In the past few years Canada has experienced the hottest summers on record. The number of weather related incidences have grown and heat stroke is on the rise. Heat stress is our body's biochemical response to extreme temperatures. The cause is working in hot buildings and high temperatures. The need for air conditioning is very much needed.

By maintaining you air conditioner you can save money. The average savings can be up to forty percent annually. Another benefit to having a well working system is better air quality inside the home. The elderly and children can suffer severely if outside conditions are overly humid.

The quality of air is not just an outside issue. One in every four Canadians suffer from allergies caused by mold spores and pollen. Pet dander and dust mites can get into bedding and furniture and cause upper respiratory infections and other related problems.

The average single family home generates forty pounds of dust per year for every 1400 square feet. Dust can go undetected in some cases and can cause allergic reactions in a number of people. Certain filters can be installed into a new furnaces Mississauga, as well as, other surrounding areas.

Winters can be very cold with temperatures frequently dropping below freezing. Heating is very important, especially with the coldest moth being February. A furnace in good working condition is a necessity to keep your home warm.

Furnaces keep a home warm in the winter and also plays a critical role in operating an air conditioning system. A furnace produces heat through the combustion of natural gases and then passes through a heat exchanger. The heater is pivotal in air conditioning a home as well. The air passes through the AC evaporator coil and removes heat and humidity during the summer months. If looking for a furnace, all newer models are energy efficient and can save hundreds of dollars annually.

Another way to save a few dollars as well as energy, is to switch to tankless water heaters. Most Canadians use a holding tank heater to provide hot water to the home. If using a storage tank model, the water is kept hot twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week. The tankless method does not store hot water but only uses it when needed. Considering most individuals only use hot water for one hour or less a day, the water saved can cut down on costs. The water in the newer model does not have to heat up. When the tap is turned on the hot water runs immediately.

These tanks come in many different sizes and are installed quite similarly to old types. If the correct size is bought, a home will never run out of hot water. For example, a person can run two showers at the same time and water temperatures are not affected. Depending on your tub size, hot water can fill an entire bath as well. Some exceptions to this are a over-sized jacuzzi tub.
