Energy Auditors

An energy auditor is someone who can visit your existing home or commercial building, collect data and use a variety of diagnostic tools to identify energy saving opportunities in the building. Using the information collected, and often including some sort of computer energy modelling, an energy auditor will be able to make recommendations for energy efficiency upgrades you can implement and predict the energy savings you would realize from these upgrades.

Natural Resources Canada promotes the EnerGuide rating system as the gold standard for residential energy audits, and the current federal government has committed to providing up to one million free EnerGuide home evaluations. Details of that program have yet to be announced.”

    Enjoy a charcuterie board and wine ordered locally from DeLuca’s or whatever snacks and drink you prefer from home.
    In Zoom we will run through our AGM business. This normally takes less than 30 minutes and is a great chance to meet our board of directors.
    After the meeting, walk around Gather.Town for the chance to chat with them and other attendees. Here, you can opt in to join facilitated discussions related to SBM’s objectives and help set our work on a path that reflects the views of the sustainable building community. Or you just keep catching up with folks you have not gotten to mingle with for far too long.
    Please note, that some firewalls do prevent Gather.Town from working, hence our using Zoom for the AGM portion. Gather.Town works best on Chrome and if you are using a tablet or phone your camera may not work.
