tekmar Control Systems is committed to protecting and securing personal information that is typically an identifiable individual’s home address, personal e-mail, home or unlisted telephone number, credit card number, banking information, etc. We are accountable to balance a) the need to seriously protect personal information that is not publicly known, with b) the need to collect, use or disclose accurate personal information for reasonable business purposes.
There are times when we may need accurate personal information in order to process a purchase order, to correspond, or to assist with a product application. We are committed to obtaining your consent and protecting your personal information with appropriate safeguards. We expect that any personal information that you present is given voluntarily with the intention of initiating or continuing the relationship between you and tekmar Control Systems.
Each and every one of our employees is responsible for collecting accurate information and protecting the personal information to which they have access. We have appointed designated individuals within tekmar Control Systems to be responsible for monitoring our compliance with this policy. Information received will not be disclosed to a third party unless required to perform tekmar’s business functions or requested by a government agency with lawful authority.

Representatives are responsible for the distribution of our products. They are knowledgeable experts in both HVAC controls and the operation of mechanical systems.
If you need technical support, assistance finding a local wholesaler or contractor, help with your design and commissioning, or are looking for information on products, pricing or purchasing our products, contact your Local Representative and they will be happy to assist you.
We not only promote energy savings but we also live it. In 2002, we built a state-of-the art 60,000 square foot facility, as a prime example of how “system thinking” can guide the design and construction of a durable, energy efficient and very functional building. The HVAC system includes radiant floor heating and variable air volume cooling supplied by ground source heat pumps. In addition, the building incorporates extra insulation, shading of south-facing windows, and multiple lighting levels to improve energy efficiency. The building also acts as a test-bed for future tekmar HVAC technologies and controls.
This complete system approach, which combines smart controls with good building design, has achieved impressive results that have been sustained through five years of monitoring. The tekmar building uses less than one quarter of the energy and has one fifth of the carbon footprint of other buildings in its class and climate zone.
In an independent Building Performance Study done in 2008 our energy intensity was calculated as 94.5 ekWh/m2 and our Greenhouse Gas Emission intensity was calculated as 5.1 kgCO2/m2
That's 22% better than any similar sized building with similar activities.*
To reduce cooling loads in the summer, the tekmar roof is designed to capture rain water or be flooded with about 3 inches of water. Heat from the building evaporates the water and reduces the cooling load substantially.
*Energy intensity benchmark figures from two studies done by the Government of Canada: the 2005 CICES (Commercial and Institutional Consumption of Energy Survey) and the 2001 CIBEUS (Commercial and Institutional Building Energy Use Survey). CIBEUS - Similar Building Size and Activity is 428.1 ekWh/m2 and CICES - Similar Size in Buildings in Canada is 389.2 eKWh/m2
