 Why Dry Ice Blast Mold?

The key ingredient required to dry ice blast is dry ice pellets which are created by taking liquid carbon dioxide from a pressurized storage tank and expanding it at ambient pressure to produce snow which is compressed to make hard pellets. Dry Ice Blasting is a process in which a blasting gun fires dry ice particles, about the size of rice, at extremely high speeds to impact and clean the surface. The particles are accelerated by compressed air. When the dry ice hits the surface, it goes from a solid state to a gas state without passing through a liquid phase and cleans the surface. Dry ice blast cleaning is a favored method of cleaning mold because it is so effective and efficient.

Trusted Regina Furnace experts share some Furnace and AC tips

TRUSTED REGINA AIR CONDITIONING AND REGINA FURNACE EXPERTS and here they answer more FAQ's on Heating and cooling in your home.

How often should I change my air filter?

At the risk of telling you something you're tired of hearing, replace the air filter in your furnace on a regular basis. Dirty air filters reduce the amount of air flowing through a system and make the furnace work harder to maintain the temperature. How often you change the filter depends on the type of filter you use, if you have pets, and the size of your equipment. Please give us a call and we can give you proper guidance.

Why should I switch to a high efficiency air filter?

Proper air filtration is just as important to the health of your heating and cooling system as it is to the health of your family. Without proper filtration, dust and dirt can build up on your system which impacts operation and efficiency. A high efficiency filter will remove more dust, dirt, pollen, mold, and other particles from the air. If you suffer from allergies or other respiratory problems, you should strongly consider a high efficiency filter. No matter what type of filter you have – make sure you change it regularly.

Should I have my furnace and air conditioner serviced every year?

Yes. Keeping your system properly maintained will lower energy and repair costs, prevent breakdowns and prolong the life of your equipment. Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance while energy use steadily increases. See our preventative maintenance page under "Services" or click here to view.

Why should I purchase a service agreement?

Without warranty coverage, a breakdown can mean significant expense in parts, labor, or both. However, with one of our service agreements, you avoid that unexpected significant expense. While no warranty can guard against every possible problem, we can explain the broad range of protection our service agreements afford.

Here they share a Trusted Regina insurance tip by answering some Facebook fans questions from the Nov 2012 Trusted Regina Personal Finance talk the experts show

 

1. Child Moving Out- what Insurance do they need? 

 When a child moves out they should get insurance for their home and belongings through Home, Tenant and Condo policies. Your insurance will provide you coverage for such things as fire, and theft. Liability is also included in these options, which will cover you in case you are sued due to negligence or cause bodily injury or property damage.

2. What is Broad Coverage?

Broad Coverage for the most part is the Cadillac coverage on the building, and Pinto coverage on your contents. However, most insurance companies do offer coverage which is opposite, so you can have the Cadillac coverage on your contents and Pinto on your dwelling. If you have broad coverage, you can insure specific belongings by scheduling them on your policy. This option is available for certain types of belongings like jewellery for example. This does require an additional premium, however the coverage is comprehensive, and you can have a lower deductible.

3. Teenager getting in accidents with parents vehicle?

SGI brought out the Safe Driver Recognition Program a few years back, it is intended to penalize the driver, not the registered owner in your case. However, if you have an auto policy, these accidents will affect the policy, as it is paying out for the damages. I always recommend that parents register the vehicle in their child’s name if they are the primary operator of that vehicle. By doing this it will not cost the parent extra on their own auto policies, as well for liability purposes.

4. What exactly is No Fault Insurance?

I am glad you asked about this! The public has a common misconception on what No Fault means. No Fault means that as long as you have valid plate insurance, it does not matter who is at fault, regardless of whether it is a multi-vehicle accident or just one vehicle, the injured parties will be provided with some medical coverage. This coverage depends on whether you have chosen to be covered by No Fault or Tort.

5. I am going way on vacation what should I do re Insurance?

 It depends on what time of year you go away. In the warm season there is no requirement. However, we always recommend that you turn off your water. In the heating season it is different. During this time of year, insurance companies require the following steps be taken: you must turn off your water, have some one come in daily to check on your house, or have an alarm system which monitors for low temperatures.

6. Travelling is my stuff insured? 

When you are travelling, your home, tenant or condo insurance will temporarily cover you anywhere in the world. This includes liability coverage. However, you will be subject to your policy coverage’s, policy limits and your deductible.

7. Scheduled Insurance for expensive items of Jewellery- worth it?  

If you have valuables it is essential that you discuss them with your insurance broker. Every insurance company has different limits, and depending on the type of policy you have chosen, you could be underinsured or not insured for certain types of losses. It is a good idea to have your jewellery appraised. By doing this we can schedule your valuable jewellery on your policy for an additional premium. Scheduling your valuables will provide them with comprehensive coverage and a lower deductible, which can range from $0 and up.

RRSP vs TFSA

 

I get asked this question all the time – “What’s the difference between a TFSA and an RRSP? 

Difference:

  • Taxation on the way into and out of these accounts
  • Tax Deferred growth in both accounts 
  • These are accounts, not investments Both these accounts are very similar except for how they are taxed.

 

On an RRSP, you get a ‘tax break,’ meaning, if you put money into an RRSP, it will be deducted from your income and you will receive the taxes you have already paid back after you do your tax return. Example. You earn $50,000 and contribute $5000 to your RRSP. Your income comes down to $45,000 but you have paid tax on $50,000. The tax paid on that $5,000 gets refunded to you. The RRSP is therefore an ‘un-taxed’ pool of money. If you take money out, you will then need to pay tax. TFSAs are different in that you do not get a tax break on the way in – in our example, your $5000 does not reduce your income. Which means your account is a ‘taxed’ pool of money and is not taxable when you withdraw it. They both benefit from tax deferred growth – meaning you don’t pay taxes on the interest, dividends or capital gains from the investment in these accounts. But how they are taxed on the way in and on the way out is the difference. And you’ll notice I never said anything about these being investments – that is because neither an RRSP nor a TFSA is an investment – they are accounts.

If you choose to put GICs, Mutual Funds, Stocks or Bonds in these accounts is up to you. But they are just that – accounts.

Which one should you do? I can only make a recommendation if I know your specific circumstances but one thing is certain – you should do one of them!
