Geertsma Homes Ltd. Brings High Performance Homes to Belleville

October 29, 2014


BELLEVILLE, ON – Geertsma Homes Ltd. today unveiled a new high performance model home designed to maximize a homebuyer’s comfort while significantly reducing energy use.


The Optimum Discovery Home features several leading-edge building design and construction technologies, offering homebuyers improved comfort, better indoor air quality, and tools to efficiently control energy use, resulting in lower utility bills.


“Geertsma Homes Ltd. is an industry leader who is committed to building homes to higher standards and incorporates a whole-home approach using energy-efficient technologies and strategies, such as high efficient mechanical systems, high efficient tankless water heaters and increased insulation in main floor and basement walls to build homes that are more durable, sustainable and are more likely to increase in value over the years,” said Tony Engelsdorfer, Project Manager for Geertsma Homes Ltd.


The Optimum Discovery Home is located in the new Heritage Park subdivision at 4 Walnut Crescent, just off Farnham Road in Belleville and will be open for viewing Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10:00 am – 2:30 pm and Thursdays and Saturdays from 2:30 pm – 6:00 pm. Call Geertsma Homes Ltd. at 613-966-8420 or go to www.geertsma.com for more information.


“Geertsma Homes Ltd. is building high performance homes in their Heritage Park subdivision to offer their customers exceptional value for their investment and tomorrow’s homes today,” said Sarah Vreugdenhil, Director of Marketing, Geertsma Homes Ltd. “Homebuyers typically look for aesthetic finishes, but Geertsma Homes Ltd. goes beyond this by using innovative construction techniques and materials to build homes 20 per cent more energy efficient than required under the current building code.”


The Optimum Discovery Homewas built with the support of Union Gas’ Optimum Home Program, which partners some of Ontario’s leading builders with expert building science consultants.


“Through the Optimum Home Program, participating builders can solidify their position as influential industry leaders by demonstrating that homes can be built to a higher standard” said Dave Simpson, general manager of in-franchise sales, marketing and customer care at Union Gas. “In turn, homebuyers benefit by living in homes that are more comfortable, healthy and durable with lower energy bills throughout the lifetime of their home.”
