" Very professional staff. Our job was completed as promised, when promised. The plumber was very knowledgeable and only recommended what was needed to be fixed. We are extremely satisfied with the work and highly recommend ProSolutions for your project."By: Nolseen
Woke up on a Saturday morning with no hot water, only to realize my hot water tank is gone after just 5 years, (2 months out of warranty). Called ProSolutions as they had previously done a great job on my air conditioning install.
Irene returned my call within minutes of my message, had Paul over at my place within the hour, quote in 20 minutes. All on a Saturday! As soon as I said yes, the work started, had Steven come out with the tank within another 30 minutes and 90 minutes in I had a new working tank!
In the middle of all this, I was messaging Jason (the owner) to make sure I had a great price and he replied within 10 minutes to give me comfort and work with Simon to see how they could help me more!
Great team, great leadership! Thank you ProSolutions!By: Azfar K.
Amazing company to have dealt with. My furnace and A/C were installed before I even had anything moved in to my new house and although I haven’t tried the heat yet, I must say just having a little bit of air conditioning to take the edge off in these warmer weeks will be amazing! Thank you to Mark, Riley and Mike!By: Megan A.
Ed was an awesome technician. He resolved the issue with our air conditioner. I would definitely recommend your company. Thank you Ed.By: Donna D.
One of my furnace stopped working last night and I called up Pro Solution this morning. A technician was dispatched within a few hours and got the furnace working (a broken hose was discovered). A relief as I didn't want to purchase new furnace (16 years old furnace). The technician was a very friendly man, professional and very knowledgeable - even gave us a discount :).
Just for additional background and the confident level I have with Pro Solutions. I upgraded one of my furnace (one of the two), installed a new Air Conditioning and water tank recently, all with Pro Solution over the years. I had quotes from other companies and the price is very comparable or even slightly cheaper. They will match or beat the other companies price.
Pro Solution, you exceed customer expectation, so keep up the great work!By: Robert D.

How can I reduce my AC bill?
You can reduce your AC bill by ensuring that your air conditioner is running as efficiently as possible.
To guarantee your air conditioner is in top working condition, you’ll want to do some AC maintenance before starting up the unit in the summer. Make sure you clean the inside and outside of your central AC unit and change or clean the filters. This will ensure that airflow is not being restricted, causing your AC to have to work harder. Also, consider checking the concrete slab that your AC unit is sitting on. It should be level. Check your condensation line and the insulation on your coolant lines to ensure everything is in good working condition.
To further reduce your AC bill, consider these energy-saving tips:
Upgrade to a high-efficiency AC unitInstall a programmable thermostatKeep your thermostat at a constant temperatureUse fans to help circulate cool airKeep your air ducts cleanInstall energy-efficient windowsKeep your blinds and windows closed during the day

When should I get my AC Serviced?
How do I protect my AC unit against mother nature?
How do you protect your AC unit. The Edmonton area has a substantial mice population and they can get into that outside condenser unit to build their nests. You’ll also find leaves and other debris, including small branches. It’s smart to clean them all away.

AC parts – Which parts break down if it’s not maintained?
AC parts break down over time. However, an improperly maintained central air conditioning system will put pressure on every part of that system. A dirty filter that hasn’t been replaced, fans that are not cleaned, leaking refrigerant, exposed wires in the electrical box, ice build up on coils. These put pressure on the capacitors, sensors that track heat levels and thermostat readings and generally weaken the unit so it does not run efficiently and any part can break down.Read More...
Cleaning condensing unit – The Do’s and Don’ts.
Cleaning a condensing unit can be an important part of maintaining the longevity of your condensing unit. Should you use a pressure washer or liquid cleaner though? The short answer is NO! Do not use a power washer. You may damage fins or other parts of the condensing unit. Use a garden hose and spray into the coil to remove all the dust and other stuff that gets onto the coil over the season. As for liquid cleaners, most of them contain corrosive agents and you don’t want to damage the coil or any other parts of the unit with which it comes in contact.
If you're thinking about cleaning a condensing unit. A certified AC repair contractor will have specialized cleaners in cases where the coil needs to be thoroughly cleaned.Read More...
Air Conditioner Maintenance FAQs
It’s not necessary unless you’re concerned a chunk of ice should fall on it and damage the motor. If so, put a board, like a thick piece of plywood across and anchor it with rocks/cinder blocks, etc.
When it comes to air conditioner maintenance, At ProSolutions Inc., we think it is better to not protect it all round with a tarp/cover as you may get insects and mice showing up as residents. Or moisture may get in during the winter causing corrosion.
Blowing snow and rain will not cause problems for your outside unit when you are properly maintaining it throughout the year. So remember, when it comes to Air Conditioner Maintenance, it's important to be on top of it!Read More...
Can I have too large of an AC System?
Does the size of AC unit effect performance? Yes! Often, homeowners who buy based on the biggest cooling capacity are disappointed in the final performance of their system.
If the unit is too large, the space gets too cool and humidity is not removed. You’ll feel cold and clammy. Plus the frequent cycling can wear out your AC Unit faster since the hardest load on your AC is when you start it up. You can also freeze up the AC unit if the air flow is too low and the unit can not be kept from freezing up. Freezing up of a central AC system is a recipe for disaster on the HVAC equipment.Read More...
What does SEER stand for?
SEER is the acronym for “Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio”. It is a maximum rating and not a constant value which can make it hard to really understand in every situation. Higher numbers represent higher efficiency. Currently, you can find AC units with SEER ratings as high as 25.
Basically, SEER is the average expected energy use of your home’s AC unit if you keep a constant inside temperature while dealing with the outside fluctuations in temperature during the season (so 15 - 35 degrees C in Alberta).
You can think of the SEER value the same way as the milage (L/100km) your vehicle gets. Under optimal conditions, without driving aggressively (cooling too much) you should average out to the manufacturers rating.Read More...

Is your air conditioning system in good shape? If it is older than 8-10 years it is going to be less efficient. Since AC systems in 2020 can be 60% more efficient than 10 years ago, by replacing aging units you will save on operating costs. A unit 15 years or older is not only less efficient but likely to run into expensive repairs as parts wear out. Also if it old and phased out refrigerant R-22 in your system, it will be almost too difficult to service and repair, as the chlorine based gas is being replaced by r-410a chlorine free product and other eco-friendly refrigerants in the residential industry.Read More...

Furnace blower is not working! What should I do?
If your furnace blower is not working, there could be a couple of issues here, one more serious than the other. Firstly, it is important to understand how a furnace works. You can begin to understand this through a very simple principle. A furnace uses some type of fuel (i.e. electrical, oil, gas, etc) to heat a series of coils. What type of fuel your furnace uses for this combustion. This series of heated coils (called a heat exchanger) has a fan (called a blower motor) which blows your houses' air over them and into your air ducts where it is dispersed throughout your house. This simple process, regardless of what type of fuel you use, is how your furnace is able to blow warm air into your home.
If you're having any issues with your furnace blower not working. It can come down to the blower motor in the furnace may need replacing and that’s usually a job for the experts. A capacitor. If the capacitor is defective, the fan motor might be noisy, overheat, or not run at all. If the control board is defective, it might not send voltage to the blower motor. If the furnace is not getting power, check the furnace circuit breaker or fuse as this might also be an issue.
On the other hand, the unit may be clogged with dirt and dust and you may be able to fix that yourself but may likely need special attention to unclog the debris and dirt from the components.
In the end, there are several things that can lead to a furnace not blowing air. If you decide to try and repair an older unit and it requires more effort and costs incurred. It may just be more advantageous to replace it.

What is the difference between a boiler and a furnace?
In Edmonton, both boilers and furnaces are used to provide homes with heat. The difference between a boiler and a furnace is the way in which they heat a home.
A boiler takes water and heats it then circulates this hot water (or steam, in some cases) throughout the house in order to heat it. The hot water is circulated using pipes, radiators and/or radiant floor systems. Once the water has cooled, it is returned to the boiler to be heated and reused in a closed-loop system.
A furnace, on the other hand, heats and distributes air in order to heat a home. This hot air is distributed via ductwork and vents.Read More...
