Energy Saving Tips

Home Heating Systems

Your heating system is usually the largest energy user in your home, so choosing an energy-efficient unit is especially important. When shopping for a new gas heating system, compare efficiencies and installation costs of various models. Look for models that are “Design Certified” by CSA America to ensure safety, reliability and efficiency.

Most homes have central heating systems which generate heat at a central point and distribute it, usually by air, to each room in the house. With attractive, energy-efficient natural gas space heaters, logs and fireplaces available, many homeowners have gone to zone heating where individual heaters only heat the rooms being occupied while the central system maintains a reduced, minimal temperature throughout the house.
