What is a Deep Energy Retrofit?

Energy Efficiency For Homes

Homes and buildings are the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Markham today, accounting for 49% of total emissions. Within the residential sector, emissions are mainly a direct result of fuel consumption for space and water heating.

Deep energy retrofits create more sustainable homes through improvements to the building shell and energy system. These upgrades can lower your heating and energy bills, improve home comfort and reduce emissions.
