Single Family Electrification Retrofits
The benefits of electrifying your home are numerous: improved health from reducing air pollution inside your home, increased comfort from using heat pump heating and cooling, and lowering your impact on climate and the environment by reducing emissions. The process of electrifying your home can start with a deep retrofit including insulation and energy efficiency upgrades, or by switching one appliance at a time; this presentation aims to provide an overview of the costs and strategies for all pathways. Electrifying on a tight budget is possible – there are affordable, renter friendly electrification solutions. Electrifying while staying on the same electrical panel is also possible – with selection of power efficient products and the use of load sharing devices you can be mindful of your home’s “Watt Diet”. Affordable resilience is also possible with vehicle to grid charging and portable battery and solar kits for power during emergencies. This presentation will equip the viewer a selection of products and strategies that can be used in their own home to electrify.
