Ontario electricity has never been cheaper, but bills have never been higher

August 10, 2016 by


It is so disappointing to learn that all the pain we have accepted as a province will accomplish nothing towards helping the environment while devastating our province and especially the not wealthy people who can no longer make ends meet.
It is easy to just blame the government but as a society we are to blame for endorsing these failed policies, cronyism and corruption by giving the government a strong mandate. They are doing their job and what they campaigned on in the election that we granted to them.

Wynne’s Green Revolution – Hold On To Your Wallets

May 16, 2016 by

Today in The Globe and Mail, it was reported that the Wynne Liberals, intend to spend 7 BILLION DOLLARS of your money over 4 years to slash Ontario’s carbon footprint. How will they do this? Well, the article in today’s paper exposes the secret 57 page Climate Change Action Plan that the Wynne government intends to execute. It is a sweeping 80 policies grouped into 32 actions that will cost our province as a whole and all of us individuals huge money in the next 20 years.

I am really interested in hearing from all my friends how they feel about this initiative and how it will impact Ontarians. Please read the Globe article and let me know what you think.

I am very concerned about electricity becoming unaffordable for average consumers over this period of time. One main change the Wynne government intends to impose on Ontarians is outlawing any form of the affordable natural gas heat we now heavily rely upon and force consumers and businesses to heat their homes with electricity. Whether by forcing them into extremely expensive electric, heat pump or geo thermal heat pump based heating systems, our costs will skyrocket.

We were recently hit with a massive rate increase because we were using “too little” electricity and the poor electricity generation monopolies complained of insufficient profit because of their reduced sales that were directly impacted by the installation of so many high efficiency systems across Ontario.

Now Wynne has the ideal plan to ensure that the electricity monopolies get the profits they want. By forcing every home and business to heat with electricity, the demand for electricity will skyrocket, and of course the rates will skyrocket as well, but the consumer will be severely battered on all levels. Firstly, the cap and trade tax which will raise the price of everything, then our heating systems will change to electricity which will drastically increase our heating costs and to make it even worse, our electricity rates will skyrocket.

I am very concerned that living in Ontario will become unaffordable for the average working class family. How many of us can afford to increase our budgets by 30%? I believe conservatively that this will be the cost of these revolutionary changes.

But as a heating and air conditioning contractor who is also an Accredited Geothermal Designer and Installer, I must thank the Wynne liberals for ensuring that every heating and air conditioning system in Ontario will require changing to very costly new systems in short order. This will definitely keep us contractors very busy and very profitable.

Higher electricity rates kick in for Ontario

May 2, 2016 by

Hello Friends,

Here we go again!

It is unfortunate that our electricity costs have quadrupled in the last 10 years and electricity is becoming unaffordable.  Upgrading to high efficiency equipment is no longer a luxury to save electricity, without high efficiency, I know many people who simply cannot afford to heat and cool their homes. Please see this article from the Toronto Sun on the latest rate increase.


Power to the people comes with an ever steeper price.

Clean Energy or Money Grab

February 22, 2016 by

Our provincial government hiked the cost of electricity that many people can no longer afford to power their homes. These crazy high electricity prices are inducing people to change from unaffordable electric heat to much more affordable gas heat. This seems logical especially since getting a gas line from Enbridge is free to anyone looking to get gas service. However, the provincial government,  in a sneaky move just approved insanely high rates to install gas lines. The average home pays over $2,000 plus tax to have a gas line installed. I even have a customer who was told that a gas line would cost almost $30,000.
Clearly, our government does not care about efficiency, only revenue and is opening every avenue to take money from hard working Ontarians.
I am so upset about this massive barrier the provincial governemt has placed in front of those wishing to conserve electricity.
I have alot to share with you about this issue. Please let me know if you want more information.

When did you last service your water heater?

December 22, 2015 by

Once again we had a CO incident in Toronto. Most people don’t realize that their water heater requires annual maintenance. Do you rent your water tank? Is it serviced regularly. If not, you are endangering the lives of your family.

Keep Your Family Safe

November 29, 2015 by

Carbon Monoxide poisoning has once again reared its ugly head and injured people in Toronto.

To keep yourself safe, make sure to have a working carbon monoxide detector on every level of your home in a location that will alert you even if you are sleeping. It must be loud enough to wake you up in the event of danger.

Do you know that CO detectors expire? Make sure to check your CO detectors are not expired. They will have an expiry date on them.

Do you need new detectors? You can buy them at any home store such as Canadian Tire, Home Depot, Lowes, Home Hardware.

Don’t procrastinate on this one, your life and the lives of your family are at stake.

See this news article from CTV news.

Good Day My Friends,

I am saddened to say that we were called to a building by a new client last week to “get the gas meter unlocked” and restore the heat. When we reached this site, we found an active investigation going on by TSSA, Metro Police and Enbridge. We were told that someone installed the boiler in an unsafe manner and then jumpered a safety switch which allowed the boiler to operate in a dangerous condition spewing carbon monoxide into the building. 2 people are fighting for their lives with a low chance of survival due to this carbon monoxide poisoning.

Please make sure only to employ licensed and qualified service technicians. Nobody wants to be the cause of death and nobody wants anyone to die for such a preventable cause.
