Home Energy Retrofits
Considering renovating your home? About one-third of homeowners in Kamloops will complete some form of renovation this year; however, despite the many benefits and available incentives, few will include energy retrofits with their renovations. A renovation that includes installing new windows and adding additional insulation could save 18% off your energy bill; a deep retrofit that improves the thermal performance of your home's exteernal walls could save as much as 80%!
Why Energy Retrofits?
- save money
- increase comfort (less temperature swings)
- increase sound proofing
- reduce greenhouse gas emissions
