Dog Days of Summer

While we’re enjoying the outdoor weather during the day, have you noticed that it’s getting cooler at night? What happened to the dog days of summer? Last year we were offering Keep Cool Tips to survive the heat. But this year the heat has barely caused us to break a sweat!   

Now that the weather has been cooler, people are starting to think ahead to fall: back to school, long sleeves, raking leaves and getting their home heating systems ready for winter. And it’s a good thing too! Weather experts are calling for another cold winter. Home comfort is crucial during the long winter months and no one wants problems with their heating!

That’s why a lot of Afterglow customers have been upgrading and adding radiators to their homes. And not just room rads, but some other features you may not know about, such as, towel radiators for your bathroom, and for your front hall coat racks. We can even heat radiators off your water heater!

When winter does come, you can relax knowing your home will always be safe from the cold.

In the meantime, let’s enjoy what these last few weeks of summer have left to offer! 

Water, warmth, well-being.

Ductless Air Conditioners

No ducts in your home? No problem!

The solution: ductless air conditioners.

Afterglow has installed more ductless air conditioners this year than ever before!

Whether single units or multi-zone, people are just loving this technology, and Afterglow is in love with them too. We love that we can install them just about anywhere. We mainly install them in homes that don’t have ducts or forced air furnaces.

Now we can install most ductless ACs in homes with boilers. They’re also great for homes heated by electricity, town homes and even garages. Afterglow is in love with ductless ACs because they are very efficient. They are excellent for rooms that you’re having trouble cooling, or even heating. Because, as heat pumps, they are able to create heat in the winter! Take that regular ACs!

Just think, you’re investing in cooling AND heating! While we’re loving this beautiful, hot summer weather, we as Canadians know that fall and winter are too soon just around the corner.

But in the meantime, we’re out there camping, going to the cottage, the beach, the parks, and enjoying the hot summer weather and want our homes to be a cool comfort.

Consider falling in love with the ductless ACs, just like so many satisfied Afterglow customers have.

Looking at a Long Summer

After a long, cold winter we are looking at a long, hot summer!

How do you plan on keeping your house cool and comfortable this season? Everyone would like to find ways which are energy and cost efficient. We don’t want to see our bills go through the roof, but we also want to sleep comfortably at night and take a break from the daytime heat indoors.

There are a lot of great ways to beat the heat, and we shared some of them with you last year in our Keep Cool Tips. One of the best ways to budget for a new air conditioning unit is to try calculating how often you would run it. In Southern Ontario, we cool for about 600 hours per year! That is an average of 25 days and nights worth of cooling. While it may not seem like a lot of days, the cost can add up quickly!

At Afterglow, we would be more than happy to help you with energy calculations to
find the right solution for your home and family. After such a long, cold winter, we
want to be able to enjoy the summertime!

Give us a call today for friendly and professional advice on all your cooling needs.

10 year WARRANTY from Afterglow

It’s hard to believe all of that snow has finally melted and we can turn off our furnaces for another season! It’s great to be able to be outside enjoying our gardens and parks. We can finally put away big winter boots and coats and even put shovels back in the basement or garage where they belong. There are flowers, leaves budding on trees and a lot of birds. I’ve seen neighbours I haven’t seen all winter!

But no sooner are we done complaining about the cold, the heat and the humidity starts to get to us. Well, here’s a friendly reminder that Afterglow services and installs air conditioners as well as furnaces, boilers and water heaters.

But did you know that Afterglow offers the industry’s BEST warranty? Afterglow warrants everything they install, and they mean EVERYTHING, for 10 years. Yep, ten years. All you have to do is get it checked (serviced) by us once a year.

That’s because at Afterglow we know that your heating and air conditioning systems are the most important investment in your home.

When looking for someone to service or install something so big and complicated and, well, expensive, you want to know that it will be reliable for a good long time.

Imagine your furnace or hot water heater giving up during that cold winter? Yikes! Or trying to sleep in a nice, cool comfortable home on a hot and humid summer night when the A/C decided to conk out! Who wants the added stress of more bills or loopholes in warranties, which may not cover “such-and-such” a part.

Afterglow warrants EVERYTHING and we mean it! Every screw, fitting, piece of duct and vent as well as the equipment.

Phew! Nice to enjoy peace of mind in heating and cooling. No one should have to worry about being comfortable, no matter what the season. During this hot and humid summer, you may consider upgrading or even installing a new A/C. Afterglow experts are more than happy to offer advice about the right solution for your home.

Until next time, enjoy the weather!
