See What Our Satisfied Customers Have to Say About Our Service (https://goo.gl/dkETmZ)

Here are just a few of the recent comments that real customers just like you have left about their experiences.

I have been using Air Quality for over 8 years, for all our air conditioning and furnace needs. They are always prompt, friendly, clean and reliable. Brian, in particular, has been extremely helpful. Not only does he complete his work in a timely manner, but he is thorough and professional as well. Today he took the extra time to show me how to use my thermostat more efficiently and how to adjust the settings on my humidifier. Those extra tips and support really mean a lot. I also find the office personnel very pleasant to deal with and would recommend this company to anyone. Clifford, Mississauga

My steam humidifier was not working after being installed by another company only 2 years prior. The crew at Air Quality Dunrite campaigned the manufacturer, Honeywell, to replace the unit at no cost to me even though it was out of warranty and Dunrite did not originally sell and install it. Air Quality Dunrite has once again proven that ultimately the customer comes first. Thanks to their great service, everything is running great. Greg, North York

Seven Benefits of an A/C Tune-Up (https://goo.gl/taUcny)

Your home's HVAC system needs regular maintenance checkups just like visiting the dentist every year to keep your teeth healthy. And for most homeowners, the smartest time to schedule these checkups is right before you begin to use these home heating and cooling components. So for your furnace, the late summer and early fall is the best time to schedule inspections, and for your air conditioning unit, the best time is during the spring. Scheduling these appointments ahead of time allows you to address and fix any issues that might prevent you from using your system when you need to in time.

Here are six benefits to scheduling a regular, annual air conditioning tuneup.

1. You'll extend the working life of your air conditioner by replacing parts when they need it, as opposed to waiting until something breaks, causing more wear and tear.

2. If your equipment is working properly, it will keep you cooler on those hot days.

3. You'll protect the environment by monitoring the refrigerant levels and keeping them at a safe amount.

4. You'll save money on repairs, as checkups are cheaper than repair costs.

5. You'll save money on electricity if your system is running at prime efficiency.

6. A well-running a/c is significantly quieter than an unmaintained system.

7. You can guard your home against damage from leaks by keeping the moisture out of the air.

5 Things You Can Do Yourself To Keep Your Furnace Running Efficiently (https://goo.gl/yzWHKD)

There are many things you can do yourself as a homeowner to help reduce the need for expensive furnace repairs. Keeping up with furnace maintenance will delay the need for these repairs as well as extend the life of your HVAC system.

Because heating and cooling your home is the largest use of energy, it's essential to be as efficient as possible in order to not waste money. In fact, nearly 45 percent of your home's energy bills go towards your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system.

Here are nine things you can do yourself to improve your home's energy efficiency.

*1. Dress for the season, even indoors to keep your thermostat as low as is comfortable in the winter and as high as possible in the summer.

*2. Keep your air filters clean and change them out monthly or as needed.

*3. Keep your vents and registers unobstructed by furniture and drapes. Vacuum them regularly if you have pets.

*4. Make sure you're not losing hot or cold air from drafty windows and doors by checking the seal here seasonally.

*5. Be careful not to leave your exhaust fans on for too long, as they can suck out all the hot or cooled air from your home within hours.

6 Insider Secrets That Only Contractors Know (But Won't Tell You) (https://goo.gl/npPaaw)

If you are like many homeowners, you want to save as much money as you can while still enjoying a comfortable lifestyle. So optimizing your home and the systems you use daily or seasonally is very important. Sometimes you'll need to install new systems or opt for specific materials when outfitting your home, but here are six money-saving secrets that contractors know and use when they build homes, make renovations, and even use in their own homes.

1. Opt for central air While this can be a bigger ticket item at first, the efficiency for cooling that modern central air conditioning systems use will save you big bucks as opposed to using window units or other A/C alternatives.

2. Consider Sheetrock While lath and plaster walls look incredible, they can be pricey to maintain over time and aren't as easy to work with if you want to make future energy-saving upgrades like installing recessed lighting. Sheetrock is the more cost-effective option.

3. Make sure your home has proper drainage Keeping moisture, dirt, and grime away from the foundation of your home will prevent bigger issues down the road. This is especially important for older homes.

What Furnace and Air Conditioner Filters Should You Buy? (https://goo.gl/eQxJm1)

Chances are, your HVAC service company has recommended that you change out your furnace and air conditioner filters regularly, and even more often during the times of year where you are using these systems more frequently. But if you've spent any time in your home improvement store or shopping online, you may have noticed there are a lot of options out there.

While buying the most expensive filters available probably doesn't make sense for most homeowners unless they suffer from extreme allergies, purchasing the cheapest models also likely won't give you the results and peace of mind you want either. Choosing a HEPA rated filter is common for filtering out potentially harmful particles from your home's air, but the HEPA system works on a pass-fail rating, meaning it's HEPA or it's not.

Another system that has emerged in the market is known as the MERV system, which stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. MERV ratings fall on a scale from 1 to 20, with higher numbers indicating better performance.

Speak with your HVAC professional about which system makes the most sense for your needs and your system.

Here's a Home Improvement Issue You Should Never Ignore (https://goo.gl/6DKSTX)

One of the downsides of homeownership is that when unexpected appliance failures arise, there's not much you can do about it but call the repair service to come and fix or replace your problematic item. But there are some things you can do to prevent these major household calamities and reduce the amount of money you're sure to spend when you call an emergency technician.

For a failing furnace, there are actually some distinct signs you might be in the danger zone. First is a symphony of unpleasant sounds. Another is skyrocketing energy bills. To prevent these things from happening, one of the best furnace-protecting tasks you can perform is to swap out your furnace filters once per month. In fact, according to HVAC experts, old or clogged furnace air filters can seriously damage your furnace and negatively impact the safety of your home.

The pros recommend changing out your furnace air filters once a month during high-use times like winter, spring, and fall. You can either use lower-cost disposable filters or higher-end washable filters, depending on your needs and budget.
