Considering having your ducts cleaned? Be careful who you get to do the job, according to Len Friesen, owner of Air-o-Vac Ltd. “There are no government standards or regulations. Anybody can get into the business, no matter what their qualifications or equipment. We’ve been in business since 1974 and have a reputation as one of the best companies in the province.” There are a few questions you should ask the duct cleaning service before hiring them. “You’ll want to know if the vacuum unit they use is portable or truck mounted, and how they are going to loosen the materials in the ducts,” Friesen said. Both these operations must take place if the ducts are going to be cleaned properly. Many companies use brushes to loosen the dirt, but, Friesen says that is not the most effective way. “All the brushes were developed in Europe where the ducts are round,” he said. “North American ducts are rectangle, so round brushes don’t reach the corners.” Air-o-Vac performs this operation using a special, pressure driven octopus tool with tentacles that reach every part of the duct. Then they employ a rotary backsweep that uses 230 PSI of air pressure to drive the loosened debris back to a powerful, direct turbine vacuum. “We use a truck mounted vacuum unit that has a rating of 16,000 cubic feet per minute. Portable units just don’t have the power to do the job properly.” At Air-o-Vac, there are no gimmicks – just a combination of high-tech tools, powerful air pressure, and suction power. In addition to cleaning your ducts and furnace, Air-o-Vac offers optional air conditioner cleaning and a special disinfecting process that kills mould, mildew, fungus, bacteria, dust mites and spider mites. Air-o-Vac can handle any residential or commercial job.

Insurance Company Refusing to Insure Your Home because of KNOB & TUBE WIRING?

THEN IT’S TIME TO CALL 204-774-1474 BEFORE

Frequently asked question about knob & tube wiring. IS IT SAFE? Knob & tube is an unground system, which provides a greater chance of shock or cause damage to today’s televisions or appliances

AFTER

It is common to find that newer wiring and renovations have been added to knob & tube by amateurs, resulting in dangerous conditions, which could lead to fire!

?

WHY are insurance companies starting to deny insuring knob & tube homes? When insurance companies walk away from policies, it usually means there is an ABOVE AVERAGE RISK attached to the insurable products. This usually means home owners beware.

Until October 30, 2013, On Time Electric will provide a FREE CONSULTATION AND QUOTE on your Knob & Tube Challenge

BONUS> Call 204.774.1474 and get $500

OFF

To qualify for the $500 off, a minimum of $2500 on knob & tube must be invoiced.

The accredited business concept better conveys to the public that BBB is a standard setting organization and that its members have committed to standards. It is a concept that will be utilized to promote our members to the public. BBB Accreditation is an honor and not every company is eligible. We only accredit businesses that pass a strict review process – every BBB Accredited Business is evaluated in light of our standards prior to acceptance. Standards only matter if they are enforced, and BBB enforces our standards for the good of the consumer and our other BBB Accredited Businesses. It is important to all of us that our good name remains untarnished. Every BBB Accredited Business is monitored for continuing adherence to our standards and reaffirms its commitment to those standards each year. Accreditation can be withdrawn at any time for failure to maintain BBB standards. In the future, when BBB tells communities across the country to Start With Trust, we will be telling them to look for BBB Accredited Businesses just like yours.
