Hello! My name is John Scott, I am the founder of Truco Storm Windows.
Truco Storm Windows was formed simply to help people save money.
I found myself unemployed in the middle of December, sitting at home with the furnace seemingly running constantly, while the house still felt cold.
Being new to Calgary, I didn’t realize how cold the winters were or how ineffective the average double pane windows were at keeping the cold out.
I needed to do something about this! I developed prototypes from materials down at the local hardware store and installed them in my own house. The effects were almost immediately. The house felt noticeably warmer and the furnace wasn’t running nearly as often.
The lightbulb came on! This product could help people save money, stay warmer and decrease their greenhouse gas emissions, cutting down on global warming. I needed to come up with a company name that was fitting, unique and memorable.
The purpose of the product was to make the home more comfortable, for the home owner to experience “True Comfort“. I also wanted to create a company I could hand down to my son and grandson. So, I came up with Truco which is also a combination of my grandsons’ names, I thought this was fitting, as it would hopefully be his company one day.
