RENO NANAIMO Old Heating System not putting out the same consistent heat as it used to? Older heating systems are not necessarily operating to the same efficiency as newer technology. Some new gas furnaces are now up to 97% efficient. So, for every dollar spent on heating, .97c worth of heat is being transferred into heat for your home. Some older units could be only 60% efficient, which means up to 40% of each dollar you spend on heating your home is not being output as heat, therefore – wasted! The more efficient your heating system is, the more energy is saved and that means more savings on your heating and cooling bill. You can have greater efficiency and save money with your heating system. There are various options to choose from: A stand alone High Efficiency Gas Furnace, an Air Source Heat Pump with an Electric or Gas Furnace back up or, a Ductless Heat Pump that requires no ducting for more efficient Heating and Cooling. There are rebates available through the LiveSmartBC Energy Incentive Program and through Fortis BC – we can advise which rebates apply to you and how to navigate the process. But these both have deadlines that are coming up fast so don’t wait or they will be gone. Call for a complimentary consultation.

RENO NANAIMO Hardwood Flooring Innovations

24 MILLION

DOLLAR

Nowadays, homeowners renovating their homes often look to wood flooring to replace existing floors. Hardwood is coveted by buyers, and its clean, inviting look makes it a neutral design element that goes with many different types of decor. Today’s hardwood flooring is not the hardwood of the past. There are many options from which to choose, including varied colors, types of wood, patterns, and inlays. In addition, innovations in sealants enable hardwood to be durable and hold up better against the daily grind.

About 25 years ago, a homeowner basically had to settle for wood flooring that was solid oak strips at 2.25 inches wide. The strips were nailed in place by a carpenter and finished on site. Now, more than half of hardwood is fabricated and prefinished at a factory and is much easier to install -- even by the homeowner himself.

For homeowners interested in going green, hardwood flooring also presents many options. A growing trend is using reclaimed wood that is recycled and then refinished into new items. Lumber may be reclaimed from old buildings, railroads, barns, homes, and even river bottoms. The varied history of the wood adds to its aesthetic appeal. It’s important for homeowners to know that the price point for hardwood will vary depending on species and finish. However, the way the boards are cut will also be a consideration for homeowners. Plainsawn or flatsawn boards have growth rings that run at anywhere from 0 to 45-degree angles to the wide surfaces of the board, with lots of loops and swirls. Quartersawn boards have rings that run from 45- to 90-angles and are not as lively in pattern. Quartersawn boards will expand in thickness depending on moisture and temperature. Plainsawn will shrink and swell widthwise. Quartersawn tend to take wear better and more evenly, contributing to their typically more expnesive price tag. Homeowners can also choose among engineered wood products, which are essentially several layers of wood veneer adhered to a solid backing of plywood and sealed. This layered construction can make engineered flooring more stable and durable than traditional hardwood flooring. That means it can be used in rooms where hardwood was long frowned upon, like basements and bathrooms.

Where brands, selection, and value come together.

HARDWOOD

The range of styles and colors is also very extensive. Planks can be chosen in thin strips or wider options. Native hardwoods are available, as are offshore woods from different countries. Finishes can also be customized with higher gloss or matte choices.

CARPET

Wood flooring will continue to garner mass appeal and be the preference of many homeowners. With new innovations and availability, there are more options than ever for discerning homeowners.
