EcoLiving Launches the Home Energy Savings Calculator

April 20, 2012

The Sustainable Housing Foundation is proud to launch the EcoLiving Home Energy Savings Calculator.

Developed in partnership with Scotiabank EcoLiving and the Sustainable Housing Foundation, the tool offers sound financial advice and simultaneously good for the environment. The new online tool arms homeowners with a tailored list of energy and water saving recommendations based on the estimated costs for the upgrade, the annual utility savings and the break-even period in years when the improvement pays for itself.

“It used to be cost-prohibitive to make environmental upgrades but water and gas prices are getting so high that these retrofits are now smart investments,” says Craig Backman, Former Chair of the Sustainable Housing Foundation.
