Fresh Meat in Toronto


Hello from Toronto, the parking lot of The Great White North.

Serial entrepreneur straight out of University and really enjoy learning new skills and taking on projects, from business starts to woodworking to home building.

My wife and I soon close on a new house which we will gutt and reno. Third house so we have experience but put value in research and sharing of knowledge.

Looking forward to meeting and learning.

Welcome and Good Day, Eh.

Heat is very important in the Great White North so visit the HVAC forum. May need a new heating and AC system depending on its age.

Thanks Yuri. Have posted a few q's on hvac forum about what to look for in new system as we'll be doing a full gutt of all services.

As always, hvac goes first at finding room for proper air handling.

See your in the Peg, so you probably know a bit about designing for both ends of the spectrum!

...yes, hvac needs to be part of the planning process before you do anything, not an afterthought.

The older the house is the more messed up of a system you'll be dealing with especially if forced air; if the house is a century old be prepared to find completely butchered heating and electrical. It's all out of sight, out of mind, until you're really uncomfortable or the house burns down respectively.

I am not in the business of any trade I give advice on. I have non-professional hvac experience + good knowledge of theory. Attempt repairs at your own risk. Never jump out safeties - especially pressure switches - on a furnace for testing with fuel supply on; use a meter. Do not troubleshoot with live line voltage present unless there's no alternative.
