Event description

Description

REEP House for Sustainable Living is REEP's super-insulated, water-wise century brick home and education centre at 20 Mill Street, Kitchener. REEP House has been renovated to showcase energy and water innovations that any home can adopt. Deep retrofits have reduced energy used for space heating and water heating by 86%, reduced costs by 85%, and cut carbon emissions by 54%. You will find working demonstrations of household energy-efficient and water management technologies. Also, see how reclaimed materials and natural landscaping can create unique design features in and outside of the home.

As you walk around REEP House, you will have the chance to put your hands inside walls, analyse the competing data and quality of installed products, learn about the REEP House retrofit design strategy and ask plenty of questions. REEP House is all about helping you find solutions for improving your own home or building.

We explore the significance of insulating and sealing the envelope, look at options for improving the quality of your home's heat and water use, and have a free-flowing discussion of some things we learned during the retrofitting process.

The event will include a full tour of REEP House and its many features, including:

  • Water Management (outdoor) – including discussion of municipal stormwater credits
  • Wise Water Use (indoor)
  • Water Heating
  • Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning
  • Insulation, Draft-proofing, Windows, and Doors
  • Lighting and Appliances
  • Green Materials and Heritage
