Kerr Smart Energy Ltd. is a wholesale distributor of HVAC equipment for residential and commercial applications. It operates throughout Canada under the names Kerr Controls Ltd., RL Fulton Equipment and Kerr Smart Energy Ltd. The company is privately held and headquartered in Truro, Nova Scotia.

Kerr has a full line of gas and oil-fired furnaces and boilers. They can be used alone or in combination with existing oil or electric systems.

Kerr’s oil-fired furnaces are all Energy Star qualified, with the Paradigm condensing oil-fired furnace able to achieve up to 95.8 percent AFUE. The Kerr oil-fired furnace has an efficiency rating of up to 88.6 percent AFUE. Kerr’s line of wood furnaces and boilers are available in both use-alone and combination models. Kerr’s heating equipment is sold through a distributor network in the United States and Canada.
Kerr’s furnaces are largely backed by a limited lifetime warranty, but you should consult your dealer for details on specific models.
