    City warns Edmontonians about aggressive door-to-door furnace sales




    If you like this, share it!

  • The City of Edmonton is warning citizens to look out for sales representatives fraudulently posing as City inspectors who claim homeowners must submit to unannounced inspections of their furnace or water heater.
    These fake inspections are used as a tactic to pressure homeowners into purchasing household energy appliances.
    “The City does not conduct unannounced inspections or sales of home energy appliances, such as furnaces,” said Steve Goodwin, Chief Plumbing and Gas Inspector with the City. “Sales representatives engaging in pushy door-to-door sales tactics or coercing homeowners into fake inspections under threat of punitive City action should be reported.”
    The unsolicited, door-to-door selling of household energy products, such as furnaces, water heaters, windows and air conditioners, has been prohibited by Service Alberta since January 1, 2017. If you or your neighbours have had such an encounter, contact Service Alberta at 780-427-4088 or to file a complaint.
    City inspections are required only when homeowners install a new or replacement furnace or water heater, and homeowners should coordinate directly with the City in advance to book the required inspections.
    City inspectors will not show up unannounced in the evenings, or on the weekend. All inspectors dress in official City safety codes inspector uniforms and carry valid City photo identification.

    Heritage designation for home with ties to Edmonton’s railway




    If you like this, share it!

  • A Westmount home that housed many railway workers in the heyday of train travel in Edmonton has been formally designated a Municipal Historic Resource by City Council.
    The Marshall Hopkins Residence, built in 1912, is an excellent example of wood-framed, Foursquare construction. The residence includes original clapboard siding on both the upper and lower levels and a full-width open veranda on the east elevation.
    “While the Marshall Hopkins home is one of many Foursquare homes in the Westmount area, each house has its own story to tell,” says David Johnston, Principal Heritage Planner for the City. “This kind of classic, square plan structure reminds us of an era when homes were built to be functional as well as beautiful.”
    Mr. Hopkins was the Chief Land Surveyor for the Alberta Land Titles Office when he moved into the newly built home around 1913 and lived there for a year. The home has had a variety of residents, including a number of Canadian National Railway employees between 1926 and 1953.
    The City’s Historic Resource Management Plan outlines the City’s mission to identify, protect and promote the preservation and use of historic resources. The Plan contains 24 policies and 88 action items that direct how Edmonton’s heritage should be preserved and celebrated. Since the plan was initiated in 1985, 152 properties have been designated with more designations planned in the future.
