heat loss by house area.jpg

Here’s a thought worth considering: 

You're paying for that extra insulation... whether you install it or not.

If the insulation value (R-value) of your home, cottage or commercial building is low, and your heat loss factor is high, you’re paying for it in the cost of your heating and/or cooling, in the amount of discomfort you, your family or employees experience, and in the cost to remedy any problems caused by energy loss.

How else can you count on DKGC Insulation Services ?

  • Many improvements can be made simply and inexpensively by the do-it-yourself homeowner, but some require professional attention. We’ll talk to you about what upgrades you feel comfortable doing yourself, and give you some advice about how to do it right.   

  • Our skilled group of installers will make sure that your new insulation is placed correctly, to insure that you maximize heat and energyThe benefits of this work are not only long-term, but the positive effects of an efficient installation of extra insulation will be realized as soon as you receive your first energy bill after installation.

  • When Don Koppin General Contractor is involved in a New Construction or major Renovation project, we always conduct a complete Thermal Imaging assessment before the drywalling stage, to ensure that all the gaps and leaks have been filled and nothing has been missed. 

  • We use only the most proven, environmentally-friendly and energy-efficient products and methods that are available from as local a marketplace as possible. We listen to our customers’ needs and invest in bringing our customers great products that offer tremendous value.

  • We have access to state-of-the-art technology, products and resources.  Besides more mainstream methods, we are constantly researching new or alternative products such as sheep’s wool or recycled blue jean insulation and other products made from environmentally-friendly materials such as recycled plastics, paper, glass and soya.  We use only proven, reliable distributors. 

Commercial Applications:  

  •   As we said earlier, you’re paying for insulation whether you add it or not – in high fuel bills, heat loss damages, an uncomfortable work environment and potential health issues, as well as creating a negative impact on the environment.
  • For businesses large or small, heating and cooling costs can greatly impact the bottom line, and therefore profit.
  • Many commercial buildings do not even meet the current Ontario Building Code for insulation values  - which means that profits are literally “going through the roof”  - and not in a good way!!  Obviously, the larger the building, the greater the potential heat loss. Think of the huge environmental impact made by over-use of fossil fuels in thousands of under-insulated commercial buildings!  We can do the same assessments for your commercial spaces as we do for a residential application and advise you about necessary upgrades and the costs involved.  The immediate savings can be amazing!!
