Cooling Strategies for Lower Mainland Houses
July 7, 2020

This technical primer provides an overview of the opportunities, challenges, and considerations for the use of heat pumps as a low-carbon solution for heating, cooling, and domestic hot water production for high-performance houses in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland. With building heating and hot water systems are one of Canada’s largest sources of carbon emissions – accounting for 12% of national GHG emissions – this primer looks specifically at the costing, design and application of heat pumps.
