Home Remodeling for Resiliency and Fuel Switching
This 1-hour on-demand class provides an overview for homeowners, as well as building professionals, who are interested in fuel-switching and retrofitting homes for improved resiliency in the face of fire, smoke, and power outages.
Learn about how home performance retrofits and transitioning away from natural gas can make the homes we live in healthier, safer, and more resilient, all while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving thermal comfort and indoor air quality. We cover enclosure upgrade strategies – air sealing, insulation, and window replacements – along with lighting and appliance selection guidance. We also discuss the implications, benefits, and challenges of electrification, plus project phasing and costs.
