Is your home drafty and lacking insulation? If so, air sealing and insulation upgrades of your existing
home can offer a great opportunity for you to reduce space-conditioning energy, improve durability and reduce utility bills.
Although simple weatherization work can be performed by a homeowner and more extensive repairs or renovations will typically involve a contractor, it is important to understand your options and incorporate best practices to achieve the full benefits a more insulated home can offer.
To support better workmanship practices, Energy Save New West is pleased to share a new online video from FortisBC and BC Hydro’s Home Renovation Rebate Program (presentation by RDH Building Science) that describes results of their field inspections and discusses best practices for air sealing and insulation retrofits.
