Full Throttle Furnace & Duct Cleaning Inc. is the proud sponsor of the Regina Humane Society's Pet Therapy Project.


When I sat down with owners Clint and Tania Orr and asked them why they chose to sponsor this particular charity they explained:

"We have two rescue dogs and a cat ourselves.  Also all of our staff are animal lovers, one is even a dog trainer.  This provided a great way for us to show support to our staff members, our many pet owner customers, and the community.  Animals are a part of our lives everyday and this sponsorship is just a great fit.  We are so proud to be a part of it."



Now Officially named The Regina Humane Society’s Full Throttle Furnace & Duct Cleaning Inc. Pet Therapy Program.

The program matches community volunteers with homeless animals at the Shelter who then visit senior care homes and

rehabilitation facilities in the City of Regina. The benefits of this program to all involved is immense –

animals benefit from increased social interaction and human contact, seniors and residents benefit both in

terms of physical and mental well-being and volunteers express great personal satisfaction from seeing

firsthand the interactions between all involved. By supporting the Pet Therapy Program, Full Throttle

Furnace & Duct Cleaning Inc. is helping to ensure the great work this program does will continue.

The Pet Therapy Program has been dispelling loneliness and bringing joy for over 25 years. Over 100

committed volunteers complete an average of 450 pet assisted therapy visits each year; involving Shelter

cats, dogs and rabbits specifically selected for their temperament. Forty unique locations including senior

residential facilities and rehabilitation facilities benefit from these day brightening visits.

“The uncomplicated affection and unconditional acceptance a companion animal offers is a wonderful

way to reduce anxiety and ease depression” said Lisa Koch, Executive Director of the RHS. “Studies

show that interaction with animals lowers blood pressure, improves physical and mental health,

and provides a sense of well-being. We’re honored to be able to partner with Full Throttle Furnace &

Duct Cleaning Inc. to ensure this important program continues to be offered at no-cost to the facilities and

residents who benefit from it”.


About Full Throttle Furnace & Duct Cleaning Inc.

Full Throttle Furnace & Duct Cleaning Inc. is proudly owned by a husband and wife team, Clint and Tania

Orr, who truly take pride in building a business built on good old-fashioned customer service. Regina

residents have been letting them into their homes to clean their furnaces, ductwork, air conditioning coils,

air exchangers and dryer vents for more than six years and they say it’s time to start giving back to the

community they love. With a staff full of animal lovers, having two rescue dogs themselves (and a cat),

and understanding the joy the animals bring to the lives of people, they thought this program would be the

perfect fit.

Our Trusted Regina Realtor Peter Woldu shares a tip about how to sell your home

Peter Woldu is a Trusted Regina Realty Expert.  Here he shares a tip on selling your home!

Buyers do not see your home the same way you do. They are very discriminating about its condition, the neighbourhood and the price. An average Buyer will view between 15-20 homes, ranking yours among all that they have viewed

     

1. Find A Good REALTOR® To Represent Your Needs 

A professional REALTOR® is your best bet. This person has the educational background, the industry and community connections to work in your best interests.

2. Be Clear About Why You Are Selling 

Knowing the reasons for your move determines everything from setting the price to allocating funds for repairs and improvements. Is the price you obtain more important than how long your home is on the market? Do you need to sell immediately? Each “why”requires a different strategy. At the same time, you do not need to reveal your “why”to anyone. Something negative might be used as a bargaining tool at the negotiating table. If someone wants to know why you are selling, politely respond that your housing needs have changed.

3. Conduct Thorough Research Before Setting Price

 Establishing an offering price is an investment in your future. Find out what similar homes in your neighborhood have sold for in the last 6-12 months. Also check out the prices of homes currently listed. The price you ask should be within the range of similar homes in the neighbourhood. If it is too high or too low, buyers will question the reasons for this discrepancy. Your home could stay on the market longer than you would like. You may also have to adjust the price and wind up getting less than you hoped.



4. Maximize Your Home’s Sale Potential

 First impressions are absolutely critical. The look, the feel and the care of your home promote an emotional response. Even before they walk in your door, prospective Buyers will try to imagine themselves living in your home. Just like a new outfit, Buyers want to see if this home will "fit" their lifestyle. Clean everything until it sparkles. Pick up, organize, throw away, scrub, scour, dust and disinfect. Be sure to complete all minor repairs. Buyers are especially keen on work that may need to be completed.

5. Ensure All Areas Of The Contract Are Covered

 It is in your best interests to disclose everything you know about the property. Failure to disclose could result in costly delays, litigation or even cancellation of the sales transaction. Most importantly, if a Buyer knows about an item, he or she has no future recourse. Be sure you understand all terms, costs and responsibilities. 

6. Stay In Your Home Until Closing 

It may be harder to sell a vacant home. Furniture, drapes and all the excitement of daily activities go a long way to create the warmth and comfort of a home. To some Buyers, an unoccupied home could be seen as forlorn, forgotten and not as appealing. You might have to reduce your price, depending upon the Buyer. At the same time, you are sending the message that you have found a new home, and you likely need to sell fast.

7. Stay Out Of The Way During Showings 

When Buyers view your home, gently remove yourself and allow them to feel at home. By pointing out features, improvements and decorating items that are meaningful to you, or you have spent money on, you could be seen as adding pressure to the sale. It is best to leave the showing to your REALTOR®
