Tips for Toronto Pet Owners: Ways to Keep Your Rabbit Cool When the Air Conditioner Dies

Rabbits are fragile creatures. When the temperature rises above 25 degrees Celsius (77 degrees Fahrenheit), they are at risk of overheating and suffering from heat exhaustion. According to the House Rabbit Society, rabbits are especially vulnerable when they are overweight, young, old, or have heavy fur.

In Toronto, the temperature only rises above 30 degrees Celsius seven days a year on average. However, there have been recent exceptions, like the year 2016, where there were over a dozen. And 2018 is shaping up to be another particularly hot year.

So what are you to do when you air conditioner dies? You can call for repairs, but it may be a few hours before the technician arrives, especially if there’s a backlog of calls. These measures can help you keep your rabbit cool and comfortable in the meantime.

  1. Use oscillating fans to create a breeze in the room. Fans cannot actually make the room cooler, but they can create a wind chill effect that makes the air feel cooler on the rabbit’s skin so it can more easily shed its excess body heat.
  2. If one room is cooler than the other, move your bunny to that cooler part of the house. This is especially important if he or she is penned into one room, or can’t move to other parts of the house because of tile floors.
  3. Mist your bunny’s ears with cool water. They may not like this much, but it can help. Rabbits regulate body heat through their ears, so the evaporating water will help keep them cool.
  4. Place a frozen water bottle on the floor so your rabbit can lay next to it. Some pet owners use a ceramic tile for this purpose instead. Either way, it helps to give them something to cool off with.
  5. Add a bit of ice to your bunny’s water bottle or water dish.

While you’re at it, be sure to watch for signs of heat exhaustion, which warrant a trip to the emergency vet. The signs include fast, shallow breathing, wet nose, hot ears, lethargy, and panting while tossing its head back.

When the temperature rises, it’s important not to leave your rabbit alone for too long without air conditioning. If you cannot be around to monitor its health, you should try to get your air conditioning fixed as soon as possible.

How Do Custom Home Builders Charge in Ontario?

When the market doesn’t deliver, people often turn to a custom home builder to make their homeownership dreams come true.

Custom home builders are in the business of bringing a family’s vision of the ideal house to life. But they are, of course, still a business! They need to make a profit off the build, and homeowners have to budget carefully.

It’s important to know what to expect. Here’s how custom home builders generally charge for their services in Ontario.

How custom home builders charge

There are two main types of building contracts in Ontario: cost-plus and fixed-price contracts.

In a fixed-price contract, you will work with the builder to plan out every detail of your home before the build begins. Everything, from the specific materials to the time allocated to each part of the project, will be set out in the contract. The builder will then estimate how much it will cost to get the job done.

As the name implies, a fixed-price contract is usually set in stone. The builder does their best to give an accurate quote, since they’re the one who will be absorbing any cost in excess to the original contract.

The second option, a cost-plus contract, charges the homeowner for both the actual cost of construction PLUS a builder’s fee. The fee is often a percentage of the cost of construction. How much builders charge can vary widely across different regions of the province, and even between individual builders in the same area.

Both methods come with pros and cons to the homeowner. A cost-plus contract is flexible. If you decide you want to change something while the build is underway, the builder can accommodate you. A fixed-price contract gives you reassurance the builder will stay on-budget, since they want to avoid absorbing any extra costs.

What about prefabricated home builders?

When it comes to prefabricated home builders, a fixed-price contract is usually the way they charge. The prefabricated building process all but eliminates the kind of variables that can drive up costs in a traditional construction project, such as wasted materials and weather delays.

However, this process also allows a prefabricated home builder to accommodate requests for change during the build. This means the homeowner gets the best of both worlds: the flexibility of cost-plus and the reassurance of fixed-price. It’s a win-win.
