If you are interested in embarrassingly low heating bills and supporting Green Technology, we can install



Geotherm Heat Pumps. Depending on the heat loss of the building a Geotherm Heat Pump can be as economical as $400 a year to operate.

A Geotherm Heat Pump can be used as a Forced Air Heating System, a Hydronic (Hot Water) Heating System or a combination of both. For example, we can design a system using a Geotherm Heat Pump that gives you infloor heating, a towel warmer, and a forced air system so that you can take advantage of the air-conditioning feature that comes as bonus with every Geotherm Heat Pump.

Another big energy saver that is often over looked is the

. The building code requires that you install either bathroom exhaust fans or an HRV. Exhaust fans blow warm air straight outside and cold replacement air leaks in through cracks around windows and doors creating drafts that will make you feel cold and causing the thermostat to be set higher than required.

The HRV exhausts the stale air and brings in the required amount of fresh air to balance the living space. As the stale air is exhausted it passes through a heat exchanger, which transfers the heat to the incoming fresh air. The fresh air is then distributed through the ducting system eliminating any cold drafts.
