Retrofit: How Much Insulation for Efficient and Affordable Heat Pumps?

March 12 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

New training session about Step 1 of the AECB Retrofit Step-by-Step approach – how much fabric first retrofit is needed to support efficient and affordable heat pumps?

The AECB has long championed the ‘Fabric First’ approach to retrofit, so how does it now have an approach that essentially proposes minimal insulation and a Heat Pump? The AECB calls this a Step 1 retrofit, and it is part of their “Retrofit Step-by-Step” approach.

Come and hear speaker Tim Martel of the AECB explain why the AECB includes this method in the context of its other standards and how it is achieved. He will cover which aspects of the design ensure that the heat pump running cost is affordable and will go into some detail about the tools used.

There will be some examples and plenty of time for questions. We expect a healthy debate!
