Do you have an older furnace? Older furnaces are typically only 40% to 60% heat efficient. A new energy efficient furnace will operate at 80% to 90% plus energy efficiency, with the added benefits of reducing green house gases and saving you money on your heating bill. Ensuring you maximum heat for minimum fuel use, we calculate your home’s heat and distribution requirements, and deliver a solution that is right for your needs.
The standard building code for insulation in older homes was from R12 to R20 (4 to 6 inches). Today’s Power Smart™ standard is R40 (12 inches). Insulating your home to the R40 standard keeps the heat in during the winter and the heat out in the summer. Your home will feel warmer during cold winter months
and cooler during summer’s heat, saving you money and increasing your family’s comfort.
