Wed, 30 Nov 2016, 8:00 AM – Fri, 2 Dec 2016, 5:00 PM EST
Coolearth will be presenting a seminar on our net-zero conversion of a semi-detached residential building as well as hosting a booth as part of the Passive House Canada Pavilion from November 30th to December 2nd.
Our seminar will take place on November 30 from 9-10:15am in the South Building (code w300). If you miss it, look for us throughout Construct Canada at the Passive House Canada pavillion at 4319.
Introduction for the seminar:
Ontario’s climate action plan seeks to improve the energy efficiency and performance of buildings in order to reduce Greenhosue Gas Emissions. The province has identified that we need to take all buildings to Net-Zero or near Net-Zero Energy Use. This means upgrading the leaky, badly insulated homes which pre-dominate much of Toronto and were built after World War 2. We will present a Toronto semi-detached home that we are doing an envelope upgrade on with the aim of making it Net-Zero. We are doing this by adding external insulation, making the home air tight, replacing the original single-pane windows with new high performance windows and doors, installing efficient heating and ventilation equipment, and mounting solar panels on the roof. The upgrades to the home will make it more comfortable, improve the appearance of the home, and reduce energy consumption and therefore lower Greenhouse Gas Emissions.
