Free Webinar: Electrify Efficiently
Event Description

Join Electrify My Home (EMH) for the final session of the lunchtime webinar series focused on home electrification. The Electrify Efficiently webinar series highlights the tremendous business opportunities, vital role of efficiency, and lessons learned from the field.

As heat pumps begin to proliferate the market, it’s important to recognize the importance of energy efficiency and home performance. Building systems are interdependent and it’s rare that addressing a single component will result in the most comfortable outcome.

This session will highlight the importance of incorporating home performance concepts into heat pump projects or at least the home upgrade planning process. You’ll learn about unintended consequences of not doing so, as well as the huge upsides when done correctly.
