Invisible Fence does not harm your pet. The GPS system ALWAYS allows the dog to run back into the yard without being corrected.

And if I have done my job correctly in the training of your dog, along with this technology, your dog will never leave its set boundaries.

Many people are under huge misconceptions about what Invisible Fence does. Technology and training has evolved so dramatically over the years. Invisible Fence is the only company out there that has an entire panel of Phd Animal Behaviorists that support Invisible Fence Brand technology and have designed an entire training protocol that we had to learn as dealers/trainers to put into practice when training a dog to an Invisible Fence. The dog does not get shocked as so many people think, it is a static. It is kind and gentle. Our dogs get excited when they see their collars because they know it means that they have freedom with no more tie downs.

Prairie Boy tip on Condensation: 

Condensation on windows is a major issue for most homeowners in Regina. This issue affects new windows as much as old windows.

You might ask, why does my new window have condensation, that's why I replaced it? 

Well actually, if you don't adjust other factors in your home, your new window might gather more condensation than your old one.  This happens because your new window has created a better seal then your old window, which leads to less heat transfer.  A greater difference of temperature between the inside of your home and the exterior, the more likely you are to have condensation on your windows. This is highly evident during our lovely Regina winters. 

                                                    

What is condensation?

Condensation comes from the moisture in the air. As the air heats up, it expands, allowing it to contain more moisture, and vice versa when it cools.  The warm air from the inside of your home comes in contact with the colder glass pane in your window.  When this air reaches a cooling saturation point, the excess moisture liquifies, creating condensation.  Another thing to keep in mind is, the less amount of panes that your window has, the colder the inside pane will be which results in a higher chance of condensation .

Condensation on your windows and doors is most noticeable when the temperature outside drops quickly, creating a big difference between the inside and outside air. It is also noticeable in the early fall because during a humid summer, the home can absorb a fair amount of moisture, and when the temperature falls outside in the fall, this moisture becomes trapped inside the home, resulting in higher humidity levels and formation of condensation on the window.


                                                   

Where does this excessive moisture in the air come from?

Believe it or not, the moisture in your home comes mainly from you.

Showering, cooking, bathing, and washing all add moisture to the air.  

During the winter season, a target level of humidity indoors is considered to be between 25 and 40%.

How to prevent condensation from forming on windows?

 

Well that depends on the amount of moisture in your air, but it is about balancing the airflow in your entire home.

There are three main ways to prevent condensation:

 

1) Reduce the level of humidity in your home

2) Get the humid air out of your home

3) Circulate the air properly and consistently

Here are a few useful tips to prevent condensation:

 

-Use a hygrometer to measure the humidity levels in your home 

 

-Ensure proper venting of all your appliances and bathrooms

 

-Circulate the air inside your home; leave a fan on for a bit or open a door and/or window to let new air in (tough in the winter but even for only a minute will help reduce humidity)

 

-Lower the temperature of your home


-Get a dehumidifier.

   

                                                     


Hopefully these tips will help you understand and prevent any condensation problems that you may be having in your home.  If you have any further questions about the condensation on your windows, feel free to give us a call anytime at 306-352-5322.

Great Canadian Oil Change a Trusted Regina Automotive and Oil Expert share a tip on Differential Oil

Great Canadian Oil Change on Quance and North Albert Street in Regina provides oil changes in 10 minutes. No appointment needed! At Great Canadian Oil Change they will always do their best to keep you traveling safely, in a cleaner environment.

They are your Trusted Regina Oil Change experts in the Regina Automotive General category.


What is differential Oil?  How does it work? How often should I get a differential service?

First of all, what is a differential?

The differential is a component in all automobiles designed to compensate for the difference in distance that the inner wheels and outer wheels travel as the car goes around a corner. Basically the differential allows your car to make corners without drama. If both drive wheels rotated together, going around corners would be jerky because the outside tire travels farther than the inside.

                                                                        

In a rear-wheel-drive car, the differential has its own housing and lubrication. Front-wheel-drive vehicles typically integrate the differential in the transmission housing and share the same fluid.

The differential can be seen by looking under the bumper from the rear. The drive shaft connects to the front of it, and the axles and rear tires come off either side of it.

If you want to know more detail, search the internet. There are some cool pictures and videos of how the gears in a differential work.

What is differential oil?

Differential oil, sometimes referred to as gear oil, is found in the axle housing. It’s thicker than engine oil and is designed to perform under high pressure (gears mashing together, hydraulic nature of clutch packs) rather than high temperatures like engine oil.

                                                                   


How does the differential oil work in my vehicle? 

As you cruise down the road, the gear oil splashes about lubricating gears, bearings and clutch packs. The differential oil lubricates the ring and pinion gears that transfer power from the drive shaft to the wheel axles. If your car is fitted with a limited-slip differential, it also keeps all the moving parts in that assembly healthy. The purpose of the differential fluid is to cool and lubricate your differential. Without the oil your differential would overheat due to the metal-to-metal contact and burn itself out.

How often do I need to change the differential oil? 

Unless the gear oil has been contaminated with water, you should change the differential oil at the time recommended by the owner’s manual of your vehicle. If you don’t have the owner’s manual, we have access at Great Canadian Oil Change to all manufacturers’ recommended service intervals.

Why is it important that I have it changed when recommended? 

Changing this oil is just as important as changing your engine’s oil, and for the same reason. Metal-to-metal contact wears down surfaces and creates heat from friction, which inevitably weakens the gears and leads to failure. To keep your differential in optimum condition and to avoid costly repairs, it is best to follow the manufacturer’s recommendation on when to change the differential oil.

                                                                             

 

How can Great Canadian Oil Change help with the maintenance of my differential?

The technicians at Great Canadian Oil Change refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations of the make and model of your vehicle in order to properly service your differential. We will let you know when the recommended service interval has been reached for a change in differential oil. We offer front and rear differential services to help you maintain your vehicle.

The Services menu item on our webpage details all of the services we provide, and provides information that may be helpful to you in making the right choices for your vehicle.
