Did you know?

Basements can account for about 20% of a home’s total heat loss.


What’s lurking in the basement?

If you are considering an older home, a higher heat bill could be hiding in the shadows!

Contrary to what one might think, the earth resting against your foundation is a poor insulator - which becomes a problem due to the large, uninsulated surface area in the basements of many existing homes. These basements have little or no insulation, thus leading to large heat loss and higher energy bills.

Particularly in colder regions, including Newfoundland and Labrador, having a fully insulated basement can bring energy savings in the hundreds of dollars per year.

Buying a newly constructed home with a fully insulated basement is one of the smartest decisions a new home owner can make.
