- Unit Age: If your water heater is over 6 years old, then it’s time to think about replacing it. Check the manufacturer label to find out how old your unit is.
- Rusty Water: If your hot water has a rusty colour when it comes out of the tap, then parts of the tank have rusted and corroded. The tank needs to be replaced right away.
- Noise: If your unit is making loud noises, that is a sure sign that it is on its last legs and needs to be replaced.
- Water Leaks: If you notice a puddle around your water heater, there is definitely a leak in the unit. If the unit is also old, then it should be replaced. Otherwise, it might be able to be repaired.
- Cold Water: If try to run hot water from any of your taps or shower, and no hot water comes out, then your water heater has stopped functioning and needs to be fixed or replaced.

At Sauve Heating & Air Conditioning, our goal is to give our client’s the most life out of their furnace as possible. We will ask you “how much longer you would like your furnace to last?” and do our best to make that happen. We're focused on developing long-term relationships with you and your furnace.
Our technicians will regularly offer their opinion and recommendations in order to stay on top of your HVAC system and prevent any HVAC emergencies from occurring.
Our team of experts can help you to determine whether it is more beneficial to continue investing in your current HVAC system or replace it with a new one, depending on the cost of the repairs and the age of your furnace.
- Savvy home buyers tend to be more interested in a home’s functionality (like heating and cooling) than cosmetic features.
- Homes with built-in air conditioning such as a central air conditioning system typically sell for more than homes without it.
- The superior energy efficiency and climate control capabilities of a ductless system compared to traditional systems is an incredibly valuable selling point for financially and environmentally conscious people.
- Heating and cooling a smaller space, addition, or outbuilding.
- In rooms which are not regularly used
- For people who have dust allergies
- For those who want to avoid more complex systems requiring installation of ducting
- For people who want to have specific temperatures for individual rooms
A great first step is to seal any drafty windows or doors. If you continue to experience a chill throughout the house, it is possible there is a problem with your furnace or maybe your ductwork. It could be as simple as adjusting how much air is coming out of certain vents, or maybe adding a couple extra vents.There are a number of factors that could be at play if your house remains cold:
- Is your furnace the right size and is it working properly?
- Are there enough supply vents throughout the house and in the proper locations?
- Are there enough return air vents?
- Are any vents covered?
- Is the thermostat registering an accurate assessment of the home?
Sauve Heating & Air Conditioning has a reputation for finding solutions to the toughest problems, something many other companies don't take the time to do. We take our time to find the issue(s) and offer multiple targeted options, usually consisting of a combination of solutions to keep your home comfortable.
Adding insulation is one of the most cost-effective ways to add comfort to a home. That said, a properly-sized furnace and adequate distribution system (ductwork) should be able to overcome any lack of insulation.
When it’s time to replace your heating or cooling system, you will inevitably weigh all the options available including more efficient equipment systems. Eco-friendly heating & cooling is a term used to describe heating and cooling systems that use resources more responsibly and efficiently, with both the environment and your wallet in mind.
If you are in the market for a new heating or cooling system, choosing a higher energy efficient system is a good option that benefits the environment and will save you money in the long run. These types of systems include high-efficient natural gas or propane furnaces and heat pumps.
Our gas-burning equipment start at 96% efficient, while our heat pumps are 300-400% efficient. Sauve Heating and Air Conditioning will take the time to go through your options in order to find the system that best suits both your needs and your budget.
