Looking for Ways to Save Energy? 

More and more consumers are switching to energy-efficient electricity. They want to make smart decisions when it comes to installing their home with appropriate energy-saving devices. By making the switch you not only save yourself money, but you help save the environment from toxic fossil fuel pollution and help to create a more secure energy future for America. It can be a challenge to determine the best steps to take in order to yield the greatest benefit in your home. 

  • Lighting Dimmers and Timers
  • Conservation is good for everyone.  
  • Power Consumption Meters:
  • A Power consumption meter measures how much energy each appliance consumes to help you find ways to cut back. 
  • Wireless Lighting Controls:
  • Reduce unnecessary energy consumption by controlling your lights with dimmers, programmable light switches, automatic lights, sensors and timers. 
  • Solar Energy Systems:
  • Reduce your overall home energy costs, qualify for state and federal incentives, and become more environmentally friendly by installing a solar energy system in your home. 


1. Reduce your heating and electrical bills. 

2. Reduce water, air and soil pollution. This will not only help the environment but protect your children and your grandchildren from chemical pollution and disease. 

3. Reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This will help reduce the effects of global warming on our environment. 

4. Decrease North America’s energy dependence. 

5. Decrease need for fossil fuel, oil, coal, propane, and natural gas. With less of a demand for these types of energy we will be on our way to cleaner more responsible energy use.



Trusted Regina auto repair & service tip on vehicle air conditioning

Car Air Conditioning…. Helpful tips on maintenance.

Car air conditioners were once a great luxury, but alas now a common feature on cars. While the servicing of modern air conditioning systems is best left to air conditioning technicians, you can get more enjoyment from your ac system if you know a bit about how it functions and what malfunctions you should be on the lookout for.

Car manufacturers recommend that Air Conditioning systems (AC & Climate Control) are serviced every two years, which should include cleaning the refrigerant gas and the lubricating oil, as well as carrying out a system leak test. Over time the air conditioning gases in your car will escape from the AC or Climate Control system. This is because car air conditioning systems “are” designed to leak. Car engines vibrate, piping moves and the rubber ‘O’ rings expand and contract allowing leakage. This allows the performance of the air conditioning system to gradually deteriorate. The other system components are forced to work harder in order to compensate, leading to potential catastrophic failure, which will certainly be expensive to repair.

Some vital facts on car air-conditioning systems:


Foul smells coming from the air conditioning may be caused by a buildup of bacteria.

As your car ages, or when the air conditioning systems are used infrequently, bacteria, micro-organisms, mould and fungus may start growing behind the dash panel on the evaporator causing some very unpleasant odours. Some people claim this can result in headaches and flu-like symptoms sometimes referred to as “sick car syndrome.” This can be solved by using an anti-bacterial treatment that destroys the bacteria growth and leaves your car smelling fresh again and new again.

If your car does not feel cold enough, then it may be time to recharge your system.

 If you feel that your car doesn’t feel as cold as your buddies’ car, then your air-con may need servicing. The air conditioning system in your vehicle is not usually covered by most manufacturers' servicing tasks and the refrigerant gas that is used to operate the system depletes over time. On average most vehicles lose up to 15% annually. This leakage can be caused when the air conditioning is not used during the winter months thus allowing the small “O” ring seals to dry out resulting in a gradual deterioration in air-con performance. If this continues, eventually the system will not be able to function at all.
Most problems of this type can be put right fairly easily by having a leak check of your system followed by a complete refill of your refrigerant, often referred to as a re-gas. 

Using your air conditioning all year round helps maintain the system. 

If you run the air conditioning during winter it will help to keep the system well lubricated and leak-tight because the refrigerant actually carries the oil that lubricates the system and the compressor. It also keeps the seals and hoses moist, preventing them from drying out and cracking which leads to leaks.

Strange noises coming from the air conditioning should be checked immediately.

If your air conditioning suddenly starts making noises you haven’t heard before it’s advisable to have a qualified air conditioning specialist have a look at it. Some noises could be early symptoms of a compressor (air conditioning pump) failure. The compressor is the most expensive part on the system and if the bearings in your compressor break down or if the compressor seizes up it also means that other components can become contaminated with metal particles. A flush of the system would then be needed as well as replacement of the compressor, the receiver/drier and the expansion valve – which could lead to a big bite into your hip pocket.

Don’t worry about a pool of water forming under your car after using the A/C.

If you see a puddle of water on the ground, don’t be alarmed. This is a normal occurrence, as it is only water dripping from the air conditioning evaporator. The evaporator has a drain tube fitted to allow the condensation from the evaporator to drain away from the vehicle. So don’t be afraid that it’s some sort of leak.

Excessive moisture inside the car can be fixed easily

Sometimes the drain tube from the evaporator may become blocked or detached allowing condensation to build up inside your evaporator. If this occurs water will just build up inside your car to a point where carpets are damp or misting occurs. These problems can be solved with low-cost servicing.

Have your air conditioning serviced regularly, even if you have no visible problems.

Just as the other systems of your car need servicing regularly, the same applies to the air conditioning system. The compressor needs oil, or else it will seize up. The filter collects debris and moisture. If the filter becomes blocked, then the performance of the system will deteriorate and it can even stop working entirely (probably when you need it most!)

Normally the refrigerant gas in a car's air conditioning system has to be recharged completely within four years from the manufacture date and thereafter every two years.

Regular annual servicing of your car’s air conditioning system will guard against malfunctions. Annual maintenance will save you money in the long run and guarantee you comfort in the hottest you don't have to resort to desperate measures

Fireplace Tips from Wheatland Fireplace

Thinking about fireplaces? Here are some specifics you might want to think about — or, better yet, talk to your spouse about — while you’re in the planning stage.

•Decide if you want the fireplace for heat, for looks or for a combo of both. Knowing what you’re going to want the fireplace for help speed you through talks with the salesperson.

•There are fireplaces to heat one room only and there are fireplaces with heat distribution systems. Enjoy localized heat or circulate warm air to other parts of your home using our “Heat Wave” air distribution system.

•For heating efficiency, consider a thermostatically-controlled, self-modulated fireplace. Those are big words that mean the fireplace will be automatically programmed to regulate temperature.

•Ask about trim options (the casing set around your fireplace). There are lots of colours and styles and you’re sure to find one to match your décor. If this is a tough choice for you, consider consulting an interior designer. The salespeople have brochures that you can take with you.

•Visit the Wheatland Fireplaces showroom so you can see the fireplaces when they are lit and when they are turned off. The fireplace won’t be running 24/7, so you want to be sure you like the look of it with flames or without.

•Think about how you want to turn your fireplace on and off. Do you have room and the right space for a wall switch/thermostat? Or are you more of the remote control type? Old school? Then you’ll want a manual switch right on the fireplace, right?

•Wheatland Fireplace sells and installs fireplaces. That’s important. How the fireplace is installed impacts operation efficiency and durability.
