In 2020, Tracy Johnson and her family moved into an 80-year old home with a new extension on Sammon Avenue. It was not just any home reno they had just finished, however, but one of Canada’s first EnerPHit homes. EnerPHit is a certification program for existing homes that incorporate Passive House design principles and components into retrofits. Passive House in turn is an international standard recognized by the United Nations for creating optimally healthy, climate-resilient, affordable, and energy-efficient buildings.

Today Tracy is enjoying the benefits of their EnerPHit passive home retrofit, and sharing her family's experience with others who might be interested in doing something similar. Don’t miss this fascinating and informative webinar, where you'll learn...

  • how Tracy and her family arrived at the decision to build a passive house
  • lessons they learned that could be applied to similar houses in The Pocket and across Toronto
  • information on EnerPhit – what it is and how it works
  • her home’s post-retrofit results and benefits

Date:  Tuesday, April 25

Time:  8 – 9 pm

Where:  On Zoom, RSVP required - see above for zoom link.
