De-Icing with Experts at Oshawa Yard

De-Icing with Experts at Oshawa Yard

Draglam Salt has two locations in Oshawa, but unlike their Oshawa Docks location, the Oshawa Yards salt provider remains open all year long, and provides a variety of products. A notable de-icing product our Oshawa Yards salt provider carries is Landscaper’s Choice Ice Melter.

The Difference between Road Salt and Ice Melter

I recommend you speak to their expert staff at the Oshawa Yards salt provider to determine whether road salt, or Landscaper’s Choice Ice Melter is right for your needs. But here are a few reasons why you might choose to use Landscaper’s Choice:

  • Environmentally friendly. Landscaper’s Choice is Calcium Magnesium Acetate (CMA) rather than salt and has less of an effect on the environment.
  • Less Harmful to Vegetation. When used as directed Landscaper’s Choice is designed to work without harming trees, grass, or other plant life.
  • Won’t corrode metal. Landscaper’s Choice creates a bond between the surface and ice to prevent corrosion, eliminating corrosion – one of the frustrating aspects of using road salt.
  • Safer to use. A less corrosive formula also means that you don’t need protective clothing in order to use it.
  • Easier to use. The formula is designed to resist clumping so it disperses more easily.

When Road Salt is Your Preference

The Oshawa Yard salt provider still specializes in road salt because it combines economy and effectiveness that makes it indispensable for many businesses.

A New HVAC Installation Will Lower Your Home’s Bills

A New HVAC Installation Will Lower Your Home’s Bills

Energy costs in Ontario continue to rise, and many residents are seeking ways to save money where possible. It may seem contradictory to invest in an HVAC system, but this piece of equipment can have positive effects in homes, as well as on energy bills. Air quality in homes can often be lower quality than outside. Factors such as appliances, electric static, and congested airflow can cause colds to linger longer and increase the severity of allergies.

An HVAC system can improve indoor air quality by exchanging, and filtering indoor air for outdoor fresh air. Cost may be initially higher for HVAC installation but the energy savings over time is more cost effective, with heating and cooling being in one unit. Fluctuating seasons can also result in trapped moisture, and if not filtered properly, can cause mold. By investing in HVAC installation the system consistently pulls warm, moist air out and replaces with dry, cool air. Models such as “single zone” require similar heating and cooling vents in rooms that are all regulated by a thermostat. Whereas, “multiple zones” allows each area to have a different temperature regulated with different thermostats.

HVAC installation is a benefit to the comfort and overall value of your home. If you are looking to invest in an HVAC system to improve the comfort of your home, then contact Aire One today! With over 25 years of experience, and trained and licensed technicians, Aire One will ensure your HVAC installation is one that will last!

Make Your Home Cleaner with HVAC Cleaning

Make Your Home Cleaner with HVAC Cleaning

Did you know that on average 25 to 40 percent of energy used for heating and cooling is wasted? The cause of this waste is built up from dust and contaminants that cause heating and cooling systems to work harder – often shortening the lifespan of the system. When dander, dust, and chemicals are pulled into an HVAC system they are re-circulated 5-7 times per day, on average. A contaminated HVAC system doesn’t necessarily mean unhealthy air, it just means that inhabitants are exposed to “dirty” air, which can cause problems for people with respiratory conditions.

When an HVAC system is clean, home owners can breathe clean air and their system works more efficiently, resulting in reduced energy use and improved cost effectiveness. Having an HVAC cleaning is suggested for every two to five years and having a professional come in to assess your system will help inform you of the condition of your HVAC system. Additionally, an HVAC inspector will assess the cleanliness and structural integrity of your system and complete a cleaning, if required.

Having an HVAC cleaning completed by Aire One’s licensed and professional contractors will ensure your system runs efficiently. Aire One also provides a wide choice of solutions to help clean and purify your air quality to the level you require. Whether you require an HVAC cleaning or equipment such as air cleaners, humidifiers, or ventilators; Aire One is the local expert you can count on.

Get Your HVAC Repairs To Be Ready For Summer

The summer weather brings days spent in the glorious sun, but is also brings stale air and sweltering nights inside. If you have an air conditioner in your home, now is the time to make sure everything is in working condition.

Regular maintenance checks are important to the lifespan of all HVAC systems and in the case of air conditioners, risks are associated if you let air filter replacements fall by the wayside. An air conditioner can be begin to short-cycle and cause uncomfortable temperature changes; if dirty air restricts the flow of cold air, freezing can begin to build up ice on the foils; allergens can build up in the system and you can eventually end up with mold in the system; a dirty filter will use much more power to cool your home, and you’ll end up paying more on your utility bills. General wear and tear can also impact the lifespan of your system and eventually HVAC repairs are required.
