Southern Ontario Home Builder Claims Minimum of 50% Energy Savings on New Custom Built Homes

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


As North American households face heating bills averaging at least 20 % higher than last years; the connection between household energy use and energy prices is evident to everyone.

Energy efficiency remains the quickest, cheapest, cleanest way to help lower home energy bills, extend the nations energy supplies, bring down energy costs and fatten homeowner’s wallet.

Energy efficiency shouldn’t be a headache – in fact, it can be very rewarding. Not only is increasing the energy efficiency of home a step toward better use of fuel and less pollution, it also offers greater security and independence, lower energy bills and makes a home more comfortable place to live.

“Retrofitting energy efficiency can be expensive, but when you build a new house, it is relatively easy and cheap to make it energy efficient”, states Harvey Juric, President of ICFhome.ca. Harvey is a veteran builder, whose company has been building energy efficient homes in Southern Ontario since 1990.

He goes on to say, “The task is achieved by marrying several of the latest technologies and developments in home construction”.

The development and increasing use of Insulated Concrete Forms in construction is one of the main breakthroughs in high energy efficiency in new homes.

These “forms” are Styrofoam blocks that get filled with steel reinforced concrete and form the shape of the building. They double the insulation value, triple the sound resistance and quadruple the strength of the building.

Another important component in energy efficient homes is Radiant Floor Heating; which the industry claims will alone achieve savings of 20% on the heating bill. Not to mention that it gives an unprecedented comfort during those cold and long winter nights.

Add to this a High Efficiency (98%) Tank-Less Water Heater that can heat your whole house while giving you an endless stream of hot water; and the picture gets a little clearer.

Complete the package with a Heat Recovery Ventilator connected to a sophisticated “Earth Energy” system that uses a series of underground pipes in order to pre-condition the incoming air.

This simple solution preheats your incoming air in the winter and pre-colls it in the summer.

Combine these four energy efficient breakthroughs and the result is a home that will slash at least 50% of an average home heating bills. A home that will stand up to fire, noise, sun, wind, rain, snow, bugs, mould and inevitable Acts of God like, earthquakes and hurricanes; A home that is safer, stronger and healthier than any other home ever seen.

“The only question left to answer is how much does it all cost?” Juric says confidently, “Based on past experience, your initial investment for this type of home is a little more (approximately 10% more compared to conventionally built home) or considerably less when think of long term costs, not only for you and your family but also for the planet we live on”.

Juric further explains, “The “payback period” in fuel and maintenance would be between seven to fifteen years but considering the alternative of keeping the status quo during predictions of a looming energy crisis, it is a very reasonable and logical solution”

When buying a new home, consciously choose to make informed decisions concerning the future of you and your family. A little bit of planning and common sense can go a long way in making a home more energy efficient and paying dividends for years to come.
