Keep the HEAT Inside!
With the cold weather approaching, many of us are prepping our homes for the winter season. A Home Energy Assessment is the best way to discover how to save energy in your home. The Home Energy Assessment Toolkit (HEAT) from the St. Albert Public Library gives residents the tools, tips and guidance to do their own home audit and determine where efficiency improvements can be made.
A typical Alberta home uses 63 per cent of home energy on heating. Knowing where you can improve on home heating is a triple win. An energy efficient home is less expensive to run, more comfortable to live in and more environmentally friendly.
The HEAT kit includes nine different tools that can determine how you use energy within your home, along with a manual that will guide you through how to use each tool. One of these tools is an Infrared (IR) Thermometer that can locate heat-loss trouble areas, even in hard-to-reach places.
Three kits are currently available for sign out at the St. Albert Public Library. Once you sign out a kit, you will have two weeks to examine your energy use!
Make your home more comfortable and energy efficient by keeping your valuable heat inside!
