About 24% of Canadians live in low-rise apartment buildings that are multi-residential buildings (MURBs) or mixed use buildings (MUBs). Significant opportunities exist to improve the energy efficiency of these buildings.
There exist complex geometries and challenges to do energy evaluations for such building and therefore there is a need for a simplified and easy-to-use procedures.
EnerGuide Energy Evaluation for MURBs/MUBs does exactly that!
Significant potential to improve the energy efficiency of MURBs/MUBs:
- Insulation upgrades
- Air sealing
- Space heating system(s)
- Domestic hot water system(s)
- Windows and doors
Projected to improve the overall energy efficiency by 15 to 30%
