Energy Tips

Homeowners spend hundreds of dollars on their utility bills annually. In fact many homeowners consider this to be a normal event and do not even realize that energy bills and carbon footprint that they leave in the environment can be drastically reduced just by following a few easy steps. DeMark Home Ontario is happy to share our knowledge and expertise with homeowners and help you with reducing energy consumption at home and becoming more socially and environmentally responsible using our energy tips!

The good news is there is a lot you can do to save energy and money at home. The key to achieving these savings in your home is a whole-house energy efficiency approach. You must view your whole house as an energy system with independent parts. Consider that your furnace is not just heating equipment but it is a whole system which delivers and transfers heat through your house using network duct lines. However even the most energy efficient furnace will burn a lot of energy if your ducts, pipes, walls, attic, windows, and doors are not insulation properly and leak. By taking a whole-house approach you can ensure that your house energy consumption is reduced to minimal and the savings will be noticeable. Start making these changes today and reduce energy consumption by up to 45% with the help of our experts.

Our team of professionals will help you in selecting the right equipment for your home including Furnace, Air Conditioner and Hot Water Heater. We will also provide you with the reliable service on your equipment and tips on energy efficiency that will not only make your home comfortable but also energy efficient. Saving energy can be very easy with DeMark Home Ontario Inc. Please select the topic that most interests you from the list below or take a few minutes to contact us by email or phone.
