When I look around Nelson, I certainly see some opportunities given the older building stock, but you know what really makes it obvious?  The amount of icicles that were hanging off rooftops.  What typically causes a roof to be warm is air from inside the house seeping into the attic and heating it up.  And what this can mean is that the house would greatly benefit from attic insulation. 

Insulation is of course just one part of the equation, thankfully because it isn’t all that interesting.  Do you know what is though?  A heat pump of course!

You can come out to a Free Energy Savings Event on May 30th at 7pm at the Prestige Lakeside Resort in Nelson to learn all about how to give your home an energy make over and meet your local heat pump and insulation contractors at the same time.  We give lots of door prizes away and you can access 50% off an energy assessment as well!

The EcoSave Program has been around since 2012 and we have over 550 homeowners who have registered, some of those people are saving an average of 30% on their utility bills.  Doors open at 7pm and presentations on heat pumps, energy assessments, rebates and financing all begin at 7:30pm.  Hope to see you there!
