat and/or AC from escaping their home.

The Different Types of Attic Insulation

Today, there are various types of attic insulation available in the market including blanket insulation, blown-in or loose-fill insulation, and spray foam insulation. All ideal for use in the attic, each type is associated with its own benefits, including:

Blanket Insulation

Most commonly used for insulation of large building envelopes blanket insulation is suitable for application in the attic. Made from fiberglass, rock wool or natural fibres, blanket insulation is typically installed along the walls of attics, working to block the transfer of heat through walls and are a great way to cover large sections of space you need insulated.

Blown-in or Loose-fill Insulation

Ideal for filling cavities, attics, and other hard-to-reach places, blown-in and loose-fill insulation is made from fiberglass and/or cellulose (recycled paper). The thick layer of insulation is meticulously sprayed in your attic, creating a seamless coat of insulation which covers the floor, walls and all other nooks and crannies that blanket insulation may miss.

Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation is a unique insulation created by a chemical reaction of two composite materials combining and expanding once dispensed. As one of the most popular & highly requested methods to use for attic insulation today, spray foam insulation gives your attic additional protection against infestations and water damage by naturally sealing up any cracks, holes or crevices that blanket insulation and blown-in or loose-fill insulation may miss. Typically used for attic and wall insulation, spray foam insulation helps seal up cavities, provides tight air sealing in your home, and is also rodent and water resistant for added protection.

Get Rid of Obstructions

Check to make sure that the outdoor unit is not blocked by any large objects such as, plants, or even small debris that may have accumulated over a period of time. Make sure all objects are at least a foot away from your Lennox AC unit to avoid any further damage. The indoor AC units should also be free from any possible obstruction in order for it to run efficiently.

Program the Thermostat

You should raise the temperature slightly during times when you aren’t at home whereas you can turn the temperature down during the night or when you return. This can help reduce any unnecessary strain on your AC unit and it also helps you save on utility costs. It is universally approved that the most environmentally friendly and most energy-efficient temperature is 25.5 degrees celsius.

Spring Tips for Fresher Air at Home

Spring cleaning is a tradition for clearing out the clutter that accumulated over the Winter, and ushering in fresh new life as the cold weather fades away. One part of the home that many people tend to forget during Spring cleaning is their HVAC systems. These systems help to maintain suitable temperatures indoors and preserve a cozy atmosphere year-round. Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to clean their furnace or air conditioner, so scheduling a maintenance check is a better option. A trained technician can not only clean your HVAC system, but they can also optimize its performance, or determine if a new high efficiency furnace or AC is necessary.

Right now you can get HUGE energy rebates by upgrading to a Lennox HVAC system in the Markham area. There are also other ways to take advantage of these rebates, such as well as improving cooling and insulation by maximizing features such as windows and doors. Here’s how you can Spring clean your home for optimal heating and cooling.

Schedule an HVAC Maintenance Check or Upgrade

With the weather improving, you can give your furnace a break from heating up your home. Although the weather is getting nicer, it’s never to early to start thinking about next winter. If you noticed that your energy bills kept increasing over the winter, it’s probably time to start looking into replacing your furnace for a more energy efficient one. Upgrading to a high efficiency furnace, such as one of Lennox’s models, not only will you save on monthly energy, but right now you can also get money back with energy rebates. So not only are you saving money, you’re earning some back too!

Likewise, as it’s not quite hot enough to turn on the AC, you can enjoy the cool Spring breeze get your AC checked out for efficiency as well. To help you properly decide on an HVAC upgrade, it helps to schedule a maintenance check with your HVAC technician. During the maintenance check, they will check your air conditioning unit to make sure that it is still working in optimal condition. This includes things like replacing the filters to keep away allergens and pollutants outside so they won’t affect the quality of air you and your family breathes. A maintenance check will show you how your HVAC’s performance can be optimized to help you save on energy bills. On the other hand, if the maintenance check shows that your HVAC is now outdated and unable to efficiently regulate temperatures indoors, and your energy bills keep increasing, you will need an upgrade.

A new, high efficiency and energy-saving HVAC may sound costly at first, but with an energy efficient model, a dealer that will get you a great deal on your HVAC system, and cash rebates, in the long run you’ll be saving a lot more money. Not only will your family be thanking you, your bank account will too.

Maximize Your Home’s Fixtures

Aside from your HVAC system, there are some other ways you can optimize your Markham home to become more energy efficient. To start, inspect your doors and windows. Check if these need caulking, as the sealant helps in keeping out heat and humidity in the summer, and cold drafts in the winter. By maintaining a cool temperature indoors, you won’t have to blast the AC and rack up electric bills in the process to stay comfortable at home.

You should also check for holes in your windows or screen doors and fix these to keep the cool air in your home and avoid heat from entering as the days warm up. On cooler days, think twice before turning on your air conditioner. Instead, naturally cool your home by opening doors and windows to let fresh air flow in and keep you comfortable. All these will help you save on energy, and in turn energy bills.

3 Reasons to Start Spring Cleaning with HVAC

Spring is right around the corner in Markham, and it’s a good time to start thinking about spring cleaning. As the seasons change and you usher in growth and new life, one fixture in your home works year-round and could use either an upgrade or maintenance check: your HVAC system.

To check whether you need an HVAC upgrade (including rebates) or see if its performance can be optimized, HVAC maintenance for your furnace and AC should be the first item on your home’s entry to spring checklist. Here, we’ll learn why your HVAC should have top priority.

Prevent Allergens from Spreading

Your HVAC system does not just work to keep your house cool and relaxing in the summer, and warm and cozy in the winter. By providing good ventilation and enabling air to properly circulate, it also helps in filtering airborne allergens that may cause health issues. As your HVAC system works over the years, its air filter accumulates mold, dust, pet dander and other airborne allergens that can slip out over time and affect the quality of air your family breathes.

An HVAC upgrade or maintenance check will point these out to you, and depending on the age and effectiveness of your current HVAC system, you can opt for a cost and energy-saving upgrade or you may be able to address these issues with HVAC maintenance. Both are good ways to spring clean your home’s heating and cooling system, and provide your family clean and fresh air.

Avoid Large Emergency Costs

If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it, right? That’s how a lot of us think, and unfortunately, these decisions aren’t always our brightest moments. Your Lennox HVAC system is designed to last a long time, but as with all machines, it gradually wears out throughout the years with frequent use. An HVAC system works year-round, often without rest to make your home comfortable as the seasons change. Over time, performance issues arise, newer and more efficient models are made, and your HVAC system finally has to be retired. Waiting for it to finally break down before getting a replacement isn’t the smartest move; often this results in large emergency expenses you’re not prepared for. It turns out to be more expensive, and the surprise takes a large toll on your household budget.

Spring signals a fresh start, and it’s a great time to clean up and make fresh changes.

If you have been noticing increases in your energy bills but find the temperatures in your home still not optimal, it’s a good time to schedule an HVAC maintenance appointment to have a technician optimize your system’s performance. If your HVAC system is older and its model has long been outdated, it’s a good time to weigh the costs of an energy-saving upgrade to a new system.  Both HVAC tasks will guarantee your family not only continued comfort at home, but also savings on energy costs and manageable electric bills.

Stay Cozy as the Seasons Change

When your home’s HVAC system is professionally Spring cleaned through upgrades or maintenance, you can breathe easy knowing that it will perform well throughout the year. An energy-efficient and well-maintained HVAC system will keep your home at its coolest when the summer heat takes over, and at its warmest and coziest starting when the crisp fall air arrives, all through the freezing, winter cold.

Take advantage of huge energy rebates and save money by upgrading to a new Lennox AC/furnace with Constant Home Comfort. Not sure if you need an upgrade? Schedule a maintenance check. Call us at 1-888-829-1875  for a free quote today!

As temperatures slowly climb out of the negatives in Toronto, but still remain cool, there could be lesser need for both heating and cooling.

Save Energy this Spring

There are some simple ways you can save on energy during the Spring. Before you turn on the air conditioning, you can try closing the drapes or opening the windows. On cooler Spring days, you can open the windows and let your home cool naturally. You can also close the drapes to reduce the amount of heat that the sunlight brings into your home. These will keep your home comfortable enough without having to turn up the thermostat or turn on the AC.

It also helps to run a dehumidifier to remove moisture from the air and regulate the temperature so that stays perfectly warm and cozy. If you find that you need to cool down your home just a bit, but going back to using the AC will instantly make your house too cold, a ceiling fan is a good alternative. You can install fans in areas where you spend the most time, keeping these spaces cool. When taking a shower, you can run the exhaust ventilation to usher moist and warm air out of your home, keeping it cool.

When the warmer weather hits the outdoors become a lot more inviting. If you’re starting to venture outdoors again, it would be a good time to cooking on your grill rather than opting for the oven. The oven’s heat could warm up your house a little too much, causing your AC to need to work harder to regulate the temperature in your home, and increasing your monthly energy expenses.

Stay Comfortable throughout the Seasons

As the temperatures climb and the days become warmer, it’s a good time to think about what your house needs, and look into scheduling some necessary upgrades, such as a new, energy-efficient HVAC system. Plus, when you get a new HVAC system installed, you can earn thousands of dollars in rebates. For example, if you noticed that your furnace did not keep your house as warm as it did in past years, that could mean it’s time to replace it. Lennox has some high quality furnaces that will not only save you on monthly utility bills, but will get you some money back with rebates as well.

You can start your home’s HVAC upgrade with a routine maintenance check. Since it’s the end of furnace season, it’s a good time to look back at your energy bills over the winter to get an idea of how well your furnace performed. If you notice that your bills kept increasing, or are significantly more expensive from previous years, it’s time to start thinking about replacing your furnace. You can also look into upgrading insulation and sealing air leaks. This will aid in preventing heat from entering your home as warm spring and summer days roll around, helping you save on AC expenses. By the time the next cold days come, good insulation and sealed air leaks will also prevent heat loss, keeping you warm and comfortable.
