Economics of High Efficiency Homes
Event Description

Do you always hear about Net Zero, LEED, Passive house, or high efficiency homes with skepticism, because they are too costly? For this Superhero Series event we invited Axel Sorensen, from Homes by Sorensen, to share his experience building these types of homes, and through a pandemic with a surge in lumber costs. Do you have questions about how to build without breaking the bank? Are you concerned about lowering the quality of the finishes if you commit your budget to energy efficiency? Join the Canada Green Building Council to break some myths related to the economics of high efficiency homes on November 4th at 5h30pm (MST).
